Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product keep my dog very visibly healthy! My baby Saige B, deserves only the best food quality. She is my very best friend, confidant and precious baby. Saige B is 3 years old, she is a Queensland Blue Heeler, she is brindle in color with a beautiful white patch on the front. Saige B is very smart, witty, sweet and loving. She is very quick in speed and has a beautiful glow in her eyes, smile and coat. Her health is pristene. I was introduced to Nutro products when Saige B was 2 months old. I was approached by a product representative in a Petsmart location in Tucson, AZ. It was recommended that I start her on the puppy pouches and small desert tins. She absolutely loves the product. I have periodically tried to supplement a cheaper product when times are tight, but Saige B would rather starve than eat anything else. She always rejects anything that is not Nutro products. She loves the lamb/rice snacks and the mini bones. My Saige B is sometimes called a princess by my friends and relatives because she is fed the "expensive" food. All I can say is that Saige B and her health are worth it! I cannot imagine life without her, I love her so much...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the food for life!!! We just recently got a new Rotti puppy to accompany our current Rotti and Shep/Rotti mix. I decided to start researching what we were actually feeding our children. I was shoked and disguested to find what companys could actually put in dog food and actually get away with!!! Thats when I found Nutro Max. My furry children can't get enough of this food! The are so excited at dinner time and they are happy to finish every last piece of there dinner!!! There coats are gorgeous!! I can't even begin to tell you the number of compliments we get on how good they look and how much more active they are. I never thought that changing there food would be such a great reward not only for them but us as well!!! We started the puppy on Nutro Max Large Breed which has helped her growth tremendously!!!Thank you Nutro Max for the wonderful products you have put out you have a customer for life!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CoCo Loves big dog food I married a year and a half ago. My husband has a 6lb toy poodle named Coco and I have a medium size Brittany Spaniel Mix. My Dog loves the Nutro Max Dog Food and has her own elevated table with her own food dish. Coco decided he was the Alpha Dog and would stand on his hind legs and eat the Nutro Max Dog food from the elevated dish. My dog was not allowed (per Coco) to eat her own food until CoCo was done. Now Coco will not eat his small bread food anymore. He prefers the "Big Dog Food". Funny thing Coco only has about 6 bottom teeth but will eat the Nutro Max anyway. He mouths it until it is soft enough to swallow. We stopped buying two kinds of dog food and let them both eat the same food. The Vet is saying Coco has gained weight so it can't be doing him any harm and he loves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use Ultra I started my dog on Ultra Senior a few months ago and he has done really well on it, and enjoys it also. I was hoping I could review that to enter the contest. I also wanted to ask that more coupons be availalab for this product, as well as some type of discount plan for saving up UPC's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love your product I live in the country and have 9 dogs...several small breeds and the rest large breeds. As any dog owner knows, dogs can be finicky at times with what they eat. I switched to Nutro Max several years ago upon the advice of a Nutro representative at my local pet supply store. All of my dogs enjoy the Nutro Max and finish their meals without any hesitation. They have very healthy coats and are full of energy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Choice! I have two retired racing greyhounds. One came off a track & the other from a puppy farm. I tried a few different dog foods and finally found this perfect fit.My dog's coats are thick, soft and shiny. They are able to digest the food with ease. And, they love it! I can tell by the way they gobble it up.I am so glad I found a dog food that makes my dogs healthy and happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome dog food! When I first got my puppy, I had him on Nutro Natural but when he turned 1 I switched to Nutro Max and couldn't be happier. He is vivacious, energentic and healthy. I wouldn't use anything else. Nutro has all the nutritions and heath benefits I look for in a dog food. Boone is very pleased with the taste as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gassy Dog My English Setter had issues with gas. It was so bad at times that I couldn't stand to be in the same room with her. A stockperson at Petco saw me looking at the dog beano and suggested I try a premium dog food to help her digestion. When I told him I couldn't pay what those foods cost, he took me to Nutro Max dog food. I have been feeding Nutro Max for a couple months and my dog is much nicer to be around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OUr 8 adopted rescue dogs love it. SInce 1993, we have adopted 16 shelter &/or rescue dogs. We began buying Nutro Max Adult for our first one, Buddie. Sadly we have lost some of our pets over these years due to age but we always are open to adopting new members into our pet family. We now have 8 dogs, ranging in size from 11 lbs. to 130 lbs. The smallest is a Jack Russell Terrier (the only pure bred we have) & Lady, our Lab-Great Dane-? mix is our big girl. We continue to feed our loving pets Nutro Max Adult so it would seem that we "all" are satisfied with this product & have been for 18 years. Is this a good review??! We also give products when we can to our favorite rescue group.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs love this brand! We have 2 chocolate labs and they both love this dog food. We sometimes mix it with the Natural Choice Large Breed brand and they love the combo. We love their soft and shiny coats and all the energy they have! They never seem to have dry or irritated skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Girls!! I have 2 very large lab mixes. They have both been on Nutro Max since they were a year old. They have the most beautiful coats that I have seen on any dog, and we do have a lot less waste in the yard. When we pet sit, the guest dogs always want to eat our girls' food at dinner time, and the guest dogs seem upset that my girls won't share!!! I always recomend Nutro!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best food for the best price My German Shorthaired Pointer has a sensitive stomach and it was hard to find a food that he loved and that loved him back. Max not only ensures he licks his bowl clean after each meal, but his skin and coat are in the best condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nutro for all of her life (So far) We have lived with "Jackie" since we adopted her at the Animal Rescue League here on Cape Cod as a puppy. She is a healthy "mixed breed" Lab/Shepard blend now 13 years of age and has eaten nothing but Nutro for all those years, ( save an occaisional treat from the table) She has maintained her weight over the years (You know how important that is to us girls) and has experienced excellant health and has the vigor of a puppy (Just not for as long)..Oh, she has never asked for any other brand than Nutro..Thank you...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rescue dog - Fully changed after MAX We adopted our Beagle mix from a rescue in Fayeteville NC. She had flees, was underweight and we thought she had wired hair. We went ahead and cleaned her up de-fleaced her and started her on NutroMax. 4 years later she is a healthy 28lbs, with super smooth hair and glad to say, Flea free. She happily eats 1 cup in the morning and 1/2 a cup each evening, even jumps up and down doing hop/dance before feeding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product makes Copper's fur shine! We have had our Australian Shepherd for 4 years. We got him when he was a puppy. We started on Nutro Max due to stomach issues in our dog. But soon after we discovered not only the health benefits for his intestinal system but also the way he started to look.His fur actually shines like copper and it feels silky smooth, ALL THE TIME! People we meet are always telling us how soft he feels and asks if we just bathed him. They are shocked when we say NO. We tell them about Nutro Max.Nutro Max is the only food that we will feed to our Coppper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle in a bag My dog absolutely loves this food! The very first day she ate it she licked her bowl clean and than sat there and stared at us just begging for more. This food does all that it promises. After a week n the food my dogs hair was significantly shinier and softer and you could tell a big difference around the house because we didn't have to vacuum as often! I give this food a 15 out of 10 in my book and my dog's!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thumbs up. When I got my black Lab from the breeder, she recommended NutroMax, which I have continued to feed him. Wherever I go with my Lab, people always comments on his beautiful coat. I tell everyone that he eats NutroMax. He loves the food and gobbles down every bite. His waste is never messy and is easy to clean up. I love the special offers and coupons. Nice job, NutroMax.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You are what you eat. When I adopted Marco, he chose Nutro Max over other popular dog foods. He ate Nutro Max every day of his long life. He was 26 years old when he passed; not quite the record for a dog but close. He knew what was good for him. Thanks, Nutro, for all the good years you gave me with Marco.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Miss Mollie has never eaten anything but Max and is healthy and happy. When we go away we bring our food (Max) to the kennel and she is fine. I wouldn' feed her anything else, "Why fix it when it isn't broke?" She has the shiniest coat and everyone remarks on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only the Best Food for the Best Dog! I was put on to the Nutro brand of dog food from the breader I bought my Olde English Bulldog from and I must say that the quality of the food is better than any other Ive ever bought. Your probably saying to yourself, "how do you know how good the quality is? Are you a dog, do you eat the food?" Good question. The reason I know this is because I also have 2 other dogs and ever since I switched to Nutro, they now eat all their food without hesitation. Whereas before, they would just nibble on it throughout the day, never eating it all in 1 sitting. Ive also noticed they don't shed as much and their coats appear to be shinier and more healthy. Nutro is the only brand of dog food I will feed my dogs now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from simply the best i am a dog-lover. that says a lot. mango, my 2-year old lab mix, is my life and i give him only the best. this food is easy to digest, really good for his coat and -apparently- really tasty since he never gets tired of it. I would definitely recommend this brand and im pretty sure i will never switch it for any other one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excited Dog In the past, my dog has seemed a little bored with life, especially when it was food time. We feed her once a day in the morning and she would often just sniff the bowl and walk away. Now, when we let her out in the morning she pees and races back to the house and waits with tail wagging at the food bowl!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dogs love it. Great value and our dogs love it. Keeps their flatulence to a minimum, which is a plus for us!
