*Eagle Pack Large and Giant Breed Adult was selected as the recipe for this ingredient list
Eagle Pack is a long established pet food company that claims to make formulas with the perfect balance of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, antioxidants, and omega fatty acids. We agree that the formulas are well balanced, which is why we give Eagle Pack an above average rating. First of all, the Puppy, Adult, and Giant Breed formulas meet all of the AAFCO nutritional requirements. Each formula lists a protein like chicken meal or pork meal as the main ingredient, which contain essential amino acids that dogs need to function.
The grains consist of rice, oatmeal, and corn. Corn is a bit controversial as it does not contain many vital nutrients, and is often considered a filler ingredient. However, the formulas do contain vitamin and mineral supplements, so they do provide dogs with the necessary nutrients they need. Despite the addition of corn in the dry food, Eagle Pack still rates high as a nutritious and healthy dog food.
Dog owners and dogs alike seem to like Eagle Pack Dog Food. In particular, dog owners with large breeds seem to love the Giant Breed formulas. Many people claim their dogs will not eat other brands after switching to Eagle Pack. Others report healthy, shiny coats and eyes, clean teeth, and regular bowel movements. Some dogs even seem to have less smelly stools after switching to this product.
However, some dog owners do not like the addition of yellow corn in the dry food formulas. They believe that yellow corn is a cheap filler ingredient that provides no nutritional value to a dog’s diet. Some owners have also reported that their dogs suffer allergies to the beet pulp. The wet food seems to garner more positive reviews for its high protein content and vitamin and mineral supplements. If customer reviews are anything to go by, this is an above average dog food.
Eagle Pack dog food formulas used to be hailed as one of the best dog food formulas by many dog owners. The replacement of “filler” ingredients with real protein has long been cited as Eagle Pack’s selling point. Eagle Pack offers very high quality nutrition without using fillers or artificial preservatives. However, how nutritious is Eagle Pack, and is it right for your dog?
The company who makes Eagle Pack dog food is called WellPet, LLC. WellPet is actually a company that is made of Eagle Pack Pet Foods and Old Mother Hubbard. Right now, WellPet is a fully owned subsidiary of the Berwind Corporation, which also owns companies such as the National Pen Company and Elmer’s Glue. Aside from Eagle Pack dog food, WellPet also owns the Wellness, Holistix, Prism, Hy-Ration, Holistic Select and Other Mother Hubbard brands. The Eagle Pack Holistic Select brand of pet food was first launched in 2000.
As of right now, Eagle Pack dog food formulas are not involved in any pet food recalls, and are not listed on the FDA’s pet food recall list. It’s always recommended that you regularly check to make sure your dog’s food is not involved in any pet food recalls.
An interesting thing about the ingredients contained in Eagle Pack’s dog food formulas is their quality. For example, the plants in Eagle Pack dog food are herbicide-free. All of the meat that is used in Eagle Pack’s dog food formulas is free of antibiotics and artificial hormones. In many of the dry formulas, three of the first five ingredients are protein-based. However, there are some ingredients that may be viewed negatively by some dog owners, such as salt and ground yellow corn.
The main ingredient in Eagle Pack dog food that could potentially cause allergic reactions in some dogs is corn. For dogs with protein-specific allergies, it’s also important to note that chicken and beef are contained in many Eagle Pack dog food formulas.
