Balanced Life (by Vets All Natural)
|Available from||My Pet Warehouse|
I say this all the time, but cats are obligate carnivores. They need a diet high in meat and without the starchy grainy carbs we find in most commercial cat foods. Balance Life is 80% meat, bone, and offal which is fantastic. The remaining 20% is comprised of a range of excellent fruits, veggies, oils, vitamins, and minerals. This makes the food far better than nearly every other cat food available, with the comparatives being ZiwiPeak and Feline Natural.
It’s important to note this food is an air-dried raw diet. Being air dried means nutrients remain pretty much intact in comparison to kibbles which are cooked at high temperatures. Fantastic! It’s easy to feed as well, you simply add fresh water before feeding which is a bonus in itself. Cat’s aren’t very good at seeking out water if it’s not readily available, and this can lead to health problems in later years particularly renal issues. Adding water to their daily diet ensures a fundamental water intake.
There are two formulas for cats, salmon and kangaroo. They use the same 80%/20% formula with the only difference being the meat source. You could alternate between the two.
The ratio of 80% to 20% is excellent. With many commercial brand kibbles you can be looking at 80% filler and perhaps 10% meat. That means Balanced Life is significantly healthier. Don’t be put off by bones and offal either, these are fundamental to a raw diet and provide essential nutrients for your cat to sustain a healthy life.
The remaining 20% is a mix of wonderful ingredients, with super-foods alfalfa, flaxseed, a mix of lentils, as well as peas, coconut, carrot, and more. Many of the minerals are chelated which means they’re much easier to absorb. This oozes quality and really shows it’s a quality product.
This is a fantastic cat food. 5 star.
If this has helped you please take the time to share it to other Australian pet owners. Thank you 🙂
