Description

Because the best dog ever deserves the best food ever, Merrick Grain-Free Real Venison + Chickpeas Recipe Dry Dog Food delivers allergy-friendly nutrition with a grain-free recipe that features a novel protein. Deboned venison is the first ingredient for a leading 36% protein, followed by farm-fresh apples and blueberries for powerful antioxidants. Potatoes and other common allergens like corn, wheat, soy and gluten are replaced by chickpeas for a low-glycemic source of energy to fuel your hungry pup. Your dog will also benefit from high doses of glucosamine and chondroitin for increased mobility along with high levels of omega fatty acids for skin and coat health.
