Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Linda Muse My two dogs lol and my cat loved this food. Both dogs are older like 16 and 18 yrs old. One of my dogs have had his back teeth removed but was so eager to try the new Max natural chicken meal &rice recipe adult. They both have no problem eating the new food. My cat was starting to try and poke her head into the dogs bowls so I had to give her some in she was very pleased with this food also. The food does not smell like regular stinky dog food. I like the fact that it's made with real chicken that makes my fur babies happy to. My dogs had good bowl movements with this food not constipation or diarrhea. This food also helped there coats look and feel so much softer and shiny. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can't wait My little friend was so excited, sniffing away as soon as I brought it in the house. . . I eventually opened the bag and filled her bowl -she ate it all! The pieces are on the bigger side. The food doesn't stink as bad as other food I've bought in the past. I even heard the cat crunchin on a kernel or two. So far my dog seems to be enjoyin the new food. If she continues to love it, I may have to buy it for her. The problem is that this food isn't widely available where I live. .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My dog loves it! We have had the Nutro Adult Chicken dog food for a week now, after receiving a huge bag for FREE and for review thanks to Nutro and Bzzagent.My dog absolutely loves it. It is the perfect size so he can he steady without choking. We have tried a range of different brands and products but always he would leave some food. The ultimate test was when we gave him biscuits today, he ate every bit of the food but left the biscuits! Good boy! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I have nothing bad to say about Nutri Max dog food it all positive things and I would recommend this dog food to anyone looking for a great brand! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Natural and Healthy My 3 dogs loved this Chicken and Rice Recipe. I have tried other Natural dog foods but they would pick certain items from the bowl and leave the rest. I am so Happy I Finally found a dog food that each one of my dogs devoured. No more wasting money on a whole bag of Healthy dog food. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best food for our best friend We tried different foods the first 2 years but we didn't have to look any further, this brand is a keeper. She is an 8 year old black lab and we still get compliments on how pretty and shiny her coat is. She is full of energy and healthy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quality food for my lab mix My dog is high energy and loves her Nutro max chicken. I take for granted how well she does on it. When ever new people meet her they comment on how healthy she looks and how shiny her coat is. She is 6 years old and is mistaken for a 2 or x3 year old. She has been on it since a pup. She was a malnourished rescue when we got her at 6 months. She is thriving on Nutro. It is also great for my wallet......not cheap but not over prices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price, great formula My Pitbull has been on this for a few months and is doing just as good as he was on higher priced natural food. I believe it's economical and doesn't have all the hype ingredients just good nutrition!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reasonably Priced and Nutritous My dogs are happier with this brand! Some of the major brands like Purina has caused my dogs to get sick. As well as they are gassy like other brands can cause! Plus I like that I can buy in Bulk and it doesn't break my bank!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the ONLY food my dog can eat We have tried every brand of dog food out there for our Wesley and this is the ONLY food he can eat. He'd get severely sick from every dog food we've tried and this is the only one he doesnt get sick from. He absolutely loves the taste. Now our other dog will only eat this food, even though she doesnt have the digestive problems that our Wesley has.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my Lab My chocolate lab has a very sensitive stomach and this is the only brand dog food he can maintain. I tried blue diamond dog brands and more. He is very healthy and active now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality at a Great Price! I have been a Nutro dog ever since my mom and dad rescued me at 6 months and I couldn't be happier or healthier! They used to feed me the large breed formula but the kibble was too big and I would choke and have to spit some out every time I ate. The regular adult chicken kibble is perfect and I love it! (My cat likes it too and always tries to steal a bite!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stop changing the bag!! I have used your food for 5 years because our dog seems to do the best on your food with her allergies. I wish when you change the bag you would tell us which one it is replacing. I always send my husband for the "Golden Retriever" bag and now its gone! :( I am hoping this is the food that replaced that old bag. If not, our dog will tell us in a week when she starts scratching her skin off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They Actually Eat It! I feed both my dogs this food. They both eat it with no problem as this used to be a problem I had in the past when trying out other foods. They absolutely love it! and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good dog food for their dog and the price is extremely reasonable! I give it two thumbs up... or should I say 8 paws up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT DOG FOOD I have been using this product for 6 years. This is the best dog food i have ever used. I have a springer spaniel, and i always get compliments on how soft and shiny his coat is, and the energy and overall health he has for a 6 year old springer, I will never use anything but Nutro. And my pet LOVES it as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the coat I have gotten so many compliments on my dogs coat. It is so shiny and soft. When we had him in puppy training they told us to go out and find the food we feed our dog on the shelf and bring back a small bag. The trainer showed us what the first 3 ingredients mean. The first 3 in our Nutro food were not fillers as in the other foods people brought back.Even the vets have asked what I feed him and when I say Nutro they all reply that is why his coat looks so nice. He is a black lab and his fur just shines.It really does matter what you feed your dog or cat. He is a member of our family and want to be sure he is getting the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! When we first adopted our APBT, she had a lot of fur missing and scars on quite a bit of her body. We tried another brand of "good" dog food first and it was ok but nothing spectacular- she looked a bit better than when we brought her home. We then tried a bag of Max and the change in her appearance was amazing. Within a month, her fur grew back in - the only scar visible is the very large one on her head. She is a completely different color- going from a dull grey to a shiny blue/grey and is full of energy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two Happy Dogs I have a medium-sized Pitbull/Boxer, and my brother has a large Black Lab. I have never seen such excitement out of a dog as much as I see it in both dogs when they're about to eat Nutro Max. This is the dog food that I will stick with, as will my brother. It works great for both dogs; my dog is very high energy, while my brother's dog isn't very active. But both dogs love the sound of their food bowls being filled with Nutro Max.
