Using the guide above, divide the total per day by the total number of times you feed your dog per day to determine the portion size for each meal. Keep a clean bowl of fresh water available at all times. Every dog is a little different, so optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, size and activity level. Please use the information provided as an initial recommendation only and adjust when needed. Dry and wet food in combination will help to increase the level of water in your dog's diet.

  • If feeding with wet food, reduce dry amount by 1/2 cup for every 6 oz of wet food.

  • For dogs over 100 lbs: add 1/4 cup per additional 10 lbs.

Transition Instructions

When switching your dog's diet, we recommend that it be done gradually over a 5-7 day period.�

    Best choice for Lily!

    By on

    This is the first dog food my Lily has eaten without manipulation. Usually we have to add something to coax her to eat, but not with this Merrick brand. So happy we found it! This is the brand we chose to transition her from puppy food to adult and we are very pleased.

    20/10 would recommend

    By on

    We love this dog food! I have a Rotty/GS mix and a Brittney Spaniel and they LOVE this food. Their coats are so much softer and shiny than before. Their poops are more consistent and solid. Can't say anything bad about this food!!

    Loved by our Labs

    By on

    Our dogs love this food so much that they had their heads in the sack while my husband was preparing their dinner. There will be no leaving the door ajar now. They like both the raw pieces and the kibble pieces. Very satisfied!

    Very Disappointed

    By on

    The product did not live up to its billing. My pack refused to touch it even with inducements.

    Pricey, but she's worth it.

    By on

    We are on our second bag of this food. My doberman loves it. I am giving it four stars because of the price and also because the raw pieces seem to be all on top of the bag and not evenly distributed. Halfway on the first bag there was only kibble, she still ate it up but with this bag I try not to give her as many raw pieces in one serving so maybe she will not go half the bag without it. I was also worried about too much protein for her but the vet assured me it was fine. We went with this because she just stopped eating her old Taste of the Wild food and so I'm happy that she is eating again. Overall, it's a good food that she loves to eat.

    Roscoe loves it...

    By on

    My bloodhound Roscoe loves this food. He picks out the freeze-dried bits right away, but he'll get to the kibble when he's hungry.

    GREAT FOOD

    By on

    My five German Shepherd‘s love this food! I recently tried one bag of a different brand and none of them wanted to eat it so I had to hurry up and notify chewy to send me two more bags!
