William Montferret
I'm happy that Balance IT offers a supplement for dogs with renal issues.

My dog has renal issues and Balance IT offers vet approved recipes for him that meet the requirements for his condition. The only issue I have is with the measuring of the supplement. A blue scoop is provided, but it's meant for those who need small, as well as larger amounts of the supplement. It would be helpful if the recipe offered measurements; teaspoons, tablespoons, that sort of thing. I make multiple meals for my dog and freeze them for future use. If I could use standard measures for the supplement, it would make the task easier.

Thank you William for your review and sharing your experience with the supplement. Your suggestion has been shared with our team. If helpful, the larger, included blue scoop measures 5 mL, and the included, smaller clear/white scoop measures 0.5 mL. Providing scoops that are 1/10th or ten times the size of the other makes preparing larger batches for odd numbers of days slightly easier to measure than using other fractions like 1/8 or 1/3 in our experience (it is similar to why most currencies are in multiples of ten). To hopefully further help with measurement, the mass or gram amount is also provided on recipes which can be measured most accurately with a kitchen gram or jewelers scale as noted on recipes. Possibly helpful conversions can also be found in this FAQ: I bought the pouch product but my recipe(s) call(s) for (a) scoop(s). Do these pouches come with any scoops?

Makes it easy to cook for your pets

I've been using Balance IT since 2020, when my pooch who is allergic to many types of food also got early kidney disease. This made finding a kibble she could eat impossible. Recently, they have changed their recipe calculator, and I've found that my dog does better on the old recipes, so I don't use the new calculator for her. I do use the new calculator for my other healthy dog, so it's fine. However, I have to say, that the new calculator pushed the more expensive vitamins on me for the other dog, and it seemed like the recipe was too much phosphorus for her - she became lethargic and unhappy. I couldn't change it back to the old vitamins, and I couldn't recreate the old recipes so I'm just going with the recipes from 2020 & 2021. I gave four stars because the calculators are so different, that I suspect something amiss. Overall, between the two recipes from two different calculators, my dogs are doing well and really enjoy the home cooked food.

Thank you for your review and sharing your experience with us, Sherri! We are glad to hear that your sick dog has continued to do well and that the new Recipe Builder is working well for your healthy dog.

It is hard to comment on why your old recipes are no longer possible as there are potentially millions of variables/causes. However, it is unlikely to be due to the new, more advanced formulation software launched in April 2023, and instead more likely due to concurrent or recent updates in nutrient requirements and possibly nutrient data or it’s increased capabilities/offerings. A key advantage, of the dynamic and free online Recipe Builder, is that it can be kept up-to-date as new knowledge becomes available. This can on occasion lead to changes in recipes that work and why we suggest reformulation over time.

We have not increased the acceptable range in dietary phosphorus, so any changes in response are less likely related to that. Instead, the system is now better able to make higher dietary protein, while still low or restricted dietary phosphorus (+/- one pot), recipes, which might explain what you observed as some dogs can be very sensitive to dietary protein (it is always suggested to check with your veterinarian if symptoms are recurrent/persistent/worsening in case it is not diet-related). It also could be a cause for an alternative suggestion of using Balance It Canine K Plus as that has higher vitamin concentration (reason for its higher cost) to enable heating and no added phosphorus. On Step 2 of the Recipe Builder, you can enter “Plus” as a key word or ingredient to leave out or exclude to see if that helps get recipes with your preferred supplement.

Much to all of the above is speculation and may not be applicable, so if you’d like further specific help, we suggest reaching out to us and sharing your old recipes. We are happy to look and see what might have changed and/or what might be the root cause. We are here to help.

Joseph Schwind
canine supplement

My dog's diet/supplement and drug regimen were changed at the same time. The results have been, apparently, positive. I don't have any way to determine which of the changes produced which result. I can say that the supplement did not have a negative effect.
My dog initially refused to eat food with the supplement for several days; I put the supplement in capsules and she takes those with a bit of pill pocket material wrapped around the capsules.

Thank you for your review, Joseph. We're happy to hear that your dog's recent medical therapy and diet change, including the addition of our Canine K supplement, has been positive. While we do not advise feeding the supplement in capsules as it can be very time-consuming, you can find other helpful tips for finicky eaters in our FAQs: 'My dog/cat will not eat their food with the Balance It® supplement added or mixed in. What should or can I do/try?' We hope your dog continues to do well!

Linda Caponigro
Hard to use

I bought packets and it is difficult to measure accurately. My advice would be to send a scoop with the packets so it can be measured precisely. Dog seems to like the food I make though.

Thank you for sharing your feedback and suggestion, Linda. We are so glad to hear that your dog likes their food. With regard to the pouches, while convenient for smaller dogs and cats, occasional use, and for trial purposes, they do not come with scoops given their smaller 20 gram size and dimensions. We have separately responded to your concurrent email with some hopefully helpful alternatives for measurement that are also found in this FAQ: I bought the pouch product but my recipe(s) call(s) for (a) scoop(s). Do these pouches come with any scoops? Please look for that email and reply to it if you need further help.
