Description

"In the beginning, cat food had not a grain within." It's true. And neither does Merrick Before Grain Salmon Formula Dry Cat Food. Quality, deboned salmon is full of protein and healthy fatty acids, and calcium-rich alfalfa will keep his bones strong and dense. Rosemary extracts reduce allergies, making this salmon formula even better if your kitty suffers from food or environmental allergies. Fluffy deserves the best, and as far as he's concerned, there's nothing better than Before Grain.

Key Benefits

  • All-natural, whole food source provides a balanced diet
  • 96% meat content is great for the carnivorous cat
  • Rosemary extract reduces allergies
  • Vitamins A and E help support healthy eyes
  • Chicory root reduces the risk of worms

Feeding Instructions

Hoe much food your cat eats each day is dependent upon size, level of activity, stage or reproduction, and environment. When feeding in measured amounts, feed according to the weight of your cat. When feeding with out 96% meat cans, reduce dry amount fed by 1/4 cup for every 3 oz of wet food. Add 1/4 cup of dry cat food for each additional 2 lbs. Adjust feeding level to your cat's individual needs. Kittens and nursing females may consume two or three times the recommended amount per day. Keep fresh water available at all times. Store in a cool dry place.

Transition Instructions

Slowly transition your pet by choosing one of Merrick's high quality diets for your cat or dog. Mix the Merrick food with your current pet's food over the course of 5-7 days. Continuously increase the amount of the Merrick food while decreasing the amount in your dog or cat's current diet.

    This is great quality, grain-free cat food that my cat chows down, and it was a cheaper on Chewy.com than anywhere else with the subscription. I'm very glad I signed up!

  • Eh

    By on

    I feel the company has tweaked a bit of it's ingredients. I normally purchase the chicken flavored one but decided to try the fish flavored. Been buying chicken for a while now and the cats seem to not enjoy it like they use to, hence I decided to try the fish flavored. The smell is pretty over powering and it was a chore to get them to eat it. Had to mix "junk" food in w/it to get them to eat. I will eventually switch back to the chicken flavor because as far as "grain free" foods go this is by far the best value. I figure they will eat it if they get hungry enough.

  • Merrick Before Grain Salmon Formula

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    We have been feeding Merrick for 10 years since the melamine toxicity affected so many other cat foods containing grain. The formula is great for young and older cats and the food is consistent. We have never had a problem with the food and the cats love both the grain-free chicken and the grain-free salmon formulas!!

  • Cheapest Price Feed On The Internet!

    By on

    I checked the sites that I use to order feed on the internet and you're prices are the lowest I have found of all that I know shipping was fast. The packaging is the best of all sites I have used. Needless to say this will be the only site I will use from now on unless if the prices raise I will look at the prices of the other sites but I doubt they will be able to match the prices. Overall all things looked at this is by far the best site to order feed from of all the sites I know of. Number 1 in my mind.

  • Keeps my cats healthier

    By on

    I originally bought this product with the intention of giving my cats a more nutritious diet in order to keep them healthy for longer. I've been feeding my cats this food for 3 years now and I sincerely believe it is keeping them healthier than the grocery store brands I previously used. I have 4 cats. The eldest is 15 and she's never been sick, the next one is 12 and she's doing great as well. I have 2 cats who are 8, one is fine and the other has a mast cell cancer in her nose. She had the cancer for a year previous to feeding her this food. My vet is very surprised and optimistic about her survival this long with type of tumor she has! Most cats would not have made it this many years with I originally bought this product with the intention of giving my cats a more nutritious diet in order to keep them healthy for longer.

Most cats would not have made it this many years with the cancer. She receives steroid injections in her nose to keep the tumor smaller but I sincerely believe that it is the great quality food that has contributed to her overall health. BTW my cancer kitty is nice and big, she hasn't lost any weight at all and I also attribute that to this food. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in keeping your cat around & in good condition for many years. … more
