Rated 4 out of 5 by This is a good product. My husband and I thought this was a good product; however, our dog didn't like it. We acutally feed her Nutro Ultra Large Breed Adult and that has seemed to be the best product for our dog. March 1, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love Nutro Natural Choice Products!! We have a Goldendoodle "Brewski" we brought him home at 8wks old and the vet put him on Science Diet, problem was he wouldn't eat it. We tried Nutro Natural Choice for Puppies, he loved it. He grew into a 80lb amazing, smart, fun-loving member of our family. We have always had him on the Natural Choice Large Breed products and found he was best suited for the Lamb and Rice formula. He is the picture of health with a beautiful coat and we are so very glad we found your affordable product that is so good for him. Thanks Nutro for your great products!! February 27, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product This is a very good dog food. My dog loves it, does not throw it up (unlike other foods), and the dog coat looks great. February 25, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth every penny!! Since putting my three Golden Retreivers on Large Breed Adult lamb Meal & Rice Formula Adult Dog food I have saved my dogs lives and restored their youth. I needed a product that listed meat as first ingredient. All the other dog foods started out with wheat, or corn which I learned is killing our dogs. I have been feeding the Natural Choice Dog food to them for five years now and they act and look healthy again. I tried switching back to other foods and within a few weeks their health would suffer. Within a few weeks back on Natural Choice they returned to happiness and health. I would pay any price to keep them on Natural Choice. It's only right to make sure your pets get the best and live a long healthy and energetic life. Other foods were killing my dogs right before my eyes and when I switched to Natural Choice I knew right away this is what they deserve. February 25, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Loving this Product My dogs love this product. I have never seen them eat so good. February 25, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding difference in my dogs skin and coat! Renji, a blue coat Lab and Australian Shepard mix, was previously not taken care of properly when I adopted him on his 1yr birthday. He had severely irritated and flakey skin and dull thinning coat.Through a Nutro specialist, I found out that Pets need Linoleic acid to help with their coats.This product contains Linoleic Acid (min.) 3.00% !!This is much more than other brands that have usually less than 1%.Renji's skin has healed, and he his able to shine above all other dogs.There was no need for expensive supplements, just Natural Choice Adult Lamb and Rice.Thanks!! February 25, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE IT!!!!! I originally switched to NUTRO to help my older, less active Black Lab loose some weight. During the process, she not only shed the extra weight but we noticed an amazing difference to her coat, not only extremely shiny and full, but the food change actually made a difference with the hair she shed - the bonus was she had less waste since there are not alot of fillers in the NUTRO product. Sadly, she died almost a year ago due to Liver Cancer, however, the day before she passed, our vet was even commenting on how beautiful her coat was, even knowing how sick she was. He was impressed! We now have a Chocolate Lab that has ONLY eaten NUTRO products since she joined our family. Not only is her coat beautiful but she has never had a single stomach upset. I am an extremely happy customer - I will ONLY give my dogs NUTRO products! February 24, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product for Large Breed Dogs The Lamb and Rice for adult large breed dogs has been great for my Newfie,He was having a problem with his joints and his skin and coat were drying out from his old food.Once we started him on the lamb and rice formular his skin and coat cleared up and he was moving around without any problems.I am very happy with the results after switching him to Nutro Natural choice dog food.It might cost alittle more than other dog food but my dog's health is worth it. February 24, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by My dog loves it My dog Izzy is a German Shephard, and loves this dog food. She has food allergies, and EPI, and we have tried many, many dog foods. Natural Choice Large Breed does not cause her allergies to flare up. February 24, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Overall great quality product... I own a wonderful chocolate lab, "Luck E. Dog". I took him in at eight months old. I realized early on that he had a very sensitive stomach and skin issues. I tried several types of food over a period of time. I found that the Large Breed Nutro Natrual Lamb Meal & Rice Formula was the answer to his needs. I started him out on the puppy formula graduating him to the adult formula. He no longer has stomach or skin issues. He is a healthy dog with a beautiful shiny coat and muscular build. He is a very well loved, happy part of our family!!! I highly recommend this product... February 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this product, a "natural choice!" I love Nutro large breed Natural Choice products! Maggie, now 6 years old (was started out on Natural choice Large breed puppy chow) is as beautiful and healthy and energetic as ever! She loves to "play" with my 2 and 5 year old sons. I get lots of compliments on her shiny coat, and I feel great knowing she is getting good nutrition. I have researched and compared other brands/ingredients. I would tell anyone to try Nutro, I am so confident in this product. Will never switch. Keep making this, please! If you are thinking about trying Nutro, get it, you will never match the nutrition in another brand, this is the best. February 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by GERMAN SHORTHAIR POINTER My dog Raven developed an allergy to Chicken. My vet changed her to the lamb and rice formula. What a wonderful product. February 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our dogs (as well as us) love this product! We love how this food gives our dogs the energy to run and play. It also helps keep their skin and coat looking wonderful and soft! February 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dogs love this! We have 2 boxers and both eat this. I have never had any type of digestive problems with either one of them and give all the glory to this food. It's well tolerated and they can't eat it fast enough!! I like the fact that the ingredients do not include all the fillers the other dog foods list. This was my main reason for buying it and the continued use of it. I will never switch to anything else. February 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My three dogs love this food... I have a yellow lab, a German shepherd, and a pit bull. They won't eat any other food. We buy this religiously. Their coats are beautiful, and it fills them up. I hope Nutro always offers this type of food. It's a winner. February 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product My female Bernese Mtn Dog loves Nutro large breed lamb and rice. While on it she is maintaining a healthy weight and coat. February 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dog's best friend My dog max is four years old now and I have had him on the same supermarket brand since he was born. Recently he lost all interest in his food and I became worried. Working at a pet store, I had always heard about the benefits of Nutro food and seen people buy it buy the truck load so I decided to give it a try and let me just say- Max and I Love it! He gets excited again to eat his dinner and scarfs it down like he never has before- even as a puppy. I feel foolish now for not changing foods sooner- You have a new buyer for life! Thank you Nutro company for making a food my dog loves and that is the best for him! (and not to mention the shiny coat!) February 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by No more itching! My dog loves this food. When eating a competitor's diet, we noticed that she itched quite a bit. When she was transitioned over to this Nutro diet we noticed a great improvement in her coat - and she stopped itching! Won't feed anything else (how can you improve on this?) February 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best thing to happen to my mastiff! Last year I inherited a 4 year old mastiff (french and Neapolitan mix) who was over weight and lethargic. He had a terrible reaction to most food he consumed so I immediately started him on a "no people food" diet. This helped but it seemed like the food he had been fed when I got him (Pedigree garbage) was just running right through him and make bowel movements unpredictable and inconsistent or it would make him throw up. I did my research about what a large dog needs and what I could afford since he eats at about a 40lb bag a month. Nutro seemed like the best route to go, I IMMEDIATELY noticed a difference with his stomach problems and bowel movements. Within 6 months he dropped 10 lbs and as the vet put it "was the perfect weight for his frame" his coat was also noticeably softer and shinier, he regularly gets complemented on it. He has more energy, stopped throwing up his food and his bowel movements are like clockwork! which makes it easier to give him the care he needs with my busy schedule. so its a win win situation. Pretty much my dog is a happy guy now, I do switch up his food with whatever is on sale in the bonus size bag from the Nutro natural choice line that month at the pet store, and it does not upset his tummy at all. February 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by A shiny coat and healthy dog I feed my black lab Service Dog this until he was seven and switched to the Ultra Senior. His coat was shiny and he was always full of energy and ready to work. This is a great dog food! February 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Nutrition I have fed Nutro products for the last 5 years, after feeding Wellness. I spoke with a co. representative in a store about the nutrition and was able to confirm his info. After comparing the ingredients to other cheaper foods, this is the best dog food on the market for the price. February 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product saved my dogs life! I have a 6 yr. old Siberian Husky, who for the first 4 months of his life was nothing but diarrhea ! I had tried all the cheap brands. When a friend of mine recommended Nutro, I was skeptical. After just one meal, his stools were normal. I was so relieved! I would never switch now. Thank you Nutro!! February 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by my dog has allergies I/we love this product and feed all 4 of our Chocolate labs this, 1 for the allergies and three because it made the 1 so healthy that why would I feed the other 3 food that has corn and wheat in it. From an early age about 6 months, our Moose would lose his hair on his bum, nose adn get very bad ear infections, black guck and smelly, nad he didn't like to have his head touched. on the advise of the vet we started to feed him higher end foods , you know the real expensive per bag food etc. None of these worked, even with the eight week transtion. walking through a pet store one day, we ran into a nutro rep, who recommended this product. Thought why not, and it worked. eight weeks later his ear infections cleared up, and he's never had one since. grew the hair back on the nose and bum, and his coat has stayed very shiny and soft. He's now 8 years old. So when we aquired the other three labs, there was no question about keeping the same food. February 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nothing better for a great coat! We have a 5 year old blue doberman. I've been told that as a group they generally have skin and coat issues; we would have to agree. He has a beautiful coat from his shoulders up and his hips back, but the only thing that helps keep hair on his midsection is Large breed Lamb and Rice formula. We went for a week to our cabin last summer and although I packed a bag of food for him, I forgot it at home. We were in a very rural area and I couldn't find Nutro products for him. I tried another brand of Lamb and Rice food, before the week was over he was itching like he wanted out of his own skin! He ended up with sores and bald patches which took about 4-6 weeks to heal and turn around one we got home and back on the "good " food. Never again will we forget his food when we travel! February 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is wonderful! This product gives wonderful coat shine, no GI problems, limits stool due to very limited by product. I have recommended Nutro to every single friend I have! February 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great formula My APBT has horrible skin allergies. Since she has been eating the lamb and rice formula her outbreaks have gone down to once or twice a year versus five or six times a year before. Dixie loves the food and I always receive compliments on her beautiful white coat. February 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Healthy and Delicious, my dog loves it! My Golden Retriever used to have issues eating other dog foods, but once we got on this one, all has been great! Not only is this gentle for your dog's stomach, it is also very healthy and nutritious! I highly recommend to everyone! February 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by WOW coat GLISTENS in the sun!!! My Lab's coat has such a sheen in the sunny it looks as if she has just been groomed daily...I have told many buy NUTRO you'll get the same affect on your pet. I swear by your food. I will not use any other brand and haven't since i first started her on your large breed puppy food. She is now 4 years old and i'm a true believer.....Thank you Nutro for such a high quality affordable dog food. February 21, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Food Before feeding this food to my boxer mix, she would get the occasional sour stomach. Switching to Nutro has given her tons of energy(even though she already has enough) and she no longer feels sick to her stomach! It has been great, I highly recommend for any dogs with sensitive stomachs. February 20, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great food! We tried several foods with my lab and she had terrible allergies and stomach problems. When we switched her to this food, she has been so much better. February 20, 2011
