Feeding Instructions

New Formulation:

Using the chart below, divide the total cups per day by the total number of times you feed your dog per day to determine the portion size for each meal. Keep a clean bowl of fresh water available at all times. Every dog is a little different, so optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, size and activity level. Please use the information below as an initial recommendation only and adjust when needed. Dry and wet food in combination will help to increase the level of water in your dog's diet. If feeding with wet food, reduce dry amount by 1/2 cup for every 6 oz. of wet food.

About Merrick Limited Ingredient Diet Dog Food

The Limited Ingredient Diet That's More Limited

The Limited Ingredient Diet That's More Limited

When you have a sensitive pup, finding the right food can be tricky. That's why Merrick made a limited ingredient diet with the fewest possible ingredients—less than other natural L.I.D foods on the market. Each meal is free of grains, corn, soy, dairy and eggs, plus made with a single-source animal protein. It's the nutrition you'd expect from Merrick, but with carefully selected ingredients.

8 Key Ingredients

In each bowl of Merrick Limited Ingredient Diet, your best bud will get the nutrition she needs from the most essential ingredients—eight of them, to be specific. Every recipe is made with only eight key ingredients, plus vitamins and minerals, to give your dog the optimal nutrition she deserves while avoiding common allergens.

8 Key Ingredients

Single Protein, Optimal Nutrition

Merrick Limited Ingredient Diet formulas keep it naturally simple with a single source of deboned animal protein—so every meal is easier to digest. Choose between savory recipes like salmon, turkey, lamb, chicken or duck. And when Merrick says lamb, they mean lamb—so you can avoid the proteins that upset your pup's tummy. It's more of what your pet needs and less of what they don’t.

Grain Free and Potato Free for Sensitive Pets

Merrick sticks to what's important and leaves out those unnecessary ingredients many dogs are sensitive to—like grains, potatoes, corn, soy, dairy and eggs. Instead, they pack their recipes with meaningful carbohydrates that support healthy digestion, plus a range of important vitamins, minerals and fatty acids needed to support the overall well-being of your best friend.

Grain Free and Potato Free for Sensitive Pets

The Makings of a Meal Fit for Your Best Friend

Lentils: An excellent source of protein, zinc, iron and fiber—plus, they offer additional protein for healthy lean muscle.

Peas: Contains twice the protein of most vegetables, and is a good source of vitamins A, C and some B-complex vitamins.

Organic Alfalfa: Rich source of calcium and serves as a good source of fiber, vitamins and carotene.

Yucca Schidigera Extract: Supplies good quantities of iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, selenium and silicon, and is thought to reduce stool and urine odors.

About Merrick

Merrick believes whole foods not only taste better, but are better for your pet, and handmade recipes are much better than scientific formulas. That's why Merrick's been making pet food in their own kitchen for more than 25 years. Produced in small batches, each recipe is closely monitored to ensure it delivers the perfect balance of nutrients guaranteed right on the label. Merrick makes food to be fuel, not filler, and their wide variety of protein-rich dry and canned foods and treats means your pet will enjoy every second of his meal.
