Ingredient Review

Our review of American Journey Landmark with Rainbow Trout and Herring Grain-Free Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Rainbow Trout. Rainbow trout is meat from cold-water fresh-water trout species. Often reserved for human consumption, the rainbow trout in pet food is high in protein and is a source of amino acids, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals.

The second ingredient is Herring. Herring is a general term for several species of saltwater fish. In pet food, herring can be a good source of protein, plus it offers many other important nutrients including essential fatty acids.

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 Dried Egg Product. Dried egg product can refer to dried or dehydrated egg white, yolk, or shells, or a combination of all three. The dried egg product found in pet food is a good source of healthy, easily digested protein.

When we analyzed the ingredients in American Journey Landmark with Rainbow Trout and Herring Grain-Free Dry Dog Food, we found that most of the protein is derived from meat based sources.

Nutritional Analysis

Your adult dog needs a balance of macro and micronutrients to thrive. A food formulated for adult maintenance or all life stages is made to meet these needs. While there can be a lot of variation in actual calorie density, adult dog foods are generally intended to provide for basic calorie needs of the average active dog. In addition to satisfying their energy needs, these foods provide the protein, fat, carbohydrates, fiber, and other nutrients your adult dog needs to survive. Again, not all adult foods are the same, so you may have to search around for the right fit for your dog.
