Lite Adult Dog FoodLamb & Whole Brown Rice Formula

Less active dogs often carry extra weight. An overweight dog can benefit from a diet that blends high fiber and proper protein levels. NATURAL CHOICE® Lite Adult Formulas can help adult dogs feel full and reduce their overall food intake, which can help with weight loss. Our nutritionally complete, low-calorie formula is made with two primary ingredients: real Australian and New Zealand lamb and whole brown rice, which helps promote easier digestion. Omega-6 fatty acid (linoleic acid), zinc and B vitamins also support healthy skin and a soft, shiny coat. We use premium ingredients and no artificial colors or flavors so it has a natural flavor dogs will enjoy, guaranteed.

Package Sizes Available: 5 lbs., 15 lbs., 30 lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by My three Beagles I have three beagles I had to put them on lite food Several years ago like 8 as my oldest who is now 14 weighed in at over 50lbls due to a thyroid disorder his food not only helped him loose the weight and is a happy beagle the other two are 8 and 9 and they love the food even though they are more active thank you nutro and yes I fed them nutro all there lives so please do not change something that works October 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best food for my girls Nutro lite lamb and brown rice is great. I have two toy poodles, one a little chubby and the other a model at just under 6 pounds. Both girls love the food and prefer it over other dry food. They have great hair and skin with bright eyes. The vet is very pleased with them. My husband keeps wanting to change their food because it is a little more expensive . I won't let him and figure we spend about fifty cents a day on their food. Thanks for a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Not able to find Lite Adult dog food. Like this dog food, but we are unable to locate it in our area. Have bee looking for about a month and none of the stores have the Adult Lite in the stores. We are told the company sends the food, so I guess they are not doing a very good job. Having to feed our dogs something other than the Lite and not very happy. October 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Food I have a Westie and he stays in great shape and this food was recommended by a German Breeder .... he never has any red tear stains that is due to most commercial food dyes in dog food.... I wouldn't feed my dogs anything else.. August 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy and healthier!! We've been on a dog food search almost since the day we got Lola. But even with her picky eating habits, she was still somehow overweight. We tried several different brands, but nothing worked. So after a talk with a local Nutro rep, we decided to give Nutro Natural Choice Lite a try. I was skeptical at first, but she loved it, and I mean LOVED it. I didn't think she would loose any weight with Nutro; I mean how could she if she liked it that much? Well we just had our 6 month check up at the vet, and Lola actually lost 6 lbs! Our vet was extremely pleased with her results, as were we! She is finally at a healthier weight, and she still loves her food! February 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by denisk i have fed this to my dog for many years. I t has helped to control his weight and he loves it. I mix it with some wet food and feed him twice per day. The ingredients are natural and healthier than other brands. I wouldn't buy anything else. My pooch is 11 years old and has been on this or other Natural Choice products his whole life. I also had another dog that passed on about two years ago at 14. She lived a long and good life and ate exclusively Natural Choice her whole life. January 12, 2013
