    Nutro customer service is more of a customer dis-service. Use a competitors brand. Nutro is just out to make a buck, not treat their customers with the respect they deserve…

    I want to point out that I do “not” like the Diamond Brand product and so it must be one of these two. The last 3 are here because they seem to go on sale quite often.

    What are your thoughts on Nutro – Ultra Holistic Superfood dog food? Is it worth feeding your pets this brand or should I stick with RAW (but it’s very expensive and I can’t afford in any longer)?


  4. Jess says:

    WOW, I have to admit I am pleasantly surprised/shocked to see this ingredient list. They are trying to upgrade their product which I applaud them for doing so. Some call Dried Plain Beet Pulp a filler, but it serves a purpose with it’s high fiber level which helps keeps a dogs poo firm. It is rice/grain heavy but does contain some meat. I do not like seeing 3 types of oil. Dried Pumpkin and Tomato Pomace are both again, stool hardeners which makes me whats going on. Now, Menadione Sodium Bisulfite complex is totally bad and this would keep me from feeding this dog food. Otherwise this company is taking a step in the right direction. I would recommend you keep your dog on his raw diet. I understand money can become and issue, but maybe a little kibble with some raw might help in the $ area. I feed Orijen and TOTW then add fresh meat as much as I can.

    I had my dogs on Pedigree which they didn’t do good on. They pooed a lot on it and had horrible gas. I then switced to Nutro Max and there coats got really shiney, they had less poo, and had no gas. I switched to Merrick because of dog food nazi’s trying to make me feel guilty over feeding Nutro. My dogs had horrible gas on Merrick and pooped a lot more, so I’ve switched back to Nutro Max its a great product and my dogs lve the tasteof it.

  6. Bob says:

    I’ve been feeding Nutro Lamb & Rice to my labs for many years. They are very healthy and get many compliments on their coats.

  7. Meghan says:

    A few years ago I was feeding both my dog Nutro and they get EXTREMELY sick from it. It took months and months before they recovered. I have been feeding them Chicken Soup since then, with NO complaints and NO problems. DO NOT BUY NUTRO!

  8. Hurricane says:

    So, Meghan from Feb. 5th: Care to add more? You don’t explain anything about your dogs (past health issues, anything at all) yet are so firm in telling others not to buy it. I switched a month ago and my own lab-mix couldn’t be happierm, look better, and have more spring in her step.

  9. Candi says:

    I think what we’re forgetting is that every dog is different – just like every person is different and we all have differing GI issues and nutritional requirements. Nutro is a fine food, if your dog does well on it, that’s great! I fed Nutro Lamb and Rice to my son’s rottie for years and she did well! My own rottie had severe food allergies, and she could not have any type of Nutro. She did ok on Taste of the Wild, but I ended up having to cook her food myself. I often reccommend Nutro when folks are looking to get away from stuff like Purina and Dad’s.

    My longhaired doxies eat Nutromax Small Bites, Lamb and Rice formula..they has previously been eating Royal Canine..we had a real issue with having flakey skin and one was a bit “itchy”..switched over to give this a try and will never look back. They are jet black and the least little flaking will would be challenged to find even one flake on either of them..their coats and skin are absolutely gorgeous and they both have radiant health. Perhaps there is no perfect formula for all dogs, but this seems to be right for my girls, and I am happy with the standards at their plant in TN.

  11. Johninupstate says:

    Many people are simply brand loyalists and do not really read about pet foods and ingridients or even where or who is making their pet foods. I researched nutro and found they make their own in their facilities. All the grain and other sources in question are fine even great for a pts health. I went from a Pedigree to Max after searching out the ingridients and found it to work well for one of my dogs but not so good for my other who has food sensitivities. So i went to natural choice with an limited ingridiant diet and it works for both. the big names dont even make their own food… diamond makes many top brands and we see what happened there. even blue buffalo is made by diamond. every one claims a good dog food and they are right! no company goes out to make a bad dog food its a good better best thing. all i can say is nutro is the best for my dogs. they are constantly making their foods better while others stay with their way becasue it is cheaper. nutro spends the money to improve to gain top nutrition for pets. they do make a few brands for every consumer and pets needs. they do not take chances with pets health and put the pet first not you!
