Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovemyteddybear Complete life changer for my dog!
I have a 16 month old Maltese/Poodle mix. For most of her life, she exhibited (what I now understand to be) food allergies. But when I first saw her licking her paw, scratching her neck, and scooting, I attributed those to different causes. Recently, she was getting hotspots, itchy skin, and scooting much more frequently. She also started having rashes all over her belly. I brought her to the vet who ran some skin tests. It turns out she was having food allergies this whole time and her persistent scratching allowed ringworms to get inside her skin, which induced even more scratching. I was so oblivious to it that I felt a lot of guilt for not knowing and letting it get worse. The vet strongly recommended I immediately put her on a venison diet because it's good for dogs with food allergies. I did some research on which is the best brand, and read the reviews here. I went and bought Nutro Natural Choice Venison and Potato dog food and also followed her medication regimen as directed. She took to that food so quickly, I was amazed! Within hours I saw changes in her stool. Within days her skin vastly improved. She no longer bites and scratches her paws or belly, she does not scoot anymore, and her stool is really firming up. I'm really thankful to Nutro for making this food and helping my dog so greatly. I highly recommend this food to any dog owner whose dog is having food allergies.

I have a Corgi / Pug mix, and a long haired mini Doxie. They both have allergies that show in the form of skin rashes. Since switching to this brand and specific type over six months ago, neither of them have exhibited allergies once. Their coats are beautiful! They prefer venison to lamb, but that's just my picky mutts!
I feel the price is a little easier on the wallet than the other big name brands that offer the same grain free options.

Our 12 year old lab suffered from bloat in 2010, he survived thanks to quick surgical intervention. I vowed to buy him the best dog food that I could afford, following that scary time. It actually was not this brand...but after being on the other brand a few months, he started to have gastric issues, after several doses of antibiotics, I picked up Nutro, by chance, and I am happy to say that we have a happy and healthy old guy, that has not suffered with any other problems since being on this food. Well worth it!

I have two Boston Terrier's and a Border Collie/Staffordshire Terrier mix...they all do excellent on this food! Shiny coats, healthy bodies, great teeth...no complaints here! One of our dogs is allergic to grain so this is a great, natural, healthy choice!

I'm very impressed with this product! I have a German Shepherd who has food allergies and is also on the picky side. Since, she is limited in the meat proteins she can have, I was happy to find a Venison formula she could tolerate. Not only am I happy with the ingredients and the fact that it's grain free but she also likes it as well. Her coat is very shiny and super soft, at her recent annual check-up at the Vet he was very impressed! I'm very pleased with this product and my girl loves it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Abu Grain Free Food
After years of fighting allergies and cooking for my Pugs finally I found a food that they like and is good for them, they still like their veggies but grain free food is the best, they also are allergic to lamb, poultry and Adam can eat the Salmon, Ethel is allergic to fish, her U.T.I's can speak for themselves.
Thank You, Nutro, you have made 2 very happy Pugs out of Adam and Ethel.
