Our family has been serving pets online since 1998 when we discovered Flint River Ranch oven-baked pet food! Our pets loved it, their health improved, and
so became our passion for serving the best pet food possible!
We saw what the lack of oversight did in 2007 when thousands of pets were sick due to tainted foods.
We're a small company, but we make absolutely sure our food is safe and healthy!
Countless customers have told us their dogs and
cats are eating well and thriving on our
baked food, with more energy, vitality, 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
we refused to let pets down! We want the best food for
Kitty, Bubba, and Bailey, and for your pets too!
We 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: we don't have a marketing team! We simply tell 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 (YSE) 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 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:

Dogs love Pinto Canyon!
Cats love Pinto Canyon!
Your pets will be over the moon!
We're passionate about pet nutrition! Stray cats and dogs haven't had good nourishment, and need a wholesome, high quality food.
After rescuing Kitty,
ruler of our lives, we couldn't find a food that pleased her. She informed us that turkey is her
favorite, so we created Pinto Canyon Turkey Recipe for Cats & Kittens
specifically for Kitty! After over a year, her kidney disease is stable, she's eating well, drinking well, and not losing weight!
She's even plump! Her veterinarian is pleased and impressed with how well she's doing!
