Freeze-Dried Raw-Coated Kibble Dog Food

Nutritious Protein + Raw Delicious Taste

Merrick Freeze-Dried Raw-Coated Kibble dog food provides the convenience of kibble, plus the nutrition and taste of raw. Every piece of kibble has a visible raw coating and the entire line is formulated with healthy grains for optimal digestion.

What is Raw-Coated Kibble?

We start by freeze drying high-quality protein like deboned beef, chicken, and salmon to preserve essential nutrients. Our freeze-dried protein is then crushed and used to coat every piece of kibble.

#1 Ingredient: Deboned Meat, Fish or Poultry

Leading levels of high quality proteins for healthy energy levels, building muscle mass and a great taste your dog will love.

Real Whole Foods: Pea Free, Lentil Free, and Potato Free

Recipes include real, whole foods like carrots and apples and are crafted without corn, wheat, soy or artificial  preservatives, flavors or colors.
