Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 59reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by good dog food at a great price. I had a dalmation for 13 years and he was a little heavy we put him on science diet weight management and it really didn't help and it was costly. Then we found you weight management line and he lost 10 pounds which helped him alot as he was 13.So now that we have gotten another dalmation and a hound we started them on your puppy line and now adult dog food as they are 5 and 3 years of age. Your brand of dog food help me feed them right at a affordable price for our family, the dogs love it it's good for their coats and skin and it has less waste. We love our dogs and they love your food. February 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by "Poi dogs"i send their mahalo & aloha! Mili & Lani are 11-year-old sisters of mixed breed (or "poi dogs" as we call them here in Hawaii). Recently, after Nutro discontinued their "buy 10 bags, get one free" offer, we decided to try our keiki (children in Hawaiian!) on a cheaper Costco brand. Within a couple of weeks, their stools were runny and they seemed to have lost interest in their food. Hoping that it was the change in their diet and not any other health issue, we switched back to Nutro. Within days, Mili & Lani they were sooo much happier and healthier...back to their old doggy-selves! Mili & Lani send their mahalo and aloha and their ohana will forever be totally devoted to Nutro Max! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Food Our English Bulldogs became overweight due to their low activity in the winter and extreme love of food. We previously used the Adult Max formula because it was good for the sensitive tummy of our bully, Molly. Knowing that Nutro food is an all natural option, it make us feel good about what is going into their bodies. Recently, we switched to the Weight Control Max and have been able to take a few pounds off both dogs in just a few months. Molly and Winston love the weight control formula, so we are very pleased with this product. February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Keeps my pug healthy and happy I have an eight year old pug who's been eating Nutro food since she was weaned. For the past 5 years I've had her on the Weight Management food. She loves it and still gets excited at mealtime when she hears me shake the food cup. She's been very healthy and energetic her whole life on this food. Her waste is minimal and easy to pick up. I'll always be a fan of Nutro Max brand! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product works Fantastic! We found out our Golden Retreiver, Samson was allergic to everything by having him tested. He was so overweight. Then we noticed that NutroMax Weight Control was on the list of food Samson could have. Once he started on it and took daily walks, he lost about 46 lbs in just over 1 year. He looks Great!! He has so much energy WE get tired before him. He loves to play ball ALL the time and runs after to fetch. Before Samson would run then lay down or just point at the ball if he got too tired. We can't throw the ball in the water far enough for him now, he just keeps swimming the distance with no problem. It's like we got another puppy. Now we give him the amount of NutroMax Weight Control to help maintain him at a healthy weight. Our other beagle has stayed slender with this food also. February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nutro Max rocks! Our 3 boys, two of which are on a weight-loss program, love this food. The texture and moisture (and even the smell) are similar to regular kibble, which I've found to be unusual in weight control food. They really love it, and it's working! Once they make it to their goal weight, I know the transition will be easy back to normal adult Max since the products are so similar. Nutro Max rocks! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This variety of food helps with over weight dogs. I have a Basset Hound who is not active at all and when she was on regular adult food she put on more weight. When I changed her to Max Weight Management. and followed the directions for weight control, she started to slim down. Once she was at a desirable weight, I started feeding her the same kind of food but watched the amount she was fed as to not put on more weight. She has held her healthy weight for about 5 years now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by really helps control weight gain My dog, although active, seems to put on weight at the slighest change of food amounts or activity level. With other foods she would fluctuate weight so much. I started her on nutro about 4 years ago and have been extremely happy ever since. Her weight is not fluctuating anymore, she loves the food, her coat is amazing, and the food really seems to make her feel good. It also has helped from keeping her gaining weight, and another benefit is that she seems more "regular", and when she goes to the bathroom, it is easy to cleanup, unlike with other foods. Thank You Nutro!Stephanie the happy customer, and Kaiya the happy dog February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product We have had our lab on Nutro-Max Adult Large breed food since we got him last January. After taking him to the vet for his checkup, he had gained 20 # in one year, we put him on the "Weight Control" bag, and he LOVES IT! No problems switching. February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product I have a 15 year old Golden Retriever, Sunny, that still thinks he's a puppy :~) . My Vet is astounded at how well he is doing and told me he is on borrowed time due to his age. I told the Vet, aren't we all!I attribute his continued good health, proper weight and overall happy disposition to Nutro Max Weight Control and lots of lovin'. I live in a lower unit so everyday when I get home from work, Sunny greets me at the bottom of the stairs with his stuffed giraffe hanging out of his mouth and his tail wagging.Thank you Nutro Max for keeping my "best friend" healthy and happy! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for my four kids My four kids love to eat this type of food. I have two labs, two schnauzers. They are my life, I have to take care of them. Thanks for this food. I just wish I could purchase a larger size bag. If there is a way for me to buy larger then a 30lb bag please let me know. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My puppy loves this food! My puppy loves her dog food and I know that this food is great for her health. Her coat is nice and shiny, her 'piles' are healthy and her teeth are very white and she is very healthy. Our puppy is now one year old and she is such an important part of our family. I want only the best for my baby; that's why we chose Nutro Max! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Ingredients My wife and I looked and looked and looked for a good dog food that would help with weight control. Everything we looked at had just junk for ingredients and fillers. Until we found the Nutro Max. This dog food is awesome and our dogs love it. Thank you for making a good quality dog food. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by taste great my dog jsut love this brand and its really good for him February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Our large breed lab mix started gaining wieght and we could not do anything about it. We upped his walks and tried reducing his food intake but nothing helped. When we went to get his dogfood the next time we decided to try switching from senior to weight management. What a difference it made. Our dog lost 2 pounds which is alot for him and has been able to maintain a healthy weight. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product keeps my dogs' weight under control. My two dachshunds love this food! I have one that is extra large (approximately 25 lbs.) that I keep on this at all times because he was up to 29 lbs and if not regulated will gain weight again.They do eat less, shed less, and poo less with Nutro and nothing will keep me from buying your product. The only thing I would like to see is the weight control in small bites. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Dog Food My dog was on Nutro Max and now that she is older and slower we decided to change her over to the Nutro Weight Control. She has done very well on it and since has dropped a few pounds. But she still looks and feels good with all the energy she needs but with less fat and calories. Good job Nutro! February 17, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Keeps his weight down Our 10 year old lab, Bear, is not as active in the winter, so the weight control is perfect for him. It must taste good, because he will eat it a second time in the yard, if you know what I mean. In the summer, we use the large breed formula. I am a true believer in using quality food, because it is beneficial in the long run. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic for weight control Isaac, a terrier/wolfhound mix, loves the Max dog food. He had a ruptured disc in his back and the vet said to keep his weight at 40 lbs. or less and the Nutro Max is ideal. He loves the taste and we give it to him as treats also. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Nutro weight control has helped us keep our dogs weight down due to inactivity caused by hip illness, and healthy!! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kept Them Healthy! I started feeding Nutro Max Weight Management to my Big Black Labrador, Otis, many years ago. When he became an adult dog this food kept him healthy and regular and the fact that he did not carry unnecessary weight helped keep his hips in great shape all of his life. When we rescued Hoover, a 10 month old Giant Black Lab, we also started him on weight management food when he reached 3 years old. He has also had all of these same benefits for all of his adult life. Now that he's 10 and "retired" from most "active" dog duties and focuses only on "Rug Supervision, " I know Nutro Max Weight management is responsible for his continued good health and fitness. Great product. We are totally committed to it for our large adult dog. February 17, 2011
