Any updates on why this food is out of stock?

Since this is raw chicken how do you store it!
Answer by ChewyOct 08, 2019
This food does not contain raw ingredients. This recipe features a grain-free kibble and freeze-dried raw pieces. Freeze-dried raw bites lock in fresh taste and deliver nutrients in a pure, easy-to-digest state for dogs to enjoy. This food can be stored in a cool, dry place.

Do you have bigger bags then 4 pounds.
Answer by ChewyOct 07, 2019
This recipe is offered in the 4 pound bag and in the 10 pound bag.

Can you soak them in water to make them softer?
Answer by ChewyAug 14, 2019
To moisten and enhance the flavor of the pet food, just take about a ¼ cup of filtered water and add it to the top of the bowl of kibble.

Picky eater approved

My male Boston terrier (rescue) is a picky eater but ever since we changed to Merrick he goes to his bowl an hour before "dinner" time and paws his bowl. He especially likes the Lil' Plates with freeze-dried raw. He has gained 2lbs since switching to Merrick (he is 20lbs); I no longer have to trick him into eating his food!

Lucky Charms for Puppies

My Mugsie is a picky eater. At 13 years young, he certainly lets me know how he feels about what I’m feeding him. When I put this down for breakfast, he ate all the freeze dried pieces before he ate the kibble. Just like how my kids eat all the marshmallows first in their Lucky Charms. My Tiffany just devours it. Thank you from my 2 satiated Shi Tzus.

My Shih-Tzu won’t eat it :-(

I really hoped my picky Shih-Tzu would eat this, but she only picks a few flavored pieces out and leaves the rest.

My Picky Eater

My little 8 year old - 12 pound shihtzu / bichon mix has a sensitive stomach and is a very picky eater. She also has a bad back and hips. So I was looking for something that would be healthier for her and that she would actually eat. We switched a few time because of recalls and she would eat other food but not every day. Somedays she wouldn't eat at all. She loves this stuff. I feed her twice a day and she licks the bowl clean every meal. I feel she is a little spunkier and her stomach issues have been very minimal. We love Merrick.

I tried my old brand,but chunks too big, had grains, I mixed it w/gravy to use it up,!tried this 4#,she loves both the Beef or Chicken! Eats 1/4 in the morning then eats the rest at supper...her coat is softer now too! have switched to 10#bag! Thank You Thank You.

Great food!

I have an extremely picky eater! My dog is 5 years old and over four of those years I couldn’t find a food he really liked. Around a year ago, I heard of Merrick , and looked into the ingredients and nutrition and liked what I saw, but the biggest concern was, would my dog eat it? He’s loves it, he actually finishes the food in his bowl, something that never happened with other foods.

My lil' pals love it....

I make my own dog food and I use this brand to help extend it but they love it by itself.
