The Nutro Company has been the leader in natural pet food since 1926 – delivering proven natural nutrition tailored to your dog's unique needs. Our new formula addresses the changing dietary needs of your developing young adult dog. Feeding an adult formula at the level necessary to meet the nutritional needs of a young adult dog can deliver excess calories, which can lead to unwanted weight gain. In fact, nearly one-third of all dogs are either overweight or obese by age 3. This new formula delivers the optimal level of nutrients and calories through precise feeding. Our exclusive SMART STEP formula offers a balanced calorie and nutrient density needed by developing young adult dogs to deliver optimal nutrition, but without added calories that lead to early weight gain. The natural DHA in fish oil is essential for healthy growth and development of the brain and nervous system of developing young dogs. Patented levels of Linoleic Acid, Zinc and B Vitamins to GUARANTEE healthy skin and a soft, shiny coat. Whole Grains are nutrient-dense foods that nourish a healthy digestive system for proper nutrient absorption. Our 1st ingredient is great-tasting, U.S. farm-raised chicken - which delivers the amino acids necessary to build muscle and maintain a healthy metabolism.
These are the recommended feeding amounts based on ideal body condition for young adult dogs of various weights. Individual dogs' energy requirements may differ. Adjust the amount fed to obtain or maintain your dog's optimum weight. If feeding Nutro Natural Choice Dog Food for the first time, we suggest you blend increasing amounts of Natural Choice Young Adult Chicken, Whole Brown Rice & Oatmeal Formula Dog Food with your old food for 6 days. Keep fresh drinking water available at all times, provide plenty of exercise and see your veterinarian regularly. Serve dry or lightly moistened. To help maintain freshness, we recommend sealing the bag tightly and storing in a cool, dry location
