Feeding Instructions

Using the chart on the back of the package, divide the total cups per day by the total number of times you feed your dog per day to determine the portion size for each meal. Keep a clean bowl of fresh water available at all times. Every dog is a little different, so optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, size and activity level. Please use the information below as an initial recommendation only and adjust when needed. Dry and wet food in combination will help to increase the level of water in your dog's diet. If feeding with wet food, reduce dry amount by 1/2 cup for every 6 oz. of wet food.

    My dog (and cat) love it!

    By Jamie on Jul 29, 2021

    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

    By Hiphopbelle on Aug 1, 2021

    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

    By Monica on Jul 30, 2021

    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

    By Butterz on May 31, 2021

    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 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.

    Fantastic food

    By Jessi on May 28, 2021

    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 would recommend this food to other pet owners, due to the high quality kibble that you would be getting to feed you pet(s). … more

    Can’t get my dog to eat it

    By Kristi on Jul 19, 2021

    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

    By MomOfFur on May 31, 2021

    *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

    By NLlanos on Jun 8, 2021

    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!

    Pea, Lentil and Potato Free!

    By Daisy on May 19, 2021

    We're a little bit pickier about the food we feed our dog, so that's why I'm rating this dog food a 3 out of 5. It's pea, lentil and potato free- which is important to us. The second and fourth ingredients are meal though (chicken meal and turkey meal respectively- as well as dehydrated alfalfa meal) which we try to avoid higher amounts of. It's a decent food, especially for the price... and our dog seemed to enjoy it- she ate it right up. The smell also isn't bad, smells like dog food but not the weird smell you get with cheap foods. It's just not as quality or raw as we usually look for, but we also spend a little more on food. It seems like a great option depending on your dogs diet- especially We're a little bit pickier about the food we feed our dog, so that's why I'm rating this dog food a 3 out of 5.
