Nutro Small Breed Adult Weight Management Chicken 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 5 anti-nutrients including Lentils, Pea Protein, and Split Peas (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 3 other sketchy ingredients, including Dried Plain Beet Pulp and Natural Flavor.

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.
