Summit is a new dog food brand launched by Petcurean. Petcurean own popular dog food brands such as Go! and Now Fresh.
Currently, Summit is only available in Canada.
Summit Product Range
Summit has a relatively small product range, which is unsurprising given they are very young. This range consists of four dry dog food recipes each with a targeted focus.
These include an adult recipe, a puppy recipe, a weight loss recipe, and a recipe for large breed dogs.
Sadly, the nutrition provided by Summit dog food recipes is not particularly impressive. This includes above-average proportions of carbohydrates and below average proportions of protein and fat.
Below is an example of the nutrition provided by a Summit dog food recipe.
The lower levels of protein and fat may not be sufficient for dogs who are more active. More active dogs need higher levels of protein to sustain their muscles and tissues and additional fat to utilize as a dense source of energy.
High-Quality Meat & Fish Ingredients
- Chicken Meal
- Salmon Meal
- Lamb Meal
The three meat and fish ingredients listed above are all considered to be high-quality. They can provide dogs with protein and fat which is critical to their diet.
They are some of the most common ingredients found in dog food. This is as they are relatively inexpensive when compared to some other meat and fish ingredients.
Other Notable Ingredients
Summit makes use of Eggs. Eggs are one of the most nutritionally dense foods available and provide a very balanced mix of nutrients.
Summit makes use of a variety of grain ingredients including Oatmeal Brown Rice, Rye, and Barley. Some of these grains, such as Oatmeal and Brown Rice, are considered to be the best grain ingredients to be found in dog food.
This is as they can provide additional nutrition beyond their carbohydrate content. This additional nutrition includes dietary fiber to aid digestion as well as vitamins and minerals.
Summit makes use of Canola Oil which is one of the two common vegetable oils used in dog food, the other being Sunflower Oil. These vegetable oils are added to provide additional fat, in particular, healthy fats such as the Omega 6 Fatty Acids. Learn more about these oils in our articles Canola Oil In Dog Food and Sunflower Oil In Dog Food.
Summit dog food includes small proportions of Flaxseed. Flaxseed is commonly added to dog food thanks to its potential health benefits. Flaxseed is the most reliable plant-based source of the Omega 3 Fatty Acids.
Learn more about Flaxseed in our article Flaxseed In Dog Food.
Summit Animal Testing
We currently have no information on what kind of testing, if any, Summit is involved in.
We strongly believe that laboratory and invasive testing of animals is a cruel and outdated practice and one which should be eliminated.
However, given the brand is still very young this is not particularly impressive or surprising.
In spite of this, we encoarage all pet owners to be careful and vigilent of any future recalls of Summit or any other pet food brand.
