Nutro Adult Hearty Stews Healthy Chicken & Rice Stew Chunks In Gravy Canned Dog Food is hot extruded (which means it's processed under extreme heat and pressure) and made with feed grade ingredients, which are unfit for human consumption. It contains 20 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 1 anti-nutrient, Potato Starch (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 4 other sketchy ingredients, including Natural Flavors and Xanthan Gum. Many consider this food to be inconvenient, because it requires clean-up.

Warning In June 2019, the FDA implicated Nutro's dog food in at least 10 cases of Dilated Cardiomyopathy (or DCM), a potentially fatal heart condition.
