Rated 5 out of 5 by Glucosamine & Chondroitin Our 11 yr old 120lb Dakota has arthritis in his joints, especially his hips and we bought this food for its glucosamine and chondroitin. He likes the taste and we know we're providing a food that will help him out. February 17, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Female dog issues My dogs love this food, the only problem is that the female gets spontaneous urination after eating it. I read a Vet's review online that said high amounts of gluchosomine will do that to females who were neutered at an early age.We give her the brown bag which is lower and she seems fine with it. So I think its the higher levels. Our male dog is in great health and he loves the food too.Just thought you should know. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by still here My Golden Retriever, Annie has been eating Nutro since she was six weeks old. Starting with Puppy, then large breed weight management, for a brief period on Lite, and the last few years on Large Breed Senior. She will be 15 in May and other than some hip problems is in great health for her age and size ( 87lbs) I would recommend this food to all dog owners as providing a well balanced diet with all the required nutrition for maximum well being.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Saved my Babies Life My baby has hip dysplasia and at age 11 she was having problems getting up and down. She was in pain and without medicating her daily, she was pretty much sedentary. I wasnt too fond of the idea of daily meds due to the effects it would have on her Liver and Kidneys. By chance, there was an associate at Petsmart that directed me to Nutro Brand dog food and pointed out the amount of natural glucosamine the food contained. All the other ingredients and nutritional amounts seemed to be the perfect fit of what I was looking for. After 4 weeks of feeding her this food, it was like a completely different dog. She is now 14 and 1/2 years old and eats nothing other than her Nutro brand dog food. I am a firm believer in this food and recommend it to any and everyone!! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's the BEST My 12 year old black Lab dances for his two cups twice a day. He wakes me up on Saturday and Sundays if I haven't feed him at the time he is use to. I have been feeding this for two to three years and have noticed a difference in my Lab's appearance, health etc. He acts like a 3-4 year old Lab. I would recommend this food.Doug in Colorado February 17, 2011
