    DefaultEukanuba Labrador Retriever Formula - Anyone try this?

    I just got this coupon in the mail from Eukanuba for my Samson to try their new Labrador Retriever Formula. Has anyone tried this yet? I'm curious if it's any good. ???

    Dude that is so weird! Looks like so far they only have "breed specific" foods for a few dogs. Wonder how they decided which breeds to make foods for first. Looks like they have: lab, boxer, german shepard, dauchsand, and yorkie.

    I don't know, maybe it's based on the popularity of the breed? I was very surprised when I got the coupon flyer and the bag in the picture said "Labrador Retriever Forumla".

    That is so odd! I wonder if its any good. Is there a way to see how much grain it contains? I'm new to dogs so I'm still learning what foods are good and which aren't.

    Well, I emailed Eukanuba to get a list of the ingredients in this forumla. I also called around locally and only Petsmart carries it here. $38.99/36lb! Even the clerk on the phone thought it was odd it was breed specific.

    I Don't like the value of fat/protiens. In the past my dogs have done well on the Royal Canin Lab 30 and now do well on the Proplan 26/17 Chick/rice.

    Ya know, I really hate to say it because I like Iams/Eukanuba as a company, but the new Lab food is a bit of a gimmick. It's the same ingredients and GA (Guaranteed Analysis) as the Large Breed Adult. The only difference is the Lab formula has Zinc and Copper- what they do is beyond me.

    Just my 2c.

    I did notice that it looked pretty much the same as the other "breed specific" formulas. Just a few ingredients are diff.

    I'm not really a fan of breed specific foods. I think they are a marketing scam.

    If you want my opinion, you can get much healthier canned foods. Innova and Eagle Pack Holistic make excellent canned food.

    Aren't those the same breed specific foods that Royal Canin had and didn't Eukanuba buy Royal Canin? If so, that my explain why they have those formulas - they probably just shifted the idea over to their Eukanuba line.
