Product Reviews

Large Breed Senior Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6046.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better since I made the switch I have a 14 year old black Lab mix that is a little on the smaller side. About four months ago I was looking at different brands of dog food because I wanted to start feeding my dog more healthy food. I did a lot of research and everything I looked at pointed me back to Nutro. I am very pleased with the results in just a short time. She is no longer sick and throwing up when she eats. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Dog Food My Shepherd/Husky mix has been on Nutro for 13 years and I am convinced that he is a healthy dog because of this food. Thank you Nutro!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed - Will never change again. Shyla is a 7 year old Black Lab / Collie mix that has been eating a different brand's Chicken and Rice natural version which was recently discontinued. Since it was time to move to a senior food, we decided to move her to Nutro's Natural Choice Senior, especially since it was also Chicken and Rice based. My first observation was the lack of any kind of filler. Shyla absolutely loves the food and eats it very quickly.I am excited for an unexpected benefit. Her stools are well formed and solid. This was something we never had on the old food, suddenly picking up after her is no big deal. THANK YOU Nutro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mom two Saints I was hearbroken to find out from my vet last week that my beloved Holly, is now considered a senior. She had been eating Lamb and Rice for Large Breed. for 5 years. I went to two local stores searching for the L&R Senior, I couldn't find it at either store.The store rep suggested I try the chicken version. I bought , brought it home and Holly LOVES the chicken flavor!! Whew, what a relief. Why don't the large breed bags come bigger than 30 pounds?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from German Shepherd Approved!!! Kianne is 10 1/2 and has become picky about the food she likes. I've been giving her Nutro for the past 5 or 6 years. Occasionally I will get a free bag of Eukanuba, Blue or Science Diet from a friend or shelter. When I put it in her dish, she'll look at it and then up at me... reluctantly she'll eat it.When I open up a fresh bag of Natural Choice, she'll hurry over and bury her head in the bag to taste test it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product! I have two Standard Poodles and they both have IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). They are 9 and 12 years old - after switching to the Senior Large Breed food, they have been doing great. I doubt that I will ever take them off this food.Both my dogs are rescues. Please be responsible pet owners!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from we always come back to Nutro We were feeding our black Lab and our German Shorthaired Pointer Nutro large breed, but we switched to the food our vet uses at the boarding kennel for a while. Our Lab started gaining too much weight and our GSP started losing! This is the opposite of what we wanted. I switched them both to Nutro Large Breed Senior food and things are so much better. Our GSP started eating much better. I think the other food was too hard for him to chew. Our Lab is more active and has stopped gaining weight. Thanks Nutro! I truly believe you make the best dog food on the market.
