    Best food from the greatest company

    By Katie on Sep 11, 2020

    Merrick's lamb and sweet potato dry food has worked wonders on my 10 year old Dachshund's coat and skin. She's trimmed her weight down and has a lot more energy since I switched her over to Merrick products. Her skin and fur is so healthy looking now and her coat shines and has gotten soft again. I am so happy that I found this food. I've shared this food with several friends whose dogs had dull coats and itchy skin. And they've noticed the difference too. Thank you Merrick for caring as much as I do.

    One proud Mom!

    By CMGS717 on Jun 24, 2019

    Hi, bought the Merricks Lamb & sweet potatoe for my Chi mix. She is 14 yrs old, has sensitive stomach and allergy issues. I was previously feeding her Blue Buffalo Lamb. When I received the Merricks, I mixed the 2 together as recommended. Well "Bambi" picked out all the Merrick food and ate it! She left the Buffalo behind. Then I knew! She loves this stuff. Bought a small bag because I wasn't sure she would like it. Looks like we're gonna need a "Bigger Bag"! Thank you Chewy!

    My Mini Goldendoodle loves this food

    By Mindy on Jun 14, 2019

    My dog is a very picky eater and he absolutely loves the Merrick Lamb and Sweet Potato Kibble. His coat is soft and shiny and he doesn't dump it all over the floor! I really like the hook and loop closure on the bag, except that it does start to peel away from the bag after a few uses.

    Headline was misleading

    By Good on May 25, 2019

    Although the product itself is amazing and my dogs love it, the kibble is actually for “small breeds” and this was not what I needed for my GSD. Wish the label on the website was more clear.

    New Cereal

    By Benji on Nov 20, 2018

    We changed our dry dog food to Merrick's lil Plates real lamb dry food two days ago. Our dog enjoyed it from the start and eats it up! He (we) enjoy the small bites making it easy to eat since he is a small Havanese. We'll continue this food and try other Merrick varieties over time. Impressed so far.
