Our Nutritional Philosophy


A cornerstone of our nutritional philosophy is that cats and dogs evolved from carnivores and should be fed accordingly. That's why we use only high-quality animal proteins, mainly chicken or lamb – not vegetables – as the principal source of protein in Eukanuba food. Our contribution to nutritional science has helped millions of pets be the best they can be. Our nutritional range includes special veterinary prescription diets and tailored nutrition for life stage, breed size, sensitivities and activity levels. 

Eukanuba's knowledge and respect for the different nutritional needs of different breeds has led to partnerships with breeders and their key organizations.  We are “Partners of Excellence” with many European kennel federations including ‘The Kennel Club’.  Additionally, we are also working in partnership with several highly recognized and trusted canine organizations such as the Federation Cynologique Internationale (FCI) and the American Kennel Club (AKC).

At Eukanuba, our philosophy on nutrition has not wavered for 40 years: we feed cats and dogs how we believe nature intended them to eat.
