  • No More Stepping On Dog Food!

    By on

    My little muppet (Fiona) is in love with this new food and so am I!! No matter what food I got before she would pick out ALL the red and green pieces and leave them on the floor for me to step on. While not as bad a legos walking through a mine field of kibble was equally as pleasant. She has not once left me food to walk on since we got the bag and she will clean her dish every time. Thank You Nutri for making a food Fiona enjoys! (& saving my feet)

  • Perfect and a life saver

    By on

    My poor bulldog pup got switched to this food after a very scary bout of pancreatitis at the end of last year. I am convinced that this food helped save her. AND she likes it. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone and everyone who needs to give their dog a simple ingredient, wholly nutritious, food. I love the fact that I know what’s going into my dog and that the meat is number one on the ingredient list. Never going back to anything else ever.

  • great dog food

    By on

    I have been buying the nutro lamb and rice formula for my dog for a long time. She used to have skin issues but since switching her to this food, the skin problems have cleared up. I had bought this item in a local store until they stopped carrying it and I checked it out on your site - to find that I could get it at a good price and delivered right to my door with free shipping.

    I'm generally reluctant to purchase items online due to the fact that what you see isn't always what you get. However I ordered some dog food and treats online with Chewy.com and the delivery came as expected and the product is exactly the same I would have bought at my local pet store. I save time and money! Though I was a first time user I will be a continual user.

  • Nutro Lamb and Rice

    By on

    We switched our older lab Luke to Nutro several months ago. His coat has never been more shiny and he shed a lot of extra weight that he had been carrying. We also got a puppy last year and she had been started on a different brand, over time and as she approached the 1-year mark we also switched her to Nutro Lamb and Rice small bites. Both dogs love the food and seem to be healthier!

  • Finding a dog food

    By on

    We've 3 small dogs.. we need a no chicken food because of allergies... we need small bites and we like a larger bag as all are fed the same food and it's available 24/7.... All three dogs devour this food the first two weeks! Now they have backed off to a normal pace... they must like it. None seem to have problems with it and the Old dog eats it With water added or without. So as of now we like what we see.

  • Great Food for picky eaters

    By on

    I have all sizes of sighthounds -- 2 Italian Greyhounds, a Whippet and a Greyhound. They ALL love these Nutro Essential foods. The small bites are great for my Littles, but they're crunchy and size isn't an issue for my 90lb grey. Good clean food that they will eat every time -- and with Chewy, it's a great price too!

  • My Maltese is in dog food heaven

    By on

    My little Maltese, who's so picky, is in heaven. I mixed a few small bites into her regular food to start transitioning, and she picked the pieces out and ate them up, leaving her regular food in the bowl. She was running in circles, barking for more. I believe I've found the answer to my little girl's food boredom.

  • POODLE APPROVED

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    I have all sizes of poodles, from a 93 pound standard to a miniature who weighs 16 pounds. I recently lost a toy to cancer who also loved this food. it is the only dry kibble that all my adults like. I also rescue and it is this food they go on, gain weight, and can not wait to eat. Each rescue goes home with enough food for at least 2 weeks. I have the information down in a folder and it says, I order from Chewy.Com. I either give them a bag or send them a photo on my iPad. I switch from the salmon to the lamb, these are the dogs favorites. The adult rescues who were neglected gobble this up and gain about 4 pounds a week until they get to a healthy weight.

I love being able to order from Chewy and knowing I'll have it within 3 days. If I have ever had a problem, Chewy knows who I am . I am very satisfied with Chewy. I love I can phone 24 / 7 and someone speaks English to me. ( & understands me) … more
