Is the salmon wild caught or farmed? Can find the answer on the bag..
Answer by ChewyMar 03, 2021
Whenever wild-caught salmon is available, it is sourced for this diet. When not available, farm-raised Salmon from the Pacific Northwest is used to ensure the recipe is still available.

I have 4 dogs and am trying to figure out how many 25 lb bags I will need in a month. Between the 4 I use 9 cups. Do you know how many cups are in each bag approximately? Thanks!
Answer by ChewyMar 11, 2018
There are approximately 16 cups of kibble in the 4-pound bag, approximately 48 cups of kibble in the 12-pound bag, and approximately 100 cups of kibble in the 25-pound bag.

does your dog food have glucosamine?
Answer by ChewyJun 01, 2021
This recipe contains approximately 800 milligrams of Glucosamine hydrochloride per kilogram.

Does Merrick use organ meats in their recipes? What percentage is peas or pea protein?

Merrick does not use organ meat in their food. They are not able to give out specific percentages of ingredients as the recipes are proprietary.

Best ingredients

A lot of dogs around the two year and three-year-old Time in their lives become allergic to chicken by products. Salmon and sweet potato is the best diet for these dogs.

The perfect food

This product provides the perfect balance of nutrients to keep a dog healthy and happy.Moreover,many dogs are allergic to chicken and beef,but not to salmon.That is yet another reason why I buy it

Still testing

Merrick food shows as a highly recommended grain free dog food. My GSD has skin allergies so we tried the salmon. Still working with it.

2 dogs love 1 not so much

I fed this food years ago but , purina took them over & I hate purina they are more for making money then caring for our loved animals , any ways , the foods I switched to came up on a recall ,then the other food I then switched to was always on back order , and these were very high priced dog foods . I have 2 dogs that are allergic to grains if it is a seed they will get ear infections & infections between their toes & fur loss , & one of my dogs is allergic to chicken even the fat which lots of dog foods have in them , and I will Not feed my dogs Canola oil which is toxic to any living being so with that my choices are limited & this was my last resort to feeding them dry food , if they start having issues I will opt for a RAW home made diet .

My review when it comes to Merrick dry dog food yes it is very expensive but it's worth every penny it is extremely healthy for your pet my dogs absolutely love it they love the backcountry freeze dried food more so than the other ones they also like the salmon and Venice and the rabbit with the sweet potato I found a dog food that is extremely exceptional is it worth buying yes I believe it is there are more expensive dog food out there that are high quality I'm not going to entertain it Merrick provides exceptional dog food for it's price I'm just now starting to buy the back country wet food for my dogs I use that every now and then not all the time I know my dogs prefer the gravy formula over the compressed mixed formula All In All Merrick provides a really good dog food I would recommend this product to anybody you will not be disappointed and if for some odd reason FedEx or UPS if they damaged your bags in shipment chewy will replace them at no additional charge

Merrick dog food

This food is nutritionally better, with more protein and less grain than other name brands. Although slightly more in price, I feel it will benefit my dog’s health greatly.

Sophie Sheltie

Sophie loves this food! It’s very healthy! The food is very tasty and she gobbles it up! Good deal for your price! Chewy delivery is the best for all their products! My daughter’s dog eats this brand and that is why I bought it.

Thank you Merrick!

I have a golden with real allergies to chicken. Merrick is the only food I have found that doesn’t hide chicken as a filler and call it mixed tocopherols. I wish the other dog food companies had to pay the vet bills!

Top quality for budget price

My dogs love it and are doing very well on this high quality food. It doesn’t break the bank either. You don’t need to feed quite as much as they state. Smells fresh and looks appealing

Always a winner!

My border collie loves this mix. I've been feeding him Merrick for many years and I'm never disappointed. I like that they offer a nice mix of beef, chicken, etc. I will always pay more if I know that it's a quality product. I'm thankful that Chewy sells and quickly delivers it to my front door.
