Product Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 22reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by New Formula -Too much protein! Our vet put our 4 year old dog on Nutro's grain free Turkey and Potato years ago due to a sensitive stomach. Besides being grain free, it also had a lower protein content than other brands.(easy to digest) Our dog was doing great for the past two years on this brand until they pulled it off the market. Nutro is not only doing away with their grain free brands that have Turkey and Chicken as a prime ingredient, they are also increasing the formula to a much higher protein content from 21% to 31%t. We are now faced with looking for an alternate brand. It makes no sense as to why they would be making such drastic changes to their formula unless their is a problem we are unaware of . I think this will be a poor decision on Nutro's part and will cause issues with many dog owners who are forced to make a switch in thier dogs' diet. August 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Where is it? My 8 1/2 year old lab has a very sensitive stomach. I can not find this near me anywhere anymore! Is it being discontinued? August 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Food! We absolutely love this product! My dog has horrible food allergies and after months of searching we finally found this month we have been on this food for a while now and she hasn't had one issue!! I recommend this food to anyone. Recently the all the pet stores have stopped having it. I keep hearing it is being taken off the market please tell me this isn't the case!:) July 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lamb and Potato is the best Petsmart just told me this product is no longer available! I tried 10 other foods before I found this one my dog Clover can tolerate. And she loves the taste and her coat is gorgeous. Please, please tell me you are still making lamb and potato formula. July 19, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by lamb and potato grain free dog food Thank you for this product as my dog is finally happy and free of messy and frequent stools and many digestive problems. This is the BEST food for her. I have tried many brands and varieties in the seven years since we have had her and this is the only brand that she can tolerate. Thanks for the product. July 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for sensitive stomachs My dog had minor ulcers as well as chronic ear infections and this food helped clear both up! Also, she absolutely loves it more than any other food she has eaten. Highly recommended for food intolerances and sensitive stomachs! February 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sensitive tummy I love this food for my dog! And so does he lol. I started him out on a big brand name and was told that under no circumstances, would I be able to switch it later on. However, Logan just couldn't handle it after his puppy year was up and we switched him to the adult version of the same brand. Thankfully, I found this site and read threw TONS of reviews to find the right food. Logan now no longer has weird bowel movements or throws up constantly. I will NEVER switch from this brand, and I'm seriously considering switching our cat's food too :) Thank you! August 31, 2013
