    I have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and every Cav person always recommends Fromms. Unfortunately, Chewy stopped carrying it, and I like the option to have everything on auto-ship so I never have to worry about running out of food. When I searched for Fromms on Chewy, it suggested Merrick as a similar alternative. I hopped on Dog Food Advisor and, low and behold, it actually has a better rating than Fromms at a lower price!! I have bought it a couple times in box stores as well, but Chewy has the best prices so I threw it on auto-ship which saves even more money. My little guy LOVES the food and gobbles up every piece of kibble at mealtime.

The day I brought it home, I left it sitting on the counter for a few minutes and my cat was so enticed by the smell (would like to note this was an unopened, sealed bag, that's how strong the aroma is), she clawed the bag open--both the dog's and cat's food sits on a shelf she can reach and she has literally never done that. So, long story short, I switched her food to Merrick, too, and they are both happy eaters! Definitely recommend! … more

  • Pitbull loves it

    By on

    I used to live in California and bought my dog food from Kahoots (they have their own brand.) Since I moved back to the East Coast it was difficult finding something similar to what she liked. I did some research and decided to give Merrick a try. She loves all of the flavors, but this one seems to be her favorite. I Still mix up the flavors so she doesn't get bored of them, but the duck & sweet potatoes are a great combination.

    My longhaired mix suffered from hemorrhagic gastroenteritis shortly after I rescued her. This was the ONLY kibble she would eat, after her recovery & prescription food. She tends to tire of the same flavor, so I switch between this & the same in beef. It agrees very well with her sensitive tummy, no more diarrhea & vomiting!

    Our dog came from the Humane Society, so we didnt know much about him, since he is 2. Apparently, he is allergic to beef, and possibly other foods or airborne things. This was recommended, and he is doing great on this food. So many thanks to the people at Chewy who know their stuff!

  • Duck flavored

    By on

    My dog can be rather picky and she LOVES the duck flavor. Usually she'll graze on her food throughout the day but with this merrick flavor...she gets super excited when we go to scoop it into her bowl devours the entire thing... and would probably eat more if she could. We will be buying more!

  • Amazing food

    By on

    My 3 year old Rottweiler has always been picky with his food to the point were he will let his food sit there for hours. I switched over to Merrick and he loves it. He gets excited when I open the food bin and eats every last pebble. All in all this food is great.

  • Great Flavor

    By on

    I have bought this brand for a year. Never tried the duck before. My dogs, a pyrenes and a corgi, loved it. So far they are fans of the beef and the duck. I support the Merrick brand of pet food.

  • Glad we found this brand

    By on Top 100 Contributor

    My dogs have only eaten Orijen/Acana but ever since the formula was changed it's pretty much a whole new food for them and they wouldn't finish all of it like the original recipes so when chewy emailed me that they would no longer be carrying that brand I knew it was time to make the move to something else, but I remember how grim it was finding a high quality food that my dogs would love. Chewy made it easier to try whatever food I wanted for them by offering a 50% off coupon for any brand. After a lot of research I liked what Merrick offered so we tried 2 flavors to start. The beef recipe and the duck recipe. I have a senior dog and a 3 year old. They both loved it.

They've been on this brand for 2 months now and Merrick will be the brand we will stick too. Thank you chewy for making the transition much easier. … more

  • More Energy

    Our 6 year old Rough Collie was really slowing down with a low energy level and interest even though we feed a very high quality food. The lady that we got Tornado from highly recommended the Merrick product which convinced us. We slowly converted him to the Merrick Duck and Sweet Potato Recipe and have noticed a very positive increase in activity. We also strive to provide a quiet stable environment for our buddies. We have two other Rough Collies that love the Merrick Recipe. None of our dogs have had any appetite problems but I have noticed they are not drinking the large quantities of water they were previously, a good sign.

  • Merrick's Duck...added to our menu!

    By on

    We've been feeding Merrick's dry chicken, beef, buffalo and lamb for years. Thought we'd give their duck recipe a try. Even our Aussie/Border Collie mix, the smallest, most particular of our pack of four, said, "Is there more?" When they're happy, so are we!
