Crafted in Hereford, Texas and cooked in the US, these recipes include whole foods and probiotics in the dry kibble.
The Merrick story began over 30 years ago and their main goal has always been to make the best pet food possible. They use premium ingredients from real, whole foods, combining them to create nutrient-rich recipes that make a difference in how your pet looks and feels. Merrick is all about staying true to their roots, so they still handcraft recipes in the original Hereford, Texas kitchen where Garth Merrick started the company. They also partner with organizations that share their love of pets.
I have 2 GSP and 1 Toy fox terrier mix , the terrier is a senior & has a hard time chewing so kibble is not for her any more . My daughter feeds these lil plates to her 3 small dogs so I stole some of her food to see if my terrier Rona would like them & she loves them . I do not feed her chicken and was shocked that there are 4 different lil plates that do not contain chicken so that is a big plus . I have been feeding her one in the morning & one at night , I give her a different cup of these lil plates with each feeding and these are small bites & soft & very moist perfect for Rona I did notice her stools are smaller & just perfect . Rona still is active as to why she eats two a day she just has bad teeth and loosing teeth , we do not know her age since she was found roaming in WV while we were on vacation . We have her 7 years now so vet thinks she might be around 12 .
I just got Gracy 2 mos ago and are trying to find things she likes. Not easy since she is allergic to chicken products.
This is a good quality food but my dog is extremely picky so sometimes he eats it sometimes not
Neither of my dogs would eat any of the flavors I bought for them. I mixed it with other foods they liked but no go. It sure looked good but my two Yorkie/Terrier mixes wouldn't touch it
Will not purchase again. My dog hates it and it was quite pricey.
Dogs really like them, and I like the ingredients.
With three picky dogs, this one they all seem to enjoy
My little girl is very picky but she loves Lil' Plates Grain-Free Teeny Texas Steak Tips.
I mix a quarter of each Lil Plate with a third of a cup of Royal Canin for my 10-pound Shih Tzu twice a day. She really enjoys Lil Plates with her kibble.
My dog absolutely loves this food. Since I can no longer get his old food I’d decided to stay with this food.
