Dogs between the ages of 6 months and 2 years old might look full-grown, but they still need nutrients for development — without the extra calories that lead to early weight gain. Nutro Wholesome Essentials Young Adult Dog Food ensures dogs get the natural nutrition they need for proper development of the brain and nervous system and strong, healthy bones.

Key Benefits

  • Number-one ingredient is great-tasting, U.S.-farm-raised chicken, which delivers amino acids to build muscle and maintain a healthy metabolism. Give your dog all that she needs to thrive and stay healthy.
  • Offers the balanced calorie and nutrient density - without added calories that might lead to early weight gain. The natural DHA in fish oil is essential for healthy growth and development of the brain and nervous system of developing young dogs.
  • Exclusive Smart Step formula offers the balanced calorie and nutrient density needed by developing young adult dogs to deliver optimal nutrition. Natural DHA in fish oil is essential for healthy growth and development of the brain and nervous system of developing young dogs.
  • Made with absolutely no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. This is a high quality product that is produced in the manufacture's own facilities to ensure safety and quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy switch from puppy to young adult My 1 year old Golden Doodle made an easy switch to the young adult food....she is definitely a Nutro Chicken lover. January 12, 2017
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good brand have used it for years for my pets My dashound Molly does not care for this dogfood, I am going to switch her back to the nutro small dog brand. I have no idea why she doesn't care for it, she has always had the Nitro brand November 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nutro is a brand I trust. I'm very glad Nutro makes a food for that in between age. I've trusted Nutro for many years for my dogs. November 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Brand I Trust We've been feeding our furbabies Nutro for nearly 16yrs, and have never had any issues, nor ever had a recall on any item from this company! It provides the nutrition our large and small dogs need, and makes their waste easily manageable! I don't know a reason worth ever changing. July 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Pup Loves It From the first bowl and now 2 months later, My 10 month old pup loves this food. Usually I think most owners go through a couple of brands before they are able to find the one their pet loves. So far, Macie is loving every bowl she gets. March 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by nutro for my pug! i give my 1 yr old pug this food and he loves it! great quality great prices! love chewy.com March 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product. In the process of switching our year old goldendoodle from the same puppy formula to the young adult food. It has been an easy change and she seems to really like the somewhat larger pieces and "new" aroma. January 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Affordable and Healthy My dog just completed her first year (wooo!) and I had switched to an adult food that made her stomach really unhappy. I moved her to this and her stool was almost instantly solid again and she loves it! I also love that this doesn't shatter my bank. September 9, 2014
