Nutro Max Large Breed Puppy Natural Chicken Meal & Rice Recipe 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 18 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 3 anti-nutrients including Peas, Dehydrated Alfalfa Meal, and Chickpeas (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 2 other sketchy ingredients, including Brewers Rice 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.
