    My 3 cats really enjoy this food and have been eating it for years now. Every once in awhile we do get a bad bag and they stop eating it. I have gotten in the habit of smelling the food to make sure it is good and getting a new bag monthly to keep it nice and fresh.

    Finicky cats

    By on

    My cats are finicky eaters. Plus, at times, they seem to throw up after eating. So, I decided it was time for a change. I switched from Blue Buffalo Sensitive Stomach dry food to Nutro dry food. They love both the chicken flavor and fish flavor. Plus, no more throw up! Next I switched from Purina One wet food to Science Diet. They are still finicky about that, but I warm it up for 10 seconds in the microwave and they will eat it. What we do for our beloved pets! Thanks, Chewy,

    Holy Salmon

    By on Top 50 Contributor

    As soon as I opened the bag, all I could smell was salmon! I only feed Nutro products to my pets and they all have incredibly soft and lustrous coats. The cats that we are fostering lost some excess weight and they shed less. I don't think that any of the cats are picky, however, they scarf their Nutro down like it's the tastiest thing they've had. I know that they're healthy, too.

    My Girl's Favorite!

    Been feeding my cats Nutro foods for years. My current girl, Penny, won't touch any other dry food variety. She likes what she likes and that's fine by me.

    Great so far

    By on

    Started feeding Nutro Essentials to my rescued cats a year ago. I was surprised they ate it since they would never eat the Nutro Max. The ingredients sound healthy. Contains no "animal" products or "flavors" as many other dry foods contain. Wasn't sure about the herbs included but no health issues so far. The price here at Chewy has been less than other retailers.

    Cats love salmon

    By on

    My cats were sneaking pieces of dry salmon dog food, so I decided to try a salmon cat food. All three cats (ages 10, 12, 18) love it, and its great to see the eldest cat eating alot more.

    Something is different

    By on

    I bought this a while back. My cats seemed to really like it. But it hasn't received the same enthusiasm as before. My younger cat Punkin won't eat it at all. My older cat Denny eats it but not impressed. I just don't understand. Did they change their recipe??
