How many dry measure cups are in a pound of kibble?
Answer by ChewyMar 16, 2021
There's approximately 4 cups in every pound of kibble food.

The "Guaranteed Analysis" says 1,200 MG of glucosamine. What volume is that based on? In other words, how many MG per cup of food? I'm trying to determine if the food has enough glucosamine for my dog. Or, if I still need an additional supplement. Thank You.
Answer by ChewyOct 18, 2020
This variety contains 1200 mg/kg of Glucosamine.

Where is this made?
Answer by ChewyMar 14, 2020
This food is made in the USA.

Buddy won’t eat

Buddy refuses to eat it. He needed to lose weight, but after 2-3 days of refusal, I thought maybe he didn’t feel good. He did, however, eat a protein snack or a Greenie. I switched to the Merrick Diet Lamb, and Buddy was happy. As a test, I gave him the chicken again, and he turned his nose up, and walked away!

Love this dog food

My dog is pretty picky... but she loves this dry food. We tend to give her a scoop of wet food because that is just how we roll... but she eats this one dry just by itself and loves it ..she also loves it in her Kong!

My dog loves this food!

After receiving a new bag of her regular food our dog became sick. I called the vet and after testing everything was fine. Tried the food again and it was a mess. I spoke to Chewy who was very helpful, refunded me for the food that we felt was the problem and recommended this brand. The minute we poured it into her bowl she gobbled it up and has been healthy and happy every since. Thank you Chewy!

Great limited ingredient dog food!

I received this product for free for my dogmas she ate it right up! I did slowly mixed it with her usual food and it didn’t even upset her otherwise sensitive tummy. I attribute this to the limited ingredients in this food. The recipe is clear and easy to read when making sure it has what my dog needs. The smell was ok and smelled of chicken but the pieces are tad bit too small for my dog since she inhaled it quickly! I would recommend to others if their looking for a straightforward dog food for a dog that needs to lose some weight but not be starved.

Scooter likes it

My Rottweiler really seems to like this food. I like it because it is made of good ingredients and doesn’t contain grains. I wanted to try it because he has bad gas and I thought that his current food may be hard for him to digest. Since eating Merrick’s, his gas has lessened- it may or may not be the food change but I am going to continue to integrate it into his diet.

The fat boy loves it

I received this for the purpose of reviewing and testing. My dog eats high end foods, EarthBorne and the like. This fits the niche nicely with a nice low pricetag. The food smells pretty ripe, definitely stronger than his normal foods. If you don’t have a food bin, you’re in for a bad time. The limited diet is nice, grain free which is good for their joints. This particular bag is also fortified with vitamins and minerals, all that good stuff to help digestion and the like. He’s definitely got the toots from it, and mama always said “you know it’s good food when they don’t poop as much and they have stinky farts.” Check and check. Efficiency! My only real gripe with the food is the size. I have a larger hound dog, and the kibble size is pretty small. For a food anxious dog, it’s causing a little bit of an issue. Overall, this food has made my list thanks to the quality/price ratio! I will definitely purchase it again, and will recommend it to friends and family as a low cost sub for their holistic food of choice.

My dog loves it!!

My dog loved this dog food!! It shocked me, because he normally doesn’t like chicken dog food. But there is something about this one that he loved!! His head never leaves the bowl! It is a “diet” kind, but I can’t give a review on that because he hasn’t been eating it long enough. But I can say that it’s awesome that they put how much to give them on the side based on what you want their weight to be!! The only reason I can’t give it 5 stars is because it’s pricey. My dog is about 65 pounds so that small bag lasted maybe 2 weeks and that’s because we were only giving it to him at night. If you are willing to spend a pretty penny on dog food then this is a great choice; I just don’t think it’s the most budget friendly option
