Rated 5 out of 5 by Rewards? Recently adopted a malnourished Great Dane. This brand seems to be putting weight on him nicely without stomach issues. Would be so nice if Nutro would offer coupons to make this a little more affordable for those of us with several dogs. I've been a 'member' now for 4 yrs and I've gotten ONE lone coupon since I enrolled. C'mon Nutro, show some love January 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by high energy is now high endurance? I have been feeding my English Setter this food for 10 years (she is 11)She is also very high energy..and stays very slim naturally. Hope she likes the High endurance formula as well..the chunks are larger... I freaked out a bit when i couldnt find the old packaging, i was worried it had been discontinued. She didnt get fat on the old formula,because she has so much energy, but is slowing down a bit now that she is older, so I'm thinking of switching to a less fat formula.. December 3, 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product! I tried quite a few foods for my Shepherd/Husky but she always looked so skinny...I even brought her in for a weigh-in. I always tried for the most natural food I could find at a good price, and this food takes the cake! Her coat is shiny, she put on the few pounds I was looking for, and loves eating it. No yogurt, or gravy or anything added :) Well..maybe a bit of hot water. March 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent suppliment when hunting I have a field trial (hard running) english setter that I hunt with. We love the Nutro products and I was feeding her one of the other Natural Choice selections. I found that she would "hit the wall" after about 2 hours in the field. I then switched to the High Energy and found that while she had phenominal stamina in the field she would gain weight if I didn't hunt her alot. Because her lifestyle varies between periods of high activity with those that are less strenuous, I experimented and found a formula that works. She gets Nutro High Energy the meal before a hunt, during breaks in the hunt and for her next two feedings which are the evening after the hunt and the next morning. I then switch back to her regular Nutro. She now has no weight gains during non hunting times, has high energy when hunting, and recovers quickly from the hunt. The best of all worlds with a phenominal product! March 2, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome food! I have a Boxer/St. Bernard mix who is very active. He's had a difficult time gaining weight. People would actually ask me if I was feeding my dog. (I'm a dog trainer! Of course I feed my dog!) I was feeding him more than twice what he should be eating! I've tried several different foods, including Blue Buffalo, which is supposed to be one of the best. My vet wanted me to put him on a VERY expensive prescription diet. The Nutro representative that I work with talked to me about the High Energy food, so I decided it was worth a shot! I also read a lot of good reviews about it! Well, we tried it & my dog has gained weight! He looks great & it really has made his coat softer & very shiny! I am so thrilled with this food! December 7, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by best food ever!!!! my 3yr old pit bull Ayer loves this food i 've tried other food brands n didnt like how weak they made my dog look. with Nutro high energy he doesnt look fat or skinny he looks perfect he looks lean n muscular. November 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kept weight on My Chihuahua My poor Chihuahua, Princess, age 11, has such a hard time keeping weight on during the winter months. She weighs only about 8 lbs during the summer, but drops to 4.5lbs when it gets cold. Yes, it's only a 3lb difference, but when 3lbs is 1/3 your body weight, well.... it concerned me. She always eats good, but she shivers off all the weight. I had her on can food, but it got expensive and tarter kept building up on her teeth. Nurto's high energy food is a crunchy (and assuming tasty as she always runs for the dinner bell) lifesaver! November 5, 2011
