Default Nutro dog food?

We're considering changing Sacher's food from Hills science plan for large breed puppies because it costs an **** of a lot and we have seen other specially formualated large breed puppy foods for a lot less than what we pay for Hills.
One of these is Nutro and we were recomended this by the pet shop owner ad it does sound good, but i was wondering if any of you had tried it because i'd not heard of it before. If we dont change to this it will be burns or James Wellbelove.

My two have eaten Nutro before and did really well on it- when I enquired it wasnt animal tested.

Jet went off dry food with a stomach problem and went onto chappie- willow continued. Only recently she has changed to burns, and autarky to try and eat up what Jet didnt like when he went off chappie 5 years later!
I probably will go back at the end of the current bags of food. Nature diet doent seem to agree with Jet at all so I am out on a limb with him AGAIN

I would recommend Nutro- has chicken +rice and lamb+rice options which I used to alternate when they get onto adult food- just a human foible-I am sure Willow would care two hoots DUSTBIN!!!!

Has both glucosamine and chondroitin from memory- but I may be wrong

We put Amber onto Nutro on friday, she had been on Beta puppy and pedigree puppy (both complete) but had a runny botty.. Since being on nutro her botty is loads better, she seems to have filled out and is eating it all.. She is currently on the puppy lamb & rice and will go onto the large breed puppy after this bag.. Lets hope we can stick on it, but after reading the info I really hope she does

We had Finley on Nutro since he was a puppy and he thrived on it. It was only when we got Elwood that we decided to change to BARF because Elwood always had a runny bot and wouldn't put on weight.

I would thoroughly recomend Nutro brand of dog foods , i feed it to my boys.Woody has been brought up on it right from weaning, his mother was fed on it too!! Scrumpy has been on it for the last five years, he is 12 so is on the senior & he is in fantastis shape for a old boy even if i say so myself! I work in a pet shop & we sell lots of it, well the customers love the look of my boys as they often come with me! If you read the list of ingredients you'll see it has a high content of meat in it, compared to alot of the cheaper brands on the market. that is the key to finding a good food look at the ingredient labels & see wot the foods actually contain in them!!!!!!

Sorry, I had one problem dog with Nutro.

I had my 4 dogs on it for 8 years. Harley was always sick. (Vomiting) It turns out it was the Nutro. I switched to Wellness.

The others had no problems, their coats were shiney and they seemed to do well.

I consider Nutro "better than typical store bought" but not the best.

Try these sites for comparing a few brands:
