Rated 5 out of 5 by Best dog food value As far as high end quality food for my dogs at a good price, this is the product for me. I enjoy the way my dogs look forward to feeding time, they actually get excited when they see me bring a fresh bag into the house! March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Only Nutro for us! My 11 year old chihuahua has always been a Nutro girl! and my 6 year old Rat Terrier enjoys it too. We love the small bites! Made the mistake of trying something different, once & only once! Nutro is definitely a high quality food and it shows in my dogs' health & wellness (less waste makes for more enjoyable walks too). Thanks Nutro! March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy Dogs In my house, our animals are a part of our family and if they are happy it makes me happy. I love the fact that I never have to coax my dogs to eat, they love the small bites lamb and rice. We have 2 dogs and both are very happy with Nutro and it makes for great days and nights when I don't have to worry about upset tummys, because we never have this problem with Nutro. Thank you for making a great product. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by I highly recommend this food. I was so glad to find this dog food. My dogs love it and eat a lot less because they are getting what they need with each serving. They have a lot less waste due to the lack of by products in this food. I spend less on food for the dogs because it goes much further. Love it. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Healthy & Affordable Our family and friends say we have the healthiest and most well groomed dogs and I owe it all to Nutro. Since we got them we have only given them Nutro Lamb and Rice Small Bites. They are excited each time we get a new bag and love the food each day when we serve it to them. We have two shelties who have a beautiful coat and are a very healthy and fit weight. We recommend this to every pet owner we know! March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dog loves it! My schnoodle loves her small bites. She has a sensitive stomach that can't handle various brands, but this one always agrees with her and has never disagreed with her. She is lively, has a great coat and skin, and I think it's due to the food. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by great food! We have three dogs, and feed this to all of them. They have maintained a healthy weight, and love feeding time! We have used this food for the past 5 years, and plan to continue with it. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great size for little guys! Our little ShihTzu ,Merlot, loves the small bites- we love the formula which seems to be so good for his tummy! At 4:30 every afternoon, after his walk, he bounds into the house looking forward to his dish of Small Bites with a little warm beef broth on it! (Occasionally of course we share a little steak or other meat we are having)! March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Breeder Recommended In 2001 our two schnauzers puppies started eating Natural Choice Puppy food and then graduated to Small Bites Lamb Meal & Rice Formula Dog Food. The breeders highly recommended Nutro. After almost ten years our boys still remind us when it is time to eat and wait anxiously for their bowls of dry food. They have never tired of the food and always leave clean bowls. Amazing! People that we meet on our walks are always surprised when they learn that Speicher and Schatzie will be 10 years old in June. Their weight is ideal and they are full of vim and vigor - always ready to take a walk or play. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Dog Loves this food !! Hoppy will ONLY eat Natural Choice dog food. He has been eating it for 5 years now. One time I ran out and couldn't get to a store right away, so my neighbor loaned me a small bag of another major brand. Hoppy wouldn't touch it.....Hoppy is a German Shepard and is a very healthy 6 year old. Different times I have tried to feed him another brand, even mixed with some left overs from dinner mixed in. He eats the leftovers, but leaves the dog food. I can't fool Hoppy. He is a very smart dog and knows what makes him feel best. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dogs love the food We feed our poodle and min pin the small bread lamb and rice. They get wet food on it every other day. The days they don't get wet food, they still gobble it up. They have maintained a suitable weight for middle age small dogs. They get a maintenance biscuit every monring for breakfast. The min pin does a biscuit dance to get her biscuit.I recommend their products to everyone. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by The only diet Sophie has ever been on! Our Sophie just turned 7 years old last week and she has the looks, energy, stamina, and enthusiasm she had when we first brought her home as a puppy. She's the right weight, her coat is shiny and sleek, and her constitution stays very constant. She's a "free eater" so she takes a few kernels and enjoys them at her leisure during the day. I have referred two other owners who have converted their pets to the exact same formula and all of the pets are doing well.Thanks Nutro for keeping our Sophie happy and healthy. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by no by-products make it good for Riley I started using Nutro foods because it doesn't have corn meal or chicken by-products. Once I found out what those things were years ago, I started reading dog food labels and at that time Nutro was the only one that didnt have them. A lot of new foods these days don't either, but hey, why fix something that isn't broke. Riley loves his food and I know he's eating healthy. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Small Bites For Small Dogs Our two small Peklngese just love the lamb and rice Nutro dog food. They always finish their dishes and the BM's they produce are much mor compact verses other BM's with the Store Brand small bite Dry Dog Foods. We add a little wet food or chicken and they lick their plates clean. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by they will eat no others I have 2 dogs and a cat, they all eat the Natural food .Its the only food I buy for them. With the quality and taste they love . My Shelttie MOLLY is going on 12 and she looks like a young pup, Q-bee is a havaneese with so much energy, going on 3 and Lilly the cat is going on 7. you wouldnt know that at all. Thanks to Natural pet food they are healthy and strong. Natural its the only way to go. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by small bites lamb and rice My dogs love this food. I have tried many dog foods that my dogs didn't seem to really like,. once changing to nutro natural choice, my three large dogs come running once they hear the food container open when Im getting ready to feed them. And they dont leave their bowls until all the food is gone, and if one dog does...the others will finish the food that was left. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog's ask for it by name! Okay, they don't talk but they bang there dishes! Until you give them a scoop of their favored dog food! Now tell me thats not love for their food!! March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Heidi loves it !!!!!! My dog Heidi just turned 10, she has been a Nutro dog for almost all 10 of those years. She is a lab / husky mix of about 45 lbs and always liked the smaller sized food, fortunately, Nutro has that. I would often be out and people would say what a nice looking dog and beautiful coat, I thank Nutro for that. She has never had eating or bowel problems, I think from the size chunk and qualtiy ingredients. I just bought my first bag of Nutro senior and she'll be on that for as long as she is still in our family. Thank you Nutro for such a great product. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by easly digestible Very pleased with the canned food as well as dry small bites. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very satisfied with the quality of this pet food. My two dogs, Comet (Schnoodle, age 7 1/2) and Bailey (Lhasa, age 5 1/2) have been eating this food since they joined the family when they were puppies (starting with the puppy food first). The dogs both enjoy their meals. They are very healthy and active dogs, which I credit in large to Natural Choice. I would definitely recommend this pet food. I'm glad the pet store we purchased the animals from recommended Natural Choice. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Food for Small Breeds I have 4 small breed dogs; 3 pekingese and 1 chihuahua and because they are all less than 14 pounds they often have difficulty eating food that is made for all size dogs. Small Bites is perfect for them and they have no problems eating it at all. Even my older dogs, ages 16, 14 and 12 have no problem and love their food. And believe me my pekingese can be picky eaters. Also they all have beautiful shiny coats and healthy skin which I attribute to all the great things that are a part of the Small Bites Food. Thanks so much we love your products and appreciate the care that goes into making food that is so healthy for our pets. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by We only buy this! My 2 dogs (9 lb. maltese, Maddie & her little brother, 60 lb. bulldog, Amos) only eat this food! They have only had Nutro their whole lives (7 and 6 yrs) and we have never had any problems with it. We started them on Nutro Puppy and switched to this product when they were both adults. They get so excited at dinnertime that Nutro must be doing something right. March 8, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great benefits!! We have a 2 year old beagle mix, Zanzibar, who has tried other dog food products and they all fail in comparison to Nutro's small bite products. Zanzibar would ignore his food and many times not eat at all, until we switched him to Nutro, where he drools waiting for meal time! We also see benefits from the dog food like, his coat is shinier. March 3, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dogs love this food! I have an 11 year old Collie and 2 year old Sheltie. This food works great for both! I used another brand of food because they wouldn't eat and their black coats were dull so I decided to give Nutro a try. I noticed a positive difference in their coats and best of all they love to eat again! The small bites are great for my older dog and for my smaller dog. Thank you. March 2, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for small dogs I have three ShihTzu's in three different sizes and they all love and eat this food -- it is perfect for even my mini! I also had a small mixed breed that was part poodle. I acquired her when she was six and she lived to be 22 years old -- she ate Neutro for most of the 16 years she was in our family and never needed any regular medications. Not sure what role Neutro played in her longevity, but it is what I will always feed to my dogs. March 2, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect. Simply perfect. We rescued our beagle two years ago; When we got her she was in poor condition. She was emaciated, infested with fleas and had sarcoptic mange. She had sores and bald patches all over from scratching and the flies had bitten chunks from her ears. We started feeding her Nutro Small Bites Lamb and Rice. Within weeks, she was a completely different dog. Now she has healthy skin, has built lean muscle and reached an appropriate weight. I am convinced that this food played a pivotal role in her speedy recovery. February 28, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product We tried numerous dry dog foods for our small dog but he always had digestive problems. Since he started eating Nutro small bites lamb and rice he's been doing so well. Wouldn't change a thing about it! Rocky just loves it February 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by my fosters love it!!!! I have been fostering 2 blind cocker puppy mill rescues for over 6 months. The natural choice has helped resolve some unfortunate digestive issues. By giving them good wholesome food I can concentrate more on their anxiety/trust issues. It's a great product and I highly recommend it!!! February 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dogs Love it! These are known as "Bitty Bites!" at our home. We have 4 dogs, three are over 75 lbs! They all love "Bitty Bites!' When we yell out "Who Wants Bitty Bites?...they all come stampeding down the hall! They LOVE them! I think they like the feel of the smaller peices in their mouths! Love the taste. February 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Saved a rescues life long problem I have only used Nutro lamb and rice small bites for my own dogs, one had some food sensitivity. I was fostering a dog thru rescue, who was surrendered by his owner for severe skin issues, they were not willing to work with, the breeder refused to take him back. I immediately switched him to Nutro Lamb and Rice, within weeks the scales and itching disappeared, and beautiful red fur began glistening as he ran thru the yard. Now this eight year old cairn terrier looks and acts like a youngster again, he has so much fur that this winter he looks like a chow! Another foster came with fowl smells and awful bowel issues, now on Nutro - it has all cleared up. I have recommended Nutro to anyone who asks, and love it when I hear friends making the recommendations too! Thank You! PS both fosters are now residents in the home! February 26, 2011
