Merrick Before Grain Chicken Formula Dry Cat Food Customer Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 65 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Senior cat loves it! I have a particularly picky senior cat (16). He has a weight problem, in that he is too thin. He is not a big eater, never has been, but now that he is older, this is a problem for him. It is hard to keep weight on him. I am always on the lookout for high calorie food that he will like. Before Grain is a hit! He loved the first bowl I put out for him, and I thought, well he won't like the second. He has continued to eat this food for two weeks now, and still seems to enjoy it. I am pleased with his weight maintenance and even slight gain! I like the thought of Before Grain too...I want to feed a wholesome, good quality food, and BG is just that. They know where their food comes from and treat the ingredients carefully to preserve their nutrients. February 14, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for all! With 10 cats ranging in age from kitten to 11 years old, we need a food that works for all and this one does. Minimal throw-up (maybe once every couple of days compared to everyday on other foods) and no stinky poo or gas! July 16, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by I have several cats and they ALL love this food! I would definitely recommend this to cat owner's. I love the fact that it is grain free. And, I must say they don't seem to need as much food, probably because it is rich in what they need, protein, Not fillers! I did not believe that the Yucca extract would do much for me having several cats, but, it is less stinky! I will be putting myself on the autoship program for this food. January 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Merrick Before Grain I love this food for the quality. More important is that my cats love it for the taste. less vomitting and no diarrhea which is great! Nothing for them to get upset tummies over. December 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Grain-free cat food My vet recommended this for my dog and cats. So far, the cats really like the chicken. January 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product! My cats love it and have beautiful coats...after hours of research on cat food I know it is one of the best out there! August 31, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Glad this product is still available This product is no longer available in local stores in my area, so I switched my cat to Merrick Bistro Chicken dry food instead. He's a finicky eater and definitely prefers this original Before Grain Chicken dry food, so I am very happy that I can purchase it on He had allergy problems in the past but we're not sure what was caused this. He is able to eat this food without problems. December 15, 2013
