Questions & Answers

20 Customer Questions

The chicken version of this food includes all life stages “including growth of large breed” dogs over 70 lbs as adults. Does the beef version also meet this stnadard?
Answer by ChewyJun 06, 2018
This was formulated for small and medium breed puppies. A large breed puppy may require larger kibble to accommodate their jaw structure. This formula only provides pint sized puppy bites.

Does the Puppy Beef with Sweet Potato have any dyes in it?
Answer by ChewySep 30, 2018
This formula contains no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.

Are the ingredients in the texas beef dry puppy sourced and made in the USA?
Answer by ChewyJan 22, 2020
Merrick crafts their recipes with the world's best ingredients from the best producers. Most of their ingredients come from the USA, however, in certain circumstances some ingredients may come from another country (like lamb from New Zealand) to ensure the highest quality possible. 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 its released for sale.

Dobie Lives This!

Our Doberman mix puppy loves this beef and sweet potato kibble. We had another kibble on hand when we got her and she didn't touch it. Her foster mom had been feeding her the Merrick's and I'm thrilled that she lives to eat it. I don't mind the price given the quality ingredients and because she enjoys it.

Great food, but multiple problems.

Usually, this food is great! I've had my puppy on this food since I got her at 8 weeks old. It always did well, her coat has been shiny and she's been healthy. Lately, I've bought the past 5 or 6 bags of food from pet stores and here and it has been BURNT. There's usually a sweet aroma from it, like puppy food, and it smells like burnt cardboard. Merrick needs to get this under control. This isn't a cheap brand of food, either. I shouldn't have to worry whether it's going to be burnt or not when I open the bag. I'm tired of playing the guessing game, and will be getting a different food from now on. Usually I love Merrick, but this has been a constant disappointment. Hopefully I can send this food back and get a refund.

Great Food, Great Company

Discovered this food after being unable to obtain a special weaning formula from another company. Found I could wean my puppies without digestive problems. And I did not have to jump through hoops to get it.

Great food

I accidentally got the puppy one but my dog is 5 years old. What I do to feed my dog is mix in dry food with food I make at home. When I first mixed it in my dog was a little skeptical since it looked different but he quickly ate it after tasting it. He loved it! I love that the ingredients are all natural cause that's what I worry the most about for my dog. Also no negative reactions to the food which is a great plus!

Delightful puppy goodness

My puppy went absolutely bonkers when I introduced her to this delightful treat. I’ve never seen her react to any food this way and I feel I’m definitely going to keep this as a main food item. Replaced is my previous puppy food lol and up on the shelf there will only be one.

Pups new favorite

I received this for an honest review. My dog really loved this. I have been feeding him the same food for almost a year and you can tell her was getting tired of it because as soon as I gave him the full bowl he was too excited. I love the natural ingredients and the health benefits that Merrick provides. I will definitely be buying it.

Great, but not for me.

The ingredients listed are great and my dogs enjoyed the food, but unfortunately it's a bit too brittle of a dog food for me. Both of my dogs eat at least a meal out of a wobbler style slow feeder and this food left crumbs everywhere. If they were just bowl dogs it does great, but I wouldn't recommend for those who use non bowl style slow feeders

My dogs dug it

Merrick's food has exactly what a dog should have for a healthy balanced diet. It doesn't have grain, soy, preservatives or any by-products in it. I've been giving it to my puppy for 10 months & when I change his diet to adult food I'm still staying with Merrick. Recommend it very highly!

Not my dogs favorite

My dog did not like this food. It was something that he would only eat mixed in with his current food. It did have really good ingredients, I just think my dog was not used to the flavor

Great puppy kibble!

First off, this packaging is fire. Had I been cruising the store trying to figure out what to try with my puppy, it certainly would have caught my eye. The kibble itself is rich looking in color (not dull or bland in appearance), the perfect size for a puppy, and it must smell great as our pup came running right over to it! So far, no issues!
