Excellent health care products, smooth ordering and quick delivery

Ordering these trusted products is simple, and I receive my order promptly. Thank you. We determined my at Australian Shepherd/Lab mix dog was suffering from copper storage disease, and so I have been preparing all of his food at home and using the BalanceIt Canine supplement powder minus copper, and preparing his meals based on the online tool which provides the nutritional analysis. His ALT levels went down quickly and he is thriving at 14 1/2 half years old. I could not be happier.

Wow, thank you for taking the time to leave us an excellent review! It is great to hear that our Canine -Cu supplement has been smooth and quick to get and more importantly helpful in nutritionally managing Joker's disease when used with his special diet. It makes us very happy to know that he is thriving in his more mature years.

We're grateful for your continued support of and trust in our company, and look forward to continuing to serve you and Joker!

Marlies Hunter
My dog loves her homemade food!

My dog has copper associated Hepatopathy and the Vet specialist said that a homemade diet crafted for her condition with Balance It would have half the copper than prescription low copper commercial dog food. My dog loves the food and I felt that the advice given with the packaging saying you could keep it in the refrigerator or freezer as it would reduce the smell of it for my dog was helpful. I will continue feeding it to my dog and her coat is already better and her breath is better than when she was on the prescription low copper commercial food.

Thank you for sharing Rennie's experience with Balance It® Canine -Cu! We are so happy to hear that she loves the homemade food and that it has improved her coat and breath. We understand the importance and challenge of reducing dietary copper for some dogs and are glad that our product has proven useful. It is also nice to hear that our recently redesigned shipping insert was informative and helpful. We hope Rennie continues to do well.

Gail Ader
Great product.

So thankful this was available so we could home cook for our family member. She eats it readily.

Thank you for the great review, Gail. We're delighted to hear your dog is readily eating her home-cooked food with Balance It Canine -Cu. We hope she is doing well.

Lubby Smith
Healthy pup

My very sick pup went to a specialist because we couldn't find out what's wrong and he was getting worse. They prescribed a low copper diet, but it was super expensive for a 100-lb pup, it was rarely available in any brand, and it gave him diarrhea when we finally could get it.

I used to feed him a homemade diet, but switched to dry due to it's labor intensive and I was ill.

After almost a year on this Rx diet and supplements, his bloodwork came back excellent, and the doctor can't believe how healthy and beautiful his coat was.

I highly recommend. My 8-year old acts like a vivacious 3-year old.

Elizabeth, thank you for your positive review of Balance It® Canine -Cu. We are thrilled to hear that our product has helped Django with his health concerns and overall well-being. We understand the challenges of finding a suitable low copper diet, and we are glad that our product has been able to provide a solution for you.

We appreciate your recommendation and are always here to support you and your pup's health journey. Thank you for choosing Balance It® Canine -Cu.

William Finger
Great Product

Our 4 year old English Setter was diagnosed with Copper Storage Disease. Balance It Canine-CU has been great. We’ve followed the recipes and not only does he love the food, his health has improved dramatically.

William, we're so glad to hear that Balance It® Canine -Cu has played a part in Mac's improved health! We hope he continues to love his homemade meals.

Thank you for the great review!

Jock’s mom
Love the actual product

I do love this vitamin powder for my Border collie, Jock, as he has had liver disease for two years and this product is appropriate without copper. The one thing I wish is that the packaging/container hadn’t been changed. I truly hate it. It’s difficult to open and close and difficult to get product has it gets low. That being said, I will continue to buy for my boy!

Thank you for sharing your review and pastoral picture of Jock with us! He looks so majestic!

We are sorry you have had some difficulty with our new bag packaging. As widely reported, plastic recycling is unfortunately minimal at 5-6% in most municipalities and efforts to simply reduce plastic use have been suggested instead (see Thus, we decided to proactively develop a packaging solution that uses less plastic and invest in a new packaging line to support this change. By transitioning to bags instead of bottles, we have been able to reduce the plastic used by over 82%. Additionally, the new bags have a wider opening allowing the powder to usually be more easily accessed at the bottom.

Per federal law, we cannot recommend transferring the contents into a reusable and resealable container that you might prefer and like most cooks do for other bagged powdered cooking ingredients like flour or sugar. Legally, we must tell you that any container must have a child resistant closure (CRC; aka “be childproof”) given its high nutrient content. This special packaging requirement protects against accidental ingestion of all of the contents at once by a child.

We believe we have made the best available decision and choice given both regulatory and environmental concerns while as always we keep looking for even better options.

Thank you for sharing your valuable feedback. We're very glad to hear Balance It Canine -Cu has been a good fit for Jock and you love it.

Cindy Knebel

Thank you for sharing your happiness with Balance It Canine -Cu and our international shipping, Cindy! We appreciate your support and hope your dog is also very happy with their home-cooked food!
