I always check AAFCO statements, and I can’t seem to find one on a lot if the diets you have for sale. It would be beneficial if you could post. Looking for this one currently. Thanks
Answer by ChewyAug 07, 2018

Is the weight on the feeding chart the cuurent weight of the puppy so that the portion size inceraees as the puppy gows?
Answer by ChewyMar 30, 2021
The feeding chart is divided for puppies 6 to 16 weeks old and puppies 17 to 52 weeks old since as your dog grows older, their nutritional needs change.

Are the vitamins sourced from China ? Does food contain any by-products ?

Puppy Doesn't Like

I thought my dog was just a grazer.. After she stopped having solid poops, I thought it might be the food not agreeing with her. I switched her to something else and now she eats her food in one breath! Turns out she wasn't a fan of Merrick Classic Grains. I don't think her tummy was either.

Merrick Classic Healthy Grains Puppy Recipe Dry Dog Food

My dog seems to enjoy this dog food, but won't eat it by itself. I have to put a topper on it and I use Spot & Tango puppy topper and I also give him boiled chicken breast pieces. As well as a few dried cranberries. I even add sweet potato or other food items that dogs are allowed.

Pups Love It, Wish it Came in Small Bites Though

While my Yorkie and Maltese pups like this food better than their previous brand, the kibble pieces are larger than the Merrick Adult Small Bites formulas, making it difficult for such small little mouths to eat easily. Unfortunately, any of the other Merrick puppy formulas are grain free, which I don’t feel I can safely feed my pups. Oh well.

vet recommended

I started my new rescue puppy on this before her first visit to the vet a week later - I asked the vet to confirm i made the right choice and she said that it is what she feeds her dogs as well - good ingredients and doesn't upset her stomach! I also feed her the Merrick treats as well for training and rewards

This brand is very good for my 10 week old BICHON/POODLE. VET says brand is good for puppy and my VET knows good dog food.

did not like this

My boston puppy did not like this food at all. I had to put other brands of food on top just for him to take a bite. It also caused soft stool. I removed this kibble from his diet and replaced with just homemade food and his energy level, stool, and skin/coat drastically improved. Wouldn’t recommend this food for the price especially if you are on a budget. I wish i could return the rest of this massive bag. Kibble is also very very tiny. This brand is marketed as one of the bests for your pup but in my opinion its no difference than purina/royal canin. If not worse. Bland kibble

Not successful...

We chose Merrick to transition our puppy from what the breeder was feeding our dog because We liked the ingredients. The kibble is very small and after a couple weeks it made our dog’s stool very loose and we noticed he wasn’t always finishing his meals either. We returned it and started a new one to transition him on and his stool is much better and he seems to like this one too.
