Rated 5 out of 5 by The Quality is Nutro-Fantastic! My 2 mix breeds,1) 45 lb lab/border collie & 2 ) 115# lab/rot mix have been on the different stages of Nutro since we rescued them as 5lb puppies.. At 6 months, Tug (our big boy) was diagnosed with hip dysplasia in both hips. Vet said normally we wait for them to be 18 mo. old before surgery. He was so bad, we did the worst side at 8 months. Beside the hips, Tug was in perfect shape & health, I honestly believe it was due to the wonderful nutrition & exercise he had been exposed to all his life. First surgery went great, Tug was a trooper & didn't want to do the physical therapy, but him and I trodged up and down the street for months to get him to heal. 6 months later we did the left hip. I switched to the Bone & Joint formula as well as giving him extra doeses of human Glucosomine & Chondrotin. At a vet check up I told him what I'd been doing & he said, Tracey, no need for that, this food has it all & you're just wasting your money on supplements that he's already getting plenty of in his food. Take the dog home, do the physical thereapy & just love him back to health.Today, I have a happy, healthy 115 lb dog that can run, jump, bounce off his hips to chase our other dog & I get compliments on his looks every time we take him out to PetSmart to buy his Nutro.A lot has changed in the last 20 years regarding our pet foods. The preservatives, the fillers, the jumk they put in it is disgusting. But one thing I know I can trust, is to pick up my bags of Nutro for both my 2 dogs & 8 cats and there is no worries there. I KNOW what their getting and their long, healthy lives are proof enough for me.. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product We started giving this food to our dog Grizzly at about age 3 after we discovered he was not only allergic to beef but his plastic bowls. He was also afflicted with demodex mange. With the high quality of the food, we had less waste to pickup in the backyard. The nutritional value in the food made his coat less greasy and once all his hair grew back he was an extremely beautiful coated chow/newfoundland. We now have a new puppy and have started him off on the Lamb and rice puppy food as well. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Has produced a true athlete Our dog Madison Aftershock (Maddy) has been on Nutro since she has been a puppy. She is truly a beautiful specimen of her breed Black Labrador. She comes in at 85 lbs of muscle, a soft and shiny coat, with minimal shedding. She has energy, while possessing a loving and gentle temperament. Maddy, on a regular basis at about 35 yards catches tennis balls in a full run as they drop over her shoulder. Like a football post pattern play...the dog is a great athlete. My wife and I attribute her growth, temperament, gorgeous coat, and athletic abilities largely to the food we have been feeding her all her life “Nutro”. I am so happy that I finally broke down and agreed to find our Maddy. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our dogs love this product. Our male German Shepherd was a finicky eater. We switched to him to Nutro choice both dry and canned foods and he is eating a lot better now. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog loves this food. We started Maui, our Golden on Nutro when she was 6 months old. She is 2 now and has been eating Nutro Lamb Meal and Rice for over a year. She loves it and her coat is as shiny and soft as when she was a pup. Maui thanks you Nutro. March 11, 2011

Rated 5 out of 5 by Misty Mae Misty Mae is a 2 yr old Golden Retreiver. She is very active to say the least. With the Nutro Lamb & Rice this helps her maintain her weight and her high level activity. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Helps keep my dogs coat soft and shiny I have a chocolate lab and I always receive compliments on her coat. I attribute it to her Nutro food. It helps keep her coat soft and shiny all year long. We have been using Nutro since she was 8 weeks old and plan to use it the rest of her life! It's a very high quality dog food with no fillers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Murphy Loves It!! Murphy loves it, and easy to "clean up" after! He has done great on it. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Two Active Swimmers coming up I have a golden and a lab we live in FL where we go swimming all year round. Last summer I started noticing hot spots on the dogs and there coats were dull and brittle from being in the water daily. I was giving them Flax Seed as a daily supplement to help, but started doing research on other ways to help. We have now been using Natural Choice dog food for a little over 9 months and am happy to report that the gils coats look beautiful and they seem satisfied with there new dog food. On the weekends they have the Natural Choice wet food added to there dry food and its great to see the actual chucks of meat in there. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by I am very happy with your products. I am breeder of Newfounflands and have been using your products for years. My female is pregnant and due the first week of April. I recommend your products to the pup Owners. They are fine products. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by great for large breeds WE have 2 large breed mixes, did have 3, but our old guy passed. He was almost 15 yrs old, and ate the large breed lamb & rice for years. He had a sensitive stomach, but this one worked well for him & kept him healthy & comfortable thru his arthritis for many years. At 125 lbs, he should have passed long before he did, but our vet is convinced that the good food, love & care we gave him, kept him going & happy till the end. Our other ones eat this now too !! March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great healthy dog food! My dog loves Nutro Large Breed Lamb and Rice. He eats it very well and it never upsets his stomach. He is a high energy Labradoodle and this food helps keep him healthy! March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good for sensitive stomachs My dog has a sensitive stomach and this dog food has never been a problem. It also keeps our lab's coat shiny. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Baxter loves it I have been feeding baxter the large breed puppy lamb and rice and now he is on the adult. He loves it and his coat looks great. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for Skin & Coat I started feeding my puppy Natural Choice Lamb & Rice when he was a puppy. He was allergic to chicken and corn and this brand of food was recommended to me by a friend. I have fed this food for 8 years now and my dog's skin and coat is in great condition. He doesn't have skin allergies and his coat is soft & shiny. Definately worth spending a little more money for the quality of this food. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by all natural no chemical preservatives This is the best dog food we have by far ever given our dog. She used to break out in a rash every time we changed her bag of food, until we switched to Nutro. There are no added chemicals or preservatives, and its all natural. We love the results! March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Favorite dog food This is a great quality dog food with no by products - one of few out there. A great food for a great price, something you just can't beat! Put your loved one on this dog food, and you will not regret it!! March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous coat and great muscle tone. I have used Nutro Natural Choice Lamb and Rice dry dog food for 21 years.When I was a German Shepherd Dog breeder in the '90's I used the puppy formula for my litters.My pups were strong,healthy and vigorous eaters.I wouldn't use anything else!Now I have an adult German Shepherd I rescued from the pound.She was scrawny,had loose stools and a dull coat.After only 6 months she has gained 30 pounds,has a gorgeous,shiny coat and produces small compact stools.She was hyperactive when I got her but she has become a well-adjusted,family dog I believe due to her Nutro diet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT product!! I have 3 large breed dogs, one with a sensitive stomach, and I could not find a dog food that she would keep down. I tried this dog food and I was so amazed, it was the first one that agreed with her. All the dogs coats are shiny and soft. This is a wonderful product, I would recommend it to anyone, even a March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by I would never choose anything else I just love my pets and want the best for them in every way. My dogs have never had any adverse reactions to Natural Choice. Their skin and coat look great because of the formula of Natural Choice I really believe in this product. Give it a try your pets will love it. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our greyhound loves it Chloe is our third Greyhound and loves the large breed lamb and rice formula. Our other two greys lived to be 12 & 15 years respectively and thrived on the senior formula. Their coats were soft and shiny and they had as much energy as you might expect from healthy seniors. We would recommend this food to anyone who wants the best for their dog. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by PERFECT PRODUCT FOR LARGE BREED DOG My three year old English Mastiff really likes this Lamb and Rice blend. She self manages her intake and has maintained her weight for the last six months. Her intake has been the same since she was one year old (eight cups). At 160# it is important that she not gain additional weight for prevention of potential health problems related to weight. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! We've been feeding our two chocolate labs this food since we got them. (Puppy type first). They have excellent coats and people always remark on how nice they look. One of the main reasons we got this product was because they were big dogs and because the one has hip problems. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by easy to serve I have a 1 year old Chocolate Lab who was having trouble digesting her former dog food, it was a premium brand, and my daughter suggested that I try your lamb and rice for puppies (she was 9 months old at the time).Wow what a difference, she now has very regular movements.Her coat is also very healthy and her dry skin is improved.thank you for such a great dog food March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product yields strong and healthy dogs! Our French Mastiff started his life out on the Nutro Large Breed puppy lamb & rice formula and progressed into the Adult formula. At four years old, he is the picture of health and fitness. He loves his Nutro Lamb & Rice so it is a pleasure at feeding time. We receive nothing but compliments on his beautiful shiny red coat and muscular structure. Nutro is well worth the cost because we save on vet bills with a well-nourished dog who has a strong immune system. Not to mention that the high protein formula without fillers reduces body odor. We made the mistake of switching him to a less expensive food a couple of years ago and we almost immediately noticed his developing an odor. When we put him back on the Nutro, the odor disappeared. We will never feed anything but Nutro for the benefit of our beloved Beauregard and for our own benefit! March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Brand! It's all natural; it's a little pricy but well worth it - a healthier brand of dog food and my dog LOVES it!! March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is a lifesaver Nutro has been a lifesaver for our Mastiff, Sammy! March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth price spent for High Quality Food Not only have I been impressed but really happy with Natural Choice. Within a few weeks of switching to this brand, my Golden's coat started looking healthier and shinier. Also, i notice she doens't go through as much food as before because this brands main ingredient is meat and not the filler stuff like rice meal, corn meal, etc. It is a little bit more than your more common brands of dog food but it isi worth the price spent for the quality of their product.
