Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 14reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Senior Small Bites I've been feeding my small dog Nutro for the last 10 years. I've been feeding her Nutro Small Bites for Adults (1+ yrs). When can Nutro start making Small Bites for 'Seniors'? She's 13 yrs old and would like to try Small Bites for Seniors because she has lost a few teeth in the last two years. November 8, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Disappointed you are no longer selling 15 lbs bag I have 2 small senior dogs, both love this product, and I have been buying the 15 lb bag which lasts about 1 month and still keeps fresh. Now my local pet stores have told me that Nutro is No Longer Selling this Small Breed Senior Product in the 15 lb bags, only selling the very small bags. This is Unacceptable. Now, I will have to find a new brand that does sell the 15 lb bag. Prices on the small bags are way too high in comparision to what I paid for the 15 lb bag. Why did you ruin a good thing?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bigger Bags I love Nutro. this is the only food I have ever feed my 4 Chihuahuas. With having 4 dogs I do wish that we could buy bigger bags as all of our dogs are over 8 years of age. Also wish that you would send out coupons for this product. November 2, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great dog food - BIGGER BAG PLEASE I have been feeding my dog nutro since he was a puppy and has never had any medical issues, allergies etc. He is as healthy as can be. I just wish the bags came in a bigger size then 8 lbs. I have two dogs and have to buy dog food every week and a half, and its never on sale! I would buy two bags at a time but its hard to stomach $50 for 16 lbs of food :( August 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by MY two twin Shih tzu's boys love it ! My would'nt feed my boys anthing else , just wish it came in a larger bag. Also wish they had coupons ! January 13, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bag sizes My 2 dogs love this product but I have one problem. When I go to buy it (small size 8lbs 8+ years senior 10-25 lbs) it is never on sale and I don't have the option to purchase the largest size which is always on sale. I have 2 dogs so I naturally go through it faster than if I only had 1 dog. When and where can I get coupons so that I can share the same discounts as others that purchase the larger bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Food I have a 12.5 yrs old Miniature Poodle who has diabetes and atypical cushing's disease and I tried so many different food and finally found Nutro Natural Choice Small Breed he was on the Adult food but I have switched him over to the Senior food and he loves it even more and seems to be helping his joints more because Cushing's causes weak muscles in the later stages of it and Bear was just at the vet and she said that Bear has lived longer than dog she has seen with both diseases with no cure he is going on 3 yrs and most daibetic or cushing's dogs only live about 1-2 yrs I have to credit Nutro and My Miniature American Eskimo who is 5 just love it also she is a rescue and when we got her she didn't even look like a American Eskimo now 2 yrs later she has just a beautiful coat and energy even my vet and groomer says she doesn't look the same dog she is eating the Small Breed Senior too. Thanks Nutro for great food Bear and Spice both Thank You TOO! January 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Won't EVER Use Anything Else I will admit I was seduced by a cheaper brand. After doing the slow change over, everything seemed fine at first. My two doxies (10 years old) had never had anything but Nutro, and took to the "new food" fine. The problem came a few weeks later.Both of my ladies got constant horrible gas. Their coats shed uncontrollably and turned dull and wirey. They both started scratching and chewing. It all let up to waking one morning and seeing one of my girls face swollen huge. After rushing to the vet at 6:30 in the morning, while waiting for the blood tests to come back, he explained to me that dogs don't have allergic reactions to food and medicines like humans had. It had to be something else. All the bloodwork and tests came back normal. She'd had a reaction to the "new food".I went back to Nutro, and both my girls are back to their amazing selves. Coats are back to beautiful, no more itching and scratching, no more gas, and they are healthy and happy. I will NEVER let this happen again!!!Thanks Nutro for having a great American product!!
