I'm sorry that I can't tell you exactly how long the food lasts, but I find it's important to transfer the food from the bag into a few good, air-tight containers or ziploc bags, because the food will stay fresh much longer this way than if you keep it in the original bag. The dog food bag comes with a built-in zipper that can be re-sealed and has markings above, indicating where to cut the bag open; however, I've found that the zipper peels away from the bag quite easily once it's been opened, which defeats the purpose of having a zipper. My dog loves this food, and I can say for sure that the food lasts at least a couple of months when stored properly.

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!!

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!

As far as I know 25 lb bags are the biggest I've seen in store on shelves and online. But it is definitely a great food.

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.

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?

Merrick is an all natural pet food that is AAFCO approved. The Grain Free Duck recipe is free of brewer's yeast, so this or any of the Grain Free recipes would meet this criteria.

All of our food (wet & dry) is formulated for the well pet. Unfortunately we do not have any foods formulated for pets with special needs. All of our can foods are grain free and considered Low Glycemic. If you need any certain information from our analysis, I can provide that information to you in order for you to check with your vet. Your vet will know if our food would be suitable for your pet.
