Divide the total per day by the total number of times you feed your dog per day to determine the portion size for each meal. Keep a clean bowl of fresh water available at all times. Every dog 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 Small Breed Recipe Dog Food each day.

Merrick Classic recipes bring good old-fashioned balanced, natural nutrition to your dog's bowl.

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.

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.

    Freddie loves it!

    By on

    My dog Freddie is a poodle mix and was having some issues with always eating his dry food and always wanting wet food mixed in. I was using Grain-free food and when I switched back to Classic, he loves the food, always finishes it all, and I no longer need to add canned food to get him to eat and he is no longer having occasional digestive issues.

    Licked clean Bowls

    By on

    I have had my two pups on Blue Buffalo since 2014 but they haven't been eating it, they seriously would rather go hungry than eat it, not sure if the formula changed or they are just sick of it. I ended up buying some wet food just so they would eat. I asked a chewy expert, and he directed me to this brand. I left one bowl of the BB and one bowl of this (we free feed instead of at a certain time) I took a shower and the blow was licked clean, so I refiled and it was empty again at the end of the night. (normally I do one cup of food per dog so I only put one cup each time, so both my dogs ate it gone (that's seriously unheard of for my pups) ever since they empty their bowl every day! plus the I have had my two pups on Blue Buffalo since 2014 but they haven't been eating it, they seriously would rather go hungry than eat it, not sure if the formula changed or they are just sick of it.

    Dog loves this food.

    By on

    It’s funny to say dogs can be picky eaters, because I’ve seen some that will eat anything not tied down, but mine is. And all I can say is she loves this food! Plus it’s healthy for her, so win win.

    small bits for sure

    By on

    The dogs loved the taste but since the bits were so small they ate it faster. If your dog needs pea size bites this is perfect. I was hoping to find a bigger bag since they liked it but decided the small bites may not be best for my 2 little picky eaters.

    New mix of food

    By on

    We just started using Merrick dog food. Our small dog really enjoyed it so we tried another mixture of the same brand. He really likes this as well. I would recommend this chicken dry food if you have a small breed pet.

    Hurray for Merrick

    By on

    My cavalier tried 2 other foods first. She'd reluctantly eat or we would need to hand feed. Tried Merrick chicken and sweet potatoes. She runs to eat her food now. So happy!

    Convenience

    By on

    I had gone to 2 pet stores near me to find neither had my brand of food for my pup. In checking the Chewy site I not only found I could have delivered in 2 days, it was also less expensive than what I was paying. I am now on AutoShip and won't have this problem again. Thanks Chewy!

    Dry Dog Food

    By on

    Was looking for a dry food for a small dog that was mostly vegetables with no beef or chicken. He loves this. I also buy the small containers of Lamb/Veggies and Rabbit/Veggies. He loves these too.
