  • My senior dog loves this puppy food

    By on

    I rescued a senior yorkie who was skin and bones. He had every tooth removed and is an extremely picky eater. Most food he walks away from. Someone recommended Merrick puppy food as a high calorie alternative and he LOVES it! I even see him filling out a bit. He was on death's door before I started giving this to him. I am SO grateful to this company and highly recommend you give it a try!

  • Picky puppy loves it!

    We've struggled with finding something that our boxer lab will eat. We mix a tablespoon of this along with Merrick Grain-Free Puppy Recipe Dry Dog Food and he eats it and i feel really good about what we are feeding him.

  • Perfect for our growing pup!

    By on

    To the reviewers complaining about price, you get what you pay for... Love that this stuff keeps my growing Aussie full and happy. You don't have to double up like you would with adult formulated food. Ever since we've started feeding her this and Stella and Chewy's Nuggets, she isn't as interested in her dry kibble (Wellness CORE) but who can blame her... We alternate between the different flavors of Merrick and there hasn't been one she isn't overeager to eat!

  • 10 week old GSD loves this stuff

    By on

    My German Shepherd really enjoys Merrick puppy plate. Due to having Megaesophagus, I had to take him off the Merrick dry puppy food and use the canned stuff. Costs more but he's able to keep this down after we smash it up for him. He's slowly starting to put on weight too.

  • Good quality !

    By on

    We use a few scopes to add to our puppy's dry food and she loves it. Seems to be better quality than the others we've tried, real chunks of veggies and meat mixed in.

  • Great product

    By on

    I love all the Merrick products. They are a bit pricey however and with 8 pups and three adult dogs it's expensive Also I had hoped that they had a puppy pack to give to new owners. I could not fine one that would be helpful.

  • Other quality wet foods are cheaper

    By on

    My 2 large breed 4 month old puppies, (Aussie and GSD) are surprisingly picky. I ordered this Merrick brand even though it costs $10 more per case than other quality brands, (Chicken Soup of the soul, Science Diet, Nutro). My 2 puppies ate it okay, but the cost is too rich for my blood.

  • My puppy loves this food

    By on

    My puppy eats the Merricks dry food (chicken and sweet potato) and she loves it. I started mixing her dry food with some of the puppy plate and she licks the bowl clean every time. You can see the chunks of meat and vegetable in the can. My girl was really picky but she loves this Merricks brand.
