Nutro Ultra Senior 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 24 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 3 anti-nutrients including Potato Starch, Dried Peas, and Dehydrated Alfalfa Meal (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 9 other sketchy ingredients, including Xanthan Gum and Beta Carotene Color. 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.
