PostSubject: Is Eukanuba good puppy food ?   Tue Feb 21, 2012 12:10 pm

Hi everyone I was wondering if Eukanuba is a good brand to feed a husky puppy its what they told me they were feeding her when I got her so I didnt want to switch it right away but ive noticed a she was doing real good with her poop in the begining now it has seemed to be kind of runny. I know Im not feeding her two much or two little . I did just got her one of those slow feeding dishes so she doesn't scarf her food down in 10 seconds I'm hoping that makes a difference it took 5 minutes to eat her breakfast today plus i think she get exercise trying to get her kibble but I didnt see her poo as she went beforeshe ate in the morning and I had to go to work . I was hoping I can get some suggesting on how much to feed her at 10 weeks it says a 1 3/4 cups or if there a better brand i should try switching over to?

Personally I don't like that brand... too many fillers, questionable quality, and overpriced for what it is. Companies hat I have fed and would recommend more-so than Eukanuba would be: wellness, taste of the wild, blue wilderness, and Orijen just to name a few. They all have puppy formulas.

Also overpriced, ingredients are of same quality as eukanuba. It's a "veterinary" diet but that doesn't mean squat unfortunately.

Don't feel bad - just buy a bag of better food and mix it into this one, or donate your open bag to a local shelter! Smile We had to do that with Solid Gold, we bought the big bag when we got Chili since the rescue feeds that but he couldn't tolerate the wheat and had diarrhea the whole time we fed him that.

If you want a good in depth analysis of dog foods please go to this website. It helped me a lot when picking the right food for Luna.

Spent a few days wandering this site.
http://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/
The place where I bought Luna were feeding her Royal Canine and I immediately took her off of it. I went straight to the 5-star food and put Luna on Orijen Puppy Large. I spent about $43 for a 15lb bag and that usually lasts her a month. I feed her a cup in the morning at around 7-8am and then she gets another cup at around 5-6pm. So a total of 2 cups per day. She is now currently on her first bag of Orijen 6-Fish but I'm going to switch it up every month going to Orijen Regional Red to Orijen Adult. I like my baby to have a variety. I know I wouldn't like eating the same thing everyday haha.

we started out feeding layla the eakanuba(spelling) she liked it at first but then got to were she would put off eatin till she had to. we switched her to blue buffalo and she loves it. her coat even started to look better after about a week. im sure the other brands listed above are probly even better, but for the cost and availability blue buffalo was a win for us.

I used to work for a feed store and Eukanuba came out to "teach us" about the brand and its okay if you want to plump you guy up it does have a lot of fillers, How ever its not as bad as say OL' Roy and ya you do pay for the name not the ingredients, i feed Diamond lamb and rice
and its working great for river he only poops 1 a day and if you get a food high in fillers they will be pooping alot more. but thier are a ton of good brands out there for a good price
i would love to feed totw but realisticaly i cant afford paying 50 buck a bag. I spent 23.99 for a 40lb bag of diamond and like i said it works good for me
