Questions & Answers

12 Customer Questions

Why do you have to put chicken in with lamb or other flavors
Answer by ChewyJun 25, 2019
At this time, Nutro is unable to source enough lamb meal that meets their high quality standards without a significant increase in price. All of their Nutro Wholesome Essentials dry foods will continue to meet the same quality and integrity standards of their Nutro Feed Clean philosophy. The new Nutro Wholesome Essentials Lamb and Rice recipes will continue to have lamb meat as the first ingredient, will continue to be made with non-GMO ingredients† as close to their native form as possible, and have no artificial preservatives, flavors or colors and no chicken by-product meal, corn, wheat, or soy protein.

How is this different from the lamb & rice Nutro food for "large breed" dogs? Can I feed this to my border collies and my chihuahua?
Answer by ChewyDec 08, 2017
The two Nutro foods differ in terms of Guaranteed Analysis and size of the pieces. Nutro Wholesome Essentials Large Breed Adult Lamb has 21% Crude Protein and 13% Crude Fat, while the Nutro Wholesome Essentials Adult Pasture Fed Lamb has 22% Crude Protein and 14% Crude Fat. Also, the large breed formulas has Glucosamine and Chondroitin to help with joints.

Is this food made in China?
Answer by ChewyOct 08, 2020
This formula is made in the U.S.

Is it grain free?
Answer by ChewyJul 23, 2019
This is not a grain-free recipe. For a full list of ingredients click the Nutritional Info Tab.

This has nearly doubled in cost in a single year

Price gauging is about as gross as low quality dog food ingredients. Nutro you really should be ashamed or maybe it's Chewy? Whoever it is our pets' health is obviously of no concern to any of you. Profits over pets - right?

Happy customer Happy dogs

I ordered one day and the next day it was at my door! I've changed from HSD to this. I slowly transitioned my dogs over a few days. They had no issues that I noticed and really like the food so far. I did get this on sale so, I hope the regular prices isn't too much. That's why I had to stop HSD. Inflation.

Good price for good food

Have been feeding this to my dog for almost 3 years; he seems to enjoy this food, also the ingredient list seems pretty good for the price as well.

Nutro was recommended by an alternative vet as the best food currently on the market. I tried it over a year ago and will never switch. My dog LOVES this food. I tried the chicken, but she prefers the lamb. Nutro may be a little more expensive, but it is worth it for my dog's health. Give it a try, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Great service/dogs love the food

Our three dogs love this food and they love to see the delivery man put the Chewy package on the front porch! Auto ship is great - no last minute runs to the store only to find out the store is out!

Nutro Lamb and Rice

My one year old sheepadoodle loves the Nutro Chicken his sister eats but he was experiencing a lot of itchiness so I changed him to Nutro Lamb and he does not like it at all. Now I’m stuck with a huge bag.
