    I've been feeding my Great Danes Science Diet since they were puppies. After watching a dog food documentary, I decided to change to a different, higher quality dog food. I tried 4 different foods in about a month and a half span, and my dogs stools ranged from explosive diarrhea to cow patties. For the record, on the first new food, I did slowly ween them off the old stuff and slowly increased the new food. Anyhow, after much frustration, I read more reviews and decided that I'd order a bag of this food. This was going to be my last try before resorting back to Science Diet. I received the food on Saturday and my dogs love the taste. Not only that, but their stools hardened the SAME DAY and I've been feeding my Great Danes Science Diet since they were puppies.

It has been such a relief to find a high quality dog food that my dogs actually enjoy eating! Also, in the case that other Science Diet customers are reading this, I wanted to say that my oldest dog, since he was a puppy, would throw up food at least once every 1-2 weeks. Since taking him off of Science Diet, he has not thrown up once. … more

Thank you Chewy for the every 4 week delivery it also has simplified my life I don't have to carry a 30 lb. bag up the stairs anymore. I'm 66 yrs old and have a bad back so we're both elated about your service!

  • This is amazing!

    By on

    I think this dog food is phenomenal! It's perfect small little pieces for my dog to chew and he absolutely loves it! It's also a plus that this helps regulate my dog's weight. His favorite foods are chicken and sweet potato so knowing those are in this food makes me and my dog very happy. The ingredients list also doesn't make me cringe to look at, there's a lot of natural things listed. I've also noticed my dog using the bathroom more regularly since eating this food, it definitely helps with his digestion. I absolutely will be purchasing again!

    I have been using Nutro since my 3 yr. old American Yellow Lab was a puppy. She is full of energy, beautiful coat and has spotless teeth. Just 4 cups per day and her weight is steady at 75 lbs. The vet always comments on what a joy it is to see a lab that is not overweight.

  • Don't like them changing my dog's food

    By on

    We have been long time feeders of Nutro Natural Choice because our old dog had allergies, and Nutro's simple ingredients were perfect for her. Our current dogs have a few food sensitivities too. We tried other brands with the new fad of putting lots of fruits and vegetables in their formulas, but our dog did not digest those well. We gladly went back to Nutro. Well it looks like Nutro has jumped on the band wagon. We don't want sweet potato and blueberries in our dogs' food. And we certainly don't want lamb in our chicken based dog food! One source of meat only please! It stinks that I can't rely on my trusted brand any more.

  • Less poop!

    By on

    I've read the accolades on this food but more importantly I have two large breed dogs and I was really interested to see if the claims of less waste was true and I can tell you my 16 year old who is in charge of picking up poop in the backyard says it is true!
