Rated 5 out of 5 by my white male pit and white female pit my male pit had real bad skin allergies he had almost no hair on his tale and backend... i was so stressed cuz i had done everything for him and nothing was working.... he was so misreable his self... so i went to petsmart and spoke with a lady about his skin condition and she told me he was alergic to the dogfood i was feeding him and told me to try nutro natrual choice lamb meal and potatoe... so i did and a week into feeding him his hair was almost grown back and he sure felt a hundred percent better.... my female had ear infection problems and now she has not had any at all.... i see a major difference with my dogs from this food... i will never feed them anything else May 13, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Where did our "Grain Free Large Breed" go? My 134# lab does well on the Grain Free Adult Lamb Meal & Potato, but the Large Breed Formula had Glucosamine in it for joint and bone health. With a large size and very active 4 yr. old lab, I felt the glucosamine was an added benefit. Wish Nutro would bring it back. I might also mention that the Grain Free Adult is pricey and sometimes it is difficult to find. That is why I'm rating the product only 4 stars and not 5. Also, the recommended feeding amount only goes up to a 65# dog. What are the recommdated amounts for my large dog? February 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by dog allergies I love the lamb and potato grain free dog food.My dog Zoey has had allergies to food since she was 6 monthes old .She had one ear infection after another.Know she is comfortable in her old age .The only problem I am having is to find it, also the cost.But really great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by YEA! THANKS NUTRO! GRAIN FREE IN LG BREED PLEASE!! I am so happy Nutro makes this grain free lamb and potato. My German Shepard had horrible rashes etc. After several trips to the vet and no solution I switched to this food. His rashes went away within two first he was on large breed formula...then Nutro no longer makes it so I switched to Large Breed Lamb and Rice.....and his rashes started back up. Now i am back on lamb and potato adult food...and his rashes are going there a chance you can bring back the Lamb and Potatp Large Breed food? That would be great! December 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally I have been fighting Ayd's alergies for years. It had gotten to the point that I was giving him 4 reg. Benadryl a day. A week and half into giving him this food almost everything cleared up.It is a bit pricey but I figure I'll save money in the long run(as in less trips to the vets office to get a different allergy med).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grain free saved the day My Sadi has been sick for a long time, going to vets and getting more tests done. Finally I had enough of vets! on my own I tried grain-free lamb and since that day, she has not gotten sick.No more vomiting blood, no blood in stools. Thank you for making grain-free. Sadi is a lot happier schnauzer. December 6, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by New and Improved?? Not so much I really wish that the old formula in the large breed was still available.The new formula now requires you to feed your pet twice as much as the old formula and unfortunately they do not increase the amount of food in the package to compensate for this, all at the same price. So the "improved", only means they have effectively made a product you are now going to have to buy twice as much. December 3, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Missing large breed too! My lab was doing great with the large breed formula. So unhappy that it is no longer available! The larger morsels were perfect. Any chance it will be brought back? August 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful, great natural ingredients I have 3 dogs. 2 Shelties & 1 Rough Coated Collie. All 3 eat at the same time - all eat Gluten Free Nutro and has been for the last 3 years. All 3 just love the food. August 17, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Missing Large Breed Really miss the large breed version. My Great Dane is super sensitive. It took us three years of diarrhea before we found this awesome dog food but we only had it for a few months and now we have to start our search again. Disappointing to say the least. I guess the Adult formula is either identical or close to the Large Breed formula, the only difference being the size of the kibble, but that one difference is all the difference to us. Not diarrhea again, but not as "good" as it was either. August 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog loves it my dog loves it and it's good for hiim. My son's dog comes over and I can't keep the dish full. my dog has a beautiful coat and lots of energy May 22, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by My baby loves it! My blue pitbull has had skin issues since she was a baby. We have tried several brands including the most expensive ones only to be bought at high end snooty doggie health food stores that turned her into a "baboon but"! she has so many food allergies its almost impossible to determine what exact ingredient puts her in an allergie breakout.. We tried this bag last week and wow the difference in her energy levels is amazing! We noticed immediately how much energy she has and she cant wait to eat it. In the morning she busts open the door for it. She loves it and we have noticed a much happier, energized dog with a beautiful coat!so far, so great!! March 7, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Choice! My dog loves the grain free and I love that it is less of mess in the yard to clean up! He has allergies and we have always used Nutro products. This is the best yet. February 24, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great! My mixed breed, Sita, is allergic to several kinds of grain, and finding an affordable Grain-Free food was a nightmare! I found Nutro Grainless and it was a hit! Sita loves to eat it, her ears don't turn black anymore, and we're both extremely happy with the product! December 19, 2011
