we have a beautiful german shepherd she is about 9 years now. She has been on Nutro for many years. I like the product because it keeps her regular. I had to get a cheaper product on time and she left a huge pile and didn't look healthy. My only complaint is that when I bought a bag of nutro last time I've noticed that the 40lbs bag was only 30lbs and just as expensive.

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?
