Rated 5 out of 5 by my dog is bigger and healthier I started to use Nutro because I have allergies to wheat and didn't want my pup to eat and then be worried about him licking me and having a reaction. I'm very happy with his health and vitality. He is large and strong, but very fit. Thanks...great product! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Saved our new puppy When we got our puppy, her previous owners had her on a leading store brand of food so we stuck to it while we were getting her potty trained and used to our new schedule. About six months later, she began getting sick and vomiting among other issues. When we took her to the vet, they said that it looked like she had developed an allergy to the low quality fillers that were in the food. We switched to Nutro Natural Choice Venison & Brown Rice food and she did not have any further problems. She quickly gained weight and showed zero signs of any allergy. We also noticed an improvement in her coat. Thank you very much for making such high quality, healthy dog food.Sincerely,J. ArnoldOregon February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for questionable tummies I was feeding this product regularly when it was suggested that I try another brand. well, after 3 months feeding a different brand, we are back on Nutro Venison and brown rice (though I would like to see venison and oatmeal). My dogs do really well on this food. I have both whippets and Rhodesian Ridgebacks February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dog loves it! I feed my dog this product because I have used Nutro since day 1. I have been using Nutro for over 10 years with more than one dog. I have tried many other brands throughout the years and I would only recommend Nutro. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Parker Loves Venison My dog had a problem with rashes for years until we switched to this dog food. She loves it and always wants more! When I open a new bag, she is right there wanting some! I would recommend this food to anyone! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by great food My Rott cannot eat any other dog food except the Venision with whole brown rice. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's a miracle I have a 12 year old Rat Terrier that was having some back issues. Last year he would be walking along and his hind quarters would just give out. It would take him some time before he would get up. He wasn't able to jump up anymore and he certainly wasn't moving very fast at all. The vet had him on steroids for two weeks and although it helped I really didn't want to keep him on those for the rest of his life. I stopped in at a pet store to get some dog food and there was a rep from Nutro there. She told me some stories of some dogs that this food had helped. I gave it a try. Lightning has been on Nutro Venison for 2 1/2 months. Within the first month he greeted me at the door and jumped up on my leg. I gave him a big hug because that was the first time in over a year. He runs around like he was a puppy again. Although he still is a little slow in the morning getting up he is 110% better than he was. I'm just glad that he doesn't have to be on steroids. This food is amazing. I've also put my Lab on this food just as a preventative. Thank you so much! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shar-pei wonder food! Dr. Riddle, Orange County Ca. once told me this is the best food for shar-pei. She is right.It is more like a "wonder drug". I have had these dogs for 30 years and each time I tried other foods they have had problems. The venison is particular agreeable for dogs with delicate digestive tracts....I thank you Nutro!!! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dogs love this product We have 2 Yellow Labs. They love to eat. We had them on another brand of limited ingredient dog food but they had a problem with digestion and diarrhea. We shopped around and found Venison and Brown Rice for Sensitive Stomachs. They love it and all the digestive problems are gone. They have energy, stamina and a zest for life and we think it is because of Natural Choice. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Midknight loves it! When Midnkight eats other food he throws up. Not this! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Can't Get Enough Great Food Hi my name is Scout, I am a 9 year old female Chocolate Lab. My parents try their best to take care of me, but a couple years ago I ended up with a severe ear infection, an abscessed tooth and a few fatty deposits. I ended up having to go to my wonderful Vet., he took really good care of me and suggested I change the type of food I was eating. He suggested Natural Choice. Before switching brands of food, I was previously on a Lamb and Rice mixture but I just wasn’t that interest. I am also allergic to certain chicken products, they make me itch all the time. Yes, I am picky. So one day my Mommy brought home a huge bag of Natural Choice Venison Meal and Whole Brown Rice Adult Dog Food, and now I cannot get enough of it. Before, I would skip meals but now I am running to my bowl. I am so much happier, no more ear infections, my coat is shiny, no upset stomach, less fatty deposits, less Vet. visits, I am very happy little girl. I highly recommend this type of dog food to any doggie who has stomach problems, itching or flat out bored with their current food. Thank you Nutro for making me feel better. Scout P. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by quality Last Christmas we resuced our boxer Dozer.He came to us underweight,with mild hip dysplacia and his coat wasn't to healthy looking.A rep from your company just happened to be at the pet store when I was picking out food.We discussed his needs and this formula was suggested.One year later Dozer has gained 10 lbs,he has more muscle tone,his coat is thicker and healthier.He is a different dog.It just goes to show you what you put in really does matter.We are very happy with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for pets with allergies I switched from another major brand to Nutro Venison Meal & Whole Brown Rice Adult Dog food because my dogs has bad allergies and was extremely overweight. The previous food that I had him on was high in calories about 480 calories per 8 oz cup. The Nutro Venison is only about 270 calories per cup. My dog lost 5 pounds in the first month and eventually went from 43lbs down to 28lbs. The vet says he's perfect now and his allergies are under control. It's like I have a new puppy again, he's 5 y/o and more active and healthier than ever. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our dogs love Natural Choice We have two rescues that had several health issues when they came into our home. Our mini Doxie, Bama, had skin allergies and nothing helped. After several trips to the vet for treatment, a freind suggested that we try the Natural Choice Venison Meal and Whole Brown Rice Adult Dog Food, and we have had no further problems! They love it and we love the results!!! Their coats look so healthy and shiny!!!!! The Myers February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good for older dogs I have a 17 year old small mix who in her old age won't always eat. When I tried the venison and brown rice she really liked it. She is now eating regularly most of the time and is gaining back some of the weight she lost due to her anorexia. It is easy for her to eat, not too big and not too hard and it seems to be easy on her stomach. I highly recommend this product. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by I noticed a difference in my dogs coats right away My dogs have a tough time with any of the foods that has a primary protein source of chicken. I noticed a difference in the shine of their coats after two weeks. We do use other Nutro foods, but the venison is out favorite February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by BEST DOG FOOD I'VE FOUND !!!!! I have a dog with sensitvie skin and a sensitve stomach and since I've been using this dog food, he hasn't vomited at all !!!! I didn't think I'd ever find anything to help. Also clean up in the yard has been much easier !! It is a little more expensive but well worth it !! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better Ears. Yes, ears. I have a standard poodle, Persephone, and anyone who has a poodle knows that while on average they are healthy dogs they are prone to ear infections. Mine has one ear that gives her constant trouble, since she was about 12 weeks old, (she is two and half now). I read that a food allergy can contribute to that when I always thought it was just her goofy hair. We've noticed a marked improvement in her ear after finishing only 1 40 lb bag of the Natural Choice, Venison flavor. And she loves it so there is no extra work involved in getting her to eat it. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Life is much better now for all of us I have two dogs a 4 year old Rottweiler and a 3 year old Boxer. For most of us in the boxer world, we know that food allergies and sensitive stomachs comes with the territory of owning a boxer and just when I thought I had it all figured out it happened. Yep, my rottweiler who was at the time 3 years old developed food allergies to his food which was NOT a Nutro product. For weeks I was back and forth to the vet trying to figure out why he was throwing up every morning. After weeks of carpet cleaning and numerous restless nights I was told to try Natural Choice Venison and Whole Brown Rice. From the start of the food change process, I noticed his morning puke sessions had ended but what makes this even better is my boxer also eats the same food and is not itchy. Life is wonderfully easy now thanks to this Nutro brand. I have two healthy and happy pups which makes for a very happy mommy. Plus, everyone always stops us and tells me how great their coats look. We are one happy family and life is so much better now for all of us. :-) February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful product I've used Nutro Natural Choice for several years now. First I never have to worry about issues with quality, but more than anything my oldest dog hasn't had a "hot spot" since she's been on this food. I had tried everything I could to stop her pain and discomfort until I found Nutro!I also love the fact the formula includes Glucosamine & Chondroitin, since both dogs' breeds are subject to hip dysplasia. They both love the taste too. I could not be happier or feel more comfortable feeding my dogs this food. Thank you! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for Long Coats After I adopted Daisy from the animal shelter, I had no idea how fast my home would become covered in dog hair. An employee at my pet store recomended the Venison and Brown Rice variety of Nutro saying it would reduce her shedding and be good for her coat. What a difference it has made. We still have some shedding, but not nearly as much and her coat has really filled out. Looking at pictures from her first day home, you can really tell this food has made a difference. Thank you very much! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Dog Food! We have 2 shelties - almost 8 year old. They are brothers. We previously fed them a grocery store dry dog food. Both dogs have had issues with skin allergies, diarrhea, vomiting, etc. I researched and found that most dog foods have corn as a main ingredient and that corn can cause these issues in dogs. After trying another well-known brand for sensitive systems, we decided to try Nutro Natural Choice Venison Meal and Whole Brown Rice formula. Wow! What an amazing difference in both dogs in just a week!! They definitely have less of these sensitive system issues. This food is pricey especially when you are feeding 2 dogs; but so worth it. Occasionally, I try a different brand because it is cheaper and immediately their issues arise. I switch back and everything is all right. So, I will not switch again! It is just not worth the stress to the dogs or to us. Nutro is a wonderful brand! I love the fact that it also contains natural sources of glucosamine for joints and anti-oxidants. Our dogs are happier and so are we! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love This Product !!! Abbie is our yellow Lab who has had skin problems since the day we brought her into our family. Abbie is now 1 1/2 years old and has scratched and itched since she was 7 weeks old. We took her to our Vet who ran numerous tests for fleas, scabies, etc which all came out negative. We were consistantly told that our pup was too young to have allergies. We changed her food to another brand and only gave her treats that were organic and natural. We bathed her in prescription shampoo, but nothing changed. The first year after we got her she was regularly on steriods to control the itching, however, the minute we stopped the medication, the itching returned. We finally went to another Vet who suggested we use the food they sell and they gave her a steriod shot. The shot helped but the food didn't help at all. Frustrated we decided to just put her on Nutro which we feed our other dog, Shadow, a 7 year old Lab/Hound Mix. We were surprised and happy to find a Nutro brand that was for sensitive skin. We purchased it and have happily noticed that her itching has almost stopped. Except for an occasionaly scratch, she is itch free. We are so thankful for the Nutro Venison and Brown Rice dog food. Abbie loves the taste and is a happier dog....Thank you Nutro February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great allergy solution My 2 year old shepherd mix has constant skin allergy issues. He was responding well to steroids but when he needed several knee surgeries this summer his pain medication couldn't be taken with the steroids and we had to find an alternative allergy solution.We tried several low ingredient or sensitive diet brands but none helped alleviate his rashes or ear infections and while on crate rest for his surgery he kept chewing his irritate feet.Finally our trainer recommended Nutro. We saw a big improvement in just a few weeks. He loves the food and our other picky eater does too. Since starting him on this six months ago he has had no allergy outbreaks, no more vomiting, and better skin. I was also pleased to see there was some glucosamine and chondroitin as he is developing arthritis and it will help lessen his symptoms. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dogs love this food and it makes them healthy. I have one dog with stomach problems and one dog with allergies. Both eat the venison and rice blend.The schipperke, Bandit, was having stomach problems and trouble with her liver a few years ago. The vet said to put her on venison dog food. We started with Nature's recipe, but she didn't really like it.The Mountain Cur, Nikki, had allergies to wheat. When on the Nature's recipe, she was still scratching pretty significantly.We switched both dogs to Nutro and besides absolutely loving it, their symptoms were significantly reduced.My husband and I love the fact that there are very few ingredients in the food. The fact that Bandit has made it to almost fourteen years old after developing stomach and liver problems when she was only eight, speaks for itself. We are thankful to Nutro for extending the lives of both our dogs. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for Boston Terriers! I adopted two rescued Boston Terriers. As any Boston parent knows, these dogs can be a little stinky and have digestive issues. One of my babies didn't have any existing digestive issues, so I was able to immediately switch her to the venison formula. Dramatic change! She is healthy and full of energy! The other baby had a lot of issues, so I started her out on the weight management due to the high fiber. Once she became more regular, I slowly switched her over to the venizson formula. She has filled in nicely, has a beautiful coat, and enjoys life! I highly recommend this food. The only negative is that the price has increase at least $6/bag in the last 6 months. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by No more tummy aches!! I used to feed my Boxer, Morgan, Nutro several years ago and in an effort to save a little money, I switched to a less expensive leading brand. Over the years, her stomach seemed to get more and more sensitive. She was having weekly episodes of vomiting and/or diarrhea, yes WEEKLY! I took her to the vet, spent lots of money on tests, but everything was fine.Remembering that I used to feed her Nutro, I ventured back to Petsmart to check out their selection. I immediately went for the Venison and Brown Rice Formula (which she had eaten several years back). We switched a few months ago and it's like night and day. NOT ONE SINGLE UPSET TUMMY EPISODE SINCE. I have determine that my Morgan is probably allergic to Corn and/or Chicken, the two main ingredients in leading brand dog food. My Boxer is just as happy as ever, Mom is happy too - no more costly vet bills or dreaded clean up after a sick dog! Paying a little bit more for this food - has saved me lots of money at the vet, boarding and carpet cleanings, etc. We love Nutro, but most importantly, so does Morgan! She gobbles it right up when you put it in her bowl. THANK YOU NUTRO FOR PROVIDING A FOOD THAT AGREES WITH MY ADORABLE BOXER!We will never switch to another brand!!! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Natural Food Source for Dogs My dog has been eating Natural Choice Venison Meal for 6 years. It is the only food he loves. His coat is gorgeous and he has no digestive issues on the food. My vet keeps telling me he is in perfect health.I believe that venison is a natural food source for dogs - it is a meat they would be eating if they were scavanging in the wild. The protein and fat ratio makes it perfect. I have recommended Natural Choice Venison to many people and everyone who has tried it has thought it wonderful. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by skin and coat preformance My dogs had extremely bad allergys to wheat, when I found the venison formula and transfered them over their skin improved. They also had really bad ear infections but not now all four of my dogs are extremely healthy and have no skin problems at all. Thank you nutro. February 17, 2011
