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.

  • Good for Unenthusiastic Eater

    By on

    My dog is not very food oriented and didn't seem to like her old brand of food. We started buying Merrick after she gobbled it down at a friend's house. So far we've tried the duck, beef, and buffalo flavors. She seems to enjoy them all. I'd recommend you give Merrick a try if your dog does not seem very enthusiastic about his or her current food.

  • Is very good dog food and recieved so fast

    By on

    I really like this new dog food and am thankful for letting me try a new food to try at a discount as they are not carrying my food I have always ordered. My Rottweiler loves the Merrick and is getting along great with it. It is a very comparable food. Thanks for getting all I order from you in a very fast manner.

  • Quality Kibble for Our Woffers

    By on

    Merrick Sweet potato and Duck is a healthy meal and much liked by our four legged food critics. We have been using this product for some 3 years and have only started buying from Chewy for home delivery. My wife and I are Seniors and now do not need to lug the 25 lb sack of kibbled from store to car and up some 25 steps to the front door of our house. Go Chewy! Also, home delivery is convenient for add-ons like flea and tick meds, litter bags, etc. And, best of all their prices are truly completive.

  • The dog certainly likes it

    By on

    This is a 1 1/2 year old lab. There was no drop off between between previous Nutrisource product and this Merrick product, but she is a lab and eats anything. Since the Merrick product is meat based, I think it will be better for her.

  • My Dog loves it!

    By on

    My 3 yr old lab is very enthusiastic at eating time. He loves the duck recipe. Will be buying more. Shipping from Chewy.com can't be beat...very fast shipping! Set up auto delivery and can have it sooner or later depending on when it runs out.

  • Thankful for Merrick

    By on

    Swapped our pinnacle for merrick in a pinch! We had no idea that pinnacle had limited distribution of their food and we were 2 scoops away from empty. We looked up a bunch of reviews on different foods and this was our choice. Our frenchie loves this food! She actually starts doing crazy zoomies and bunny hops at feeding times. It's adorable! Her skin and coat are still flawless and shiny. Her energy levels have increased and she's happy all the time. Thanks for helping me find our new forever food.

  • My boy always did well on Merrick

    By on

    I have been feeding my boy Merrick since he was a puppy. I love the choices in flavors and he loves his food as well. I mix wet and dry each meal, he always finishes his bowl. Chewy is a great retailer. Super fast free delivery, and no tax in New York, with prices I can not find lower. Who can ask for more?

  • Very pleased

    By on

    We had previously been giving our dogs Authority brand grain free food. While this food is still pretty good, we wanted something with some better natural ingredients. This food has some good ingredients without the insane cost! And our dogs enjoy the food very much.

  • Merrick Grain Free

    By on

    I have used the Merrick brand for 3 years on my German Shorthaired Pointer. I like the quality, the food is not imported from overseas, and the blend is consistent. The fact that Chewy makes delivery so easy just adds to the value.
