Go Grain Free

Merrick Grain-Free recipes are great for dogs with food sensitivities. They're made with high-quality protein and farm-fresh fruits and vegetables to provide a natural food formula rich in nutrients that support the overall health and well-being of your dog.

Merrick Classic

It Starts With Protein

Merrick Grain-Free starts with real and wholesome USDA-inspected deboned meat, poultry or fish as the first ingredient, meaning more wholesome protein with every meal, providing the amino acids necessary for building strong muscles and a healthy metabolism.

Fresh Ingredients Are In

The finest, freshest ingredients included in these flavorful blends are harvested from local ranchers and farmers for quality and sustainability assurance. And all grain-free recipes include no meat by-products or artificial preservatives, and absolutely no ingredients from China.

Benefits Abound

Omega-6 and 3 fatty acids support a beautiful, shiny coat, while significant levels of glucosamine and chondroitin help maintain joint health so your dog can run and play. As always, Merrick Grain-Free recipes are completely free of corn, wheat and soy.

Balanced Nutrition

Each recipe provides best-in-class natural nutrition from a wholesome balance of protein, fruits, vegetables and more to ensure the overall health of your furry friend. And unlike some other healthy pet foods, Merrick Grain-Free features an incredible taste dogs can't get enough of.

  • Dogs did not like it at all

    By on

    I have 2 German Shepherds. They weigh about a 100 lbs each. We had always fed them Nutri Source and Pure Vita by Nutri Source. Chewy no longer carries this brand so we decided to give Merrick's a try. By the second bag, we could not coax them to eat it. They would take a few bites and walk away. We went to a local store that carries Nutri Source and they scarfed their dinner. Some dogs may like it but ours did not.

  • Wow! SO pleased with Merrick

    By on

    I recently switched to this food for my Aussie and he loves it! I am so happy to have a found a healthy, natural food that he enjoys because he is usually a picky eater. Not only is the food great, but the customer service is too. I wanted to return my unused bag of the previous food in exchange for this and instead of having me return it, the customer service agent told me to just donate the food to a local shelter and they sent me this bag instead. A+ Chewy!

  • Wasn't very popular with my dogs.

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    I have been feeding Taste of the Wild, which I think is very good dog food. However the dogs weren't eating it very good so I thought I would try Merrick. I mixed i t with the Taste of the Wild, but they wanted Taste of the Wild. I think I made the mistake of ordering chicken in the Merrick because Taste of the Wild was Beef. Anyway, guess I'll go back to Taste of the Wild.

  • Great Quality Food & My Dogs Like the Flavor!

    By on

    Merrick offers a great balance of price and quality. I switched from Blue Buffalo after hearing about ingredients sourced from China (on the part of BB's suppliers). My dogs really enjoy Merrick's chicken and sweet potato blend. They do really well on it. No stomach problems or other issues, and everyone seems to like it!

  • Really wonderful

    By on

    I was...( as is everyone) very skeptical of products that are sent thru the mail! Little did I know that it really was wonderful !! The product is better than (in my opinion) the store bought. It was smaller in meal size and my dog loves it... So I heartedly recommend this Company and Product!!!!

  • Love At First Bite

    By on

    Our 18 month old hound/shepherd mix just loves it! He really favors the chicken and turkey recipes. We buy the smaller bags so we can switch off about every 2 weeks. That way he doesn't tire of eating the same thing.
