Merrick Grain-Free Real Buffalo + Sweet Potato Recipe Dry Dog Food is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 216.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trustworthy Dog Food I've done extensive research to find both my dogs quality food that can be trusted...by companies that keep their promise to our pets...Merrick manufactures the dog food themselves utilizing nutritious ingredients and uphold the best standards in the market. Most brands use a "third party" and simply paste their name on the bag...I was buying Canidae and found out that despite what they say about "making the food themselves" they too contract some of their food to "big corporations"...the ingredients in their food caused my Golden Lab to get huge skin sores all over his body that the vet directly related to the food! It angers me tremendously when companies purposely persuade consumers under the vise that the product is "safe", knowing full well that they cannot stand behind what goes into the chow...my pets are my family and I won't stand for settling on something less than what they; deserve!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves this food In the beginning I was very hesitant about changing brands for my dog but after going through many different reviews I decided to settle with this particular brand and I am so glad that I did. With our previous dog food I noticed that there were some controversial ingredients that we're not so good for dogs after reading the reviews and the ingredients list that's in the Merrick Dog Food I started to really take notice that it really didn't have any except for one that I was particularly concerned about. So we made the switch to the Merrick Dog Food and I couldn't be happier with it and neither can my dog she absolutely cannot wait to eat this food compared to her old food where she would just kind of pick at it. I would definitely recommend this food and brand name the first ingredient on there is debone Buffalo and it really does show for my dog she has specific needs and she knows what those needs are normally I'd have to add me to her dog dish and with this I don't have to do that so I feel very confident that the mail she's getting is what is also labeled on the packaging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy dogs! We had fed Infinia grain free turkey and sweet potato for a couple years and both of our dogs loved it! However, about a year ago our giant guy started taking intense seizures and was diagnosed with epilepsy. Even with his medications causing him to be extremely hungry all the time, he started losing interest in his food, to the point he wouldn't eat for a couple days and the medication with no food would make him sick. I looked and researched for a couple months before finally settling on this food about 2 months ago. Immediately with the switch, our big guy went back to his normal bowl clearing self! I gave it a bit to see if the newness would wear off and if he would stop eating again. So far, so good, he's still eating like a champ! Our pit bull was initially a bit gassy with the switch, but that has gone away and they're both happy and full now! As always, Chewy has the best prices and customer service!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from stinky farts I just switched my dog to Merrick and chose this bag because of it's 1200 mg of glucosamine. I've noticed my dog is now having really stinky skunk farts. I hope its just her body adjusting. She is still transitioning with her original brand and I hope it will go away. But after this brand I'm going to try a different flavor with the same 1200 mg of glucosamine. My dog's joints do already seem to be doing better (She's been on a joint supplement for a while too and thought it needed some help)! So the brand is worth it, especially if the gas subsides.
