My 5 month old Chihuahua Lily has been on a lot of different foods in her little life. I try to find the most natural one. With these terrible reviews I tried to steer clear. I had her on this food at 8 weeks for a few weeks, took her off & started her on Wellness, then Whole Earth Farms & plenty of others. This is definitely the one I think she is the healthiest on & we always go back to this food. Heathy BMs, shiny coat, energy, and she loves the taste. This is by far not the worst food, but not the best ingredients wise. I especially steer clear of grain free. But instead of just reading the label & internet horror reviews, I used how my puppy is showing me how she feels! This food is our happy medium in my home. I recommend just trying different foods & seeing what seems best for your dog, bc every dog is different!

I tried Nutro food as it is highly recommended on some websites. There are so many foods out there to choose from nowadays that this seemed good. We have two sister Brittany Spaniels who are 7. It didn't affect the one at all. The other one it greatly affected. The first time she flipped off the couch having some sort of seizure so I quit the food for 6 months. We thought she had just fell off the couch then. Then like a dummy; I tried it again and she ran outside and began contorting. It was horrible. Do not buy this food it is a killer. So far my little fur baby is ok as I threw this horrible food away. Buyer beware.

    My six year old Min Pin Coco has been loving Nutro Wild Frontier dog food since he was born and he has thrived on it like no other. Well this brand is no longer produced and I am left with a whole case of it that is no longer edible for him. Just one call the Company was all it took to assist this 80 year old Vet with a one time compassion price reduction coupon that made it possible to feed my dog for about a month. In addition to a great product, this type of assistance really made an impression on me and will I am sure have an effect on anyone who reads this. Not many companies will do this for their customers.

    I can’t believe it. I’m lost for words. My 4month old fur baby is so sick it’s not even funny. It started off with my girlfriend changing her food to Nutro then I started noticing a sudden change in my dog’s behavior. She went from a healthy sweet loving puppy to a very ill baby. She started to vomit then the diarrhea started and now she is always thirsty and doesn’t really want to be active. I pray they discontinue this brand because there is people who really love their animals. I wouldn’t recommend this brand to anybody who really cares for their dog. This product is not safe and it needs to be removed from all stores. Please look into this.

    I tried Nutro for the first time and I am almost through the 30lb bag I bought. Since I have bought this food, my dog has been throwing up about once a week completely random for the past 5 weeks. Mostly in the AM or early afternoon, she has been showing signs of nausea and depression. I finally was able to get her in to the vet. My vet is amazing. He told me about all of issues with Nutro dog food and the multiple recalls.

    From Consumer Affairs: "In the past year, we've received nearly 500 complaints from pet owners who say their dogs or cats suddenly became ill after eat NUTRO. The problems these pets have experienced are similar: vomiting, diarrhea, and other digestive issues. Most of the complaints mirror one received last week." - from Linda P. Apr 20, 2009.

    Now this article is from 2009 but you can find dozens more. My dog has lost 5 lbs in the past month. I have been pregnant and sick myself and trying to move in addition to hardly any availability at my vet so I wonder how much worse she could have gotten if I didn't get her in to see him when I did!! Do NOT buy this food, it is dangerous!!!!

    I've been using Nature's Recipe dry puppy food, and I was looking for a wet puppy food to mix in with it to help him gain a little bit because he's underweight by a tiny bit. So I tried Nutro wet Puppy food since Nature's recipe didn't have a wet puppy food. I've been mixing it in for almost 2 weeks now. And twice I've only allowed him to have it by itself. Both times he has temporarily went blind in one eye. I'm furious. He is only 15 weeks old and should not be having these problems. I will never use this brand ever again.

    One treat given to my dog with no other changes to her diet and within hours she has full body tremors and vomiting. I’m very upset. I’m awaiting a vet to call me to see how to help my beloved dog. I hate that I didn’t review this brand first. There are tons of these same issues with this brand.

    I got a big bag of Nutro dog food for free for my dog. I tried this dog food for my dog and started having problems a few days later. I finally looked at the reviews and decided not to feed my dog this food anymore. I wish I would have looked at the reviews first. I did mix his old dog food with it. 50 50 mix. I noticed the other night he was shivering for no reason. It was not cold in our house at all. Going back to his old food.

    I've been feeding this food to my 2 miniature pinschers since 2008. They have always been very healthy. I had this product on auto ship. I noticed the kibble was not smooth. The kibble is rigid and have grains poking out of the kibbles. Since receiving the latest batch (approx 1 month ago), my dogs have been vomiting often. Half of the time it's been undigested dog food. It was 3am this morning and one of my girls started licking profusely. She started trembling uncontrollably and threw up her undigested food in 4 parts. This had me very worried. I was searching online about what it could be. It was in the back of my mind it could be their food because why else would two perfectly healthy dogs start to get sick since receiving a new bag of dog food. SURE ENOUGH! NUTRO changed their formula.

    Since the food was on autoship, I didn't know until I called Chewy customer service and they advised me that I had received a batch of their new formula. I won't be using their improved formula, I'll be looking for a new dog food for my babies. Ps. My brother's dog has been having stomach issues too (different household) and it's the same scenario, but different. UPDATE: I've started feeding Solid Gold and my dogs have not vomited or had seizure like episodes since feeding the new food.

    I started using Nutro Natural Lamb and Rice in 2011 when I got my second bulldog from a breeder that was using it. I did all the reviews and thought this was going to make a difference as previous bulldog did not have the best of health. AFter 9 years my dog started to get sick with seizures. She was perfectly healthy up until that time then she started having severe rhinitis. She was constantly throwing up her food. She lost 30 lbs in less than six months. She finally lost her battle to live. After 2 months I adopted another bulldog 3 years old in good health. I started to switch her dog food over to what we were feeding my previous bulldog. After her first day of all Nutro and nothing from the other food she started having seizures? I am now in transition of once again moving her off of Nutro. I have the dog food in a sealed container and would like to have it tested. I truly believe my dog died from this dog food.
