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.

    My dog eats it and thats no easy feat

    By on

    I was struggling to find something that my dog would eat. He can be VERY picky for a little guy so sometimes I would have to add in chicken to get him to eat and even still he would eat all the chicken and leave the kibble. Thankfully he seems to really like this food. He will even eat without me adding anything in and eats all of it! I wish it came in a bigger bag.

    Grace is not impressed...bummer!

    By on

    Grace is not impressed. We also noticed she is passing a ton of gas. I checked the comments and the formula on all of their food has changed. Kinda bummed, she is eating it but not happy. Switching to another brand (which I hate to do) but it's not chickpeas and currently has a special. Digits crossed she'll get excited again.

    Great Food

    By on

    I switched both my dogs from Science Diet after I had been reading the issues with SD - I lost two dogs in November with kidney failure which now I'm leaning towards food. I read up a lot on Merrick and it has great ratings and natural. Both dogs love it and I mix it with the wet food. Just have to be careful not to over feed because they will gain weight if they eat too much. One apprehensive issue: read where Purina bought them out which makes me wonder if they will still maintain their level of quality and production in Texas, if not, I'll try another natural food.

    They like it!

    I have a picky eater that had no problem chowing this down. Kibble is small enough for my 4lb Yorkie, but big enough for my larger Dachshund. Will definitely try other products by this brand.

    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.
