Our review of American Journey Limited Ingredient Grain-Free Venison & Sweet Potato Recipe Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.
The first ingredient is Deboned Venison. Deboned venison is meat from an elk, deer, or antelope, with all bones removed. In pet food, deboned venison can be an excellent source of protein, iron, vitamin B12, and many other essential nutrients to support your companion’s well-being. Venison can be a novel protein in diets for pets with sensitivities, too.
The second ingredient is Sweet Potatoes. Sweet potatoes are added to pet food as an easy-to-digest source of grain-free and gluten-free carbohydrates. They contain high levels of fiber, along with a number of important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
The third ingredient is Peas. In pet food, iron proteinate is added as an easily absorbed form of the essential mineral iron. Your pet needs iron to produce hemoglobin, which transports oxygen throughout the body.
The fourth ingredient is Pea Protein. Pea protein is a good source of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. While the pea protein in pet food isn’t normally a primary protein source, it is easy to digest and it’s also a good source of fiber.
The fifth ingredient is Venison Meal. Venison meal is cooked, dried, finely ground meat from an elk, deer, or antelope. In pet food, venison meal can be an excellent source of protein, iron, vitamin B12, and many other essential nutrients to support your companion’s well-being. Venison meal can be a novel protein in diets for pets with sensitivities, too.
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 Limited Ingredient Grain-Free Venison & Sweet Potato Recipe Dry Dog Food.
