Adult Lite Weight Loss Dog FoodChicken, Whole Brown Rice & Oatmeal Recipe

NUTRO® Lite Adult Dog Food helps overweight dogs achieve a more healthy weight. The very first ingredient in this nutritionally complete, low-calorie, natural diet dog food is U.S.-farm-raised chicken. Our weight management dog food delivers amino acids that overweight dogs need to build lean muscle and maintain a healthy metabolism. We’ve also perfected a mix of high fiber and protein to help dogs feel full, which can reduce their food intake to aid in weight loss. Think of it as all of the nutrients adult dogs need — without the extra calories. Plus, we guarantee improved taste or your money back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kibble size changed Why change the kibble size? Now smaller triangles vs the squares. My doxie crunched the squares but now just swallows whole the triangles. I wish the square kibble would come back. March 5, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by My dogs love it I had to switch to this dog food for my 3yr old Male Boxer. He developed Panceritits and needed to be put on a low-fat dog food. My Female Boxer who is a year old also loves it! I was surprised at how fast they took to the new food from day 1! So far my Male hasn't had anymore problems! December 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by IT WORKS My Bulldog was overweight by 7 pounds. He doesn't get any exercise except to go up & down stairs. Since feeding this for about 8 months, he has lost 5 pounds & is now down to an acceptable weight. More important, he now has a defined waist. He loves the taste. September 19, 2014

Rated 3 out of 5 by Why Does Nutro Add Salt? My dog likes this food and it seems to digest well, but I can't give it a recommendation because of the added salt. Because of this I cannot use for my older dog. June 15, 2013
