The ALLROUNDER Balancing Pre-mix

95 reviews

The raw feeding pre-mix you add to meat, to make nutrient-packed fresh meals that go waaay beyond complete and balanced.

    If you want an alternative to ultra-processed kibble, are wary of pre-made foods or your dog doesn't like them, then making it yourself may be the answer. But it's difficult and time consuming making sure your dog is getting all the nutrients they need when you make meals from scratch yourself.

    The bestie Allrounder 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, our Allrounder balancing pre-mix goes waaay beyond complete and balanced. It's packed with a 19 all-natural, top-shelf, food-grade ingredients, to deliver extra nutrients for healthy joints, guts and immune system. It's why our pre-mix is often more expensive than others. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for...

      More of the nutrients that promote wellness

      18 times the vitamin C* - from natural sources like native Kakadu Plum, not synthetics. Dogs can synthesis vitamin C themselves BUT their ability to do this diminishes as they age or if they're stressed.

      Almost 12 times the vitamin A*,important for vision, bone, teeth, skin

      8 times the vitamin E*,to help defend against oxidative damage.

      More of the really beneficial fatty acids, EPA and DHA from green lipped mussel and cod liver oil, to help reduce inflammation.

      17000 umol/kg of antioxidants- other brands don't even measure them!

      Built in pre and probioticsfor good gut health.

      * Compared to a leading European BARF supplement

      Health benefits for dogs and cats

      After a while on the bestie Allrounder, people report their dogs 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!

      The extra nutrients in the Allrounder also help with what researchers call inflammaging.Inflammaging is a chronic stimulation of the immune system and reduced ability to respond to infections or stresses.Ageing dogs get it, just like people.

      But, while ageing is unavoidable, nutritional intervention can delay and reduce the inflammaging effect.

        Worth the wait. As a human, this smells funky but my dog loves this mixed into his fresh meat and can’t get enough of it. Easy to follow instructions on the back of the package and my dog has kept excess weight off.

        That's really great to hear...Is Bruce losing any weight do you think, or too early? You could try slowly reducing food amounts a little overall but not too drastically.

        That's disappointing...it's unusual that dogs don't like it (I keep getting stories of people whose dogs have ripped open the bestie when it's been left lying around), however every dog is different. Perhaps try, slightly increasing the the right amount over a slow transition; doing a light fry up one day; swapping protein source, mixing in a bit of yoghurt! Please let me know if that improves things.

        • What's the name of your dog or cat? Boyd, Romi, Suki
        • Can you share anything more about the reason you switched to bestie...was there something going on health-wise? I was learning more and more about the benefits of a raw diet and was transitioning them over. However, even though I was including organ meats, bones and vegetables, I was still worried that they may be missing out on important things. I opened a Bestie Kitchen ad on Facebook and there was the solution! The added bonus of feeding them Bestie is they now love, love, love their dinner and lick their bowls clean!

        SO GOOD!

        I have three dogs ranging in age from 1 year to 12 years and they love Bestie in their dinner. So not only is Bestie giving them everything they need nutrition wise, they are now cleaning their plates with gusto.

        • What's the name of your dog or cat? Toby
        • Can you share anything more about the reason you switched to bestie...was there something going on health-wise? Covered above

        It couldn't be easier

        I wanted my dog Toby to have the best nutrition I could manage & I was aware that raw meat doesn’t provide all of the nutrients in the correct proportions for optimal health. I feed Toby a variety of raw meats for evening meals & good quality commercial foods for breakfast. Toby has always loved his food BUT he truly loves the taste of Allrounder Balancer itself. A few wks back an unopened postal delivery of Balancer was left (not by me because I know better!) within his reach. Well… enter Toby & since no one was around he ripped into the packaging & ate Balancer to his heart’s content. Amanda from Bestie is very accessible. She offered advice on perhaps some bland meals for a day or two & she confirmed that there was nothing in Balancer that would be harmful to Toby. The worst that happened was that the next day he brought up some of the plastic bag he’d swallowed & his behaviour was a little subdued from the richness (as Amanda explained) & quantity of product he’d consumed. Despite this, Toby recovered easily. His appetite wasn’t affected & he still tucked into his meals (minus Balancer for a couple of days). Since adding Balancer to Toby’s raw evening meals his coat has increased in softness & lustre & I feel confident that I am doing my best for his health nutritionally. The vet has even complimented his coat. I mix the powder in with a little water & then mix this through his raw food. It couldn’t be easier.

        Thanks so much for this review...and I remember very well the day you emailed me about Toby tucking into the pack of bestie. I thought bestie meals were palatable, but to be honest I thought that was probably because of the meat in the meal! So good to know he loves it on its own. But perhaps not so much at one time...On a more serious note, really glad to hear that he is doing well and is healthy. Thanks for so generously sharing your thoughts; we love to hear about Toby!

        • Can you share anything more about the reason you switched to bestie...was there something going on health-wise? Zoe is heading up to 12. She has had major joint and ligament surgery and has arthritis. She needs to lose weight. She gets good Australian grain free kibble in the morning and meat & supplement at night. In a short time she has lost .3 of a kilo. From 7.4 to 7.1. She is a Toy Poodle.

        Zoe eats the supplement mixed in water to a paste, along with her raw mince. I don’t mix them together, so she has the different flavour of the meats!
