Because the best dog ever deserves the best food ever, this recipe starts with real, deboned chicken, along with sweet potatoes, peas, apples, blueberries and more. And because senior dogs have special nutritional needs, it’s made with leading levels of glucosamine and chondroitin for healthy hips and joints, plus L-carnitine for healthy metabolism. Plus, every bag comes from small batches made in Merrick’s very own kitchen, and then tested for quality and safety, so you know it’s good enough for your precious pup.

    I have two young seniors, a Boxer & German Shepherd. The Boxer is very finicky when it comes to eating, often skipping meals. The first time I gave them this food, both dogs immediately dove into their bowls. My Boxer's approval was so surprising, and she continues to be eager for it at feeding times, and hasn't skipped a meal yet. Both dogs are energetic and have shiny coats. I highly recommend Merrick's Senior.

    Only been on it a month, but so far I’m pleased. Even my picky one laps it up! Company has good history with recalls and that impressed me. Very little “crumb” or “dust” in bag. Bag has great Velcro seal that really works and is easy to shut.

    I changed from Blue Buffalo to Merrick because of the Senior blend. My Golden loves it. It has great ingriedents for joint health and skin. A little pricey but worth it I think. Also made in the good old USA. We will see. Thanks

  • Merrick products are great, but...

    By on

    My 13 year old daschaund has loved Merrick food for years. Recently, I switched to Merrick’s senior food. My old girl would not eat it! She tried a kibble or two, but that was it. I tried for days to get her to eat it. I mixed the old food with the new, and she ate around it. Luckily I had enough of the old Merrick on hand to continue to feed her that, which she enhaled like she hadn’t eaten in days. Merrick is great food, but this time they missed the mark regarding the flavor. At least that’s what my girl thinks, which, according to her bowl full of food, must be true.

    I recently switched brands, as I felt my dogs need a better quality food and Merrick was a perfect fit! My dogs love it. the transition was seamless. At a time when there has been so many issues with dog food and poor quality, recalls etc, I know I can always trust Chewy.com, and this Merrick brand came highly recommended.. Thanks for having our back, Chewy!

  • 3 thriving seniors

    Just transitioned my three seniors from Merrick healthy weight to this senior recipe and all is good. Dogs continue to love the food and are doing amazing well on this brand. Their energy level is high, their interest in eating this recipe is equally high and as long as they've been eating Merrick foods people are generally surprised to find out my dogs' ages as they appear to be much younger and really vibrant. Excellent!!!

  • Healthy Diet for Active Senior

    By on

    Just transitioned my senior from another brand to this senior recipe and all is good. My dog loves the food and she has adjusted well to this brand. She is strong, vibrant and energetic as ever. At 10 years old she has no arthritis and no signs of slowing down. She appears much younger than her age which I credit to her healthy diet and active lifestyle. Thanks Merrick.

  • MERRICK GRAIN FREE SENIOR DRY DOG FOOD

    By on

    I have 3 dogs ranging from ages 9 to 15. My 15 year old is a German Shepherd mix and the other 2 Terrier mixes. My 15 year old is blind and has failing kidneys. I feel the protein content for a SENIOR food is way too high, 32%. I will keep looking for a Healthy Senior recipe that they like that has a lower protein content. I do feel Chewy.com has the best selections and prices and they ship very quickly.

    I've been feeding my 9 year old lab this for months now and it makes a noticeable difference. The supplements for her hip and joints has helped her walk better and be healthier.
