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!

Where is The Nutro Company located?

Our headquarters is located in Franklin, Tenn., just outside of Nashville. We have three manufacturing facilities for NUTRO™ Products. 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 Chicken & Rice Dinner Canned Dog Food

    By on

    Our two pups 13 & 14 yr's old did not like the food due to it's consistency and flavor though they are picky. Sunshine simply pushed it away and Tigon looked at it and usually she is the one who eats anything. Tried phasing it in with their old food but no luck. They are still active and usually will eat almost any wet or dry food offered. They are two grumpy shelter pup's that we got when they were 8 weeks old so I guess I'll keep trying to suit them and their needs as they age gracefully age.

  • Dog refuses to eat it!

    By on

    Good price, rapid delivery, amazing customer service and quality product....unfortunately my persnickity chihuahua just refuses to eat it. Seemed like a good option for a senior chow hound to control her weight, but she won't touch it. I'll donate it and keep searching for something to please her picky little palate. Three stars simply because I can't honestly rate it.

  • Texture is bad, like glue

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    The dogs seem to like it, but the texture is like glue! I even have to scrape the lid of the can. It looks gross to me, and there are other brands that are much better at the same price. Chicken soup is the best for the price, in my opinion. I have to choose non-premium foods because the fat & protein levels are too high in the premium brands for my pancreatitis-prone dog. Of course, I order ALL my foods from Chewy!

  • The Best we've tried

    By on

    My picky senior poodle was low energy and barely touched her food. She was also frequently constipated. I switched her to the Nutro Max Senior canned food and she perked right up, eats every drop and has so much energy you would swear she is a puppy again. She no longer has constipation either. I highly recommend this brand of dog food.

  • Great product

    By on

    I buy a lot of Nutro products for 10-year-old German Shepherd and am never disappointed. She loves this food, I mix it in with dry food to make it more enticing for her. She only likes the ground or loaf wet food, so is kinda picky, but this one was a winner. I like the ingredients that it has.

  • Excellent for giving pills

    By on

    I use this to hide the senior dog's pills and the consistency is perfect. She loves them and swallows the pill filled meatballs right down. The cat likes the food too...straight from the can only:)

  • He loves it!

    By on

    We have recently started fostering a little 15 year old cocka poo for our local shelter. I knew he needed a senior food and saw this one. He really likes it and dives right into his bowl!

  • Nutro max

    By on

    I initially bought this brand because it was priced below the others. I have a 16 yr old Pomeranian with 2 teeth left. I needed can food that was all mixed up because she was picking the peas and rice out and leaving it on the rug because she didn't like them. But she will eat this food because it is all mushed up. She seems to like it ok, not love love it. But she is old. I would recommend it, if you are looking for a good quality food that is all mixed together. Not a strong smell either.
