"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

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.

Merrick Before Grain Salmon Formula Grain-Free Dry Cat Food is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Eh 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Merrick Before Grain Salmon Formula 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!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 3 out of 5 by from 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 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Cat Food A high quality cat food without all the unnecessary grain ingredients. One of the favorite foods of our three cats, without any digestive after-effects. Small pieces, good for cats with dental issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats love this food. I used to buy this catfood at my local feedstore and was dismayed to find it was no longer available there. I am happy to find it offered online! I have three cats and they love this food. I buy both the salmon and the chicken flavors. In addition to the kitties satisfaction, I also have noticed less stool to clean up. A win/win situation for us both, Thank you!
