Deli has been trialling Veteran Balance +. We’ve just finished our month and wanted to share our story.

Having Cushing's disease (PPID), Deli needed a low sugar and starch feed.  She has to have soaked feeds and Veteran Balance + was just perfect for her, quick-soaking in warm water and very palatable. Deli licked the bowl clean every feed!
