Rated 5 out of 5 by NO NEED TO EVER BUY ANOTHER BRAND! I have a Boston Terrier and she was having issues with ever brand I tried with her. Until I was recommended MAX Puppy food. She loved it, her tummy loved it and her coat started to look very healthy and shinny. her dropping had little to no smell (and being an indoor baby that really helps if I happen to work late) I can honestly say I WILL NEVER EVER EVER USE ANOTHER BRAND! As a matter of fact when I am at Petco I every chance I get convince everyone I can to try Max! I tell them all the great results I have had with Max......can I get on payroll?? haha I honestly love the product and will never change brands. as long as it is around all my baby's/pets will be on but MAX!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Small breed perfect! This product is perfect for my small breed in-door dogs. They will not eat anything else. The flat small bites are perfect for a puppy we have that has a facial deformity. She was born with a cleft pallet. When she was born she had less than 50% chance of survival. We were concerned she may never be able to survive on dry food alone and she is feisty and healthy as any dog without problems. She has no problems eating this brand and will not touch anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow, what a change this product made What a difference. We bought a 5 week old pug puppy in August. I don't know what the breeder was feeding him but we bought some Nutro puppy food and within a week of transitioning him to the new food, the shedding problem disappeared and his coat became much shinier. I highly recommend Nutro products to all my friends with dogs or cats. Thanks to the Nutro salesman Mr Grubar in Charlotte for his time he spent with us discussing Nutro products! February 17, 2011
