Education is Key!

Great product and excellent education from brand representative at my local PetSmart. “Chris”, at my local PetSmart in Midtown, GA took the time to educate me on the different ingredients in dog food and the point of difference with Nutro dog food. Chris also helped me pick out the right size kibble for my breed and explained how because there’s no corn in the ingredients, my little “Emma” may not have to use the potty as often. Nutro, thank you for making great products, along with educating your representatives on what good customer service looks like.

Amazing Choice!!

I have a mini doxie who may not be a very finicky eater by taste but her tummy is very sensitive. I used to have a lot of trouble with her being very itchy and I read that it could be food related allergies, I was feeding her blue buffalo, which I thought because it was healthy it must be good. Well once I read over all the ingredients I realized it has all kinds of veggies and such that I had been reading many dogs are allergic too!! I found this to be completely insane they would put so many things most dogs can't eat in their dog food!! So I hit the pet store again with my list of must haves in a dog food in hand and thats when I came across Natural Choice. I was ecstatic! The itching stopped within a week or two, I noticed she is pooping regularly and easier, and she can't wait for meal time. We're never going back to anything else!! In fact when we adopted our cat I went straight for the natural choice to find the perfect selection of your cat food too!
