Thread: eukanuba vs hills science diet

  1. #1

    Default eukanuba vs hills science diet

    which is better and why? my pup is on science diet right now, both foods are stupid expensive and it would be nice if someone knows a cheaper better alternative. had a bag a royal canin, pup loved it as far as dry foods go, can't afford it because of the price, and is it a good thing to try out different foods regularly or should i be sticking to one?

    Try blackhawk... Best ingredients by far compared to other 'super premium' foods and I usually pick up a 20kg bag for $80-100 (it lasts about 3 months with 2 dogs because better ingredients = less fed). Nutro is probably my second choice but it's a bit more expensive

    I used to feed eukanuba because thats what my breeder was using. But after watching a really disturbing video on how they test their foods on dogs i just couldnt bring myself to buy it anymore. It was truly shocking stuff and it takes a hell of a lot to shock me.

    Heres a link to the video if you want to see it.

    I didn't realise its actually a PETA video ..... a organisation i hate with a passion.... so make of it what you will. But i found it bad enought to sway me from buying anything made by eukanuba. I wont put it up as a video, jut a link , a you'll have to sign in to you tube just to watch it. I've been addicted to you tube for years now and never came across a video so full on that even you tube make you sign in to view it.

    'goggles' - Weren't you feeding your dog on BARF at one stage ? Why did you stop that ?

    Maybe have a good look around this link:

    Natural Diet Choices

    There are also a heap of threads on this forum on feeding pups. Have you had a look through those ?

    Riley is on this dry food at present. It works out at about $5/kg for 3kg or $4/kg for 7kg. He doesn't just get dry - but also tuna, sardines, salmon, mackerel, chicken and some beef - and their bones plus vegetables. Not all at once - but a variety with his dry food. Sometimes he may just get a chicken carcass and no dry. His 3kg of dry food would last him on average 2 weeks.

    Natures Goodness Grainfree+ - V.I.P. Petfoods.

    Happy researching !

    barf is way too expensive.

    Do you have any good butchers near you ? I have a couple that I can buy in bulk from - so there are savings there. I buy heaps of stuff on special. As far as cuts of meat - pups do not need top end priced steak - though I am sure they would enjoy it !

    Also Leonards are good for chicken carcasses - or again a butcher.

    There are heaps of ways to feed a pup well that doesn't cost a lot of money. You have to work out what you are prepared to spend per meal/week - and then work from there.

    Did you have a look at the Vets All Natural link ?

    But really what your pup does well on - is what you need to feed your pup on. For all of us on here - it has been a case of trial and error over the years !

    Good Luck !

    I suspect barf is cheaper than what I feed now

    combination of home made casserole and black hawk.

    You can get some cheap working dog food like bonnie from stock feed places too.

    Just read the ingredient list
    you're looking for protein first - and good quality. And not too much wheat, or corn meal or other cereal filler.

    I was given a bag of Hills puppy food not long ago, and I mixed some in with my pup's food each time (so not a complete change over). It gave them the runs.

    They are much better on Supercoat, or on Advance (although I can't afford to feed that all the time!).

    I wouldn't feed BH if I was paid to - but that's just me.
