In order to provide age and size appropriate nutrition for every dog, the EUKANUBA main assortment is specified accordingly. The first step is to select the phase of life your dog is in, i.e. puppy, junior (only large breed dogs), adult dog, mature or senior dog. In a second step, we also differentiate our foods according to the size of the dog into small, medium and large breeds. Furthermore, the various flavours ensure variety in your dog's diet. Due to this feeding concept, the EUKANUBA main assortment includes an ample selection of tailored food products.

The Puppy food has a higher energy density, the Junior food contains an adapted calcium and phosphorus level for healthy bone development of junior dogs of large breeds.

EUKANUBA dry food for mature dogs is recommended for small dogs at an age between 8 and 11 year, for medium sized breeds aged 7 to 10 years and for large dogs which are between 6 and 9 years old. The selected ingredients provide tailored nutrition to support your mature dog's healthy aging.

EUKANUBA dry food Senior is the tailored nutrition to boost your senior dog’s optimal body condition and active mobility. The adapted protein and fat levels support healthy body weight and maintaining lean muscles. The carefully selected ingredients support healthy joints as well as healthy digestion of older dogs. It depends on the breed size when your dog has reached the senior life stage, small dogs from 11 years on, medium sized breeds aged from 10 years on and large breeds older than 9 years.
