  • 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 !!!

  • Only food that works for my doodles

    By on

    This is the only food that my golden doodles tolerate with no problems. This was out of stock for a while and so I tried the lamb and they were a MESS. Thankfully this came back! Hard to swallow the price but totally worth the dogs digestive health.

  • My dog is eating and feeling better with this food.

    By on

    This dog food is really loved by my pet. I put down his bowl and he goes over and eats it until it is gone. This is very different from his old food. I just about had to bribe him to eat the old stuff.

    My boy is usually pretty picky & tires of food easily. So fay 2 weeks in & I'm still not doctoring it to make him eat. That's pretty fab in my book.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Nutro Dog Chow

    By on

    I love Nutro products for my dog. He seems to like it too. It seems nutritional. I don't like ordering on line because I can't judge sizes very well and I wanted the small bag and ordered the large bag. My dog loves Nutro snacks too.
