Description

Make every bite count with the Merrick Backcountry Raw Infused Hero's Banquet Recipe Dry Dog Food. Offering a protein-rich diet that comes from premium meat, this recipe starts with real, deboned beef as the first ingredient, plus pork, turkey, lamb and salmon. Freeze-dried raw protein pieces are then added to provide a nutritional boost, as well as easy digestion and a taste that dogs just plain love. And it’s all inspired by the work of Merrick’s partner K9s for Warriors, whose mission is pairing specially trained rescue dogs with veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disability.

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

Mix Merrick's food with your current pet's food over the course of 5-7 days. Continuously increase the amount of the Merrick food while decreasing the amount in your dog or cat's current diet.
