  • Wow is all I can say

    I have two bischon mixes who are 7 and 9 and have always been picky. One is diabetic and hated his vet food so I got the Merrick Weight Management which both of them loved. I received got the lil plates dry dog food to mix with it and they both gobble it up, which shocks me since I cooked for them for three years until Simon became diabetic. I have no problems with the Lil plates dry and wet and even the wet large cans in the chicken flavors they both go to town own. They are happy and eat twice a day without any problems at all. And Chewy is the best. My order is at my door in less than 24 hours. Hope Chewy is always around as well as the Merrick Lil Plates. You guys rock

  • Picky Dog LOVES this food!

    By on

    I have a very picky chihuahua- who will actually pick out the pieces of dry food she likes and spits out the pieces she doesn't like. It was very difficult finding a dry food she actually liked. I finally found one and then it was discontinued. So then we ended up trying Merrick on some friends advice....We went through the transition period of mixing both foods so my furbaby can get used to the change in food....well out the door that went! She didn't eat any of the "old" food that she previously would only eat, she picked it out of the bowl and spit on floor- to ONLY eat the Merrick pieces!! YaYY!! We have found our new food!!

  • Merrick is the best

    By on

    I feed our dog both Blue Divine and Merrick Lil Plates. With Blue no longer making a straight Turkey in the Divine stew line, I have switched him over to Merrick Lil' Plates in both dry and wet. They had a full line, and it includes turkey and surf and turf.
