Eukanuba Small Breed Adult 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 Small Breed Adult Dog Food First Five Ingredients:

  1. Chicken
  2. Chicken By-Products
  3. Corn Meal
  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.

Chicken By-Products is the second 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.”

Corn Meal is the third 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.

Sorghum, the fourth ingredient is primarily a filler and offers an additional source of carbohydrates. We feel there are better sources of carbohydrates. Sorghum is a lower quality ingredient.

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

    Why is Eukanuba so darn hard to find!! We live in a small town and have to drive to Asheville to find it! That is very inconvenient.

    Ive been giving my dog this dog food forever! But it says that its not a good dog food brand, so im sorta worried. My dog does have allergies such as licking himself a lot, yellow fur,and itchyness. Im worried that this food is the reason for his allergies. His vet said hes okay, but im not sure if she knows that it could be from this dog food. Im gonna try to switch his dog food to something else like Ceaser maybe?

    Ana you might want to try Flint River Ranch’s Lamb Millet Rice food for dogs with allergies and sensitive stomachs. It doesn’t used the top 3 allergens of dogs corn wheat and chicken. It is also chemical preservative free which can also cause allergic reactions. My dau. BC was literally going bald and constantly chewing, licking scratching etc from the itching. Once she was put on this feed her fur grew back, the scratching etc stopped and she was like a new dog. BEWARE though, all it takes is a single treat with the allergen(s) that causes a reaction to set the dog back to square one. So once you start an anti allergy diet all treating must stop because even a “little bit” can do a lot of damage.
