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.

  • We love Chewy

    By on

    Rowdy our one year old Springer Spaniel is doing well with Merrick. We switched to Merrick from NutriSource Grain Free Prairie Select because it doesn’t contain that one ingredient that causes health issues. The other reason is we could purchase this from Chewy, with NutriSource we were forced to purchase from Petflow. We love Chewy when our last Springer passed away Chewy sent a card and flowers it meant a lot to our family.

  • Merrick Fan

    By on

    Very happy with this new flavor. My boy loves it and nice to introduce a new flavor into the mix. I feed him wet and dry at every meal, with a different dry food breakfast and dinner. I use the same wet until the can runs out, but all Merrick brand. After 9 years, I feel that Merrick does very well for my boy.

  • Disapointed

    By on

    My dog loved the taste of this dog food initially, but stopped eating it after a few weeks, which is unusual. More concerning, however, is the amount of dog food 'powder'(fine crumbs). Every scoop of kibble is covered in crumbs, I've never run into this before; when you get to the bottom of a bag, yes, but not throughout the bag. We'll be going back to her previous food - I was just trying to mix things up for her a bit, but obviously it didn't work.

  • 5 stars for MERRICK grain free venison

    By on

    I had a very scary situation with my girls on a different brand of dog food.Many vet visits later and an emergency situation ( because of what we thought was a top tier dog food) we have transitioned to Merrick venison grain free.So far they love it and hopefully it will prove to be good for them.A word to the wise for all pet people- PLEASE read customer reviews ( before you try out a new dog food) I read reviews about my last dog food and customers raved about the food when I first started them out on it 2 years ago.I read the reviews again just recently ( when my girls got so sick) and the reviews now convinced me to stop their food IMMEDIATELY.

  • Good food for dogs

    By on

    My dog can't eat food that is chicken based. So we spend a little more for better meat based foods. She loves Merrick foods.

  • Fantastic alternative for dogs with food sensitivities

    By on

    My dog has all sorts of food sensitivities- to most common meats (think beef turkey and chicken) and grains- even rice, potatoes, and sweet potatoes. I like to feed half Honest Kitchen and half kibble but it’s been a nightmare finding a kibble that fit his diet. This venison/chickpea formula fits all his requirements and he LOVES it.

  • Two Huskie Bothers

    By on

    My two huskie boys Dean and Sam love this food. I had them on Taste of the Wild ever since they were puppies, but last year they developed an allergy to potatoes so I had to change brands. And let me say how thankful I am that I finally found a place that handled a good quality brand of food with a special recipe that didn't have any potatoes at all. Thanks Merrick and Chewy for making and carrying this special recipe for my two special boys.

  • Good option for rotation

    By on

    My senior terrier has developed an intolerance to both foods I've been rotating. I switched to this & immediately noticed less itching & firmer stools. The reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is I agree with others about the cheap packaging - the bags are easily damaged & concern about loss of nutrients. I'm also not sure it deserves to be more expensive than other venison food with similar ingredients, but it does have less fat & protein, which is perfect for my dog's age.
