  • Great for Chicken and other Allergies

    By on

    My American bulldog is 6 months old and we have just finished our first bag of this food. We LOVE IT!!! He has several food allergies. Chicken, Salmon, and barley are the allergies that we know of. This is an amazing food. He had lost patches of patches of hair due to the chicken allergy and it is now growing back. No more dandruff, runny nose, or itchy skin !!!! And it is Gluten free !!! The rice and oatmeal are so mild it does not bother his system. So many dog foods use chicken meal as filler : ( !!! I almost gave up and made homemade dog food before I found this !!!!! Thank you !!!

  • Prompt service.

    By on

    I have used this product for over 8 yrs. Just recently used Chewy for delivery and they were very prompt. I was a little skeptical about ordering it because the packaging had changed but the info said it was the same product and it was. I put it on auto ship. We will see how that is. So far very pleased with Chewy.

  • This product is good for dogs to have bowel and bladder problems. It is all natural.

    By on

    My dog has issues with her bladder and I switched her from store-bought food to this and we have not had any other problems. I have also put my three other dogs on the same food because I figured it could be prevented measures. All four of my dogs enjoy this food and seem a lot happier and healthier.

  • Works Well for Sensitive Stomachs

    By on

    We've used this particular Nutro formulation for a few years now and have seen marked improvement in our 11-year old Jindo's digestion. He rarely throws up anymore, which is a big plus! We are very pleased with the price of this product through Chewy and the speedy delivery. We would highly recommend this site.

  • All four pups LOVE it!!

    By on

    I have always fed Nutro products over the last 23 years! I've had German Shepherds, Lab/Border Collies, and have now Papillons and Chihuahuas and I've fed them all NUTRO products. Lamb and Rice, Fish and Potato and Chicken small bites and now the Venison Rice and Oatmeal... I currently buy three varieties for them to eat and my dogs love it all including this new Venison Rice and Oatmeal. I also buy Nutro treats! Nutro makes a great product... their coats and health has always been great and I think a good food contributes to that! I'm a happy and sold for life Nutro customer!

    By on Top 50 Contributor

    I have 4 dogs that need variety. I top with a dehydrated food for extra flavor but this mixed with the salmon version by Nutro is a good mix.

  • Great product so far!

    By on

    My lab mix has been having trouble with his stools and I couldn't seem to find a food that worked for him and his sensitive belly. It would always take him awhile to eat an entire serving, which seemed odd for a dog of his size. I consulted with a customer service representative about my dog and they suggested this specific Nutro product and I must say, my boy has been loving it! My 3 year old pup has been eating this for about a month and his stools are finally regular. Not to mention he devours his food now! Thanks Chewy for the wonderful suggestion! Copper and I are very happy!

  • My Great Danes Absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!!!

    By on

    Favorite Food!!! It gives them energy as I'd they are back in the wild. It helps skin, and coat. And most of all its healthy food it doesn't out my Danes over weight, nor does it make them sick, or have skin irritation.
