Eukanuba Sensitive Stomach 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.

Eukanuba Sensitive Stomach Dog Food First Five Ingredients:

  1. Brewers Rice
  2. Corn Grits
  3. Chicken By-Product
  4. Corn Meal
  5. Chicken Fat

Brewers Rice is the first ingredient and is considered to be a lower quality ingredient. This ingredient is also considered to be a by-product.

Corn Grits and Corn Meal are the second and fourth ingredients. 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 is 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.”

Chicken Fat is going to be the main source of fat. It’s safe to say that the ingredients before this ingredient are going to make up the majority of the dog food. This is a decent quality ingredient. You want to stay away from unidentified fat sources such as, “Animal Fat”

    For a “sensitive stomach” food this sure does have a lot of ingredients in it that will upset a dog’s stomach! Brewers rice is the left over garbage after all the “good” parts have been removed. Corn grits are non-digestible and often the culprit of allergies and upset stomachs. By-products can be good or bad depending on the source of them. Knowing Eukanuba, they’re probably bad, less digestible, and hard on the stomach as well. Then there’s beet pulp, another ingredient that causes all sorts of allergies, along with brewers yeast which does the same.

    When all else fails, this can be a godsend for some. There is nothing wrong with the ingredients list for dogs. Corn is a good ingredient and so is beet pulp according to the newest findings. People should not criticize unless its been tried and in this case for a dog who may be having constant stomach problems on regular dog foods.
