Rated 5 out of 5 by from noticable difference in dog's fur & pep My chihuahua is 16 and has congestive heart failure, due to this we can not get her teeth fixed at the vet. It is very hard for her to eat and I was having to cook her food for her and puree it... well, her fur began to get dull. So, I started smashing up the natural choice senior dry dog food in a ziplock bag with a hammer and add a bit of water and she LOVES to eat that! She does not prefer the wet food in the can but when I do this with the dry food she eats it up every time! Her fur has returned to its shiny and healthier state and she seems a lot more peppy now too! Hope this helps other's who have senior dogs with teeth problems. THANKS NUTRO!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is amazing [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My 8 year old black lab developed a series of major ear infections and skin problems. He was constantly licking and biting at his legs and feet. He also had scratched the majority of this hair off the rest of his body. A coworker recommended the nutro brand to me and I did my research and decided on the natural choice senior. Almost right away we noticed a difference in this coat and his ability to move. We have been using this product for over a year now and our dog has not had any skin or ear problems since. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO ANYONE WHO HAS A SENIOR DOG OR A SENIOR DOG WITH SKIN PROBLEMS. WORKS FANTASTIC!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Leash on Life [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We adopted Deogee 4 months ago when the rescue he was living in down in Tijuana Mexico was closing down and the poor 14 year old poodle/terrier mix was left with no place to go. He had a horrible ear infection and almost no hair at all on his chest! We immediately put him on Nutro Natural Choice for Senior dogs and hoped for the best. 4 Months later his hair is growing back and this senior dog has plenty of spring in his step! Even better his ear infections have completely stopped. The vet recently told us we should expect to have Deogee in our lives for a few more years and we could not be happier about it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OUTSTANDING CHOICE FOR YOUR SENIOR DOG ! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My Chocolate Lab, BUCA, has been a Nutro fan since we adopted him at 22 months. At 13 years old ( October 2010 ) he has been on Nutro Senior for a number of years now and continues to do remarkably well. The hips are starting to slow him down but he is all over me to feed him at 7:00 A.M. & 5:00 P.M. and his appetite is excellent. The only sign of gray hair is under his muzzle, I have had a full head of silver many years before BUCA even started. He is my best buddy and I tell him every day that he has to stay healthy to take of " GRAMPY". Wouldn't feed him any other dog food on the market!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Older dogs need glucosomine for their bones [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My dog is 10 years old and we started giving her Natural choice for senior dogs about 2 years ago. She loves the flavor and we know she need the extra protein and glucosomine for her aging bones just like older humans benefit from some glucosomine in their diets. My dog has a little trouble getting to a standing position when she is lying down but as soon as she's outside she's like a puppy again. Full of energy and running around enjoying the snow in winter and an energized walk through the woods in the summer. Thanks for thinking about my pet's needs as she grows older..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NO....emergency vet bills....what's that cost.... I read the research on pet foods years ago. You couldn't pay me to change back .My family has always had pets. i have small dogs now since i live in the city. I just believe the best proof of a good diet is the health of your pet.My last toy dog was 16 yrs.same as my last cat that i learned about Nutro with. My new cat is 14 3/4,my dog is almost 9 yrs. Other than spaying they only go for their vaccinations. And from a long past of pets i know that you cannot say that from" by products"diets,plus i always had at least one emergency bill each year.My pets are both healthy and happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miraculous When I adopted my Rat Terrier, he was 8 years old. His former owner pointed out his yellowed teeth and shared that he was prone to skin rashes. I brought him home and my boyfriend immediately changed his food to Nutro because that's what HIS Rat Terrier ate and she is a beautiful animal. That was 4 years ago and my Buddy looks younger and healthier than the day we met. You can almost see your reflection in the black parts of his coat. No redness on his belly. No scratching. His teeth look whiter. The pair of Rat Terriers turn heads and it's unbelievable that they're senior citizens at 10 and 12. Never anything but Nutro.
