Dogs thrive on quality protein and healthy fats, which is why the Merrick Classic Real Chicken with Brown Rice & Green Pea Dry Dog Food is made with high quality protein, whole grains, vegetables and fruits to provide a natural dog food formula rich in nutrients to support the overall health of your dog. Merrick starts with real and wholesome USDA-inspected deboned chicken as the first ingredient with amino acids necessary for building muscle and a healthy metabolism. Our protein rich MERRICK ADULT LARGE BREED RECIPE is balanced with 60% poultry and fish proteins 20% fresh produce and 20% whole grains ingredients. This food revolution in the dog bowl yields 30% protein for each meal.
Plus Merrick add wholesome grains, vegetables and fruits to not skimp on all the good stuff your dog needs. They have added leading levels of DHA for healthy growth; omega 6 and 3 fatty acids, "fur friendly" nutrients, that help support a beautiful, shiny coat. Glucosamine and chondroitin help maintain joint health so your dog can run and play.
