Question

what's the size of the kibble bits?

I have two large shih tzus (about 15-20 pounds each) but I don't want to give them large bits. For comparison, they do eat "Taste of Wild kibble" with no problem

The kibble in the Grain Free Duck is about the size of a button on a mans dress shirt, there is also a picture on the side of the bag of the kibble that is the actual size.

I've found that it's easiest on their stomachs if you slowly mix in new food with old food. Maybe at a 1:4 ratio for a few days, then 2:2 ratio, and so on. It should only take about 2 weeks to completely transition. PS my grain free food (Merrick) has done wonders for my pup's skin!

Slowly transition your pet by choosing one of Merrick's 11 standard-setting recipes and mixing it with your current pet food over the course of 5-7 days. Continuously increase the amount of our food while decreasing the amount in your dog's current diet. Days 1-2 you will mix 75% of previous food and 25% Merrick food. Days 3-4 you will mix 50% previous food and 50% Merrick food. Days 4-6 You will mix 25% previous food and 75% Merrick food. On day 7 You will feed 100% Merrick.

The 25lb bag I bought last week has an expiration date of a year and a half out. If you buy a small bag for your toy pup, there's no way it'll go bad before you use it! Plus, the bags have a zipper to keep the food fresh!!

Hello, The dry food is good for 3 years after production. The best by date is located at the top of the bag on the back, they will tell you when it expires. If you need further assistance, feel free to contact us.

Question

Re: Merrick Grain Free Real Duck & Sweet Potato Dry Dog Food - can this dog food be purchased in something larger than 25# packages??

I have 5 Retrievers - 3 Black Labs and 2 Golden Retrievers. I simply cannot buy 25# bag sizes of dog food ... particularly at the posted price. Is there something larger and in bulk (eg: 35 or 40#)?_- albeit a higher price is not only more practical and should be also proportionately affordable for a good quality product like this and to a customer who will obviously be a repeat buyer. Do you have any suggestions on how I could be accommodated? I am looking to switch from Purina Beneful after 8+ years on it and just now reading that it rates a low 1 star in quality. Your reply would be greatly appreciated!

Question

Does merrick grain free duck formula contain brewer's yeast?

My Bichon has become "yeasty" recently, particularly his paws, and research has been to first of all, get him off carbs that produce sugars in his system which feeds the yeast - and most certainly not to provide additional yeast in his food. Looking for a dry (holistic) food that meets this criteria. If not Merrick, suggestions?
