Rated 5 out of 5 by Good food This product has the best ingredients and nutrition for both my great dane and my lab (who has a sensitive stomach). They both love it! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our dogs LOVE nutro and so do we!! We have 2 St Bernards, Korbel, 190 and Fiona 165. Needless to say we go through A LOT of dog food!! The Nutro Large breed Max is wonderful. The clean up after our dogs is very easy, their stool is formed and easy to pick up because of their food! Their coats are shiny and they are healthy!! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by The quality of ingredients is wonderful. My yellow lab just loves this food! It must taste wonderful, I also use it for treats when we are working on training. I feel so confident giving it to her because of the quality of the ingredients in it. I have to be concerned about the joints in this breed and the natural sources of Glucosamine and Chrondroitin give me the confidence that I am giving her the right product. My dog Ginger is in training to be a therapy dog, so I must keep her in good shape - Thank You Nutro! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good chow for the BIG BOYS (and girls) Good size pieces that dogs like...... better than small like pebble-like pieces that get stuck in the jowls. And end up all over the floor.My 2 Newfoundlands love it. Nutro Max is kept in a plastic bin and they are ofter seen with their heads in the bin stealing food.They are either hungry, simply love the food or just plain BAD DOGS. February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by All my dogs like it I have eight dogs, all different sizes. I feed them all Nutro Max Adult. They all like the food and are doing well on it. They all seem happy and healthy. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Try it !! Your dog will love it !! There are not many kinds of dog food out there that you can use as a treat too!I have a 2 yr.old Yellow Lab named Bella. Of course, she's the smartest, kindest, most loving pet any owner could have. Bella is incredibly healthy and very happy, partly because she looks forward to dinner. All I do is fill her bowl, get a nice splash of hot water and mix. That's it. Before you can wash off the spoon and turn around, she's done! When bella goes outside and comes back in, she knows she's going to get a treat. I don't worry about having Milk Bones on hand because she is perfectly happy to do tricks for her Nutro Large Breed food. I can give it to her one at a time or by the hand full. I know she can have as much as she wants because it's good for her . It gives me piece of mind knowing this food is naturally formulated to provide healthly skin, hair and joints. Clean up in the yard is easier too! She not eating junk, therefore she not going as frequently. I could go on and on about Nutro's food. Bottom line, feed your dog this food and when your dog wants a treat, grab a handful and give a treat he or she will truly enjoy. And you will enjoy giving it to them because you are doing whats right for them! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Absolute Best! Our family includes three large dogs; a German Shorthaired Pointer - 72lbs, a Golden Retreiver - 85lbs, and a Search and Rescue Bloodhound - 95lbs. We've been feeding our crew Nutro Max Large Breed Adult since they graduated from Puppy formula and couldn't be happier. Our vet always comments on their healthy coats and weight. We love Nutro Large Breed Adult for the benefits it has for their hips and joints and they seem to love it for the taste. We even use this product as treats for training between feedings.By following the recommended feeding portions, all three of our dogs maintain a healthy weight for their build and have loads of energy. I work in Animal Welfare and do Search and Rescue with my canine partner, our bloodhound. I've researched the best nutrition for my dog and I feel confident I'm giving him everything he needs to perform well on a search by feeding him Nutro! I'd recommend Nutro Max to anyone looking for quality nutrition for their pet or service dog. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Dog Food On The Market We picked up our amazing dog, Deuce, at the local pound. He was approximately a year old and was slightly skinny. At the recommendation of a friend, we purchased our first bag of Nutro Max Large Breed, thinking that if we fed him right, he would fill out to be the "large breed" we knew was hiding inside. Within two months we could see a difference in our Deuce. His black coat shined in any light and he chased us down on our mountain bike rides during summer. People stop us on the street to ask what kind of breed he is and comment on how gorgeous his coat is. Our skinny pound puppy has turned out to be the best dog we've ever owned and is the perfect addition to our family. Because of our wonderful experience with Deuce and Nutro Max, we went up to the pound again last fall and got him a brother, Vegas. We now go through approximately 2 bags of Nutro Max a month, but these boys are beautiful and strong. So worth it. Thanks Nutro. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gives my dogs a nice, shiny coat. I have two dogs and everyone comments about how shiny and soft their coats are. I really like to pet them just so I feel their soft, smooth coats. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog loves Nutro Max My dog has been eating Nutro max for about seven years and still loves it.His coat always looks good and many people ask me how old he is and can't believe he is eight years old. He still plays like a puppy and loves to run and swim. My Vet says Nutro Max is good for him and to stay with it. We love him and want whats best for him so we will continue to feed him Nutro Max. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This Product is wonderful Our Siberians are very healthy because of Nutro Max food. Their coats are beautiful and they sure look forward to lunch time now. They use to not want to come in to eat but now they run to their dishes. I am very pleased with this food and would recommend it for all dogs. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Keeps My Dogs Running! Nutro Max dry dog food really has kept my two girls running...circles around me. They really like the taste too. I used to have to mix canned food in with the dry food when I used another brand. When I switched to Nutro Max, the dogs ate it up before I could get a can open. They're healthy, at a good weight, they don't shed as much as they used to and I can tell they really enjoy it. I highly recommend making the change to Nutro Max. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Scout & Bear become super heros on Nutro Max Scout & Bear, my adopted black labs, love Nutro Max chicken recipe so much that they open the closet and sneak it from the bag. I 'm always getting compliments on how shiny their coats are and how healthy they appear, whenever we're out walking or at dog parks or beaches. Scout is so energetic on Nutro Max that she's taught her sister how to jump 8 foot fences. So my now indoor dogs have daily jogs and outrun me! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Nutritional Product My son's pitbull, Darkness, enjoys this food more the past brand, Science Diet. He is a black dog and his coat shines from this food and I believe this food provides good nutrition for a healthy, lively dog. Hhe loves to run through the woods and plays effortlessly. I believe this is a good product and would highly recommend it to others with large breed dogs. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dogs really love it I was skeptical, going from a Vet recommended and much more expensive dog food to Nutro Max. In the past every time we switched food, our dogs did not like it.We have the added benefit that one of our dogs has a recurrent ear infection that antibiotics was not really helping. Now, on Nutro Max, it is almost cleared up.What more can I ask for, a dog food my dogs like and keeps them healthy. Bonus. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is great This is the perfecy food for my 115lb american bulldog. He is healthy, and active. He doesnr have yo eat as much as lower cost food because theingredients are for the animal and not just filler. That also produces less solid waste due to the fact that it is not a bunch of filler. I have fed hank this for 3 years nd have had wonderful results. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My "girls" love this and so do I I have a German Shepherd/Chow mix who is 15 years old (Sugar) and a Border Collie (Jessie) who is 6 years old. They were both rescued so these ages are just estimates.I have always given them (and all my other dogs) Nutro Max and they all have been very healthy. Sugar has had 8 teeth removed (not caused by the Nutro Max) and has NO problems chewing the Nutro Max. And Jessie just loves it.I would recommend ANY of the Nutro products to anyone. We also give them the Nutrro TreatsThank you for such great tasting and healthy products. Keep up the good work! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lab loves it My chocolate lab has many food allergies. Mainly he is lactose intolerant. He is on the third 35 lb bag and he has had no problems. He is slimmer, his teeth look whiter, his coat is shiny and he has more pep. We were feeding him one of those expensive dog foods from a health food store. He came down with kidney stones that required expensive surgery is the reason we decided to to switch. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great food, great company My 7 year old Doberman's coat has never looked better we get compliments every time she is out. She has endless energy and is as youthful as she was when she was pup. The food is a great value and has brought my dog nothing but good health. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by I would recomend this product. All 6 of my weimaraners eat this food. I get comments on their coats all the time, they are shiny, not oily. Their weight is perfect. Meat being listed first was why I originally started buying the product, but my dogs love the food. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a great dog food. Also, 1 of my dogs is allergic to chicken and Nutro Max is the only beef product I could find for my large dogs. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by What a change this food made I switched my now 13 year old yellow lab/golden mix over to this food 4 years ago and within months saw the differences. Less skin problems and less shedding were just two of the benefits. Backyard scooping is much easier also. The best thing is she doesn't hesitate when eating this food. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nutro Max greatly helped my German Shepherd I rescued a 4 month old German Shepherd puppy who had been on the streets for quit awhile. She obviously had it pretty hard out there as evidenced by her thin skinny, boney shape. It was hard to tell what breed of dog she was due to her emaciated state. I have had many German Shepherds and this one surely didn't look like mine did at 4 months. The minute that I got her, I ran out to buy a good quality puppy food to help her. She immediately loved it and as time went by, she graduaaly gained weight. Her coat is amazing and she did not have any digestive issues related to this food. She is now a year old and people are always asking me what I feed her. She looks so healthy! No one would ever guess that she was a skinny, scrawny, boney pup! Thank you Nutro for helping me save this beautiful girl! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good, quality food We have a 4 year old bullmastiff named Duke. We got him when he was 4 months old and realized very quickly that he had a fairly sensitive stomach, but not enough to warrant buying "sensitive" dog food. We went through probably 6 different dog foods that either made him sick or after looking closer at the ingredients didn't even list a good protein. We wanted something that was made of high quality ingredients to take care of our new family member for as many years as possible. Bullmastiffs, like many large breeds, have a history of hip problems so we also wanted to make sure the food was made especially for large breed dogs. After doing a lot of research we found Nutro Max. Duke loves it, we love, it's a perfect fit for our family! Thank you! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shiny Coat Desiree was must first puppy and had HORRIBLE dandruff. I took her to the vet and he recommended that I put Desiree on a food consisting of more fish oil. He recommended Nutro. Desiree is now almost 9 years old and has been on Nutro Max ever since that vet visit. Never again has she suffered from dry, itchy, dandruffy skin! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Food at a Great Price Nutro Max is a great healthy food for a really great price. I love my dog and I want him to have the best food to keep him healthy. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Max is right for my dog. Max Natural has the right protein balance and ingredients for my Golden Retriever,Kody. He is a family pet, but also a hunting dog, and he needs a high energy food. Max is what he needs. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nutro is a balanced diet We recently graduated our dog from large breed puppy to "Dog" food and we're trying both the Max and Natural Choice on her. She seens to like the Natural Choice and we're now trying the Max. We are also feeding our cat Nutro products because of the perceived quality. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nutromax brought my dog back to health Last February, a family turned a dog in to the local SPCA because family difficulties prevented good care for her. In fact, she had suffered verbal and physical abuse in her first home. She was seriously malnourished, and her skin was seriouslly infected with a non-contageous mange.Workers at the SPCA said this frail nine-month old Cane Corso looked "like a skeleton with skin stretched over the bones, and very little fur." For six weeks she was treated for the skin condition, and one of the SPCA workers "fostered" the dog while she was treated. In April, she was healthy eenough to be put up for adoption.Sadly, either because of her size, or her history, she was in the adoption wing for another six weeks before I adopted her. Nutro was the food in use at the SPCA, so I purchased a 35lb bag and continued feeding at the amount she was accustomed to. She had begun to regain wight (she was 72 pounds by that time), but was about 10 pounds underweight for her breed and size. Now, one year later, she weighs 80lbs and is extremely healthy, and her brindle coat is truly beautiful. Nutromxz Adult for Large Breed dogs is the essential ingredient in her health. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by this product is healthy Quality food at an affordable price that will keep my dog healthy for years to come! February 17, 2011
