Dogs thrive on quality protein and healthy fats. That is why Merrick Grain Free Real Salmon & 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 Salmon is the first ingredient and helps comprise the 55% of fish and healthy fat 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 45% 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.
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.
