Merrick Grain Free is an all-natural, grain free canine diet with all recipes starting with deboned meat as the first ingredient. These award-winning recipes provide leading levels of quality protein, along with farm-fresh fruits and vegetables like sweet potatoes, blueberries, peas and more. Industry-leading levels of Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acids aid in a healthy skin and coat for dogs, and powerful levels of glucosamine and chondroitin foster healthy hips and joints. All Merrick Grain Free recipes are cooked in the USA in our own organically certified kitchen, one batch at a time, with no ingredients from China. Recipes contain no corn, wheat, soy or gluten ingredients. Dogs thrive on quality protein and healthy fats. That is why Merrick Grain Free Real Buffalo & Sweet Potato Dry Dog Food provides balanced nutrition with real whole foods sourced from local farmers. This natural, grain-free formula dog food is ideal for all life stages and all breeds of dogs with a focus on naturally nutrient rich ingredients to support overall health. Deboned buffalo is the first ingredient and helps comprise the 70% of meat and fish sourced ingredients that help build and maintain lean, healthy muscle tissue with high quality protein, support healthy skin and coat with omega fatty acids and support joint health with glucosamine. The 30% fresh produce fortifies this high-quality grain-free canine diet with potatoes, sweet potato, peas, apples and blueberries offering vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Easily digestible carbohydrates like potatoes and sweet potatoes offer the benefit of sustained energy without upsetting grain-sensitive systems. This food revolution in the dog bowl yields 38% protein in every bowl. Like with all of our recipes, we locally source our farm fresh ingredients to ensure the highest quality. As a result, Merrick recipes don’t contain any ingredients from China and are cooked in our own five-star kitchen and manufacturing facilities that uphold the strict guidelines well defined by the FDA.

Flavor Name: BuffaloSize: 25-Pound Verified Purchase
UPDATE!!!: Merrick sold out to Purina in July 2015. I am currently using Orijen Adult formula, which I think is an excellent food (I think all Acana and Orijen, made by Champion are top notch), though more expensive. Probably my review of this Merrick food is no longer valid. Usually when a small high quality brand is bought out by a giant, cheaper ingredients are substituted. I have no idea if that's the case here, but be careful!! I am still using Merrick canned food for stuffing Kong toys and haven't noticed a change there, but it's not always obvious.

I am changing my review from 5 stars to 1 star until Nestle-Purina offers complete disclosure of changes to their formula and discloses their ownership on the bag. In fairness, in 2010 Merrick was purchased by an investment fund focused on growing the brand, so it's not like this wasn't inevitable.
--------- OLD REVIEW ------
Let's be honest. Customer Dog Food reviews pretty much all have a big lie. Would you review a steak dinner based on how your hair looks a week later? It didn't give you the runs? Pretty crude standards. You can't know how good a dog food is.

Unless you taste it. You have to taste lots of dog foods. Otherwise, you better look for a good dog psychic.

Lucky you. I tried it for you. And Merrick Real Buffalo and Sweet Potato is definitely right up there. In fact, if I had to eat a dry dog food as actual food, I'd pick Merrick hands down. Lower class dog foods often have a cardboard like non-food texture and little flavor beyond maybe a mild sweetness (from the sugar and corn maybe). Really top end stuff - like Orijen Regional Red - have a beef bouillion quality. Actually too densely flavorful for human food, but wow do dogs go for it (I use that for dog treats.

Flavor Name: ChickenSize: 25-Pound Verified Purchase
I recently switched to Merrick after my 'fave' food, Evo ancestral diet, had three recalls in four months and was 'off-shelf' a considerable time between recalls. Like many pet owners, I buy high end kibble because I'm looking for both the ingredient and for a special product--in my case, I want only US-sourced meats and vegetables with no 'fillers'. I have a deep distrust of Chinese produced products (especially after the melamine thing) and will switch off any foodstuff--pet or human--from China (and now that the Chinese have bought US pork-processing companies, I'll shun their products, too). Since P&G bought Evo (and three other premium brands) they have had multiple recalls...don't know if they have changed their sourcing or switched from meats to meat by-products, etc...but Merrick meets all my needs for a dog food. It has premium ingredients and is produced in the US of ingredients locally sourced in the US. My dogs like and accept it--the kibble size is a little small for my older (14 yo) large dog, who has difficulty 'mouthing' a lot of foods he used to love...but he can get enough down to keep him healthy and a little overweight. I think Merrick is a great deal for those of us wanting 'local sourcing' and production...with Amazon prime, the 20# bags are delivered to my PO with no charge for shipping...you can't beat that, and it surely is better than running from store to store looking for the 'right' brand. With what I save in gas/time it ends up being cheaper than nonpremium dog foods!

Dog food for our family is a continuous research project. I always try to make sure we have the best possible kibble for our Mastiffs. It works! Our big boy is solid as a rock and 251 lbs. Our puppy who gets the Merrick Buffalo, is 5 months old and 85 lbs. His coat is awesome, his stools are perfect and we are able to feed less of this highly nutritious food to achieve the desired caloric intake and completely satisfy his nutritional requirements.

The Dog Food Advisor Website rates this food 5 out 5 stars (there aren't that many 5 star foods available) and my older dog food grading system works out an A++ for this food based on a system where you add points for good ingredients and deduct points for bad ingredients. Whether you decide to try this food or not always avoid feed with any kind of byproducts or corn or corn meal.

We do supplement the dry food from time to time with cooked sweet potato, cooked pumpkin, or cooked poultry. However, the Merrick is so complete, we do this less than with other dry foods. Furthermore, the Merrick is so tasty that they do not require add ins to make the food more palatable as with many dry foods. In fact, they love this food so much we are able to use the kibbles as training treats. :-)

UPDATE: 7/21/15
Today, Nestle Purina PetCare purchased Merrick Pet Care ( ee the annucement: http://bit.ly/1CNNYAv). I cannot with good conscience recommend anything that company puts their name on. Purina has a long history of animal testing, chemicals and its food have even recently been implicated in thousand animal's deaths. For this reason, I am revising my 5-star to 1-star.
_____________

Merrick Grain Free Duck and Sweet Potato is a winner in our home. We have two big dogs - one is an allergy dog and the other a senior, and Merrick GF has exceeded our expectations for both. This food is grain free, by-product free for the allergy kid and has good amounts of a glucosamine & chondroitin (supplements for joint health) for my senior. (Plus - and this might be TMI, our seniors stool is much improved on Merrick.) Our "kids" coats are soft and shiny and the vet says their diet is everything he could hope for for any of his clients.

Notable things about Merrick Grain Free Duck & Sweet Potato:
* Made in USA (never any ingredients from China)
* Grain-free, GMO-free (GMO = genetically modified organism)
* Above-average protein and fat when compared to a typical dry dog food.
* contains skin and coat supplements - omega-3 fatty acids (.4%) & omega-6 (4.50%).
* contains joint health supplements - glucosamine hydrochloride (1200 mg/kg) & chondroitin sulfate (1200 mg/kg)
* contains chelated minerals, minerals that have been chemically attached to protein. This makes them easier to absorb.

I only feed 5-star rated foods - as rated by [...] but this food has stood out against many of other 5-star foods we've tried both in cost and my pup's over all satisfaction.
