Description

Limited ingredient diets for large breed dogs can help minimize food sensitivities, make digestion easier and ensure that your dog receives the natural nutrition they need. 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

  • finally found a food my boy loves!

    By on

    I've been having a difficult time finding a food my 1.5 yo goldendoodle likes and that doesn't bother his stomach - after fromm was discontinued from chewy, I looked into this nutro food and as soon as we opened the bag, his head was in there trying to gobble it up! Usually he picks at his food throughout the day, now he eats it right up, and we're still introducing it to him with his old food. Very happy with the ingredients, made in USA, and Charlie-approved!

  • I keep coming back to Nutro.

    I tried the grain-free, super premium band wagon. Too much protein, too much fat, too many calories for large, adult dogs. My Olde English Bulldogge was barely able to eat 2 cups a day of those kibbles because his weight would balloon. He was always hungry. With his severe chicken allergy, I was left with few choices. In over 20 years of owning 7 Dogue De Bordeaux (French Mastiffs), it was only Nutro Lamb and Rice that was super gentle on their sensitive stomachs and universally loved by all 7. So now my newest dog, the OEB, is 20 months old, diagnosed with moderate hip displaysia, and recovering from elbow dysplasia surgery. However, he has a medium activity level, not low - so the Nutro diet I tried the grain-free, super premium band wagon. Too much protein, too much fat, too many calories for large, adult dogs.

So now my newest dog, the OEB, is 20 months old, diagnosed with moderate hip displaysia, and recovering from elbow dysplasia surgery. However, he has a medium activity level, not low - so the Nutro diet food (Healthy Weight formula) was too few calories for him. Although it's a really great diet food I recommend to owners of chubby pups. I'm relieved to have my new dog on this moderate calorie kibble with increased glucosamine and chondroitin levels, and slightly lower (healthier) fat and protein levels. Too much of a good thing, is a bad thing, as I found out. This large breed formula is made for the typical 50+ lbs, moderately active family dog who is at risk of joint degeneration simply due to aging and size. Well done, Nutro! It is less common to have highly active large breed dogs that need more calories, as I see some complain about in the reviews of this food. But Nutro has Regular Lamb and Rice, and other higher calorie kibble to answer their more unique needs. The only thing that made me stray away from Nutro and to the super premium grain free was the same reason I can only give this great food 4 out of 5 stars - for almost $50 a bag, I would have hoped Nutro would have added some probiotics and just a little bit more Omega 3's to this product rather than relying so heavily on less healthy Omega 6's to give your dog a shiny coat. But all in all, still a wonderful food that now my OEB is gobbling up and doing well on. … more

  • Happy Dogs

    By on

    Service was swift and convenient. We live more than 100 miles from town [round trip] and shop for groceries once a month. Buying the dog food in town meant we would have to pack at least 6-8 bags of dog food which took up too much room in the car. [My sister has 3 dogs, and I have 4.] Having it delivered is FABULOUS!. Thank you!

  • LOVE CHEWY.COM!

    By on

    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.

  • This is great food.

    By on

    I have been feeding Nutro Lamb and Rice to my dogs for about 20 years. It is easily digestible, very nutritious and they like it. I found that the price from Chewy.com and their speedy delivery right to my front door to be quite desirable.

  • offered the pup a choice. She choose NUTRO

    By on

    I have had an older dog on Nutro lamb and rice for years. Recently brought home a new pup. She was on a different food. I purchased both the food she was on and Puppy Lamb and Rice. Paws down, she wanted the Nutro.

  • Love this dog food!

    By on

    My dog has suffered with yeast infections for years. I finally bought this dog food and he hasn't had an infection this year. He also has a very sensitive stomach and after using this dog food, hasn't thrown up.
