Rated 5 out of 5 by so happy! I rescued my baby from rescue group. She is part whipett, so she is quite lean. She loves lamb and rice and looks so healty Thank You! December 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The tastiest! Holly and Abbie are my two little loves that I adoped from the shelter. They were 7 weeks old when I brought them home. I had several brands and flavors of canned puppy food for them to try and Nutro Lamb & Rice won hands down. I think the doggies would stand on their head for this stuff! Everyone comments on how beautiful, soft and shiny their coats are. I tell them I feed the girls Nutro. January 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by FINALLY!!! I have a Vizsla Diva and she is such a picky eater!!! She is super high evergy and runs a lot, but never wants to eat. It's a full time job to keep weight on her. The Nutro Lamb and Rice was one of the foods that we tried that she finally actually wanted to eat. I was looking for a food that would be natural and wholesome and healthy for her. She is stil super lean, but she loves to eat it! Thank you Nutro for saving our lives! February 17, 2011
