Rated 5 out of 5 by For good health We have two rescue dogs, both are Cocker Spaniels. The first we rescued is a five year old male that had Colitus or was diagnosed with it. We were given a bottle of medicine with him to control it. We switched him to Lamb and Rice small bites and immediately saw result in his health. Within a week we had taken him off his medicine for colitus and his coat became soft and thick. We put him on small bites because he ate so fast and did not chew it properly. He also gained 10 much needed pounds.Our second rescue came to us about 5 pounds underweight but since her desireable weight was only 20 pounds, she looked terrible, and her coat was very dry and much like a brush would feel. After 3 weeks on the same food as our other dog her coat improved and she also put on her much needed weight. Stools for both dogs are of the correct consistency and she is also thriving on the food. I have reccomended this food to several people and all have been very happy with the results and continue using it. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has healthy ingredients. My dogs have used Nutro lamb and rice small bites for 20+ years and have always had a healthy coat and weight.Small bites are great for ultra hungry dogs to better digest and enjoy their food experience. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is the best period I have had my Shetland sheep dog on this food for over 8 years, the quality of her coat and skin are absolutly second to none. I tried this product at the recomendation of our local supplier who stated that there are none better and he was right. Additionally Star loves the taste of this food, when I fill the storage container from the bag she has to have her nose at the container and will always sneek out a couple of bites. I recommend this product without hesitation. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog loves it - and it's good for him too Love this food - it has changed my small dog's life. Since moving to Florida, Jekyll became miserable with skin allergies. After switching to Nutro food a few years ago, his skin and floridian experience changed dramatically for the best. Plus, it must taste good because he loves to eat it! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for allergies. Since switching our rough coat collie to Nutro lamb meal and rice he no longer suffers from hot spot outbreaks caused by other products. This has been a great relief for all of us. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has maintained my dogs well. I have been feeding this product for several years to my dogs. I compete in performance sports with my dogs and they need to be kept in top shape. This food helps me guarantee that they have the nutrients they need and their coats are always beautiful and the hold their weight well. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Oscar the Weiner has no more bumps! My weiner dog is my life! I am one of those CRAZY pet parents! I have always fed my dog, what I thought to be high quality food. I noticed he started getting these small skin bumps and his face glands were swollen. I immediatly took him to the Vet and my vet recommended that I change his dog food IMMEDIATLY! I began searching online, price didn't matter.Oscar and I were driving to visit Grandma when we passed a Nutro production plant on Interstate I-40- just pass lebanon, TN. Oscars NOSE went crazy! Once we got to Grandmas, I went to buy Nutro at a local pet shop and within weeks his skin bumps were gone, his face glands were normal size, his coat was super shiny, and I believe he just felt better! Oscar is my world and I will ONLY buy him the best! Nutro it is!! The small bites of course! Thank you for caring as much as us Pet Parents do about the quality and products that are used to make pet food. I thank you and Oscar REALLY thanks you!! HE LOVES NUTRO! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dakota loves this Food We got our dog from the pound 6 years ago. She has always been a picky eater and we had a really hard time getting her to eat her food. We did everything of the sort. We picked up a bag of the Natural Choice and it was no turning back for us. She loves it. We feel better knowning that she loves her food. Thank you Nutro February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Dogs Love It! I have two doxies that have allergies and this food came recommended to me by the company that did the allergy testing. My dogs love, love, love this food. It keeps their coats silky and shiny and keeps them in peak health. I wouldn't feed any other food to my dogs!! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by What a difference! Our 50lb lab mix, Komet and 8lb maltese, Pickles, are on Nutro Natural and WOW! What a difference! Their coats are shiny and soft. No more flakes and less shedding shedding than before. It has regulated their digestive system (no more stinky gas). They love the food! It's the first thing on both their minds in the morning. Thank you for such a great product and all the effort you put into making this food quality. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for small dogs I have a mini dachshund, who has a sensitive stomach. She was eating store brand food when I got her from the breeder, but she just picked at it, never really ate her food. When she started with the stomach issues, I put her on the puppy formula small bites, which she loved! When she reached adult age, I switched her to the adult formula. She loves the small bites, cleans up her food, and has a beaufitul haircoat and lots of energy. No more stomach issues either! I would reccomment this to anyone with a small dog, not just because of the sensitivity, but its just an overall good dog food for smaller breeds! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product As a new dog owner, I thought all dog food was the same until I found out my new (resuce) dog had seizures. I was told to find a better dog food (no corn products). So I changed to Nutro Small Bites. I can honestly say that my dogs seizures almost stopped completely. The bites are small even for my other rescue who has very little teeth. Great product. Glad I found it. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best all around food I have fed Nurto Natural Lamb and Rice for over 20 years to a variety of dog types and sizes. The small bites just made my life easier at mealtime - now with one big dog and 2 small dogs it was a challenge buying food - with the small bites I feed it to all the dogs and everyone is happy at mealtime. The lamb and rice formula was great when my lab had allergy problems. All of my dogs enjoy a super shiny coat and the natural glucosamine from the lamb helps with their joints. I have tried other products and formulas and I think this one is the most consistent performer out there. Thanks February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our Little Lovebug Can Chew it! Our lovely cockapoo Pepper has always had trouble chewing large pieces of food. She would hold it in her mouth and whimper until we broke it up into smaller pieces. That's why the Small Bites formula is so great! She has no problem eating it and licks her bowl clean - after she's sure there are no more table scraps coming her way. February 17, 2011
