Nutro had a rebate going on, so I decided to try it; it has met and exceeded my expectations and it is a good price for the quality of ingredients used. My dog enjoys eating it more than most other brands. The original formula has complete nutrition, lots of meat protein and no corn products. Its ingredients are of high quality and the maker of the food seems to be interested in pet care and nutrition more than other brands are. However, you have to feed your dog more Nutro than other brands to get the same amount of nutrition, which makes the product not as good of a deal as some other brands of super-premium dog foods today.
High Endurance - I like it of good quality and high energy it gives my dog. My dog seems to like it every time I gave it to him and I would continue to purchase this. I like for them to have more variety and flavors. He is like any dog that is similar to human likes and don't like and he does get tired of certain flavor and he does like different flavor and gets really excited when I change his dog food. It has met my expectations for a good dog food. When I first saw this dog food brand, I was thinking this would be great for my dog. Something different and I can switch between other dog food.
My dog's old food made his stomach upset, and he would usually throw up each day. We ran a bunch of tests to see what was wrong with him, but nothing came up. The vet suggested that we try switching his food. I was at Petsmart, searching for a new dog food that would be good for a dog with a sensitive stomach. There was a Nutro Rep there that asked me what I was looking for and suggested I check out their food for sensitive dogs (lamb and rice formula.) She also offered me a coupon off my first bag. She was very helpful and walked me through a few questions I had.
I liked that they offered support in the store for buyers who were not sure what to get. I did not really know what to expect, because one of my dogs has a sensitive stomach, and another one of my dogs is picky. When we switched the Lamb and Rice formula from Nutro, he stopped throwing up. The dog food was great for his sensitive stomach. I think the food is great, and the price is reasonable. I am glad I found a dog food that I am happy purchasing, and all three of my dogs like to eat. It makes my life a lot easier!
I initially chose Nutro High Endurance because it's very healthy in comparison to other brands available. I was looking for the perfect food for her, as she is getting older she needs different nutrition than she needed before & this food provides her with exactly what she needs to eat. It gives my dog the energy she needs to get through the day. She enjoys the flavor of the food & eats this particular kind a lot better than others I have tried to give her before. My dog is a Great Dane so she eats a lot of food. I could definitely see buying a bigger quantity for a better value if it was offered.
My dogs really love Nutro. It comes in the perfect size and it's appetizing. I like that it is easy for my dogs to swallow. I maybe would improve on some of the flavors by adding more grains and real meat flavors or maybe even make some with gravy. However, they already offer a wide variety that my dogs really enjoy and I enjoy seeing them eat, so all in all I think it's great as is. I like that it is grain-free and chose it because it's healthy. It is very high quality and helps keep my dogs' coat shiny and clean.
Nutro grain free dog food keeps my food allergic pup's tummy happy with small bites for my smaller-sized pup. Also my pup is not as gassy and has less skin/fur irritation. However, I would like more flavor variety, more than just duck or lamb. Where's the fish? Or the beef? It has met and exceeded expectations as most other brands cause food allergies or skin/fur problems in my short-haired dog.
Original Formula - It was a trial for my puppy but she quit enjoying it after a couple days so I wasted my money and my dog is hungry. I hope they had more flavors that the dog would continue to eat and enjoy so that she would eat regularly.
Lite & Weight Management was recommended by a family member so I went ahead and purchased it. It is more expensive than I would prefer, but most dog foods tend to be pretty pricey. It has met my initial expectations, my dogs ate it without any issues and seemed to like it. It is light so it keeps my dog from gaining weight which is an issue for her. Also seems to keep her full which is positive as that's what's important because it isn't healthy for them to be overweight. We will see how things go moving forward though, they seem to sometimes get tired of some dog foods.
I like this Nutro dog food brand because it makes my dog happy. It met all my initial expectations for dog food and I found it to be very beneficial. I like that the Original Nutro Formula has the health factor of the dog food. It has a lot of vitamins and minerals that are good for my dog which is great.
My dogs really like it. They have never turned down a meal since I feed them Lite & Weight Management. Plus the kibble size is nice. It is not too small not too big. Also the price is good for the quality food. It smells bad in the covered I store it in. It has almost a fish odor to it but I believe ingredient is chicken. I clean the bin between every bag I buy to keep odor down. I believe Nutro Dog Food is a good name and is suppose to be a high quality food that I can depend on. I try to feed my dogs premium foods.
Most important, the dog likes Nutro original formula. It has good quality ingredients and looks nice and feels nice in the hand. It is not all crumbly like some of the cheaper foods. However, the price could be lower, a lot lower would help out on a budget. We are willing to pay a little more for a good quality food, but there are limits to our budget. It used to be less expensive. Also, if it could be available in more locations. It has been decades since we first bought Nutro brand dog food. It has been a good food, so we continue to buy Nutro.
I choose High Endurance this food simply because I love that it's made with real ingredients that actually help with digestive problems, coat problems and endurance problems and it's not putting any fake products in the food. I don't know what I'd do if I hadn't found this brand. It's simply amazing and while pure and simple I love it how amazing I found it!!! Ply pure and good for my furry friend. She deserves the best products and that's what Nutro Dog Food had.
Nutro Original formula is a much more natural dog food compared to other brands. My dog is allergic and requires natural dog food. The packaging is sturdy so I do not have to worry about it breaking open and spilling everywhere. If I had to improve the brand I would like to see more flavors to choose from. The flavors currently available seem odd somewhat and I feel like my dog would eat more if they had beef flavor. Prior to this brand, it has been trial and error finding a suitable dog food for my pet. After trying this brand of dog food, her hives and rashes have stopped completely.
I initially chose Nutro Dog to try a healthier food option without giving up taste and texture. I love that it is grain-free, and vet approved! I expected this food to provide higher quality nutrition and a taste my dog would enjoy - I am definitely pleased with the results. My dog loves the taste and texture and is very healthy and his coat is extra shiny since starting this food! Also, it has helped with some of my dog's digestive and coat issues. It is great and I would highly recommend High Protein-Grain Free to others for the same type of issues.
Grain Free - My dog really likes this brand. It does not have fillers like cheaper brands and they have had some high value coupons for it. She also likes the flavors available. I initially chose it because I had a high value coupon and it was on sale at Petco. It DID meet my initial expectations. As the price is high in the future I will likely MIX it with a more cost-effective brand.
We wanted a dog food that was healthy and supplied all the nutritional value. We try to eat organic foods and wanted the same for our babies (dogs). We like to have the assurance that our dogs are only getting the very best! I love that Nutro has all the health benefits that it has. It is an all natural dog food that is extremely healthy for my dogs and I know that they are getting all the health benefits that they daily need. I also love that they absolutely love the flavor of the original formula even if they do not know all the daily nutritional value. When I take their food to them they are extremely happy and I love to see their excitement! Nutro is simply AMAZING! The only thing that I don't like is that I can't buy Nutro by the truck loads and have it delivered here. The dogs would be extremely happy if that was the case.
My dog has skin issues and is allergic to wheat. I was at my wits end, tired of hot spots and I think that he is tired of them too so that is why we tried Nutro dog food that my friend recommended. She was selling it at Petsmart and took me to that section to show me the different kinds and explained why he needs that kind of food. He is a very picky eater. He does not like the taste of the Lite & weight Management sometimes and I have a hard time getting him to eat it but then I have a hard time getting him to eat anything.
Nutro is a quality and nutritional brand of dog food that I actually feel good about feeding to my dog. However, it tends to be a bit pricey. I initially bought it because it was on sale. I like the use of premium natural ingredients and that there's no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives added. The original formula also includes vitamins, minerals, and natural antioxidants to promote a healthy pooch. My dog seem to favor the taste of it more.
High Endurance brand was recommended for my dog based on his restriction of low fat, high protein food. I was able to find the right kind that suited him well, in terms of health and happiness. He was always excited to eat, no matter the time of day, and he never got sick or felt unhealthy after eating. The vet always praised my family and I for the health status of our dog. The food was relatively cheap for the amount of product I received. I believe it may be nice to have more extensive flavors/types of dog food available. I understand that there are a lot of options already available, but I think that the kinds could be better targeted to different ailments a dog might be suffering from.
My husband was selecting the dog food until I read the ingredient label one day. I pointed out that meat was not the first ingredient and the list included red dye and other unsavory ingredients. We immediately stopped serving that food and went online and discovered Nutro to be a healthier choice. The features that I like about Nutro original formula dog food are: all healthy ingredients without any food dyes or by-products. Meat is listed as the first ingredient and there are no fillers such as corn. Also I like that my dog really gets excited when it's dinner time more so than he does with other brands. However, would really appreciate if it was a bit more reasonable in price. We feed a lot of animals and even though we want to feed them healthy options we still must stick with a budget.
I like that Nutro Farm's Harvest Dog Food doesn't contain a lot of grain or corn and that it is made from natural ingredients that is healthy for my dog. She needs dog food that is extra healthy for her to keep her active in her old age. However the dog food actually gave my senior dog horrible gas and an upset stomach, so in that sense I disliked the food. As soon as I switched to another dry dog food, her problem went away. So there is something in the food that DID not agree with my senior dog.
The Nutro High Protein-Grain Free dog food gives my pets everything it needs and is safe for them to eat putting my mind at ease that they are getting everything they need in one bag of food and they love to eat it. It's a brand I feel good about. I know they won't refuse to eat it so I wouldn't feel like I was buying a bad product for them. It a healthy brand with no junk in it that will hurt my dogs in any way. So many of my friends buy it too because it is great brand to use.
I heard about Nutro's High Protein-Grain Free dog food from my vet and so I tried it not knowing a lot about it. I read the ingredients and was quite pleased. My dogs love it and I feel good feeding it to them. They have the best ingredients for dogs in their foods and it's worth paying a little more. A larger selection of product sizes would be nice and coupons would help. I'd like it to be a little cheaper lol. Also, maybe if it was sold in more stores. That would be more convenient than making a special trip to get it.
Nutro Dog Food has met my expectations. I love the fact that it's grain-free and good for my dogs. It comes in different sizes bags and my dogs like the taste of it. I like to know what is in my dog's food and the product has ingredients I can pronounce and understand. However, I find it to be a bit pricey for the size bags I get compared to other brands. I also wish it came in a much larger bag as I have 3 dogs.
Nutro Original has met my expectations. What I like about it is that it's meaty, smells good, and my dogs really love it. They never have a problem finishing their food when they get this. I might like to see a few more flavors for variety. My dogs get very picky sometimes and I like to have different kinds available.
Nutro Lite & Weight Management: This dog food provided and meet the requirements of both of my dogs. One of my dogs has a sensitive stomach and will vomit most everything up. This type of dog food does not appear to cause any stomach issues after consuming which cannot be said of most dog food brands. But I think the shapes should be a little smaller. Both of my dogs are little dogs (one weighing 5 lbs and the other weighing 9 lbs) which means they have a small mouth and the bigger pieces are harder for my dogs to eat. My dogs love the taste and eat every piece. Some dog foods are colored and there are certain colors that my dogs refuse to eat. Nutro has no different colored pieces that my dogs refuse to eat. If my dogs like the food then I like the food.
The Nutro dog food met my initial expectations to some extent. They had a nice price and a large mixture of meat and veggies for the dog so they had a lot to offer. I like how this bag had more fiber and I love the chicken fat, lamb, lamb meal, chick peas, split peas and rice that were in the bag. I also liked that it had a lot of protein and many flavors my dog would love. However I was expecting more protein and I did not get that. I liked most things as is but I would have preferred more meat and fewer veggies. My pet loves to eat and he is very greedy so I had to feed him two bowls of food as the veggies were not getting it for him.
I like that High Endurance is made with vegetables and all natural ingredients that are good for my dog and make me feel good about feeding this to my dog. It's high in protein and gives my dogs lots of energy. The only thing I dislike about it is the price. My dogs love it and so do I, it's a win-win. I received a sample of Nutro Dog Food and read the ingredients and saw how healthy it was compared to what I was already giving my dogs. It has definitely exceeded my expectations.
Nutro is recommended by my dog breeder and I have been very pleased with it. She recommended wheat free food and sent me home with a sample. I have been using it ever since. The original formula is a healthy recipe for dog. My dog loves it and I don't have a problem with him eating it and finishing his meal. I feel it is a premium dog food. However, I would improve the variety of flavors. The price is high and the brand can be hard to find at times. I wish I could purchase it online or at a grocery store.
Received a recommendation from a neighbor to try Farm's Harvest. I wanted a variety that uses real vegetables and meats and decided to buy the Farm Harvest variety. The dog food has been a great meal for my dogs. They truly enjoy the flavor and texture and offers healthy benefits to their diet. I like that it offers chicken and lamb varieties and that I can find it locally at a good price. I feel comfortable using the brand and have a lot of trust in their product. Although I would like to see a beef variety in the Farm Harvest product. Would like to see more vegetables used. Wish they could transfer this variety into a wet dog food and maybe offer a treat with these flavors.
