Not the same food as before

Been buying Lil Plates Thanksgiving a few years now. My little dog refuses to eat it now, even my large dog, who's a foodie, refused it. It now has a different consistency and smells funny. I tried for a few days, then just threw the rest out. I will not buy again, you should not have changed it.

why did this change?

I don’t know what happened with this item but it went from a nice chunk to a pate my dog refuses to eat. Makes me sad because she really liked it when I got it from the local pet store. Might just donate the rest to a shelter because it’s too expensive to just throw out.

My Dogs Seem to Love It

My Chihuahua loves this brand and eats about 2/3 of it before she's full. She's less than 5 lbs. My other dog, who is a Pitbull mix loves to gobble the remaining up. I originally bought this because my Chihuahua didn't seem interested in eating the hard/dry food we put out. It's so good, our cat sometimes like to pick through it if we set it down on the table.

our Frenchies love it!

We raise French Bulldogs and I have tried many different foods and I always come back to Merrick! We use the lamb kibble with these added in for dinner we do half a can per dog and they love it. Using Merrick our dogs shine from the inside out.

She loves it

I tried many, many different brands of wet food for my 14 year old (adopted a year ago). She has irritable bowel syndrome and other foods did not help her. THIS food has! She now has normal poos and feels so much better, she has pep in her and eats every bite! I am so happy that I finally found something she likes, and that has helped her medical issue.

Different than larger canned food

My picky husky LOVES the Thanksgiving Day Dinner 12oz cans so I bought him the 3oz version because its easier for storage. However, he refuses to eat these lil plates. It even looks different (looks blan) in comparison to the larger canned food. What a bummer.

Great food!

I feed Katie this and all the other flavors of Lil Plates. She loves them and her sensitive stomach is much better than with any other food.

Give These A Try

I’m now caring for a 13 year old toy poodle who’s not enjoying her food anymore at all, dry food that I usually mix with a teaspoon of water 1/4 cup morning and evening. Just not showing interest in eating except treats of course, past couple weeks. I tried mixing in peanut butter which worked just once. If I mix people food in she eats absolutely with no problem at all but even that depends what it is I mix in like seems to need to be pretty gourmet lately. I ordered these after reading through the reviews and to my surprise they arrived super fast in less than 48hrs and I figure I’ll get away with mix in of these which she absolutely loved and scarfed her food down instantly. Switching to just these would be wonderful in her very old picky age but so expensive, really they are. I’m thinking if she actually loves these that a spoon mixed in per feeding with her dry food and should be a container used every 3 meals so about a tablespoon worth mixed in each meal is about how small these containers are. One container should last 3 feedings stored in the refrigerator once opened. I highly recommend as a mix in if you’re dealing with a picky small dog or feel free to use as a complete meal if your budget allows. So far it’s working for us.

Happy Chihuahua

I have a rescue chihuahua that is almost 16 years old. She seems to be tired of the food she's been eating for the past 7 years. I bought these and she loves it. She has always been a very picky eater, but I have no trouble getting her to eat this.

Didn't work as substitute

My dog has IBD. He eats a small amount of the Chicken Pot Pie version of Lil' Plates every day, but it has been unavailable everywhere I have searched. I tried this as a substitute and he got very sick.
