At the time of this post, Jinx offered the following kibble recipes

  • Grain-Free Organic Chicken & Carrot kibble
  • Salmon & Sweet Potato kibble

Our Daisy was clearly interested and excited to try her new Jinx food.  We added Jinx to her normal kibble for two weeks and looked for two things: does she like the food and how does it affect her stool.

Daisy will pretty much eat anything and she was happy to have Jinx added to her normal kibble every day.  Our girl can have a sensitive stomach and we were curious to see how Jinx would affect her digestion.

Throughout the two weeks, we didn’t see any major changes, she didn’t have more gas and her stool was firm and compact.

We did notice how excited Daisy was for breakfast and dinner.  She would nudge the Jinx bags as if to tell us that’s what she wanted to eat.  It was great seeing her so excited!

We didn’t notice a difference in her excitement for or tolerance of each of the kibbles that we tried.  All were welcome by our Daisy and her tummy tolerated everything she ate.

Based on these observations Jinx passed our tests and we would gladly feed Jinx to our dog Daisy.

When you transition your dog over to Jinx, follow their recommended transition portions and schedule by gradually adding Jinx to their normal kibble and adjusting proportions over a two-week period.

TIP: We recommend that you keep an eye on your pet and pay close attention to their stool to be sure that you are not transitioning too fast.

Jinx Dog Food Reviews:  How is Jinx Different?

You might be asking how Jinx is different from other premium dry dog food on the market?

According to Jinx, the dietary needs of the modern dog have changed.  Gone are the days that most dogs spend hunting or roaming for food.

Dogs nowadays have a less active lifestyle, they hang on the couch or go to doggy daycare and as such, what they eat should change as well.

Jinx feels that dogs need lower amounts of calorie-rich protein that is stored as fat in inactive dogs, resulting in weight gain.  Instead, dogs need a high-quality protein medley from diverse sources in moderate amounts that is easy to digest.  Jinx uses protein from a mix of sources including animal and plant-based superfoods and combines them with whole grains that are easily absorbed.

 

Jinx also includes their patented BC30 probiotic to support digestion, strengthen the gut wall and the immune system, and combat pathogens.

This probiotic has been designed and tested to survive the cooking process and into your dog’s stomach. They guarantee a minimum of 60 million CFUs (colony-forming units) per poundShop now >>

We tried the Beef Jerky Tenders, Chicken & Sweet Potato Tenders, and Chicken Jerky Bites and our Daisy loved them all!

The Beef Jerky Tenders and Chicken & Sweet Potato Tenders are both soft treats that a fairly large.  They are perfect for our large dog and can be easily broken into smaller pieces for smaller dogs.

The Chicken Jerky Bites were a little small for our Daisy’s big St. Berdoodle mouth but she still gobbled them up.  They would be perfect for small to medium size dogs or as training treats in moderation.

We love that all of the Jinx treats contain a limited number of ingredients, the first ingredient is lean protein, and they are low in calories. Shop now >>

Jinx Dog Food Reviews: Bottom Line

There are so many things to like about Jinx dog food.  We love that Jinx dog food is made with clean ingredients including lean, premium proteins, along with over 20+ natural plant superfoods, and a patented probiotic.

We also love that Jinx has no fillers, which means no soy, no corn, no wheat, and no artificial anything.

In addition, we like that Jinx is kibble and can be easily stored in the pantry.

Our dog Daisy enjoyed all of her Jinx dog food and it did not upset her digestive system over the two-week trial even when switching between recipes.  She also loved all of the treats, though the Chicken Jerky Bites were a bit small for her big mouth.

Compared to other premium dry dog food, Jinx is LESS EXPENSIVE than most. (View our comparison chart)
