Real Protein & Classic Grains

Merrick's Classic recipes are made with high-quality protein, whole grains, vegetables and fruits to provide a natural dog food formula rich in nutrients to support the overall health of your dog. They start with real and wholesome USDA-inspected deboned meat, poultry or fish as the first ingredient with amino acids necessary for building muscle and a healthy metabolism.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 58 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good food My dogs are happy on this food. I switched them from grain free Merrick to Classic Merrick this winter to help put a little fat on them (grains=carbs= weight gain). They do enjoy it so I will include it in our food rotation. They're all happy and healthy and enjoy their food. I always recommend Merrick since I trust their family owned company to make a quality product. February 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Food I have used this dog food for over a year. I have a 2 year old Boxer and 13 year old Shar pei. And I now have a young boxer on it too. Yup, 3 dogs that go through a lot of food. My old man the Shar pei is doing wonderful on the Classic Beef, he's very spry, healthy and looks a lot younger than he should. FYI, Shar pei's live to 10, this dog food has a hand in keeping him with us longer. The 2 yr old boxer was very allergic when young (hives, digestive issues, etc) and I had to switch food brands many times to get one that agreed with him. Merrick Classic Beef recipe did the trick and he has been healthy with no allergy issues for over a year and he has the most gorgeous silky coat. I highly recommend this product as a high-end dog food that doesn't hurt your wallet. December 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great food Both of my babies did great on this food.You can especially tell this from seeing their skin and coat.They are so soft and shiny. For those interested,the kibble size is on the small side,so good for little mouths,but it is not so small that a larger size dog would have problems with it.The smell is rich and my dogs apparently were enticed,because they would sniff at the bag non stop.As for the bag,it is easy to roll down and clip shut.That kind of thing matters to me,so I wanted to put it out there.Can't wait to try their other flavors in my rotation. I December 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Foxy howls for her food! My dog Foxy couldn't be more thrilled with her new food! I hardly had it out of the box and she was wagging and sniffing delightedly! Although she had already eaten her supper that first day, I couldn't resist letting her try her new food. She loved it! She raised her head and howled!!! Howling is usually reserved for Christmas morning or table scraps! Foxy doesn't need table scraps anymore to get her interested in her food. Now we're eager to try some Merrick dog treats!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Top Quality Made in the USA Quality ingredients, fresh scent my dog's LOVE it. I have been looking for a quality food made by the company that sells it NOT outsourced. I was using Acana but wanted to go potato free. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED August 13, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Still adjusting My dogs are seniors and we were using Merrick whole earth farms senior formula. But the company discontinued it and has a classic senior formula sold only in 5 lb. bags. This isn't economical for me. So I tried their "new" classic adult formulas. The dogs don't like it as much as the senior. I've tried chicken, and now beef. They leave it in the bowl and only eat if they're quite hungry. I don't know why Merrick has done this but it looks like I may be looking for another brand of food. With respect for our senior dogs. September 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Minnie's favorite Been using the Merrill foods for our Boston terrier for years. She's a very healthy seven years old, with a marvelous coat. Love this and quick delivery, too... January 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Praying this works!! Alex has had diarrhea since I got him from the animal shelter he was 6 weeks old. Will 1 year of age in August. I have tried everything. Orijen, Taste of Wild, Blue Buffalo Basic. Yogurt, pumpkin, probiotic, fiber. I took at least a month if not 2 before I tried something else. I am slowing changing from Blue Buffalo Basic to Merrick. Also have him on Nutramax Bactaquin Digestive Health, Vetoquinol AllerG-3 and Brewers Yeast. This is the best I have seen his stools. Still a little soft but they are formed, where as before it was just a pile of loose stool. June 14, 2014
