If you have been shopping for Nutro Natural Choice during the past couple of months, you may have noticed that Nutro has changed its packaging. The new packaging features an updated design and is certified by Sustainable Forestry Initiative.
Not only has Nutro revamped their packaging, they have also improved their already pawsome formulas! The New Nutro Natural Choice dog food is scientifically formulated and combines natural ingredients with a focus on nutrition. I hear they taste even yummier because Nutro increased the amount of real meat and whole grains.
"The new formulations also have at least three times the fiber from whole grains," said Dr. Preston Buff (Chief Natural Nutrition Officer for The Nutro Company). "In general, whole grains are less processed, as they are not broken down into their components like bran, starch and gluten."
I just happen to have a bag of the original formula Small Breed Adult, so naturally Mom had to compare the ingredients to the new one. BOL!! I got a list of the new formula's ingredients from the Nutro website. I am happy to say Chicken is the first ingredient on both lists.
The most obvious difference to Mom involves the grains.
The new formula has Whole Brown Rice, Brewer's Rice, and Whole Grain Oatmeal.
The original formula had Whole Brown Rice, Ground Rice, Rice Bran, and Oatmeal.
The other new changes Mom could see were in the supplements (vitamins & minerals). The new formula has increased essential nutrients to support a variety of nutritional needs.
This excerpt is from the press release.As NUTRO® NATURAL CHOICE® dog food formulas are all new, they may introduce a change to a dog's diet to which their digestive system may be sensitive. To help dogs become familiar with the new formulas, The Nutro Company suggests blending increasing amounts of the new formula with one's current food for six days to allow the digestive system to adjust to the change. This transition will allow dogs to begin enjoying the great taste and benefits of new and improved NUTRO® NATURAL CHOICE® dog food.

Pawsonally, I will be excited to finish my current supply of Nutro and get the new formula!
Have any of you tried the new formula? Please tell me what you think! Are there any unanswered questions you have about the new formula?
