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,

  • Not For Every Cat

    By on

    Of my 16 rescue feral cats only 1 will eat this food despite its nutritional value. The others prefer the less expensive Friskies canned food. The funny thing is that the 1 cat that eats Nutro Max Adult Chicken & Lamb Formula is a finicky eater. I am glad 1 cat will eat this food as it is not cheap and I can not afford to throw it away. My advice is to pick up a can at your local pet supply and give it a try before investing in a case.

  • Bad texture and smell

    By on

    My cats will not eat it. I ordered it by mistake, that's what I get for being in a hurry. Now I'm stuck with several cases of this horrible looking and smelly food. I normally order them food with sauce.

    Ming is a purr-titular eater. He like this flavor in chunks, but has texture issues with pates. He gobbles this up in chunks, but in his form, only a bit at a time. Love Nutro Max!

    My cats love the chunks and that's what I wanted but made a mistake and ordered the pate. Unfortunately, my cats do not like it even when I mix it with chunks they eat around it.

    My cats live the fine texture of Nutro Max Pate. Like thick pudding. No chunks or offensive odor.

  • I am not a pet parent

    By on

    Please! I'm a pet owner. I love my critters with all my heart. I take care of them and buy them the best food that I can afford (and this Max Cat is great-my fussy, 16 year old cat gobbles it down), but never once have I considered myself their parent. They are my companions, my best friends, not my children. I abhor the term "pet parent."

  • Happy cats

    My cats are happy with the cat food. They know when it is time to be fed and start reminding us to get going and give them the canned food.

  • 4 cats love it, 1 likes it, 1 won't touch ANY wet food

    By on

    The title says it all. For the most part I have to say it's a great product, no diarrhea with my sensitive Bengal cat, and the other cats really go for it, except 1, that acts like he doesn't know how to eat canned food, although he's right there crying when I'm getting the food ready.
