Eukanuba Puppy Growth Dog Food Review

As with all dog food recipes the first thing we are going to look at are the first five ingredients. The first five ingredients are a good indication of the quality of the dog food. When looking at the first five ingredients you want to make sure there is plenty of meat and grains are minimal.
[tab:First Five Ingredients:]

Eukanuba Puppy Growth Dog Food First Five Ingredients:

  1. Chicken
  2. Corn meal
  3. Chicken By-Products
  4. Ground Whole Grain Sorghum
  5. Brewers Rice

Chicken is the first ingredient in this recipe. This ingredient is inclusive of its water content. Meaning that once the water is removed and this ingredients becomes a dried ingredient it will weigh significantly less, thus making it fall further in the ingredients list.

Corn Meal is the second ingredient. Some believe that’s dog’s digestive systems have a hard time digesting this ingredient. Corn in excess has also been linked to many cases of dog allergies.

Chicken By-Products are the third ingredient. This ingredient is impossible to determine the actual quality of. The AAFCO definition of chicken by-product meal is “a meal consisting of the ground, rendered, clean parts of the carcass of slaughtered chicken, such as necks, feet, undeveloped eggs and intestines, exclusive of feathers, except in such amounts as might occur unavoidable in good processing practice.”

Sorghum, the fourth ingredient is of lower quality and is primarily a filler that offers an additional source of carbohydrates.

Brewer’s rice is the fifth ingredient and is a lower quality grain and is also considered a by-product.
