Rated 5 out of 5 by Mr Robert Cianfarani I imported a Cane Corso pup that was having digestive problems @ first i thought it was the flight , Being on another brand BLU for sometime I was recomended to swith to Nutro Large breed and when I did the stools became manageable and the weught he had lost was replaced in no time , He is now 8 months grouwing, thick full of energy, I would recomend Nutro to anyone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Boxer puppy doesn't like it For some dogs, I'm sure this is great, but our boxer puppy does not eat it very well. Most of the time she will leave a huge portion unless we add a little warm water. She is 7 months old. Her stools are not formed very well at all and they smell awful. We previously had her on the chicken and oatmeal large breed puppy, and it did the same thing. We have brought her to the vet several times and she is healthy seemingly. I'm not sure what our next move will be. She obviously isn't a fan. Every dog is different and I'm sure it is great for some, but sadly it isn't working for us. July 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I rescued a pup from a shelter that was feeding him science diet. It made him incredibly ill and we spent a lot of time at the vet. I tried switching his food and in two days he was as good as new. July 9, 2013
