Questions & Answers

22 Customer Questions

I have a 4 month old German Shepard and she is gorgeous. I am looking for a lg. breed puppy food that will support all my babys needs. What is the difference between the Nutro Ulrta and the Nutra Wholesale Essential. Both are chicken based. Thanks.
Answer by ChewyJan 26, 2018
Nutro Wholesome Essentials is made with one protein and one grain. Nutro Ultra is multi-protein, multi-grain, and contains a superfood blend.

Is this food non GMO?
Answer by ChewyJun 23, 2018
This food is made with non-GMO ingredients.

When listing calcium and phosphorus why does it list a minimum and a maximum? What does that mean? Thanks!
Answer by ChewyJun 04, 2018
In this case the manufacturer tests for both the minimum and maximum levels of calcium and phosphorus in different batches, since it can vary naturally.

Is this dye free?
Answer by ChewySep 21, 2022
Nutro never adds artificial preservatives, flavors or colors to their formulas.

Good product

I feed my last dog Nutro almost all her life so I decided to stick with Nutro for my new pup. I am not sure but it seems to be giving her a lot of gas. She really likes it so I am going to stick with it as I trust the Nutro Brand.

Our new puppy loves it!

We got our German Shepherd puppy with a bag of food from the breeder but our vet recommended we switch -- well, our puppy loves this food (she was picky with the breeder's food)! We're glad we got this food and that Chewy makes it easy and affordable to order; we got it within two days. We've been faithful Chewy customers since about 2011.

Great Food for large breeds

My humans gave this to me on my first day with them. It smelled funny at first, but I learned to love it. But let’s be honest; I’m a Rottweiler, so I will eat ANYTHING. My humans tell me that this is the best food for me to eat because I grow fast and this food has special ingredients that support healthy joints. My humans mix mine with wet food and it is fabulous. My coat is shiny, I have healthy poos and I only throw up when I eat too fast and don’t chew, but what can I say; I’m a Rottweiler, I eat, and take big poos, it’s what I do. If you’re a dog and you want to live a long life without bad hips, and painful arthritis; eat this when you’re little and your bones will be good. Thanks Nutro for making a food for large breed dogs.

gave my dog diarrhea

I really wanted my dog to like Nutro but not only does she not like the food (will even skip meals because she doesn’t like it) but it gave her diarrhea. I switched her food slowly for a week as per instructions on the bag, but her poops have been looking much worse. I tried another brand and she got better. I wanted to see if it was really the Nutro food causing it, so I slowly switched back to Nutro. I let her get used to the food but her poops only got worse and worse while eating Nutro. Btw, I have a 4.5 months black lab puppy

Upset stomach

Tried to get puppy accustomed to the food by gradually adding it into current diet. Went on rice and chicken for a few days to get her stomach back to normal. Finally had to give up on this food and go to another brand.

Don’t recommend,

Tried this for my American Bully because of the listed ingredients and the fact that there were no fillers but It gave my dog diarrhea. I eased him from his original food to the Nutro after about a week but his stomach still bothered him
