Nutro Max Weight Control 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.

Nutro Max Weight Control Dog Food Dog Food First Five Ingredients:

  1. Wheat Flour
  2. Ground Rice
  3. Rice Bran
  4. Chicken Meal
  5. Ground Whole Wheat

Wheat flour is the first ingredient. Wheat is thought to be the number one cause in allergies among dogs.

Ground Rice is the second ingredient and is a decent quality grain. A dog’s diet needs to be based off of meat and consist mostly of meat and not rice.

Rice Bran is the third ingredient is a grain and filler. This ingredient offers no nutritional value to the dog food.

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

    FYI… I’m looking at a can of “Nutro Max Weight Control” right now.

    First FIVE ingredients here are completely INCORRECT !!

    Let me read straight off the can:

    First five: Chicken Broth, Chicken, Cod, Beef Liver, Rice Bran.

    “WHEAT FLOUR” ISN’T EVEN IN THE LIST OF INGREDIENTS.
    Don’t be deterred by this food.
    It’s not nearly as bad as the original review says.

    This review is for the dry food which is indeed correct, not the canned version.
