Product Description

Dogs between the ages of 6 months and 2 years old are young adults. Young adult dogs might look full-grown, but they still need nutrients for development — without the extra calories that lead to early weight gain. The NUTRO™ Brand is the first pet food company to identify this nutritional need and offer natural young adult dog food formulas. NUTRO™ Young Adult Dog Food ensures dogs get the natural nutrition they need for proper development of the brain and nervous system and strong, healthy bones. It’s a real difference you can actually see. Learn More About the Young Adult Life Stage.
