Was great until changed formulation
favorite favorite favorite favorite_border favorite_border| Lovemylab

Our choc lab has suffered from stomach and skin issues since a puppy. We tried different foods mostly to address the stomach issues and found she tolerated the original sensitive stomach chicken and oatmeal very well. By pure luck, her skin issues, that had caused her to suffer terribly, completely disappeared. And she loved it. We continued for several years to buy it til one day we opened a new bag and her skin conditions returned with vengence. Frustrated by manufacterers that always have to "improve" their products, we went on the search again for a new brand. After trying several other products, we determined that she was troubled by chicken. We came back to the Nutro brand and tried the previous version of the Venison food and, yea!, the skin allergy symptoms disappeared, and her stomach was still in good shape. We had been on that food for about a year and then, one day, opened a new bag and now we have the skin issues again. After reading comments here, I realize that there have been changes to the formulation. I just wonder why manufacterers have to keeping tweaking their products despite the fact that they have thousands of positive reviews. I guess we will be on the hunt again. Sigh :(

great for dogs with different problems
favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite| ally

my one dog was having really bad stomach and digestive problems. he is allergic t a lot of things. he was having diarea and sometimes blood in his stool. we switched him to this food and the difference is amazing. he is a pit and they are known for allergy problems. when we got my other dog she had major skin issues. this food works so well for both of them! so worth it!
