Rated 1 out of 5 by happy not good for dogs smell bad,bad,bad I would not buy it for my dog April 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog loves it! I mix this with dry food, and my dog gobbles her food up quickly. She gets very excited when I get it out. My dog gives it 5-stars! Even the cat is jealous! I would definately recommend this. September 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by A+ I have a Pomeranian and two Dachshund mixes. They are sooo picky! I used to feed the Pedigree can food and it was awful they always had loose stools. This formula is awesome, they absolutely love it and I can see the difference from the old canned food I used to feed them. July 14, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog loves this! I've been feeding my little guy Nutro Natural Choice small bites dog food for a long time now, and at 16 years old he's definitely slowed down but is still in pretty good health. His teeth, however, are another story, and he's too old to be put under for a cleaning. I had tried some tooth wipes but those just made him sick. A few weeks ago it had gotten to the point where he would go to his bowl like he wanted to eat, but he wasn't eating much at all. I wanted to try mixing his dry food with some canned to see if that would help him eat more, so I got this (mostly because of the sensitive stomach formula). WOW, does he ever approve! He absolutely loves this stuff, and even though he eats so fast I'm afraid he'll get sick, he never has. He's back to eating a healthy amount again and I feel so much better knowing that he isn't going hungry because of his teeth. Great product! May 30, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best! I used the puppy stage of this food, then switched to this one. I empty the can into a tupperware and mix 1/6 of the can with 1 c dry food (dry chicken and oatmeal Nutro dog food). My dog's coat is shiny and he has had no problems tolerating the food (he used to throw up his food when I used other brands). I've been using Nutro for over 2 years now and my dog loves it!
