The ALLROUNDER Balancing Pre-mix For Cats

18 reviews

The raw feeding supplement that gives you confidence.

22 all-natural ingredients in one supplement, that adds what meat doesn’t have, to make complete and balanced meals. The Allrounder does more than complete and balance. It's also loaded with extras, to help support good joint, gut and immune system health.

    When added to meat protein, the 22 whole foods in the bestie supplement gives your cat:

    The right mix of macronutrients – fat, protein and carbs, including the 10 essential amino acids

    Fatty acids – the right quantity and ratio of omega 6 and 3

    All the essential minerals including the right quantity and ratio of calcium and phosphorus

    The essential vitamins, including A, D, E

    They also get extras:

    Antioxidants to help reduce inflammation, and support a healthy immune system - important to both puppies and senior cats.

    Chondroitin - helps give cartilage its elasticity, and supports good joint mobility.

    Vitamin C - when cats are stressed or as they age, they become less proficient at producing their own supply of vitamin C, an important antioxidant.

    Pre- and probiotics, important for good gut health.

    And especially for cats:Sea kelp for arachidonic acid, cricket protein for taurine, nutritional yeast for thiamine, cranberry and apple cider vinegar for urinary tract health.

    Apple powder, carrot powder, bone broth powder, MCHA bone meal powder, sweet potato powder, cod liver oil, organic wheatgrass powder, cricket meal, organic pumpkin powder, kale powder, nutritional yeast, cranberry powder, probiotic (bacillus coagulans), organic nettle powder, green lipped mussel, organic chicory powder, kelp powder, kakadu plum powder, astragalus, apple cider vinegar powder, broccoli powder, iodised salt.

    Just add water, meat, mix and serve. When you're in the swing, you'll think it's as convenient as biscuits from a bag. (But better for health.)

    There's a table on the pack with feed quantities for weight and protein type.

    After a while on the bestie Allrounder, people report their cats have more energy and typically lose weight and become leaner. Plus, their coats are shinier, their guts are happier, and their poos are smaller and less stinky. Now that's a good thing!

    One of the reasons is that this is an anti-inflammatory diet and it also combats oxidative stress.

      Keeping my cats healthy~

      I adopted two kittens and, after struggling for months to find food that would help to keep weight off the first and put weight on the second, I discovered Bestie Kitchen. I'm so happy with the results. Both of my kittens are happy and healthy, and I feel great knowing that even if I'm in a rush, I'm able to give them a raw and balanced diet.

      • What's the name of your dog or cat? Toby the Birman
      • Can you share anything more about the reason you switched to bestie...was there something going on health-wise? Cat was rather thin and lethargic. Bestie now comprises half his food - still transitioning! He is now heavier and more active. I am very pleased with this product- just add meat and you are done!

      Great product

      Excellent. Fast delivery. Good communication.

      • Can you share anything more about the reason you switched to bestie...was there something going on health-wise? My smaller cat, Ella loves raw chicken and so i needed a supplement which could improve her food to make it nourishing.

      Highly Recomend

      My experience with Bestie was very good. Communicative through the whole process amd my cats like the product. You might need to play around with the amount to get to you pets tastes. Also i love that it is an independent business :)

      Thanks for that feedback; and yes, I will make a note about playing around with amounts to address a specific cat's tastes.

      Great in so many ways. Our cat loves the product and he’s so well since he started taking the supplement. We tried a sample pack to start with and there were no instructions, so we were just sprinkling it on his food. He loved it anyway. Now that we’re serving it as recommended, he’s enjoying it even more. The nutritional advice and follow-up emails have been very informative. We couldn’t fault the product or service in any way.

      My kitten feel good about the taste

      Worry my kitten hate the taste, but luckily he thinks it's quite good. Still takes time to encourage him to eat fresh meat instead of cans.

      I'm glad to hear that; thanks for letting us know! Over time this raw feeding should get easier - for him and you.

      3 out of 4 cats won’t eat it

      Pretty disappointed that only 1 out of my 4 cats would eat the meat I put this supplement in. One cat stopped eating for 2 days after eating this. I gave up after several attempts and the only cat that would eat it started refusing it on the 3rd day??

      Bestie Kitchen

      Thanks for your review Tasha, and sorry to hear it's not an immediate hit...I've touched base with you separately to offer some transition tips. As you probably know, cats imprint their feeding habits very early so some can be slow to change to new food...

      Happy Cats

      Good experience - lots of information on how to introduce the Allrounder into the cats diet. Liked the daily emails from Bestie that came whilst waiting for it to arrive. Cats loved their new food from first try. It’s been an easy transition. Happy cats, happy owner!

      It’s a nice thick gravy and mixes well but it needs more

      Crude protein should be around 44% crude fat 17% crude fibre 0.3% and total carbohydrates 3.6% my cats are eating it,so I’m happier feeding raw then anything else good value for money.

      Bestie Kitchen

      Hi and thanks for trying bestie. We're really thrilled that your cats are eating it. Just a query though re your statement about what cats need; where did you get those figures from? For AAFCO, the min requirement on a DMB for protein is actually 26% and 30% (maintenance and growth respectively); and fat is 9%; with no minimums in the profile for fibre and carbs. In NRC, (on which AAFCO is based) it’s 40% min (adult cats) with 50% recommended and fat recommended at 22.5%. Given that the balancer is fed with meat, the nutrients provided by the combined meal are important, not the ones for the supplement on its own. Using lean beef as an example, bestie for cats and beef provides 65% protein, 26% fat, 1.3% carbs and and 3% fibre.

      Allrounder balancing supplement for cats

      My 2 took about a week to get used to product. They were raw fed once a day beforehand but having this added was a bit of stress at time. Re amount required. It can be a bit much considering amount of food to mix Bestie into. Cats are smaller in general compared to dogs. Second thing I'd also already mentioned to Amanda is feed recommendation for various proteins as currently limited to 4. She is working on it. All in all a great product for cats My 2 look and feel better already. Now meowing when I get Bestie out from cupboard at mealtime - no meat in sight yet. Highly recommended for cat owners who want to raw feed but am worried about nutritional gaps.

      03/23/2021

      Bestie Kitchen

      Thanks so much for your feedback; and yes, we'll be adding the feed guide for those extra proteins soon. Good to hear you got through a transition phase and that your cats like it!

      Picky ****

      We have a picky **** and we didn’t think she would like the Bestie because of the natural smell of the powder, but after a sniff or two she clears her bowl, leaving it squeaky clean.

      A comparison

      So I took the cats off Bestie at the beginning of the COVID-19 panic where there was no mince in sight! Put them back on it a week ago and there was a huge turn around. Mr Frankie became so affectionate (which happened when he was on Bestie before) and Miss Juno became more playful! Also their litter did not have to be cleaned out constantly (less poo and wees) and they were drinking far less water. The comparison from feeding them Bestie then back to tinned food now back to Bestie was incredible!

      Bestie Kitchen

      Thank you Yas! That's a great comparison...thanks for sharing. We're glad it's making a difference to them (And you. More cuddles!)

      Clearly what is Best!

      Amazing It took a few days (perhaps a week) to transition both cats over to bestie. After this they were really enjoying their meals. Their litter required less cleaning and they were not drinking nearly as much water. As a cat lover I felt great knowing that everything they were consuming was contributing positively to their health and wellbeing

      That is excellent Yasmin - thank you! So glad it was a hit with both your cats.

      longer lead time needed for cats?

      Amanda's support and advice was excellent. My cats were very fussy. We tried a lot of different ideas. They only ate it with the kangaroo mince and I had to give them 1/2 of what they needed. My cats are very fussy anyway. They also eat very bland food usually so I think a longer run in with them might have been helpful.

      04/03/2020

      Bestie Kitchen

      Thanks Jen, cats can be fussy! We learnt from these earlier trial experiences so now recommend the longer transition schedule and provide a complimentary pack of nutritional yeast with the first order, (to sprinkle on top), to help those fussy cats make the transition.

      Another Winner

      Sully loved the Bestie supplement for cats and he’s not an easy boy to please! he can be very picky with his meals but he didn’t hesitate to eat every meal with Bestie. It’s so good to know we’re feeding our precious babies with the best available nutrition we possibly can too. I’d recommend the Bestie Supplement for all cat owners if they want to feed their cats a quality balanced diet without a lot of fuss
