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 2 years from the date of manufacture.Here is an exam

    No Sir they didnt like it.

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    This food has a nice consistency. I bought it for some of my senior cats,as it has good ingredients. They used to eat this last year. I Think Nutro changed the recipie or something . Now the cats just snif and walked away. I was going to mix it with their other brand to get them to eat it. Then decided I shouldnt. Might have something wrong with it.

    Great Cat Food

    By on

    My roommate, Laney, and I love this food! It has quality ingredients. It's also a good amount of calories for an averaged sized cat to be getting twice per day.

    Something has changed

    By on

    We've been using Nutro Chunky Loaf Chicken Dinner since 2016. It's been the food of choice for the wetfood morning meal for our five cats, and they have always cleaned up their bowls. However, something has changed as of our last order in July. All five are suddenly snubbing the Chunky Loaf Chicken or leaving most of it in their bowls. It smells the same (to us, at least) but it looks darker than it used to. Something has changed, and we are now trying other brands to replace it.

    Wish It Came In Soft Loaf

    By on

    I'm impressed with Nutro's quality. All the Nutro wet foods smell like real food -- not like "cat food" -- which I think is a big plus. I just wish the Salmon & Tuna Dinner and Chicken Dinner came in soft loaf rather than chunky loaf; I mash the chunks of chicken so that it's more palatable to my cats. Yes, they clean their plates. I have 4 cats, and I worry about what I feed them. I have confidence in the Nutro foods.

    My Cat Eats It Straight From The Can!

    By on

    I barely even pop open another can and there he is! Skates across the counter like Tom Cruise in Risky Business :) lol! The cans are rather small, but that's so he doesn't get fat from all the fish oil and chicken & pork broth. Doesn't blend quite as easily in dry kibble as Chicken and Liver formula that I found seems to be discontinued, but I do have to say that I like how smooth and soft his coat has been. He doesn't seem to be scratching quite as much either. Will keep ordering even when the Chicken and Lamb Max Cat comes in.

    Cats wouldn't even touch it

    By on

    I have been trying to find a healthier wet cat food for my cats and have tried a few different foods, but this one they wouldn't even touch. I tried mixing it with their old food and that still didn't work. On to the next food.

    Both Cats Love It- Hallelujah!

    By on

    Both of my crazy picky cats love this food. After trying 15 different brands and flavors- I finally found this! It's a tad expensive- but I change it out with a Frisky flavor and they seem to like both.

    I have a picky eater old but young Russian Blue who never turns down Nutro Adult Chunky Chicken or Salmon. Would rather starve than eat anything else. Thanks for the prompt shipping and great customer service.
