Nutro Natural Choice Dog Food Reviews in 2023

A few weeks ago I received an expedient sample of Nutro Natural Choice Chicken Meal Rice & Oatmeal in the mail. I was intrigued by the information Nutro listed about this product, and was curious if our fussy eating Silky Terrier would eat it. Check here for Nutro Natural Choice Dog Food Reviews in 2023

Taste Test

My Silky Terrier is the fussiest eater I have ever seen! Although my husband has made the situation worse by catering to her pinnicky eating, it’s been a long search to derive any dry or canned dog foods that she atcually likes. Oh, she’ll eat most foods if she gets hungry enough, she’ll even go on a two day hunger strike, but we finally found one brand of dry dog food that she enjoys eating. Nutro Natural Choice.

When I got the package in the mail, I opened it up and fed her some. I fully expected her to turn her nose up at it, but she ate it and wanted more. She ended up eating 1/3 of the bag!

Because this sold exclusively at pet food stores, it is harder to pick up. Luckily we have a store that carries it in our town. The product comes in three sizes: 5, 20 and 40 pounds. I was told by the store manager that the 40 pound bags are so popular they can hardly preserve them in stock. It seems the product is so high in protein that the local dog mushers were all buying it for their dog teams. Sled dogs are a dog mushers bread and butter, and I was impressed that so many of them were feeding their dogs Nutro. That told me a LOT.

My Thoughts

This is the dog food we will be buying from now on. Our Silky tends to have a sensitive stomach, but she tolerates Nutro Natural Choice so much better than any other brands we have purchased. We have had to take her to the vet because she was so ill with stomach problems. The vet said to put her on a diet of hamburger and rice, that rice was easy to tolerate. This dog food has a lot of rice. Our Silky also has a luxating patella, and occasionally has harm in her knee joint, so I savor the fact that Nutro also added glucosamine and chondroitin to their formula.

We give this to our Silky in two ways, dry and with Nutro canned dog food mixed in. She doesn’t turn her nose up at her dinner any longer! I feel so good that I am giving her a meal that I know is healthy, does not hold any inappropriate animal by-products, and equally as important, a meal that she enjoys eating. I highly recommend Nutro Natural Choice.

We pay around $8 for a 5 pound bag, so this is a bit more expensive, but we feel it is worth it.
