Eureka dog food is fantastic.
It’s also Australian Made AND Australian Owned.
In fact, I wish all Australian dog foods were as good as this as it would mean far less reliance on Australian vets.
Far too many of our dogs fall foul of all manner of diet-related illnesses like heart disease, renal disease, UTIs and kidney stones.
Most of the time we fail to realise the hard-baked nuggets of cheap grains preserved with chemicals might be the cause. Does this sum up the dry food you’re currently feeding your dog?
There are many reasons I think Eureka is a far better choice for your dog, so read on!
What the marketing says
I like to keep this section short in reviews, but could write a book with all the positive statements about this “100% carbon-neutral” dog food with ingredients sourced from “Australian businesses and farmers” and “sustainably caught wild Australian meat & organs”.
It speaks for itself.
Eureka is an air-dried dog food which is a far better, more digestible, more nutritious option than a kibble (I’m a big advocate for air dried dog foods).
A nice point to make is they use a “kill step” in the air-drying process which “eliminates pathogens”.
What that means to is we can feed this essentially “dried raw” food without any concerns about food safety and handling.
That’s great, especially if we have kids around or uneasy about preparing raw for our dogs.
The quality of Eureka makes it more than suitable for all life stages of dog, including puppies. With ease.
What the ingredients really say
At the time of writing their are three recipes available – Wild Boar & Chicken, Wild Kangaroo & Lamb, and Wild Venison & Lamb.
All are good, but we’ll focus on Wild Boar & Chicken for this review. Remember variety is always good, so you could rotate between all three.
All Eureka dog foods start with 90% meat, bone, and organs, which is fantastic for your meat-loving dog. Far better than corn don’t you think?
We find most of the recipe is what we should expect in a food for dogs, which is a combination of meat, liver, heart, lung, kidney, and also finely ground bone and cartilage.
Our dogs can’t be supremely healthy without these foods in their diet, and organ meats are the richest sources of nutrients.
In short, this is what our dogs are biologically designed to eat.
The remaining ingredients are equally fantastic, and serve to make Eureka so much better than pretty much every other dog food in Australia.
There are literally no bad ingredients.
Let’s take a quick look, but you’ll already know the benefits of these ingredients without any explanation…
Salmon oil is inclusion, rich in omega fatty acids for heart health, skin, coat, joint support, brain support, and a healthy immune system.
Green lipped mussels – a fantastic inclusion usually only found in top end New Zealand dog foods (like ZIWI Peak) – also good for many of the same reasons as salmon oil.
Free range eggs as the only ingredient in dog foods with a complete amino acid profile (so again, a fantastic inclusion).
We find ingredients to aid digestion, such as lecithin, apple fibre, and postbiotics which really set this dog food apart from others.
And that’s not all of it…!
Eureka dog food is excellent. Simply excellent.
I’ve even checked many consumer reviews, which again, are excellent.
Summary – should I feed my dog Eureka?
If you’re currently feeding a dry food, then I’m confident Eureka will offer your dog a better diet.
If you’ve been thinking of feeding raw but have concerns about all the complexities in getting it right (such as calcium to phosphorous ratios and all manner of percentage calculations), or you simply don’t have the time or inclination to chop up organs, then Eureka is an excellent alternative.
I realise this review is positively glowing, but if you’ve read how negative I am about most dog foods, then you’ll understand why I really think Eureka is a great option for your dog.
