Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog Brandy loves this food. Prior to Merrick, she would go to her bowl, then walk away. With Merrick, she runs into the kitchen & jumps up and down at meal time. Did I mention, Brandy is 14 years old. Thank you Merrick for improving my dog health and life!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the BEST! Our Bichon, Nimbus, LOVES Merrick!! I went into our local pet store and spoke to the owners saying I wasn't happy with the current brand we were using. They HIGHLY reccommeded Merrick to us! We gave it a try and we are hooked for life!! I love the Lil Plates line! It is perfect for smaller dogs and the wet food line is fantastic as well! We recently bought the lil plates treats and they are a big hit on our house as well!! Thank You Merrick for a wonderful, healthy product line!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from L'il Plates...EXCELLENT RATING.......... Hello, A friend who has been helping me w/ food apparantly remembered that my dog needs to eat also. Last time they showed up here they had a bag w/ 12 of the tiny dinners for "Munchkin". She is a 5 lb. toy poodle, 16 years old & in perfect health. She absolutely LOVES your L'il Dinner plates!!!! I looked up your prices & am resolved to the fact that I just cannot afford them. I am 83 years old (this coming June) & on a VERY tight budget. I just wanted you to know how much she loved having these !! She is such a blessed little girl, very sweet, & a wonderful companion for/to me for these last 16 years. I don't know what I would do w/out her! .Your product is sensational !!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rescue loves it We found a dog at a truck stop and took him in. I had read in whole Dog journal that Merrick was a quality food. So we started him on that. It’s been a little over a month now and he looks great and has gained some weight. He really likes it, actually I think he would like anything considering he was eating what ever he could find. But nutritionally his coat is shiny he has some muscle on his bones now. I will continue to buy this product.. thanks Merrick
