The food is manufactured in the USA but where do the ingredients come from? Are the ingredients strictly from USA?
Answer by ChewyJul 03, 2019
Merrick crafts their recipes with the world's best ingredients from the best producers. Most of their ingredients come from the USA, however, in certain circumstances some ingredients may come from another country (like lamb from New Zealand) to ensure the highest quality possible. Each and every ingredient must meet Merrick’s own rigorous quality standards. Ingredients are tested upon arrival, samples are tested throughout production, and all pet food is tested before its released for sale.

I put water on it to see if anything would come to the surface and it looked bad.

Not great taste

My two Shih Tzu’s turned their nose up to it. Tried for a week even mixed in with old food and it didn’t help.

small bites

I have two rescue dogs. One of my dogs have had 26 teeth pulled due to neglect. This is the smallest little B that I can find and I take it container and add a little bit of water and keep that in the refrigerator just to soften for her and mixed with a meat and vegetable mixture. She also will eat it dry bless her heart I have found that Merrick is a very good brand dog food

Tasty Nuggets- No Mess

My dog immediately loved this food, which is not very common for her. I look for limited ingredient dog food because she tends to have allergies and can be picky. Finding one she likes is important. But the big bonus is these nuggets don’t create the dust her last brand did!
