A couple of years ago our dog developed a vomiting problem so the vet recommended Nutro. We went with Nutro's Wholesome Essentials (chicken/brown rice/oatmeal) and the problem was resolved almost immediately, hasn't vomited since.
However, he had in increasing gland issue that required a vet visit every few months for draining, no big deal but it's still money out of pocket. The vet suggested he may have allergies so we switched to Grain Free and it's been clear sailing since. Really, truly impressed with the quality and options that Nutro offers. No vomiting, no bum dragging, just a dog that loves his food.
This product is slightly more expensive than the other one we started with but the money we spend on it is made back by the complete lack of vet visits. I never, and I mean never, write product reviews but I was just so impressed that I felt compelled to. You get what you pay for.

I tried changing foods, tried sensitive stomach foods and then a vet in the store recommended I try Nutro grain free. YEAH! The vomiting has decreased! I haven't figured out what exactly causes the vomiting, but it is greatly reduced now. We are both happier.

I have a 10 yer old lab mix who started having skin allergy problems this year. The vet tells me dogs become more hypersensitive the older they get. Anyway, getting the antibiotics down him him with each flare up has been expensive and he really is hard to give pills to. I read about using grain free fish diets helping with allergies so after spending an hour at a pet food store looking at all the grain free brands I picked Nutro. I had used a different Nutro formula 15 years ago with a picky boxer. He is eating it well and has stopped chewing and scratching until he bleeds. Hopefully it continues and he never has to take pills again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PitadorMama No more itches!
Our Lab/Pit Mix was itching her paws and lower legs like crazy! She was getting bumps on her scalp and spots that looked like pimples by her eyes and chin. We went to our local Petsmart and asked a very helpful employee what she recommended. She took us to the Nutro section and said if we didn't see improvement in a week they would take it back! Well we didn't take it back! In ONE WEEK her skin cleared up and she wasn't itching as much! Now 3 months later you can see a real difference in her coat and skin and she is no longer itching, well outside of the normal morning scratch :) ! I tell everyone I know how great this food is, we will never buy anything else!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sam Best for dry and itchy skin
Henri has had a lot of food allergies over the years. Initially, only wheat bothered him but over time, he has developed allergies to other grains and to chicken. We thought we had things right with another brand but then, he developed dry skin which also caused him to itch. However, the change to Nutro grain free fish meal has changed everything. His skin is no longer dry and we have been able to shed the cone he had been wearing. For Henri, this food has been a miracle and besides, he likes the taste.
