Adult Lite Weight Loss Dog FoodLamb & Rice Recipe

Less active dogs often carry extra weight. An overweight dog can benefit from a diet that blends high fiber and proper protein levels. NUTRO™ Lite Adult Recipes can help adult dogs feel full and reduce their overall food intake, which can help with weight loss. Our nutritionally complete, low-calorie formula is made with two primary ingredients: real Australian and New Zealand lamb and whole brown rice, which helps promote easier digestion. Omega-6 fatty acid (linoleic acid), zinc and B vitamins also support healthy skin and a soft, shiny coat. We use premium ingredients and no artificial colors or flavors so it has a natural flavor dogs will enjoy, guaranteed.

Package Sizes Available: 5 lbs., 15 lbs., 30 lbs.

Product Reviews

Adult Lite Weight Loss Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4019.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I have two dogs, both with weight issues. My 6 year old puggle also has a sensitive stomach and I had a hard time finding a food that didn't give him some sort of stomach trouble. This was the first food that gave him no problems (and I tried many!). He's been on this for three years now, lost the extra fat and has maintained a healthy weight no problem. My 16 month basset hound was 69 lbs back in April when I started her on this food, and now five months later she's down to a healthy 52 lbs. They both love the food and would eat the whole giant bag if I let them. My parents have recently started their very overweight puggle on this food. Two months in you can see a difference, and they've tried many other "diet" foods with no results. Plus the dogs' coats are softer and shinier than with other foods I've tried. I'd definitely recommend this food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Pet Mommy My 8 year old Jack Russell mix dog, Sophie, has been enjoying Nutro dog food from the time she was an 8 week old puppy. I started her on the puppy food, and gradually she was introduced to Lamb & Rice formula. For the past 2 years she has been enjoying Nutro Lite Lamb & Brown Rice dry. I mix it with boiled green beans and boiled white meat chicken twice a day. She has maintained her weight at 20 pounds during this time. She truly enjoys her twice a day meals and I must add, as a proud mommy, her coat absolutely glistens. I've been a regular user of Nutro products for over 14 years and I have always been happy with the results as they have helped to keep my precious babies healthy. My only concern is the fact that there are never available coupons for any of your products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Weight loss I had tried several weight reduction foods for my slightly overweight 8 yr old boxer. She's not super active and loves to eat.. started her on Lite little over a month ago and can already see a difference. She loves the food and doesn't seem to be hungry. She really enjoys it when we mix some of the canned lite food with the dry for a special dinner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best food for my girls Nutro lite lamb and brown rice is great. I have two toy poodles, one a little chubby and the other a model at just under 6 pounds. Both girls love the food and prefer it over other dry food. They have great hair and skin with bright eyes. The vet is very pleased with them. My husband keeps wanting to change their food because it is a little more expensive . I won't let him and figure we spend about fifty cents a day on their food. Thanks for a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not able to find Lite Adult dog food. Like this dog food, but we are unable to locate it in our area. Have bee looking for about a month and none of the stores have the Adult Lite in the stores. We are told the company sends the food, so I guess they are not doing a very good job. Having to feed our dogs something other than the Lite and not very happy.
