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.
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
No more business withchewy
Well I’m done dealing with them !!but don’t let my review discourage you they were good until they weren’t!
PUPPY LOVES DRY FOOD
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
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.
I didn’t like this :(
Hey guys, I’m an Aussie mix and my paw rents got this for me after doing research on puppy food with healthy grains. I appreciate their efforts in feeding me with good stuff but I didn’t like the taste of this at all! It made my tummy hurt and it was difficult for me to go potty. It was pretty awkward bc I didn’t know how to get the message across to my pawrents. Finally my Vet advised my mom to feed me a different brand. She did and now my tummy feels much better! I’ll try merrick one more time when I’m no longer a puppy but for now, this isn’t the brand for me.
KIBBLE TOO SMALL FOR LARGE BREED
I have an 87 lb 8 month old golden retriever the kibbles are so small it all ends up all on the floor. with such a high price and ridiculously small 12 lb bags its not worth buying. The ingredients seem good but my dog wont eat it unless I put a sweet potato , chicken or egg it and even then he tries to pick it out. If this is supposed to include large breed dogs why are the kibbles so small and the bags so small?
