My 2 Dachshunds are 11 years old. They have eaten the Nutro Max Chicken Meal and Rice Puppy Dry Dog Food since they were puppies. I have bought everything from the most expensive brands to the most healthy brands and they refuse to eat it. They won't eat until I get their Puppy food. I know that you are thinking that they are in fair to poor health at this point. 11 years old and going strong. My Vet at Banfield Hospital can't believe their age and that they are in perfect health. No weight or back issues. Regular exercise, check-ups and yearly dental cleanings are a contributing factor as well.

I can't really give that great of a rating because my puppy hasn't gotten use to it yet. I have to wean him off of his old food and onto new. I am thinking about trying it to see if he would like it. Now that's clearly a joke, however, my brother does that for all of his pet's food. Personally, I love the fact that it comes in a resealable bag. I had it on the floor with my puppy and he could not open it - when he pushed it over, all of the food stayed in the bag! I have to incorporate it slowly into his food. I know they suggest 75% old food and 25% new, but I was going to start off by giving him this food as treats then slowly incorporating it into his food. I think he would be more receptive of it and hopefully not make his stomach hurt! I do love that the first ingredients are chicken! I also love that the sample bag is big enough to try incorporating it into his old food for at least 2 weeks depending on how big your dog is and how much he or she eats.

Nutro max puppy food


from Okeechobee, FL

My Willie loved it. He's finicky when trying new foods, but he really enjoyed it. He had energy and I'm glad puppy Max had real ingredients not bone meal or other processed ingredients. I would recommend it to others who want to give their four legged friends the best!!


Nutro MAX Puppy Recipe


from Kansas City, KS

I think the Nutro MAX Puppy Recipe is a great choice for growing dogs! I got a free 4-lb sample bag from to try. My pup Bailey is just under a year old, and eats CONSTANTLY. She also had terrible, never-ending dog farts... that is, she did, until we tried this dog food. Nutro MAX Puppy Recipe has: - NO chicken by-product meal - NO corn, wheat, or soy protein - NO added artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives I think that by using a higher-quality dog food, my puppy was actually eating less. Her fartiness dramatically reduced... Whew!.. She seemed to be processing the food much better than when she was on the store brand we had been using. My only criticism is that the pieces seem to be a bit large for a new puppy. My dog is 65 lbs, so this was not an issue, but I think for a smaller breed, a smaller chunk would be better. Overall, I love this dog food (as does Bailey) and we will continue to use it in the future.

Nutro Max Puppy Food


from Westport, WA

I was so excited to get the ample size bag of dog food for my puppy to try. I was confident he would like it because he'll eat most anything. And Neutro is a very good expensive brand of pet food. I followed the feeding instructions. Puppy ate a bit and then it just sat there in the bowl. He didn't like it at all. I stayed with it and looked in the bowl a few days later and he'd picked out the pieces of his old food, leaving behind the Neutro in the bowl. I kept to the feeding instructions, mixing in the correct amounts of new food to old food ratio. Nope, he doesn't like it. I really wanted to give this food a good review but I just can't.


Nutro Max is loved


from Grand Prairie, TX

I didn't think my girl roxie would like it because she is a picky eater. The thing I like was that was all natural. The first time I gave it to her I had mixed with her food and she ate with no problems. She actually loves it so I will have to add that to her food.


Nutro Max- Puppy food


from Weatherford, TX

I had been looking for a new food for my senior dog. And I found it with Nutro Max puppy food. After several months of my dog only taking a few bites at each meal I decided to try mixing in a bit of water. He has bad teeth and every food was hard for him to eat except soft food but he didnt like the smell of that. But with Nutro Max his tail starts wagging as soon as he sees me getting it out of the bag and he finishes every bite at each meal. I now have one happy dog that just loves this food and I know he is getting quality food with not a lot of filler, just the good stuff and extra vitamins. My puppy that i originally got this for just loves it too. no upset stomach because it digest very well without all the added ingredients in other foods. so we are all happy.


My puppy loved it to the MAX


from Delmar, MD

I have been looking to switch my puppies food to something all natural, so when the opportunity to try NUTRO MAX Puppy Food arrived I was very excited ! It was comforting to see on the label that it is made with farm raised chickens and there is no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. It was also nice to see that NUTRO MAX Puppy Food is made specifically for puppies 1 to 12 months. Miles is 6 months old and has been picky when trying a few other brands. Not NUTRO MAX !! She loved it !! I priced NUTRO MAX Puppy Food at a local big pet store and was shocked that it is was actually very affordable. We have already made the switch to NUTRO MAX Puppy Food!


my buzz campaign NUTRO MAX


from Palm Coast, FL

I received NUTRO MAX AND AFTER contacting our vet we began to slowly introduce Nutro Max puppy food to our puppys diet. The pellets are ROCK hard and even after adding water they remained the same way. I was advised to add hot water and olive oil to help softened them. How they can be it also gave our puppy very bad gas along with several days of diarrhea. I don't think the trauma of changing his diet helped with the situation. But he seems to enjoy the taste and is eating it better after its softened.


Pros and Cons


from Crossville, TN

I found myself strangely excited to give this to my dog after reading the ingredient list. As I was mixing it with my old dog food (a wet homemade food) I found no problems. However after it was 100% dry food I couldn't get my dog to eat it unless I softened it up. I wish I had known ahead of time though for puppies it does not seem to work well for small breeds. If they made an affordable wet food I would not hesitate to try it. Overall it seems to be a great product. P.S. My dogs fur seemed to get shiny and soft.


My doggies loved


from Tazewell, VA

My puppy loved this food. She was so funny. When ever she really likes a food she rolls in it. She rolled so much. I will def. purchase this food for her.
