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.

    My girl loves this food!

    By on

    My Morkie absolutely loves this food, especially the freeze dried raw bits. The size of the kibble is just right for her. She definitely prefers this flavor combo over other Merrick dry food combinations. I love and trust Merrick’s quality for my dog.

    Not worth the difference in price

    By on

    I have been using this same food without the freeze dried raw bites. There is not enough of the freeze dried kibbles in this food to justify the difference in price. The freeze dried bites are very sparse in the food. I was very disappointed. I cook chicken breasts and chop them and freeze them then add it to my dog's food. I thought this would work instead. It doesn't. I love Merrick and Love Chewy's service but I will go back to the other Lil Plates without the freeze dried bites. My dog eats both foods well.

    Yorkie approved

    By on

    My 5-year old Yorkie is an extremely picky eater. I’ve been through several premium kibble brands and so far she is a big fan of this one. Chicken is her favorite meat so the raw bites are like candy for her! She goes back for the kibble which is super tiny and easy for her to eat. Hopefully she will continue to like it and I will continue to buy. Can’t beat the shipping speed or price buying it here!

    Picky Pups

    By on

    When I introduced this new flavor my dogs were not crazy about it, but over several days they adjusted to it and now give big body wags when I say it's dinner time!

    My pups love this stuff!

    By on

    I have been feeding my dogs Merrick for several years now. I have done a ton of research on dog food and in my opinion, Merrick Lil' Plates is the best stuff on the market for our little friends. The new freeze dried pieces mixed in with the kibble is an absolute hit at our house! My girls have always been free feeders and it might take them all day to eat the food I give them in the morning. That's not the case with this new food, they gobble it up right away. Very happy with our purchase and will be buying again!

    always buy Merrick

    Good quality, grain free..dogs eat it. My dogs are little and picky. Have bought other brands and have had to give it away to other unpicky dog food eaters.

    No Peas Please

    By on

    My two shihtzus were not fans of this new concoction. They always gobble their Lil Plates so when I saw something new with the freeze dried raw peas, I thought they would love it. Nope! They look in their dishes and walk away. Neither Miki Moto and Stryker will not touch this. We are going back to our original Lil Plates and both shihtzus say, "No Peas Please!"

    Great for smaller size pups...

    By on

    My cocker spaniel at 20# prefers this food because of the chunks of freeze-dried chicken mixed in with the kibble. I have tried several brands and serveral varieties of Merrick but this is the one that she likes the best!
