Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutley Amazing!! My doberman had skin allergies and when i put her on this product, she has not had one reoccurance!! And absolutley loves her food, I am thrilled with this product and am soo glad my girl doesn't have to be in pain with hot spots etc. anymore and I don't have vet bills that went along with this:) Thanks NUTRO!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sally's Favorite After adopting Sally, I realized she was shedding a lot for a young dog and stool was too often and too soft. After talking to a pet nutrition specialist at Petsmart I made the switch to Venison NC and haven't turned back. They were actually able to make sense and show me how this food would help. I get compliments "what a pretty dog" wherever we go now- and she really is! Such a shiny coat, minimal shedding now, which is better for my allergies and keeping a clean house. She now goes to the bathroom regularly only once per day and it's easy clean up. Thanks Nutro for making things easier for me and for Sally's health and beauty! February 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great improvement in health We switched to Nutro venison meal for our two small adult dogs about 18 months ago. Both suffered allergies including itchy dry skin and stomach upsets. Since switching, we've noticed a significant improvement with virtually no stomach problems and their skin is not dry and their coats are beautiful. We've had dogs for years and have never had better success than with this venison meal and whole brown rice food. Many thanks and we recommend to anyone with similar problems. February 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dogs love this We settled on Venison Meal after a long search to find a food that our rescue German Shepherd (4 years old) could tolerate. Every food until this one gave her diarrhea. To our delight, our 2 other dogs (a Portuguee Water dog and a large hound mix) love the food so much that we no longer have to monitor feeding times for the 3 dogs: everyone eats their food so fast that there is none left for the other dogs to investigate. Feeding time has never gone so quickly! ...and our Shepherd's diarrhea problems are a thing of the past. February 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This Nutro Variety is a must for Sensitive Bellies This product is a must if your dog has a senstive belly February 21, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Made my Fur Kid Healthy!!! Carter is our Fur Baby. He is an American Bull Dog weighing 108 lbs. He is our whole world. Ever since he was a puppy he has some medical issues. We have spent thousands of dollars on his medical bills. One of them was being born w/o an ACL. He had to have surgery on his back leg, and had one made for him. He is our bionic puppy. So with all of his skin issues, ear infections, and breaking out between his paws it was just to much. We had to do something more. We tried many other dog foods, and nothing seemed to help. We stumbled upon Venison Meal and whole Brown rice. IT WORKED!! All of his skin allergies went away. No more sores or ear infections. It was a miracle. It helps in the long as well by saving money on vet bills. He has been through a lot to be only five, and we thank Nutro every meal for improving our fur kids way of life. February 21, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this product! I have two adopted greyhounds, Freedom and Alice. Natural Choice was recommended to us from an experienced greyhound foster parent (Freedom's foster dad). We have been using it ever since and with our recent adoption of our second Grey we are converting her over to it also. They love it! February 21, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product was great for my dog When I first got my puppy, he has a very sensitive stomach. Regular puppy food made his stomach very upset, and a friend recommended I look into the Nutro brands , since they had used a different type of food within the Nutro brands for their dog. Waht a saving grace this was for me. Caine loves the food and has never had a stomach issue since. On top of that his White Husky coat looks very healthy. Nutro has a great reputation at every pet store I go to, and there always seems to be coupons for a few bucks off. The price is very good already but this opportunity is a bonus! I even joined the Nutro Rewards program and was sent a great 10 dollar off coupon in the next 10 days...Overall my experience with the Nutro brands have been great, and I will continue to be a patron and recommend their brand to all my friends February 21, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Positive Results are obvious!! Our dog Hunter used to shed in chunks endlessly even after several brushings. Ever since the change to Nutro Natural Choice he has literally stopped shedding in chunks and we don't even notice his hair until we vaccum. We decided to change because I was looking for a food that would help BOTH his sensitive stomach and skin. Before Nutro we used Science Diet Sensitive Stomach for 7 years. Nutro is definately a tremedous upgrade and affordable compared to other natural food products. Hunter's skin and hair looks shinier and healthier :). He itches less and has no stomach problems either. We also noticed that the pieces of Nutro food that ended up in his water dish now & then did not blow up like his other food did. We are so happy we decided to make the switch and feel better about what our dog is eating. He has been on Nutro for about 6 months now and the positive results were noticed within the first month!!! February 21, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for dog's skin I have tried forever to find a great food for my shar pei puppy and the venison meal and brown rice formula is AWESOME! She has stopped scratching and biting and her hair is so soft and shiny. Thanks Nutro for a great product!! February 21, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent for tummies and skin I have a older puppy that was on the sensitive systems puppy food. When we got a second, adult dog that seemed to have sensitive skin, I wanted a food I could feed them both. I have been so happy with the results for both dogs. The puppy hasn't had any tummy trouble and my other dog's flaky skin has cleared up. This has been a great choice for them both! I only wish it came in a larger bag as the 30lb size never goes on sale at the pet store like the 35lb bags do. February 21, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by great for sensitive skin my dogs love this product and with dogs who have sensitive skin its great that theres not alot of additives and fillers a product worth the price February 20, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jacob I adopted Jacob from a humane society after he walked into a store I was working for. I looked at him and told myself "That's my dog." I took him home 3 days later. I was told his mix breed is border collie and husky and that he was about one year old. He weighed 40 pounds when I took him to the vet. At a year old, or what I was told, I thought maybe he'd be about 60 pounds a full growth. Well, he grew very rapidly on the food I was feeding him and realized I could hear his hips crack. After a few months, I estimated his age to be about 8 months when I adopted him and it didn't take long to realize he kept on growing. He now weighs 88 pounds and is about 3 years old. Shortly after i adopted him, because of his hips and joints, I knew I had to give him better nutrition. Being a border collie mix, he has TONS of energy so is always running around, so I decided to try the Nutro Natural Choice Venison food. It has tons of glucosamine and condroitin to meet his needs to keep his bones healthy, and his skin and coat have even looked more bright and heathly. He loves it and I love how he looks. I have not heard any cracks in his joints since I started using this food. I recommend it to anyone who has a large breed dog or a dog that has a food sensitivity as it is a limited ingredient formula. thanks Nutro for making my dog happy! February 20, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for allergies I switched to this product at the suggestion of a co-worker who had animals with similar allergy issues. Product was very well received by both my airedales with no transitional stomach upset. Also seems to have reduced continued scratching and trips to the vet for cortizone shots due to allergies. February 20, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by The food give your Dog a shiny coat When we got our dog from a breeder, they were feeding him IAMS. We kept him on it until he turned 1 year old, because he is our first dog and we didn't know any better. We switched him to Natural Choice and picked the Venison because it has double the condrotine/glutoclosomine. Within 2 weeks, his coat was just beautiful. We just love Natural Choice and having a dog! Thanks Natural Choice. February 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This food restored my dog's health. I adopted my Lab/Feist mix from the local Humane Society one year ago TODAY! She was around 18 mo, and had spent the last 6 months in three shelters awaiting adoption. Among her many issues was such terrible chronic diarrhea (with blood streaks) that they weren’t sure she was housebroken. The shelter could only offer Amber a blend of donated food, and it clearly wasn’t working for her. I cycled through four other brands of recommended high quality food over the next 6 months (unsuccessfully) before my local Petsmart recommend the Nutro Natural Choice Sensitive Stomach line. She’d had trouble with chicken before, so I chose the venison. Even with only 25% Nutro, Amber’s stools immediately began to have a more firm consistency. By the time she had been completely on Nutro two weeks, she had nicely formed solid stools. He skin also stopped flaking and her coat has a sheen you don’t usually see on yellow dogs. Amber is finally putting on a little weight and is full of energy and spunk. I attribute her good health to the Nutro Natural Choice Venison & Brown Rice. It’s also helpful that she loves the taste, so I don’t have to think about switching brands again. Thank you for offering a sensitive stomach line – it’s been a real life saver for Amber!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Changed our dogs lives Two years ago we rescued two Wheaten Terriers with numerous "hot spots" on both dogs. Our vet recommended to feed them only venison or duck products since the vet doubted those products had been fed to them and their food allergies had not previously been diagnosed. She recommended the Nutro products and we will be forever grateful. We chose your venison and brown rice formula and the results were and remain wonderful. Within a couple of weeks the "hot spots" disappeared and their coat began to shine. We have never varied from the vet's recommendation and our Wheatens "Mulligan and Sawyer" are healthy, content, fun loving dogs. We have recommended Nutro to our friends. February 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Beautiful Coat Growing up with labs, I understand the need for a shiny coat. My current lab's skin seems so incredibely sensitive and dries out so easily. After trying several other foods, Nutro's Venison Meal is the finally the answer! His coat shines more than I could have ever imagined! We constantly are getting comments on his "beautiful coat1" February 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy on the stomach I have a doberman who has an incredibly sensitive stomach and easily develops dry skin. After looking at a variety of natural dry dog foods, finally finding Nutro's Venison Meal was exactly what I have been looking for! My doberman's coat has never been more shiny and she can tolerate this food with no associated GI upset. What a great development by Nutro! WIll continue to recommend to my friends and family! February 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for Shar Pei This has been the best choice for my 2 Shar peis Zeus And Apollo. Their skin coat are smooth and shiney. February 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great ingredients! I LOVE the Nutro Natural Choice brand for my dogs. I have a lab who was diagnosed with severe hip displasia at 7 mos. After three surgeries including a full hip replacement, I feel that the nutro has kept him healthy and strong. I look for the high amounts of glucosomine in my dog foods because of bone issues. Clancy had three surgeries before he was two to mend his deformed hips and just turned eight years this month. I also believe that he has the most beautiful, soft, black coat because of the food he eats! I would highly recommend this dog food AND DO! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is great for sensetive systems & skin I have 3 labs from 3-13 yrs old and this food is great for all of them. My oldest was throwing up her food and since feeding her this food the throwing up has stopped! They have beautiful shiny coats and it is helping keep their weights in check due to the fact venison is a lean meat. I work at a TSC where we sell Nutro and I have converted many customers who have dogs with sensetive systems and skin. Since recommending this food our sales have greatly increased. I have built trusting relationships with my customers and would never recommend a product I did not believe in. I believe in Nutro and their products. I have been buying 2 30# bags per month for the past 2 years and would love the opportunity to receive free food for a year. In the current economy $100 a month for food not to mention the Nutro Tarter and Lamb and Rice for large breed treats I purchase a break would be nice. You make great products and please keep up the good work! Lab Mom February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by A life saver! A healthy food that my dog can digest and LOVES to eat. February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rascal Tested Rascal Approved -Yummy We have a English Springer Spaniel who is 5 yrs old and has a few food allergies. By feeding him the Venison Meal & Whole Brown Rice Adult food he and our vet are very happy. No allergy issues - dry skin, red eyes and he loves the taste. I feel that the quality is good and the nutritional value is equal to others that we have tried. I appreciate the value of a good product that is good for the 4 legged family members. Thanks and keep making great food for our dog family members.. February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by No More Vomitting I used to feed my dog, Lily, Iams. Unfortunately, Lily seems to have a sensitive stomach. She would vomit quite frequently, around two or three times a month, sometimes more. After taking her to the veterinarian and having a few tests run, they couldn't find the cause of her ailment. I decided to switch her food to a sensitive stomach formula, but there are not many companies that offer this option. I was hesitant to try Nutro because it is a little pricey, but I am so happy with my decision to purchase this product.Most importantly, her vomiting has completely stopped. She also has a shinier coat which she gets compliments on all of the time. We often hear, "She is the blackest black dog I have ever seen". Lily also has dry skin, and since we started using Nutro, she doesn't have as much dandruff as she did when I fed her Iams. I highly recommend Nutro, especially the sensitive stomach formula, to anyone with a dog. The extra cost of this food is well worth it, especially if you love your dog as much as I love mine!!!!! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best food for coat issues My Sheltie had skin problems...flaking and iching. My groomer suggested to purchase dog food without corn or wheat. I purchased venison meal and brown rice and my dogs coat changed after three months of eating it.He is only on this type of food and loves it.If your dog has skin issues try this dog food. It's wonderful and you will see a change in the dogs coat. February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sprinkles is now a healthy dog! I have been feeding Nutro to my dog all her life. She is now a 6 and a half year old great dane and loving a full life. She bounds up and down stairs, loves to run and play. Most Great Danes are usually not so full of life at this stage. I think by feeding her The natural Choice, venison meal and whole brown rice adult dog food has allowed her to be like a puppy! Not only has she stopped itching when i switched her from another Nutro brand dog food, but she is very regular and loves to eat! I have even put her food out and fed a friends dog his food, they both went for her bowl! Thank you so much Nutro for my best friends health and energy! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Skin and Sensitive Stomach Both of my dogs are part Shi-Tzu and, therefore have itchy skin. My oldest dog also has an extremely sensitive stomach. I was looking for a dog food that addressed both of these issues without having to put them on separate foods. It's hard enough getting them to eat out of their own bowl of food since one thinks the other is getting something better, even though it's the same food! The Venison Meal and Brown Rice formula of Nutro is extremely appetizing to them as well as beneficial to them. They scratch much less now and my oldest dog very rarely has an upset stomach. I'm extremely happy with this product, have already recommended it to my boyfriend for his dog (which he now feeds the same food), and will continue to recommend it! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for sensitive tummy I have 2 chihuahuas with sensitive stomachs. I started feeding them this brand exclusively for 4 years and they are doing great. No more upset tummys! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 happy American Bulldog We have a 3 year old American Bulldog, Garrison. At a early age we discovered he had a food allergy to wheat gluten. We where using the food the vet had recommended for the first 6 months or so at about $85 per bag. I started comparing the ingredients of this food to others on the market. Natural Choice Venison and brown rice was an almost perfect match at almost half the price. For the past 2+ years we have had Garrison on this food. He loves it and every person who sees this dog complements his over all look of health. February 18, 2011
