  • Dog loves it; I love it.

    By on

    First of all, great service from Chewy. They've not disappointed and I am thinking about signing up for autoship now that I know my dog tolerates this diet as proved over time. (Diarrhea and atopic dermatitis are her villains,) This food allows her a perfect stool and she doesn't crazy itch on top of the allergy medication she has on a monthly basis as she has with other foods and products with food flavors. Of course I recommend as it's good for my dog.

  • He likes it

    By on

    I decided to give Benji a change, I always give him Merrick Healthy Weight because it is low in fat which he needs for his pancreatitis and he likes that and it has kept his pancreatitis totally under control, but I added a little Merricks Limited Ingredient just for some variety and he loves it! Benji is a mini Schauzer, who used to be very sensitive to the touch of a certain area on his side, in fact he would screech with the pain, we see a huge improvement !

  • Good food for our allergy prone dog!

    By on

    We have a 45 pound 12 year old dog. She seems to love this food & is itching less. She has had allergies since she was a puppy. Its a bit pricey but well worth it if it will work for her. Sometimes she's not finishing it though. That's why the 4 stars. Hoping it will work for her. We are about 2 weeks in to using the larger bag.

  • so far so good for my german shepherd picky eater

    By on

    i have a picky eater 2.5 years old german shepherd who has food/seasonal allergies throughout her life, i have been having trouble picking the right food for her, i would feed her raw chicken in the summer time, but in fall she's not a fan of raw chicken so i have to find another healthy food for her. tried this bag, she loves it so far, been eating it non-stop for the last 1.5 weeks, never had any left overs, mixed it with canned food of duck or turkey or salmon from Blue Mountain or other brands, she has no problem so far with the kibble.

  • Helps GSD with his IBD

    By on

    My poor German Shepherd has had soft stool since he was a pup. At five, he developed irritable bowel disease and was diarrhea accidents in the house. This food has helped him dramatically and he no longer has tummy issues. We have to completely restrict his diet so he doesn’t eat anything else but luckily he likes this food. Wish they had an option to Autoship every 2 1/2 weeks instead of 3. Three week is too long between orders when two dogs are eating it daily. Greaf service as always from Chewy.

  • Pups love it.

    By on

    The girl loves salmon flavored food, but still gets bored midway through a bag of food... this keeps her attention throughout the entire bag. The boy loves food (!) but is on prescription food, I mix other foods with his to try and get him off of the Rx but it hasn't worked, but this food does not bother his belly nearly as much as most others. I can almost get to a 50/50 split.

  • Quality product at a reasonable price.

    By on

    Although I am not a big fan of the dry food industry, Merrick provides a healthy supplement to the dehydrated food we serve our five dogs on a regular basis. I appreciate the fact that it is made in America, keep up the good work.

    By on

    This a superb food for dogs with allergies. I have two dogs who have allergies and have issues with chicken in any form. This food is gobbled up and loved by all three of my dogs and there are no signs of allergies. Their coats are glistening and their eyes sparkling, highly recommended, and chewy..of course you can't get better customer service on the planet for dog food.

  • Best food I have found for my dogs' coat and overall health.

    By on

    One of my border collie mixes had severely dry itchy skin. Since changing to this food her coat is soft and no more scratching. Has only the ingredients I want and nothing else. Pricier than some other foods but their health is worth it.

  • Really helped with chronic itchy skin!

    By on

    My vet recommended a salmon based limited ingredient diet for our senior, mostly Cocker Spaniel's chronic, itchy skin. This food has made a great deal of difference! We made it through the usually itch filled summer months without needing to use medication. Her coat is shiny and healthy and that gross, yeasty smell is gone.
