While away for a few days, my parents were looking after my Pit/Dalmation Diana. She gets the adult version of the same food but it appears my parents had bought this version and have been giving it to her thinking it was the same. Is it the same food essentially but smaller Kibble?
Answer by ChewyNov 03, 2017
The nutritional information for the Merrick Lil' Plates Grain-Free Real Chicken + Sweet Potato Recipe Small Breed Dry Dog Food and the Merrick Grain-Free Real Chicken + Sweet Potato Recipe Dry Dog Food are the same. The difference would be the size of the kibble.

Is Derrick lil plates healthy for my 10 month old shih tzu?
Answer by ChewySep 16, 2018
This recipe is formulated for all small breed adult dogs.

My dog is HIGHLY allergic to pork. Is the gelatin in this food pork-based?
Answer by ChewyNov 13, 2020
The gelatin in Merrick formulas is pork based.

I noticed that my 12 lb bag nuggets are smaller and a different shape than the 4 lb bag. Has Merrick changed the formula too. ?
Answer by ChewyJun 16, 2020
Merrick Lil' Plates Grain-Free Real Chicken & Sweet Potato Dry Dog Food has not had a recent formula change.

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.

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.

Love anything Merrick

All of my Shelties love this dry food! I work with a Sheltie Rescue in CA, adopting and fostering them. It has made a difference in their overall health and thick coats! I also add a scoop of Merrick or Wellness can food on top, to make it even tastier! I have neighborhood stray cats that I feed the kitty version, and the difference is remarkable! It’s healthy for them, too, with lots of vitamins and minerals. Very satisfied with the results!

dogs hair turned brown

Overall my dog Princess eats this food, she likes it. But for some reason the fur on her face turns all brown after she eats, she has white fur on her face. It's hard to wash off and right after she eats her face is all brown again. Definitely will be changing back to the beef after this.
