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

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.

    High Quality

    By on

    Our Aussie pup began to turn her nose up at the fishy pup formula made by another premium brand. I was looking for a replacement and was sold after reading about the company. Not only is the formula high quality but the packaging is top notch with a resealable VELCRO style closure. We are pleased with the Merrick food items we've purchased.

    Merrick is Peace of Mind

    I am a former high profile cat breeder and former police dog breeder. Nutrition translates into longevity and health. Merrick comes without the worry of unknown ingredients, scary and continual recalls. They test every batch before packaging. Yes, over the *years*, they have had a few recalls but every food manufacturer has once in awhile glitches, but Merrick food has never resulted in grievous health problems or caused death as so many grocery store manufactures have inflicted upon our beloved pets in the name of profit! Shame on them! Merrick cannot be found in grocery stores, so I rely upon wonderful Chewy for Merrick.

    This food is great for my 5 month old terrier mix puppy. It also doesn’t upset her stomach when I combine it with her honest kitchen brand dehydrated food.

    no all puppies like it

    By on

    This is a high quality food and one recommended by our trainer but our puppy was not crazy about it and didn't really enjoy eating it and would some times not eat it at all. just make sure your puppy tries it first to make sure they like it so you would not have to waste buying a large back and ending up having to buy something else !!
