Customer reviews:

“I always buy my big dog American Journey kibbles because I like the quality and the price! Daisy loves this food, she’s not a picky eater but I feel good about the ingredients that she’s eating. We also mix in American Journey brand salmon oil. She’s been on these foods for more than a year and her coat is beautiful, she’s healthy and active, and always looking forward to her meals! We like to change the recipe every month, she loves them all!”

“American Journey Salmon was a winner for Buster and Spanky! From the moment the box was open all noses on deck over the bag! Busters eyes bulged out as I pulled the large bag from the box! Spanky wagged his tail at warp speed with anticipation. Oh and what a reward when they had their first full cup!”

  1. Chicken
  2. Chicken Broth

  4. Chicken Liver
  5. Dried Egg White

Not many brands offer a wet food that is just as strong as their dry food, but American Journey delivers on both. In this variety pack, either chicken or beef will be the top ingredient, with the second ingredient being a savory broth that adds taste to the high-quality protein sources. Made in the USA, you know you’re getting a quality American product.

These recipes are free of by-products, grains, corn, wheat, soy artificial flavors, and preservatives. With 8% protein, and 5% fat (lots of omegas) you’ll sleep like a baby knowing you’ve just fed your dog great wet dog food.


Customer reviews:

“I first got this on sale about two months ago, when one of our dogs got really injured and couldn’t eat hard food. He’s all better now, but he still insists on having this added to his hard food. The new pup loves it too. I mix in some of it with their hard kibble, and they lick it clean. Great price, too. Will keep ordering these, cause our goofballs absolutely love it!”

“Our dogs eat dry dog food but they are such good puppies that we treat them to American Journey deliciousness for their evening meal. We mix about 2 tablespoons with their food and they are in heaven. It smells wonderful and they love it. Highly recommend.”
