Eukanuba is a big brand worldwide, and you can find their products in most pet food retailers. I often speak to people who’re proud to feed this food, believing it’s high quality. But is it? Let’s see…
This review is for the Chicken and Turkey recipe, but the other varieties are on par.
First off we find dried chicken and turkey as the main ingredient. This isn’t to be sniffed at, and all dog foods should have decent meat content right at the top of the list. Being “dried” is a good thing as if the main ingredient was regular “chicken and turkey” then most of the meat content will be reduced after cooking. Uncooked chicken is approximately 70% moisture, so using dried meat ensures a greater density of meat.
The food goes down hill from here. Wheat is the main grain, and it’s one of the worst grains in a dog food being one of the most common causes of allergies. Maize isn’t that great either, nor is sorghum which is starchy and hard to digest. We also find Barley which really gives us a whole range of grains in this food, and this isn’t a good thing. Grains are mostly used because they’re cheap and they really pack out the food, which is great for the company as they make a better profit, but it’s not great for your beloved pooch.
Fish oil is found in the food as a source of omega fats and nutrients and is good for a glossy coat, but I question what they mean by “fish”.
At least the chicken and turkey content is 28%.
If this has helped you please take the time to share it to other Australian pet owners. Thank you 🙂
Where to buy?
Decent lean meat content.
Far too many grains, and they’re not good grains either.
