Large Breed Adult Recipe is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 1084.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It We have fell in love with the dog food over the last two years. We use to feed our dog's the lamb , then switched to chicken. We have a pit boxer and a Sheppard mix. They absolutely love the switch wasn't explosive at all lol. Their breath smell great. Coat is flawless, but all of a sudden Max® started becoming so small! The size of the bag, I mean. Lol and it's a bit pricy too now. All I'm saying is I love the food. It's being voted as ridiculous nowadays but I Love it. And the wagg monsters do too :) . But please give us the 40lb bag back. Lol at least for the holidays. D:

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Price Increase/Shrinking Bags is ridiculous I've been feeding my dogs Nutro Max for 10 years. Over that time they've "reformulated" 2x. I've never noticed anything about the food changing other than the size of bag offered. First it went from 40lb to 35lb, then from 35lb to 25lb!? Really?! As a household that has 3 large dogs, it is getting ridiculous trying to keep dog food in the house with these lame 25lb bags. YES we see you've raised the price. NOW PUT OUT A 40lb BAG!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased! I am a proud dobie mom of a 5 month old girl. Since we love our only girl so much I was excited to try Nutro for the first time since I have heard great reviews. We started her on another healthy brand but due to protein overload we had to switch and find something for her health and her bones. Nutro max large breed has made an almost instant difference and we had no issue switching her over. I don't even mind paying the price as long as she is healthy and happy

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed with the change. I have been using your food since 1994. I have always had two large breed dogs and have always been happy with the product, until recently. The size change makes a big difference when you are feeding two large dogs. At this point we are considering moving to something else.A few years ago I would have given the product 5 stars hands down. With the continued price increase (smaller bags) the best I can do is 3 maybe 2.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Shopping Around We have been feeding our 3 labs and our pit bull Nutro Max for 2-3 years after our yellow lab had stomach issues with our old food. We love the food and all our dogs have shiny coats and great teeth. The change to the bag size from 30 pounds to 25 for the same price is very disappointing. Having 4 large dogs we use a good amount of food and having to buy it in smaller bags is frustrating. We prefer the larger bags for storage reasons and paying the same price for less food is not okay. We will be shopping around to see if we are ready to make a change. Very disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Use to be a loyal customer My Great Dane/St Bernard has been on this food since she became an adult dog 4 years ago. I would rate it much higher, but unfortunately, the new changes have left me quite disappointed! You made the new bags smaller and the price the same. Did you think customers wouldn't notice 5 lbs? Well, we are noticing!I am having to buy more often. This was not a wise thing to do to your loyal customer base. It is a good food, but not worth paying more for less food. I will be switching to be better in line with my budget. When feeding bigger breeds, value is important and yes 5 lbs is a big difference. Check your price Nutro.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cost I have been a loyal consumer of Nutro products as my adult dog has a food allergy and this has helped with his coat and skin related to the allergy. We have switched our other 2 animals (1 puppy and 1 cat) to this brand now and have to buy 3 separate products and also treats. I love this food for my pets. I am however, a little disappointed in the new changes such as 25# bag at the same price as 30# bag. It may be time to switch brands to fit in the budget.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Changes caused issues Been loyal costumer for 8 years, our black lab loved nutro max! When Nutro changed formulas, we had to search for a new food. The new food caused stomach issues for our dog, considering switching back now that we realized changes were made for new bag look, and less amount per bag at same price point.
