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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nutro Weightloss Great food. Tried vet recommended diet food and it didn't work. Switched to Nutro Weightloss and Lady has lost 7.5 lbs. in three months. Good stool too! Highly recommend that you give this one a try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Consistent, great quality food for over 15 years I've been feeding my Yorkies this food for over 15 years and they feel and look great. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pounds melted off Watched the pounds melt off my 6 year old Siberian Husky. I chose this brand and type cause of the lower calorie count. My female husky isn't a huge fan of exercise. Gradually over the course of a summer, she started looking much trimmer and leaner. Her coat was beautiful also. Highly recommend if your dog needs to drop a few, but doesn't care to move too much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy and full of goodness Both of my beagles are beautiful from eating your Nutro healthy and full of goodness food. All of the Nutro products are well made and reflect the quality the Nutro Name instils along with confidence they are getting a well balanced meal. They are shinny and full of energy. Thanks Nutro!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
