NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The EUKANUBA™ brand is launching a new marketing campaign to showcase the brand's dedication to providing the most astounding life for dogs. The fully integrated campaign, which launches today, includes new television and print advertising, a redesigned website and updated product packaging.

The campaign, as well as the brand's dedication to healthier, longer lives for dogs, is fueled by the EUKANUBA™ brand's Long Life Study which was conducted over a 10-year span with dozens of Labrador Retrievers. Ninety percent of the dogs in the study lived beyond 12 years, the typical lifespan of a Labrador Retriever. Even more astonishing is that 28 percent of participating dogs lived exceptionally long lives, meaning at least 30 percent longer than their typical lifespan. This includes five of the dogs highlighted in the new advertising - Utah (at age 17), Iowa (at age 17), Georgia (at age 17), Bunny (at age 16) and Clown (at age 16).

"At EUKANUBA™, we're dedicated to assuring the highest quality of nutrition to help dogs lead their most astounding lives," said Javi Neves, EUKANUBA™ Brand Director. "Every ingredient in our food has a specific purpose to promote health and vitality to help ensure the dogs that we feed look and feel their best at every age."

The Long Life Study was established to better understand how to help dogs lead healthier, longer lives. Dogs in the 10-year study were given proper care and the EUKANUBA™ brand's precise formulation of scientifically proven ingredients and were observed living beyond their typical lifespan. 

The study was conducted by a team of leading industry researchers including leaders in the study of animal nutrition, immunology, digestive health, aging and more. The EUKANUBA™ brand followed the lives of Labrador Retrievers in order to better understand how dogs achieve healthy longevity and how nutrition can affect dogs' vitality and longevity. The study findings were reviewed and supported by a distinguished external panel of global experts, including veterinarians, nutritionists, and scientists.
