Our review of Purpose Duck & Veggie Grain-Free Freeze-Dried Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.
The first ingredient is Duck. Duck is meat from any member of the Anatidae waterfowl. In pet food, duck can serve as a primary protein source as well as a source of animal fat, minerals, and amino acids. It is sometimes used as a novel protein, and is often an ingredient in diets formulated specifically for pets with allergies.
The second ingredient is Duck Neck. Duck neck is the neck of a duck that has been slaughtered for consumption. Meat and bones are typically included. While you might not see duck neck in pet food often, this ingredient is sold as natural dog chews and as raw meat for dogs. Duck neck offers a wide range of nutrients including protein, calcium, and amino acids.
The third ingredient is Duck Gizzard. Duck gizzard is an internal organ from any breed of duck. While this might not sound appealing to most of us, it is rich in a number of essential nutrients including iron and zinc. Added to pet food, duck gizzard is also a source of protein and amino acids.
The fourth ingredient is Duck Liver. Duck liver is one of a few organ meats that come from a duck. In pet food, duck liver serves as a source of protein, iron, and amino acids. It can be a source of novel protein in recipes formulated for pets with allergies.
The fifth ingredient is Organic Broccoli. Organic broccoli is a vegetable that’s in the same family as cabbage. It is grown without chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides. In pet food, organic broccoli serves as a source of fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to benefit your companion’s wellbeing.
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 Purpose Duck & Veggie Grain-Free Freeze-Dried Dog Food.

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.
