About Pinto Canyon Pet Food
Your pets will be over the moon! We know because we taste test every recipe!
Our family has been serving pets since 1998 when, by a stroke of good luck, we chose FlintRiver.com for our online
store and discovered Flint River Ranch oven-baked pet food! Our pets loved it, their health improved, and we became distributors!
We've received countless reports of pets thriving on our
baked food, with more energy, vitality, longer lives, and reduced vet bills.
Old-fashioned baking is natural.
Slowly baked kibbles are more nutritious, easier to digest, and not hard like extruded foods. They're
perfectly browned and crispy like Grandma's baked cookies!
When Flint River Ranch went out of business
Kim refused to let pets down! She wants the best food for
her cat and dog and for yours.
She worked with board-certified veterinary nutritionists, food scientists,
veterinarians, and other qualified and experienced professionals to improve
the Flint River Ranch recipes our pets loved! Read how Pinto canyon compares to FRR.
We want you to know the truth about your pet's food.
Unfortunately, pet food recalls are too common, marketing teams are skilled,
and the level of trust in pet food is low; it's hard to know what to believe.
Hopefully, it's not too obvious: Kim is our marketing team! She simply tells the truth.
But we don't expect that you just believe us; we let you know the reasons behind our decisions,
and we cite the sources of our information, including studies, tests, and articles.
Oven-baking and quality ingredients set Pinto Canyon Pet Food apart, and there's more:
- We don't add yucca schidigera extract to any of our recipes. Our research uncovered
startling information about this ingredient: it's added to control stool odor, but it's not approved for that use in cats and dogs!
Just because it's a plant does not make it safe! Even human supplements of YSE state that it should not be used indefinitely.
- Probiotics are far more effective when kept separate from food.
The typical approach of cooking probiotics into pet foods looks good on the label, but they're unlikely to benefit your pet.
Our unique approach maintains viability and provides maximum benefit: our probiotics aren't subjected to the heat of cooking,
the feeding amount can be adjusted, and they can (and should) be kept refrigerated so that the microorganisms are kept alive and dormant until they are eaten.
- You want quality food, not glitzy packaging.
Our goal is to provide high quality, safe nutrition for pets with the lowest cost and least environmental impact.
We save you money with packaging that simply fulfills its purpose.
Our paper bags are the perfect container for our foods, and
provide the information you need (large enough to read it!).
Your pets love our food based on its merits, not its packaging.
- Pinto Canyon pet food is carefully stored in climate-controlled conditions because it's food!
This level of concern is why you
won't find our foods sitting on retail shelves or on other online sites. We're extremely particular about the handling of our food.
Our customer service representatives are well-informed, pleasant, and helpful.
How long will a bag last? How much should you buy? How often should you feed?

We want you to have all of the information you and
your veterinarian need to make an informed decision regarding your pet's nutrition. Our site is loaded with detailed information:
