About Merrick Classic Dog Food
A Healthy Classic
Merrick Classic recipes bring good old-fashioned balanced, natural nutrition to your dog's bowl. Each blend is made with high-quality protein, whole grains, and farm-fresh fruits and vegetables to provide a natural food formula rich in nutrients that support the overall health and well-being of your dog. Recipes also feature a unique and healthy blend of whole grains—like the ancient grain quinoa—for a boost of fiber for optimal digestibility.
It Starts With Protein
Merrick Classic recipes start with real and wholesome USDA-inspected deboned meat, poultry or fish as the first ingredient. This means that your pet will get more wholesome protein with every meal. Quality protein provides the amino acids necessary for building strong muscles and a healthy metabolism.
Serve Up Balanced Nutrition
Dogs thrive on quality protein and healthy fats. To promote the overall health of your pet, Merrick Classic recipes feature a guaranteed balance of 50-60% meat, poultry or fish, 20-25% produce, vitamins and minerals, and 20-25% whole grains for a complete and balanced meal that will give your pup exactly what he needs. Merrick makes food to be fuel, not filler, and their balanced recipes ensure your pets enjoy every second of their dinner.
From Farm to Bowl
Following every protein are fresh fruits and vegetables, like sweet potatoes, blueberries and peas, for a complete and balanced recipe that will give your pup the nutrients he needs to live an active and healthy lifestyle. Only the finest, freshest ingredients are included in these flavorful blends that are harvested from trusted, local ranchers and farmers for quality and sustainability assurance.
If unavailable locally, Merrick pursues the best ingredients from around the world.
Benefits Worth Barking Over
Every recipe has high levels of omega-6 and 3 fatty acids that aid in healthy skin and coat, plus leading levels of glucosamine and chondroitin to foster healthy hips and joints. To support and improve healthy digestive function, each recipe includes highly digestible meat proteins. And you won’t find corn, wheat, soy or potatoes in any of Merrick Classic recipes.
Treat Your Pets Naturally
Merrick offers a variety of all-natural treats that are not only enticing for your pup, but also provide a nutritional boost to keep him on his A-game all day, every day. Perfect for training and rewarding dogs, these treats always feature real, deboned meat as the number one ingredient and never have any artificial preservatives or fillers. From natural bones that will clean your dog’s teeth and exercise his jaw, to protein-packed jerky treats, you’ll be sure to find the perfect treat for your good dog.
The Makings of a Meal Fit for Your Best Friend
Sweet Potatoes: Excellent source of complex carbs, vitamins, minerals, beta-carotene, and starch that converts easily into sugar for quick energy.
Blueberries: Loaded with vitamins C and E, healthy carbs, fiber and powerful antioxidants for immune system support and urinary tract health.
Quinoa: Unique, ancient whole grain that's full of amino acids and wholesome dietary fiber for maximum digestibility.
Salmon Oil: Contains long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, plus EPA and DHA for overall health and well-being.
Flaxseed Oil: Delivers the right amount of healthy fats from omega-3 and 6 fatty acids to provide energy and maintain healthy skin.
Merrick believes whole foods not only taste better, but are better for your pet, and handmade recipes are much better than scientific formulas. That's why Merrick's been making pet food in their own kitchen for more than 25 years. Produced in small batches, each recipe is closely monitored to ensure it delivers the perfect balance of nutrients guaranteed right on the label. Merrick makes food to be fuel, not filler, and their wide variety of protein-rich dry and canned foods and treats means your pet will enjoy every second of his meal.
My dogs love these treats. To me it smells really like southwest spices in Texmex food. Greyhounds aren't supposed to eat spicy foods. I did not see any side effects from them after the dogs ate them.

My two Catahoulas are not all that picky, in fact, I often have to remind them that sticks and leaves are not part of their diet, but they turned their noses up at these treats.
They love other Merrick products/treats, so I don't understand. I had to give them [the treats] to the neighbor. My dogs do have ultra sensitive stomachs but that wouldn't have prevented them from taking the treat from my hand. There must be some smell that is truly offensive...and the only thing I know either [dog] has a sensitivity/mild allergy to is cloves.
Just a heads up for those of you who have dogs like me that will basically take ANYTHING as a treat and be super happy. This was a shock.

I can't say enough about the Merrick brand. Our 13 week old lab was having very soft stools from a previous food brand and treat brand when our vet recommended Merrick. We switched him to Merrick food and treats and everything cleared up. He loves all the different flavors. These are really easy to break in half so they are a little bit smaller to use for training treats. The ingredients are also real food ingredients which is great for all size dogs.

I’m sorty we either didn’t order or they’re in my freezer and not their turn for a taste test with Luna. They are a Merrick product so my expectation are high. Luna likes the power bites. I’ll have to shop for something that has small bites like the Merrick Power Bites used to be half or 3/4 the size of what they used to be. Merrick power bites were being used as primarily training purposes. The smaller size is good for that. I’ll be glad to review the cowboy trays when they come to the top or freezer.

I bought these for my Grandpuppers and they absolutely love them! One is a Frenchie and he’s allergic to so many things but these he loves and didn’t have any bad reaction to. So big big time happy! So glad I tried them. Shipping was super fast, even came before it said it would, chewy is great to order from, they are friendly, knowledgeable and just Pawsome!

These treats are crunchy yet not too hard and they must taste good, because my boy who rarely eats crunchy treats, just love it a lot ! He eats it instantly then asks for more :) Im happy that both of my corgis really enjoy these !
My dogs love these!

I usually give my small senior dogs (yorkie, 10 yrs & havanese, 11 yrs) soft treats, but i decided to try these because I know Merrick is a good brand. They LOVE these treats. I actually call them cookies and they come running for them. They are a perfect size for my dogs and not too difficult for them to chew even with some missing teeth!
Good Company. Good Product. But Rejected By Libby.

I ordered these because my dog used to love this flavor of wet food but she really didn't care for these at all. She basically chewed it a few times then just dropped it. I felt good about giving them to her because I like Merrick but if my dog won't eat them then I have to say I wouldn't buy this item again.
Dogs like them, fun shapes

These are fun cowboy hat and boot-shaped biscuits! My dogs like them and I like the ingredients and trust the brand, so 5 stars! I prefer the smell of Merrick's "Grammy's Pot Pie" biscuits better (these smell a little like burnt toast)- but my opinion matters less than my dogs' and they like it!
My Poos Love Cowboy Cookout

My poos know these are a real treat. I buy Cowboy Cookout and Wingalings. Both are good ingredients that I can have confidence in. Not too big a treat / not too little that I have to give them more. Wish they could remove the 5th ingredient: Organic Cane Molasses. But it probably makes my poos love them.
