  • My Dogs love Nutro

    By on

    I have two rescue dogs that are now age two. I have had them over 1 1/2 years. I have been feeding them Nutro Lamb and Rice and they used to love it , but, then started not really eating their breakfast portion. I switched to Nutro Chicken/Brown Rice/Sweet Potato and WOW they are attacking the food!! They are large dogs (50-60 lbs) Lab and Lab/Boxer/Terrier mix. They are very active and get 5 1/2 cups per day each. I highly recommend this food! My Vet initially recommended Nutro.

  • For Dogs 18+ Months

    By on

    I've had my dog on Nutro Large Breed Food and panicked when I realized at 14 months I was still feeding her the puppy formula. I was told she should be on the adult formula by Chewy representatives, so switched her over to it, only to realize that the bag says for dogs 18+ months. My suggestion is to go to a store and see the food in person before making any changes.

  • They LOVE it

    By on

    I have 2 Great Danes both 3 years old. They have always eaten a grain free diet and finding a good food for a good price can be a challenge especially with how much they eat. But after a friend told me about Nurtro I decided to give it a try. My dogs get tired of food after a while even when changing the protein but hey loved this one!

  • I love this place

    By on

    I truly love this service. I am older and have a bad back. Front door service is great for me since I buy 30 lb bags of dog food at a time and 3 bags a month get heavy! They are always on time and I can change my order any time. I have even changed it at the last minute and it came on time and with the correct items ordered. GREAT SERVICE

  • Good for dogs who have digestive issues

    By on

    Our dog (heeler/ cattle dog)had coxcisis and giardia and was 32 lbs when we adopted him two years ago. He lived on chicken and rice for his first 6 months with us. The vet recommended the earlier version of this food and we have been with it every since. It has no weird ingredients and seems to give our dog every thing he needs. He is now a healthy 48lbs and the vet thinks he looks great. He gets 2 cups a day along with other, simple- ingredient treats.

  • Great Replacement for Castor & Pollux

    By on

    Chewy consistently delivered Castor & Pollux until the product was not available. The dogs have adjusted well to this change. Please note the vegetables in this food are not listed as Non-GMO, but the main products compare with the previous brand. Words cannot express my gratitude to the excellent customer service provided by Chewy!

  • Neither of my dogs will eat this food

    By on

    I purchased this food for my Border Collie mix and my Chow mix. After a couple meals, they quit eating it. I have left over food that I throw out after every meal.

  • Our Dobie loves it!

    By on

    We had to switch foods since Chewy wasn't carrying her food anymore....we tried Nutro and It was a hit! I first noticed that it actually smells like chicken when I opened the bag. Our pooch loves it. She eats this better than the food she was on. Also she hasn't experienced any tummy or pooping issues with the switch.
