has anyone heard of merrick pet food?
is it qood ferr dogs?
I didn't know that Merrick manufactured Royal Canin...however the food labeled with their own "Merrick" label were not involved in the recall...I've heard good things about it from GSD owners...Here is a list of dog foods already scored...the higher the score, the better nutritionally, the dog food is...Finding just the "right" food for every dog is an adventure, sometimes...If you have a Costco card, Kirkland's brand will give you a big bang for your buck...

Merrick is a major brand. They make for instance " Royal Canin" . They were on the recall for the contamination that killed and hospitalized 10's of 1000s of dogs in the USA , due to melamine being put in the food, thru the gluten, instead of high quality protein.
This is NOT my site, but this is the food I feed my dogs and cats, and I manage a 150 dog Pet Resort, and have bred Champions and GrandChampions..35 plus years experience.
Check out the video about the horrible things put in pet store pet foods, and see the brand comparisons on this website... Save your pet and save vet bills, by feeding the freshest, safest and best.
I use it for my pug mix...she won't eat the kibble we feed plain, so I mix in a tablespoon of Merrick and she gobbles it all up.
For the dry food I feed Low Fat California Natural (Chicken and rice). The Merrick flavors she gets are either Gramma's Pot Pie or Thanksgiving Dinner. The others are usually too rich for her. She loves it and I haven't had a problem with it.
I have never heard of it. I use Nutro
