    I got this food for my almost 8 year old chocolate lab after feeding him a normal Royal canin lab formula. He unfortunately was gaining the weight he lost back so I wanted to switch to something that would help with the weight control! I chose this formula for the other raving reviews and because it has the things he likes in it. When I received the bag I opened it to begin the transition process and the food smelled so good!! I was so pleased, I even bought some apple flavored treats for our shepherd and I would eat one if I didn’t know otherwise, this brand is amazing! There wasn’t any digestion problems for my lab, when we transition he usually has some bad gas, and he LOVES this food!

  • Our 15 year old Lily

    By on

    Our Lily just turned 15 (60 lb. boxer mix) and has been eating Nutro Senior for the last 5 years. She is healthy and strong. Only in the last year have we had to shorten our 3 mile walks to a 1 mile stroll and still no sign of pain. Need I say more?

    By on

    I have a 90lb German Shepherd/Golden mix, he is 8 years old almost 9, and a 50lb Australian Cattle Dog/Lab mix, who has weight problems as well as hip, so this food helps both problems due to it being senior formula! It helps my girl stay active and healthy!

  • First time for senior diet

    By on

    Two dogs - 5 yr. old large mutt: loves it (but honestly he loves all food) but our Portie 7 yr.old who is pretty finicky seems to be enjoying it also. I just put 4 stars since this is first time we've purchased it.

  • Nutro Dog Foods

    By on

    My daughter convinced me to try a better dog food and assured me the dogs would eat less and be healthier. After a little research, I decided to try Nutro and our dogs have been on it for over a year now. I must say that she was right. Our dogs are healthier than ever. They do not over eat; although they generally have access to food around the clock. We are very happy with Nutro dog foods.

  • A flavor favorite at last!

    By on

    Having tried almost all large breed grain free dry dog foods over the years, this one they love right out of the bag. No need to gussy it up with wet food, scraps, or an egg on top, although that can still happen!
