Product Reviews

Limited Ingredient Diet Adult Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5048.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brought out our dogs personality. We've got 2 mixed breed dogs. Both with very different temperments. The larger one was very lethargic and even though she was only 8 weeks old when we got her she never really acted like a puppy. She had a bad reaction to another brand of dog food which we found to be an allergy. We were recommended Nutro by our vet as an alternative. Its been the best choice we ever made for her. She is much more energetic, playful, and friendly compared to her shy and tired demeanor before. While Nutro is more expensive it is worth every penny to have happy, loving and happy dogs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I thought This was a good food I was a loyal customer for Nutro products. I have fed my lab who is 5 yrs old this food for about 4 of his 5 years. He has always had stomach issues and I was recommended this food. For the first few years I thought perhaps the food was helping but Charlie still always had a sensitive stomach and very large, soft stool with strong odor. Especially compared to my boyfriends lab who is on a different food. We tried Carlie (my lab) on his labs food and Charlie's stool seemed to improve greatly and almost instantaneously. I compared ingredients on both bags and while I don't see much difference in the initial ingredients, the new food I have tried does not have green tea in it and it also had a ton more fruits and vegetable than the Nutro Lamb and Rice formula. Considering the results Ive seen I will be making a switch. This could be simply just a sensitivity with my dog however.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food for sensitive stomach I switched all three of my Toy Fox Terriers to Nutro brand for various reasons with each dog. Roxi has a sensitive stomach, prone to pancreatitis and sheds excessively. So far, she is doing great. Her coat looks better, less shedding, and no stomach problems. I am very particular about what my dogs eat, and made their food for 4 years. My vet felt that the homemade food was too hard on my 2 dogs with sensitive stomachs. I tried one brand that didn't provide enough nutrients, which was obvious with all three dogs. I called Nutro and asked for advice on the best products for each dog. I ordered the Nutro foods and so far am very happy with the results. Nutro, please keep a good product on the market that consumers can continue to trust. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Research confirms we are feeding Luna the best! Our 10 lb. terrier mix came to us having eaten the Small Bites at the rescue, so we bought a bag to take home with her. She enjoys the food and is very healthy, but after a year I wanted to investigate some other brands that seemed "better." I will not trade this food for any other! I have learned that it is made of quality ingredients and a complete formula, including glucosamine and chondroitin. The foods that seemed better (claims, nicer packaging) cannot hold a candle to the Nutro brand!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Benefits are Wonderful! We are on our 4th much loved Old English Sheepdog and they have all loved this dog food. We tried other brands but there were too many digestive issues. With the limited ingredient lamb and brown rice our pups have been happy and their coats were all beautiful too. We have the food delivered and our current Oliver loves when he received the package:-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have had 6 dogs over 25 yrs on Nutro Lamb & Rice My first experience with Nutro goes back to 1991 when we picked up Elvis, our 6 week old Basset Hound from the breeder. He lived for 15 plus years and was a healthy happy dog. At his full adult age, Elvis weighed 92 lbs. and did not have an oz. of excess body fat. He never ate anything else. Dog's like Elvis with long spins commonly have bone and joint issues later in life, Elvis never had any issue's like that. In 1993 we got Elvis his Pricilla, a Beagle that lived for 13 plus years, and we now have two rescue Cockers in the age range of 8 - 10 yrs. Recently picked up Ace, who looks a lot a Patterdale Terrier in the Tomball Texas Medical Center parking lot. Let's say he has brought a spark to the life of two old Cocker's life. They all love the food and are as healthy as can be. Our Vet always congratulates us on our dogs body weight and condition. We feed according to his instructions and they only get Nutro Lamb & Rice mixed with a bite of Nutro canned chicken, rice, and oatmeal. I just wished you guys couponed and ran specials on the Small bites, our dog's love them. Its a good dog food and we will not feed them anything else!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My only choice on the market With all the new debates over grain free or not, I am staying with nutro natural choice, our last golden retriever passed at 14 1/2 on a steady diet of nutro. Shadows wt was controlled using nutro,so joint issues never became an issue. Our new 15 mo golden Shotsy is now on nutro natural. The. Variety of meats and poultry nutro offers gives us satisfaction that he has a wholesome diet. On occasion we will slice some fresh carrots or apples as a treat as well or add to his dry food. We have confidence in nutros products.
