The HYPOALLERGENIC Balancing Pre-mix

9 reviews

Improve your dog's gut-skin health with the hypoallergenic, algae-packed raw feeding pre-mix you add to meat, to make complete and balanced meals.

If your dog has a food intolerance or allergy, or is scratching, rubbing and licking - something that's becoming increasingly common - then a hypoallergenic diet may be the answer.

While we don't yet have a full understanding of the gut–skin axis, a growing number of studies show a close relationship between gastrointestinal imbalance and skin problems. But it can be time consuming and hit-and-miss to make hypoallergenic meals yourself, that still give your dog all the nutrients they need.

The bestie Hypoallergenic pre-mix has been formulated to be simply added to muscle meat and add what the meat doesn't have to make complete and balanced meals.

However, it goes beyond complete and balanced. Its algae-rich hypoallergenic blend of  17 whole-foods deliver extra nutrients that support good gut and skin health. It's why our pre-mix is often more expensive than others. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for...

Nutrients that support the gut-skin connection

Biologically active marine algal extracts that strengthen innate and adaptive immune responses and enhance the barrier function of the intestinal mucosa.

Spirulina, a blue-green algae that enhances immune and gut health

Sunflower and hempseedsfor omega 6 & 3 fatty acids to promote coat and skin health

Olive fruit extract, rich in polyphenolic compounds to act as a prebiotic (along with carrot fibre), and an antibacterial

Cod liver oil and algae for DHA & EPA fatty acids to reduce inflammation and support joint and brain health

Sunflower lecithin for choline from to support neurological health and help absorption of essential fatty acids

Nutritional yeast for B-complex vitaminsto help reduce inflammation

As well as kale, pumpkin, carrot, shiitake and kelp for key micronutrients

Rashes and itchy skin more common

"The prevalence of canine atopic dermatitis in developed countries has been growing constantly over the last few decades. Genetic predisposition represents only part of the problem, and environmental factors are believed to be an important boost to the rapid rise in atopic dogs.

Although a complete understanding of the gut–skin axis has not yet been achieved, a growing number of studies demonstrate a close relationship between gastrointestinal imbalance and skin diseases."

What do we see? Commonly, rashes and itchy skin.

Not only that, while it often starts seasonally, as time progresses, it becomes year-round, and more severe. Secondary infections, both bacterial and yeast, frequently develop as self-trauma and inflammation makes the skin more vulnerable.

    • What's the name of your dog or cat? Oscar
    • Can you share anything more about the reason you switched to bestie...was there something going on health-wise? Vet was concerned with high levels of liver enzymes, which has improved since being on Bestie Balancer for approx 3 yrs. the Hypoallergenic is the next level. Thank you.

    Switched to Hypoallergenic for good

    Trialled this product recently - convinced it’s helped my elderly dog. At 17 his tummy has been very sensitive, I had been using numerous expensive natural ingredients in his food to sort him out. The Bestie Hypoallergenic has it all in one product that’s easy to use and is really helping my old boy. It is well worth it and should also help reduce the licking. Thank you Bestie.

    • What's the name of your dog or cat? Elly
    • Can you share anything more about the reason you switched to bestie...was there something going on health-wise? Elly is a rescue dog and she has lots of allergies. I saw this product on line and when they offered a free sample of the hypoallergenic range I thought I would give it a try. It works well - and Elly readily eats it.

    Softer coat and firm poos

    Had a great experience with Bestie Kitchen. Amanda really cares about her product and what's best for your pet. The free offer of the hypoallergenic range was a great introduction to the product. The results have been great with our pet's coat feeling softer and looking better and her poos are firm but not really dry looking as they were before.

    Bestie Kitchen

    That's brilliant. I am so glad it's helping Elly and thanks so much for your feedback too. I really appreciate it.

    • What's the name of your dog or cat? Luna
    • Can you share anything more about the reason you switched to bestie...was there something going on health-wise? Luna has a chronic licking issue (people, toys, beds, floor, anything really). It arises from bad anxiety & is a stress reliever (but annoying to humans) with bad allergies, sneezing, tear staining & constant hiccups & sensitive skin, proof is in the pudding & why We changed

    It's Amazing & Really Works 5☆ Out of 5☆

    Balancer Hypo-allergenic is Amazing! Luna's hair is thick, dull & at times feels wirey. A Maltese × Shih Tzu, whose hair is more Shih Tzu than Maltese, but it's unruly hair & hard to deal with. Its like the difference between thick wavy African American hair & thin silky straight Caucasian hair. Since trialling the 100g trial pack of Balancer Hypo-allergenic Luna's hair is now baby soft, smooth & silky & has brightened. Her dull black/grey patches are starting to shine & I think her chronic licking of everything has reduced in the past week (will update) and Lu has only been on 7g a day of the balancer as only 1 of her 2 daily meals can take Balancer. Can't wait to see what a full daily dose will do. Thank you Amanda & Bestie Kitchen. We've tried everything food, chews, vitamins & oils. And Amanda is so accommodating, I wanted a 1kg pack, but only 500g were available so she sent 2 for the price of the 1kg. 5☆ out of 5☆ = Balancer 5☆ out of 5☆ = customer service.

    Highly recommend

    I was already using the All Rounder meal topper and the girls were loving it so when this one came out I was keen to try it. I'm not sure if Im imagining less foot itching or whether this, but regardless I'm happy to know I'm giving my girls the best possible nutrition.

    Oh, that's awesome news! Thanks for that. Here's to continued success with less itching...
