Description

The Nutro Wholesome Essentials Small Breed Adult Farm-Raised Chicken, Brown Rice & Sweet Potato Recipe Dry Dog Food is just plain good for your dog’s health. With farm-raised chicken as the first ingredient, this recipe serves up the necessary ingredients for a complete and balanced meal, including plenty of nutrients and flavor. It also helps promote healthy skin and a soft coat with fatty acids, and it’s made with non-GMO ingredients—absolutely no by-products, corn, wheat, soy protein, or artificial flavors allowed. And with natural fiber for healthy digestion and essential antioxidants for immunity, it’s food that you’ll love feeding your dog as much as he loves eating it.

  • Dietary issue

    By on

    If you are buying the new formulation new April 2017, buyer beware if your dog has any dietary issues. They added lentils and lamb, and removed some ingredients as well. So it is a significant change not a slight change as suggested. One of my dogs has dietary sensitivities and this food was great for her, now we will be in search of a new food.

  • They love it

    By on

    The size of the dry dog food is perfect for my two small dogs. One of which is 13 years old and we rescued her from a puppy mill when she was 4 and already had bad teeth so it was important for me to find her something she could easily chew when it was mixed with the wet food. Works like a charm and both dogs love it

    My chow was going through a spell of nothing was good enough to eat. After trying 12 different brands she decided that this nutro essentials was it. For now anyway. she ate the lamb but really liked the chicken the best.

  • I loved everything about dealing with Chewy.com

    By on

    I found the prices at Chewy.com to be the best. Also when I have ordered from other sites, the cans were very often dented. The packing from Chewy takes extra care to insure the integrity of their products. I will only order all my pet needs from them!

  • Great packaging and product

    By on

    Switched from Nutro small breed puppy to adult and had no problems with the food. Because I had a lot of the puppy I still interchange them without the gradual process which makes me think they are just the same formula.

  • Licked the bowl clean

    By on

    Our senior (previously picky) eaters LOVE this food. They eat it dry or with water added and literally lick the bowl clean. The nuggets are small and perfect with senior dogs with chewing issues.

  • Excellent dry food

    By on

    My two dogs (Yorkie and Maltese) love this food. I always have 2 bowls of different choices and most of the time this bowl empties first. The "kibbles" are tiny (about the size of an eraser on a pencil) so it is perfect for my little ones teeth. Easy digestible as no bowel problems whatsoever with this brand. A bag lasts a long time. Chewy ALWAYS delivers on time and ALWAYS in perfect condition, (No torn bags). Chewy is a wonderful company to deal with and they guarantee everything so you can't go wrong with them.

  • Perfect for small adult breed

    By on

    My 10 yr. old miniature Schnauzer really likes the small, easy to chew pellets. I ordered a 15 lb. bag & it would be very helpful if the bag had a zipper closing to keep the food fresh AND if the bag falls over, so the food will not spread all over the floor. I poured all this food into a previously used dog food of a different brand which does have a zipper closing at the top but know the bag will not last long. Have the designers considered adding a zipper?

  • Amazing change

    By on

    I have a 2 year old yorkie. She has always had problems with her skin being dry, and itches like crazy. The vet told me she is allergic to fleas, I would have settled for that answer but she never has fleas. I did my own research, and decided to switch to grain free Nutro. The itching stopped within a couple of weeks. I am so happy!
