Product Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 198reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. June 3, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. May 19, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. May 15, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. May 14, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by New Dog Food We have been feeding Nutro to our dogs for twenty years and with the new changes our dogs are refusing to eat. I'm not sure what the changes are, but I would hate to switch dog food in them after twenty years of loyalty. Where did the gluchosomine go? Any suggestions? May 5, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Only 3 Stars because Let me start by saying, I LOVE this 2 1/2 yr old Black Lab has been on it almost since birth..she has always had good bowel movements and super shiny coat on this food.Which brings me to why I gave this product a 3 star only as It used to come in a 30 lbs bag for good value (by shopping around) and will NOW come in a 25 lbs bag for the SAME PRICE!! So I had to change product in order to fit it in my budget.. this is not the first review that I have come across n this site about Nutro changing their food product by redesigning bags and downsizing!!If you decide to purchase this product, which again has been GREAT, just be prepared to cope with changes made by the brand ...Disappointed customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by He loved it! The first night I fed this to my lab I mixed it 25/75 with his old food as directed, he dug through all of his old food to eat the Nutro Max and then looked around for more before he gave in and ate his old food. He did the same the next night when I mixed it 50/50.I like that it is completely natural with farm raised chicken and whole grains, and no corn, chicken by product or other allergens such as wheat and soy.I will be switching to Nutro Max for good! April 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by We love this food! Our dog CoCo had such a rough looking coat and was very underweight before we switched her over to NutroMax. Now she has such a shiny, soft coat and is at a healthy weight. Before it took her a long time to eat her food, but now, she gobbles it right up before you can blink! I would say she loves it too!
