Ingredient Review

Our review of American Journey Landmark Trailhead Blend with Cage-Free Chicken & Turkey Grain-Free Puppy Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Deboned Chicken. Deboned chicken is chicken meat with the bones removed. In pet food, deboned chicken is a valuable source of protein.

The second ingredient is Deboned Turkey. Deboned turkey is a general term for turkey meat that has had the bones removed. The deboned turkey in pet food is a valuable protein source as well as a source of other essential nutrients to benefit your companion’s overall wellbeing.

The third ingredient is Turkey Meal. The turkey meal in pet food is typically a byproduct of turkey meat production. Turkey meal is high in protein, and is easy for pets to digest. It is a good source of B vitamins and amino acids to support your pet’s overall well-being.

The fourth ingredient is Chondroitin Sulfate. Chondroitin sulfate is a natural anti-inflammatory agent that is often combined with glucosamine. The chondroitin sulfate in pet food, treats, and supplements is often intended to support healthy joint function, particularly in aging companion animals.

The fifth ingredient is Chicken Meal. In pet food, chicken meal is often listed as a source of protein. Chicken meal is produced by baking and grinding chicken meat and skin. As a dry form of animal protein, it is most often found in kibble and treats.

After the fifth ingredient, the list includes all remaining ingredients. It’s worth noting that ingredients (other than nutritional supplements) located this far down on the list aren’t likely to have an impact on the overall rating of this American Journey Landmark Trailhead Blend with Cage-Free Chicken & Turkey Grain-Free Puppy Dry Dog Food.
