Another Merrick flavor I like

I like Merrick. After trying the beef, I thought I'd try giving my two Chihuahuas the Chicken and Sweet Potato Recipe. They like it as much, if not more than the beef.

Dog says "delicious!"

This food is small bites and perfect for tiny and small dogs to use as training bites. My dog is eager to learn with this food as a reward.

Loved by all

My three little dogs loved this flavor and scarfed it down. I never have to call them twice with Merrick Li’l Plates. And I feel better knowing it’s grain free and good for them.

Changed ingredients runny eyes

Our dog has a sensitive stomach and can't even eat treats wo being sick and we were so excited to find this food and it kept her in shape, pure muscle and low fat for many years but they have changed the ingredients a couple times since they were bought and now our dog has more number two's and in a lot more quantity (sign of added fillers) and constantly has runny eyes and this all happened within a day of changing to the new bag and I read the ingredients and noticed difference otherwise it looks pretty similar so this was a sneaky change to the recipe last year and I'm just so disappointed. We finished the large bag of merrick but it was unpleasant then we switched to wellness and it's a little better but I wish they'd offer the classic recipe I'd pay more.

My dogs like it

The food is tiny round bits and there's no smell. It's in a nice sturdy bag. I mixed it in with their regular food for a couple days before going straight Merrick's and they liked it.
