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.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 171 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great food but costly! Both my dogs (super picky Havanese & mini schnauzer (who recently ate a whole cantaloupe, rind & all - sigh)) love Merrick in all its varieties. I'd love it even more if there were occasional sale prices - getting kinda costly on our fixed income. October 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Can not beat Chewy Price, inventory, and service is top rated. Highly recommend October 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our dogs love this!! My dogs thought they had died and went to heaven when they started to eat this Merrick sweet potatoe and duck. October 2, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by good quality priceing great priceing, same as other online shops, dont make us type some long bull review like this.... October 1, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by high quality food; great for dogs with allergies I researched several dog foods over the past 2 years for my dog who has an immune deficiency and skin allergies. I found Merrick Grain Free products have had a positive effect on his allergies. I've tried other grain free dog food that were beneficial, but not at the level as I've seen with Merrick. I chose the Duck + Sweet Potato for the high content of protein and added glucosamine and chondroitin, since my dog also has a bit of joint pain at times. The only downside I've experienced is that his skin/hair will smell like the food. As if he rolled in a bag of food. It is a very strong odor. But he loves the taste of the food. July 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Need Larger Quanity This dog food has everything I want in a dog food and my Bernese Mountain Dogs look fabulous with the shiniest coats. Just wish I could get larger bags because 25 lb bags go too so looking for a price break in a larger bag. But great food! August 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Great product and delivered in a well-ID'd Chewy box. Thanks! July 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally! A dry food that works as well as raw! I had tried several top brands of dog food after deciding that a raw diet for my rare breed sporting dog (a Bracco Italiano) was getting too expensive. Unfortunately, even the top name brands like Orijen, Canidae, etc. caused my boy to get diarrhea and left him hungry and looking thinner than I would have liked. When I tried Merrick Grain Free, I did so with reservations, especially since it was less expensive. Surely the savings meant compromise on quality - no so. I was so surprised at the results! My dog did not suffer digestive upset, he loved the taste, and he filled out nicely with a shiny coat too! I love the built in supplements for joints as well, which saves even more money. I have rotated several flavors of Merrick Grain Free and they all work just as well. Very, very happy and satisfied! I thank Chewy for refunding the other foods that did not work so I could finally find one that did! August 2, 2013
