Shetland Sheepdog: Eukanuba vs 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 really cheap pet shops. so what should I do I'm thinking to feed him Eukanuba should I?

Nothing really bad about Eukanuba. It is a premium dog food. Overpriced for the ingredients. Canidae is a super premium and excellent food. What would I feed, Canidae, without any hesitation.
Answer by Bozema
Canidae is 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 higher quality food with fewer 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 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 fewer grains. canidae is a lot better quality food than Eukanuba. Dogs' natural diet is meat, not grain and fillers. so choose the dog food that has more of the natural diet and fewer fillers. it doesn't matter what the shop looks like. they sell 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

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.
First 10 ingredients on Eukanuba Adults maintenance formula
Chicken by-products (aka beaks, bones, lips, and a-holes!)
Cornmeal (one of the top allergy ingredients to dogs)
Ground Whole Grain Sorghum
Ground Whole Grain Barley
Fish Meal (source of fish oil)
Chicken Fat (preserved with mixed Tocopherols, a source of Vitamin E, and Citric Acid)
Natural Chicken Flavor

Canidae is a far better product than Eukanuba just read the label that should say it all.

More important that where the food is sold are the ingredients, and how your dog responds to the food. No one food is the best for every dog. If you got your puppy from a breeder, talk with him or her, as a line of dogs often does well on the same food. If not, do some research, study the ingredients, and talk with your vet. You can find the ingredients on the manufacturer’s web site; no need to try to read the bags in the store.
Yeah that sounds like a great reason why you should feed a poison garbage dog food over a quality dog food.. I suspect you are trying to start trouble or you would just go and get your Eukanuba without asking for advice..
I would without a doubt, feed Canidae…
I have fed both and really love the Canidae, so do my dogs :o)
it is a far better food and depending on the size of your dog, it will not matter with this food, the pieces are small enough for small dogs or puppies, human grade holistic goodness, Canidae wins hands down, it’s just that Eukanuba may be more well known as it is mainly in pet stores like petsmart…you will only find Canidae in select stores that stock high grade food.
Ok, as a seller of Canidae, i can’t believe you would even consider Eukanuba. Have you read what ingredients are in Euk? Canidae? Canidae is an all natural/hollistic dog food, where as Euk is commercial dog food. Yes, Euk is fine, but Canidae is much healthier, and better for the dogs skin and coat ( to avoid skin problems ).
Canidae isn’t sold at really cheap pet shops, they are sold at Specialty pet shops, that actually CARE about what goes into your animals body.
Canidae is a way better choice, but if you aren’t willing to pay the money and take the drive, then commercial dog food is for you..unfortunatly.
