If you recall, a few weeks ago I told you about how Maia would be trying out Pinnacle® Grain-Free Dog Food. A few days after that post, her food arrived and we’ve been trialing it since. As you can see from the picture above, she went so wild for it, she turned into a lion! Okay, so it’s a costume. Still, pretty cute, right? Maia’s never been much of a sporting dog, but she’s also been the best sport about getting dressed up! All kidding aside, Pinnacle Grain-Free dog food really is something to get wild about, and I’m going to tell you why.
Pinnacle Grain-Free Dog Food Duck & Sweet Potato Recipe Review
If you recall from the first post, I was most impressed with and looking forward to the antioxidants in the food to help boost Maia’s immune system. Maia is a 14, and while she doesn’t deal with the same level of aches and pains that her German Shepherd “sister” does at this age, she has a few issues of her own. She’s lumpy, bumpy and has quite a few “beauty marks.” If you look at her left eye in the below picture, you’ll see one. This one actually recently fell off, but it shows what I’m talking about.
Now, I’m not expecting Pinnacle to take care of those bumps and lumps. It can’t. Boosting your dog’s immune system doesn’t make warts and moles vanish. BUT, I read that those warts and bumps are often caused by an aging dog’s weakened immune system. So I thought it couldn’t hurt to give her a boost!
It’s one thing to say “we have antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, hurrah!” It’s another thing to see it ON the label. When I look at the Pinnacle Duck & Sweet Potato Recipe label, I’m happy to see proof of those vitamins and minerals. I’m also happy to see that they start pretty close to the top, not because they’re present in astronomical amounts but because Pinnacle doesn’t add fillers and junk to their food.
The first ingredient in the Duck & Sweet Potato recipe is, as it should be, duck. Garbanzo beans (chick peas) are at the top of the list, adding even more quality protein. Quinoa rounds out the proteins. This combination of protein sources also helps ensure Maia is getting a very well-rounded amino acid profile. Probably significantly better than my own!
Aside from the high-quality ingredients, fantastic proteins and the antioxidants to promote a healthy immune system, other key features of Pinnacle include:
- Fiber to encourage healthy digestion
- Ingredients that promote general joint health and overall muscle tone
- Made in the USA in their California plant
- Good for dogs with sensitive stomachs
How Do Dogs Like Pinnacle Grain-Free Dog Food?
Keep in mind that Maia is 14 and slowing down in all things, including her eating. She doesn’t eat every last bite in one sitting, but she does actually come in for dinner the first time we call her. That’s a big deal for a pampered senior citizen who usually waits to see if anyone will just deliver dinner on a silver platter to the living room, where she sits on her throne (which is actually a cat bed that she can only get her butt onto!). We set a precedent once when she had a hurt paw and she came to expect food delivery always after that.
Maia does this weird thing in her advanced age where she picks out pieces of kibble to eat first. She picks up a mouthful and spits in on the floor, then picks out what she wants. She does it with all foods. With Pinnacle, I notice that she’s going back when she’s done to clean up her mess. Another sign that she likes it.
