Rated 5 out of 5 by April I have a boxer who is 2 years old this is the only food she can keep down. She eats too quick and this food stays down. I will never switch from this food May 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Never switch again to other dog food. I have a dobe and I used to feed with nutro max puppy large breed, he was on a optimun shape then for no reason looking for "better food" switch to science diet then to blue, and now back on nutro max, they love this food look better again better than blue buff, He is more happy better muscle tone and performance, super shine coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great dog food I've been feeding my dogs Nutro Max since 1999. My 12 1/2 yr old shepherd mix will guard the bag every time until it gets put into the container! We just adopted a new puppy and immediately switched him over to Nutro Max Large Breed Puppy. It's an excellent food and our animals love it! April 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy pet parents We have a 1yr old lab and a 5 yr old lab/mix and they were previously on a cheaper dog food. We switched to this food about 1 month ago and we have seen a tremendous amount of good differences in both of them. They both now have shinier coats, less bowel movements and seem to be more filled out. We also like how cost effective it is to buy, and that it already has glucosamine in it. We will be staying with this product for sure and have recommended it to others :) January 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Eat Right! We switched from Nutro Max to another brand and boy was that a mistake!! Our dog has a beautiful coat but not like it was on Nutro Max Adult. Also, we saw a change in bowl movements and her eating habits, seemed like she was always hungry even after eating the correct amount of food. We went back to Nutro Max and we will not be switching again. This is a great, quality dog food at an amazing price. Thank you for producing such a great product for my furry, loved family member!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT food!!! This is an amazing product! I have an 8 year old AmStaff that is a rescue with quite a few issues--filed down front teeth, malnutrition for the first 7 years of her life, etc. When I adopted her she was being fed another (cheaper) brand of food full of fillers and all the other crazy stuff no one should be eating, and weight 63lbs. All her ribs were showing, she often wouldn't eat, she had no energy and her coat was horrible. I switched her to this food (Nutro Max Large Breed Adult) and she is thriving! She's at her ideal weight, her coat is phenominal, she loves the food, and the best part is that her poo is solid and much easier to pick up. I tried to switch her to the Senior, but she loves this one SO much that we will stick with this for the rest of her life and just give her supplements as needed. I can feed her less than with the cheaper brands so the bag lasts longer and the price is wonderful too (around $30 for a 30lb bag that lasts me at least a month).Thank you Nutro for making an AFFORDABLE, healthy, all-natural food that my dog loves!

Rated 5 out of 5 by great quality, excellent price i have a 3 year old GSP for his first couple of years i was using high end food like blue buffalo but he was very gasy, so i moved down to a lower end food and got nature's recipe but he was still very stinky so my friend recommended Nutro and he is not stinky at all, his coat his beautiful, and his stoll is not messy at all. i love this food. great quality at an excellent price!i have noticed too that alot of large breed dog food makes small pebble like food, but not nutro and i love that! it makes my dog eat slower!
