About Nulo Frontrunner High-Meat Grain-Inclusive Kibble for Dogs

The Heart of Frontrunner

Canine legends aren’t born, they’re made. While many brands boost their foods’ protein content with pea protein and potato protein, Nulo believes animal-based proteins have the optimal amino acid profile your dog needs to run at the front of the pack. Give your dog nutrition that nourishes the mind, body and soul for years to come with Frontrunner.

Raising the Bar on What’s in Their Bowl

From their careful selection of ingredients—like protein-rich turkey, lamb, salmon, chicken, beef and duck—to low-glycemic carb source choices like lentils, chickpeas, barley, oat, millet and sweet potatoes, Nulo approaches pet food the way they approach everything: no shortcuts allowed.

(Nu)trition + (Lo)ve

Nutrition and love are at the core of everything Nulo does. That is why they only use the finest ingredients to craft their high-meat, low-carb recipes. So go ahead and show your pet some love with the wholesome nutrition of Nulo foods.

Healthier Together

Since day one, Nulo has been committed to inspiring pet parents to live healthier together with their pets. That starts with nutrition—animal-based proteins for muscle, low carbs for a healthy weight, and probiotics for immune support are just a few of the ways each recipe provides your pet with a healthy start at every meal. So whatever the day brings, from a big stretch to endless fetch, your best friend will be ready!

What’s the Secret? Real Food!

The team at Nulo believes that keeping pets healthy is a way of life. That’s why their formulas are full of everything pets need and nothing they don’t. The secret in every Nulo recipe is real food you can feel good about feeding.

What Makes Nulo Different?

Backed by Science

Created by nutritionists, vets and food formulators who know that cats and dogs are carnivores who thrive on meat.

Animal-Based Proteins

Nulo recipes contain leading levels of animal-based proteins and are rich in amino acids.

Low in Carbohydrates

These lower carb recipes more closely mimic the ancestral diet of cats and dogs and help pets maintain a healthy weight.

Functional Probiotics

Probiotics with superior survivability help support digestive health and improve nutrient absorption.

About Nulo

Nulo’s story began with Michael, an all-American athlete, and Max, an English Labrador. Together, they set out on a mission to improve the quality of pet food by incorporating nutrients essential to the health and well-being of pets. Today, Nulo’s recipes help nourish the healthiest and happiest furry family members around, bringing out the best in them—because they bring out the best in us!

Questions & Answers

4 Customer Questions

Is this for puppies?
Answer by ChewyJun 13, 2021
This food is suitable for dogs of all life stages, including the growth of puppies except large breed dogs over 70 pounds at adult size.

How many cups in the 14 lb bag?
Answer by ChewyJan 25, 2021
There is approximately 4 cups in a pound.

What is the percentage of salt as fed?
Answer by ChewyJan 07, 2021
Nulo is unable to provide the exact percentage of salt (or any other ingredient) in their recipes (this is part of their proprietary formula!), we can certainly provide the level of sodium! The FrontRunner Small Breed Turkey, Whitefish, & Quinoa recipe is 0.65% sodium on an as-fed basis. This value represents the typical (average) analysis of our finished product.

How much of the protein comes from meat?
Answer by ChewyAug 28, 2020
For Nulo Frontrunner formulas, 77% of the protein comes from animal sources (meat).

We purchased this food for our Pomeranian/Poodle mix. We also have a large labradoodle. They love it, but this food gave them the most atomic farts I have ever experienced. I mean, I lost an entire two nights of sleep because the foul smell kept waking me. Of course, I switched the little dog to Science Diet, which the labradoodle has always loved! I'm happy to report that the farts quickly disappeared.

FAVE for Our Pups

Have a very picky eater she would go days without eating anothing because she didn’t like what was in front of her. After some trial and error with other brands Nulo has been her favorite! This is such a great compromise with my veterinarian as well, I didn’t want to go completely grain free and this has been so perfect for now BOTH of my pups. Grateful for trustful brands like Nulo their food really was a lifesaver for my picky pup!

Not a Big Hit

My dog sniffed the bag and walked away. I opened the bag and offered her a kibble. She took it between her teeth and dropped it on the floor and walked out the dog door. Not too subtle. So, we are going to buy some more Tender and True which she likes. I try to add a little variety now and then because I think it's healthy, but sometimes I choose things that danged cat next door might like. Woof. The ingredients look good, but this just isn't a hit for us. It will go to the local shelter.

Good Food!

I just incorporated Nulo frontrunner small breed into my 11-yr old Maltese dog's dry food. So far, so good. She is tolerating it and seems to enjoy it as much as any she's had. I'm hoping the turkey keeps her calm, and the fish will help her aging joints. Thanks for the combination--it's hard to find.

Refuse to eat

My dogs refuse to eat this food. I have some who will eat anything and they refuse. So sad. Trying something else - back to the drawing board.

Great Food!

I originally bought this food at my local family-owned pet store. I wanted to try something new that my pups would love. They gave me a sample bag. It was great! My dogs loved it! I found it for a bigger size at a better price here at Chewy and now I'm not ever changing foods again!

Great for small dogs

The kibble size is perfect for my 8lb chihuahua, she also really likes it which was surprising because she’s really picky. I love that this food doesn’t have legumes in it too, I definitely recommend it
