Rated 5 out of 5 by Letitia Great for pups with food allergies!
I have two frenchies that are allergic to grains, chicken, and turkey. And while they can eat beef/buffalo/bison, they don't do as well on that as they do salmon, venison, lamb, and pork. Clyde and Nan LOVE Merrick's Pork & Sweet Potato recipe and I love having the additional novel protein for rotating in their diets. These are two pups who used to eat dehydrated raw food but switched to kibble last year after Clyde suffered some health setbacks and the multi-thousand dollar veterinary bills piled up. I am so glad that Merrick offers a high quality kibble that treats their little furry bodies right AND is affordable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by at__lindsey this is an awesome product! i love it.
I have bee trying to find a good food for my dog for a while. Since my dog of 16 yrs passed he was her soul mate she didnt want to eat. At that time they'd eat beneful this was 3-4 yrs ago now. If i knew about the bad in beneful or most dog foods i would have never fed them that my dog that passed had a tumor by his private. Well so ive been feeding my baby girl pedigree for years though in recent months she would not eat it. Seems th ey changed the recipie so there is something wron with pedigree little champions. I changed her to merrick real pork + sweet potato recipie. Shes super picky and would not eat any other dried dog food since beneful she loves this new food im happy thank you merrick. Please keep it natural or ill change if i find out m dog can tell if something is wrong and ill pay more money for good quality if i find out its bad.

This is a great combination - my dog loves Merrick dog food and I love that Merrick products are produced in the USA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shooshoo Wonderful protein for dogs with allergies
I show and breed beagles. One of my pups came down with a systematic yeast infection at 15 weeks (kicked off by a vaccine) and I tried everything over the course of the next 6 months to help him get well. I did fresh raw, frozen raw, supplements, herbs, homeopathy...it was THIS ONE PROTEIN that made the biggest difference. Once my store was out of the pork, so we got duck variety and he reacted poorly to it. Through a process of elimination, I discovered he was allergic to poultry of all kinds, lamb, beef and buffalo. The pork was the only thing that would keep him cleared up and healthy. I have since switched all of my dogs over to this wonderful food, everyone looks and feels great. Please do not ever stop making this protein option and please don't ever add chicken fat to it like the three other blends have. This food may not be great for all dogs, and I do have a GSP who cannot eat this at all, but it has been a wonderful food for my beagles!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Booo Great for my dog's poultry intolerance. Finally!
Finally, a grain-free dog food with only pork and fish for dogs that struggle with intolerances and allergies. I found this food after exhausting all my options and my 13 year old newf mix is doing amazingly on it. I hope the formula never changes, though I would give one more star if the protein was a little higher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris Grain Free Real Pork & Sweet Potato
I have a Jack Russell/Rat Terrier cross that is allergic to chicken. Most all food has either chicken meal or chicken fat in it an your Pork and Sweet Potato doesn't. She has been on it for a couple of months and no more scratching or hives. She loves it. I also feed my 110 pound Giant Schnauzer the same food and he loves it too. Thanks for making a good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by michmi Finally no more scratching
We had to go grain-free due to skin allergies and within a month of being 100% switched to Merrick (I switch flavors, but use mostly the pork & sweet potato), my old gentleman is without the constant scratching and gnawing on himself. I shouldn't forget to mention that he LOVES this food and he's pretty picky! Might cost a bit more but that's fine, I've cut the vet visits down from every 3 months to once a year for a checkup.

Ive been feeding 4 month old husky real pork by Merrick for the last 2 months. I can say that his coat is amazing, his muscle definition is building well..yes I do walk him daily but am certain its also got to do with the food. In addition, he absolutely loves it. He is fed 3x a day...and each feed he wolves down his merrick real pork with gusto. Highly recommended. Not cheap but worth every dollar!!
