The HYPOALLERGENIC Balancing Topper for Dogs

The easy way to make nutrient-packed complete and balanced meals for dogs with gut or skin sensitivities, at home. Just add meat.

    How much should I feed my dog?

    Size: 500g
    Australian made & owned
    Nutritionist formulated
    VET recommended

    Ideal for gut & skin

    Rashes, itchy skin and sensitive tummiesare becoming more common. Here's how the Hypoallergenic can help:

    • Algimun, biologically active marine algal extracts that strengthen innate and adaptive immune responses and enhance the barrier function of the intestinal mucosa.
    • Spirulina, a blue-green algae that enhances immune and gut health
    • Sunflower and hempseedsfor omega 6 & 3 fatty acids to promote coat and skin health
    • Olive fruit extract, rich in polyphenolic compounds to act as a prebiotic (along with carrot fibre), and an antibacterial
    • Cod liver oil and algae for DHA & EPA fatty acids to reduce inflammation and support joint and brain health
    • Sunflower lecithin for choline from to support neurological health and help absorption of essential fatty acids
    • Nutritional yeast for B-complex vitaminsto help reduce inflammation
    • Pumpkin, carrot, shiitake and kelp for key micronutrients

    Nutritional yeast, ALGAECAL algae-based calcium, sunflower meal, NINJIN carrot fibre, pumpkin powder, carrot powder, cod liver oil, ALGIMUN algae-extract, olive fruit extract, shiitake mushroom powder, spirulina, DHA GOLD algae extract fatty acid, hemp protein powder, iodised salt, mixed vegetable powder (cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower), seaweed meal, nettle.

    Metabolisable energy 3364kcal/kg, protein 15%, fat 16%, fibre 18%, ash 5%.

    Just add water, meat, mix and serve. When you're in the swing, you'll think it's as convenient as biscuits from a bag. (But better for health.)

    You can also:

    • Make in bulk, and freeze.
    • Lightly cook with meat, with no impact on nutrition.

    Most dogs love Bestie Hypoallergenic. But if you're having trouble, try these tips:

    • Transition more slowly
    • Lightly fry to bring out the flavours
    • Add a little nutritional yeast - available from the supermarket
    • Mix in a little yoghurt

    No you don't. When Bestie is added to muscle meat in the right quantities, it makes a complete and balanced meal. That said:

    • Note that if you want to feed poultry meat, you will need to add offal. The table below gives the ideal mix of offal to poultry meat.
    • If you're going to feed bones, don't add the bestie in that meal. We've already got calcium and phosphorous, covered.
    • If you want to add extra veg, you can, but again, that's optional and note required.

    How much should I feed my dog?

    For adult dogs, the Bestie Hypoallergenic is always 10% of the meal. The overall quantity depends on the protein source. That's because different meat proteins provide a different amount of metabolisable energy. We take that into account, when we provide a feed guide.

    The feed calculator below is based on feeding your dog, twice a day. It shows a per meal quantity, in grams.

    Note that if you want to feed poultry meat, you can. However, it needs to be 70% offal (eg hearts) and 30% poultry meat, to be balanced.

    The Hypoallergenic is not suitable for puppies.

    What was the reason you switched to bestie...was there something going on health-wise?:: Skin and dietary allergies
    More energy on hypo-allergenic

    I have a dog with environmental and dietary allergies and is on a limited kangaroo and veg diet. It's only been a month since I started adding the hypo-allergenic balancer to my dogs food but he seems alot more spritely and energetic since starting it. It's really nice having a product that balances a strict protein diet. I was worried that he was missing out on essential minerals and vitamins but now I feel more confident I am meeting his nutritional requirements. Will absolutely buy again.

    Great to hear this is making a difference and gives you some peace of mind...thanks for letting us know.

    Can’t rate yet

    I tried few things in the same time,including the balancer,and she is still scratching,but the skin looks a bit better.
    Thank you.

    Thanks for your persistence...itchy skin is often a 'multi-factorial' problem...and may take a little time and multiple approaches.
