  • Not Happy With The Changes

    By on

    As a farmer I'm very unhappy with the marketing tactics Nutro has went to. #1 is jumping on the NON GMO band wagon and #2 is all the pasture fed ingredients. Every time I see a company jump on this bandwagon of taking advantage of uninformed consumers fears to sell their product it makes me not want to buy it. I also don't like the new design of the bags. Since all the lamb dog food has went to this pasture fed stuff, the large breed and the adult dog food look almost the exact same. Our supplier has made the mistake of accidentally buying the wrong product and also my son has accidentally picked up the wrong bag because of their similarity in looks. I also don't like this new formula.

She loves this food and one of the main reasons I choose this brand was the lack of chicken products in it, but now because of the new formula I'll have to find a different brand. … more

  • Big fan of Nutro Dog Feed

    By on

    We've been purchasing Nutro Dog Feed for over 15 years. Using puppy, adult, and senior at different times. This is the most affordable dog feed that isn't full of by products, artificial flavoring & preservatives, or corn/wheat/soy protein. Our dogs have never had digestive problems. We have always used Lamb & Rice or Chicken & Rice.

  • No more trips to store

    By on

    Haven't really had much experience with this yet but I did make a miscalculation on how often I would need the food delivered. I was worried it was going to be a pain in the butt to change it but I couldn't have been more wrong. Very easy. I'll try and write another review after we get a few more deliveries.

  • My dogs didn't like it

    By on

    I bought it based off of the reviews but my dogs don't really care for it. We're going to use the bag for our one non picky dog but it's going to take forever for her to go through it, but she'll be fine. We tried this instead of Rachel rays just 6 but we're going to switch back.

  • Dogs love it

    By on

    Dogs love it. However I ordered the wrong type of food. I normally have on auto delivery the Nutro for weight management. Took it off my auto delivery for a month. Then added the incorrect food. Ordered the normal food for large breed in error. So confusing since they changed the design of the bags and now they are very similar. Don’t like the large kibble or the calorie content. Additionally my large boy only has one BM a day. Not good. Oh well my error. So the dogs will unfortunately gain weight until we finish the 30lb bag. Again they love it but I don’t.

  • Safe ingredients.

    So far I’m pleased with the ingredients. Feel this product may be the food of choice for my rescue pup Sydney. Have tried so many different ones for Her she has so many health issues but this seems to be the one.

  • Excellent food for healthy growth, skin, coat and bones!

    By on

    I had this recommended to me over 20 years ago when I got my first Rottweiler....after owning 4 @ breeding, I wouldn't feed my pets anything else. My Rotties have lived to 14 and 15 years old. I now only have one but he is built beautiful, skin and coat is beautiful, teeth great. I also feed this brand to my cane terrier....he loves it also. The breeder I purchased my female from 20 years ago used this for her rotties....She was in business over 30 years...her litters were A1+. I can't say enough...no other food I used prior to this could match up to the quality or results. Highly recommend.

  • Awesomeness

    By on

    I accidentally double ordered and I received an email asking if I meant to do that. I didn’t mean to order the additional item and it was handled very professionally using their customer service dept.

  • Good value.

    By on

    This is a good food, at a good price, that my dogs like. I usually add a little canned food, but it's not necessary. I rotate this with a more expensive kibble, but have no complaints with this one.
