Not only will our natural large breed dog food offer a taste your dog will enjoy, but it also will aid in digestion by helping your dog’s digestive system better absorb available nutrients. And because it’s packed with vitamins, minerals and amino acids, your dog will always get the nutrition they deserve.

Product Reviews

Large Breed Adult Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4514.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best coat at the dog park! My 3 year old lab has been eating nutro since he was a puppy, and he is in excellent health. His coat is shiny, shedding is minimal and he loves it (although he tends to love everything...NOT a picky eater). He hasn't had any joint problems either, which tend to plague labs (although usually at an older age). I would highly recommend this food!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from formula change I cannot keep up with the bag changes, color changes, name changes...! Even the store can no longer help to guarantee I have bought the same product with all the changes. My dog is limping again because the added glucosamine is no longer available. I will definitely need to research a new brand after ten years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picky Eater actually eats this food!! We adopted our 3 year old newfounddand a few months ago. He was such a picky eater and would go more than a day without eating unless i put hotdogs or cheese in the food. We tried a few very expensive brands that didnt help. My mom suggested this so we bought the large breed. Now onyx will eat it without anything in it! Finally!!! Also this foor is more reasonably priced and is better than food we tried. LOVE IT

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shedding and Labrador Retrievers When our puppy was 10 weeks old, we came across a representative in our local Pet Smart that was consulting folks on dog foods. When I mentioned that our old lab that we lost suffered from extreme shedding...she recommended I try Nutro. The result? AMAZING. Very minimal shedding along with the shiniest coats I've seen on a dog. I highly recommend Nutro. I am pleased with the nutrition it offers to our now adult dog as well as the lack of shedding. :-) Win/Win

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Need Bigger Bags I used to buy 60lb bags of this and it made sense then. Just ordered a 30lb bag and am wondering why I did that. Price is out of whack. Had not ordered Nutro in about 5 years. Shoulda 2x checked what I was ordering. My bad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but Pricy ThIs is one of the best dog food that I get for my dog but it's a little on the expensive side....that is why I switched to foster and smith...the food is the same if not higher quality for a much cheaper price...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the product...can't stand their business First off, let me say that I absolutely LOVE the product. The product is great. It is by far and away the best I've used for my pups. However, due to the company's business practice, I have decided to no longer purchase this product.I'll explain, in just 5 short years, the package has shrank from 50-55 pounds to 30...a 40% 5 years!!! During that time, the price of the product didn't shrink fact, it has increased. Coincidentally, (NOT!), the most recent decrease in the packaging size came with a complete redesign of the bag...yeah, it's nice and flashy, but give me a break.A 40+% decrease in amount of product doesn't translate to a 10% increase in price. That just doesn't compute!I'm taking my money elsewhere!
