Nutro MAX Large Breed Puppy food is formulated for the specific needs of large breed puppies, and made in the USA using only the finest ingredients that can be traced back to their source — like real chicken protein from farm-raised chickens and whole grains. And because Nutro only uses the best ingredients, you'll never find any chicken by-product meal, corn, wheat or soy protein. They're committed to provide great tasting, natural nutrition so your dog will live a long, healthy life.

Key Benefits

  • Made with great-tasting, real chicken, which delivers amino acids to build muscle and maintain a healthy metabolism. Give your dog all that she needs to thrive and stay healthy.
  • 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
  • Offers the balanced calorie and nutrient density - without added calories that might lead to early weight gain. The natural DHA in fish oil is essential for healthy growth and development of the brain and nervous system of developing young large breed dogs
  • Made with absolutely no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. This is a high quality product that is produced in the manufacturer's own facilities to ensure safety and quality.
  • Nutro's dedicated team of experts tailor their formulas to your pet's life stage and health condition. They only use natural ingredients that they directly buy and can trace back to their suppliers.

  • Incredibly hard to find dog food

    By on

    I decided to buy from Chewy.com because this dog food is very hard to find locally. The last time I went to purchase this dog food at my local pet store, they were out.I tried 3 different stores and had to buy different dog food because no one had it in stock. The great thing about having it delivered is I didn't have to lug it from the store to my house. I have back problems, so that's a huge help.

  • Amazing!!!

    By on

    Our friend recommended this food to us because our dogs were having simalir issues. They would bloat up and get sick after eating. Our dog has been on this food for 2 weeks and he loves it!!! And he doesn’t bloat or get sick anymore!!! Also, he is building up beautifully! He doesn’t look fat anymore, he looks tone and healthy now!

  • Best price and fast shipping.

    By on

    This is the best price around for this food. $15 cheaper than big name pet stores! Plus, the shipping is fast and cheap so I don't even have to carry it home. My 5 month old golden retriever gobbles this food down every time.

  • Healthy and Great

    By on

    My puppy Mitsy is chowying down to this dog food! Perfect for transitioning from wet to dry. Just have to mix a little with the wet dog food as you go, to let their little tummies get used to it.

    Our pitty mix boys are almost 5 months old now and have been doing really well on Nutro Max large breed puppy. It was hard to find locally so I checked out chewy.com and they actually have the best price. Win win!

  • Puppies are finicky

    By on

    I have a 10 wk old black lab male. He doesn't like the Max puppy food. It was what he was on after 7 weeks. My four year old black lab female wont eat it either? Don't know why.
