  • Nutro is an excellent product

    By on

    I have raised three dogs of various breeds to very old age, 17 to be exact. They are outdoor dogs. We now have a mini beagle and she is prone to weight gain. The first Nutro small breed food caused weight gain using the recommended dosage. We changed to the weight management formula and viola! She became svelt, active and has a very shiny coat. Our local farm store discontinued carrying Nutro. Because of that I turned to Chewy.com. The small breed weight management is doing the trick. I think I may need to get the medium size breed weight management formula as Molly beagle does not chew her food...she "hoovers" and has choked a number of times.

  • Awesome doggie sitter

    I was told that I needed to COOK CHICKEN and veggies for this small Yorkie because he WOULD NOT EAT any kind of dog food. He was super fussy! Well I received a bag of Nutro Small feed and the 1st ingredient was CHICKEN and sweet potatoes along with other nutritional ingredients. It sounded good enough for me to eat LOL Needless to say I fed this lil fussy dog and he ate it all without a second thought. He stayed full and happy too Wow was we all surprised including the owner!!! I was so happy he loved Nutro Small Breed. It's so healthy, it has NO GMO and the bites are just right for tiny mouths. The nutrition outweighs other dog foods and now we don't have to cook chicken and veggies because I was told that I needed to COOK CHICKEN and veggies for this small Yorkie because he WOULD NOT EAT any kind of dog food.

Thank you for making it easier to feed this dog and making him HAPPY and HEALTHY at the same time! … more

  • Great so far!

    By on

    I received this product for free from Nutro in exchange for my hoenst opinion. Today is the third day my two dogs (ages 1 and 2) have been eating this Nutro dog food and they are absolutely loving it! I was thrilled to receive the chicken, brown rice and sweet potato recipe as their stomachs only seem to handle chicken recipes. I barely was able to pour out the food as they were pushing their heads right into the bowl for it! Three days in and I can already see a change. Both of them are staying full much longer than brands I've used in the past. My only honest complaint (and it's minor) is that the smell isn't too appealing for adults. It smells exactly like hamster food and that's a smell I I received this product for free from Nutro in exchange for my hoenst opinion.

  • Great food

    By on

    I received a sample of chicken, brown rice, and sweet potato formula from Nutro and I am really happy with the ingredients in the food and the fact that the # 1 ingredient listed is chicken. I only feed my babies the best quality food and this brand has no by-products and no corn,soy, or wheat. The small bites make it easy for my 7 year old yorkie to eat since he is missing a few teeth. They get really excited when they see the peach colored bag and they have had no issues with a new food irritating their stomachs as some foods cause when I have switched in the past. I highly recommend this food to anyone that is particular on what they feed their fur babies.

  • Finicky Dog

    I really wanted my dog to like this food - she's so picky so anytime i try something new, i hope "this is it".. but this wasn't the case with Nutro Wholesome Essentials. I tried it several times, slowly mixing it in with her current food - even added chicken broth to it a few times and she didn't go near it. The colors on the packaging is nice - the sealable package is a good idea, but the bag is pretty tall so its kind of awkward to use the pourable feature. To be fair, my dog is extremely picky when it comes to dry food and gets bored very easily so i wasn't surprised that she didn't particularly care for this one. I can't say i don't recommend it for someone else's dog - mine just didn't I really wanted my dog to like this food - she's so picky so anytime i try something new, i hope "this is it".. but this wasn't the case with Nutro Wholesome Essentials.

  • Our new favorite brand!

    By on

    I recieved this item for free from the brand through a promotion. I was so excited when i recieved this in the mail, the bag has a built in ziploc ! It has natural ingredients and NO GMOs! My dogs are two Chihuahuas. Chico is 8 years old and his mom natti is 16 years old and they are the pickiest dogs(dog food will sit in the bowl wasted if they dont enjoy it). When i opened the bag they were both going nuts to get some so I put some in my hand and they gobbled it all up! So I poured some in the bowl and they devoured it! They love this product and it will be our new brand. Hurry to a pet store near you and pick some up, your fur babies will love you for it!

  • My dog liked it at first

    By on

    I received this item for free as a promotion from Nutro. My 9 pound yorkie really enjoyed this dog food at first. She ate a bowl the night I received the product and then another bowl the next day. After that, she refused to eat it anymore. Now I can only get her to eat very little of it when I mix it with her pedigree. I do enjoy the fact that chicken is the very first ingredient and the bag is resealable to keep the food fresh. I just wish my dog liked the flavor more.

  • Good quality, picky pup

    By on

    I received this product for free from Nutro, in exchange for an honest review. Loved that chicken is the 1st ingredient and the small bites made it easy for my chihuahua to eat. He's a picky eater and initially liked this food but seems to prefer his original brand. I'd have really liked to be able to switch to this and would recommend it, based on the ingredients. Overall, I think it's a good quality food, just not the one for my baby.

  • Nutro is "our" new dog food!

    By on

    I can't say enough positive about this Nutro product! Right down to the "ziplock closure"! Real chicken, brown rice and sweet potatoes and made with non GMO ingredients! I received the product from the manufacturer itself as a promotion and boy o boy my 15 yr old dog couldn't be happier about it! She usually never finishes her meal in one sitting and has a fit if I try to switch up her flavors/brands. Well needless to say after all I've explained she ate every single morsel sized bite and looked at me for more!

  • Great for small dogs

    By on

    My dogs really love their new food, as you can see they are gobbling it up. I, especially like that chicken is the first ingredient. The morsels are very small round pieces and are perfect for small dogs. We usually put their treats on the floor so i tried putting down alittle of the Nutro and they seemed to actually like the food more than their treats! I'm grateful that i found this food that they absolutely love (all of them) and its something that will keep them healthy.
