Questions & Answers

22 Customer Questions

Hello, the food says made in the USA but where do the ingredients get sourced from please? Thank you.
Answer by ChewyAug 07, 2018
Merrick crafts their recipes with the freshest, highest quality ingredients available. Most of Merrick's ingredients come from the USA, however, in certain circumstances some ingredients may be sourced from China due to availability. 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 they release it for sale.

How many cups are in this 25lb bag?
Answer by ChewyNov 24, 2017
There are roughly 16 cups of kibble in the 4 pound bag, roughly 48 cups in the 12 pound bag and roughly 100 cups in the 25 pound bag.

What size is the kibble?
Answer by ChewySep 14, 2018
The kibble is approximately the size of a green pea, with flatter edges.

In the description it says Leading levels of chondroitin and glucosamine foster healthy hips and joints. But in the guaranteed analysis list it only lists the glucosamine ????
Answer by ChewyJun 22, 2018
The Glucosamine and the Chondroitin levels are the same, being at 1200mg.

Quality and no Farts!

Our two Dalmatians love this food, their coats and energy are even better than no more silent-but-deadlies! I ordered it Sunday afternoon and had it next day. Great service!

Satisfied dog

My picky dog turned down one dog food after another. This is the only dog food she will eat. Thank you for a quality product.

Super delivery!

Our senior pet tolerates this food very well. However, obtaining this in the smaller bags is almost impossible. Chewy came through for us. Not only was it in the size we wanted but was shipped rapidly so we were not without! Super pleased.

So very happy

My 10yo pit mix has some digestive issues from an infection when she was a pup so finding the right food is tricky. We were eating another food for a few years until they changed their formualtion/suppliers and all of a sudden she couldn't have a solid bm, for 2 months! A trip to the vet and $$ later she is healthy just needs more fiber in her diet, okay, let the search begin again. A vet tech recommended Merrick and we could not be happier. She loves the food, it smells like actual food, and gobbles it up. Her poops have never looked healthier, for the first time in 10 years, solid, good color, consistent! I have to admit I thought the grain free thing was just another fad, but she has put on the weight she lost, shiny coat, and is frankly acting like a puppy again. We are so very happy we found this food!

Definitely good.

My dog is now enjoying what I believe to be a much superior food than anything I have tried before. My dog can't wait to eat his meals. If you check the container that the food is kept in, you won't find any crumbs or tiny bits of food. The food is only pure ingredients.

Good, nutritious food

My dog likes this food a lot, but the kibble is too small. I got a slow feed dog dish and mixed this food with another grain free brand that has larger pieces. Wally was eating so fast that he was choking and couldn’t breath. It was scary. The kibble is too small for a 100 lb hound dog, but he really likes the taste of it.

Subbed for the small breed version with is out of stock forever!

Seems to be just fine for my little guys! They don't seem to care what size the bits are! I am hoping it contains the same ingredients.

Wish she liked it

Was hoping all the good reviews would lead to an excellent choice for my Papillon, unfortunately she doesn't seem to care for it. She prefers the Hills diet which I believe is a good healthy choice. Sometimes good for you means you don't want it!

Picky dog approved

My dog is about 12 yrs old, weighs 8 pounds, and generally doesn't have much interest in dog food. Enter Merrick Healthy Grains. Not sure what sort of sorcery this dog food holds, but she decided it is worth gobbling up. Now time to put some meat on her old bones! Would definitely recommend! I recieved a complementary sample in exchange for my honest review.
