Balance is presented as a solution in four different situations:

1: Looking for a low protein food? Balance is only 20 percent protein. You can further increase the level of protein in the servings by mixing Balance together with any of the Essential living foods. If you serve a mixture of 75% Balance together with 25% of a Essential living meals the protein level is boosted to 22.5 %.

2: Is your dog suffering from loose stools? The combination of turkey meat, rice and oats is carefully composed to Balance the digestive system. Essential Balance can be served on its own or mixed with the other Essential meals.

3: Would you like to serve a more economically attractive Essentials meal? This option is for those who need a food solution at a lower price, but who are attracted by Essential's values. Fortunately, there is now an economic solution for heavy volume users who cannot go the full Essentials way. In this case it makes particular sense to use Essentials other meals for specific lifestyle situations. These could, for example, be Nautical for allergy and skin/ coat problems, Contour for sterilised or neutered dogs and Large Breed for large puppies etc.

4: Does your dog suffer from an allergy problem caused by certain ingredients? Balance is a single source protein meal. This makes Balance the obvious choice for those who wish to serve Essentials to avoid allergies caused by eggs, chicken, lam, beef or fish proteins. You can also increase protein intake by supplementing your dogâ€â„¢s diet with fresh, non-allergic protein sources.
