Small dog dry food

My little Pug loves this food. Merrick makes what must be tastes yummy dry chow,and my little one thinks so. The nuggets are small for little dog mouths, and the ingredient list is all quality ingredients. If you have a picky eater,its worth a try. Ive been using Merrick products for nany years. This one works for me and my small dog.

Stopped the vomiting

Was feeding our PooChon Purina small bite food and he was vomiting almost every morning. My daughter suggested this food that she has her dog on and it stopped. I have always used Purina food for all my dogs. But I give this food 5 stars. Plus he really likes it.

Great for senior dogs

My fussy dachshund loves this food. It is small and easy for her to eat. Sometimes I put a little chicken broth on top and she gobbles it up.

My dog loves this food!

My dog often leaves his food sitting out and comes back to it later in the day. (He can be a picky eater at times). With healthy grains, he eats it right away!

Not bad, not great

I wanted to give this a try because I’ve heard good things. One of my dogs was fine with it, and she has a sensitive stomach. The other however we noticed that it was making her poop wayyyy more if she ate too much of it, and she usually has a stomach of steel. She ate half a plate of chicken parm (BY ACCIDENT) and was completely fine. So not sure why this dry food made her soft poop so much.

Dasher seems to really like it

I have always tried to give my fur baby the best. He did not really like his last brand of dog food. This one matches what vets are saying about what dogs really need. This seems to meet those goals. And he likes it. He seems to enjoy the whole grains too. I want Dash to enjoy his food as well as being good for him.

Merrick Small Dog Food

My little guy wasn’t a fan. I liked the ingredients of this brand, but he prefers the Chihuahua food by royal cabin.
