Rated 5 out of 5 by 73reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Dog Food My Shepherd/Husky mix has been on Nutro for 13 years and I am convinced that he is a healthy dog because of this food. Thank you Nutro! May 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Impressed - Will never change again. Shyla is a 7 year old Black Lab / Collie mix that has been eating a different brand's Chicken and Rice natural version which was recently discontinued. Since it was time to move to a senior food, we decided to move her to Nutro's Natural Choice Senior, especially since it was also Chicken and Rice based. My first observation was the lack of any kind of filler. Shyla absolutely loves the food and eats it very quickly.I am excited for an unexpected benefit. Her stools are well formed and solid. This was something we never had on the old food, suddenly picking up after her is no big deal. THANK YOU Nutro. April 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mom two Saints I was hearbroken to find out from my vet last week that my beloved Holly, is now considered a senior. She had been eating Lamb and Rice for Large Breed. for 5 years. I went to two local stores searching for the L&R Senior, I couldn't find it at either store.The store rep suggested I try the chicken version. I bought , brought it home and Holly LOVES the chicken flavor!! Whew, what a relief. Why don't the large breed bags come bigger than 30 pounds? October 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by German Shepherd Approved!!! Kianne is 10 1/2 and has become picky about the food she likes. I've been giving her Nutro for the past 5 or 6 years. Occasionally I will get a free bag of Eukanuba, Blue or Science Diet from a friend or shelter. When I put it in her dish, she'll look at it and then up at me... reluctantly she'll eat it.When I open up a fresh bag of Natural Choice, she'll hurry over and bury her head in the bag to taste test it! May 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product! I have two Standard Poodles and they both have IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). They are 9 and 12 years old - after switching to the Senior Large Breed food, they have been doing great. I doubt that I will ever take them off this food.Both my dogs are rescues. Please be responsible pet owners!!! March 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dog Parent Always give high-quality food to my dog, especially important since he is a service dog, and am especially pleased with this food his coat looks great and his hunger seems satisfied when I feed him-by this I mean that it seems like he is getting complete nutrition January 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by we always come back to Nutro We were feeding our black Lab and our German Shorthaired Pointer Nutro large breed, but we switched to the food our vet uses at the boarding kennel for a while. Our Lab started gaining too much weight and our GSP started losing! This is the opposite of what we wanted. I switched them both to Nutro Large Breed Senior food and things are so much better. Our GSP started eating much better. I think the other food was too hard for him to chew. Our Lab is more active and has stopped gaining weight. Thanks Nutro! I truly believe you make the best dog food on the market. June 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Both my dogs love it. I have been using Nutro since 1995. I started my first Golden on it when he was a pup, (puppy, adult and then senior food). My second Golden in now 9 1/2 and eating the senior. He loves it. He is very active, swims in the early morning , most days 3/4 hr, and then we hike , play ball, plus all the good things. He loves the food, and waits by his dish every feeding. I feed him twice a day, as he is so the active. June 28, 2012
