Product Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 26reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by my 4 dogs on for 3 weeks My dogs absolutely love this and they will even eat it dry without any broth or wet food in it. I switched from a grocery store brand that I had used for years because my beagle had bad red skin on his belly. After a week on this his skin returned to normal and his coat is the shiniest it has ever been.My other dogs coats have greatly improved as well. I highly recommend this formula. September 13, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't switch... I have two English bulldogs and have been using natural choice since we got them! I noticed nutro max at the store and wondered what the difference was cause the price was much lower.... No one at the pet store could really tell me so I compared both bags and seemed very comparable in ingredients. I switched to try save some money but you defiantly get what you pay for! My dogs have gotten sick multiple times and defiantly don't have their nice coat like their used too! I guess it might be a good product if you started it when they were puppies but don't switch from natural choice to nutro max to try and save money and the ingredients may appear to look the same on the bag!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Never Again I have been using Natural Choice for over 6yrs. I noticed a difference in price a yr or so. And didnt correlate that it was different dog food.My Lab was algeric to the MAX product line. I investigated further and noticed that there are the normal Natural Choice and then the MAX product line. I switched back to the Natural Choice (which cost about $20.00 more a bag than MX) from the MAX and all her symptoms went away immediately.Not sure what they do different in the MAX food but it is true here. You get what you pay for!!.My Lab is back to her SOFT coat self now :-). Save your dog some pain and stick with the main Natural Choice line. January 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Affordable nutrition for my dogs Economical nutrition for my yellow Lab, Yukon and my white Min. Schnauser. Both dogs eat this food with relish and maintain their weight, both of my dogs are elderly and remain in good health, hunor and good physical condition. I would, and have recomended this food to friends, and family members. December 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally no more, "What the heck is this?" looks! We have two food-loving huskies, the younger one is an extremely picky and slow (she takes one kibble out of the bowl at a time and places it in her crate before eating it) eater and the older will eat almost anything we put in front of her. Except when we change to a healthier dog food. She will sniff her bowl and then give us this long look before she eats it. I bought Nutro Max when it was on sale and haven't looked back. Not only do they both get excited during meal time, but the younger one actually finishes her food in a timely manner and no more taking one kibble out at a time to eat! December 19, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by No more loose stools We had tired many kinds of dog food and found no relief from loose stools and flatulence for our German Shorthair Pointer. I started reading articles on what to feed and what not to feed your dogs which lead to reading ingredients on the bags of food. All of the article said to stay away from beet pulp and corn.Once we started on the Nutro Max our pooch cleared right up. Our little JRT can't eat anything else or she get diarrhea as well. So we're very pleased.Being a label reader, I see beet pulp in in the list of ingredients now which is suppose to cause GI upset and we don't like that.. I sure hope our pups don't start having problems. November 11, 2011
