Per Above Recipe: Calories; % protein calories (0 Calories); % fat calories (0 Calories); % carbohydrate calories (0 Calories); 0.0% moisture. Notes: These percentages do not correspond to the percentages listed on commercially made food.
Preparation Instructions:
Prepare the above ingredients in the amounts indicated above and mix together before feeding. If the recipe uses a Balance IT Original Blends® product, be sure to cook the Blends with water and/or the selected protein source as the degradation of vitamins from cooking the Blends has been accounted for in the recipe. If the recipe uses a Balance IT® all-in-one supplement (i.e., Canine, Canine K, Feline, or Feline K), Balance IT DHA Omega-3®, and/or a combination of human supplements, these should be added after cooking the rest of the recipe.
The recipe must be followed exactly. Any alteration in amount or substitution of ingredients may cause adverse health consequences.
Finicky/Picky Eaters:
A slow transition to the new diet can improve acceptance and tolerance especially for any added supplement(s). This is especially true in pets that are ill or pets that have been fed a diet without supplementation for awhile. If you are new to home cooking, it is best to start feeding the recipe once all ingredients including supplements are available, so that the addition of supplement(s) doesn't make a pet wonder why a recently introduced and enjoyed recipe now suddenly smells and tastes different. Such a change may normally be readily accepted, but in some pets any change can affect their willingness to eat a food especially when they are ill.
Supplements for certain health conditions that need to be high in essential amino acids and vitamins, can have an inherently strong natural odor that is not masked when in powdered form. In the occasional case where supplement palatability is a concern, gradually working to the full dose over 5-10 days may be helpful. Since some sources of needed essential nutrients intentionally may not have any flavoring or palatant added (especially if added antigens are a worry), you may need to work with your veterinarian to identify whether mixing the needed supplement(s) with something other than the ingredients listed above is needed and appropriate. The addition of called for supplement(s) is NOT optional as this provides needed essential nutrients and prevents nutrient deficiencies from developing.
Ingredients should not be substituted. Ingredients that may seem similar can vary greatly in the amounts and types of nutrients they provide. This is especially true of any vegetable oils used as they have very specific fatty acid profiles and changing from, say, corn oil to olive oil can make the diet potentially deficient in linoleic acid, while using walnut oil instead of corn oil would be okay. Please make additional recipes using the desired ingredient(s) or purchase and request a custom recipe setting if none exists with the desired ingredient(s).
Measuring Ingredients:
The fastest and most accurate way to measure the major ingredients in the recipe is to use a gram scale. These scales can be inexpensively purchased at office supply stores as well as at stores that sell kitchen supplies.

If a gram scale is not available, the common measure can be used. Some helpful common measure conversions: 1/16 cup = 1 tbsp, 1 tbsp = 3 tsp, 1 oz = 28.35 grams.
Multiple Pets:
Recipes are created for specific pets so it is usually best to have recipes created for each individual pet in a household. If you have other pets, please make a specific recipe(s) for them.
Prepared food can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 2 weeks. Do not reheat any food that already contains vitamin containing supplement(s) as heating vitamins can degrade them.
Purchasing Supplements:
Please use only the supplement type(s) that are called for in the above recipe. Substitutions should not be made, and could potentially lead to harmful effects or an improperly balanced recipe. Needed Balance IT® products can be purchased from or from veterinary clinics.

Needed human supplements can be purchased at most drugstores, some supermarkets, and online.
Please monitor your pet's weight and make sure they achieve/maintain a healthy weight. If they unintentionally begin to gain or lose weight, please contact their veterinarian.

Your pet should have regular visits with a veterinarian to check that their homemade diet is meeting their needs.
