  • I gotta say... #longreview

    I've gone through so many different brands since I got my first dog 3 years ago. Online research only gave me a rough list of things to look out for, but eventually led me to more questions than answers. So, each time I tried a new brand or flavor, my grey gave me the answers I need: Is he throwing up? Bloody stool? Throw it out. Is he straight up just not interested? Finnish off the bag, and try something else. My greyhound never barks, unless he's 'truly' excited about something; ie, at the park, trying to instigate stuff lol. But when I started feeding him Merrick chicken or beef formula, he genuinely gets exited for each and every meal.

Point: try all the brands that are recommended to you, but pay attention to your dog. If you stumbled upon a brand or formula that gets your dog excited and healthy, then stick to that. Every dog's different, but I personally recommend Merrick. Try it. And see what your dog thinks about it. … more

  • Did not work for my dogs

    By on

    I tried this bag after I could no longer get Fromm and Acana from Chewy. I also ordered a bag of their rabbit recipe. After two weeks of the dogs eating this they were all 4 throwing it up and refusing to eat it unless I topped it with forte flora. They would then eat the food and after a couple of hours throw it up with foam and the kibble would still be formed but, swelled up and softer. I used the rest of the bag over half of it to mix with my larger outside dogs dry food and they didn't seem to have an issue other than a looser stool. I then began the rabbit formula. Same story on the tummy issues began almost immediately.

  • Owner is happy, dog is finicky

    By on

    The shipping of the product was great as usual. When I opened the bag, I was very happy to find a zipper closure. This was the first time I have seen a velcro closure on a food item. As an owner, the shipment was perfect. On to the dog, who is thirteen and getting pretty picky. This is the first time he's tried this brand. Unfortunately, he's not taking to it very well and leaving food behind even through to his next meal. I'm not sure if it's just a change of life for him, where he's just slowing down, or if he doesn't like the food. Perhaps it's because it doesn't taste as good as his treats. He seems to be sniffing around our people food more than he does his own, no matter the brand or The shipping of the product was great as usual.

  • Incredible!

    By on

    My dogs have been eating this for a while and love it. I thought I would try ordering it with auto delivery as it is more cost efficient than what I was paying in the store. My order came very quickly! And, I swear the food smells fresher and looks better than what I used to buy in the store. Dogs get very excited to smell the box too!

  • Better then Blue....

    By on

    My 9 year old and 9 month pup love this food. It's the third time I've ordered it and they are always eager to eat. I had been feeding my cats and dogs Blue for a few years but one of my cats always had terrible "cow pies" no matter what recipe I used. My pup started to refuse eating it and when she did it came right back up. After switching to Merrick they are all happy campers and no issues at all.

  • Flavor not for my dogs

    By on Top 100 Contributor

    Recently switched to Merrick, since Chewy will no longer be carrying Acana (also because of the new formula that my dogs couldn't care for) they've been eating the beef and duck recipe for 2 months and they love it. Since I had a 50% off coupon and they loved the other Merrick flavors so far I went ahead and order the 25lb of the chicken flavor. I received it Saturday and immediately tried to feed them and they haven't touched it. I'm sure this is a great product because they love the other flavors I bought them from this brand. But again today I tried feeding them this flavor and they just sniff, but don't touch it. I had to give them some of the beef.

  • loved by a picky eater

    By on

    my dog is a picky eater- she doesn't just gobble up her dry food like many dogs and will stop eating even if there's still food in the bowl. however, since trying out this food she finished the food everytime and its nice knowing shes getting the amount of food she needs and the nutrients she requires and I don't have to worry that she's not eating enough. love that its grain free as well

  • Packaging Issue

    By on

    I have used Merrick before and the food is perfectly good. When I lifted the bag of food out of the box it split open and spilled all over the place. Never had an issue with Chewy or Merrick before so hopefully it was a one off.

  • Good For Tummies

    By on

    My dog loves this product and even though they make a beef version the chicken version is better on her stomach but every once in awhile I mix both. She has lost over 25 lb in a slow and natural way. I recommend this product

  • Highly Recommended

    By on

    My vet put me onto this brand of dog food and I am so pleased he did. My dog loves it and it is filled only with natural ingredients. I have tried the other varieties but my dog seems to prefer the chicken the best.
