    I wanted a bigger back of the chicken and sweet potato recipe for our most recent rescue which is a beagle mix. He was eating up all our "little bites". I was concerned the kibble would be too large and he wouldnt like it but it's JUST RIGHT and my larger chihuahua doesn't mind the larger size at all. I still use the "lil bites" for my tiny dogs. I went ahead and subscribed to auto ship. It's working out great

  • Dogs love it!!!

    By on

    I have always tried to buy the best food possible for my dogs. My oldest, Skipper, is 11 years, Ace, our beagle is 4 years old. When we acquired Ace, Skipper's health wasn't that great. He didn't want to play or be bothered with Ace. His skin/ coat was very bumpy, flaky and caused him to itch, which he scratched and that caused sores. Once the Merrick came in, I ordered the Venison/Chickpea recipe, which they absolutely love, his allergies started to be less and less, he also started running and playing with Ace. Today, he no longer suffers with any allergies, sores or bumps! His skin and coat is so velvety soft. He also is just full of life and is very muscular and lean.

I truly believe that Merrick's grain free dry dog food is the reason he's so much better!! They also have so many flavors. I swap up each month, so when it's eating time, they run to their food bowls with excitement. Not bored with the same ole same ole. My veterinarian Dr. Griffith, said that he hasn't seen Skipper look this strong and healthy in a long time, to keep doing what I'm doing! Thanks to Merrick, I no longer am having to spend money on medications that really weren't solving his problems. Yes, Merrick is pricey, but it's a lot less than his monthly medications were. Merrick, along with Chewy.com, together, allow me to save money and continue to give my dogs the best food/treats possible, without hurting our wallets. Hope you will give them a try, you'll be very glad you did. … more

  • Made my dog sick

    By on

    I have had my dog on this dog food for a few months after switching from Taste of the wild. She had more energy, her coat became shinier, and had no problem with the beef flavor. Then I changed to the chicken, she got sick, didn't want to play, and just seemed sluggish. I tried giving her half of the beef and half chicken and still ended up the same. She has been on the chicken and rice diet since, and the other night i mixed in some kibble, as an experiment, and still ended up the same. With all the dogs I have had growing up, we never had this problem switching flavors- no matter the brand.

  • Merrick dog food

    By on

    We researched many products before choosing Merrick. We could not be happier. Bailey loves the stuff, and although he's a rough and tumble kinda guy, he has a very sensitive digestive system. He doesn't just eat this, he INHALES it. And BTW, Chewy always delivers on schedule. THANKS.

  • Did not work for my dogs

    By on

    I tried this bag after I could no longer get Fromm and Acana from Chewy. I also ordered a bag of their rabbit recipe. After two weeks of the dogs eating this they were all 4 throwing it up and refusing to eat it unless I topped it with forte flora. They would then eat the food and after a couple of hours throw it up with foam and the kibble would still be formed but, swelled up and softer. I used the rest of the bag over half of it to mix with my larger outside dogs dry food and they didn't seem to have an issue other than a looser stool. I then began the rabbit formula. Same story on the tummy issues began almost immediately.

  • I gotta say... #longreview

    By on

    I've gone through so many different brands since I got my first dog 3 years ago. Online research only gave me a rough list of things to look out for, but eventually led me to more questions than answers. So, each time I tried a new brand or flavor, my grey gave me the answers I need: Is he throwing up? Bloody stool? Throw it out. Is he straight up just not interested? Finnish off the bag, and try something else. My greyhound never barks, unless he's 'truly' excited about something; ie, at the park, trying to instigate stuff lol. But when I started feeding him Merrick chicken or beef formula, he genuinely gets exited for each and every meal. It's been a year now, and he's just a healthy and I've gone through so many different brands since I got my first dog 3 years ago.

Every dog's different, but I personally recommend Merrick. Try it. And see what your dog thinks about it. … more

  • Incredible!

    By on

    My dogs have been eating this for a while and love it. I thought I would try ordering it with auto delivery as it is more cost efficient than what I was paying in the store. My order came very quickly! And, I swear the food smells fresher and looks better than what I used to buy in the store. Dogs get very excited to smell the box too!

  • Better then Blue....

    By on

    My 9 year old and 9 month pup love this food. It's the third time I've ordered it and they are always eager to eat. I had been feeding my cats and dogs Blue for a few years but one of my cats always had terrible "cow pies" no matter what recipe I used. My pup started to refuse eating it and when she did it came right back up. After switching to Merrick they are all happy campers and no issues at all.
