I feed Royal Canin, and would never put it in the same quality bracket as Iams and Eukanuba.

Of the brands you named Royal Canin is the best. It's not in the same ball park as Wellness or even Canidae but it's better than Hills, Iams/Euk.
Good luck.

You can buy it online at:

This web site

They are the only one that I found who will ship to Ireland.

no offence guys , the only thing about the royal canin was he did not have any puppy food or i would have got it, they did have large breed puppy food but this was for adult dogs over 25kg, as she is a staffordshire bull bitch she will not get to that weight unless you guys think this will be ok, i do not want to feed her anything that is not going to agree with her, i got her eukanuba and she will not eat it well only in little nibbles, but i can tell she does not like it. i was not meaning to slag royal canin i was only meaning to say that i can not find any of the other foods such as wellness, canidae and ca natural. sorry if i offended anyone!!
cheers for replies

Many, if not most of the super premium foods do not offer "puppy" foods. They believe in feeding one food at different rates according to activity level, weight, etc. I would think the VAT plus shipping on the foods you mentioned would put the prices up in the stratosphere. Surely there are dog food mfg's in the EU that make high end products similar to Canidae, Solid Gold. If not, Royal Canin is a very acceptable choice.

With Royal Canin being based in France it's probably going to be your best bet. The others are better quality but shipping will cripple you. As far as I can see they don't offer their foods in europe at all.

You can feed an adult food without any problem, you can supplement with a little oil or fat as the dog is growing. When they hit the major growth spirts or are excessively active(summer) feed a little more. As a general rule most large breed puppy foods aren't worth the money.
