Nutro Ultra Juicy Duck Entree Grain-Free Adult Filets in Gravy Dog Food Trays 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 Tapioca Starch, Dried Green Beans, and Dried Potatoes (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 1 other sketchy ingredient, Xanthan Gum. Many consider this food to be inconvenient, because it requires clean-up.

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