Eukanuba Senior Maintenance Dog Food First Five Ingredients:

  1. Chicken By-Product Meal
  2. Corn Meal
  3. Ground Whole Grain Sorghum
  4. Ground Whole Grain Barley
  5. Fish Meal
Chicken By-Products are the first ingredient. This ingredient is impossible to determine the actual quality of. The AAFCO definition of chicken by-product meal is “a meal consisting of the ground, rendered, clean parts of the carcass of slaughtered chicken, such as necks, feet, undeveloped eggs and intestines, exclusive of feathers, except in such amounts as might occur unavoidable in good processing practice.”

Corn Meal is the second ingredient. Some believe that’s dog’s digestive systems have a hard time digesting this ingredient. Corn in excess has also been linked to many cases of dog allergies.

Sorghum, the third ingredient is of lower quality and is primarily a filler that offers an additional source of carbohydrates.

Barley is the fourth ingredient and is of decent quality.

Fish Meal is the fifth ingredient and is a named meat ingredient. A dog’s diet needs to based on the fact that dogs need meat and protein that derives from meat.
