FAQ

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 1 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 1 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 1 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 1 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.

  • High Quality Ingredients, Kitten Loves

    By on

    After doing a ton of research, this wet food truly has the best natural ingredients, without all the by-products and cheap additives so many companies put in their cat food. All it has is the good, healthy stuff. It’s my cat’s favorite. We feed her Wellness Core dry food and this wet food. Since starting these foods, her fur is so so soft and she seems to be thriving. The food also cleared up some digestive issues that she had when we fed her Iams and Science Diet before.

  • Food for Kittydog

    By on

    I love Chewy. No more driving to the pet food store. What I really like about Chewy is that it arrives SOOOO quickly and I save money buying from Chewy. The number one reason I like Chewy is that my cat knows that the Chewy package that arrives is for her and I think that makes her feel like part of the family.

    My 6-1/2 year-old Snowshoe ABSOLUTELY LOVES this food! She even licks her plate clean. She only likes really soft canned food and I finally found the one with the perfect texture and consistency.

  • Nutro Kitten Soft Loaf Chicken

    By on

    I started my kittens on this when I got them when they were 5 weeks old per my vet's recommendation. They love it and even my older cat loves it so they've all stayed on this canned food. Love the convenience of buying this by the case online and the fast delivery makes it ultra convenient for me.

  • Only the best for 2 new kittens

    By on

    We just adopted 2 farm kittens that are off to a rough start with intestinal parasites and god awful ringworm. So I did a great deal of online research as to the best canned kitten food to feed them. This one is rated high and chewy had a great price plus free delivery. I am very pleased and signed up for the automatic shipments to save even a bit more $$. They love the food!

  • Got a good rating

    By on

    This food got a good rating on cleanlabelproject.org so I was happy when my two newly adopted kittens took right to it. They had diarrhea when we got them, but this and also feeding them Fromm Gold Kitten has resulted in shiny soft coats and no more diarrhea (so glad to not be cleaning up after that anymore). They come running when they hear it being opened! I did offer it to our adult cat as well, to see if he would like it, but he turned his nose up at it.

  • Used for a senior cat

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    We used this for one of our senior cats to get a few more calories in him when he was having some health issues. At the time we were pureeing his food and feeding him with a syringe. The pate is moist so it was readily accepted. We foster and I would definitely use this for kittens.

  • All the cats like this kitten canned food

    By on

    Then again, all the cats seem to like most good canned cat food so it's hard to tell if it's this cat food or what. But there are a few they really DON'T like, which I'm not naming, so there's that to consider. Oddly enough, a top ranked brand is one they really don't like. Go figure.

  • Foster Kittens' Favorite Food

    By on

    I have two foster kittens, Peach and Rosalina. Both are VERY malnourished. It took a lot of coaxing to get them to eat...and I tried just about every brand and flavor of every canned food out there. This kitten food, however, was the one that they ate voraciously. I just bought a second case of it, and will use it in the future for other fosters.
