Extra health support is important throughout your dog's life. As puppies, they can be stressed: leaving mum, moving into a new home, getting de-sexed and vaccinated…we need to help their early growth be less stressful.
As adults, lots of dogs have seasonal allergies, anxiety, skin conditions, digestive issues, bad breath…And, as dogs are generally living longer, they tend to have more health issues, often affecting mobility, energy and the brain.
Our research-based, vet-formulated daily health jellies, support your dog’s health, from pup to senior, right from your own kitchen.
Vet formulated. Clinically effective.
A therapeutic dose is the amount of a nutraceutical used clinically to produce a response. All the doses in the bestie health jellies are based on veterinary clinical experience and published research.
That's typically different from a treat you might see marketed as a 'calming treat'. Effectiveness depends whether there are therapeutic amounts of the constituents and on the severity of the clinical condition. However, if the treat can be fed any time you like, (unlike our health jellies which need to be given daily), then it's likely not strong enough to really have an effect.
Our health jellies are developed for Bestie Kitchen by holistic vet, Dr Kathy Cornack. She draws on key research studies as well as her 35 years in complementary medicine for dogs, cats and other small animals.
"I love the jellies as a simple, easy and palatable way to give clinical levels of multiple nutraceuticals to dogs with commonly seen health conditions, such as cognitive decline, halitosis and stress."
Dr Kathy Cornack, Holistic Vets Newcastle

We're an Australian dietary supplement company for dogs and cats, and we believe in good food as the basis of good health. What we set out to do at bestie, was make it easy to feed healthy treats and complete and balanced meals, right from your own kitchen. (Using lots of research, holistic vet and animal nutritionist input to do it of course! No empty fads here!)
We manufacture in small batches, in coastal Newcastle, using Australian ingredients where we can (which is mostly). We use carbon neutral shipping and compostable satchels.
We're also super-approachable, so if you have questions, we always answer.
