This Nutro Lamb & Rice Recipe Dog Food offers a premium taste your dog will enjoy while providing the necessary vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are crucial for a healthy metabolism. Each bite is infused with optimal levels of omega-6 fatty acid (linoleic), zinc and B vitamins to guarantee a soft coat that shines. Plus, your adult large breed dog will enjoy the added benefit of naturally sourced glucosamine and chondroitin for strong joints and cartilage to keep them moving. 

Key Benefits

  • Number-one ingredient is great-tasting grass-fed lamb, which delivers amino acids to build muscle and maintain a healthy metabolism. Give your dog all she needs to thrive and stay healthy.
  • By limiting the number of ingredients, this nutritionally complete formula helps promote optimal digestive health in dogs with sensitive stomachs.
  • Naturally sourced glucosamine and chondroitin, the nutritional building blocks of healthy cartilage, help maintain healthy joints. The right fiber balance from whole ingredients, such as brown rice and oatmeal, promotes an ideal digestive environment to help absorb available nutrients.
  • Made with absolutely no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. This is a high quality product that is produced in the manufacturer's own facilities to ensure safety and quality.
  • Nutro's dedicated team of experts tailor their formulas to your pet's life stage and health condition. They only use natural ingredients that they directly buy and can trace back to their suppliers.

  • Helped my dogs sensitive stomach

    By on

    My boyfriend and I got a very large dog a couple months ago and he had a very sensitive stomach - I'm talking insane digestive issues. We bounced back and forth between a couple of brands to get a feel for what would help him, but we didn't really see much improvement until I got a couple for the Nutro brand dog food and decided to give it a go, and to our surprise, the stuff actually worked! It's relatively cheap food and our Momo seems much happier and healthier on it, A+ for Nutro

    Absolutely thrilled that I tried chewy.com for my pups. Received my order in 2 days! It takes all the hassle of purchasing a 30 pound bag of food and carrying it to and from my car (not to mention sometimes my local store would be out of stock and I usually wait to the last minute!) Very thankful for the convenience and the lower price! :)

  • Dog loves it!

    By on

    I gave 4 stars instead of 5 stars, because the pellets are far to small. They look like rabbit pellets instead of dog kibble. That is my only complaint with this brand. I add a little water to make a gravy. Oliver loves the food and I love the ingredients. Dogs like something to bite into.

  • Nutro Yo!!

    By on

    I have a very picky eater that is a cane corso mastiff. She gobbles this food like I have never seen. Good ingredients makes me feel good. A bit pricey but sure must be good because all 5 dogs LOVE it

  • Great brand!

    By on

    This is a great brand!! Has helped my pupper with digestive problems (pancake poo and gas) I tried the chicken flavor and he loved it!! I thought I would try this lamb, but he's not finishing all his food, therefore will switch back to chicken flavor

  • Nutro is my brand of choice

    By on

    We adopted a lab, and she was being fed another brand that vets seem to like. I switched the dog to Nutro as soon as I could. I have given my dogs Nutro for 20 years and love it.

  • Nutro dog food.

    By on

    I love this dry dog food. Before buying Nutro, I used another high end product. I would be so frustrated with all the dry food that had turned to dust at the bottom of the bag. I tried Nutro and no more frustration! I get all the food that I am paying for now.

  • Best overall dog food.

    By on

    My dogs have been enjoying this dog food for years. It seems I rescue dogs with sensitive skin/allergies. This dog food has changes them into happy healthy playful dogs again. I wish I had found Chewy.com sooner. Love the auto ship.

  • Quality and convenience

    By on

    I have 4 large, high energy pit mixes (all rescued of course) that love this food. And they eat a lot, so Thebes's fact that it is in my doorstep every 2 weeks saves me the hassle of running to the store, plus I am able to add various bones, treats, and toys to my order is the best!!! I even can order food, litter, and toys for my rescued kitty too. And they all come like clockwork! Love love love Chewy!!!!

  • Delicious says Johnny

    By on

    Loves it twice a day, daily. He likes the flat pieces vs the round. Less choking for his inhalation of his food.
