Rated 5 out of 5 by Nutro Max Adult Weight Control 30 pounds I have buying this product for a number of you only have the 15 pounds bag,this is much more expensive when you buy 2 bags i think you do not care about the extra money we are paying,I may think going to another brand of the same product who has the 30 pound.Plus you have stop the coupons February 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bring back the 30 pound bag Have been giving this to our 12 year old dog for many years and love it. Why did you discontinue the 30 pound bag? It's way more expensive to buy the 15 pound bag. PLEASE BRING BACK THE 30 POUND BAG!! February 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Please bring back the 30# bag My Basset Hound, Winslow, had put on quite a bit of weight due to inactivity because of joint problems. Since he was doing so well with the Nutro brand, we tried Nutro Weight Management and he has lost the weight he needed to. My only complaint is that you have stopped making the 30 pound bag, so I end up paying more. PLEASE reconsider October 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this brand My yellow lab lost 12 pounds when we switched. Is there any chance it will come in a 30 lb bag soon? We love this stuff!! October 11, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by ms Great food, just wish this still came in a 30 pound bag! October 8, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Waiting to see My yellow lab has been on other brands and has had allergic reactions. I started him on the weight control and so far he LOVES it. I will post again togive results of the weight issue but so far the allergy is gone. The only problem i have is that its a little expensive. ... January 4, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Poor Coat Quality Since changing to Nutro Max Large Breed Adult food, my dogs (all 11 of them) skin and coats went downhill fast. I have a black Newfoundland whose coat is drier than dry grass and there is no shine at all. I have another mix (50#) who is blowing his coat like I have never seen before...and it has gone on now for two months! I definitely would not recommend Nutro Max to anyone. June 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nearly perfect food I switched my dog to this product after he had been on some other brands. He always licks his bowl clean after evening feeding. He has put on weight over the last few years and the vet is happy that he is losing weight and maintains a health coat. May 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great taste dogs love it I have two large Bloodhounds eating this food. I have tried many diferent brands and I have never seen them more happy to eat as they are since I settled on this brand. I should have chosen it sooner. Oh ya they look great and feel great too. January 6, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by ok but A little disapointed.The old formula had Glucosamine and Chondroitin in it.Now I have to buy the more expensive formula to get Glucosamine and Chondroitin in the food or add it my self.Glucosamine and Chondroitin was the reason I changed over to this brand 3 years ago. December 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly Recommend I've fed Nutro Max Weight Mgmt to my dog for over two years now and I am very pleased with this dog food. I recently switched to the Nutro Ultra and I am equally as happy. He gets a ton of compliments on how "beautiful" he is. October 14, 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by Weight control food My dog did not enjoy this weight control chicken compared to the Nutro chicken. We had to change back after one month on the weight control chicken. I am going to try it once more.I wish I knew what the dog didn't like about it because he needs to loose a few pounds. September 21, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great natural and well balanced dog food We have two dogs, a Leonberger (Layla) and a Shih-Poo (Latte). Both use and love this dog food. It has helped Layla lose weight while keeping Latte in shape. We first used this food for our Greyhound Prancer, it was the only food his system would tolerate. Based on our results we highly recommend this product. March 24, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Weight Control for Mixed Breed My staffordshire bull terrier mix gained weight after she was spayed. I tried several other different brands of weight control dog food with no success. After 2 months on Nutro Max, she has already lost 5 pounds! She has more energy and wants to go on longer walks. Great product, highly recommended. March 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by weight control for doxies My dachshund Reese has been on Nutro for at least 5 years. There have been a couple times we have tried other foods and he won't eat it. These type of dogs have problems with weight control so to have a low calorie food that is not full of just fillers is awesome!!!! Thanks Nutro for making such a great weight control dog food :) March 20, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Blanca's swelt figure Well, Blanca will never have a swelt figure, but Nutro Max Weight Control helps keep her weight under control. March 14, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product can help maintain a healthy weight We have two giant great Danes, a three year old boy name Deacon and a six year old girl name Layla. We found that one food met two needs. Deacon grew and gained weight at healthy rate (it is possible for a Dane to grow too fast) and Layla, who had begun to bulk up a little too much, regained her girly dog figure. Our dogs each weigh around 140 pounds. They go through two 40-pound bags of food every three weeks. This could obviously result in a large amount of waste material. Dog food that saves us from buying a Bobcat (a miniature front-end loader) to scoop up waste is a good product. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dogs love it Our dogs just love this food. I have three dogs. I have a Westie, Yorkie and a Havenese. I have tried other food but they seem to only like Nutro Max Weight Control. Makes it so easy for me that they all love the same food. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good food for your dog at a reasonable price We have two dogs; a five year old border collie and a three year old lab mix lab mix. We've been feeding them the MAX weight control food for a couple of years now, and they both seem to love it. The price is a little higher than some of the brands you'll find at the supermarket, but well worth it. I feel much better about feeding MAX brand to my dogs than any of those supermarket brands! March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Weight Control Food I have 4 dogs of different ages and they all love Nutro Max Weight Control dog food. I have a +-13 year old Basset/Beagle mix, a 10-year-old yellow Lab, a 6- year-old Polish Lowland Sheepdog and (currently) my 4 year-old Boxer mix granddog. They are all in excellent shape, and even though my Lab has a touchy stomach, he never has a problem with Nutro Max. I feel good about the ingredients in Nutro Max, there's less of a mess in the yard (and with 4 dogs, that's something to consider) they're all shiny and happy and they love their Nutro Max! March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great! My 12 yr old Airedale loves this food and her coat is better than ever! She's not as active as she once was, but the food is agreat fit for her health, diet, and age March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dogs love this food!! Great taste! My dogs are picky eaters and I switched them to this food because they do not get the exercise they need right now. They both seem to love the taste and don't seem to have a problem eating. Usually finish all of it!!! I would recommend this food!! March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fat Dog Last summer the vet told me that my dog was fat! I almost cried. I just thought my dog was funny shaped. I switched her to the weight control food. She has lost 10 pounds and she looks great. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product works!!!!! Nutro products are fantastic, they not only work for weight loss but my dogs love the food. and are extremely healthy as a rersult. Nutro compares with all high quality dog foods and for a good price. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pugs love it! My 2 Pugs love this food. This breed has a tendency to gain weight, but with this formula they are able to maintain a healthy weight. I've noticed a great improvement in their coat and less shedding. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Want Your Pup To Have A Great Figure? This is it! As most Pugs do, they LOVE food & of course their treats, but what ends up happening is they end up overweight. When we got our black pug, Pearl, we wanted the best for her & had many recommendations of food. Of course, we took what the breeder told us she was giving her & then we started looking on our own. We had friend recommend certain brands & even tried one of them. What we found was a pug that wouldn't eat at all. Is that even possible? Well, it was & "Mom & Dad" felt guilty. We wanted something natural & something that wasn't made out of country. In our searching we found Nutro & that they had a weight control. After reading the ingredients we figured we'd give it a try. Well, Pearl would give it a try. She loved it & we felt good about her having it, so Miss Pearl has maintained her girlie figure for the past 3 yrs & loves her food. What more could we ask for. Thankfully our local store continues to carry it, otherwise we'd have to resort buying online. February 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dogs love it! We have 4 very different dogs, ranging from 4 - 14. We began feeding Nutro Max about 2 years ago when our Beagle became a bit chubby. We were concerned at first that it wouldn't be satisfying for the bigger dogs (Rottie mix, English Setter mix and Labradoodle) but that has never been a problem for them. The Nutro has helped with weight management for all of them as they have gotten older and a bit slower. We have no overweight dogs and they are satisfied as well. Win - win! February 21, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far I am very pleased with results. Hello Nutro-I have recently switched feeding ,my two adult dogs,from MAX to Weight Control MAX. The regular MAX bulked both up for the winter, as they are both outside year-round. (Don't worry-they are a mix with grey wolf dominant, and love the winter with snow and ice.)Their coats are beautiful (one male/one female) year round, but especially heavy during winter.I am using the weight control product now, as they are both a little heavier than in the summer.So, i am trusting for good results with the new product. Thanks, Chris February 21, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product really works!! I bought this for our 10 yrs old dog who has arthritis pretty bad. We have been feeding him this dog food for about a year now & he has lost 16 lbs so far. Our dog is German Shepherd/Lab mix so he is a big dog to begin with. He had gained a lot of weight since he could not move around well. After we started feeding his Nutro Max he has more energy & he has lost some weight which helps his arthritis. I would recommend this dog food to anyone. February 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by special needs for specific problems Kloee is a beautifu boxer-lab mix, with all the energy of the world. I believe in feeding the best, and Nutro is the best I have found. Winter is a time of relaxing in the recliner and not as active running up and down the fence and barking at all the passing cars and people walking down the street. So, I saw a weight gain and decided to switch to the weight management food. The weight has not gained, Kloee loves the food and with all Nutro products, the poo is less. I have used Nutro for the last two dogs, and will not switch to another brand. If my store is out of my Nutro, I will drive to another store, to make sure Kloee has the best. February 19, 2011
