After doing some research on Merrick Pet Food, I would stay away from this food. Agreed it's better than what you can buy at petco but after finding out where his meat comes from I am completly turned off.

wow. i just came on here after a trip to the pet food store my dog stopped eating the merrick dry food. he ate the first bag and didn't show signs of anything too unusual. but maybe i wasnt watching close enough. when i bought his second bag he just stopped eating. i thought he was just coming down with something, or just ate something bad outside. but he still refused the dog food. he was starving and i just thought his tummy was upset. till it continued and he was eating everything else in sight. things outdoors, on our walks, beggin badly and eating the cat foods. He seemed desperate. when it popped into my head it might be the dog food i rushed out and got his old brand. And man he ate two full bowls and we are happy again. maybe something was wrong with the bag? or maybe the storage container? or maybe there is something about the food. i dont know. but I Do know im going back to the old food.. gosh i hope this food doesnt hurt other dogs. maybe it just doesnt keep well. I dont know but that my story and im sticking to it.

I just bought Merrick dog food (dry) today for my dog and she gobbled her first serving down. It was recommended to me by a friend and I hope my dog doesn't have any problems with it. There are alot of bad comments here. I will keep my fingers crossed!

My 2 year old golden had been on Canidae but after hearing more about that brand and reading comments I didn't continue with it. She's been on Merrick "Before Grain, chicken" for 8 months and has been doing great. If she gets a bite of any other dog food that has grains, she becomes a gas monster who we call "Chernobyl". My 7 year old Bichon also loves the Merrick- I had been feeding him a different brand but he refused to eat anything but Merrick once he had a taste of it. My golden had somewhat runny stools on the Canidae and has them sometimes with the Merrick, but she's an incredibly active dog and has been tested for everything and is fine. I love the Merrick and feel confident that they're well made products.

I have been feeding my girls (2 petite schnauzers and a giant schnoodle) merrick BG salmon for about a week and they have all started drinking tons of water and urinating everywhere. They are 5, 6 and 7 years old and only one was having problems before this food. I am taking it back and don't really know what food to get now. Help!

We have an indoor cat and became really sick this past weekend, was so weak she couldn't leave the kitchen, stopped eating, her breath smelled fowl, she drooled and lost tons of weight.
We took her to the vet and he couldn't tell by examining her, her membranes were pale, she was anemic, took exrays and her stomach was full of air from complicated breathing but no lung problems and her digestive system was completely empty and she was extremely dehydrated. and on the way to the vet she urinated all over my lap. she's on fluids now and blood tests should come back this morning to see any diseases... i am very sad she is only 5 years old and the doctor says whatever she is suffering with has been slowly creeping up on her and just now making her sick...
it is highly un-likely since we have another cat AND dog that eats special kitty cat food but if it's from the food I will be royally pissed... to everyone that's lost a pet my prayers go out to you... im almost sure my little kitty will have to be put down.... and it breaks my heart....
Sounds like a kidney problem my dog was suffering the same thing took him to a vet his calcium and kidneys were bad. He has a kidney problem now and put him on a special diet and meds. Truthfully it can be in her genes even bad dental health can cause it I hope she gets better

That post was so long ago that I have moved to the East Coast. I had finally gotten over the death of my cat and the real source. It was actually my brother and his friends smoking crystal meth and blowing it in the cats face. Fortunately a week before the cat died my brother blew himself up cooking his drugs. He burned alive in our shed.
