Our rescue shih tzu loves this on her dry food as a topper.
While the food quality is better than 1 star I am giving it 1 star because after reading reviews a lot of people seem to have a similar experience to me but are still giving the food 3-4 stars. I was excited for my dog to try this as I really want more fish in his diet and I thought the beef would entice him to eat. However he is completely turned off by it. I mix it with his normal food and now he wont eat. I have to mix treats and canned chicken with it in order for my dog to even touch it. He is a picky eater and would rather starve then eat something he doesnt like. Back to the drawing board.
I’ve been feeding my dog a home cooked diet made with a supplement for a year and a half. With her digestive sensitivities, Merrick Surfin and Turfin is the closest to her current recipe I could find among commercial foods. Still transitioning, but have been surprised at how much she continues to enjoy this food after eating fresh. Her digestion so far has been good. Also, I don’t think it smells fishy. It’s actually not too offensive for a wet dog food.
I want a high quality food in a tray to top dry food. I’m honestly not sure or confident in the quality of this product line. Some seem to feel it’s great. Others seem less convinced. My one dog seems to love it, the other dog not so much.
At first, they loved it. They ate it quickly. Then they turned their nose to it. They miss their Dainty Duck!!!!
Duke has always enjoyed the little plates, but this variety may be his new favorite.
The best thing this dog food has going for it is the packaging. Once opened, be prepared for grey sludge with bad smell. Also, my dog has itched himself to hotspots and hairless as I tried to switch him to an all Merrick grain free diet with Merrick senior grain free dry food and wet food supplement. I'm now switching him back to Purina pro plan.
Our dogs love fish. We mix this with their kibble and they go crazy!
I have had a very difficult time finding something that little Yorkies will eat, happily. Not only that but digestive issues have always been an issue if I try to change their diet. Merrick‘s Lil Plates line of food, offers a variety of tastes and if done right,, no digestive issues. I have tried cooking their food, feeding them Raw food and have had nothing but digestive issues and their refusal to eat, after a short period of time. The nice thing about these Lil Plates is the variety and the very small kibble bites. I really don’t love feeding Kibble but I found that my dogs are grazers and they don’t eat their food right away. They’ll go back an hour later and eat a little bit more. I couldn’t leave meat out for very long, so the kibble is good for that reason. I feed them the wet food morning and night and I put out a plate of kibble for them to nibble on throughout the day. So far I’m ecstatically happy with this line of food. I have ordered the case of variety wet food, a case of the salmon wet food and a large bag of the kibble
My picky dog did not even go near this. He loves all the other Merrick li’l plate flavors that I’ve bought in the past. I was excited about having him try this one but he took one sniff and didn’t go near it again.
