Divide the total per day by the total number of times you feed your puppy per day to determine the portion size for each meal. Keep a clean bowl of fresh water available at all times. Every puppy is a little different, so optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, size and activity level. Please use the information in the chart as an initial recommendation only and adjust when needed.

Dry and wet food in combination will help 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.

Transition Instructions

Gradually mix in the new food over a 5 - 7 day period, increasing the amount of Classic Puppy Recipe each day.

About Merrick Classic Dog Food

A Healthy Classic

A Healthy Classic

Merrick Classic recipes bring good old-fashioned balanced, natural nutrition to your dog's bowl. Each blend is made with high-quality protein, whole grains, and farm-fresh fruits and vegetables to provide a natural food formula rich in nutrients that support the overall health and well-being of your dog. Recipes also feature a unique and healthy blend of whole grains—like the ancient grain quinoa—for a boost of fiber for optimal digestibility.

It Starts With Protein

Merrick Classic recipes start with real and wholesome USDA-inspected deboned meat, poultry or fish as the first ingredient. This means that your pet will get more wholesome protein with every meal. Quality protein provides the amino acids necessary for building strong muscles and a healthy metabolism.

Serve Up Balanced Nutrition

Dogs thrive on quality protein and healthy fats. To promote the overall health of your pet, Merrick Classic recipes feature a guaranteed balance of 50-60% meat, poultry or fish, 20-25% produce, vitamins and minerals, and 20-25% whole grains for a complete and balanced meal that will give your pup exactly what he needs. Merrick makes food to be fuel, not filler, and their balanced recipes ensure your pets enjoy every second of their dinner.

From Farm to Bowl

Following every protein are fresh fruits and vegetables, like sweet potatoes, blueberries and peas, for a complete and balanced recipe that will give your pup the nutrients he needs to live an active and healthy lifestyle. Only the finest, freshest ingredients are included in these flavorful blends that are harvested from trusted, local ranchers and farmers for quality and sustainability assurance. If unavailable locally, Merrick pursues the best ingredients from around the world, but no ingredients will ever come from China.

    My Old English Sheepdog puppy loves this recipe. It has everything a growing large breed puppy needs. I love the ingredients and it smells like real meat, not like chemicals like other dog foods.

    We have fed our westies Merrick kibble for many years and ordered this classic puppy recipe for our new 14 week old puppy. I am still happy with the quality of the recipe, but the individual kibbles are so tiny she has no need to chew them, just sucks them down. When this bag is gone I will switch her to the adult formula which I am already adding, hoping to get her to slow down and chew.
