Ingredient Review

Our review of Pinnacle Brothibbles Duck begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Duck. Duck is meat from any member of the Anatidae waterfowl. In pet food, duck can serve as a primary protein source as well as a source of animal fat, minerals, and amino acids. It is sometimes used as a novel protein, and is often an ingredient in diets formulated specifically for pets with allergies.

The second ingredient is Turkey Meal. The turkey meal in pet food is typically a byproduct of turkey meat production. Turkey meal is high in protein, and is easy for pets to digest. It is a good source of B vitamins and amino acids to support your pet’s overall well-being.

The third ingredient is Chicken Meal Source Of Glucosamine. When you see “chicken meal source of glucosamine” in pet products, it means that the dried, ground chicken contains cartilage and soluble proteins that contribute joint-supporting glucosamine to your companion’s meals.

The fourth ingredient is Chondroitin. Chondroitin is a natural anti-inflammatory agent that is often combined with glucosamine. The chondroitin in pet food, treats, and supplements is often intended to support healthy joint function, particularly in aging companion animals.

The fifth ingredient is Peas. Pea is a general term to describe whole, split, or milled peas, which are a grain-free, gluten-free source of protein, fiber, and carbohydrates. In pet food, pea products serve as an energy source as well as a supplementary source of vitamins and minerals.

When we analyzed the ingredients in Pinnacle Brothibbles Duck, we found that most of the protein is derived from meat based sources.

Nutritional Analysis

Your adult dog needs a balance of macro and micronutrients to thrive. A food formulated for adult maintenance or all life stages is made to meet these needs. While there can be a lot of variation in actual calorie density, adult dog foods are generally intended to provide for basic calorie needs of the average active dog. In addition to satisfying their energy needs, these foods provide the protein, fat, carbohydrates, fiber, and other nutrients your adult dog needs to survive. Again, not all adult foods are the same, so you may have to search around for the right fit for your dog.
