  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Great for our Goldens!!

    By on

    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!

  • Why did they change the ingredients!!!!

    By on

    My dog really liked the original formula. I'm not sure how he will respond to the new formula. He doesn't like Lamb and i see lamb as on of the new ingredients. Along with sweet potatoes and blueberries. I have tried food with these ingredients before and he didn't care for the food. I had to donate it to my local animal shelter. i tried FROMM and Taste of the wild which had similar ingredients to this revised formula. He hated it!!! What am i going to do now.
