  • Love Nutro Essentials

    By on

    What I purchased says chicken, brown rice & sweet potato. No mention of oatmeal. When we rescued our two Chihuahua mix one year old girls we were told they were use to eating Nutro Essentials chicken, brown rice and sweet potatoes. So that is what we feed them. They get breakfast and dinner and in between they get the Milkbone chicken or beef treats. They are both doing quite well and we love them. Their names are Poppy and Daisy and they are my flower children.

  • Liked best by my Chihuahuas and me!

    By on

    Seems that Nutro has discontinued their Lamb & Rice Toy food. This is very similar kibble but with chicken instead of lamb. I generally try to avoid chicken because of my other dogs sensitivity to all forms of chicken, but the Chihuahuas like this and seem to be doing well.

    I have always preferred Nutro! So happy that my Rascally Roo Roo (Chihuahua) was able to eat the smaller bits since he has issues with his teeth. His half brother, Scamper, gives it all "paws up"! Thanks.

  • Amazing Product

    I would like to start this review by thanking Nutro for the opportunity to try this product. I have had my Chihuahua, Sparkle, for approaching three years now. I am always looking for the food that is the best and the healthiest for him. When I was first introduced to Nutro's product, I was thinking, "there is no way it is this healthy." Yet hear I am, proven wrong. As i opened the bag, he was waiting extremely anxious to try it, allured by the smell. As I began to pour it, he begun to eat it just as fast. I was like, "Ok, he likes it that's a good sign." Those signs kept getting better over the next few days he continued to eat it. He became much more energized, playful, and his coat took a I would like to start this review by thanking Nutro for the opportunity to try this product.

I will admit I was quite skeptical at first, however, I am now a firm believer that this is the best dog food for my little friend. Again, Nutro, thank you for the amazing opportunity to try this. I can certainly tell you that I love it, he loves it, and I will be a Nutro consumer for times to come! … more

  • Great kibble for small dogs

    By on

    This is a great kibble for small dogs since the pieces are very small. I like the all natural ingredients and Sassy gobbles it down. I do mix it with a little wet dog food. I'm just one of those people who doesn't like to give her dogs just dry. It seems to go a long way. Chewy's price on this was better than my local pet store.

    I received a free bag from nutro about a week ago.i wasn't sure if my dog would like it or not.she doesn't have any middle teeth and is picky about her dog food.it is the perfect size and she seems to enjoy the flavor.it is alot easier for her to chew.i was worried she might choke but,it seems to be just the right size.i love that it is so healthy for her.also i was unsure if it would make her poop really soft or etc but she seems to be just fine.i am very happy about this nutro toy breed dog food and very grateful for the free sampke bag.i will be switching dog food brands.

More importantly Jack loves this too, we will be switching to Nutro! I've received this product for my honest review! #GotItFree

  • Roll over good!

    By on

    I love this food and my dog does too! The first 5 ingredients are: Chicken, chicken meal, whole grain oatmeal, split peas, and whole brown rice. ALL REAL FOOD. This product is Non-GMO, which is something I love. I actually KNOW what I am giving my pet! They love Nutro's chicken, brown rice, and sweet potato recipe. The pieces are very small so it makes it easier for small dogs to eat, which is great! I love that they use non-GMO and no artificial flavors or preservatives! I would recommend this product to anyone who asks about it because I have nothing bad to say about it!

  • Very good food for small dogs

    By on

    I have received NUTRO Wholesome Essentials Toy Breed Adult Farm-Raised Chicken, Brown Rice & Sweet Potato Recipe as part of a promotion from the brand. My pekingese is quite capricious about new food, but this one difinitely catch his attention. At this time he refuse any other dry food and eat NUTRO food only. Bites are small which is good for small dogs. And ingredients are just wonderful!
