I am an owner of labrador retrievers and I have been buying the dry Eukanuba for over ten years. I have continued to use Eukanuba because my dogs like it and I trust the brand. When they are eating Eukanuba they are getting their basic nutritional needs. I started my dogs off as puppies on the Eukanuba that is specifically for puppies and slowly upgraded them as they got older. I have noticed that they seem to prefer the puppy food because it comes in a smaller bite size. I did have some problems with the Eukanuba with my first lab because his ears were often infected from allergies. My vet told me that ear infections are often related to food allergies. If this is a problem with your dog Eukanuba may not be the best choice. Their are other brands that are easier on their allergies. I would reccommend Eukanuba because it is decently priced and I think it is of a better quality than other dog foods in that price range.
