Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for sensitive stomachs! We have two dogs with sensitive stomachs. They were getting sick a few times per week. We decided to switch brands and chose Natural Choice Lamb & Rice. Since the change, they have been happy and healthy. Thank you Nutro! February 20, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is one of the best on the market I've been feeding my 6 1/2 year old weimaraner the lamb & rice formula since he was a puppy. He has a sensitive stomach and I was very upset a few summers back when I wasn't able to purchase the lamb & rice formula. I had tried a few of your other products because I had no other choice but Rocco didn't like them as much as he did the lamb & rice. I was so happy when it became available again. Everyone always comments on how beautiful Rocco's coat is. He is a very healthy & active dog who still acts like a puppy. I attribute his health to your food product. February 20, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best Dog Food For Sensitive Skin I used to breed and show Dalmatians. That is when I started using Nutro. I've changed formulas for specific needs, but I've always had great results with the Nutro brand. I now own 3 large dogs and they all eat the Lamb and Rice Small Bites. February 19, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good, but Really Pricey We have been using this dog food for all of our greyhounds for over 13 years and our dogs always seem to enjoy it. However, this is one of the most expensive dog foods you can buy! And now that the "buy 10 bags get one free" program has been discontinued, it remains very expensive! We are seeking to find an alternative dog food for our dogs because at over $50.00 a really adds up in a years time! February 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Every bag continues to be great & consistent Since this is our 3rd black lab in 25 years, our first lab was not on Nutro, however lab #2 was when we got him at 11 mo. Ever since then (1994) we have had great success with Nutro Large Breed Lamb & Rice, consistency always there along with our labs coats which shine everyday. We so believe in your product & tell all our dog friends to use Nutro. Our dog stays so healthy as we believe it's the great Nutro product keeps him in good shape. February 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for a large breed adult dog As a 100lb. rottweiler, Bruno needs all the nutrition and health benefits he can get from his food. Nutro lamb and rice formula does just that. He is a happy and outgoing dog, and that is significantly enhanced due to the food we feed him. February 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best dog food ever! I have my yellow lab on this food and would not even considering changing her food. She loves the food, but it has made her coat shiny and I feel she is so much healthier eating this food over other brands. She is a happy dog and I am a happy customer with this food. February 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for large breed dogs with food allergies! We have two Great Danes, both over 130 pounds. Our first Dane we have had since he was 8 weeks old, and began feeding him the Nutro large breed puppy food. He did great on the food and grew up to be a healthy adult. About the time he was weaning from puppy food to adult food, we added a second Dane to our family. She was a beautiful blue merle that we adopted from a local shelter. She was about a year old and the vets at the shelter spayed her and also performed gastropexy at the same time. We were instructed to feed her a name brand sensitive stomach food for a couple of weeks while she healed from surgery. I had done a LOT of research on foods for our first Dane, so I knew this other brand was not the best choice. So we fed Nutro Sensitive Stomach to her and she did great! When we started to wean her to regular food, we decided to try some of the expensive 'all natural' foods. We tried several different expensive brands and our female Dane had diarrhea with all of them. We took her to the vet to ensure she did not have any medical issues and she was cleared, so we knew it had to be the food. So after several months of trying the expensive foods, we switched back to Nutro and our female Dane has not had had any problems since! We have been using it for several years and are VERY happy with the results. Both of our Danes have beautiful, shiny coats and are very healthy! February 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Food Ever We used this food for 11+ years with our Weimaraner. She loved it and we now use it on our chocolate lab. they love it and inhale it every time we put it out for them to eat February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for our Boxer This is the only dog food we have found that our 2 year old Boxer can eat that does not cause him to have stomach pain. We love it and so does he! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for allergies ,Awesome product our old english bullbog is allergic to so many foods..Natures choice works great no more intense scratching & hair loss! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by the only dog food we will use! We adopted our greyhound, Gipper, 2 years ago and have fed him Nutro Adult lamb meal & rice from Day One. He was sensitive to chicken-based foods, and greyhounds in general can have troubles with diarrhea, but we have had amazing success with this food! Not to mention, he loves it. Additionally, we get stopped constantly by people telling us how beautiful and shiny his coat is! Actually, while shopping at a pet store, a Nutro representative stopped us and asked what we fed him, because his weight is perfect and his coat is so beautifully shiny--she was thrilled to hear it was Nutro! Our dog is like our child, so we strive to provide him with the best of everything--and Nutro fulfills our goal of providing him with the best food! February 18, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Allie Recommends We have a 3 year old Golder Retriever and she loves her dog food. She has a shiny coat and doesn't shed as much as with other dog foods. The additional cost of the Nutro brand is hard to justify sometimes in this tough economy. February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by i love it. I love this product and would not buy no other brand at all.For the the price the product is good. February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Dog Food Our dog Maggie has been on Nutro dog food since she was a puppy. She is full of energy.We tried her once on other brands of dog food,we went back to Nutro. The other foods she did not do well on. She loves the lamb&rice dog food. This food gives her a very shiney coat. She just loves it! Will never use anything else. February 18, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by My dog is a stinker Our dog is being a real stinker. Ever since we gave him this food, he will not eat anything else. We even tried mixing it with another kind, he'd pick out what he wanted and leave the rest on the floor! Do you think he might be spoiled or just a Food Guru!!! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent choice of food We started my dog on this approximately 2 years ago. Itis a great food. Her coat is always shiny and beautiful. I would recommend this food. February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Dog Food We have been feeing our two Border Collies this food and it has been great! We do not have any digestion issues and the best part is that with using this food our dogs very seldom have to be bathed! Their coats are shiny and no dog odor that you typically get with less expesnive dog foods. February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Enhabnces shiney and beautiful coats. Our girls (Latte, Decaf and Slipah) prefers the Lamb Meal and Rice best of all. February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is the best pet food product on the market!! Nutro Natural Choice Large Breed Adult Lamb Meal & Rice Formula Dog Food is the only brand I feed my 10+ year old dog. I have tried other brands of food for my dog and because he is so skin and stomach sensitive, this is the only brand of pet food that does not upset his stomach or make his skin break out. The name says it all "Natural Choice". They use nothing but the finest ingredients in all of their products and they have a true understanding of what it takes to make sure your pet get's the daily nutrients needed to maintain good health internally and externally. Not only does my dog get the daily nutrients needed to maintain good health, but he also loves the taste of the food and gets very excited when it is time to feed him. I would never choose any other brand of food for my dog. I am a huge pet lover and am a lifelong consumer of Nutro Natural Choice Dog Food. I highly recommend there brand of pet foods to every pet owner!! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our dogs have beautiful coats! My wife and I have been feeding our dogs this brand of Nutro's Natural Choice dry food for the last 7 years. We have two large pups - Jester, 7 (husky-lab mix) and Opie, 3 (boxer-lab mix) - who both prefer this food to any other we've ever fed them. As you may imagine, our dogs have very different coats. Jester's is longer with an undercoat and has a soft, husky-type texture to it, while Opie has more of a short boxer-type fur. Many people over the years (including multiple vets) have commented on the fact that both dogs have such a beautiful, healthy shine to their coats. We can attribute this to none other than Nutro because, if for some reason the dogs have to eat any other type of food for a few days, they lose their usual polished look. This lets us know that Nutro works from the inside out to provide our dogs with healthy, hearty nutrition. February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product saved my dog's life. I have a black lab, 4years old, named Dude. A short time after we got him , I noticed that he was itching a lot. After treating for fleas, he kept on itching. A friend of mine said it could be allergies to his food, a generic commercial brand. He was starting to develope hot spots and losing his beautiful hair, (which wasn't so beautiful anymore, dull and rough). I found your product at my local farm store, recommended by the clerk, and started him on it. I noticed a difference immediately. His energy came back, and within a week he'd stopped itching, within two his hair started shining and growing back. Thank you for making this product available. I believe that it has kept my dog alive and enjoying life. Thank you. E. WoodPS. My kitty likes it , too! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dogs love it!! This is such a great food, we own two French Mastiffs and a Labrador Retriever and they all three love this food, and thanks to this food they are are in perfect health and have absolutely beautiful coats! We just love this food and I highly recommend it to all my friends!! February 18, 2011

Rated 5 out of 5 by I would feed them nothing else. Both my westie and scottie eat Nutramax Lamb and Rice. They both have beautiful coats,clean teeth and are the perfect pictures of health. We have experenced no skin allergies while using this food.With other food brands this has been a problem. They love this food and are healthy because they eat it. I would feed them nothing else. February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Nutrition for Large Breed I have a German Shepherd with a sensitive stomach (typical of the breed). Since switching him to Nutro Lamb & Rice for large breed his digestive problems have improved 100%. February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for mild food allergies I rescued a dog from a life of being locked up. When we brought Rocky home he had bald spots in all the classic places for having a corn allergy. Three weeks after coming to live with his new family and being on Nutro, he had hair growing back and his skin was looking great! One year later. Rocky is loving his Nutro Natural Choice, not having any food allergy problems and maintaining a proper weight! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Improved health I have four rescue dogs. They were all in horrible health when they came to us. We didn't feed them Nutro at first, but thankfully discovered Nutro. These four dogs have just become so much more healthier and happier since they have been eating Nutro. Two had skin conditions and now since feeding them Nutro, they no longer suffer from the itching and hair loss they had. I tell all my dog owner friends about Nutro and many of them have switched also and told me how much their dog's health and appearance have improved. Thank you so much for such an outstanding product! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for our big "baby" Our American Bulldog is an impressive 150lbs! The large breed Lamb and Rice Formula is perfect for him due to his size and skin sensitivities. We got him at 9 months old, and prior to him coming into our lives he was eating what I would consider to be a inferior food. After reasearching his breed I found American Bulldogs are commonly afflicted with sensitivties to chicken protein. My immediate thought was to switch him to a Lamb & Rice formula, and Nurtro Natural Choice was my first choice! We have been very pleased with his skin and coat condition ever since we made the switch! February 18, 2011
