Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scarf, Scarf and Gone! I purchased this dog food for my other dog Puddles in another city I lived in last year. They had a incentive program. If I purchased so many bags I would get one free. So I was tempted by the special price, the incentive program and my dogs itching.I do not think my dog Panda liked the food at first but Puddles ate it so fast that there was nothing left.If she waited puddles would eat her food too. I never got my free bag of food from the incentive program as they changed the price of the food and it was then out of our price range. Puddles liked it.. thanks =)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs love this stuff. I have three dogs ranging from a Yorkie to a Lab and all enjoy the Nutro Max adult food. We have tried other dog foods in the past but the best by far is Nutro. The price will not break the bank and I like knowing all the nutrition is there that my dogs need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nutro makes my dog feel and look better! Our dog's name is Max. We think its ironic that this food is called Max, we really think they named it after him because it is without a doubt the best food for him!He is a shepard mix, many people think he looks like a Pit Bull, but we will leave that alone...Anyway, for his first few years we really struggled with finding him a dog food that would be easier on his stomach. In other words, we wanted to turn his droppings from soup to soilds. Our Vet said he was fine, he just had a sensitive stomach and we would need to try different dog foods. He suggested we try the pet stores. I didn't want to spend the extra money for "dog food" so we tried many kinds of grocery store varieties, only to no avail. Some foods made him sick immediately some periodically. We wanted a permanent fix. So that's when we started to try the food from the pet stores. We tried a couple on the cheaper side with the same results. Then I talked to a "Pet Food Specialist" at the local pet store and she recommended Nutro Max Beef and Rice. I was not impressed with the price but we reluctantly tried it anyway.We saw an immediate improvement. He had solids! Then we bought another bag and another bag and soon we realized we had found a winner! You see, we live in a condo comunity and we are required to pick up the droppings-and as you can imagine, this makes it so much easier! We also noticed he was eating more of his food per sitting. He usually eats all the food in his dish, even to this day. So he still likes it after about five or six years now.Another major thing I was really impressed with was, after about a month or so, the improvement in his skin and his coat. Virtually all the dander was gone and his coat is so much softer. He also stopped scratching himself so much and there is a lot less sheading.Not long ago, I was standing in line waiting to pay for a new bag of Nutro Max at the pet food store. A "Specialist" from Nutro came over to greet me and thank me for purchasing the product, I told her we have buying it for years now and I told her this story. She asked how old Max is and I told her he is 11 years old now. She suggested we try the Nutro Senior formula because its better for older dogs. My dog is still pretty active and not showing many signs of age. I am still thinking about trying it but a part of me figures "if its not broken-don't fix it" but I am thinking maybe it wouldn't hurt to try it. If it was any other product or company I would say NO WAY! But I feel comfortable enough with Nutro, so we will try it when its time to buy more. I figure if I get any improvement in results with the Senior food, it will be worth it. That's the point of me writing this very review, I was so reluctant to spend this kind of money on "dog food" initally, but after seeing the results-it is MORE than worth it! And my dog is worth it too! If you are a little unsure about spending the extra money, try it anyway! If you get the kind of results we did-we think you will be glad you did. Whenever it comes up in conversation with other dog owners, I tell everyone about Nutro! Thanks Nutro!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dog loves this brand I have been buying this dog food brand for about two years from my local feed and pet supply store and my dog loves it! It has to be one of the best nutritional feeds out there; the only deterant i have had recently is the fact that it went up $10 in price... But i continue to buy it anyways based on the feedback i recieve from my dog. Since he is a pure bred boxer he has a sensitive stomach and this is one of the only feeds he can eat without diarhea; and it definately provides him the required nutrients and protien required to build powerful lean muscles.5 out of 5 no exceptions

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs love the beef formula. I have two dogs, Clancy a 5 year old Irish Setter and Molly a six year old English setter. We live in the mountains and have 2.4 acres. The dogs have a large fenced in area, with lots of room to run. Both have a lot of energy and when I get home from work we take an hour hike.Clancy has always loved the beef dry food, and Molly we got from a rescue group when she was 2 1/2. We got her on the food as soon as we got her.Clancy also runs along with my husband when he mountain bikes, hislongest run was 25 miles. I feed them in the morning and early everning.They get into each others bowls, Clancy gets more cause he a larger dog,I love the product and so do they!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! My boxer LOVES this dry food. When I pour the bag into our food bins, he stands by, begging for a few kernels to fall on the floor so he can have some!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big and small, they love it all I have a 50 lb mixed breed dog and a wired hair Jack russell. My dogs are grazers, which means I can fill their bowl and they nibble all day long . Vets hate that I do that for fear of over eating and over weight, but with this product, they snack , and maintain a perfect weight. I have been feeding them for years this way.At one time I had two 50lbs dogs and a Jack and Nutro made feeding them a good product very affortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST DOG FOOD THERE IS! We began using Nutro a year ago when we got our puppy, a mini schnauzer named Toby. I had heard a lot of great things about Nutro and thought this would probably be the best food for him. He did great on the puppy mix and transitioned into the adult variety very easily. Around Toby's first birthday my husband and I heard about an adult dobermann who was very much needing to be rehomed. We weren't sure how a full sized male dog and our little schnauzer would get along but decided to bring the dobie, Hank, home for the weekend on a trial run. The two dogs hit it off immediately. We knew right away Hank was now a part of our family. Hank however was in a very poor state of health. He was nearly 3 years old and obviously of tall stature for a dobermann yet only weighed in at 60lbs. To put it bluntly, he was skin & bones. We started him on Nutro the first night he was with us and continued giving him 6-7 cups a day in an effort to put some weight on him. 2 months later this dog is nearly 80 lbs and the picture of perfect health for a dobermann. We were told when we got him he couldnt seem to keep weight on and could eat and eat all day long. I think all he needed was food with a little substance. Now that he is at a stable weight he has been cut back to 5 cups and is having no trouble maintaining. He has come out of his shell and has proved to be a great addition to our family. I only wish I could post pictures with this review so you could really see the effect this food had on Hank's health. Thank you for making such a quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used this product for years Our dog has a very sensitive stomach. After trying numerous brands, Nutro Max seems to be the only one she can eat. Our small dog now wants to fight her for it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more gas.... We have an american bulldog with a VERY finicky stomache. Everything we fed her just gave her gas! Not only was it disgusting to smell but it was an embarrassment to have people over to our home. I had heard this was a common problem with bulldogs but until it happens to you, you have no idea how horrible it is!After trying several different brands/flavors of dog food we finally found one that worked. I highly recommend Max adult beef & rice to those of you with the same problem.Our dog is happier, we are happier & our house once again smells like home instead of a dirty, smelly dog kennel.Signed,No more gas masks in Idaho
