K9 Food Balancer - Helping people make healthy food for special needs dogs

About K9 Food Balancer

Make it yourself with confidence. K9 Food Balancer is the perfect solution for making nutritionally balanced, homemade dog food at a fraction of the cost and time that it would take to make it from scratch.

Paws Cafe has been making pet foods since 2007. We have a wealth of knowledge about the types of disorders many dogs encounter and we know how our whole food diets effect positive changes to their health. We get frequent requests to ship our fresh food diets across the US but as you might expect, this option can be expensive. We developed K9 Food Balancer as an economical alternative. The kits are a simple “add meat & water” homemade dog food solution that you can make in less than 30 minutes.  Each kit includes the instructions, diced dried vegetables, supplements, and excellent customer service should you need any help along the way. Multi-kit discounts are built into our pricing so you can save money by buying in volume.

Whether you feed your dog or cat one of our core, specialized, or DIY Food Balancer diets, you can feel good knowing that we use only the highest quality ingredients available.   Our foods are grain-free, and free of fillers, common allergens, preservatives, ground bones, and poor quality meat bi-products.  We use all-natural USDA and free range meats, non-gmo and organic veggies, and premium human grade supplements to create the healthiest pet foods possible. 

Our products are formulated to meet the nutrient requirements recommended by AAFCO for All Life Stages.

What makes our diets better

Truly Fresh - Made to Order

Our foods really are fresh-made every month to fill recurring orders. Never any stale, freezer burnt food here!

Quality Protein Based Diets:

Our diets contain healthy amounts of quality, human grade meat.  It's the same meat you feed the rest of your family.  Other pet foods contain meat meal, and restrict protein to the bare minimal amounts required to claim AAFCO compliance. Some dog foods contain unregulated bi-products that are unfit for human consumption.  They may even contain protein sources that no one would consider "meat" at all. 

Only Healthy Carbs:

All of our diets are grain-free. We use a variety of nutrient rich vegetables to provide essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber to your dogs diet.

Essential Fatty Acids:

Most commercial dog foods contain either cheap, unhealthy vegetable oils or heavily processed meat fat. In addition to the fats that are found naturally in our meats, our diets also contain organic hemp seed oil.   Hemp seed oil is known for its proportionally correct amounts of Omegas 3's and 6's, its natural vitamin E, and a full range of amino acids and essential minerals that our dogs need.  It does not contain CBD or THC.   

Essential Minerals:

Organic kelp and calcium citrate is added to our supplement mix to meet your dogs essential mineral needs. Calcium citrate is particularly beneficial when dealing with dogs that form kidney and bladder stones as the "citrate" reduces the amount of calcium in a dogs urine.  Most commercial dog foods use calcium carbonate which is poorly absorbed and may contribute to stone formation and bone spurs.

Vitamins:

All of our diets include natural Vitamin E and Vitamin D3. These two vitamins are commonly overlooked in premix and homemade diets. B vitamins are also added to ensure adequate amounts of these essential and beneficial nutrients. B vitamins vary by meat type so this addition ensures all bases are covered. We also include Taurine in all of our diets. While taurine is not considered an essential nutrient for dogs, there are certain types of meats that contain very little, if any.  By including this, we are simply ensuring that none of our diets are ever deficient in this heart healthy amino acid.

We pride ourselves on building lasting relationships with our clients.   You can meet a few of them on the Happy Customers page of our News & Updates section.
