Default Nutro??

Does anybody use Nutro? I went to PetsMart looking for Canidae, which PetsMart doesn't carry, and this wonderful lady showed me the Nutro brand. She explained the ingredients, and their purpose, to me and everything. Nutro sounds like a really good food, so I bought a bag of Nutro Natural Choice Large Breed Puppy, and a bag of Nutro Natural Choice Senior (Shelby's 11).

She also gave me some samples of Nutro Max Puppy, and when I got home, I opened one of the bags, and was using the food as treats, to see if they liked it, and even my cats were going nuts for the stuff !! I couldn't believe it....cats are sooo picky. All three of the dogs loved it, too. And, I couldn't believe the price! It wasn't much more than Puppy Chow, or Kibbles 'n' Bits: one bag was 15.99 and the other was 19.99.

I love the fact that there are no by products in Nutro foods. What do you guys think of Nutro foods? I've heard they're wonderful, so I'm hoping I made a good choice for my furbabies

Thanks! I don't know though...reading the label, Nutro sounds pretty darn good. I'm going to see how my dogs do on it, and then, when I run out, I may switch to Canidae.

nutro isn't a great food. most of the varieties barely contain 30% meat, the rest even less. that alone is one compelling argumant against feeding it. there are many others, if you want to learn more, click on my signature image and start reading.

LOL Anything is better than the Puppy chow and Kibbles 'n' bits they were eating. Since I am so tired right now, and don't want to read anything more, would you reccomend Canidae? Thanks, Mordy. You're so much help (considering I know squat about dog food)!

yes, canidae is a good brand. it's made from good quality ingredients and also not very expensive. in my area, it's actually mostly less expensive than the nutro natural choice line. interesting, isn't it?

That is interesting...I wonder why it isn't through the roof? When I run out of Nutro, I'll get some Canidae, from the pet store (which doesn't sell puppies, so I'll buy from them). Thanks Mordy.

Good girl, Purr. Nutro does a remarkable job of packaging and "spinning" their product. They should spend that money on developing a good product.
