Shetland Sheepdog: Eukanuba or Canidae?
i m thinking to feed my pet Eukanuba because soo many ppl use it and its the only food at the pet shop cause the guy said its a great brand. so i m thinking to feed my 2 month old puppy Eukanuba since the food Canidae is sold at rlly cheap pet shops. i checked both out the 1 selling eukanuba were filled with people buying and it was on a nice place right inside the mall and canidae was in this rlly poor looking shop where people that do drugs live and i checked al 3 canidae pet shops near me all were like that exept Eukanuba. so what shoud i do i m thinking to feed him eukanuba should i why or why not?

Nothing really bad about Eukanuba. It is a premium dog food. Over priced for the ingredients. Canidae is a super premium and an excellent food. What would I feed, Canidae, without any hesitation.
Answer by Bozema
Canidae is a far better food than Eukanuba. Far better ingredients, no fillers, much better quality. Don't judge the food by the pet shop.
Answer by f16_flying_otter
I'd go with the Eukanuba - it is a higher quality food with less fillers and therefore better for you dogs.
Answer by bobbi
Eukanuba is a wonderful food, highly recommended by vets. I would go with that, so that you know you are giving your pet all the proper nutrients that he needs to grow strong healthy
Answer by Shanna
Eukanuba is crap! Canidae is a wonderful food.
Answer by Stephanie Loves Sammy
u r basing the food on where it is sold u should be basing it on ingredients. canidae is actually a top quality food. eukanuba is crap. eukanuba has a lot of grains in the food. while canidae uses a lot of meats and less grains. canidae is a lot better quality food than eukanuba. a dogs natural diet is meat not grain and fillers. so choose the dog food that has more of the natural diet and less fillers. it doesnt matter what the shop looks like. they sell a high quality food. personally i would choose canidae. i get my dogs food from a feed store that sells only top quality food. it looks like a nasty disgusting place but i go there because they sell the food that is good for my dog
Answer by believer
I think you are confused, or live in a backwards city. Canidae is not sold at only cheap pet stores. Not where I live. I have to go to a specialty store to get it. Why don't you simply read the ingredients to decide.
