My dog, Leia, always my helpful buddy, was very excited when Jinx contacted her and asked her to check out her brand new meal toppers, which hit shelves just last month.

Customer service couldn’t have been better. They also wanted to offer Leia dental chews to try, which she sure would have loved the taste and texture of, but their team concluded that the chews were just a tad too big for our little six-pound senior, Maltipoo.

I really appreciated your care for my dog’s welfare; It made me even more excited to try their other products, knowing that care would be poured into their food creation too. It’s good to know that you can get quick, thorough, and personalized customer service when shopping your brand!

How did Leia like the new Jinx Meal Toppers? Here is her doggy review!

The goods

As soon as I opened the box of Jinx products, Leia started wagging her tail. She loved the smell!

As a person, I would say that both of the flavors of the meal toppers they sent – chicken and salmon – smelled exactly as they were described and quite intense which makes sense since the bags are designed so that you can put the toppers on the normal size of your dog can sprinkle wet or dry food.

It reminded me of human salad toppings, like croutons or pieces of bacon – taste explosions on most of your dish.

However, unlike human salad attachments, these are extremely nutritious. Jinx’s development consultants include two veterinarians and a pet nutritionist, and the products have undergone rigorous testing through a number of breeds – sounds like a cute gig for a dog! – to optimize your products.

Here are the brand’s nutritional principles:

  • Real animal protein: organic chicken or salmon is the number 1 ingredient
  • Natural superfoods: 20+ superfoods for extra nutrients
  • Patented probiotics: 60 million microorganisms for better intestinal health
  • Nothing bad: no fillers, artificial or preservatives

These all-natural meal toppers and all Jinx products were made in the USA. They have been freeze-dried to get maximum nutrients and they don’t need to be refrigerated.

The chicken variety increases omega 6 with calcium and phosphorus and supports healthy bones and teeth, and the salmon variety increases omega 3 and promotes healthy weight, skin and coat.

These meal toppers couldn’t be easier to use. It’s great that they don’t need to be refrigerated and the amount to use is printed right on the bag – 1/2 teaspoon, adjustable to your liking.

These are suitable for dogs of all ages, but as always, ask your vet if you have any questions about your dog’s diet.

The meal toppers are a nice treat for picky eaters or doggos who are just plain very good. Our puppy falls into both categories and I was pleased that not only did she love both flavors, but that using them did not turn her (perfect) nose up with her usual food.

Although the meal toppers ended up in their normal food bowl, she understood that they were treats, not for everyday use; However, I don’t understand why you can’t use these every day – you can ask your veterinarian for advice.

This has not always been the case when she rearranges the food that goes into her daily food bowl. Whenever she is given chicken and rice after dental work for an upset stomach or wet food, she usually goes on a small hunger strike for a while when we try to switch her back to her normal dry food.

It was also interesting to see how she devoured her dinner every time I gave her both kinds of meal toppers. She usually eats more moderately, eats something when it is used up, saves something for later, or sometimes doesn’t finish everything.

Hand back

Another aspect that is just as tasty as the flavors is the pricing. Not only are these items affordable, at just $ 10 a bag – $ 6 when you sign up – they’re 100 percent refundable if you or your dog are not satisfied – an unlikely prospect!

The best part is that one percent of every purchase goes to charity. They have worked to identify charities that are helping dogs, and you can even choose where to donate your purchase to:

Giving back and helping dogs everywhere get access to the food they need to thrive is an integral part of Jinx’s existence. From the very beginning, we’ve worked with several Los Angeles-based rescue organizations to donate food to shelter dogs in need. Additionally, we partnered with Beam to help dogs outside of our hometown and to give our clients the opportunity to help us with rescue across the country. One percent of every purchase goes to animal shelter dogs in need. Customers have the opportunity to determine where the donation from their purchase should go by selecting a rescue in the shopping cart before checkout.

Why Jinx developed Meal Toppers

With Jinx's

For me it is always fascinating to hear why someone developed a product, especially if it is nutrition or wellness oriented.

Terri Rockovich, Co-Founder and CEO of Jinx, says:

The addition of Meal Toppers and Dental Chews to our superfood portfolio was the natural next step in achieving our goal of becoming an all-encompassing canine wellness brand that is nutritionally rooted and helps modern dogs live their best Lead … Both toppers and dental chews are delicious and nutritious options that add to mealtime and enhance post-meal rituals.

Jinx Says, “The Jinx Salmon On Top and Chicken On Top Flavor Boosting Meal Toppers are designed with the goal of helping puppies everywhere enjoy their meals even more by adding variety to their meals and ensuring that even the most picky of them are Dogs are getting the balanced nutrition they need. ”

Dental chews

Although Leia was too small to try Jinx’s dental chews, they sound wonderful for dogs of the right size. Again, don’t hesitate to contact the wonderful customer service if you have any questions.

Here’s what Jinx has to say about their dental chew items:

“Jinx Dental Chews are the first functional chews on the market made from just four ingredients: sweet potato, chicken, honey and peppermint oil. Inspired by the need to offer dental chews with limited ingredients that are free of fillers and preservatives that make it easier than ever to meet your dog’s dental needs, chews provide daily oral care and can be consumed on a daily basis due to the limited ingredients and lower calorie content become.

Jinx All Smiles Limited Ingredient Dental Chews are available in two sizes:

  • Normal size for dogs 10 to 25 pounds
  • Large size for dogs 25 to 75 pounds

A damn delicious experience

Leia really enjoyed trying this new brand and food experience and I really enjoyed watching her. I felt great giving it to her knowing it was not only delicious but also a nutritional boost, like a vitamin! I will definitely buy more of these as soon as we run out.
