Product Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 26reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ideal For Improving Coats I am a breeder of show Beagles, and Nutro has long since been my "show food". A few years back, when a popular brand around the show circuit downgraded its formula, my dogs stood out quite startlingly from the hounds eating the other brand, and I was frequently asked what coat supplements and chalking products I was using to keep coats so dense, soft and their white areas so vivid. No one could believe my dogs were eating a steady diet of Nutro Max, and nothing else.Dogs not being actively shown were always on a rotation of pricy holistic feeds, and when the show dogs were put on these supposed 's star' diets, their coats inevitably went to pot. So I recently switched everyone to Nutro Max Lamb & Rice, which not only saves me between $15-20 per bag as opposed to the other foods, I am astounded how drastically coats have improved! I also notice a healthy change in their energy levels - no more doggie sugar rushes and intense bursts of hyperactivity followed by crashes. They have even activity levels throughout the day, and I know that means Nutro is a meat based, healthy food. I now recommend this shamelessly to anyone who will listen. September 6, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for Sensitive stomachs I have a Boxer which are known for their Flatulence. My wife and I feed our dog Nutro Max and do not have any problems with our dog and his temperamental digestive system. We are very happy with the results we have seen with Nutro. Almost every time we walk him we get compliments on his coat. The credit goes to the food. Nutro Lamb and rice, is an all around great dog food. August 16, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nurto Max is the best for my dogs! I have a Norwegian elkhund who came from the breeders with a kidney disease, and she does well on Max rice and lamb recipe. I have a lab. who has a sensitive stomach. Both of my dogs perform well, they maintain a healthy look, weight and coat on this food. I have tried other food when they were puppies, but Nutros Max is the best for my dogs! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is a good value. I feed my 3 year old Mini schnauzer 1 1/2 cups per day. Since I switched to Nutro he has lost a few pounds he needed to lose and his energy has skyrocketed. The lamb and rice formula is great for his somewhat sensitive stomach and his coat looks rich and shiny. I highly recommend this product. February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dogs luv it I have four dogs, they love Nutro Max, I just brought a new bag home tonight and they could smell it from our closed plastic container, they went to thier empty bowl and was hitting it so we would feed them. I like how thier coat feels and looks and the energy they have. I also like it because a bag last about 3 weeks and that's great for 4 dogs. With 4 dogs they can generate alot of doggie duty but with the Nutro Max they seem to duy less. I have been buying and using the product for over a year now, I do try other foods but always come back to nutro because the dogs do so much better on it and in the long run it ends up costing less than the stuff I buy in the stores. I like that it has an oily coating it seems good for the dogs skin and stomachs. I do have one dog with allergies and while she isn't 100% on nutro she has less symptons that many other more expensive products I've tried. I like for my dogs to eat well and I know with nutro they will get it. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nutritious and delicious Our 14 year old terrier mix, Lucky is an energetic boy who has enjoyed Nutro Max Lamb and Rice since he was a pup. His brother, a bruising, brute 4 year old shepherd mix is right there with him, trying each night to steal a few precious tidbits of anything Lucky misses. Whenever I bring a new bag home, the dogs start barking and don't stop until I throw them a piece or two. We know Nutro's Lamb and Rice is nutritious and according to our dogs, it's also delicious.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value And Quality We have been feeding our dogs Nutro dog food for over 10 years. We recently began using the Adult Lamb Meal & Rice formula with great results. Our dogs love it and the quality of the ingredients keeps them looking great and in good health. Many people will ask us what supplements or shampoos we use to get their coats loking so full and shiny and our answer is nothing but Nutro dog food and baby shampoo! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is great I love Nutro for my dogs, because it is all natural with no additives and they love it. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Quality I have always used Nutro for all my pets and always will it is a great quality kibble with no filler and by products. It is a great food for a great value. Thank You Nutro for keeping my Maggie and Rocky's bellies full and satisfied. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog loves this food. This product has been great for my dog. I switched from Max puppy to this brand and did not experience any negative side effects in my dogs digestive system. She still scarfs this food down as fast as she did her puppy food. The size of the bites are perfect since she doesn't chew her food very well. They also fit great in her food dispensing ball toy which we use every day. I have never noticed bad breath in my dog and she is easy to clean up after. I would recommend this product. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Dog Food Love this dog food. It helps my dogs allergies and the coat is super shiny. I would recommend this food to anyone without hesitation. Reece, my Norfolk terrier, also loves it! He rushes to dinner time. February 17, 2011

Rated 5 out of 5 by Affordable Alternative for a Sensitive Eater Our bulldog, like many bulldogs, has food allergies. Early in her life she had such bad reactions to the food that she was being fed that her skin was in pretty bad condition. After she was moved to a new home she was put on a lamb and brown rice formula from another, much more pricey, brand and it did her wonders. When she came to live with us we continued to feed her that same food but as their prices started to go up and up we started to look for alternatives. There are several other brands that carry lamb and brown rice formulas but they still contain other 'by products' and any time we tried to start her on any of those foods there was an immediate negative reaction.I decided to try Nutro Max after searching the web for coupons. Not only did she take to it right away (apparently it must taste better!) but when using the 7-day switch plan printed on the back of the bag she never had any sort of "switch over" reactions that can sometimes be expected (gas, changes in bowels, etc.) She loves it, she never turns down a meal and I would say I've seen an improvement in the shine of her coat since we've switched over as well, which is an unexpected bonus.I love Nutro Max Lamb Meal & Rice recipe (and so does our bulldog!) and would definitely recommend it to anyone, especially those with pups with sensitive tummies.

Rated 4 out of 5 by our dogs love it We have 3 dogs who are picky eaters and all 3 love Nutro Max February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Picky Eaters Cant get enough I am a dog boarding and grooming facilty owner as well as an Alaskan Klee Kai breeder. I have very picky eaters in my Itzy Bitzy Clan pack, and from the very moment I added this to their dish they went NUTS! I am already seeing tear stains clearing up, and cannot wait to see what it does for their coat.My 7 year old Alaskan Klee Kai was looking depressed, lost his energy and didnt have the same pep he once showed as a puppy.After two weeks of being on the Nutro Max, he is running every where, he is smiling, happy and BOUNCY again! He has his pep back in his stride!!I was previously feeding them Nautral Balance varities, and am already glad I tried this out. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by IT 'STOPS' SHEDDING Our Spaniel/Terrier mix's shedding was making a mess out of our house and our clothes. We couldn't wear black pants and certainly couldn't walk around in black socks. There was just too much dog hair everywhere. We even bought a ROOMBA (a motorized device) to supplement our vacuum which was overloaded with dog hair. Then we were recommended to MAX Lamb and Rice. It was so effective that , 4 bags later, its still our dogfood of choice. Now I can wear black pants, sit on the floor and even walk barefoot, without picking up an extra coating of dog hair. Thank you. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is great for dogs with tender tummys I have boxers which are notorious for having really tender tummys. I was struggling to find a good fit for my dog Maddox. Either the food would make him sick or it was too expensive for me to buy so often. My dad got me hooked on Nutro Max. It is at a great price point, and Maddox rarely had any stomach problems. I was thrilled when the Lamb and Rice came out because he got even better. SInce using Nutro Max I have got two more boxers. They both started with Nutro Max Puppy and are now on to Nutro Max Lamb and Rice. Nutro Max is a great product and I will continue to feed my dogs this product and recomend it to others. Thanks Nutro! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shiny Coat!!!! I always used the same brand of dog food for my 4 year old black lab mix and began noticing a decline in the health of my dogs skin and coat. He was itching alot and had a weird smell that would not go away even after bathing. I went to the pet store and was given a coupon to try this brand of dog food and was guaranteed a difference in the dogs coat within 6 weeks. I began noticing a huge improvement in less than 3 weeks and the problem was totally gone by the 6th week. I have used this food ever since and am very grateful. I get compliments from family members who haven't seen the dog in a while. They say how great his coat looks. It is very shiny and looks great! No more smell, itching or flaky skin. Thank you Nutro for your quality, affordable product! February 17, 2011
