First bad bag I’ve bought.
1.0 of 5 stars
Over 1/4 of this bag was total powder. I got it from either Chewy.com or Amazon.

Bag is filled with crumbs and food dust
1.0 of 5 stars
Disappointed with the last few bags I have purchased. I have been having to use a cullendar to sift out all of the crumbs and food dust. Before I sifted out half the bag, I already had two handfuls of crumbs and food dust. I am returning this to Petco today. This has been happening over the last couple of months, also with their dry dog food.

Merrick is the way to go .. my pooch loves all thee products.. I stumbled upon the fresh kisses treats a few months ago, and it’s been great for the both of us . Compared to other brands. They feel and look better (textured & apperance) and taste tested.. he gobbles them up . Merrick has proven to be the best for US. With amazing products
Thank you MERRICK for delivering yet another one!! My pooch has fresh breathe and an amazing coat and full belly (denti stick ,wet and dry food and treats MERRICK household ONLY)

I bought a case of this food and my toy fox terrier wouldn't touch it. It was a light gray color, didn't look or smell anything like beef. I gave some to the cat and she got diarrhea.

My Dachshunds’ Favorite Food!
5.0 of 5 stars
I had my dachshund puppy on another high-performance/high quality major brand of food. It worked well for her as a puppy but once she hit 9 months I noticed that brand was causing some weight gain, even with the adult recipe. I started looking at fat percentages and ingredient quality in dog foods and it led me to Merrick. I decided on the rabbit and chickpea as I don’t like a lot of potatoes for her. She had been picky with other foods and not eating them, but not with this stuff! The first time I put it down she gobbled it right up, without any transition period. Sometimes I rotate it with the venison and chickpea, but the rabbit is definitely her favorite and the one that we come back to! I would highly recommend this food to anyone! Wish there were more grain free varieties without potatoes!

Perfect for a dog with tons of allergies
5.0 of 5 stars
I can't rave about this food enough! I tried every food I could get my hands on and slowly figured out my greyhounds allergies but something still wasn't right. One day it finally clicked: potatoes!
I searched all the local pet stores and Merrick Limited Ingredient Chicken was the only kind that didn't have potatoes or any of our other allergens (beef, lamb, fish, duck.) Its been 6 months and his stomach is normal for the first time! I just wish they made bigger bags.

No Freeze Dried

Our old english loves this since she was a pup. Sadly to say our last purchase had no freezed dried pieces and took longer than expected for her to eat the while bag. But, We will continue to purchase, healthy skin, coat and happy girl!!!!

Great for both my dogs !
5.0 of 5 stars
My dog has had skin problems and a little over weight. She is 10 years young and I finally found Merrick Healthy Weight food and her fur and skin are great and she got her waste line back !!!! She feels better than she ever has. Both of my dogs eat the same food so this makes it so easy for all of us !!! Thank you Merrick !

Stopped our dog's seizures
5.0 of 5 stars
Our dog Shepard randomly started having seizures a couple years after we got him. We changed so many things to try to prevent them, but they didn't stop until we started buying him this food. We don't know what about this stopped them, but we are so grateful and will continue to buy this brand of food for him and any other dogs we have.

Magic!
5.0 of 5 stars
I started feeding my 2 fur babies (6 & 13 years old) Merrick about a year ago. The older of the two has the weirdest fur - very thick & unmanageable - plus an undercoat that's very difficult to deal with too. As a result he gets a lion cut (which he loves). The old cat food did absolutely nothing for his skin & he always looked like he had dandruff. With Merrick there's no dry skin - only healthy skin & fur. Plus he loves the flavor! Thanks Merrick for making such a great product!

Excellent Food for my Rescue maltese
5.0 of 5 stars
I adopted my Maltese of 11 years old from the shelter a month ago and what a difference this food has made! She had dry hair and dry skin, her coat was awful, she was also underweight. I was told about this food from a Maltese breeder and went to buy the lil plates Senior Chicken and sweet potatoe and could not be happier! Lily loves this food so much, her coat is thick and shining, no more dry skin and she is full of energy like a puppy. Her stools are very good and no bad odor like other foods cause.

My baby loves it

Ive had my shi tzu on this since she was a pup and we tried to switch her foods once (sorry!) and she refused to eat for a week then we went back to this and she gobbled it up. Definitely her favorite food ever

This boy deserves the best
5.0 of 5 stars
Bailey - my golden retriever - loves this food, never turn his noses up at it, his skin, coat and all round general health are getting better day by day. I highly recommend Merrick grain free products and particularly like the Real Salmon + Sweet Potato Recipe for your lovely dog. Try it, we are sure you will love it and your dog will thank you for it.

Bones found in can
1.0 of 5 stars
Not sure why a dog food company that knows how serious it is if a dog consumes a chicken bone that I would find 2 bones in a can of Wigaling. Luckily for my Evie, I emptied the can into a plastic container first before putting it in her bowl. If I didn't feel the bones when stirring the product, I would have served her the entire thing. A complete shocker and I do not recommend this product to any dog owner.

Thank you for your feedback and sharing your feedback with us. Food safety is very important to Merrick, and we want to assure you that this recipe is safe for your dog to enjoy. The chicken bones you found in the can are there on purpose as this is one of our bone-in recipes. In fact, Smothered Comfort, Wingaling, and Gameday Tailgate products have been on the market since October 2005 and have become some of our top sellers. We added our Backcountry Hearty Chicken Thigh Stew to this line up in 2015. If you notice on the can, there is a note from the chef that states the purpose of the chicken bones: “Our slow cooked, whole chicken thighs/wings offer marinated tender chicken cooked on a softened bone. This special cooking process makes the bone soft and safe for your dog to enjoy." Feel free to serve whole, remove, or break apart the soft chicken bones for ease of pet consumption. The bones also provide the full flavor your dog loves and a unique treat. The food is pressure cooked inside the can and this process is what softens the bones. For further assurance, please watch veterinarian Chris Smith in this video about our recipes with bones: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ETem8C6fGx8 . If you have any other questions or if you would like us to make recommendations for other recipes that do not contain bones, please don't hesitate to let us know.


Both of cats were big fans

my oldest(8yrs) is very finickey and won't eat many types of food(has to be moist but not wet), and I was very hesitant to give him this but he gobbled it up like it was his last meal!

Let the kibble out of the bag....
5.0 of 5 stars
My cat, Cali, literally tried eating the bag to get to this cat food! And no I was not starving her; her bowl was full of a different brand of cat food. Cali is extremely spoiled so she gets raw meat and she had the same reaction to this kibble that she does to raw meat. I am going to let the kibble out of this bag because it is great and Cali approved!

Always hungry
2.0 of 5 stars
I’ve been using this product for a year now. She’s a mini pitcher that weighs 8 lbs and I have to feed her 1-3/4 cans a day to keep her at that weight which Merrick says that much would be for a 20lb dog. She’s loves the food but is always hungry. Vet says the food is lacking the ingredients she needs. Im really questioning this food now.

Don’t think I’ll ever change from Merrick!
5.0 of 5 stars
I have 2 cats whom I feed Merrick Purrfect Bistro canned and dry - Turkey recipe. They LOVE it. I used to buy the Salmon and Healthy Weight dry but I decided to try the Turkey when it was on sale and they went crazy for it, I think partially because the kibbles are a bit smaller. They get wet 2x/day & dry for a snack. I’ve been feeding Merrick since my cat was 11 wks (the Kitten recipe) because it was grain free and had great ingredients. She’s 4 now and my male is 2. It’s not too expensive so I’d rather feed my cats a food a tad bit pricier for the quality so they can get the vitamins and proper calories without having to eat a ton of cheap food to get the same nutrition and become overweight. They both have silky, soft fur and plenty of energy. I like the variety Merrick offers so I can alternate flavors. Both cats love it and unless the ingredients change (due to them being bought out by Purina to more efficiently distribute the product) I have no plans of ever changing from Merrick. Both I and my cats love Merrick.

Highly satisfied

My puppy loves this brand!

My pup trades off on all the lil plates and eats them without problems. She likes the salmon, Texas beef and chicken. We buy them in 4 lb bags to give her a variety. We also add the wet food on top to give extra flavor.
