Our ingredients

you eat healthy, does your pet?

We’ve travelled the length and breadth of Australia to source the very best natural ingredients for Balanced Life. From Tasmanian salmon to Queensland coconuts and South Australian cranberries each ingredient has been carefully picked to give healthy dogs and cats everything they need to thrive. There’s no fillers, no grains or gluten and no artificial flavourings or preservatives – just natural, mouth watering, air dried raw goodness.

a meaty, grain-free mouthful

Dogs and cats thrive on a high meat diet and in the wild that includes everything from nose to tail. While muscle meat provides protein for energy and amino acids, organs are a rich source of vitamins, bone provides calcium and colostrum and oils and fats provide Essential Fatty Acids.

We’re proud that 80% of the ingredients in Balanced Life food are made up of muscle meat, organ, bone, fats and oils. What’s more all our recipes – Chicken, Lamb, Kangaroo and Salmon – use single species only and are grain and gluten free, which helps reduce the chance of allergic reactions that mixed meat foods can trigger.

plenty of superfoods and no nasty fillers

Four key superfoods – alfalfa, coconut, kelp and cranberries – help give Balanced Life the nutrition other pet foods can’t provide. And it doesn’t stop there – flax seed, green peas, carrot, green and red lentils, chicory, parsley, beetroot, barley grass, fish oil and more all help ensure Balanced Life is packed full of goodies.

The only thing that’s missing is the cheap fillers and artificial flavourings you’ll commonly find in other pet foods.

single source proteins for healthy skin and stomachs

Many pets today suffer from irritated skin and stomachs, which are often caused by allergy issues arising from cooked low grade meat and fillers in traditional pet food. By continuing to feed pets these unnatural meals, owners risk causing increased discomfort to their pets, which can lead to serious issues and costly treatments.

Balanced Life is formulated with a single protein in each variety, ensuring your pet receives the best protein for their body. Inn particular, kangaroo meat is often regarded as a low allergenic protein source that can solve long-term allergy problems that many pets have.

why a moist diet is best

Canines and felines in the wild receive much of their water requirements by eating the raw meat of their prey which is moist and tender. This means their bodies are accustomed to moist food and require some moisture during feeding to optimise their digestion. Domesticated dogs and cats have extremely similar DNA, meaning that typical, dry pet pet food does not allow for proper digestion.

Just add water to Balanced Life’s food mix, to create a moist meal full of succulent meat, vegetables and fruits, which help your pet maintain a gut acidity level and promotes probiotic growth in the bowels. These probiotics allow for healthy digestion, easier absorption of nutrients and boost the immune system.

Best of all? Your pet will love the incredible mix of raw ingredients and moisture, having even the fussiest pets eagerly awaiting their next meal.

omega 3 & 6 are critical for health

Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids are essential for good health and the correct balance of both is critical to ensure the immune system can defend against basic allergens, particularly skin irritations. These essential fatty acids occur naturally in meat, fruit and vegetables; however they are easily destroyed by cooking, so feeding gently air dried Balanced Life ensures the correct level is maintained and cell function is optimised.
