Questions & Answers

20 Customer Questions

What is the size of the kibble?

Is any protein or bi-product in this food derived from chicken or beef?
Answer by ChewyJan 25, 2020
For additional flavor in Merrick's Limited Ingredient Diet recipes for dogs, natural flavor is derived from yeast fermentation, an excellent source of flavor and aroma. There are no other animal proteins in these recipes other than the single source animal protein (salmon) named on the bag.

Are any of these ingredients sourced in China, or outside the US?
Answer by ChewyAug 14, 2020
While all of our recipes are made in the USA in our Kitchens in Hereford, Texas, we do outsource a few ingredients from other countries. Here is that list: New Zealand: Lamb and Venison France: Duck and Rabbit: Canada/Germany: Vitamins and Minerals Premix. Everything else is from the US.

Is the salmon farm raised or wild
Answer by ChewyJan 03, 2022
This recipe includes a combination of both wild-caught and farm-raised salmon.

Silver Lab with allergies

The vet recommended I switch to a food immediatelty with salmon as a main ingredient, and NOT grain free. My lab has food allergies with severe itching and red eyes. This was the only food that I could find at the store that day that met both criteria, so I bought it. His allergies have had reduced significantly since switching and he seems to love the taste. Once, I established that it would work for him, I ordered it on auto ship from Chewy for him and my black lab.

Acceptable substitute

Bonnie, our MinPin mix, seems perfectly happy with this temporary or perhaps to become alternate substitute. Her regular dry food is the Chicken & Brown Rice but it was out of stock so since she eats salmon in her canned food we decided to give this a try. Being the same brand and very similar in most ingredients there was no transition problem and she likes it just as far as I can tell.

All Bags NOT created equal

I’m so annoyed with this product. Sometimes I order a bag for my two mini dachshunds, and the kibble is dark and smaller. Sometimes I order a bag and the kibble are lighter and larger. My pups eat fine when it’s the darker color, but seem to dislike the larger ones. This is SO ANNOYING because you never know which type you will get. Where is the Quality Control? Why am I constantly getting different food in the same bag???

My Dog Loves It

I've had my 24-pound Poodle Mix on this kibble for awhile now, and he's done exceptionally well with it. He had been getting dry skin all up his back and down his tail with other kibble, but it has cleared up since switching him to the Merrick Limited Ingredient line. My vet advised that a lot of dogs have bad reactions to pea/pea protein, and this formula has none. I rotate the salmon flavor with the lamb, beef and chicken and my boy loves all of them.

Dog didn’t like it

I have a 170 lb Bullmastiff that doesn’t say no to much, but he wouldn’t eat it. I was hoping it would help with his allergies but I will never know.

God send food!

My poor boy was suffering from bad acid reflux and GI issues. After vet visits, antacids, trying different feeding times and smaller more frequent meals, nothing was working. I finally figured out it was the Purina Pro Plan food that wasn't agreeing with him. Switched over to this Merrick salmon and rice and all symptoms were gone after the first feeding. I had to do a cold turkey transition since the old food was making him so sick, and there were no issues at all. He is back to bouncy, playful, energetic self. I feel good about the ingredients in this and highly recommend for sensitive tummies. Thank you Merrick!

corgi approved!

I recently transitioned my boys food from puppy to adult and he loves this! I love it too. I spent a long time in the food aisles staring at the ingredients on all the bags, went with this one and I have no regrets. Doesn’t mess with my dogs stomach at all. Only complaint is the price but only the best for my baby.

Good for allergies

New recommendations suggested not to be completely grain free but healthy grains instead. This so far has been good for our pup.
