Trout & Sweet Potato:
My Akita Honshu asked me to write to you about his success on Pinnacle Trout and Sweet Potato.  When my boyfriend and I adopted our sweet 4-year-old Akita from the animal control where we live he was about 7-10 pounds under weight, his eyes were sunken in, all his ribs were sticking out, and his skin and coat looked horrible.  Immediately, we put Honshu on Pinnacle and the results were amazing.  A full year later, he is 80 glorious pounds of muscle and people are always asking me how I keep his coat so beautiful and his breath smelling so fresh.

Thank you for giving our little pup dog a new lease on a healthy life!

 

Duck & Potato:
THANK YOU!!!! I have had my Bocker (Beagle-Cocker) on Pinnacle Duck and Potato for one week and all of his issues have faded away!! He used to itch and moan and chew his feet all the time. Now he seems to be comfortable. I no longer hear his tummy gurgling during the night. The pacing and gas have stopped. All in just one week! He is 2 1/2 years old and has turned his nose up at every food from Wellness to Pro-Plan to Kibbles and Bits. I can't believe that he is actually eating your dog food. For the past 2 1/2 years my vet has said he is underweight. I would tell her it is because he won't eat ANY brand of dog food. She told me to keep trying. We found he would eat cheaper food but with lots of itching and trembling. All that has ended thanks to your product. Please don't ever change the formula.

 

Pinnacle:
I want to thank you! I have 2 Bearded Collies, 6 and 7 years old, both get urinary track infections and crystals due to PH. I have done much internet research, changing foods, even using Science Diet C/D (which is crap). The only food that keeps them from both is Pinnacle dry and canned. You should market this food for dogs that get crystals due to high PH.

 

Trout & Sweet Potato:
We adopted a Border Collie Mix last spring.  She started itching in the summer.  The vet put her on steroids and diagnosis was eczema.  In the fall, I stop the steroids, but continued with special shampoo.  She still itched just not as much.  I vowed to find a way to keep her off the steroids. I bought a bag of Pinnacle Trout and Sweet Potato.  Within 4 days, I noticed a difference in her itching.   What a miracle!!  Thank you for making a great product. Thank you again!

 

Trout & Sweet Potato:
First, let me say a huge, heartfelt THANK YOU for providing my owners and me with such a wonderful product.  I am a five-year-old Boxer with lots of food allergies.  My humans took me to the vet several times before they finally found out just how many allergies I have.  I can't have poultry mix (chicken or turkey), corn, alfalfa, barley, brewer's yeast, flax, rice, or soybeans just to name a few.  You know that most food brands have either corn or rice so finding food for me is difficult.  BUT...the pet store my humans buy my food suggested Pinnacle Trout and Sweet Potato dry food and I just LOVE it.  No more itchy skin for me, which makes my humans happy. Thank you for making such a delicious meal for me.

 

Duck & Potato:
Precious-Pearl is a longhaired Chihuahua that had an upset stomach with other foods. Thanks for a recommendation from a nice lady that I spoke to me. Precious-peral is doing well with Pinnacle Duck and Potato and is no longer vomiting. I love this brand of food, thanks Breeder's Choice for giving us several options.

 

Trout & Sweet Potato:
Hello,
I have a Doberman that was given to us. He came with meds for allergies but the vet never said what type of allergy. He was given 2 pedisone & 2 benedryl each day. If I missed one dose, he would begin scratching non-stop until he had hair loss, blood and was just miserable. About 2 weeks ago, he got very sick with diarrhea and vomiting. We could not bring him out of it. But in the process of being sick, I was unable to give him his meds. I noticed his itching had stopped! This makes me think it is something in the food that he was allergic to. I finally went to 'Elite Kibble' in a city close to me. While talking with the storeowner, a Doberman owner came in and suggested getting the Pinnacle Trout and Sweet Potato. I was willing to take the chance. He has been eating it for about 5 days now and is not itching. THANK GOD! I am sold on this food!

 

Trout & Sweet Potato:
I am owned by two standard longhaired dachshunds Rowdy and Danni, both of them are retired show dogs. After battling skin issues, colitis and pancreatitis, we finally have found our food, Pinnacle Trout and Potato!

After being on Pinnacle Trout and Potato for just one week, my girl skin issue has almost completely resolved and her itching stopped. She no longer vomits and is starting to grow hair on her stomach. She is also way more active.

My boy also starting to grow hair on his ears, and his colitis has gone away. It is nice to not have diarrhea and to have normal poop for once, as he is finally off of all meds.

Thank you Breeder's Choice for such a nice lifesaving food. We love our Pinnacle dog food!

 

Trout & Sweet Potato:
Zoe, our Shar Pei was having terrible trouble with constipation while eating Premium Edge dry dog food. She also was licking her forearms. I switched her to your Pinnacle Trout & Sweet Potato dry food. She absolutely loves her food and smacks her lips the whole time she is eating and no more constipation! Additionally, she has stopped the licking. I never take the time to praise products, but Zoe is doing so well on your dog food. I thought you should know. Thank you!

 

Trout & Sweet Potato:
I have a 5-year-old Springer Spaniel who has suffered from a rash for most of his life. I had argued with vets repeatedly, telling them that he had allergies to something and not just a bacterial skin infection. This went on for about a 4-years before I finally convinced a vet to test him for allergies. They suggested using the "ID" formula, and had no results. Actually, I feel it made his rash worse. A friend of mine told me about your Pinnacle Trout and Sweet Potato formula (the only things the blood test showed my dog was not allergic too). I decided to try it last March and I must say, my dog is now one year rash free. Thank you for making such a product available for animals who suffer so much just from being hungry. I just wish more vets would recommend your products. My Ralphie would not have suffered so much for so long.

 

Chicken & Oats:
My 5-year-old lab, Taz, had chronic ear infections in his left ear for several years.  He was tested for a variety of conditions, including hyper-thyroid, but no firm conclusions could be made.  Almost in passing, the vet suggested that diet might be the culprit.  He was on a good dog food, Purina Pro Plan, but I decided a change couldn't hurt.  The owner of a local pet store suggested I try Pinnacle, as that was the food he used for his own dogs.  I took his advice, and in the nearly two years since, Taz has had only one ear infection.  I made no other changes.  I chose the Chicken and Oats formula because his previous food was chicken-based, and I thought it would require the least adjustment.  My experience has been that changing dog foods will often cause upset stomach for a
day or so, but Taz had no problem with the switch at all.  So, just wanted to let others out there know that diet can certainly make a difference in your pet's health, and Pinnacle is a great product.

We just started feeding our dogs the duck and potato and already after 24 hours our Yorkie can breath without grunting and snorting when she moves! We had no idea why she was doing it, we thought it was because she was over weight. Thank you so much for making this wonderful food! It’s well worth the price.

 

Duck & Potato / Trout & Sweet Potato:
My boyfriend and I have a 2-year-old, 7-pound Yorkshire Terrier named Cody. When he was around 8 months old, he began experiencing stomach problems undiagnosable without more invasive procedures. Under our veterinarian's and trusted groomer's advice, we switched to Pinnacle from Iams Smart Puppy food. His runny stool and vomitting episodes went away almost immediately and we have been loyal customers ever since. Because of the recent dog food recall, we have realized how lucky we were to find Pinnacle when we did. Seeing the images of those poor dogs with organ failure and thinking of what their owners must be going through makes us count our blessings. Our Cody is the most important thing in our lives and the most loved dog in the world!

Thank you for providing your safe and healthy food to us and I pray your safety record stays impeccable. Cody eats the dry food and loves both the duck and trout formulas!

 

Chicken & Oats:
I have been using the Pinnacle Chicken and Oats.  It really has made a big difference. Thank you for making such a wonderful dog food.  My 2-year-old Weimaraner Shar Pei mix has an extremely sensitive stomach.  We have had a very hard time finding a food for him.  I had just about lost hope, he was having diarrhea off and on for 2.5 months.  I bought a small bag of your food and within 24 hours he had normal stools! He loves your food!  I have never seen him get so excited to eat.

Thank you again and please don't change anything about your food - it works! Thank you so much!

 

Pinnacle:
I've been feeding Pinnacle food to my Standard Schnauzer for more than 9 years - she's the healthiest dog I've ever owned, her weight is perfect (even though she "free feeds" whenever she wants), and everyone thinks she is a young dog. Thanks for a great product!

 

Trout & Sweet Potato:
I just wanted to let you know how thrilled we are with your products. We adopted a 5-year-old male Pug with severe allergies last year & after much research, switched him to your Pinnacle Trout and Sweet Potato dry formula. He has been thriving on it & his allergies are no longer a major problem for him.

We recently switched our 10-year-old female pug to the Pinnacle Trout & Sweet Potato dry formula as well and she has never been healthier! She has a lot more energy & doesn't sleep all of the time like she used to on her old food. We couldn't be happier! We tell anyone who asks about what to feed their pugs to try your products.

 

Duck & Potato:
As I was feeding my dogs their evening meal of Pinnacle Duck and Potato, I felt compelled to write to your company and express my sincere gratitude for drastically improving my dog's quality of life.

Our family's nightmare started in the summer of 2007 when my Pit Bull - German Shepherd, Maxx, started to develop something similar to pimples around his mouth and "hot spots" on his paws. He was constantly licking these irritations and further perpetuating the problem. Medicine from the vet lessened the "pimples" from time-to-time but as soon as the medicine was gone, they would start to form again. I thought this was something we would be battling for the rest of Maxx's life. This was a nuisance, but things only got worse.

In October, the real problems began. My husband and I came home one evening to find Maxx crouched in the corner of his kennel amidst a mess of diarrhea and vomit. I had never seen him be so forlorn, sad and sick. We spent the rest of the evening rushing him outside, cleaning up messes and calling the vet. When I took him for a check up the next day, the vet suggested putting him on a special diet for a time and then putting him back on his regular food to make sure it was the food and not something else. Sure enough, Maxx would be fine for a short time and then we would come home to one of his "episodes". After a few more trips back to get cans of the "special diet" and try yet another food, the vet thought he might have to be put on a long term "special diet". In my mind, this simply equated to too expensive!

In one last attempt, I called my sister-in-law who is a vet-tech and she suggested buying a holistic brand food made with a protein and potato. The very next day, I bought your product and it has turned Maxx's life around and ours. We have had nothing but success with your food. His pimples have almost all cleared up and the hot spots are not longer there. He is a happy dog, and most importantly a healthy dog!

I know Maxx would love to tell you himself how much he appreciates your company, so I wanted to speak on his behalf. Again, your care and concern for high quality, natural food has enabled my dog to not have to suffer. For that, we all thank you!

 

Chicken & Oats / Duck & Potato:
Just figured I would write after visiting your site. I have a 15 lb Min-Pin and 4 lb Chihuahua. I feed both of them the Pinnacle food (chicken and duck). The dogs love the food, always have a very nice coat, solid stool since day one of eating the food, and always have tons of energy. Both dogs are very healthy and this is about the best food I could find. It is a little on the expensive side but you get what you pay for in the end and I am positive that this food is going to save me tons on vet bills. Again, just wanted to write in and let you know I am very pleased with the product.

 

Trout & Sweet Potato:
I just wanted to comment on how much my dogs love their new food, Pinnacle Trout & Sweet Potato. I have 2 English Mastiffs, Yona is 9 years old and Sully is 17 months old. I believe in feeding a good quality food like Pinnacle for good health for my dogs.

Thank you again for making a good quality food and caring about our pets!

 

Trout & Sweet Potato:
Boomer, our 6-month old Golden Retriever, was a mess before we found Pinnacle. We adopted him at 12 weeks and had yet to get him to have a solid stool by 6 months. He was terribly gassy and also was very itchy. Unaware of possible allergies I didn't know what to do.

After doing some research, I discovered he had some allergy issues and went out to get some Pinnacle Trout and Sweet Potato dog food. Within a few days the itching was gone, and about two weeks later, his stool is finally solid and the gas has lessened greatly. We are all so much happier to be in the house with him and not have it stink so much! I would recommend this dog food to anyone who thinks their animals might have some allergies. This food has honestly made such a HUGE difference in Boomer, I will happily pay the price to keep him healthy.

 

Trout & Sweet Potato:
Hi,
I love the Pinnacle brand of food that you make. I have an Irish Setter that has suffered with food allergies and we have figured out that it is rice, both white and brown. Your food has been a godsend for us. I would like to share the wonderful success we’ve had with your Pinnacle brand of food – Trout and Sweet Potato.

 

Pinnacle:
Jones, our 4-month-old German Shephard had diarrhea for seven weeks. We tried everything. We ran every possible test we could to make sure he didn’t have a health condition. We treated him with multiple medications, which provided no relief. We even took him to an internist for a consultation. After ruling out every possible health condition that could be causing the diarrhea, diet was the only thing left to consider. We had already tried five excellent quality dog foods, when Pinnacle was recommended to us on a Shepherd Forum. Within two days, Jones had completely normal stool. It was like a miracle. I can’t say thank you enough for making this food, and for making my dog so much healthier and happier!

 

Duck & Potato:
My name is Margaret Thatcher-lot-abull but you can call me Maggie.  I wanted to write to you and thank you for manufacturing such a yummy food for me.  I LOVE the Duck and Potato Pinnacle dog food.  I am a very picky eater, when it comes to dog food that is, people food I will eat anything.  My momma took me to a pet food store and the owner opened up samples of six different holistic foods and I went right to the Pinnacle.  It is the best!!!!!!  Thank you very much for looking out for my health!

 

Pinnacle:
I was feeding my miniature schnauzer, Rosie, a prescription dog food diet for her ID issues. Finding time to pre-order and then picking up her expensive prescription dog food was getting to be a hassle, so I searched for an alternative. I found the K-9 Cookie Co. while roaming my new town, and Bill, the wonderful proprietor, recommended Pinnacle's Trout and Sweet Potato formula for Rosie's sensitive tummy. The food is less than half the cost of what I was paying for the prescription food and I can run in and pick up a bag when needed.

I noticed immediate results. Rosie's coat is shinier, and she is feeling better since I've started feeding her the new food. She loves the Pinnacle food, and loves visiting her new friend Bill, who always has a tasty holistic treat for her when we visit our new favorite store.

Thanks Pinnacle!

 

Trout & Sweet Potato:
My 1 1/2 yr old Cockapoo, Gizmo, has had problems with loose stool since he was 12 weeks old. He was also constantly scratching, chewing his paws and rubbing his face. I had tried Solid Gold, Nutro, Natural Balance and Eagle Pack Holistic Select. I had some success with the Eagle Pack, however, they apparently merged with another company. This last bag of the anchovy formula he had previously been eating caused a terrible reaction. He got very loose stool, was vomiting and was out of his mind itching. I cut everything out and gave him steamed rice and jarred baby food. Much to my surprise, the rice did not stop either the loose stool or the itching. I made him boiled white potatoes with some steamed flounder. Within two days, the stool firmed quite a bit and the itching significantly subsided. Obviously, he is allergic to rice. After much online research, I purchased a bag of Pinnacle Trout & Sweet Potato. Gizmo loves this food! No transition time was required. For the first time in his life he has small, firm stool and no scratching, chewing, or rubbing. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I have finally found a food Gizmo can tolerate. I would highly recommend this food to anyone with a dog who has a sensitive stomach and is constantly scratching. Thank You!

 

Trout & Sweet Potato:
Dear Pinnacle,
We adopted a Border collie mix last Spring. She started itching in the Summer. The vet put her on steroids and diagnosis was eczema. In the Fall, I stopped the steroids, but continued with special shampoo. She still itched just not as much, I vowed to find a way to keep her off the steroids.

I bought a bag of Pinnacle Trout and Sweet Potato. Within 4 days, I noticed a difference in her itching. What a miracle!! Thank you for making a great product.

Thank you again!

 

Pinnacle:
Allow me to first start off by saying, “Thank you!” I recently switched from a dog food I trusted and used religiously for five years “cold-turkey”, I pulled my six bullies off of it when I found green plastic pieces baked into the kibble. This was also around the time of all the recalls happening in the industry. English Bulldogs are sensitive to start with. I spent all Spring and Summer 2007 at the Veterinary Clinic and twice at the emergency room. Three of the bulldogs were having food allergies that I was NOT catching on to. It was the food.

I could write and write about my horrible experiences with very ill dogs; poor customer service; from the dog food companies with which I had done business with for five years, and countless hours in my kitchen, cooking my own dog food for thirty days.

The positive side of my story is, I found Pinnacle! Boris does not need steroids for itching any longer!! Wyatt is off antibiotics, his skin and coat are bright and beautiful. My puppies have firm and consistent stools. On the other brand of dog kibble, I was adding 100% pumpkin to regulate a very loose stool, masking the real problem.

All my puppies are now sent to their new homes with a bag of Pinnacle, as well as the rescue dogs that I now help place through the Bulldog Club of America. In my contract I require that they continue to use it.

 

Pinnacle:
I had to write because I had started thinking all premium dog foods were alike until we tried Pinnacle Trout and Sweet Potato.  Our 5-year-old German Shepherd, Sundance, was diagnosed with not only severe allergies (ears, eyes, skin), but also had developed a perianal fistula. His coat was in bad shape and we switched from one premium dog food to another and within two months of another dog food, he developed the perianal fistula and had to be put on prednisone and antibiotics.

The vet said that perianal fistulas are common in German Shepherd’s and I had read that diet can play a role in reducing them from recurring and to try getting the protein from one source.  My vet recommended Pinnacle Trout and Sweet Potato, as he had always had poultry and rice based food. Our vet had seen some remarkable improvements in dogs that were eating Pinnacle.  
 
Unfortunately, while recovering and with the lowered immune system from the prednisone, he picked up a virus and had to stay at the vet for a few days for IV fluids so we had to delay starting him on the Pinnacle. He lost about 10 lbs. in a week and a half.  He is still being tapered off the prednisone, but the vet thinks he will continue to be allergy free on the Pinnacle.
 
Sundance has been eating Pinnacle now for just three weeks and nobody can believe the difference. His eyes shine, his ears are free from allergies, his coat is soft and his black saddle over his sides, back and muzzle just shine in the sun.  I don’t even get a brush full of hair when I brush him now and he has regained the weight he lost while he was sick.  Sundance’s energy levels prior to him being sick had also been dwindling.  He wasn’t keeping up on walks and was tiring easily. Since being on the Pinnacle, his energy level is back like it was when he was two!!  He could work all day and still have energy in the evenings to play with the cat.

We just wanted you to know that you have a very satisfied customer and one that is done trying different foods with no results.  You earned a life-long customer!  I know if he could, Sundance would thank you as well!

 

Trout & Sweet Potato:
We adopted Lily from the Lucky Dog Program at our local prison. She was found as a stray, survived parvo and went on to become our little lovebug. We used to feed her the more expensive brand of dog food from the grocery store but soon she developed an allergy to her food. We tried to find what she could have but eventually they had to do an allergy test on her. The allergy testing came back and said she is allergic to corn, white potato, rice, carrots, rabbit and alfalfa. It is SO HARD to find dog food that doesn't have any of these ingredients in them. But we found Pinnacle Trout and Sweet Potato formula. She hasn't had an allergic reaction since we started feeding her this food. She used to lick her paws raw and chew at her legs. No more since we found this food.

 

 

 

Cat Foods

Dear Pinnacle,
We have a retired breeder PixieBob who was used simply as a kitten factory. When she was retired, she was basically feral, so we have had a long challenge to civilize her. She had been fed only dry Friskies food with an occasional spoonful of wet Friskies as a treat. She has been a challenge to feed as she is unbelievably hard to please. I spent a lot of time doing research on cat food and found that she needed a low-carb high protein food. We tried a number of kibble brands but she refused them all. She also refused raw food completely. Finally, we discovered the Pinnacle dry food and it is miraculous!! She loves it and I feel comfortable that she is receiving a diet that is in keeping with her natural food requirements. I hope we will always be able to find this product wherever we travel, as we live full-time in a motor home.

Thanks for making a quality product that feeds our cat like a cat, not a cow!!!

 

Dear Pinnacle,
Your Pinnacle Peak cat food was a miracle for my 10-month-old cat Monty. He developed bloody diarrhea after being switched to Science Diet dry adult cat food. My vet told me to do some "sleuthing" and try some other brands. I did with no luck until I found Pinnacle. I was immediately impressed with the ingredients. By faith, I fed it to Monty and it was a miracle. Within 12 hours, his bowel movements were solid with no blood. Pinnacle is the best, and I will feed him nothing less. Thanks for your great product! I have passed this along to my vet and I hope she recommends Pinnacle to other patients.

 

I have a little feline companion named Curry who is sadly positive for FeLV. Though for the most part she is healthy, she has incredible sensitivity an to food. I used to buy the "sensitive stomach" type of dry food but she would vomit at least a few times a week. I even bought her the expensive Science Diet thinking that was the top brand food you could buy for a cat but Curry would still vomit her food.

One day I stopped into Bill's Wonderland of Pets to buy Curry her Science Diet but I was amazed that the store didn't carry it. I spoke with the owner to ask of its whereabouts and he took the time to ask why I had chosen that particular brand of food. I explained Curry's situation and he then told me I was giving her the wrong type of food. He showed me a healthier brand, which was the Pinnacle dry cat food. He explained the healthy properties of the food and even gave me a sample to ensure that I would see a difference with Curry. Your product worked miracles!! I was back at the store a day later and purchased a large bag for my baby. She will still throw-up occasionally, which is inevitable with her condition and somewhat normal for cats, but no were near what it used to be. Curry's coat looks healthier and she's much more active!

I went to my vet, who predominantly sells Science Diet in this office, and told them to do their homework! I showed them the empty sample bag of the food and told them this is what they should be selling. I love that they hadn't even heard of it. Thank you for making such a wonderful product. I will do my part and spread the word of your brand, as it truly speaks for itself.
