  • Our Dobie loves it!

    By on

    We had to switch foods since Chewy wasn't carrying her food anymore....we tried Nutro and It was a hit! I first noticed that it actually smells like chicken when I opened the bag. Our pooch loves it. She eats this better than the food she was on. Also she hasn't experienced any tummy or pooping issues with the switch.

  • All Grown Up and Lovin My Grown Up Food

    By on

    I am 1 year old and my mom gets my Adult food from Chewy. It comes to my house in a big truck and we are all happy when it arrives. Nutro tastes so good and I can't wait for my next meal. Sometimes my mom gives me a small handful as a treat when I am good. It is so good.

  • Quality Food

    By on

    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

  • Our Nathan loves this stuff

    By on

    Nathan was a finicky eater and transitioned to many kibbles. When we got the puppy variation of this new bagged food, he suddenly loved it and looked forward to chow time. As we transition to this food, he is still eagerly eating the adult variety. When I asked the Chewy staff if the manufacturer changed the ingredients as well as the bag, they didn't know of it. There must be something they changed for Nathan to keep chowing down this food.

  • Be careful with your order

    By on

    The service was excellent and got the product within a couple days. Unfortuntely, I didn't notice that I ordered the regular variety and I wanted Lite. My mistake. I'll be more careful next time.

    I changed my labs food from taste of the west to nutro essentials and she went crazy over the new taste and made me as her owner very happy to see she can't get enough of this wholesome food. 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!

  • Perfect Health

    By on

    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.

  • great food

    By on Top 100 Contributor

    I really loved this food. Highly nutritious. Great price! I have 4 dogs who took to this food with a great liking after being on diamond brands for quite some time. No digestive upset during transition. They eat less and have less of the need to defecate and that is of well also. ( to put in nice terms). I highly recommend.

  • Not happy with the new food.

    By on

    I have fed Nutros Natural Choice for years and now with the new ingredients my Shepherds are not eating it and losing weight. Between my new dogs and my old ones we have been feeding this for over 18 years and now we are going to have to change brands. Gave all the food away to my neighbor.

  • 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!
