FAQ

What is the benefit of some of the formulas changes?

In our efforts to continuously improve digestion for your pets, we optimized fiber levels in our formulas by using more whole ingredients like chickpeas and reducing others like beet pulp to improve on our guarantee of small, firm stool.

Why did we remove the name of WHOLESOME ESSENTIALS?

We felt that since all the ingredients in each of our recipes are wholesome and essential to the benefits of the recipe, it was unnecessary to call it out on just 1 of our lineups.

Are the Lamb & Rice Recipes still Limited Ingredient Diet?

Yes. Our Limited Ingredient Diets are designed to help minimize food sensitivities by limiting the type of ingredients used to those not commonly associated with food sensitivities. There will still only be 1 novel animal protein in each pack - lamb and lamb meal. The Venison Meal, Whole Brown Rice & Oatmeal Recipe and Fish, Whole Brown Rice & Potato Recipe will also remain as Limited Ingredient Diet with only 1 novel animal protein source. Although some formulas have additional carbohydrate sources (e.g. chickpea and split pea), we are still limiting the type of ingredients to those that are not commonly associated with food sensitivities (i.e. we still do not have wheat or corn).

Does the new NUTRO™ dog food still have a skin and coat guarantee?

Yes, all dog formulas except the Lite Weight Loss products will still have a complete satisfaction or your money back guarantee to provide healthy skin and a soft, shiny coat.

What is the benefit of chickpeas and split peas in NUTRO™ Dog Food?

Chickpeas have an excellent balance of carbohydrates, protein, and fiber. Thus our formula can provide carbohydrates, protein, and fiber from a single, whole ingredient rather than fractionated ingredients that are high in only 1 nutrient.

What is the benefit of flaxseed in NUTRO™ Dog Food?

Flaxseed is used as a source of fiber, protein, and healthy oils. The soluble and insoluble fibers in flaxseed help us achieve better digestive health and stool quality in our formulas. Additionally, it contributes healthy oils, including omega - 3 and omega - 6 fatty acids, like linoleic acid, which help fulfill essential nutrient requirements and promote skin and coat health.

What is the benefit of alfalfa meal in our formulas?

Alfalfa meal is used as a source of fiber in our High Protein Grain Free Recipes. The soluble and insoluble fibers in alfalfa meal help us achieve better digestive health and stool quality in our formulas. Additionally, alfalfa meal is used in Large Breed Weight Management and Lite Weight Loss products as a fiber source and to help minimize the caloric content.

Is there a formulation change on wet?

Yes. We have increased essential nutrients in our wet dog formulas so that feeding guidelines can be tailored to the energy needs of inactive dogs while still providing optimal nutrition and meeting essential nutrient requirements.

Why is natural pet food better?

We believe that natural pet food is healthier, safer and tastier.

Does NUTRO Brand Dog and Cat Food contain artificial preservatives?

No, our foods are naturally preserved with vitamin E. We never use chemicals like BHA, BHT, ethoxyquin, propyl gallate or sodium hexametaphosphate in NUTRO™ Natural Dog Food or Cat Food.

Where are NUTRO Products made?

We are proud that NUTRO Products are made in our own U.S. facilities. Our facilities are located in Victorville, Calif.; Lebanon, Tenn.; and North Sioux City, S.D. Our GREENIES Products are made in Kansas City, Mo.

How do you read the code dates on NUTRO Cans and Trays?

It is the first line and will appear like the following example:Best by 04 AUG 13 92 1First line: “Best by 04 AUG 13” means it’s best by August 4, 2013. “92 1” is the plant ID information.Second line: Contains manufacturing information, such as shift, line, time, etc.

  • Best food ever

    By on

    I have no idea why but our 14 year old Golden Retriever is up and moving around again because of this food! We fed him the dry form of this and he ate it but since we started giving him the wet version, he acts young again! Following me around the house instead of lying in his bed all day! Thank you Nutro Ultra!

  • Really helps my senior dog!

    By on

    I have always fed my pets Nutro products. Recently I adopted a serverly arthritic senior dog. He was very malnourished and neglected. Every step hurt him. My vet started him on gabapentin which helps. But when I found this product that contains glucosamine I knew I had to try it. He loves the flavor and texture, and it really seems to be helping.

  • Love love This For My Picky Senior

    By on

    My senior dog has gotten really picky at 12. Sometimes she won't eat unless I sit beside her and hand feed her. I needed to try something else so bought this food. It's amazing, she absolutely loves it, I can't even get the other dogs fed before she is finished. She enjoys eating again:)

  • None of them love it

    By on

    None of my 5 dogs like this. They walk around until all bowls have been laid down, then they eat because they know nothing else is coming. I mix it with the Dry food, thinking this will have them want to eat the dry. Not. I'm really surprised as Nutro Ultra has a Small Senior loaf that they love.

  • I recommend

    By on

    I tried it a while ago and the dogs liked it. I have 2 Doberman Pinchers. I think it’s as good as Core at a lower price. And it doesn’t upset their stomach at all.

  • Saved my 17 year old mini Eskimo

    By on

    I have an old girl who turned 17 recently. She suffers from chronic kidney disease and canine cognitive disorder. The kidney disease is taking it’s toll on her, she dropped about 20% of her body weight. She has been on Nutro her whole life and given her poor tooth quality and detrorating condition I made the decision to switch her to this soft food. She has gained a considerable amount of weight back and is more active and attentive than she has been. Plus she chows down on this food. She loves the soft chunks and the gravy. I am very happy with this food and highly reccomend it.

  • Wet dog food

    By on

    Only problem is I have 2 Schnauzers, and the gravy in this makes for messy beard. I preferred the senior canned food (without gravy) I’d ordered in the past, but was not listed when I ordered this. They hate to have their face/beards washed! LOL! Probably won’t order it again.
