Rated 5 out of 5 by Kymmi Keeps my cats healthier
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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KathyA My 2 spoiled cats loved it
I have two 18month old cats. They have been very spoiled with the best of foods since adopting them at 4 months. They sniffed this food out, as I still had food left from my previous food, and had put the new bag in the cabinet behind the refrigerator. I noticed one night my male cat jumping on the fridge and opening the cabinet, only to find two previously bitten through holes where at least one had been munching. I gave some to my female cat... She ate more of the food than she would treats! I guess this is a winner for now. I have to wait and see how my male cat's weight is affected. He's a but pudgy while his sister (who eats more food, I'm sure of it) is so, so lean. But can I expect one food to reduce weight in one and increase the weight of another? I'll let you know!

Rated 3 out of 5 by ChiTownCat Okay, but cats got tired of it.
I have four cats, and only feed them grain free foods. I picked up this product when my cats seemed unhappy with their previous food. The first one I tried was the chicken. They liked it for about 2 weeks, then started leaving food in the bowls. I decided to try the salmon one, and that went over a little better, but after a couple months, they didn't seem interested in that one either, and I was having to add more wet food than normal just to get them to eat it. I don't think there's anything wrong with this product as far as ingredients go. However, I don't like the size of the kibble. It's very small, like mini pea-sized. I want my dry food to help keep my cats' teeth clean, and that's not going to happen with something they can just swallow whole. If your cats like it, then that's great. Mine just don't.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lori My cats don't like it at all
I can't believe I bought a big bag of this food as that don't like it.
They like the chicken but will not even touch the fish and I have four cats...

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2Down wonderful product by a wonderful company
This is an excellent dry cat food. Nice, small pieces that cats enjoy - the flavors are great, and all 6 of my cats that are not on a prescription diet love it. I do change foods from time to time and am thrilled that Merrick is making this wonderful feline diet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeano This product has great nutritional value for all life stages!
My two adult cats and two kittens love Merrick before grain dry cat food. I've noticed their fur now has a beautiful glossy sheen and very soft. Before their coats were dull, dry and straw-like. I offer another dry cat food next to Merrick that is grain free also, but, they prefer Merrick and will pass up the other. Merrick is my preferred cat food. Now I will no longer spend hours wondering what cat food to buy and if my cats will eat it!
