Nutro Wholesome Essentials Large Breed Adult Farm Raised Chicken, Brown Rice & Sweet Potato Recipe Dry Dog Food is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 139.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Don't like them changing my dog's food 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. Back to searching for a chicken only, no corn or strange things added dog food.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My dog hates it My German shepherd will only eat it mixed with wet food. Leaves most in the bowl. Not palatable at all. This food has a bad smell. I wouldnt recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NUTRITION AT IT'S BEST This is my dogs fav brand. He grew up eating it and now won't eat anything else. Chewy makes it SO easy to get what I need for him. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for our Goldens!! We've been feeding this food for about 2 years now. Our Goldens are 12 and 7 and look great! They have fantastic energy and coats look good. Stools are solid. Our youngest golden always had gland issues and since feeding this food, that problem has decreased tremendously! We have also been able to maintain a healthy weight for both them with this food. I convinced both my co-worker and boss to switch their dogs to Nutro and they have also been pleased with the health and look of their dogs. Great food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for a variety of breeds We have used the Nutro Large breed dog food for our dogs for more than a decade. We are very pleased with how our dogs have done with this food. The dog breeds that we have fed this to include yellow Labrador retriever, Newfoundland, beagle, and bull mastiff/boxer mix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dog food and best price. We had stopped using this brand because of availability in our area and rising cost. We are happy that chewy.com carries this brand. Our dog enjoys eating her food more than she did before.
