dog-pdIams vs Eukanuba

Eukanuba and Iams are both known as super premium food brands among some of the top pet food brands. Both brands are manufactured by the same company, Procter and Gamble Pet Care. Generally, Eukanuba is better known as a brand name, just like Iams. It comes in a variety of formulas, including performance diets for overworked dogs or cats, special vet-prescribed diets, and anything that may fall in between.

On the Eukanuba website, they boast that while Eukanuba ‘represents the ultimate in pet nutrition’, the Iams brand name represents the best premium food combination of ‘nutrition, palatability and price’. They also boast of foods containing the very highest quality ingredients, like the high protein sources of chicken and lamb.

Nutrient and ingredient levels vary greatly between the various formulas for both Eukanuba and Iams. In order to get your pet the best formula for his needs, you need to carefully compare the nutritional content listed on the information panel on the bag containing the food. You should review each bag’s panel to compare the amount of each ingredient included, like colorings and preservatives, and those that have no nutritional value, like animal digest. You should note that the fewer ingredients listed the better. Often, the primary ingredient is listed first, and ideally, it should be an animal protein rather than a by-product.

As required by standards, the food product should meet the minimum standards, and so the label should provide this information for public assurance that the standards have been met. Things like quantity of protein, moisture, fiber, fat, ash, calcium, and carbohydrates contained within the food should be clearly stated in their percentages. Typical Eukanuba formula ingredient listings will include chicken (listed as the main ingredient), chicken by-product meal, fish meal, chicken fat, brewers rice, ground whole grain, dried beet pulp (with sugar removed), sorghum, dried egg product and natural chicken flavor.

For Iams, a typical formula for cats will also list chicken as the number one ingredient, then followed by chicken by-product meal, chicken meal and salmon, and corn meal. It will also list minerals, vitamins, antioxidants and amino acids among the ingredients. Iams website also boasts of providing 100 percent well balanced and complete nutrition, by including natural proteins, grains, fruits and vegetables.

Eukanuba is the official brand name of the Procter and Gamble pet division, while Iams represents their best premium pet food nutrition.
