Update: In early July, 2015, Purina announced they had acquired Merrick in a recent transaction. Merrick is now part of the Nestle Purina umbrella.

Let’s face it – everyone has the best dog ever, right? We know we do (depending on the day) and I’m not afraid to show you a vast collection of adorable photos and funny videos to prove it.  There are millions of pet parents like me in the world and our friends at Merrick Pet Food want to meet you all!

In addition to this meet and great, they want to give you a chance to win a one year supply of dog food! So, read on to learn more about this food and how you can enter to win for your best dog ever.

For those who don’t feed raw diets, or who just want to give their pets a special treat, Merrick is a wonderful choice. We love that it’s made from real ingredients – all sourced from folks in the USA. The grain-free and holistic diets from Merrick ensure that your pets are only getting the best in pet food from locally sourced farmers.

We were able to try out Merrick’s Real Lamb and Sweet Potato recipe, which is one of our dogs’ favorite proteins.

The first few ingredients in this pet food are: Deboned Lamb, Lamb Meal, Sweet Potatoes, Peas, Potatoes, Natural Flavor, Salmon Meal, Pork Fat, Apples, Flaxseed Oil, Blueberries, and Salmon Oil.

We were also able to take a look at one of their canned foods, so we selected Carver’s Delight to try out. I think you’ll be as impressed as we were when you look at their first few ingredients: Deboned Chicken, Chicken Broth, Deboned Turkey, Dried Potatoes, Potatoes, Carrots, Dried Peas, Natural Flavor, Dried Egg Product, and Canola Oil.

We know you’ll pleased when you open the can. There are actual chunks of real meat sitting right inside and real ingredients. In fact, Merrick’s takes immense pride in their ingredients, and even offers a five-star promise, which includes these important points:


No ingredients from China

Merrick only uses local growers that they know and trust. They purchase fresh ingredients from family farms across the country, during the prime picking time for each season.

Real whole Foods

They don’t use additives, sweeteners, colors or preservatives. This ensures that the high-quality products they purchase at time of sourcing remains high-quality. It also helps them guarantee that their products are healthy.

Cooking and Quality Live Under One Roof

Let’s face it – we don’t want the world’s best dogs eating anything that isn’t cooked locally with locally sourced ingredients, with quality control we can track back to each individual ingredient. You’ll find that Merrick’s quality and safety performance is of the highest quality because they partner with groups like NSF International, Safe Quality Food, and HACCP.

Balanced Nutrition

Every Merrick recipe starts with deboned meat, not fillers. In fact, their dry recipes are 60-7-% meat, poultry or fish and each bowl has a guaranteed protein level of 30-38%. When combined with the freshest vegetables and fruits, you have a pretty good idea of their high food quality.

Health You Can See

Merrick knows that by starting with the highest quality ingredients, you’ll wind up with the highest quality foods.  As a result, you’ll see your pets reaching their optimal weight, experiencing increased energy, encouraging a healthy digestive tract, and having healthy skin, joints and bones.
