Rated 5 out of 5 by Improved Coat and Skin I adopted a Rhodesian Ridgeback mix from an Animal Shelter on July 31st and have had him on the Nutro Max Adult Active Breed since then. I have seen a significant difference in his coat and skin, he went from dry, flaky skin with a thin dull coat to a nice healthy, thicker coat. No more dry skin and his coat is very shiney. He is very active, jogs with me three times a week plus lots of walks and is in great shape, solid muscle. February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy transition from Puppy to Adult When we set out to adopt a puppy, we knew we wanted a large breed. We found Sadie at the Franklin County Animal Shelter in Columbus, Ohio. She was a 6-week old black lab/black shephard mix. Her siblings were all available and we took each for a "test drive" and chose her. Sadie weighed 10lb when we adopted her on 8/31/09. We immediately began feeding her Nutro Puppy formula and kept her on it for about 15 months. By December (she was 5mos old), she weighed 75 very healthy pounds. Her transition into Active Adult formula was very easy. We mixed the remainder of her puppy food with the new bag of Active Adult and she devoured the bowl. Sadie is now 1-1/2 years old and has never had table food and does great with her exclusive Nutro diet! She teeters between 72 and 80 lbs and is the light of the Vet office eyes when she comes in. We would never consider another brand of food, as we get complimented on her clear eyes, shiny coat, and great disposition (although the puppy in her is still rampant!!). Glad this was our choice right out of the gate!! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog never gets enough of this food. My dog really enjoys this pet food. He can eat it mixed with wet food, or dry as a snack. He loves it just as much as his special dog treats and people food. This food leaves him with a shiny coat and it is gentle on his sensitive stomach. February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by What a transformation in my dog! I started feeding this product to my long haired German Shep looking for SOMETHING to control his out of control shedding, itching and dull ugly hair coat. By the end of my first bag my dog's shedding was noticeably reduced. After 4 years on it now he has a GORGEOUS hair coat and I break out the vaccume about 1/10 as much as I used to. This is a marvelous product, to take my skinny wiry haired shepard and turn him in the magnificent animal he is today. LOVE it! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by this product is perfect for my dogs i rescue abandoned and abused dogs. i use to buy different brands of dog food. one for my personal dogs who are seniors. another for my over-weight dogs. then several different brands for my rescued dogs. one day at petsmart a nutro representative gave me some coupons and i tried nutro. now it is the only brand i use. it has everything my dogs need. the puppy formula is excellent for puppies that are malnourished and have been eating garbage. my personal dogs love the senior and overweight formulas. all my dogs love nutro. i'll never switch dog foods again. February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by dogs really love this food I was using another over the counter product that did not control the shedding problem. I also had dogs that had mutiple bowel movements. both issues have been reduced. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nutro Max is the best ever. My dog shilo was flown to Oregon from Kansas to a pet store in Portland. When I first saw him and took him out of his cage, he kissed me on the nose and I knew he was mind. I purchased him and took him home. The pet store wasn’t sure what he would eat, so I did some research and found the breeder and called him and he said he feeds all of his puppies Nutro Max. Shilo is 5 years old next month and to this day he has eaten Nutro Max. We have had no stomach problems or gas with him. He has done very well on his diet of Nutro Max. He eats no other kind of food. You can try and give him doggie bones or something different and he will not eat it. His teeth are in very good shape and hasn’t had any dental work done as of yet. The vet said his teeth are in good shape. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog is healthy! I love Nutro Max because it allows my dog to eat a healthy, high-quality pet food without breaking my budget. My dog loves the food and she is very healthy from years of eating Nutro Max. Her coat is shiny, her nose is wet, and her eyes shine, all due to a healthy diet. I would never go back to the grocery store brands of dog food. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by my dogs love it!!!!! I have 4 dogs, boxer, 2 daschands, and a corgi...they don't agree on much except they all love Nutra MAX. Chicken is the favorite, but they all love it all. It's amazing to know they all eat it like it's home cooking. I was tempted to try a kibble...LOL February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our dog loves the taste of this food We first tried this food at my mom's, and every time he goes there he still tries to feed himself straight from the bag. We have to keep it in a sealed container at home so he doesn't eat the whole bag at one time! With his old food, he would leave behind anything that fell out of his bowl; now, he comes looking for more. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by good for both ends and the middle. zuriel is an adopted mastiff-rittweiler at a very active 120 lbs Nitro works well.both my rotts are large.with NITRO I dont need to feed them as much as i did with the old brand .There energy and coats are fantastic.and on the far end stool cleanup is a lot easer than it had been before i changed to NITRO.I did a lot of research before I went to NITRO. I want the best I can find for my dogs. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent choice Excellent choice for active dogs with allergies and sensitive systems. Since my dogs have been on this food their coats have been shinny, they have been extremely active, and have no problems digesting this food. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Gang and "Max" Dog Food I have an unusual job, I travel nation wide and do doggie seminars with my 2 pooches. We just finished 10 days at the Eastern Sport Show where I did seminars and my dogs Rommel and Ava were the stars.When picking a food I did a ton of research. My dogs are required to be alert for demos any time of day that we are scheduled. It can be tough on a dog traveling and living in motels. .I also want a super haircoat on my dogs. Tons of folks pet them and they need to be soft, not shed and shine in the spotlights. So MAX was the food I picked for them. And ya know has passed all expectations I had for the food. My dogs shine, keep great weight and eat it all the time no matter where they are fed. So thanks I feel good about feeding my dogs MAX. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Would not change it for other We have 7 dogs at our home ~ 5 of them are Siberian Huskies, as you know they can shed a lot. Since we started feeding our dogs 6 years ago with Max Adult Dog food, not only their coats have improved but they barely shed. I will not buy another brand of food for nothing in this world, if I can't find it at the store that I usually go to, I'll go to another store and purchase it. My dogs are worth driving the extra miles! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just got this brand and my Chow loves it. Just git this brand and my Chow loves it. Nice big chuncks for her. I will get it again for her, Thanjk you so muuch!! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My 3 pups love this food! When my wife and I got our first puppy, we didn't know what to look for in food. We tried a couple of foods, but still were not satisfied that our puppy was eaten the right thing.When we went to Petsmart one day, a Nutro rep was there and we decided to speak with her. She told us about the different nutrients within the food, so we decided to give it a try. Seven years later, and now the parents of 3 great dogs, we are still feeding them this product and they love it! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product My breeder uses this product and so we just continued when we picked up our puppy. We have been using it ever since. Zoey dives right in! She likes it. We like it too. It makes her coat very shiny and smooth. I would recommend it to anyone. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dogs love this dog food Nuto has developed a great dog food. It is balanced and really has inproved my dogs coat and skin. I have a black Lab and a boxer mix. Since I switched to Nutro Max, the shedding is only seasonal instead of daily. My dogs love the taste. I mix it with a little warm water to make a nice gravy. Both my dogs get a lot of exercise and Nutro Max keeps them fit and trim. My vets says Nutro Max is a good high end formula dog food. My dogs are part of my family pack and I feel Nutro Max is the best formulla to meed their nutritional needs. Thanks Nutro. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easily Digested & Less To Pick Up Outside I have 4 dogs ranging in age and size (2 Shih Tzu's, 1 large Lab mix and 1 small Dachshund/Chihuahua mix - we think!) and we feed all of them the same Nutro Max Adult food. Although they each should get their own type of food, that's just not afforable and they eat each other's food anyway, and I have found that the Nutro Max Adult doesn't upset their stomachs and each of them likes the taste. (And there really is less "to scoop!") February 17, 2011
