Nutro Max Large Breed Adult Dog Food Review

As with all dog food recipes the first thing we are going to look at are the first five ingredients. The first five ingredients are a good indication of the quality of the dog food. When looking at the first five ingredients you want to make sure there is plenty of meat and grains are minimal.

[tab:First Five Ingredients:]

Nutro Max Large Breed Adult Dog Food First Five Ingredients:

  1. Beef Meal
  2. Ground Rice
  3. Ground Whole Wheat
  4. Corn Gluten Meal
  5. Wheat Flour

Beef Meal is the first ingredient and is a named meat ingredient. Meat is a good source of protein and is essential to a dog’s diet.

Ground Rice is the second ingredient and is a decent quality grain. This grain hasn’t been linked to as many cases of allergies unlike some other grains.

Ground Whole Wheat is the third ingredient. Wheat is thought to be the number one cause of allergies in dogs. A dog’s diet shouldn’t consist of many grains.

Corn Gluten Meal is the fourth ingredient. Corn provides your dogs with no nutritional value. Dog’s digestive systems have a hard time digesting this ingredient. If you feed your dog a corn kernel, you will get a corn kernel out. Corn in excess has also been linked to many cases of dog allergies.

    I used to feed my boxer this. Then all the recalls started happening. That really made me aware of where dog foods are made, etc. Not to mention all the bad,allergy producing ingredients in it. She had been neglected when she was a puppy and had trouble putting on muscle mass & weight in general due to not tending to eat all her food but nibbling on it through the day and her high activity level. I decided to switch her to Evo Red Meat and the improvements in her were amazing! She gained so much muscle mass & seemed to enjoy the food even more. Eventually had to switch from that to something a little less expensive and easier to find locally but still made sure it was of good quality without all the allergens in it. Lost her a few months ago to a brain tumor. But, in the end, she had gone from not being able to get her even up to fifty pounds to over sixtythree pounds. Solid muscle.
