Merrick raw coated kimble

My two dogs loved this and I will order again. They are really fussy and took to it right away

My dog (and cat) love it!

As soon as I opened the bag I could tell my dog was excited about the smell. I couldn’t smell much, but he could. He enjoyed it, and so did the cat. Haha. Of course we feed her her own food, but she tried really hard to get into his. The food is not too hard, but not soft or mushy. The bites are small. This food has much better ingredients than some other dog foods. Note: I received this free for my honest review.

My boy Loved it

My boy biggie loved this food he was sent over in exchange for review. He was so excited he knew it was for him when I was opening the box. He had no trouble switching over from his regular food. Unfortunately, I can’t find it at my regular store but I’ll be looking out for it.

Mixed review

I received the Merrick freeze dried food free in exchange for a review. I can say that my one dog loved it and the other didn't care for it at all. It seems like a great food but only 50 percent loved it in my house so we will not be purchasing.

Mixed Bag review

My family of 3 rescue fluffernuggins got to try this Merrick Healthy Grains Raw-Coated Kibble Real Beef + Brown Rice Recipe free for our honest review. The ingredients listed are quality, and I like that it's raw coated kibble. The dog's were super excited to get this food out of the box! We transitioned for 3 days and the dog's had no problems switching foods. Two of three dogs are seniors and two out of three are picky. One picky eater really enjoyed this food, she seems to be more active and maybe a bit more bright eyed, The other senior she will eat anything so she especially loved this, thought it was a treat. The young picky eater started out loving this food, but ended up at the end of the bag taking forever to eat his food. So in general I'd recommend this for anyone looking to venture into the raw food market, but are a bit afraid of prices and going full raw.

Fantastic food

I received this food as a promotion, for a review of the product. I have 2 dogs, one a GSD mix and the other is a Siberian Husky. My GSD is not picky about his food at all and he loved this kibble, he was even trying to steal my husky bowl when he was done. My husky, however, can be a little picky when it comes to her food. She wouldn't eat more than a bite or 2 of the kibble plain, so I had to get creative and mix scrambled eggs into it for her. With the addition of the eggs she completely cleaned her bowl. I like the food because it is made with quality ingredients, so I know exactly what my dogs are eating. I didn't notice a smell coming from the food, that is any different than other high quality kibbles. If we only had our GSD I would consider getting this as his kibble, but since my Husky is a bit more difficult I will not be purchasing this to replace what they are already fed. I would recommend this food to other pet owners, due to the high quality kibble that you would be getting to feed you pet(s).

Can’t get my dog to eat it

I was so excited when I saw that Merrick had freeze dried raw food. I love their products for both my dog and cats. Unfortunately I can’t get my dog to eat this food. I’m sure it’s great but my picky eater won’t give in and Ive been trying for a good while.

wanted to like it

*received a bag as a sample to review* I wanted my pup to like this. It sounded beneficial to his health. But as soon as I poured it out I was dubious as the boring looking little brown squares had zero smell. They seemed pretty hard, but I'm not a dog so I thought he might go for it anyways. Well, he did..sort of. I did a half mix of new and his normal food. He picked all the normal out and left the new stuff. I tried pouring a little chicken broth over to entice him. Nope. To be fair, I do have a picky dog who can't believe he doesn't get filet mignon daily, but he wouldn't even taste this stuff.

Perfect for my dog

My dog absolutely loved this food. When I would feed her I would put this food down and her previous food and she would always go to the Merrick Raw Food bowl! I also noticed that this food doesn't smell like the others I have purchased for her (I can actually smell this one without being grossed out by the smell). My dog has also had a boost of energy and has been wanting to play more and not been laying around. This is such a great product for my dog!
