Not what I expected

I switched my senior dogs to the senior formula assuming it would be easier for my (almost) toothless boy to eat. What a surprise to find the kibble pieces were LARGER than the Small Breed adult I was already feeding. Rather disappointed in this formula, so will be switching them back to the small breed adult for the smaller bites

Upped Price???

It's nice to order online but too much inconsistency in service and cost causes immense frustration. You HAVE lost your minds!!! THis is only the 2nd time this product has been ordered. Why has the product increased $20????

Lola loves it

Our almost 11 yo Springer goes after this food much more eagerly than the previous senior food we tried. She walks with me 2-3 miles per day, remains playful and has a glossy coat. Our other secret is adding a couple fresh green beans to her dinner bowl.

Two big dogs love it.

Our dogs (1 golden, 1 newfie mix) have been fed Solid Gold for years. We have changed up the blend occasionally. They ate most, but sometimes not with gusto. We just gave a try to Nutro Ultra Senior. They love it, even when given dry without their favorite homemade chicken broth. Thanks for introducing us to it. Happy wags.

This food LOOKS superior, but...

However, upon reading the ingredients on the back, the front was completely misleading. At the first sighting of the word "meal," I knew this was not for my senior best friend. Research thoroughly.

I should not have ordered this

So Chewy did not have my Nutro Ultra small breed dog food in stock, it has been in and out of stock and runs out before I can order it. So I had to try two different kinds. I thought I was being smart and ordering the same brand and my pups are older, so senior made sense... well, nothing against this food, but my dogs were not interested. I jumped the gun too quickly I think and should have just waited, but I have 5 dogs and did not want to run out of food. I ordered another smaller bag of a different brand and the chunks were HUGE and that turned out horrible. SO I just going to donate this bag and the other bag and I was able to get the bag I needed just a few minutes ago!

Makes him go

We've had our rescue for 4 years and have always given him the Nutro brand...when we learned he was older than we originally thought we switched to the regular senior brand, and when I saw this Ultra thought we'd try makes him poop all day long! He's always been regular but he poops twice as much and has very soft stools...hopefully it doesn't affect his health (haven't asked the vet yet) but we'll be switching back to the regular senior food. Wouldn't try this one again. I'll spare you photos, LOL.

Well-packaged for shipping! My dog seems to love it, and it has stopped the itchiness he had before! His coat looks healthy and shiny!

Coco loved it!

We made the switch to this after advice from our vet to add some grain to our dogs diet. She loved it from the start - no hesitation.
