Key Benefits

  • Three lean animal proteins from farm-raised chicken, pasture-fed lamb and salmon provide unique and complementary Amino Acids that work together to promote strong, lean muscles. Precisely formulated with targeted levels of protein and fat to support the high energy levels of large breed puppies. Whole grains are nutrient-dense foods that nourish a healthy digestive system for proper nutrient absorption.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the benefit of some of the formulas changes?

In our efforts to continuously improve digestion for your pets, we optimized fiber levels in our formulas by using more whole ingredients like chickpeas and reducing others like beet pulp to improve on our guarantee of small, firm stool.

Why did we remove the name of WHOLESOME ESSENTIALS?

We felt that since all the ingredients in each of our recipes are wholesome and essential to the benefits of the recipe, it was unnecessary to call it out on just one of our lineups.

Are the Lamb & Rice Recipes still Limited Ingredient Diet?

Yes. Our Limited Ingredient Diets are designed to help minimize food sensitivities by limiting the type of ingredients used to those not commonly associated with food sensitivities. There will still only be one novel animal protein in each pack – lamb and lamb meal. The Venison Meal, Whole Brown Rice & Oatmeal Recipe and Fish, Whole Brown Rice & Potato Recipe will also remain as Limited Ingredient Diet with only one novel animal protein source. Although some formulas have additional carbohydrate sources (e.g. chickpea and split pea), we are still limiting the type of ingredients to those that are not commonly associated with food sensitivities (i.e. we still do not have wheat or corn).

Does the new NUTRO™ dog food still have a skin and coat guarantee?

Yes, all dog formulas except the Lite Weight Loss products will still have a complete satisfaction or your money back guarantee to provide healthy skin and a soft, shiny coat.

What is the benefit of chickpeas and split peas in NUTRO™ Dog Food?

Chickpeas have an excellent balance of carbohydrates, protein, and fiber. Thus our formula can provide carbohydrates, protein, and fiber from a single, whole ingredient rather than fractionated ingredients that are high in only one nutrient.

What is the benefit of flaxseed in NUTRO™ Dog Food?

Flaxseed is used as a source of fiber, protein, and healthy oils. The soluble and insoluble fibers in flaxseed help us achieve better digestive health and stool quality in our formulas. Additionally, it contributes healthy oils, including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, like linoleic acid, which help fulfill essential nutrient requirements and promote skin and coat health.

What is the benefit of alfalfa meal in our formulas?

Alfalfa meal is used as a source of fiber in our High Protein Grain Free Recipes. The soluble and insoluble fibers in alfalfa meal help us achieve better digestive health and stool quality in our formulas. Additionally, alfalfa meal is used in Large Breed Weight Management and Lite Weight Loss products as a fiber source and to help minimize the caloric content.

Is there a formulation change on wet?

Yes. We have increased essential nutrients in our wet dog formulas so that feeding guidelines can be tailored to the energy needs of inactive dogs while still providing optimal nutrition and meeting essential nutrient requirements.

Why is natural pet food better?

We believe that natural pet food is healthier, safer and tastier.

Does NUTRO Brand Dog and Cat Food contain artificial preservatives?

No, our foods are naturally preserved with vitamin E. We never use chemicals like BHA, BHT, ethoxyquin, propyl gallate or sodium hexametaphosphate in NUTRO™ Natural Dog Food or Cat Food.

Where are NUTRO Products made?

We are proud that NUTRO Products are made in our own U.S. facilities. Our facilities are located in Victorville, Calif.; Lebanon, Tenn.; and North Sioux City, S.D. Our GREENIES Products are made in Kansas City, Mo.

How do you read the code dates on NUTRO Cans and Trays?

Due to technical advances in materials, the expiration dates for cans and trays produced after March 31, 2004 will be two years from the date of manufacture.

Here is an example of the coding: First Line: BEST BY MM DD YY Second Line: Contains manufacturing information (i.e., plant, line and time) MM = Month of Production DD = Day of Production YY = Year of Production + 2 Years For example, a can manufactured on May 31, 2011 would be coded: BEST BY 05 31 13 (MAY 31, 2013).

How do you read the code dates on NUTRO™ Biscuits and Treats?

The code can be found on the top flap of our biscuit and treat packages. This is the “Best by" code date format. It is the first line and will appear like the following example: Best by 04 AUG 13 92 1 First line: “Best by 04 AUG 13” means it’s best by August 4, 2013. “92 1” is the plant ID information. Second line: Contains manufacturing information, such as shift, line, time, etc.

How do you read the code dates on NUTRO Dry Food?

Our NUTRO Pet Food has a “Best by" code date stamped on the back of the package. It is the first line and will appear like the following example: Best by 24 APR 13 27 1 First line: “Best by 24 APR 13” means it’s best by April 24, 2013. “27 1” is the plant ID information. Second line: Contains manufacturing information, such as shift, line, time, etc.

How long has The Nutro Company been making natural pet food with added vitamins, minerals and other nutrients?

We have been in business since 1926!

Where is The Nutro Company located?

Our headquarters is located in Franklin, Tenn., just outside of Nashville. We have three manufacturing facilities for NUTRO™ Products. One is located in Victorville, Calif.; another in Lebanon, Tenn; and the third facility is located in North Sioux City, S.D. Our GREENIES® Products are made in Kansas City, Mo.

This achievement illustrates our commitment to pet-food safety.

How does The Nutro Company test its products?

Nobody invests more in pet food safety and quality than we do. We test every single batch of our key ingredients before we use it to ensure nutritional and food safety parameters are met. We test every shipment of grains for mycotoxins before we unload it to ensure it is safe. We carefully test every finished product batch to confirm microbiological safety, nutritional compliance and shelf stability before we ship it. The Nutro Company was recently the first company to receive the AFIA Facility Safety seal, which is a third-party pet-food-safety certification.

  • My dogs LOVE this food!

    By on

    I have a senior Boston Terrier that I order this for, with hopes to positively effect her declining eye sight. She has not been eating it long enough to see the effects, but all three of my dogs love the taste! It is the first canned dog food that they will eat with their kibble. They love it, therefore I love it :-)

  • My dog loves this food

    By on

    My dogs love this. I got it because my older dog (14) wasn't eating much. I always fed him dry food but he was getting bored with it or it was getting too difficult for him to eat. He can't wait to get this in his bowl.

  • Meat and veggies in it

    My dog really likes this food. It's meat chunks with carrots and peas in a light sauce. I mix a little of it with her dry food and it seems to satisfy her.
