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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great food for picky eaters My Weimaraner was the pickiest of eaters until I tried a few sample bags of Nutro from my local pet store. She LOVED it! I now feed her a mix of the Lite Adult, the Herring and Potato (which gives her a beautiful shiny coat) mixed with the Chicken, Rice & Oatmeal canned food and warm water and she cannot wait for me to put her food bowl down at each meal!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Payton loves Your Food! After the food recall, I had to search for a food that Payton would eat regularly and that would also agree with his stomach. The canned food for sensitive stomach was the only one he would eat. He no longer vomits the food and loves its flavor. Please don't change a thing! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great features My "rescued" dog is over eight years old now. I have found that no matter what(even when she has an upset stomach) she can keep this food down. I have always fed her this and given her a second canned food of great quality (Other Nutro canned adult foods which vary).I highly recommend Nutro products. February 17, 2011
