Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 44reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is great for puppy stomachs The Puppy Lamb and Rice formula has been excellent for my new little puppy's stomach. He has had no problem with digesting it and it is great for his sensitive stomach. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our Pug pup Lulu loves it Since we acquired Lulu as a puppy we wanted to give her the best we were recommended Natural Choice because it does not contain corn which can cause skin problems for pugs. She has been eating it ever since we switched her from whatever she was given before and she never complains. Always happy for her breakfast and dinner. No bowel problems always solid. Also switch to the chicken she loves both. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by great product This product works great with my puppy, it works to develop my puppy's digestion system. Prior to your product the breeder feed him Purina. That brand is the worst, you can smell the puppy food coming through his coat. I've used Nutro brand animal food for all my dogs and I will never use anything else. Great product! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Puppy always eats it! My puppy was brought home from the shelter and we were told to feed him a common brand of dog food found in the grocery store. I wasn't so sure that it was good for him. We went to Petsmart and they told us to check the ingredients in the food for nutrition information. What a shock to see what is in some of the foods, and the amount of fats were outrageous. This Lamb and Rice puppy food has never upset his puppy tummy and he's never gotten sick, even when we were introducing the new food. He loves this food and eats every last bite! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog loves it! My 4 month old puppy was a rescue dog. We decided to change his food, and seeing all the brands out there made it a little overwhelming. A lady at our local pet store turned us on to the puppy lamb and rice food. After we slowly changed his food from the old, he was so much more willing to eat and gets more excited for feeding time! The product is small enough for our small breed dog, and tasty enough to keep his attention. I would definitely recommend this product to others! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by great nutrition for puppies I've fed my puppy this since I got her. I'm on my second bag. My puppy loves the food and the nutrition is very satisfying. She is growing very well. It feeds her energy needs very well. The product digests easy. Her coat is getting beautiful. February 17, 2011
