  • Great dog food

    By on

    I've been feeding this to my German Shepherd for almost 5 years now. I love the ingredients that are in it and the added glucosamine. I've been feeding her Nutro food for almost her whole life, so 10 years. She loves the food.

  • Great dog food.

    By on

    I've been feeding my dogs this food for many years. The first 2 Weims had food allergies and skin problems. After using Nutro every thing cleared up. So I continued with this brand for my next 2 Weims. Chewy's has the best price I've found and it's delivered!

  • Great food!

    By on

    My pup is aging and I have always fed him Nutro. He loves this food and hopefully it will help his weight now that he's not as active. He sure likes it! If he's happy, I'm delighted.

  • A good alternative to more expensive Wellness

    By on

    My sons 2 boxers have been fed Nutro Large Breed for the past 6 or 7 years and they have done very well on it. Our goldens seemed to be getting bored with the Wellness Core so we decided to give Nutro a try and both dogs love it and so far seem to be doing well ... no extra itchiness, minor stomach adjustments. Plus Nutro is a little less expensive than Wellness. Both goldens have skin allergies and sensitive stomachs but they LOVE the taste of this Nutro.

  • Better than Blue!

    By on

    I switched from Nutro a few yrs back to Blue thinking it would be better for my aging Golden Retreiver. Boy was I wrong. He was sluggish and showing his age. Now he's back to his 'young' self! Coat is beautiful and stamina has picked back up!

    The shape of the food is easier for my senior dogs to eat! They haven't been as excited about their food until now!
