Most of Merrick's ingredients come from the USA, however, in certain circumstances some ingredients (Vitamin B) may be sourced from China due to availability.

You Can't Like Everything (almost)

Unfortunately, my Gracy, a Red Deer Chihauhau, didn't care for this particular Dinner.

This is a favorite!

I mix one of these in with the Merrick dry food and my dog Max loves it! So lil bites can be used for not so little dogs too.

Great addition to Merrick kibble

I used to feed my pug just kibble, then I started home-making all his food. But when that got to be too much work/time, and I tried to switch back to just kibble, he wasn't having it. This Merrick Lil' Plates stew (and the other flavors) are a game-changer. He loves it (and eats all the kibble mixed in too). I split one of these per day over his Merrick kibble (morning and night) so it doesn't get too expensive. You can see the real food (peas, meat, etc.) in it which is awesome!

OMG!!! The Best!

Zoe loves this! She refuses to eat anything else. My problem with soft food has always been the smell. This does not have a strong smell at all. It’s a win win for us both!

Love this food

I feed both my dogs this. 1 is 11yrs old and wouldn’t eat the food that she had all her life, but she looks forward to dinner time with this food and she’s more active! 1 is 9 months old and she loves this food!
