I have recommend this to all my family that have dogs and they couldnt beleive the differance in there weight and coat in a short period of time. Just wished it came in 50 pound bags. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has excellent features. I got my German Shepherd at 8 weeks old and have tried various foods on her. She didn't seem to like anything I gave her and turned into a fussy eater. My dog is now three years old and I have been using Nutro Max for the past year or two. Since I switched I have noticed a big change in her coat and shedding. After about three months being on Nutro Max her coat is soft and shiny. Not like a typical Shepherd. Her shedding has cut down dramatically also. She just loves the food and I love the effect on her. Thank you Nutro Max. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT DANE APPROVED My Great Dane has used NUTRO MAX ADULT since birth. His growth needs to be as natural as possible and the protein levels in this product are perfect for him or any other large breed dog. I also use the NUTRO MAX LARGE BREED Beef & Rice Dinner..Chunks in Gravy. At 15 months now and 6FT 2in, 215LBS,Hamlet has given NUTRO MAX ADULT his PAW of approval! March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is great for my dog! This product keeps my dog healthy. With the real ingredients it uses, my dog is povided with the nutrition he needs to grow healthy! March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better Nutrition for my big babies. I have two large dogs, a yellow lab and a rotweiller. We adopted the Rotti when he was about 2. He has many health issues. We needed a food that would meet his nutritional needs and was reasonably priced as we spend quite a bit on the several medications he needs. Nutro was recommended to us. Both dogs love it and thrive on it. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Douglas Loves This Food, I LOVE the Price Douglas, a 90 lb active yellow lab, is not hard to please however, he does have a sensitive stomach. I tried many different foods, including the expensive organic kinds, and found that the Nutro Max is his favorite and mine because of all the natural healthy ingredients and less clean up. Nutro Max is also good for Douglas' joints which is so important to me as he is a pure bred lab. And, not only is the price the best price I've found for good dog food but it's sold at my local hardware store which is a hop, a skip and a jump away! Thanks Nutro March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Can't wait till dinner time We have 4 large breed dogs that all love their Max Large Breed Adult food. Luke, our coon hound, used to eat his food one piece at a time, it would take at least 20 minutes for him to finish his dinner. Meanwhile the other dogs would start circling like sharks, hoping to get a few pieces of his food. We switched to Nutro Max and discovered that Luke wasn't a pokey eater, he just didn't like the food. He now starts howling at the sight of the food bowl, and is the first one done with dinner. Thanks to Nutro max, I no longer have to babysit Luke during dinner time. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by I can't even TRY to switch The only time my dog shows disappointment in me is when I try a dogfood less expensive than Max. He usually gobbles down his food immediately, except when I try a switch. Then he'll sniff the food and look up at me without eating. It's the saddest thing. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nutro Max Large dog My dog,is a adopted rescue dog . The humane society fed him Nutro products and it was recommended to continue it. I tried many types but found best Nutro Max adult beef/Large breed,he was sensitive to Lamb/Rice and Chicken formulas which caused a hair thinning. He is now thriving,has a great coat and has grown! March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by I tried switching but... My first 2 dogs, Kelsey & Teddy were always fed Nutros Maxx. When Kelsey passed on, I had to find Teddy a new playmate, hence came my rottie puppy, Jack. I tried starting Jack out on a cheaper brand puppy food, but he wouldn't eat it. He'd sneak over to Teddy's bowl & start eating the Maxx. So I picked up the Maxx puppy food & he loved it! Since Teddy's passing, Lucy came along & I started her out on the maxx puppy food also. Jack & Lucy are now 3 & 4 yrs old, have not eaten anything but Maxx Large Breed food. People have complimented about their gorgeous, shiny coats. I have been feeding my 4 dogs Nutros for a span of over 16 years! I recommend this dog food to everyone! From the mouths of 4 different breed dogs-a Labrador Retriever, a German Shepherd, a Rottweiler, & a large Hound mix- it really is the best March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dogs love Max dog food! I have five dogs that I'm feeding Max Large Breed Adult dog food. Two are labs that will eat anything, one is German shepherd mix, and my other two finicky eaters are an Anatolian livestock guardian and a golden retriever mix. I was tired of trying to coax two of my dogs into eating their food. Since my daughter had the labs on Max Large Breed Adult dog food I decided to switch the other three dogs to it. It is wonderful. Their food dishes are always empty after each feeding, they look healthier, and you could never tell that one dog of the dogs is 12 and another is 13 years old by the way they run and play. I am so glad that I switched to Max Large Breed Adult dog food. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Loved by Saints Lilly, my 6 year old St. Bernard, has always been a "picky eater" . Since switching to Nutra Max she is a member of the "clean the bowl club" on a regular basis. March 10, 2011

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great food for my golden doodle This food is fantastic for my 3 year old golden doodle. His coat is fantastic, he's energetic and he never has any gas. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Lab and I both love it My 3 year old Labrador loves this food - he devours it with vigor and has never had an adverse digestive reaction - even when we switched him to Nutro Max cold-turkey.I like the value and the decreased volume of waste to clean up.I recommend this product to my friends and family as a great alternative to lower-quality "grocery store" dog foods that won't break the bank. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent food very happy to have changed to Nutro Max, my german shepherd loves it, where he was not real crazy about my previous two "high quality" food choices. very reasonably priced, March 9, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is great! I have a German Shepherd and knew the moment I got him, that his biggest problem would be his joints when he got older. I have always used nutro max since he was a puppy. I started out the large breed puppy food, then switching to large breed adult and finally to large breed senior. My dog runs around the house like he is a puppy, but he is really 11 years old. I have friends who had german shepherds and most lived to be like 9-10, but my dog just keeps on going. Granted, I also give him the nutro biscuits for large breed dogs too...fairly regularly, but I do believe that starting out right was a big help. I've used this brand of dog food since the moment I got him and 11 years later, he is still with me and doing great. This product is the best! March 6, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nutro makes him the best dog he can be! I love Nutro Max! I have a big dog that thinks he is a lap dog. Rocky is a white shepard/mixed lab mutt that is 8 years old. Everyone that meets him thinks he is still a puppy & marvels about his beautiful coat. He has been a Nutro dog since he was six months old. He had issues with "growing pains" and the vet recommended Nutro puppy large breed. He had been on a large breed formula before this but the vet called that brand "junk food". After switching brands, we never had another problem. February 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Dog Approves My Dog has been eating Nutro for as long as I've had her. It is well balanced and hasn't given us any problems. My pitbull loves it and your dog will too! February 25, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Love the product. I recently switched over to this food and have noticed great improvements in My Lab's coat and shedding. He also seems to like it a lot better than the other food I was using. February 24, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog loves this food! When we first took our puppy home from the humane society, we started feeding him the standard brand that he was eating there. We were approached by someone in Petsmart who told us all about the benefits of NutroMax. We switched our dog over to that food and we could see a noticeable improvement in his coat and he seemed to really enjoy the food. Now that he is older, we feed him the adult variety and he still loves it. February 24, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cara Ciesielski This is the only food that my Great Dane, Deliliah, can have without getting rashes on her belly. She is allergic to all other foods except the venison and potato. Its a great food. February 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent results! My English Mastiffs are very picky eaters and they LOVE Nutro Max dog food for large breeds. This choice of dog food is great for their health and coats. I highly recommend this food to anyone with large dogs. I won't buy any thing other than Nutro for my pets! February 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by great features my dog loves this food it digest well. his coat is great looking February 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This food is great!!! My APBT's love this food. A friend of mine first suggusted Nutro's Natural Choice to me about 5 years ago because one of my dogs was having skin problems and the vets could not figure out what the problem was. After a couple of weeks of feeding my dog Nutro all the skin problems cleared up. About 2 years ago I spoke to a Nutro representitive in a local pet store, and she suggested Nutro Max to me because of all the physical activies I do with my dog. I think my dogs like the Nutro Max more than the Natural Choice. All in all, Nutro makes get dog food and I love the shiny coat it gives all my dogs. February 23, 2011
