    I thought I would try something new, so I got this for my twin Pomeranians and they gobbled it down. They like it so much I came back to Chewy and ordered a bigger bag this time. The twins are happy!

  • great customer service!

    By on

    first of all i contacted customer service through email and that was pointless always call if something is wrong.my bag of food was shipped open and half empty and i let them know that and they immediately send another bag. if this wouldnt have gotten fixed they would have lost a loyal customer. but i will continue my purchases here. thanks chewy! also the prices arent the best for food only when you do autoship.i do love my babys and they deserve the best so i will continue to purchase.

    My 2 little men do not like this too much. I made the mistake and ordered a large bag. I cook their food every day sweet potato, brussel sprouts and real turkey legs, however I still give them dry dog food for their teeth. But I think the kibbles are too big and they just do not like the taste. Merrick products are great but this one is not for my boys.

  • My cavalier loves this food

    By on

    I have a cavalier King Charles spaniel that struggled to transition from the Merrick Grain Free Puppy (chicken) to the adult merrick chicken dry food. The vet suggested I swap meats and he LOVED IT. And wonderful efficient Chewy shipping!
