Nutro Max Grain-Free Mini Chunk Adult Recipe with Farm-Raised Chicken Dry 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 19 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 5 anti-nutrients including Dried Potatoes, Peas, and Chickpeas (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 2 other sketchy ingredients, including Dried Plain Beet Pulp and Natural Flavor.

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