Disappointed

My cat would not eat the recipe. Even when I started with transitional amounts of Balance It, she refused to eat it.

Thank you for sharing your cat's experience, Milka. We're sorry to hear she did not eat her homemade food. Cats can be quite particular about what they will eat. We do provide some general suggestions in our FAQ titled, 'My cat won’t eat their food without or with the supplement slowly added and mixed in. What should I do?' at balance.it/faqs.

We see that this FAQ was shared with you via email along with our 45-day return policy. Your order was returned and refunded yesterday, April 03, 2024. Please allow 24-48 hours for the refund transaction to settle to see the credit to your account.

We wish you success in finding a diet that your cat enjoys and does well on.

Nope -

On further review, I wondered why the recipes were all high carb as much as 26% for obligate carnivores. One recipe calls for white rice, there is zero nutritional benefit for humans much less a cat. I called to request refund of an unopened package and was told that I should have looked at the carnivore diet supplement. Well, duh, they should all be carnivore meal plans. As someone trained in human nutrition, this program made no sense. I've opted to stick to the other holistic veterinarians who also have Vet Dietary certificates and feed my babies the food they really need with added supplemental mix like EZ Complete and Know Better by Food Fur Life and there are at least a dozen more. BTW, I have yet to receive my refund!

Thank you for your review, Margaret. We are sorry to hear about your disappointment with our wide range of free and customizable online cat food recipes at balance.it/recipes.

Our healthy cat recipes are formulated to meet AAFCO nutrient profiles, which do not limit carbohydrates and are the legal standard in the U.S. Unfortunately, there is no known 'ideal' distribution of calories, but many can be fed, tolerated, and enjoyed. For rough reference, many over-the-counter (aka OTC) healthy adult dry cat foods have a range of protein at 30-40% of calories, fat at 25-35% of calories, and carbohydrate at 25-45% of calories. A lower concentration of carbohydrate, like you have suggested/cited in your review and separately in your previous communications with our Customer Care team, is possible and can be appropriate for cats which are obligate carnivores. Consequently, you often see no to very low carbohydrate recipes as one of the default options when you allow recipes to be made by the recipe builder on our site. You can also choose to select only animal-based ingredients on Step 2 of the process to avoid any carbohydrates or ingredients that you do not wish to prepare/feed.

AAFCO does not exclude carbohydrates, and we provide recipes that include carbohydrates, as cats do utilize digested dietary carbohydrates in the form of glucose as a main energy source. Glucose, as you likely know as someone trained in human nutrition, is oxidized within mammalian (and other species) cells to synthesize adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is a molecule that stores and releases energy as required by the cell.

When on a dietary carbohydrate free diet, cats utilize gluconeogenesis to produce glucose from protein and fat to then synthesize ATP. To highlight the importance of glucose, if cats are unable to utilize glucose, they develop an ultimately fatal condition called ketoacidosis.

Some cats also need to be fed some carbohydrates to provide prebiotics (dietary fiber) as well as to reduce dietary protein and/or fat to nutritionally manage conditions and diseases, while still meeting energy needs. Thus, our system's flexibility allows a very broad range of needs to be met.

For our return policy, please refer to our email to you on March 14, 2024. We just received your returned package at our facility and plan to process it tomorrow given the late hour tonight. You will receive an automatic email notification when a refund has been issued.

Please feel free to contact our Customer Care Team at info@balanceit.com if you have any further questions. We are glad to hear that you found alternative options (we are not familiar with them) that you feel more comfortable with and that work well for your cats' specific needs. If your veterinarian(s) has/have any questions, we are also happy to address them if they would like to reach out to us directly.

Love Balance IT

I have been purchasing Balance IT for the last 12 years. I use the Feline vitamins. I always have had pleasant quick response to emails I have sent. Shipping is fast from California to Pennsylvania!

Tina, thank you for your review and longtime support of Balance It! We're so happy to hear that you have had pleasant interactions with our team and fast shipping across the country throughout the last dozen years.

We hope we have the opportunity to assist you and your cat for many more years to come.

Balance It Feline is an excellent supplement for our cat’s diet. Thank you!

You are very welcome and thank you Ralane for the great review of not just Balance It Feline but also Balance It Canine elsewhere.

Balance it Feline

I am happy that I can get this product because Molly eats organic chicken so its necessary. My only struggle is that it never comes with more than a 6 or so month expiration. When you have a 10 pound cat, you can't begin to use it all. I wish I could purchase less.

Thank you for your review, Kathleen! We hope Molly is enjoying her organic chicken meals with Balance It Feline.

If you are unable to use the full 500 gram bag before it expires, you may wish to consider purchasing some of our smaller 20 gram pouches instead to help avoid waste.

Here is also a little more on shelf-life if of interest. Our expiration dates are never longer than 11 months, and we do our best to assure at least 3 months of shelf-life on all shipments. Supplements are perishable as vitamins naturally degrade with time. The rate vitamins degrade is increased when in the presence of trace minerals. We account for this inherent degradation with our formulations to ensure that there are extra vitamins present when first made. These overages have to be limited to avoid excess at the beginning of the supplement’s shelf-life. Since we take the extra step of assaying all guaranteed essential nutrients in a laboratory, the longest shelf-life we ever might have is 11 months (since it can take a month for testing, release, and packaging).

So far, so good

I am hesitant to go too positive with comments, not because the product isn't great but because I've tried so many things that work for a short time and then fail. Again, not the product, it's the poor cat. I also bought the fiber supplement but don't really know how much to add, like amount to be used with the recipe. TY!

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, Betty! We hope your cat continues to do well with our supplement. The amount of supplement and Firming Fiber needed is recommended based on the exact recipe you create on our website or that is provided to you by your veterinarian. Our Balance It Customer Care Team will be reaching out to you to provide support on your recipe(s).

My cat doesn't need allergy shots

My cat is allergic to many ingredients found in commercial cat food. However, he is not allergic to poultry or cornmeal. There is one brand that I can buy at a specialty per store or online, but the single serve cans are $2 each, and are mainly gravy, and my cat was still hungry after eating. So I decided to make my own cat food. My car's veterinarian recommended that I use Balance It as a supplement to include the vitamins, minerals and taurine that he needs. BalanceIt, plus using dust-free litters improved his skin and bowl movements so much that the veterinarian said that "whatever you are doing, keep on doing it". She had told me, after the allergy testing had been done, that she had never seen a cat with so many allergies, and that he would need shots in addition to food without any of his allergens, simply because it would be impossible to control the dust in the house that much. After seeing him again after using the BalanceIt, she said that he didn't need the shots. Thank you for providing what my cat needs.

Thank you for sharing your experience, Elizabeth. It has warmed our hearts. We understand how difficult it can be to find a diet that works for a companion with many sensitivities. We're happy to have been a part of your cat's journey to better health!

Red Scoop

I don't like the packaging because it's too hard to open. Each time I have to open it I struggle and having carpal tunnel syndrome, its constantly damaging my wrist. Other than that my cat seems to like it in her food and hopefully it helps her breast cancer. That's what counts.

Laura, thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We are sorry to hear that the bags are hard for you to open. By federal law, both of our 500 and 600 gram bags must have a child resistant closure (CRC; aka “be childproof”) given their high nutrient content. This special packaging requirement protects against accidental ingestion of all of the contents at once. The size may not work well/best for you, but we also do have smaller 20 gram pouches available that can be torn open as they hold less nutrient and do not need a resealable CRC as a consequence. We hope Princess Lily does well.

Yuko Ohnaka
I've been using this product for more than ten years

This is a great product. I just hope you sell plastic spoons separately in the future. I don't want to throw them out every time I purchase a new bag.

Yuko, it's amazing to hear that Balance It® Feline has worked well for you and your feline companion for over a decade! We truly appreciate your many years of support.

We've taken note of your suggestion to separately sell the measuring scoops that are always included within each 500 gram bag of Feline. We will take your suggestion into consideration as we continuously strive for ways to improve.
