No more skin allergies
| Loki and mom

When my dog was young I discovered he had skin allergies and my vet said his food could be the cause (specifically avoid wheat, soy and dairy). We tried several top dog foods at the time, but Nutro remains to be the one that works best for him. He is a boarder collie and Nutro supported his high energy lifestyle. Now he is a 17 year old senior in great health and I trust Nutro provides the nutrients he needs to support his joints and digestion.

Finicky Pups & Long Time Preferred!
| Stacey

I've been using Nutro products for over 20 years now, way before it became popular in the pet stores. Then there were fewer choices and the dominant ones were Iams & Science Diet. But since it was all natural & the first few ingredients weren't corn or grains it made sense to not pay the extra. Now, I feel that is, even more, the case. Why pay for all the fancy advertising? I also became the owner of rescued Chihuahuas. They proved to be even pickier than my previous pups. (Poodle, Yorkie & Lhasa Apso) Nutro was has been the preferred kibble over anything else we tried!!
