Feeding Guidelines

Looking at the chart below, divide the total cups per day by the total number of times you feed your dog per day to determine the portion size for each meal. Keep a clean bowl of fresh water available at all times. Every dog is a little different, so optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, size and activity level. Please use the information below as an initial recommendation only and adjust when needed. Dry and we 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 6oz of wet food.

Goal Weight (lbs) Calories/Day Cups/Day (approx.)
3 140 1/3 cup
6 230 1/2 cup
10 345 3/4 cup
15 460 1 cup
20 575 1 1/3 cups
30 780 1 3/4 cups
40 960 2 cups
50 1140 2 1/2 cups
60 1310 3 cups
70 1495 3 1/2 cups
80 1725 3 3/4 cups
90 1780 4 cups
100 1920 4 1/3 cups

Transitioning

Gradually mix in the new food over a 5-7 day period, increasing the amount of Grain Free each day.

amazing!!

Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Grain-Free Dry Dog Food:

I was feeding my very picky boxer cooked chicken thighs during the winter months to help keep some weight on her, now its warming up decided to try a dry food. So one day I stopped at Petco and asked the Rep what she would suggest for a picky eater and she pointed out this product: Real Duck sweet potato, bought a small bag just to try and went back this week to get a big bag!! Baby girl loved it! I was amazed how she went right to it the first time. My mom's dog is a picky eater too, and I am taking her a sample this weekend when I go visit!

Thank you Merrick!

Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Grain-Free Dry Dog Food:

A month ago I started our 10 yr shihtzu, Max, on grain free kibble. The difference in 2 weeks was already noticeable. In the past 8 years Max was to 6 different vets. It started as occasional ear infections, vomitting bile frequently, sore swollen feet and pads. Then turning to red, sore, itchy skin that would get weepy, hair lose on belly and an awful yeasty smell. Vets would prescribe several different meds, ointments, ear drops, medicated shampoo, do skin scrapings that showed yeast, and last summer punch biopsies in 6 different locations. He was on prescription Royal Canine PD for several years. About all that helped with was the vomitting bile no longer occurred. This winter I was to the point of thinking maybe there wasn't much more that could be done for him. After reading your reviews I figured we had nothing to lose. Max is now a different dog! Active, happy, hair is growing back, skin is no longer irritated looking and the terrible odor is gone!! I wish I would have found it sooner and that just 1 of 6 vets would have suggested trying to feed grain free.

Switched

By Jessie

from PA, United States

Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Grain-Free Dry Dog Food:

WOW!! What a difference this food makes. I switched from a very popular performance dogfood, that most exhibitors use, to Merrick and the difference in her skin and coat was outstanding. Although the other dog food was ok, I had to add canned food, just so they would eat the entire bowl. Most of the time I ended up throwing away almost a 1/3 of the food. What a waste. Not with Merrick. The minute they hear the velcro seal unzip, they stop whatever they're doing and high tail it straight to the kitchen. This is an outstanding product and I hope they're here to stay!

    Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Grain-Free Dry Dog Food:

    We adopted our rescue cocka-poo about 7 years ago, when she was 3 years old. She never wants to stop eating and is not selective, but we noticed early on that she's got a sensitive stomach/irritable bowel. The breed is also prone to allergies of all sorts. I read a lot and decided to go for the grain-free diet, which we've since enhanced with a pinch of plain white rice added to each meal. This keeps her very regular. As I said, she's been on this diet for 7 years, is very healthy and perky for her age, we're able to keep her weight under control, and her coat is always gorgeous. Couldn't be happier, and the dog is as thrilled with the food as the first day she had it.

    Wonderful food, our puppy loves it!!!

    By Kandy

    from Roodhouse, IL, United States

    Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Grain-Free Dry Dog Food:

    I bought this food for our puppy to start switching her over as soon as we brought her home. We have now had her for 7 months, and she still thinks meal times are just big treat sessions. She loves it! She is so healthy and shiny. Everyone at her vet always comment on how beautiful and healthy she looks (she loves her vet, and we stop in for visits). We take her everywhere and people always comment on her beautiful coat, so we get to brag on Merrick for that. Thank you for being committed to using quality ingredients!

    Picky Eater!

    By MrsTerk

    from San Jose, CA, United States

    Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Grain-Free Dry Dog Food:

    We have a very picky, female lab who will turn her nose up at nearly everything. We recently switched her to this recipe when her regular food became increasingly difficult to find. She is also a champ at finding pills, no matter what we hide them in and spitting them out, so we wanted something with supplements to make things easier. Typically, she will not even entertain the suggestion of a new food, when she does it is after much coercion. To our very great surprise and relief, she immediately took to it and ate the whole bowl! It only costs a few dollars more than the food she was on (eukanuba Labrador formula) but she is much more enthusiastic about eating. Since she is a lab, we have had to be very conscientious about her weight, with the healthy ingredients in this food, we don't have to stress as much as long as we stick to the recommended servings. As soon as our 4 month old Doberman Shepherd is done with her current bag of food, we will be switching her, and possibly our cat, to the respective recipes. Very satisfied!

    Want to like it, but...

    By Marky Mark

    from Atlanta

    Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Grain-Free Dry Dog Food:

    We switched to Merrick Real Texas Beef and Sweet Potato (38% protein) a couple of years ago largely because one of our older guys was a little anemic. Vet suggested giving him more protein so we found a very high protein dog food and even sprinkled ground beef on his food. None of our three dogs had any issue that we could tell. Sadly, two of those three guys are gone now but our 9yo Golden (with the cast iron stomach) continued on, drooling before every meal just as he has done since about one year old. A couple of months ago we brought in a new guy, another GR (this one from Turkey). For his first few weeks in this country he was on another brand's LID recipe with fish as the protein source. No problems reported by his foster. We switched him to Merrick RTBSP. No problem at first but within a couple of weeks he developed diarrhea. After a couple of days a trip to the vet. Well, their is bad bacteria (clostridium) so antibioitic (metrodazinole) for six days. He responded immediately. A couple of days after finishing meds, mucousy stool, precursor to diarrhea, coming back. Vet says is possible the most virulent bacteria were not killed or he reinfected (not likely) so try another six days. Stool firms up within a day. A couple days after meds completed...here we go again. We talked about it...let's change the food. I got a LID recipe from another premium brand. Almost overnight improvement began. After four days...it is in the past and he is actually acting a little perkier. So, I cannot give it a high rating. Probably just this guy's chemistry but I am unsure at this point.

    My Rescue Pup Deserves the BEST!!!

    By Jamie

    from Bloomingdale, NJ

    Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Grain-Free Dry Dog Food:

    Dear Merrick, I would like to start off by saying how much my pup Rockie LOVES your food, treats & bones, as do I. My mother (the research Queen) recommended your product to me & I'm happy to say I'm very pleased. Merrick products are a great way for me to keep my pup happy, healthy & active. I also tell all my fellow fur mommies to get Merrick dog/cat food & treats for their pets. Our pup Rockie was a six month old pit-mix puppy on Death Row at a NYC shelter, until my boyfriend & I rescued him last summer. About 2 months after we took Rockie home I had a really bad MS relapse & he stayed by my side once I returned home from the hospital, especially when I had to take my at-home steroid infusion to treat the relapse. He has been my Rock through so much since we've taken him home & it's hard to tell who has rescued who? So many of my friends comment "it's just a dog" but he is so much more, he's the reason I am walking over 2 miles a day & staying active is essential for someone with a neurological debilitating disease. I eventually want to get Rockie licensed to be a service dog so I can show people how loving & therapeutic any pet can be & pit bulls are not evil. I feel Rockie has been & continues to be a huge part of my battle against Multiple Sclerosis. Keeping Rockie happy & healthy, keeps me happy & healthy!! :) Sincerely, Jamie & Rockie
