Zoë and her Merrick

My Zoë loves the Merrick. I love that it has some, carefully picked, grains. On occasion, I give it to her plain but as a routine I add a tablespoon of wet dog food—sometimes home cooked from a doggie cookbook. I really miss the “zipper” it use to have at the very top of the bag but I appreciate that comes at a cost… even so, the price of the 4lb bag is too high at $19… $15 seems fairer for all parties involved.

My dogs love it.

I am very pleased with this food. After trying several small breed foods that have smaller kibble I ran across this. All of my dogs love it . My elderly pug mix who is missing teeth handles it well. I even started feeding it to my pit mix since it has similar ingredients to the large dog kibble and I'm tired of buying multiple bags of dog food. She is also eating it well at no real added cost.

Happy pups

This food is great for my top poodle & shih tzu pups. They are older & the kibble size is easy for them to eat. When I put this food in their bowl, they quickly ate it and continued to go back & get another bite. The glucosamine helps with their joints & avoids them getting stiff. It has added a nice shine to their coat. I am very pleased!

Kibble Size

I have been feeding this to my chihuahua for a couple of years and have always liked the small kibble size. However, the most recent bag that I received had kibble that were at least double the size of what they usually are.

My dogs love it.

I have three yorkies and my oldest is my pickets eater. Merrick Healthy Grain is the only food she will eat continuously. I highly recommend this food. The kiddle is small enough for them to eat without any issues.

Looking for kibble.

Thus far this dry food has NOT appealed to my small dogs.. It sits in the dish with a few curious sniffs but that's all.. Admit they are particular when it comes to food... Perhaps they know something we don't.

Great Stuff!

My very picky dogs (who mostly eat human food) actually like this tiny kibble!
