Please use the information provided 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.

  • Great for puppies with allergies

    By on

    I bought this food for my female pit who was on blue buffalo chicken recipe and breaking out into hives. After trying a million things to help the hives we decided to try different food and finding something that had absolutely NO poultry meal was nearly impossible. This was the one I found and since it had great reviews I decided to try it. Within 2 weeks the bumps were gone and she's been doing great ever since. I will say though, and I don't know if this necessarily means something, but both my pups (pits) eat this food and poop like 6 times a day. Not sure if that means what they are eating isn't digesting like they aren't getting enough nutrients or something.

  • Worked for puppy diro

    By on

    My whippet puppy has had trouble with loose stool. The breeder provided us with Purina puppy food and we soon switched to simply nourish puppy food. Neither of these were working so tried Hills Science Diet puppy which also failed. I did some research and decided to go with a high protein diet. Jett has been slowly transitioning to Merricks puppy beef formula and already her stool has hardened up. I can only imagine what it will be like when she’s exclusively eating Merrick. Very happy with the results. Worth the price

  • Love this Food!

    By on

    Got my corgi puppy in November and wasn't thrilled with the breeder's choice in food. Started my pup on Merrick as soon as we got home in the chicken variety, which wasn't a fan favorite. Switched to this beef and won't be switching unless we absolutely need to. Love this food, pup is happy and healthy, all is well!

  • My pup didn't like much but Chewy customer service extraordinary!

    By on

    I ordered this food after trying a small bag locally but my lab/golden pup will now not eat this kibble without a lot of canned mixed in and only when absolutely starving, she will eat other brands of kibble first. It is very small kibble size, don't know if that bothers her. Chewy was great when I let them know and credited my account back. I will use Chewy again after this great experience.

  • Great Food!

    By on

    My dogs had problems with itching. This cured it! My miniature schnauzers love it. Less poop, small bite size pieces and no gas. We wanted the best food for our dogs and this is it! I hope Purina doesn’t change the recipe since I heard they bought the company.

    The 5th food in food trial I’ve purchased for newly adopted pup that was showing signs of allergies and sensitive belly. I mix this with back county beef and he gobbles it up. He is a large breed pup :). He already looks better. No bumps and not licking paws.

  • Quality ingredients, dogs love it

    By on

    I needed to change from Acana and this is working out well. I use both the puppy and the adult versions of the food with 11 year, 1 year, and 5 month old labs. They transitioned very easily with no digestive issues, and they love the taste.

  • Cure a picky eater

    By on

    We've had our rescue Giant Schnauzer for 3 years now. We've tried all the options of dog food; cheap, expensive, wet, dry, food you add water to, and homemade recipes. Some she wouldnt eat at all and a couple worked for a few weeks before having to add meat. We tried this based on the reviews and We have a Winner!! She's been on it now for 3 months and doesn't miss a meal! She eats her serving at one meal now which she didn't do before. Thank you Merrick!! You nailed it!

  • Great delivery!

    By on

    My first purchase on Chewy was so easy and delivered right to my door. So much easier than having to go to the pet store to by food for our dog. Merrick's is good food and glad Chewy has it included on their website. Will be buying again!
