        My cat has finally found a food that doesn’t make him sick. He has an extremely sensitive system and this is the only dry food that has helped his digestive system. No more vomiting or diarrhea. I thought I was going to lose him.

        I adopted my cat from the Humane Society when he was 7 months old. When I first brought him home I noticed his breath was bad. I started him on dry food right away. As time passed I never noticed much change in his breath problem. Then one day I received a coupon in the mail for Nutro cat food so on my next trip to Walmart I bought a bag. The results have been amazing. After eating the Nutro for almost a year now my cat has blossomed into a very handsome fellow. His breath is not stinky anymore, his fur is like silk and he is one happy healthy boy. Thank you, Nutro.

          I free feed dry food for both my personal cats and my fosters. I offer them three brands of cat food and the Nutro bowl is definitely the most popular. I have not experienced loose stools or vomiting with the Nutro Indoor adult cat food. I've been using it for about one year now. Thanks Nutro.

          Nutro used to have a very healthy wet cat food product line. Unfortunately, they made the decision a few months ago to replace their existing cans of food with new packages, called "perfect portion". It has been going down hill since then: the "perfect portion" products is packaged in plastic, not metal, which alters the taste of the food itself. Consequently, many cats refuse to eat it. In addition, their plastic containers are less eco-friendly than the old metal cans. In short, Nutro decided to move to the "perfect portion" packaging because it gave them an opportunity to increase their margin: cheaper container, and less food in it for a higher price than before. They just forgot one important piece in the puzzle: cats are notoriously finicky, and can't stand the new plastic packaging.

          i switched my female cat from Purina to Nutro dry cat food (indoor chicken) last month. Although she liked the taste, she has had diarrhea for a week now, and after a vet visit it seems they suspect it may be the food. I noticed Nutro has had more than a few recalls in the past 20 years, I will avoid it like the plague and recommend others really watch their cats on this food as it may also upset their gi system.

          So, I recently purchased this product, believing it to be a premium pet food. Within the space of a week I have one kitty that has had diarrhea so bad her little bottom is raw, and the other kitty has stopped eating. A quick search of the internet, proves I am NOT an isolated case, seems many people have pointed a finger at this pet food... Only wish I had done a bit more research myself before I wasted money on this product.

          I fed NUTRO to my big old Maine Coon cat... Such a boy! He threw it up! I tried adding a half amount to his old food... He selected and ate only the "other" brand; leaving the NUTRO in his bowl! Then I tried just leaving the NUTRO in his bowl. He refused to eat! After 24 hours I gave up! Called NUTRO to complain about this bag of food. They gladly sent me a coupon for another bag of NUTRO! (I understand that once in a while... a bag of cat food might go bad due to weather, transporting problems, etc.). So I received the coupon in mid January 2019. I tucked in my purse and when the other brand was almost gone last Friday (02/15/2019) I went into a store to use the FREE BAG OF NUTRO! Coupon. It expired 01/31/2019!!! Man, was my face RED when the clerk wouldn't accept this EXPIRED COUPON!!! Who'd a thought this would be a two week Use it! or Lose it! Coupon???

          I bought this because it was on sale and is the same flavor as the brand my cat was eating. The bag has a strange smell that I think carried over into the food. My cat would not eat it, and was eating a quarter of her normal amount of kibble. It was like putting her on a severe diet, which my vet says can be really bad for cats. After four days I went back to her normal brand and am going to donate what is left of this.

          My cat's fur looks & feels like Velvet. She is very healthy! I contend that this highest quality food (Nutro Cat & Kitten dry food) is the reason she is so healthy and happy. The expense is worth every penny. I believe it is an investment for her health as she gets older.

          The cats like Nutro Indoor. They also seem to have less solid stool that is not runny as happens with some other brands. Their breath also smells better than with some of the other brands.
