Questions & Answers

7 Customer Questions


What is the carbohydrate count for this food?
Answer by ChewyMay 31, 2022
This recipe contains Carbs: 31.58% (As Fed) and Carbs: 34.70% (Dry Matter.)

Is the actual size of the kibble that if a pea? Or larger? Thanks!
Answer by ChewyMar 27, 2021
The kibble size will be 1 cm in diameter. The kibble sizing will be standard across all of Merrick recipes with the exception of Small Breed and Large Breed recipes.

Can this be safely stored at room temperature? Or does it need to be kept cold?
Answer by ChewyJun 03, 2022
This food does not require refrigeration. Ideally, dry food and treats should be consumed within 6-8 weeks of opening the bag. Exposure to air, light, hot temperatures and humidity speeds up the rate at which foods degrade. To limit these effects, keep dry foods in their original packaging and store in a cool, dry location away from direct sunlight.

Is the kibble itself actually freeze dried or is it just the coating.
Answer by ChewyMay 10, 2022
The freeze dried coating is the only thing freeze dried, so the kibble will not be freeze dried.

All the flavors are fan favorites

My 3 year old Great Dane was turning her nose up at her raw diet. I added the Merrick raw coated kibble and she eats every last bite! I have a 9 year old Golden/Rottie mix that I switched over to raw and he loves this too. Really glad to have found a high quality raw coated WITH GRAINS.

dogs love it

My senior dog was refusing to finish the food he was getting and when I replaced it with this he now enthusiastically eats it all. I just hope it's healthy. I have no idea.

Picky eater

My dog is a ridiculously picky eater and I've switched through a lot of foods a lot of foods for her. She has nibbled at this kibble but she's never emptied out the bowl. I do have another dog that I watch and they seemed to really like this food so I just gifted it to their owner iinstead.

Yummy with a mixer!

Bella received this product for "free" for testing purposes.  I love the ingredients are real without fillers that make Bella throw up! The smell was not too bad especially compared to her other food she is used to. I did have to add some gravy or wet food for her to eat it, but I usually have to do that with her regular food as well. Overall I’m impressed with the quality and would recommend this food to others!

Silky Terrier May Be Related To David Lee Roth

Our Silky Terrier (like everyone else's, I'm certain) is pretty picky when it comes to the food in his food bowl. ...No, like. Really...he will pick individually colored morsels (he really dislikes green) out of his bowl and move them straight to the floor. At any given time, you can count a pile of green morsels laying just near his food bowl. He may be related to David Lee Roth. I say all that to say this: He likes it! It's just the right size for his breed, weight, and age...and he freakin' likes it. Wow. AND...we have noticed that his physique is leaner and more defined. So...again, he likes it...AND IT'S OBVIOUSLY HEALTHY!! HUGE HIT FOR THIS HARD TO PLEASE ROCKSTAR!! Merrick's (Real Salmon + Brown Rice Recipe) is one that we will continue to stock and serve to our finicky rockstar terrier!

AMAZED by my dogs reaction....

I have a 10 yr old Coton de Tulear who is VERY food motivated and would eat a 20lb bag of dog food in one sitting if I left it out. My dogs biggest issue is he has a very sensitive stomach, he is nervous, and has dietary indiscretion and he swallows food hole due to doggie dental decay and he has had 15 teeth pulled (dogs don't need teeth to eat). First feeding for Liam aka Blanco aka Slim I was shocked and elated and videotaped because I knew Liams human Dad would not believe me when I described Liams response. I tried buying little bitty kibble but Liam choked on it. Merrick Freeze Dried Raw Coated Salmon Kibble is the FIRST and ONLY food that my dog has CHEWED. I normally would slowly switch my dogs food so as not to cause upset. Liam normally would eat a cup of dog food in 1.5 to 2 minutes. And he would act like he never ate. Merrick Freeze Dried Raw Coated Salmon he chewed, he swallowed, he did NOT vomit (normal for him switching food) and NO diarrhea or accidents due to food switch. This food is abt double the cost of the last food he was eating. (abt 5$ a lb vs 2$ a lb) BUT worth every penny for my dogs DENTAL and CARDIAC health and will save me $$$$$$ in the long term. My dogs last dental cleaning and 15 teeth pulled was almost 1k dollars. I ran up to our local General type store and they didn't carry Merrick so I will order on Chewy. I received this kibble free in exchange for my honest feedback. I would recommend this product to any pet owner that loves their dog and wants to keep them healthy.

My dogs like it

I received this as a sample and this is my review. My 2 pit bulls get tired of their normal food. By time you get to the bottom of the bag they are over it and the bowls take forever to empty. It doesn't matter what food it is. These 2 gobble it up with this food mixed in. If they are happy I'm happy.

High Quality dog food

y dog is very picky but has liked this food a lot. The kibbles are small which is perfect for her. I think she really likes the coating of the freeze dried raw salmon. It’s flavoring but good for the dog, not some artificial mess. I would recommend for small dogs and dogs that are picky eaters. It is kind of expensive but I like that it is a high quality food.

Not for my girl

I was hoping my dog would like this but she unfortunately didn’t. I did like that the kibble was small but not sure what about it didn’t appeal to her

My 16 year old furry friend loved this!

My 16 year old shitzu is pretty picky especially when it comes to hard dog food. But when it came to this brand for some reason it wasn’t as much of a hassle to get her to eat it! It seemed like she was quite enjoying it!! I also love that Merrick is made with higher quality ingredients so I know my pup is getting all her vitamins and nutrients.
