Earlier this month our Lyla started on a new dog food by Chewy.com called American Journey. Please read my first post that introduces you to the brand.
This is a follow-up article to let you know how Lyla is adjusting to her new food.
Disclosure: As part of the Chewy.com Blogger Program, and a Chewy Influencer, I received free product and or payment to facilitate this article. I am highly selective on products for my pets and I would only showcase items I trust, from brands I trust.
American Journey is a healthy, wholesome dog food that is free from grains, wheat, corn, and soy.
When we first presented American Journey to our Lyla she gobbled it up. I was curious to see if she continued to love it or if she chowed down because it was new to her. We have discovered that Lyla’s love for American Journey has stayed true to her first experience with it. She still gobbles it up. Lyla seems to think it is a treat rather than her regular food!
Since I could not get a good photo of Lyla eating American Journey with her head buried into the bowl, I decided to do a short video. You can see how much she is enjoying it!
Our cat Tibet, who seems to think she is a dog in many ways, also loves the food. I will admit, I give her a few bits to enjoy after getting her away from Lyla’s bowl.
I am really hoping that Chewy.com comes out with an American Journey cat food line!
To be honest, it does smell good. I mean sure, it does have a dog food aroma to it but it is really quite pleasant.
I am also happy to report that Lyla’s dry skin on her back is clearing up nicely. She still has some dry skin but I would say it is 75% better than it was before starting her on this food.
We have seen no issues with her tummy being upset from the switch in her food. Lyla does have a sensitive tummy so if she were going to experience issues, we should have seen that by now.
Another noticeable difference since switching to American Journey is Lyla’s energy levels! Lyla will be 8 years old on April 1st so she is not a puppy. Lyla also has some issues with her legs, knee caps, and deals with arthritis. Our poor pup is not always so eager to get moving. Since feeding her American Journey she has wanted to stay out longer on walks! My husband also noticed that Lyla is perkier and more interested when on car rides.
Overall she just seems happier, healthier and has more energy. That makes us happy!
So far we are quite impressed with American Journey and we love that it is made in the U.S.A by a company we trust.
I guess the only suggestion I would have for Chewy.com on this dog food would be a request. I would love it if the bag were resealable. Or maybe if it came with one of those nice storage bins! As for now, we use clips to hold the bag shut.
At month’s end, I will have a 3rd and final article on this dog food to sum things up. I will give you my final impression and let you know if we plan to continue feeding Lyla American Journey dog food or not.
