Rated 5 out of 5 by Works for us! I have 2 dogs..a shepherd mix with a cast-iron stomach and a Great Dane with digestive "difficulties". You do not want a Dane with "difficulties"! I have tried numerous foods and the Venison/Brown Rice formula is the first one I have found that allows both girls to be "normal" Thanks!! May 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for sensitive stomachs My dog had a very sensitive stomach when I got him. My vet advised that I switch to Nutro. Within a few days, he never needed to run to the bathroom and never threw up again. It was the best decision I ever made. May 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product My 3 year lab had been suffering for skin irritations. She was constantly chewing on her paws, scratching her ears and losing a lot of hair on her underside. Since being on this food all of her skin irritations and itching has stopped and her coat is thickening up. Thanks for making my dog happy again. April 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Skin and Coat results My lab Mix was showing signs of itchy skin and what seemed to be hot spots including raised bumps which seemed to be hive like ... A family member suggested we try changing his food to an all natural blend . So we purchased a small bag of Nutro Venison meal & whole brown rice adult food. Amazing results within 3 days .... His coat seemed to have more of an oil to it, and the little bumps and sore spots were all but gone. ... I would recommend this product in a heart beat ! ;o) April 1, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dogs love it! Both my dogs, one a Bernese/border collie mix, the other a wire hair dachshund/terrier mix, were extremely gassy and would start to itch and scratch uncontrollably on other food. We tried this one, and they are happy, healthy, not stinking up the house and best of all, they love the food! Very, very happy. March 30, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent Ajax came into our lives from a shelter in New York City as a companion to my 26 year old daughter , Katherine, who was dying of cancer. He holds special meaning for us. He is an energetic, loving min pin with a very sensitive stomach. This poor little 12 pounder would eat, then spit up. Fortunately, our vet recommended the venison natural choice. Voila, we have a healthy 5 year old with no digestive problems who enjoys his food and is thriving on it. Thank you, Nutro for this superior product ! March 20, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Stuff Our Aussie Shepard/Border Collie suddenly developed sever itchyness. The vet suggested changing his food as nothing else was working. This product was the second one we tried - and 6 months later, we're itch free.The bonus is he is much more engergetic now (he's 12 years old), and acts more like a 5 year old again.Love this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hank Tested, Owner Approved! We were having a heck of a time getting our dog Hank's digestive system and coat under control. After trying four or five different brands, we had had it! We walked into a local pet food store and there was a Nutro Sales Rep. She was amazing, and I wish I would've gotten her name! We told her what issues we were having with our Bloodhound, Hank, and she took us straight to the Nutro Natural Choice Venison and Whole Brown Rice food. Hank has been a "happy camper" ever since! Thank you Nutro for providing such wonderful food for our Hank! March 15, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sent From Heaven I have 3 greyhounds whom I love very much. Greys are notorious for having bad gas and mine were no different. I was reading posts on the greytalk website and several people wrote the venison was great for their digestion. I started using Nutro Natural Choice Venison and Whole Brown Rice Formula about a year ago and I could'nt be happier. My dogs rarely have gas now and my household has been a much more pleasant place to live. I am also part of a greyhound rescue group and I advise all new adopters to try this food and have had nothing but positive feedback. Thanks, Nutro for making a great product. March 14, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solved our Weimeraner's skin problem We had been feeding our Weim a popular high-end dry dog food since we had gotten her as a pup--puppy food then large breed adult. At the age of three she started having skin problems. I read an article regarding corn in dog food. At that point, we looked at labels and Nutro was the only one with no corn. Her skin cleared up within a few days! Friends told us about another brand with no corn, so we tried that. Our dog, Jozi, could not digest it. Our friends got a bag of $56 dog food. We went back to Nutro and Jozi has been great. She never gets tired of her food. Thanks, Nuto! March 13, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Food! My dog Freida is a Boxer mix & I tried many different foods before Finally sticking with Nutro Venison her stomach has never been better & she has never been happier & neither have I !!! March 13, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our dog loves it! We got our dog back in Oct. 2010 from a rescue and she was underweight and her coat was a bit rough. After being on the Venison since we got her, she's put on good weight and her coat is amazing...very healthy! Highly recommend the Venison! March 13, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Howling for Nutro The other day we went to PetCo looking for glucosamine for Foxy, a wonderful Siberian Husky mix that wandered into our lives and choose to live with us. There we found a very friendly Nutro Guy that showed us glucosamine and other health supplements in the vitamin section of the store, and then said, “but if you really love your dog and want to give her the best food in the market that includes joint health, let me show you what we have in the Nutro Large Adult dry and canned food.” We noticed that he had a “Nutro” patch on his shirt, and were suspicious, but we decided to give it a try.We bought Nutro Natural Choice Venison Meal & Whole Brown Rice Formula Adult Dry Dog Food. From the first day, Foxy loved the new food (somehow dogs know what quality food should taste like) and every day she starts howling at 4:00 PM asking for her food.We live out in the country and to make sure we have plenty of food, we buy it online and keep 2 weeks worth for emergencies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by My dogs tummy is happy with this food! I have 4 dogs but Tank, my rescue pit bull, had the most trouble finding a food that would give him a solid bowel movement. I tried every type of dry dog food out there cheap and exspensive-it would give him loose stool. Some foods gave him so much gas -he would clear the room! I spoke to a representitive from the company one day at local pet store and she explained the product to me. She told me to try it and if I was not happy to return it for a refund. Tank and the whole family is happy. We can all sit in the same room and watch a movie together and his tummy seems happy too!I even switched my other 3 dogs to Nutro brand foods. March 12, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by We love this Dog food! We have 3 dogs and one is very sensistive to a lot of foods. It tooks us 3 years to find a dog food he could eat with out having any problems. All three of our dogs are more energetic and just all around healthier. March 12, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Don't think about it, just buy this dog food ! We adopted a full bred German Shepherd from our local animal shelter a little over a year ago and when we brought him home nothing we fed him would agree with his very sensitive digestive system and that is if would could get him to eat at all. While shopping for dog food at our local pet reatailer a couple of months after adoption, a sales associate suggested we try Natural Choice Venison Meal & Whole Brown Rice Adult Dog Food. Well, being skeptical because no other food had worked so far we decided to give it a try and let me tell you we've never looked at another dog food again ! Not only did this food settle his unstable stomach down but HE LOVES IT. He was a little underweight when we brought him home, now he is in perfect condition and couldn't be happier or healthier. His coat has a beautiful shine now and he is a firm and muscular 100 lbs. If your dog has a sensitive digestive system or is a picky eater, don't give it a second thought just buy this food and give it a try. You will NOT be sorry that you did. March 12, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by It is without a doubt the best dog food available. My introduction to Nutro Natural Choice goes back to about 1997 when I was managing a pet store. We sold all the major premium brands and I needed to know the facts on each one; so, I got to the nuts and bolts on each one. It became obvious that Natural Choice was far above the rest and it was the Natural Choice that I used and recommended. We have four dogs and presently use the Natural Choice Adult, Lite, Venison and Large Breed Puppy. Natural Choice is our choice because it is our dogs choice. They are healthy and look great and that says it all. March 12, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! I've been feeding my dog Nutro Max Dry food since he was a puppy. He's now 7 years old and still thriving on it and loves the variety of flavors, though the venison seems to be his favorite. He gobbles that one down in minutes. He's been very healthy all his life and has a great shiny coat so I thank Nutro for be a healthy and enjoyable food choice for our "baby" boy! March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I have been feeding Nutro Natural Choice dry dog food to my lab for most of his 11 years and rotate between the venison and herring meal. He doesn't get anything other than dog food and dog treats to eat and never misses his meals of this product. He seems very happy with it. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best yet Shugababy, my gentle 4yr old Bull Mastiff is cursed with a very sensitive stomach. I tried everything on the market, but he continued to frequently toss his meals about 15 mins after feeding. I tried your Venison&Brwn rice, problem solved...he hold his food always. It is no fun cleaning up huge piles of dog vomitus several times a day. Your food is a lifesaver. Not to mention the fact that he loves the taste. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just Perfect! I have two goldendoodles, which started out on a different brand of food aimed at many natural ingredients. Upon changing from puppy to adult food, I stayed with the same company because they did well on the previous version. They were unable to tolerate the food. We were very fortunate to run into a Nutro Rep at PetCo and she assessed our situation and recommended this particular product from Nutro. We tried it and it is just perfect. My two fluffy bundles of joy just LOVE it every meal and thier digestive system, coat, eyes, energy level, are wonderful. I am so happy to have bumped into the Nutro Rep and will not change from this company and product any time soon! THANK YOU. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Food Sensitivity Free! Our Cody is an English Labrador Retriever. We have been using Nutro since bringing him home from the breeder. He started with Nutro Lamb and Rice as a puppy. Cody developed food sensitivities at around 2 years old. I was concerned and disappointed we would have to switch brands. Nutro provided the nutrition Cody needed to grow into a beautiful handsome adult . I then learned about Nutro Venison and Whole Brown RIce. Since switching Cody's skin sensitivities are no more. We receive compliments on Cody's beautiful coat and healthy looking bone stature anytime we are out. I wouldn't consider using any other brand of dog food. Thank you, Nutro. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by best food that helps all my dgs I have three dogs, all with there own issues. One has ear problems, one has a sensative tummy with vomiting issues, and the other would get very picky and would just walk away from her food. After trying different brands trying to solve all their issues, I was told about the venison & brown rice. I have used this food for almost three years now and it has helped with all the problems. There stools are solid, ears are good, and no cleaning vomit off the rugs and floor. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by #1 dog food out there. My dog Priscilla is HIGHLY allergic to corn (and fish). This is the ONLY dog food out there that doesn't give her an allergic reaction and I've tried them all (when there was a shortage on this brand). They claim to have no corn fillers in them but still break her out. I would most likely have to cook my dogs food if I didn't find this dog food. Thank you Nutro for being the only dog food company out there that can tend to my dogs personal needs. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our dogs favorite food Our dogs favorite and best tolerated food for his sensitive stomach. We had tried several others and were only willing to try the highest quality dog foods available when we were offered a sample of natural choice at a humane society fund raiser. Our dog loved it and just as importantly his stomach "loved" it as well! March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Only food my dog can eat! We have a 12 year old collie that has a very sensitive stomach and is prone to loose stools. The only food he is able to eat and maintain normal digestion is the Nutro Venison and Brown Rice Formula. We have tried him on other brands of Venison dog food and he does not tolerate it. This has been a lifesaver for us and for him. Buddy is in the final years of his life and we wouldn't think of changing to anything else. He is healthy and active and happy. What else could we ask for. Thank you for helping us keep our dog this way all these years. It isn't the cheapest, but it is the best choice for our guy. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Ingredients I'm a huge fan of no by-product in the formula. Venison isn't something you find many foods, and that's why I chose this formula. Healthy Coat and Health Skin as advertised. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best food ever I wanted to let you know your food has been a heaven scent for my two yellow labs one has a sensitive stomach the other just loves to eat. When they hear the dog food tub open they are sitting waiting for us to feed them this food. When they get done eating it they lick each others dishes clean and are always so excited to eat it. We tried the chicken flavor as well but they didn't react as well to it. When we say foodies they are so excited they bounce around. We love this food so much we have recommended it to many other people who have dogs who are very picky. I would recommend this food to lots of people. March 10, 2011
