  • Amazing Customer Service

    By on

    Had to call into customer service due to a question about the product. To my amazement, an actual human answered the phone within a few rings and was able to answer my question! Customer service is how companies differentiate themselves these days, and Chewy is doing it right!

  • great food for my cane corso!

    By on

    I have a Cane Corso and he's had issues with his stomach since I had him. After getting him off of the vet prescription food I got him on this food and it worked wonders for him! Chewy has always been fast and will communicate if something goes wrong. It's unfortunate that Nutro has been "temp out of stock" almost everywhere except a small business kind of near me. Hopefully this comes back in stock soon!!

  • Great dog food!

    By on

    I have a boxer and he has a sensitive stomach. Since giving him Nutro's venison dry dog food, we have no issues with his stomach. Great dog food for dogs that have sensitive digestive systems. I gave a four star rating only because it is becoming increasingly more difficult to find. Thankfully chewy.com sells it and are super fast with shipping it once ordered!

  • Great dog food.

    By on

    My dog started having seizures once a month & vomiting his undigested food after 3 hours. So changed his whole diet which had been chicken (which he loves) to Venison & eliminated all chicken from his diet to see if allergy was causing seizures, or chemicals in production or shipping of chickens in dog food I was using. Five months & no seizures with this action.

  • Fast, easy but why the giant box?

    By on

    Good price, fast shipping. Why did this giant bag of dog food come in a box with no handles though? Very difficult to carry up to my apartment and a waste of material. Chewy should consider finding a way to stick out shipping labels directly on the bag and maybe attach some plastic handles to the bag.

    I was told this food waa no longer available. Was thrilled when I found it. My German Shepherd has a sensitive GI tract. This is the food he tolerates the best AND he likes it. So glad to have found it.

  • Only food that works for my doodles

    By on

    This is the only food that my golden doodles tolerate with no problems. This was out of stock for a while and so I tried the lamb and they were a MESS. Thankfully this came back! Hard to swallow the price but totally worth the dogs digestive health.

  • My dog is eating and feeling better with this food.

    By on

    This dog food is really loved by my pet. I put down his bowl and he goes over and eats it until it is gone. This is very different from his old food. I just about had to bribe him to eat the old stuff.

  • Great for Chicken and other Allergies

    By on

    My American bulldog is 6 months old and we have just finished our first bag of this food. We LOVE IT!!! He has several food allergies. Chicken, Salmon, and barley are the allergies that we know of. This is an amazing food. He had lost patches of patches of hair due to the chicken allergy and it is now growing back. No more dandruff, runny nose, or itchy skin !!!! And it is Gluten free !!! The rice and oatmeal are so mild it does not bother his system. So many dog foods use chicken meal as filler : ( !!! I almost gave up and made homemade dog food before I found this !!!!! Thank you !!!
