Feeding Guidelines

Note: These are the recommended feeding ranges for puppies. These guidelines should be adjusted as needed to obtain optimum weight.

Puppies: From 3 to 5 weeks of age, moisten food and feed frequently. From 6 weeks of age, feed the suggested amount in three meals per day until 6 months of age, then twice daily.

Pregnant/Lactating Bitches: During pregnancy, offer 50% more and during lactation offer at least two to three times more than the amount shown for puppies over 12 months of age. Keep fresh drinking water available at all times, provide plenty of exercise and see your veterinarian regularly. Serve dry or lightly moistened. To help maintain freshness, we recommend sealing the bag tightly and storing it in a cool, dry location

Product Reviews

Large Breed Puppy Recipe is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 882.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Pleased I recently switched my otherwise very happy, healthy puppy to Nutrio Max Larg Breed puppy recipe with chicken. The first time she ate it, she threw up whole pieces. I thought it was from eating too fast, as she has done this before. I tried again the next day and she throws up within minutes of eating every time. I'm not sure what it is, but I will not be continuing use of this product and I would not recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My puppy loves it After trying so many different products and repeated visits to the vet because of upset stomach it all got resolved after purchasing this product. My puppy is a 12 week old rottweiler and absolutely loves it. I wish they would've given out samples of this product before so that i would have tried it instead of trying so many different products prior to this one. But so far my puppy is back to being healthy and eating everything on his bowl. He absolutely loves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nutro Max Dog Food This is more of my dog reviewing, than i. My dog although, seems to love the food. He chows down on it when he gets fed, and has no issue keeping it down. ( some dog foods don't sit well with him) and I love how healthy it is for him, since he puts a couple of bowls down a day. I will probably be switching my current dog food to this since he likes it so much more than what we had before( a different grain free dog food). But it seems he prefers the taste of this one much more. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who gets a puppy, or is thinking of switching to a healthy dog food.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My dog loves the flavor. I think NUTRO™ MAX™ Large Breed Puppy Food for the most part is a really good dog food. I transitioned my large puppy from her dog food to this formula and did not have any problems like diarrhea which can sometimes occur. If you placed both dog food formulas in front of her she would choose the max brand because she prefers the flavor of it over her typical dog food. The only concern I have is that her stools seemed to be firmer, and less frequent than normal. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our pup loved this stuff This was our first experience with Nutro food. We have a Dutch Shepard puppy who is very accustomed to high end dog food. He loved this stuff and we did too. The size and texture are great, just big enough for those larger breed puppies. His coat is beautiful and he just continues to grow and learn everyday. We will definitely be using Nutro Max for our not so little guy in the future. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nutro Max Review This is a great product. The dogs really enjoy feeding time and love the taste of Nutro Max dog food. They seem to be more excited when it comes to feeding time.I have also noticed the change for the best in their digestion. Less tummy issues. Their energy level has also improved. With that being said I started feeding it to my older dog thinking it would be more gentle on her tummy as well. After about a week she, started perking up she looked more healthier and became more active. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
