Go Grain Free

Merrick Grain-Free recipes are great for dogs with food sensitivities. They're made with high-quality protein and farm-fresh fruits and vegetables to provide a natural food formula rich in nutrients that support the overall health and well-being of your dog.

Merrick Classic

It Starts With Protein

Merrick Grain-Free starts with real and wholesome USDA-inspected deboned meat, poultry or fish as the first ingredient, meaning more wholesome protein with every meal, providing the amino acids necessary for building strong muscles and a healthy metabolism.

Fresh Ingredients Are In

The finest, freshest ingredients included in these flavorful blends are harvested from local ranchers and farmers for quality and sustainability assurance. And all grain-free recipes include no meat by-products or artificial preservatives, and absolutely no ingredients from China.

Benefits Abound

Omega-6 and 3 fatty acids support a beautiful, shiny coat, while significant levels of glucosamine and chondroitin help maintain joint health so your dog can run and play. As always, Merrick Grain-Free recipes are completely free of corn, wheat and soy.

  • Excellent Quality Dog Food!

    By on

    We have had both of our dogs on Merrick since they were puppies. We have a German Shepherd and an Australian Shepherd and Merrick has done nothing but wonders for them. My fiance and I are both certified in Pet Nutrition which led us to Merrick and we own a dog training facility. So, we such active dogs, we need a high quality food that would work for them. We highly recommend Merrick to all of our clients!

  • This product has wholesome ingredients

    By on

    After reading a lot lately about the wide range of ingredients in dog food I chose Merricks grain free chicken and sweet potato recipe. Happily my dog loves it and I feel good about the quality of the food I'm feeding him. It's a win win! It wasn't available at any of my local pet stores so I was thrilled to find it at Chewy.com. The service is always reliable.

  • his stool has improved!

    By on

    So I have always picked 5 star dog foods for my pup, but he gets bored easily. I tried Merrick after reading that it is a top brand and my pup took to it immediately and his stool is firmer and less than before! The only complaint I have is that the kibble is small, and I have a very large dog, so I can see that eating it is slightly more cumbersome for him, and there is definitely more mess involved, but that's ok...worth it.

  • Senior miniature poodle loves it!

    By on

    I researched the best dog food ingredients with less chemicals, & this came up a lot. I was feeding Pioneer naturals to my dog which he loves, but I like to give him variety. He ate this right away without hesitation. Chewy is also a great, fast shipping company to deal with.

  • Heath Fix

    By on

    Our beloved 100 pound pit bull has had two joint replacements. He's struggled to regain his stamina and range of motion following the second surgery. It was suggested that we change dog foods with the encouragement that we'd see his energy levels return before he finished the bag. This sounded like a grandiose promise, but we have watched this completely turn his health around. Bonus points for a beautiful shiny coat too. Highly recommend!

  • Dog begs to eat Merrrick dog food

    By on

    My dog is so excited when told time to eat and will do whatever she is told to do to be able to eat like sit, "shake hands" etc. Then she vacuums her dog food and chases any crumbs left in food bowl.

  • I have been using this for years

    By on

    I have 2 dachshunds & I want to have few bowel movements. Giving a grain free meal helps have regular movements. Their skin is perfect & their health is excellent. And they love it. I add a little Merrick canned chicken type food on top.

  • Dog likes it.

    By on

    My small dog enjoys this food. The chunks are small, which I like for her. She needs grain free so this is a good choice. It has a decent price and delivery is FAST. I will continue buying this for my dog since she likes it and it agrees with her.

  • changed over smoothly from puppy merrick to this adult merrick

    By on

    My puppy papillon mix is now one year old and has been loving the merrick puppy kibble. Also my senior 15 year old very healthy pom/chi mix has been eating the puppy merrick too! I just gave the senior gal a little less and feed them both twice a day. Well it was time for adult food now and both did very good on the puppy merrick without any excessive weight gain. Puppy is very active and ate more while my senior gal is very active for her age and loves and plays with the pup but does enjoy her rest and nap times. They both have done great on the Merrick. I mixed half puppy merrick and half adult and had no tummy upsets. Both love the new adult merrick.
