Yeah I learned the right way to deal with chronic issues .... My youngest cat will not get off the nutro kitten at nearly age four but the vet and I agree ( the vet prefers raw but nutro is a brand shell recommend to those that dont want to go the raw or cooked route)...lmao.. I would prefer no commercial food ever but there are far far worse foods out there;)

I understand... sometimes, we need to do what we need to do with some intractible pets... I struggled long and hard over my own kibble addict Cato, so I know how it could be.

Does anyone know of any of the Nutro Natural Choice for dogs that have had medical issues with their animals? My little 2 yo Rattie has had problems. Nutro has been contacted and sent samples of food but no answer after almost 2 months.

sharky:  I think it's time you read some of the links that cathy provided.  As much as you defend this product, I think you are dead wrong & plenty of other people will agree.  I do believe it's time you read what other pet parents have to say about this product you seem to think is so wonderful.

NO food is perfect and no food is right for all animals hense why we have 1000's to choose from....   I have READ most of the the articles and most cant be found to be food, most on the consumer site = senior dogs which amazingly have the HIGHEST issues do to celluar die off just like a human .. Do you know what is on most humans death certificates??..lol.. I have lots of issues and DONT blame FOOD or Medicines yet I have SCIENTIFIC proof of some of it being caused by medicines ..... Manufacturing is a BIG ISSUE in anything, YES the pet food industry NEEDS to be opened to us and have someone looking over it .. Obviously AFFCO is not neither is the USDA or the FDA with any degree of certainty ..lol .. on ave there is a BEEF recall for humans every six weeks Roll Eyes...
Being a INFORMED pet parent ... I quickly figured out the new soybean oil was causeing Gigi to itch again thus she eats a different food and moms homemade Wink .

   I am sorry but I am going to have to disagree. Food has EVERYTHING to do with a person or animals health. I also do not understand how a vet or anyone else can promote a raw diet and Nutro in the same breath. Huh

 Huh  I'm not following.  Most human death certificates say natural causes, I think.

Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.

I was going to say, "What the [edited]", but I figured I should use more restraint.   Tongue

How can Nutro be promoted alongside a raw diet? The answer is marketing. Sorry to say, but clever marketing strategies by big corporations have fooled tens of millions into buying dangerous products for children, ruined health from junk food, and given us sickened and deceased pets from so-called pet "food". The smartest and most educated among us are swayed by advertising,vets included. My five cats ate the above mentioned brand. Two went over the Bridge from it. Buying anything nowadays is like walking in a minefield. Pet food that used to be good a long time ago changed even before the recalls. Lots of consumer stuff that used to be ok, is now questionable. Marketing keeps the Country buying.
