Frequently Asked Questions

What is the benefit of some of the formulas changes?

In our efforts to continuously improve digestion for your pets, we optimized fiber levels in our formulas by using more whole ingredients like chickpeas and reducing others like beet pulp to improve on our guarantee of small, firm stool.

Why did we remove the name of WHOLESOME ESSENTIALS?

We felt that since all the ingredients in each of our recipes are wholesome and essential to the benefits of the recipe, it was unnecessary to call it out on just one of our lineups.

Are the Lamb & Rice Recipes still Limited Ingredient Diet?

Yes. Our Limited Ingredient Diets are designed to help minimize food sensitivities by limiting the type of ingredients used to those not commonly associated with food sensitivities. There will still only be one novel animal protein in each pack – lamb and lamb meal. The Venison Meal, Whole Brown Rice & Oatmeal Recipe and Fish, Whole Brown Rice & Potato Recipe will also remain as Limited Ingredient Diet with only one novel animal protein source. Although some formulas have additional carbohydrate sources (e.g. chickpea and split pea), we are still limiting the type of ingredients to those that are not commonly associated with food sensitivities (i.e. we still do not have wheat or corn).

Does the new NUTRO™ dog food still have a skin and coat guarantee?

Yes, all dog formulas except the Lite Weight Loss products will still have a complete satisfaction or your money back guarantee to provide healthy skin and a soft, shiny coat.

What is the benefit of chickpeas and split peas in NUTRO™ Dog Food?

Chickpeas have an excellent balance of carbohydrates, protein, and fiber. Thus our formula can provide carbohydrates, protein, and fiber from a single, whole ingredient rather than fractionated ingredients that are high in only one nutrient.

What is the benefit of flaxseed in NUTRO™ Dog Food?

Flaxseed is used as a source of fiber, protein, and healthy oils. The soluble and insoluble fibers in flaxseed help us achieve better digestive health and stool quality in our formulas. Additionally, it contributes healthy oils, including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, like linoleic acid, which help fulfill essential nutrient requirements and promote skin and coat health.

What is the benefit of alfalfa meal in our formulas?

Alfalfa meal is used as a source of fiber in our High Protein Grain Free Recipes. The soluble and insoluble fibers in alfalfa meal help us achieve better digestive health and stool quality in our formulas. Additionally, alfalfa meal is used in Large Breed Weight Management and Lite Weight Loss products as a fiber source and to help minimize the caloric content.

Is there a formulation change on wet?

Yes. We have increased essential nutrients in our wet dog formulas so that feeding guidelines can be tailored to the energy needs of inactive dogs while still providing optimal nutrition and meeting essential nutrient requirements.

Why is natural pet food better?

We believe that natural pet food is healthier, safer and tastier.

Does NUTRO Brand Dog and Cat Food contain artificial preservatives?

No, our foods are naturally preserved with vitamin E. We never use chemicals like BHA, BHT, ethoxyquin, propyl gallate or sodium hexametaphosphate in NUTRO™ Natural Dog Food or Cat Food.

Where are NUTRO Products made?

We are proud that NUTRO Products are made in our own U.S. facilities. Our facilities are located in Victorville, Calif.; Lebanon, Tenn.; and North Sioux City, S.D. Our GREENIES Products are made in Kansas City, Mo.

How do you read the code dates on NUTRO Cans and Trays?

Due to technical advances in materials, the expiration dates for cans and trays produced after March 31, 2004 will be two years from the date of manufacture.

Here is an example of the coding: First Line: BEST BY MM DD YY Second Line: Contains manufacturing information (i.e., plant, line and time) MM = Month of Production DD = Day of Production YY = Year of Production + 2 Years For example, a can manufactured on May 31, 2011 would be coded: BEST BY 05 31 13 (MAY 31, 2013).

How do you read the code dates on NUTRO™ Biscuits and Treats?

The code can be found on the top flap of our biscuit and treat packages. This is the “Best by" code date format. It is the first line and will appear like the following example: Best by 04 AUG 13 92 1 First line: “Best by 04 AUG 13” means it’s best by August 4, 2013. “92 1” is the plant ID information. Second line: Contains manufacturing information, such as shift, line, time, etc.

How do you read the code dates on NUTRO Dry Food?

Our NUTRO Pet Food has a “Best by" code date stamped on the back of the package. It is the first line and will appear like the following example: Best by 24 APR 13 27 1 First line: “Best by 24 APR 13” means it’s best by April 24, 2013. “27 1” is the plant ID information. Second line: Contains manufacturing information, such as shift, line, time, etc.

How long has The Nutro Company been making natural pet food with added vitamins, minerals and other nutrients?

We have been in business since 1926!

One is located in Victorville, Calif.; another in Lebanon, Tenn; and the third facility is located in North Sioux City, S.D. Our GREENIES® Products are made in Kansas City, Mo.

  • Nutro max senior

    By on Top 100 Contributor

    I personally love this food because it satiates my overweight cat with nutritious ingredients and blood plasma which helps with her dehydration. My senior kitty " Sophy" loves this food except that is a pate and she likes bites. But this is a great food and I recommend highly.

  • Finicky Feline Loves It!

    By on

    I have an older cat, he is king, fellow cat owners will understand this, he has his way or no way, or things on tables tend to get broken when they hit the floor. I have never had him turn his nose up at Nutro Max Senior, Chicken and Lamb. He actually humbles himself by begging for it!! I highly recommend this product, two thumbs up!

  • Dryer than MaxCat's other flavors

    By on

    My cat hates this 'Senior' version of Chicken and Lamb yet gobbles up the regular 'adult' version. I saw some other comments saying it was softer and good for their older teeth, but the senior cans I got are actually a lot dryer/harder than the regular flavor. (Maybe I got a bad batch?) I have to stir water into this flavor to even get my cat to dare licking it. It was a waste of a case for me. Regular adult flavors seem better quality and my cat LOVES those, but the senior stuff.. not so much.

  • A very healthy choice

    I can see real veggies in there. My cats love it. It reasonably priced as well. My only criticism is that it's a bit on the dry side.

  • Nutro Max Senior canned food works for my dowager princess

    By on

    When Xena reached "senior" status my vet recommended providing her with cat food formulated for seniors. My vet and I agree that most cats do better on a diet composed primarily of wet food. Dry food is used as a treat. There weren't a lot of senior canned foods available and I was using the Friskies Senior varieties, but discovered the better ingredients of the Nutro Max Senior formula. Xena, who is now 14, enjoyed the flavor and it has become her mainstay. When Friskies discontinued its senior line of canned cat foods I was very glad for having already switched to the Nutro Max!

  • My cats LOVE this food

    By on

    I have 4 cats. None of them 'senior' but one of my kitties has a 4 food allergies. (Ugh!) Feeding separate foods would be a pain and since they're all within a year of the same age, I like feeding them the same thing. I feed them all wet food and only a few kibbles of dry as a treat, so this is their main food. From the very first day - the first can, even - they gobbled this up and licked their plates. On of our kitties, who never licked her plate clean before, goes around and checks the others' plates to see if there are any bits left. I don't know why some senior cats don't like it by my cats (all age 3-4) devour it as soon as I put it down.

  • So not appealing to my senior kittie

    By on

    We used to order Friskies senior lamb and rice, which was shredded bits with lots of gravy. LuckyCat LOVED it. Suddenly Chewy isn't carrying it anymore. So I looked for other similar senior products, ordered this. It's dry—even for a pate—and totally not attracting her nose. I've had to stir it up, add drops of water for gravy and garnish with a healthy spoonful of (humangrade) tuna. And even then she does me a favor. Aaarrggghhhhh

  • My cats do not like the texture

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    My cats eat some of this food, so it must taste good, but they never finish the whole serving, and I think that is because they dont like the texture. I do not plan to buy it again. My cats prefer "minced" cat food, so I will stick to that.
