Rated 5 out of 5 by Jakesmom Switched from Adult to Senior Max for our near 10 year old Brittany Spaniel and he started acting like a puppy again! Very fun to see him so frisky again and still have energy to play after his hour long walk. He loves the taste of this also. February 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My picky dog loves this. I have the pickiest g.shepherd ever ..until i feed her max senior she loves this food so much. January 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Dog Loves it BUT..... My Mini Shnzer who will be 11yr next month loves this food..However can NO longer find the 5# bag !!!..uggggg Petsmart and Mernards stopped selling that size, had to switch to another Nutro sr food..:( April 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Senior years My beagle just turned 7 in Feb, but I still had some of her old food left (Science Diet), so I'm just now getting something for her Senior years. I was concerned that Science Diet's Senior formula might upset her stomach...there happened to be a Nutro pet nutrition specialist in the store today and she told me all about Nutro! It's better for my baby and costs less than SD. I brought it home to try it out and she loves it! Can't wait to see how eating better makes her even healthier! Thanks for caring about our pets even more than we do! =D July 22, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by All 3 dogs love it!! We have 3 unique and very different dogs; a 6 lb Italian Greyhound, a 50 lb Lab/Greyhound mix and a 70 lb German Shorthair Pointer. All 3 dogs eat the Senior and LOVE it! We have tried to give the little one different food(i.e., the smaller kibble Nutro carries) and she'll have none of it, must eat what the big dogs eat! Switched over to this Senior version once our GSP hit 6 years old and have had no issues at all. They have never walked away from their bowls like with other foods out there! Have been a Nutro customer for 13 years since the IG was a pup and have never had an issue with any of the products! June 25, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dogs love it, Never any left in the bowl I have two german shorthaired pointers. One is 8 the other is 11. They both chase quail and pheasants like they were 5 years old. Never a problem with this food. They have been on it since they were puppies. And yes we have quail pheasants and turkeys in British Columbia Canada. April 29, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product My two beagles have always had Nutro dry food, but I was concerned about switching them from the sensitive stomach formula as they got older. I worried that the senior formula may upset their sensitive stomachs. This has not been the case, and now that they are 9 and 11 years old, they are doing great and I'm so glad that I can give them a product designed for dogs their age!! August 26, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Don't ever stop making this..... My chocolate lab is 7, but he's going on 2! He loves the taste. His stools are solid and he is extremely healthy. His coat shines like the sun. And the coupons we recieved from Nutro are truely unbelievable($7 to $10 off a bag, ah hello)! April 27, 2011
