    There are some Eukanuba foods that do contain wheat, but from my understanding the LB Puppy food does not. On their website it analyzes each ingredient. This is from the Eukanuba website: http://us.eukanuba.com/eukanuba/en_U...alphaChr=W#131

    Wheat (carbohydrate)
    Wheat flour is another high-quality carbohydrate source that is used in Iams biscuits and in our European dry dog foods. In Iams biscuits, wheat serves as an excellent, palatable carbohydrate source and also adds a firm texture to the biscuit during the baking process.

    Barley and Whole Grain sorghum are related to wheat in that their both highly glutenous, but they aren't the same thing. Just because a dog has problems with one in no way means it will have problems with the other. But to answer your question, no, there is no wheat in the ingredient list you provided.

    Nope, no wheat in there...but there are a few ingredients I don't like....

    Chicken By-Product Meal
    Corn Meal

    But not all people are as anti-"by products" and "corn" as I am.
