Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ingredients change-dog cannot eat anymore Nutro's Lamb and Rice Large Breed was great for my highly allergic dog. After the most recent ingredient change in 2015, my dog can no longer tolerate this food. I just wish dog food companies would stick with a formula that works well for so many dogs, instead of changing ingredients every year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dog doesn't like it My Shepherd/Lab mix has always devoured his kibble and I switched him to this 2 bags ago and he wants nothing to do with it, I have to sit by him and prod him to eat his food. Going to try the Senior next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy dog and beautiful coat I noticed my Labs skin was very dry and after trying several different types of bath products I investigated changing his food. Within just a few weeks of using the Nutro Natural Choice food, I noticed a huge difference. He's been eating this food for 2 years now and his skin and coat is beautiful and shiny. I would absolutely recommend this food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will always give my canines this product I will always give my canines Natural Choice products. My boy has always been on Natural Choice and his breeder feeds all of her dogs Natural Choice. Other dog food brands, even when they advertise they are healthy, will have way too many fillers with no nutritional value. Duke loves this food, has been on it for 3 years, and has never turned his nose up at it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Food This food is great food for dogs with a sensative stomach. My husky gets sick if she eats almost anything other than this food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chinnook owner We have had dogs in the past with multiple skin allergies and the Lamb and Rice formula cleared the skin and created a magnificent coat. Presently, our Chinnook is healthy, active and has gained the needed weight for his size and has maintained that weight for over two years. With Nutro products he is satisfied with less food. Would not use any other product. Thank you.
