  • Perfect and a life saver

    By on

    My poor bulldog pup got switched to this food after a very scary bout of pancreatitis at the end of last year. I am convinced that this food helped save her. AND she likes it. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone and everyone who needs to give their dog a simple ingredient, wholly nutritious, food. I love the fact that I know what’s going into my dog and that the meat is number one on the ingredient list. Never going back to anything else ever.

  • Love this food!

    By on

    Sophie loves this food! The kibble is the perfect size for her since she will sometimes not chew her food enough, the flavor seems to be perfect for her, and even the other dogs in my family love this food (we always share a few bites when we're with them!) Beagles are known for being overweight, but Sophie is holding steady between 21 and 24 pounds, and I think our food has something to do with it. We absolutely recommend this food to anyone looking for a good limited ingredient blend.

  • Finding a dog food

    By on

    We've 3 small dogs.. we need a no chicken food because of allergies... we need small bites and we like a larger bag as all are fed the same food and it's available 24/7.... All three dogs devour this food the first two weeks! Now they have backed off to a normal pace... they must like it. None seem to have problems with it and the Old dog eats it With water added or without. So as of now we like what we see.

  • Nutro Lamb and Rice

    By on

    We switched our older lab Luke to Nutro several months ago. His coat has never been more shiny and he shed a lot of extra weight that he had been carrying. We also got a puppy last year and she had been started on a different brand, over time and as she approached the 1-year mark we also switched her to Nutro Lamb and Rice small bites. Both dogs love the food and seem to be healthier!

  • Great Food for picky eaters

    By on

    I have all sizes of sighthounds -- 2 Italian Greyhounds, a Whippet and a Greyhound. They ALL love these Nutro Essential foods. The small bites are great for my Littles, but they're crunchy and size isn't an issue for my 90lb grey. Good clean food that they will eat every time -- and with Chewy, it's a great price too!

  • POODLE APPROVED

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    I have all sizes of poodles, from a 93 pound standard to a miniature who weighs 16 pounds. I recently lost a toy to cancer who also loved this food. it is the only dry kibble that all my adults like. I also rescue and it is this food they go on, gain weight, and can not wait to eat. Each rescue goes home with enough food for at least 2 weeks. I have the information down in a folder and it says, I order from Chewy.Com. I either give them a bag or send them a photo on my iPad. I switch from the salmon to the lamb, these are the dogs favorites. The adult rescues who were neglected gobble this up and gain about 4 pounds a week until they get to a healthy weight.

I love being able to order from Chewy and knowing I'll have it within 3 days. If I have ever had a problem, Chewy knows who I am . I am very satisfied with Chewy. I love I can phone 24 / 7 and someone speaks English to me. ( & understands me) … more

    I finally found this dog food again! When Nutro changed the packaging I was lost. My Sheltie needs this food for her coat and skin, plus the size is perfect. (Small bites). I like that when I order it comes to my house. No heavy lifting from the store.

  • The bowl is licked clean, every time!

    By on

    Our 14 year old Annie acts like a puppy at feeding time. We purchased Nutro's lamb and rice in small and large bites, then mixed them together for her. She really gobbles it all up! We like the natural quality of the food, primarily.
