Merrick Freeze-Dried Raw Mixers (chicken)
on Aug 8, 2020
Our puppy loves the Merrick Freeze-Dried Raw mixers (chicken). Some times, she's a picky eater...crushing some of these little kibbles with water and mixing in with her dry food, entices her to eat. They are great for special treats too. Will definitely buy again.

This works great as a topper that breaks quickly in water and can be mixed with food. My dog is a picky eater. This is one of the toppers I use and he seems to like it occasionally.
He eats this up !!

My dog is a very finicky eater. But he has eaten his meals must better since using this mixer with his regular dry dog food.
Perfect for our Little Dogs
on Jun 12, 2020
These are perfect for our mini dachshunds who have had a number of teeth extracted. Lately even the softer treats were difficult for them. These we use as their snack and they are perfect. They don’t have a lot to chew but they love them. Only reason I didn’t give a 5-star is bc they are expensive.
Excellent topper for variety
on Jun 13, 2020
This food is excellent as a topper for extra health benefits and flavor variety. Winner in my book and and my dog’s too
Poodle didn't like at all
on May 27, 2020
He ate a few when we first got them but after that would not have anything to do with them.
Recipe Now Contains Whole Peas
on Dec 18, 2019
While the Original formula was a 5-star food that I purchased frequently and had been lately using with great success for a dog with megaesophagus, the new formulation now contains whole peas. Among other concerns, it is likely to be bulkier and apt to produce copious gas in the digestive system. Peas are generally an unsuitable ingredient in pet foods. I will discontinue purchasing this product immediately, and appreciate Chewy's advance notice of the change.
