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.

Customer Reviews

Merrick Grain-Free Real Duck + Sweet Potato Recipe Dry Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 190.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from TIMELY DELIVERY I'm constantly asked for a review, which I normally don't provide as the product is for my dogs, and they won't tell me what they think. Although, I have asked. The only thing I can review, as to the order, is the prompt delivery of the food, which is greatly appreciated. I cannot speak on the quality of the food, other than it is recommended for the health of my dogs. Nor can I comment on the taste, as I don't eat it. As to whether or not my dogs love it, well, they will eat cat poo, but I don't think that's the benchmark you are looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I chose this food due to the 70% animal protein content. My dog responded to this "new" food with far more enthusiasm than any of the other foods we have given her. We have battled her over her addiction to eating her poop ever since we've had her-she's 5 now. Imagine my surprise when she lost interest in eating her poop when we started feeding her this food. Don't know what's in it that causes this and don't care, just beyond thrilled that this battle seems to be over. Also, this is the first dog food that she actually chews up and not just swallows whole. The pieces are about the size of a green English pea. Icidentally, it's also the smallest kibble we've ever fed her. Thank you, Merrick, for such an amazing dry dog food. We've been though half a 25 lb bag and our dog still loves it. She has soft fur and is super happy. Her anxiety is gone, (but to be fair, so is our ailing aging cat. We wonder if she wasn't picking up on the cat's pain). We will be feeding her this duck and sweet potato for a long time to come. Absolutely no complaints.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Small pieces, my dog would not eat I buy a lot of dog food and strive for top quality. This food was a waste for us. First it is small pieces and I have large dogs and just too small for them. I also always add meat or fish and gravy or to their meals and even just a wee bit of gravy the food turns to mush, My dogs have always liked the food I have given them. With this food they would pick out whatever I put in and just would not eat the kibble. My dogs do get another dog food with duck and potato and have loved it. While this could be a good food it was a waste of money for this family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I was buying Orijen for my dog for a long time but it started to get very expensive. I started doing some more researched and realized this brand is one of the few that has the same protein levels, is also a small company, and is grain free for a MUCH more reasonable price that I can actually afford in the long run. My dog loves it even more than she like Orijen and strangely enough my cats love it too! They will not stop eating it out of my dogs bowl! Also, the bag originally came with a few holes in it (probably from shipping) When i contacted Chewy they had me keep the old bag and told me to donate it to a shelter and sent a new bag right away with 2 day shipping. I am super impressed with this company. You dont see customer service like that very often these days.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Good for My Sensitive Pits Have two pits that are very sensitive to food. Been trying to find some food which is relatively economic and good quality so I tried Merrick. They seemed to like the food but it caused both to have very dirty (yeasty) ears and caused one of them to get dirty paws as well. I'm sure this would work for a lot of people but my two pits we're sensitive to the food.
