Feeding Instructions

Using the chart below, 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.

Puppies and pregnant or nursing females may consume two to three times the recommended daily amounts. 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 1/4 cup for every 3 oz. wet.

    It’s a Hit

    By on

    My girls loved it his food. They liked the small bite sized pieces and the extra little yummies dispersed throughout the food. It was a high hit AND grain free. We will definitely purchase this again

    Sassy loves this food.

    By on

    Our Morkie, named Sassy, loves the dog food. First she picks out, and eats, all the freeze-dried bites. Then on to the little pieces. It's her favorite. She's happy and healthy. We feel like we're providing a good quality food for her. We change up the flavors for variety...

    Merrick dog food

    By on

    My dog did not really like this dog food. I kept feeding it to him and made him finish it because I did not want to throw it out. He just was not fond of it at all.

    I just love chewy! I won’t get my dog supplies anywhere else! My girls did not like their previous several foods so I have been trying different things to get them to eat! I just received this food ... after three days of nearly no eating she finally ate a full 2 cups! They both love this food so much and chewy has the best customer service ever! Thank you!!

    Our dogs love this!

    By on

    Typically I get the normal Merrick dry food but one time I accidently bought this type. For dry food alone our dogs would snack on it or eat it throughout the evening. This stuff however, omg they love it. I've never seen them like a dry food as much as they like this. I will be getting this from now on.

    Watch out for the Lil' Freeze Dried Bits!

    By on

    My dog, a one year old Westie, LOVES this food! Now, if I could just figure out how to get her to stop eating all the little freeze dried bits first :)

    Love, this product.

    By on

    Our Frenchies love Merrick dog food. For an extra treat, we will occasionally buy the type with the freeze dried raw bites. They love the raw bites ( like we love those marshmallows in Lucky Charms) in this food. It is a good high protein dog food.

    He likes the chicken flavor better

    By on

    My little 7lb, 8 year old shihtzu/chihuahua is pretty picky. But I do like to give him some variety in his diet so he doesnt get bored. He gobbled up the chicken one eagerly, I think he really likes the raw bites the best and it enjoys the kibble bits too. I tried the beef one to give him more flavor, but hes not too keen on it, but will still eat it faster than some other foods I've tried.

    It's a winner!

    By on

    Our little lady loved the regular Texas beef flavor, but she was over joyed with the freeze dried bits. It's like marshmallows in your cereal! We have also seen a dramatic improvement in her skin and coat, and the size is perfect for her. Highly recommended!
