Eukanuba was founded in 1969 by Paul Iams. He chose the name Eukanuba from the world of jazz which used the word to define excellence or “tops”. Paul believed in producing a dog food that that would be excellent in nutrition and allow the dog to achieve excellence with it.
Eukanuba is a high quality dog food manufacturer that bases its recipes on the belief that dogs are instinctually and genetically carnivores. With this in mind, Eukanuba uses high quality meat proteins-primarily chicken and lamb- as the basis for the nutrition in the meals, not vegetables. For over 40 years, Eukanuba has unwavered in its beliefs that dogs should be fed as nature intended.
Eukanuba is highly respected by breeders and their key organizations. This respect has led to partnerships with groups such as the American Kennel Club and the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI).
Eukanuba offers an extensive promise of high quality dog food. They take steps that above and beyond the industry standard to ensure that the food you serve your dog is safe and nutritious. Their meat proteins are all traced back to their source including the United States, New Zealand, and Europe and they ensure that all of those meat proteins are suitable for human consumption.
Each bag of Eukanuba dog food is subjected to rigorous testing at every step of the manufacturing process beginning with the suppliers and ending before each bag is filled. The American Institute of Baking International which is responsible for inspecting manufacturers of human foods do yearly inspections of the Eukanuba dog food manufacturing process. Eukanuba has received their highest ranking of “superior” for 10 years – an honor many human food producers envy.
Eukanuba has dog food for all stages of your dogs life. Whether your dog is a puppy, an adult, or a senior, Eukanuba has a product to maximize the health of your pet.
