This food is quite possibly the highest quality food you can find. I've done a lot of research because I thought my lab had food sensitivities. Turned out to be something else, but finding this food was something good that came out of everything. Take a second to read the ingredients in this food. Nothing artificial, no fillers, just 100% high quality nutrition for your dog. And it makes a difference. My lab's coat is ridiculously soft... and its gross to talk about, but normal and minimal poop. Lesser quality foods often means runny poop, and usually, more of it because you have to feed them more. I have an 80 pound lab, and he only requires 2 cups a day of this food. Its so dense with nutrition that's all he needs. Less in = less out. Don't necessarily go by what's printed on the bags for how much to feed. That was actually what I thought was a food allergy with my lab at first. He had loose stools.... but turns out I was overfeeding him. Cut back on food and everything was fine.

Its just a great food. Made here in the USA... nothing from China. Highly recommend.

EDIT TO UPDATE: Merrick has been acquired by Nestle. I am no longer recommending this food as freely as before. In the press notice they said that the recipe and day to day operations would not change but then also said something about now being able to take advantage of global resources. I loved this food since none of it's ingredients were sourced from China. Now? I am worried. I will keep my fingers crossed that the quality and attention to the needs of their consumers don't slip but.... time will tell. Until then my unabashed 5 star rating is a three, a very worried three.

I have five dogs and two of them have food allergies. Finding a food that I can safely feed to all of them is hard. It takes some time and research and a lot of trial and error. I have tried everything from Pedigree to Nutro and nothing bowled them over and some of them made them sick.

We have been on this food for 3 weeks and it is amazing the difference we are seeing everyday. All have lost weight, their coats look glossy and feel softer, they all have tons of energy and they give me a bad time if their meals are even 5 minutes late. Of all of that, if only their energy levels had increased I would have continued to buy this food. They are all like pups again; playing and running and wrestling, not to mention all the time they play in the yard.

Before this food, they were couch potatoes and two of them were weakening physically and coming up lame. I scheduled an appointment with the vet for them to be assessed. Finally, it struck me that when I feel weak is when my blood levels are lower than they should be.

My two large dogs were refusing to eat everything I brought home. I was looking for a good dry dog food that they would eat and they both LOVE the Merrick. I wish that the price was better because I am going through two bags each month and that is pricey, but the quality is the best I have ever seen and I am no longer searching for something that they will eat.

It's hard to imagine that as a dog owner of one and a half years that I would put so much thought into my pet's bowel movements. Well when we purchased him from a very well respected breeder she was relatively adamant on the brand of food we gave him, namely Purina Pro Plan Selects Chicken & Rice-- a "premium" dog food. After a few months of having him he appeared to not like the food as much as when we got him so we switched gradually to Purina Pro Plan Selects Beef & Barley. He loved it! Over this time though his poop was relatively inconsistent-- typically normal but every once in awhile watery and when solid very dark in color.

Purina discontinued this food recently and instead of picking up a different ingredient we just switch brands-- to Merrick. Again, pet owners will understand the satisfaction of seeing your animal produce healthy looking poop. Now the poop is typically of very good consistency and a much more neutral color (not dark).

We love our dog, he's always been very affectionate and had a healthy level of energy-- the food hasn't seemed to been able to improve on what can't be improved. As I've already said, though, this food is worth it in terms of peace of mind when walking him and knowing he is healthy intestinally. The price isn't any better or worse than the other food was, anyway!

My mini schnauzer and shih-poo absolutely love this food! This is the first healthy food I have found that they will actually devoure and eat every meal! And, believe me, I have tried a lot of different dry kibble. Ignore the reviewer who's only complaint is the kibble size. It's not Merrick's fault that her dog is a gulper. I think it is the perfect size for any breed and it sounds so fresh and crunchy when my dogs chew it. I would give it 10 stars if I could and I plan on trying other flavors because Merrick uses the same basic formula in all their kibble so you can do that without your pampered pet getting stomach upset, I know, I've done it. Yay Merrick! great job on this kibble!
