Diamond pet foods tend to include more fruits and vegetables than competing brands such as Victor. Unfortunately, however, Diamond has had multiple recalls.

Contents

Protein

As this food is tailored specifically for active dogs, 89% of its calories come from protein sources – more than most “maintenance” dog foods might provide. Protein comes from meat meals as well as small amounts of dried fermentation products and sodium selenite (an artificial form of selenium).

This recipe is free from corn, wheat and soy and guaranteed to contain 25% minimum crude protein. The first ingredient is beef meal – cooked, dried and finely ground beef from any cattle breed – while grain sorghum and ground white rice comprise other key components. Chia seeds, flaxseed, quinoa and kale add fiber, vitamins, minerals and omega fatty acids while this formula also features glucosamine and chondroitin for active dogs’ joint health.

Fat

Working and sporting dogs need a diet designed to support their athleticism – be it herding sheep, sniffing out illegal drugs, or zipping through an agility course. Diamond’s recipe provides them with protein- and nutrient-rich energy they require in order to support normal functions, fuel endurance and reduce fatigue and injury.

Beef meal, made from cooked and dried ground beef from any breed of cattle, is the main component of this food product. Next up are pork products made from meat harvested from domestic pigs that has also been cooked and dried before being ground finely for processing into meal form.

This food features a moderate amount of fat from vegetable sources like flaxseed and quinoa seed. Additionally, it’s fortified with glucosamine and chondroitin for healthy joints in active dogs, plus K9 Strain probiotics as beneficial bacteria.

Carbohydrates

Diamond Pro89 is a high-protein maintenance dog food designed to give active canines all of the energy and protein they require for an active lifestyle. Plus, this formula offers guaranteed levels of glucosamine and chondroitin to support joint health!

This formula begins with beef, which refers to any animal from any cattle breed and may be fresh, frozen-dried, dehydrated or ground into beef meal. Next comes pork which refers to domesticated pig meat.

Diamond works hard to develop lasting relationships with its suppliers and conducts thousands of quality and safety tests each week in order to ensure consistent quality and safety standards are upheld.

Vitamins

Working and sporting dogs require special nutrition in order to thrive at herding sheep, sniffing for illegal drugs, or zipping through an agility course. This formula provides protein- and nutrient-rich fuel that allows active adult dogs to perform at their best; also included are guaranteed levels of glucosamine and chondroitin to support hardworking joints.

Diamond Pet Foods’ Performance Dog formula features real beef as its first ingredient and protein from energy-dense sources to provide performance dogs with all of the essential nutrients for building strong muscles, supporting normal body functions, and fuelling endurance. Furthermore, this brand contains probiotics to promote healthy digestion. There have been no reported recalls since 2013. In 1999, after outgrowing their Meta plant, Diamond Pet Foods relocated their manufacturing operation to Lathrop, California. A year later Michael Kampeter’s sons joined his company and helped it expand.

Minerals

Active dogs need specific nutrition in order to perform at their peak, whether that means herding sheep, sniffing out illegal drugs, or zipping through agility courses. This recipe provides plenty of protein while fortifying it with amino acids from energy-dense sources to build and sustain strong muscles.

This food features K9 Strain probiotics to support digestive and immune health. Furthermore, flaxseed, quinoa and chia seeds offer omega fatty acid sources and provide omega 3s. Finally, this food includes chelated minerals which are chemically attached to proteins so as to be more easily absorbed by the body.

Overall, this food earned the Advisor’s second-highest tier rating with 4.5 stars and was recommended for active adult dogs. No recalls were reported and its manufacturer, Diamond Pet Foods is family owned, with locations in South Carolina, California and Missouri producing dry and canned foods as well as several special diets like Diamond Naturals CARE Pro89 diets.
