Which dog food would you recommend for older dogs that are overweight?

How big is this kibble? My 3-year-old chihuahua has a hard time chewing big kibble.
Answer by ChewyApr 08, 2021
The kibbles in this recipe are about the size of a button on a man's dress shirt.

Does Merrick use GMO'ed ingredients
Answer by ChewyJun 28, 2019
Merrick chose fruits, vegetables and whole grains that are GMO-free when creating their formulas. While they only use USDA-inspected protein options in their dog food and treats, they cannot guarantee that the diets of all the animals that provide their protein sources are GMO-free.

Whats in the chicken meal. is it scrap meats and diseased animal parts?
Answer by ChewyJul 31, 2020
Merrick meal is made from USDA inspected meat. Merrick use meat meals in all of their dry products. This means bone is not included. Their meals are excellent sources of essential amino acids, as well as minerals such as calcium and phosphorous. They are exceptional ingredients in terms of protein quality and digestibility and provide optimal nutrition for optimal health. If bone was included they would have to call it meat and bone meal. Merrick also do not use any diseased animal parts.

Picky dog loves it.

We have a mix breed dog that is very picky about his food. He needs to lose weight. I’ve tried several brands of light food and he does not like them. Have had to put toppers on them which doesn’t help him drop weight. This is the first food he likes. He prances when I put his bowl down. Merrick produces an excellent dog food product. Have used other dog food from them. Very satisfied with all.

Dogs not a big fan

Dogs were not fans of the food. While they ate it, the need for no grains and I am guessing the taste is the basis for us moving on from this particular version. Overall they do seem to like the other Merrick products.

Good & Healthy

This has been the only “diet” food that I’ve found to fill up my pup. I’ve tried many, many foods (prescription & store bought) that leave him begging him for more the minute his bowl is empty. For some reason, he eats this food slower & it keeps him full until the next meal. Time will tell if he loses weight but it’s a winner so far!

Best food ever!

This food has been a game changer for my cocker spaniel! She has always had a hard time with food sensitivities, and she’s done really well on this healthy weight food.

Dog lacks energy

After a little over a week on this food our Beagle has no energy. Started out ok but everyday gets a little lazier.

Pets aren’t adjusting to new food

Wish I had know the kibbles were so much larger than the senior kibbles, my pets are older & having a hard time adjusting to larger kibbles, so I’ll probably have to go purchase senior lil plates,again! Also had problem receiving order!

Tasty recipe

Ordered a small bag for my senior dog. We are upgrading to larger quantity because he loved the smaller sized morsel beefy flavor!

They love it!

One of our dogs can be really picky and she seldom will eat kibble out of my hand, although she does eat her dinner with no problem. I gave her a small handful of the Grain Free Healthy Weight Recipe and she gobbled it down and looked for more. Our other dog eats anything, so it wasn't a fair test with him. As to the product itself, I trust Merrick and we've been using Merrick grain free for years.
