Does this food contain Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex

Is the products used to make the dog food from the USA? I see it's processed here but where do they get the meat and other ingredients to make the food?
Answer by ChewyJun 13, 2018
Merrick crafts their recipes with the freshest, highest quality ingredients available. Most of Merrick's ingredients come from the USA, however, in certain circumstances some ingredients may be sourced from China due to availability. Each and every ingredient must meet Merrick's own rigorous quality standards. Ingredients are tested upon arrival, samples are tested throughout production, and all pet food is tested before they release it for sale.

Is this safe for large breeds? I have a Great Pyrennes pup
Answer by ChewyApr 11, 2018
Merrick Grain Free Puppy Real Chicken + Sweet Potato Recipe Dog Food is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for All Life Stages including growth of large size dogs (70 lbs or more as an adult).

At what age should stop feeding a puppy three times a day and reduce it too two times a day?

At 6-12 months you can transition to two meals a day.

pup approved

I have been feeding my dogs Merrick dog for over 8yrs and they do awesome on it ,so when I brought home my Standard Poodle puppy. I knew what food I was going to feed her , I just wish they had specific large breed puppy because large breeds need a little more calcium for growing bones than small breeds . I am debating if I am going to keep her on Merrick puppy or change to something else for large breeds , but I like the ingredients in Merrick over all other brands & my adult dogs do awesome on Merrick , but my puppy loves food & eats it dry or moistened with broth , the breeder was feeding the puppy propac & when I looked up the ingreds in that food it was a big No , I feed her 4xs a day about a cup each and she always has some dry in her kennel to much on , her poops are a little soft due to switching from propac to merrick it has only been two weeks so next week only Merrick , so we shall see after that .

Merrick Brand is Good Quality Food

My Corgi puppy has been eating this since first arriving back in late October of '22. He seems to love it as much as when he was first introduced to it. Always leaves a clean bowl. I do top this kibble with a fresh food from a brand that I am on subscription for. He seems to process this food without any complications. I've tried other premium kibble brands but found the Merrick is reliable in terms of quality, appearance and formulation.

I know it’s pricey, but Bones is my only baby and he loves the flavor of chicken. This is the one food he would salivate over before I even put it in his bowl and he’s a picky one! Really awesome quality and great formula.

Puppy Food

Good nutritious food for my dog is one of my top priorities. When I got my new puppy this was no different and I knew I’d go with Chewy and this dog food. My puppy eats it right up

My dog loves this dog food, although it is pricey it meets all my expectations of a great clean dog food. I hope they continue to make this dog food in the USA. It’s good to know that I am feeding my dog, a well-balanced product and without a doubt Merrick meets the challenge!

Bag ripped open, kibble all over

Opened box and bag ripped open, food all over in box. Called Chewy and new bag sent. Partial blame on Merrick for their bag sealing design; major blame on Chewy warehouse workers for mishandling bags as they are packed for shipping (appears they workers rip the bags as they throw the bags about while in the warehouse and into the boxes). I've had multiple orders from Chewy where the bag was delivered ripped open and kibble everywhere. Oh, and many of the boxes had to be re-taped shut due to poor packing practices that Chewy follows

Love this food.

I have been feeding Merrick foods to my dogs for the last 10 years. My dogs have always loved it and thrived on it. Beautiful healthy coats. No allergic reactions like with other foods.
