Rated 4 out of 5 by Great food I have two Pomeranians and they love this food. I like the fact that Nutro provides wholesome ingredients. My dogs coat is shiny and healthy, they also have lots of energy. I would recommend this dog food. I am currently using the lamb and rice formula but am considering the small breed formula. I also like the fact that this is a quality food at an affordable price March 13, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dogs love it I have 2 dogs and both of them love Small Bites Lamb Meal & Rice Formula. One of dogs has skin allergies and by trial and error we found the formula that suits him well. Thank you. Oxana March 13, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent coat I have two Dogs a yorkishon and a cavapoo both dogs were raised on Nutro and are now adults on Nutro. They have the best fur of any dog I have ever seen and are both very strong for their size and I owe it all to Nutro. March 13, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Whole Crew Is On This Food! I have 6 small dogs that I feed this food to (4 which are rescues). This formula is especially helpful for their skin issues and the small size nuggets are a plus! A medical condtion prevents me from working anymore, so I sure could use a 1 Year Supply of this food. Thanks for considering me & my Fur Babies! March 12, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good to the last kibble! We have 2 Muttigrees and 1 is somewhat of a finicky eater. He definitely does better with the smaller bite foods, but certain brands of foods just don't make his A-list and breakfast sits in the bowl mostly untouched. I'd been given some Nutro samples to try and both dogs LOVE them. No more having breakfast for dinner! Dogs coats are shiny and soft and both are active, healthy & happy. March 12, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Small bite just right My min pin Mitsy, is 4 years old now. When she was a puppy we used Eukanuba because that is what the breader used, but we had to buy a special oil substance to put over the food, that would keep her coat shinny. One day I was in the store looking to buy another bag, and they were just stocking the shelf with Nautural choice, the sales person there told me about it and it sounded like a great product, not to mention a few dollars cheaper. My dog loved it, and I loved that I no longer had to buy the bottled oil. Mitsy's coat is shinny, and soft, and I get many complements on how she looks. Even when I take her back to the breader when we are on vacation, she even comments on her look. I only wish that they would stock the shelves more with the small bite. It is usually out of stock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by My Pug and Dal devour it! My dogs are my babies and I would do anything for them! My Pug has a small screwed up mouth and the small bites are easy to eat for him. My Dalmatian has diet issues and the lamb is good for her! I tried (years ago) to change food once and the dogs refused the other Companies. I also take advantage of the rewards program and get a free bag every so often! Now that my Dal is 15 she has teeth issues and the small bites are easy for her to digest too! March 12, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dogs love this food! I have 8 small dogs of various sizes and each of them love small bites! The Chis skin and coats are smooth and shiny. The Min/poms have a thick lusterous coats. The Jack has lots of energy. The papillon has a beautiful flowing coat. The chiweenie....well hes a chiweenie....they all do great on this food!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I have 2 dogs. A rescued lab/retriever/ greyhound mix and a beagle. Originally I was buying 2 different dog foods for them. High energy for the mix and weight loss for the beagle. But they kept eating each others food. So I tried this one, and they both love it. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Nutrition! My parents starting using this dog food for our beagle who had a sensitive stomach when I was growing up. It worked really well for him so when we introduced two new beagles to our family it was the only brand they used. When I got married, my husband and I got two beagles of our own. THEY LOVE THIS FOOD!!! Its the only kind we buy. What can I say. I want the best nutrition for my dogs and its a bonus if they love it! March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by allergy free I needed to find a food that our English Bulldog, Ella was not allergic to.I spoke to a rep at Petsmart that recommended Nutro products. Ella seemed to be allergic to fillers in the other brand, so we tried Nutro. She LOVES it!We had used the other brand for years with our previous dogs, but now will be faithful to the healthy benefits of Nutro. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog loves these small bits I have 3 small dogs but only one of our dogs eat this selection of the Natural Choice Dog food. His name is Buddy. Buddy is 5 years old and is a Yorkshire Terrier. He is a very happy and healthy dog. He enjoys eating this dog food it is very good for his digestive system. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is the best food you can give your dog.. Our puggle, Hula, loves food. We jokingly refer to her as "our little vacuum cleaner" because we know if there's a crumb that hits the floor, she'll make quick work of it.That said, while Hula loves food of almost any kind, she is particularly fond of the Nutro we feed her for breakfast and dinner.After we take her out in the morning, she races inside in anticipation of what's to come. When I get to the cabinet that holds her food, I ask her, "are you ready for breakfast?" and watch as she twirls around in delight.We have tried a few other brands over time due to emergency or on the advice of a friend but have found none that she seems to enjoy as much as Nutro.I readily encourage all my friends who are dog owners to give their dog Nutro, as I know it will be received as well by their dogs as it is by Hula (okay, not every dog will twirl around in excitement, but I'm sure all dogs will enjoy it)! March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality Food We have tried many food types for our two yorkies and beagle. One of the yorkies is very particular, and the beagle has high energy. Since starting them on this Nutro blend we have had excellent results. All three dogs are eating more. They seem to really enjoy the food. Also, they have more energy. The yorkie who often would try to skip meals is trying to hog bowls.The best part is the ingredients that make up the food. Just compare them against the other brands and you will find that you are making the right decision with Nutro. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by the best there is for senstive tummys we have a 6 an half year old border collie, & when we took him to our vet as a new puppy he said this the food to feed him because they have sensative stomach he has been one healthey dog every since March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly reccomend the product My dog Princess a mixed breed Russel terrier was adopted from the Humane Society two years ago. She was eating Pedigree dog food for about a year when she suddenly wound not eat that food anymore. So I went to Pet Smart and I asked the Clerk which would be the best food for my dog. She very Quickly recommended Nutro Natural choice Lamb meal and Rice formula. Princess has been eating it ever since and loves the food. She is healthy and happy.i also use greenie for her teeth. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dogs LOVE this food My 3 dachshunds love Nutro. I also love Nutro because it is a natural and healthy dog food. I know when feeding my dogs Nutro they are getting the best nutrition possible. They will always be NUTRO fans. March 11, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Recommended My two love this stuff they do well on it and I will not feed them anything else since they do thrive on it. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for skin and coat We have two dogs - a Greater Swiss Mountain dog and some kind of Boston Terrier mix. Our Swissy's coat was poor at best. Her skin was dry and flaky, her fur was coarse and she shed like mad. At the pet food store one day, a Nutro rep talked to us about using Natural Choice Lamb and Rice. We decided to give it a shot. Expensive, but not as expensive as needing a new vacuum from the pet hair. Within about a week we could see a very noticable difference. Her skin stopped flaking and her coat got softer and shinier. We did at first see a markable increase in the hair she shed, but the Nutro rep had prepared us for the loss of the dead hair before it was healthier. It's like we have a new dog. Then the Boston mix found us and the kibbles were just a little too big for her, so we switched to the Small Bites version. That actually worked out great because the Swissy doesn't make quite the mess with the smaller kibbles. We feed them less than we would with the old brand we used and their skin and coats are 100% healthier. Yes, it's expensive food and yes, we were skeptical when the rep was telling us how much better she'd be with higher quality food, but we'll never change the food they're eating. It's worth every penny - not just because they look so much better, but definitely because of the huge reduction in shedding and they are far less gassy! Highly recommend trying this out if you have hair or skin issues with your dog. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Small "man-made" breeds My smaller breed is subject to stomach disorders and tooth decay if not kept on a proper diet.I used another brand for over 25 years but switched when I discovered they were constantly changing the ingredients.Natural Choice small bites has been my brand for many years now and my dogs coats are beautiful but most of all, they are very healthy, happy and their teeth build up less tarter.I am very pleased with Natural Choice small bites lamb and rice. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful coat and very healthy for my dog My 7 year old black and white English Springer Spaniel, Sofi has been on the Nutro small bites dog food since she was a puppy. My vet always says she is the most healthy dog. Her coat is so shiny and beautiful. Also he says her blood work is over the top. She is a very healthy happy dog. She makes me very happy and I hope I make her just as happy. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product for a lifetime From the day we adopted our Shih Tzu, Ralphie, we have fed him exclusively Small Bites Lamb & Rice (and some table scraps, much to my husband's dismay). The size of the nuggets is perfect for his tiny mouth. In 10 years, he has gained only 1 lb. The vet is always amazed and pleased at his physical condition and good health. His coat is soft and sleek, his playfulness has never diminished, his eyes are bright, his stools are always well-formed and easy to clean. He never has digestive problems. I think anyone with a small dog should use this product. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our dog can't wait for meal time! We have been using Nutro's Natural Choice for about 5+ years with our Australian Shepherd and Miniature Schnauzer. One had a sensitive stomach and the other a sensitive(dry) coat. I don't remember how long it took after the switch, but both dogs coats were so soft and shiny. Our Australian had reduced shedding and our Schnauzer no dandruff.The crazy part is with Nutro, the dogs both get so excited for meal time. More than any other dog food...I thought maybe there was something else in the ingredients!Thanks Nutro. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Small and Tasty Both my long-hair chihuahuas (one is 2.5 lbs and one is 9.5 lbs) love this! And I do think it helps their coat - I swear I see a real sheen since they've been eating this. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally, a food he will eat MY yorkiepoo Buddy was raised on spaghetti and meatballs by his former owner. I tried every food, wet and dry with no luck. I had a coupon for Nutro Natural Choice so I bought a small bag expecting the same response. To my surprise he loves the small bites lamb meal and rice formula. As a petsitter, I have now introduced many of my clients to Nutro with the same response from their dogs. Thank you for a good, nutritious and tasty product. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product My cockapoo puppy had a lot of digestive trouble early on, when we put him on the puppy lamb and rice, he loved it and stomach problems were under control. He has also always been a finicky eater, but we recently switched him to the adult version and he absolutley devours it. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best for all breeds! Have been feeding this to our two golden retrievers now age 4 and 11, as well as our 11 year old shih tzu for eight years. The food works well for the big dogs as well as the little one. Their coats are beautiful, teeth are clean and strong, and no problems with those yeasty ears that goldens can be prone to. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything Big and Small My golden retriever and 2 small dachsunds love this stuff!!!!!!! It is funny because I buy the small bites for the dachshund and large bites for golden retriever and they always swap bowls. They think the other one taste better, but it is the same lamb and rice formula hehehe xD I love how natural choice has all the flavors that come in bites for small dogs and large dogs. Also they dont have the corn stuff in it. GREAT STUFF!! everyone loves my dog's shiny coat. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog can't wait to eat My 2 year old golden retriever can't wait to eat everyday. He loves breakfast and dinner time. He wakes us in the morning with his bowl waiting for us to fill it up. he never leaves a crumb in his bowl. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog will not eat anything else Since the first time I bought this dog food for my Cockapoo, she will not eat anything else. She is very happy and healthy with this food. There are alot of dog foods out there that are alot cheaper, but this is what she likes so I will continue to buy it. I am unemployed and it is hard to pay for it, but I cut on what I need so she gets what she NEEDS! I tell all my friends about this dog food and let them know that they need to get it for their dogs! Thank you for giving us such a great meal for our children! March 10, 2011
