Jinx

Jinx dog food delivers holistic nutrition with clean, functional ingredients like premium animal proteins, natural plant superfoods, and a patented probiotic for your dog directly to your door.  This kibble does not contain corn, soy, gluten, or anything artificial.  And because Jinx is made for the modern dog that lounges on the couch, versus the working dog of the past, their food contains a varied source of proteins, carbohydrates, and healthy fats that are easy to digest.

What We Like

  • No Fillers or Artificial Anything
  • Premium Protein, Superfoods, & Probiotics in every recipe
  • Kibble can be stored in the pantry

What We Don’t Like

  • Would love larger treats and larger treat bag sizes (we have a big dog!)

Jinx Reviews

For our Jinx reviews, we received a bag of Salmon, Brown Rice, and Sweet Potato kibble as well as a bag of Chicken & Mango treats.  We were excited to try Jinx as we are always on the lookout for healthy kibble for our 9-year-old dog Daisy.

Jinx is dog food is made with clean ingredients including lean, premium proteins, like Organic Chicken and Salmon, along with over 20+ natural plant superfoods, gentle sources of dietary fiber, and a patented probiotic.  We love that Jinx has no fillers, which means no soy, no corn, no wheat, and no artificial anything.  And best of all, all Jinx formulas are developed and approved by a council of dog nutritionists, veterinarians, and manufacturing experts to provide your dog with a well-balanced diet sourced from premium ingredients.

Jinx Reviews: Dry / Kibble

jinx-dog-food-daisy

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.  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.  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 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.

Specifically, 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 pound.

When compared to fresh and raw dog food, Jinx is a lot less expensive (it’s also easier to store), but there are pros and cons to both fresh dog food as well as kibble.  We think you should decide what’s best for your dog.    When we compared Jinx to other premium kibble their pricing is in line with their competitors.  You can read all of our Pet Meal reviews for more details.

Jinx Reviews:  Dog Treats

jinx-dog-treats

Jinx dog treats come in 3 functional flavors: Chicken & Mango Jerky for a chewy boost of fiber, Pumpkin & Apple Biscuits for a crunchy digestive aid, and Chicken & Sweet Potato Jerky for chewy eye-health support.

Our Daisy loved the chewy Chicken & Mango jerky!  They were a little small for her big St. Berdoodle mouth but 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 and are low in calories.

Jinx Reviews: Bottom Line

jinx-box

There are so many things to like about Jinx.  Their dog food is made with clean ingredients including lean, premium proteins, along with over 20+ natural plant superfoods, and a patented probiotic.  We love that Jinx has no fillers, which means no soy, no corn, no wheat, and no artificial anything.  We also like that Jinx is kibble and can be stored in the pantry.

Our dog Daisy enjoyed her Salmon Jinx and it did not upset her digestive system over the two-week trial.  She also loved the Chicken & Mango Jinx treats, though they were a bit small for her big mouth.

If you are looking for a premium kibble with clean ingredients Jinx may be right for you and your dog.  And compared to other premium kibble brands Jinx pricing is in line with what we have seen elsewhere.
