Description

Nutro uses real Australian and New Zealand lamb and whole brown rice in this limited ingredient diet natural puppy food. Their exclusive Smart Start Formula includes omega-3 fatty acids — EPA and DHA — which are essential for healthy growth and development. And, like all of their natural puppy food, this formula is fortified with vitamins, minerals and the perfect blend of nutrients.

Key Benefits
  • Number-one ingredient is great-tasting grass-fed lamb, which delivers amino acids to build muscle and maintain a healthy metabolism. Give your dog all she needs to thrive and stay healthy.
  • By limiting the number of ingredients, this nutritionally complete formula helps promote optimal digestive health in dogs with sensitive stomachs.
  • This formula provides puppies with balanced calcium and phosphorus levels to build strong bones for a long and healthy life. Nutro's unique blend of essential nutrients, such as protein, fat, vitamins and minerals, fuels a healthy metabolism for optimal growth
  • Made with absolutely no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. This is a high quality product that is produced in the manufacturer's own facilities to ensure safety and quality.
  • Nutro's dedicated team of experts tailor their formulas to your pet's life stage and health condition. They only use natural ingredients that they directly buy and can trace back to their suppliers.
