Nutro MAX Puppy Dry Dog Food is formulated to support the development of growing puppies using only the finest ingredients that can be traced back to their source — like real chicken protein from farm-raised chickens and whole grains. And because Nutro only uses the best ingredients, you'll never find any chicken by-product meal, corn, wheat or soy protein. They're committed to provide great tasting, natural nutrition so your dog will live a long, healthy life.

Key Benefits

  • Number-one ingredient is great-tasting, U.S.-farm-raised chicken, which delivers amino acids to build muscle and maintain a healthy metabolism. Give your dog all that she needs to thrive and stay healthy.
  • Precisely formulated with targeted levels of protein and fat to support the high energy levels of puppies. Whole grains are nutrient-dense foods that nourish a healthy digestive system for proper nutrient absorption
  • High-quality, natural ingredients to deliver balanced nutrition with proven visible health benefits. Formula is fortified with vitamins, minerals and trace nutrients to ensure your pup stays healthy.
  • Made with absolutely no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. This is a high quality product that is produced in the manufacture's own facilities to ensure safety and quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome food awesome company Great quality food at a great price. Both my dogs (10 weeks and 6 months) eat this food and have great muscle tone, super shiny coats, and no bad gas like they got when fed some other brands. It was delivered super quick. Overall great experience :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for stubborn pup I won't buy any other food for my 7 month old pup! He is very stubborn and would not touch half the food I was buying him. Ever since I started buying nutro max puppy food I haven't had a problem. The morsels are tiny enough for him to chew and he goes crazy at meal time. I've noticed an extreme different win his coat as well. Will not buy any other brand!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it ! Nutro Max Puppy Natural Chicken Meal & Rice Recipe Dry Dog Food is excellent . My 9 month old border collie loved it and the kibble is small so she doesn't have a problem chewing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very tasty Although I haven't tasted it myself it smells great coming out of the bag and my 5 dogs love it. I have 1 puppy and 4 older dogs. 2 of them are giant breeds and have food available at all times for small meals so I needed the same food for all and have temporarily switched to puppy. They have been on Authority but since that was not available here I tried this which is very comparable. They seem to like it more and have been doing well on it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Have loved and used Nutro Max for years, however-- Very upset with the recent changes. Nutro recently repackaged their product. Not surprising, lots of companies are giving you less product at the same price. i.e. 30 lb. bag is now 25 lb. What really upsets me is that I can no longer buy a large bag of Nutro Max Puppy. Now it only comes in 12 lb. bags. I just spent over $100.00 on 60 lbs. of puppy food that cost me $62.00 two months ago. Small bags might be ok for someone with 1 puppy but not when trying to feed a litter.
