Change type of food
Our dog decided she wouldn’t eat her usual Merrick dog food anymore . Changed to a type with freeze dried raw in it and she loves it
Nice variety, Hurk likes it.
First off, if you read the reviews, one poor review stated this food lacked an essential amino acid needed to prevent congestive heart failure. That is Taurine I believe, and Taurine is right there in the ingredient list. I purchased a couple small bags of this to try with my Pittbull rescue. It seems to be helping his shedding and skin allergies. He loves it, so now it's on auto ship. OF course, he picks out the freeze-dried treats first, but he likes the 2 varieties I have purchased. I would take a star away for the price, as $70 for 20lbs is a chunk of change, but the other food he likes is the Stella & Chewy's Wild Red, and that one is even MORE (but lots of organic ingredients). My fault for liking big dogs I guess :)
They love it!
I was buying American Journey for a while, which is a great brand, but they don’t have many flavor options and I like to change it up so my corgis don’t get bored. The girls love this food so much they picked around their old food through the transition. They always eat the freeze dried pieces first, and their stomachs didn’t seem to be bothered by it, plus Merrick has SO MANY choices which is great!
Great dry food
Have been purchasing this product for nearly 2 years and our pup loves it. She always looks for the small extra treats in every scoop and eats those first. Would highly recommend
My dogs did not like this at all
Not sure why but my two dogs refused to eat this food, I was hoping to get them on a better food, maybe the taste or smell, either way not happy spending that much money to just sit in a bag, will find a rescue to give it too.
Merrick Freeze-Dried Big game
My pups (two small under 25 pounds) love the freeze dried nuggets - there aren't very many in the bag so I purchase the freeze dried beef mixers. All in all its kind of pricy. But it has better ingredients than most other dog food I've researched. I chose this food as my one pup has skin issues.
The Merrick products are really creative. Big Game Raw infused is wonderful. Feel really comfortable buying this product for my dog. He wolfs it down & always is interested. Great idea to make the raw infused product available. Flavors that appeal to my big boy. Now dog parents have so much to pick from, so I do my best to get the best for my good boy. Kinda pricey, but so what. A good choice that provides a proper meal that is tasty.
great dog food
She loves the dry chicken I was having trouble finding her the perfect food but not anymore
the dogs love it
in my opinion Merrick is one of the best foods available. My dogs love this food. The multiple flavor options are a big plus to prevent boredom. Of course the dogs never complain its just me thinking they wouldn't want to eat the same thing every day.
My dog loves this food, and I feel good feeding it to him because it does not contain inflammatory ingredients, like canola oil. This food checks all the boxes of what he needs.
