    Here's a little known fact that will help you keep your dog healthy: Never feed him a dog food whose name has more vowels than consonants, or he'll get worms.

    i guess these dog foods helps our dogs become strong and healthy.Dogs are just like humans,they become our best friend so it is better if we treasure them by giving healthy foods.

    My 17 year old wiemer Mateo has been on Eukanuba since I got her at 14 weeks. Soft shiny coat, bright eyes, strong teeth and only 2 small bowel movements a day and they are firm. She still has a high energy levels for being 119 in adult years. I suprise my vet twice a year because she can't believe she is in such great health, since a wiemers life expentancy is about 11-13 years. She still climbs the stairs in our house, she still loves to get out in the field to hunt albiet for not as long as when she was in her prime and she loves to play with our 4 year old Lab Fobo who is also on Eukanuba and has the softest shinest coat and the whitest teeth I have ever seen and can hunt all day long without tiring. I have hunted with a lot of dogs that were fed so called natural/holistic/performance dog foods but they all tire out within a few hours i guess because their food doesn't give them the energy like Eukanuba does. I know Eukanuba can't claim that they have given Mateo a longer healthie... Read more

    I decided to switch my Great Dane puppy to this food since they have a large-breed formula. My puppy would not eat the food. The food sat in the dish and a few days had gone by and he did not eat any of it. I bought a few other brands of food for him to try, and he ate everything except for the Eukanuba. I had bought a lot of this food since it was on sale at the time, and since I didn't want to waste it, I was hoping that another one of my dogs would eat the food...but he didn't. Well, none of my dogs would eat this food.

    My show dogs did exceptionally well on Eukanuba, especially the one I imported from Europe.

    When I first "got educated" about nutrition and dog food, I would have given Eukanuba negative two stars. Why? Because all of the people on forums and such told me that was what it should get. Then, a friend gave me an ingredient list and told me to say what I thought. I told him it was a somewhat decent food. Then he told me what brand it was. Eukanuba. Chicken, Chicken By-Product Meal, Corn, Sorghum, Brewers Rice, Chicken Fat, Fish Meal. Crude Protein not less than 28.00 % Crude Fat not less than 18.00 % Crude Fiber not more than 4.00 % Moisture not more than 10.00 % Two meat ingredient are first. One is by-products, however they are specifically chicken by-products and not a mystery meat. In my opinion, by-products are better than corn, wheat, etc., because while they are fillers, by-products have at least a little nutritional value. Still, they are by-products, not real meat. Corn is often used as a carbohydrate source in dog food. And the next two ingredient are also f... Read more

    The ingredients are absolutley terrible and my dog hates the taste and her skin was very dry and flaky. Now, she eats Taste of The Wild High Prarie dog food formula and she is in perfect shape. Try it, it's way better than this crud.

    My airedale loves this food and if I switch to anything else his behavior is not good and he has stomach trouble. I started with a less expensive brand, but now I really like this for my dog. Every dog is different, but mine has done beautifully on Eukanuba. His coat is so shiny. He looks great too!

    My experience has been with IAMS manufactured by Proctor & Gamble -- THEY ALSO MANUFACTURE EUKANUBA -- This is my experience: P & G Pet Food Products sold me tainted food and my dear dog is terribly sick due to this. I reported the incident to them on July 31, 2010 when the recall was announced. My dog has been terribly ill since eating this food ��� in fact all 4 of my dogs got sick from the carelessness of IAMS. My 8 year old dog isn’t getting better and was hospitalized this week for 3 days and still is not improving! IAMS did THIS to him! Then to add insult to injury IAMS has the WORST customer service EVER, rude to say the very least; not to mention the poor quality control. NEVER did they follow up and get back to me. Per IAMS’s request, I gave them my vet information. IAMS never followed through as they said they would do – BIG SURPRISE from such incompetent of an organization. After calling them yesterday and advising them of EXACTLY what they did to my belove... Read more

    I have used this product for 12 years for my two dogs. I know the formula must have been changed this last year as my dogs are hungry after eating and the male has gained a little weight. I have had them on one feeding with the Halo salmon stew and it holds their appetite. I am looking to replace eukanuba.

    My two Rat Terriers liked it, but I had to switch because it had corn fillers in it.

    I would have to say, even though Eukanuba is from Iams, it is still a higher quality food than Iams as it has more meat content.

    I love the Iams Company. There are a lot of people here who have no idea what their talking about, especially with by-products! Yes, some by-products are not safe or cleaned for that matter but not all by-products are created equal! The By-Products (Which contain high quality protein) used by the Iams Company (Which produces Eukanuba as their premium brand) always uses clean, cut chicken cartelidge and intestins! They do not use BEAKS, FEATHERS or any other un-usable source in their nutrition. I personally believe that their are few brands that compare to the quality in Eukanuba!! And as for IAMS, they shouldn't be degraded in a grocery store! IAMS & Eukanuba has CHICKEN or LAMB as their 1st ingredient in every formula and all those other brands which are in grocery stores NEVER have CHICKEN or LAMB as their 1st ingredient! Its usually Ground Yellow Corn. And that goes for Purina, Kibbles n'Bits, Pedagree & every other brand out there! High quality Chicken/Lamb based Proteins, Omega... Read more

    When I got my start in veterinary medicine 20+ years ago, there were two worthwhile food companies in the country: Eukanuba/Iams and Hills Science Diet. That was 20 years ago. Iams/Eukanuba is now a subsidiary of Proctor & Gamble, and the quality of their food is average, at best, with many of their formulas being significantly below average. Ingredient quality has dropped, and the focus is no longer on pet health but on marketing and profits.

    Bottom line is that it is way over priced. The food could be better, averaging about $1.20lb., there should be NO corn in the food. There is. AND some wheat, sorghum, and other "stuff"...IF the food was as good as the advertising, they might have something going....

    My lil guy will try other foods, but he wont eat them! He visibly loses weight when he doesnt have his favorite, Eukanuba. He is a healthy and happy dog because of this dog food.

    I am giving this food a three only because it helped my toy poodle put on much needed weight in a small time after her illness. Also because it is better than some other junk out there.I used the Eukanuba Maintenance adult small bite. She was doing good with this until she got about half way through the bag and I noticed she seemed to be constipated often. I left her on the food and just gave her some mineral oil but then she started to develop what I believe are skin allergies. She was constantly scratching and chewing her paws. When I would brush her (she is black) you could see the "dandruf" flaking off of her skin. Her belly was so red and reminded me of cradel cap on a newborn. You could just see her skin peeling. The ingredients read as follows- chicken chicken -by product meal, corn meal, ground whole grain sorghum, so I am thinking she is allergic to the corn or sorghum stuff. This was pretty expensive for me about $23.00 for 8lb bag so I expected more from the food but no... Read more

    I've been feeding my pup PEDIGREE until i realized dandruff coming out. I suddenly rushed to the vet and they advised me that Eukanuba is the best way to treat dandruff. Now my pup is dandruff FREE. He looks healthier than ever

    This is for Naturally Wild Eukanuba. I fed my dog the salmon with no problems. He liked the flavor. Just 1 of the small bags (12lbs i think). The venison gave him gas and diarrhea. For less money you can get Blue, which has more meat and veggies. Naturally Wild has too much grain (and cheap brewers rice as it is) to be so expensive. Who cares if the salmon actually came from the atlantic or farm raised. I eat farm raised salmon. Anyway, I'm trying ProPlan sensitive stomach for now. I also feed my dog store brand frozen veggies since there are none in ProPlan. That way he gets nutrition at a lower price, and with less carpet cleaning (solid stooles with ProPlan).

    My dog does best on Iams, but I went up to Eukanuba, which was substantially more.  I can get Iams for 13 dollars where Eukanuba was near 25 for a 20lb bag.  I couldn't justify paying more when Iams works so well for him and there didn't seem to be a difference in health or viger with Eukanuba.  Sooooo little difference in the ingredients though I'm sure Eukanuba has more protien.I'm back on Eukanuba.  And upping the rating to make up for all the people who shouldn't be reviewing but do.

    My dog loves this stuff. My Vet recommends it. I only get the Eukanuba Natural though. But I can't say I have done a ton of research on anything.

    My puppy absolutely loves the Eukanuba small breed puppy kibble. He has to be the pickiest dog I have ever owned, so I am glad I finally found a high quality kibble that he finds palatible. He's doing great on it too! For all the nay sayers to Eukanuba, please stop to consider that nearly all kibble is filled with grains, aside from a few grain free foods which are filled mainly with potato. Dogs need carbohydrates and are not exclusive carnivores. Eukanuba uses a good blend of carbs and uses high quality animal protein sources. I highly reccommend this food, especially if you are having trouble with a picky eater!

    Overpriced for basically being comprised of the same crap as most of the cheaper brands. Great marketing doesn't make a good dog food.

    I have a Bernese Mountain Dog pup, just over 4 months old.  I researched quite a bit to find a good food that would meet her needs.  I finally settled on Blue Lg breed puppy.  While she enjoyed the food she had very loose, very foul stool and gas.  Finally after a bout of diarreah, (and a serious accident on the carpet) it was time for a change.  I switched her to lg breed puppy Eukanuba, and it has been great.  She has tons of energy, looks great, and has solid stools. I called the company and asked about the corn in the food.  Their philosophy is that corn is a solid carb and so long as it is finely ground it is easily digestible.  Thus far I have to agree.  While there may be better human grade quality foods out there, I am not feeding a human.  So far so good and am very pleased.

    I have raised, trained and shown dogs for several years and have seven dogs at this time. I can't recommend this food. Many dogs do not find it palatable. We call it "Pukeanuba" here. Research what you are feeding. After switching to high quality truly meat-based food, our dogs are appreciably happier, healthier with excellent coat and even improved color. While dogs are omnivores and can survive on a grain based diet, I have found a great deal of difference in ours being on a meat based food. The good news, though pricey, a great food isn't that much more than high priced, low quality foods like Eukanuba. I know some dog people who love feeding Eukanuba and claim it is great. While not able to prove cause and effect, these same people have dogs with IBD, kidney failure at a young age and kidney cancer in one dog's prime. Not to mention, many episodes of bloat. Again, if you truly research the quality of ingredients, you won't need to read other people's input because it is ... Read more

    Filled with grains which are not easily digestible by most living creatures. False advertising and truly uncaring management. They were on the recall list for contaminated grain and some pretty shady things have been found in their ingredients that aren't necessarily harmful, just creepy.

    Wow, Lawrence was brave to include dog food in this test....Eukanuba isn't what it used to be but still is a quality food. I know people will disagree with me on that but there are a lot of dogs doing very well on this food. the problem I had with it was my guys got too fat on it...ok and its pricey.

    I tried the Sensitive Skin formula of Eukanuba for my Greyhound as trial for rotation of foods.  After a week on the food his hair started coming out in clumps... and he got this red hue to his skin (Greyhounds only have one coat and their skin is VERY visable).  I was horrified! He barely sheds for the most part, and here I am thinking this might be something good for him. It was after this experience that I seriously began to research dog foods.  I guess I fell for the hype on The Animal Network... sponsoring all those dog shows etc.  Will never use this product again, nor recommend it

    I have fed my English Setters Eukanuba Maintenence, Senior and Performance (during hunting season) for 7 years. My dogs are healthy, with great coats, no allergies and firm stools. They go for good runs 3-4 times per week and have great energy. Rarely do they have an accident in the house. I have read all the reiviews on this web page and my guess is many reviews were made by people who never fed their dog this product. My guess is many of them sell "natural" dog foods and want you to buy their product. I admidt I do not know much about Iams but am aware they have had some issues. Some reviews were probably wrote by people with one agenda or more. I trust my vet and he has been an excellent vet for my dogs for 15 years. He assures me Eukanuba is a very good dog food. I would ask your vet before you listen to all the negitives on this site. I always want the best for my dogs and I admit some of the products in Eukanuba do concern me. I am researching these new "natural" foods because... Read more

    It pains me to even admit that I ever fed my beloved Bacchus a Eukanuba formula. But I trusted his vets and their recommendations. Sadly, I have since come to the conclusion that most vets are just as ignorant, deliberately or incidentally, about dog nutrition as I was. I will not go into the many, many reasons to avoid Eukanuba; Puppyloverkb (see her review) has done a decent job reviewing some of the issues regarding the list of ingredients on the packages. For more detailed information on why this food is basically "junk in a pretty package" check out the following websites:, and for starters.I would, however, like to relay some of my personal experiences with Eukanuba. My dog (Bacchus) was raised on this junk for 6.5 years of his life (he is currently 7 years old). All seemed fine at first, but over a period of time gradual changes started to take place: his scratching increased, his eyes were constantly red, hot spots and sores w... Read more

    My dog, a rottie/german shepherd/chow mix, has a very touchy stomach. Eukaneuba he loves, and it doesn't tear him up. We used the wet stuff too, until the recall..but that's okay, it was making him fat anyway. I don't like buying a P&G; product, but if it makes my dog happy & healthy, I'll do it!

    I've fed my dog the Adult +1 Maitenance exclusively for 4 years after other brands upset her stomach. She has never had runny stools or other digestive issues related to this food. Usually the other "delightful" things she finds at dog parks, or in the yard ;-) Her energy, skin and teeth are all in excellent condition and her coat is extreemely soft and shiny.We got another dog from the shelter and it's coat at first was coarse and dull. We started him on Eukanuba as well and now while not silky (just not that kind of fur) it is very shiny and healthy, and he has plenty of energy beig a lab/chow mix. I am looking to switch only because of my research finding it is connected to IAMS even though I am not yet convinced that this is necessary, my piece of mind is worth it. I am experimenting with other organic vaieties adding the new variety gradually. One in particular she ate alright but two nights in a row she was sick after eating it. So needless to say that one is out. Hopefully she w... Read more

    My small dog T-Bone eats Eukanuba Adult Maintenance, and let me tell you, he is HEALTHY and Strong as an ox. 5 years old and feistier than ever. My uncle is a Veteranarian and he reccomends this dog food to many of his clients including my dog. Mind you, he has been practicing for about 30 years now, so I can assure you that he knows his stuff. My dog likes the taste also. The only drawback is, due to the fish meal in it, his breath is fishy.
