Rated 4 out of 5 by gaitdhorsewoman Help for seniors
My 15 year old cat started struggling to poop and after looking for a senior food that was up to my standards and had what I was looking for. Merick was as close as I could find and worked well getting her system back on track.
I now mix it in with the other cats' food as 3 are now 9 years old and want to try and stay ahead of the aging process.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 3catsandakitten My cats won't eat it
Unfortunately, I bought 3 bags for my 3 elderly cats and it looks like they will last forever because my cats won't touch it.

My cat has irritable bowel disease. After awhile, he turned his nose up at his Royal Canin prescription food. After trying everything else in the house, I found this in my closet. A friend had given it me to drop at the local shelter. Tried it on Mr. Picky and he ate it!
I would give it five stars except that it is very "dusty". When you get to the bottom on the bag, there is a lot of dust the cat won't eat. It sticks to the bottom of the bowl. Just be careful to sift it out when the supply gets low.
Cat's IBD seems to be under control using this food.

I have a very picky older cat. I've been trying to switch her to wet food for years and have tried practically every trick in the book. Eventually, I decided it would be best to pour my efforts into finding a good dry food instead.
Much to my surprise, she took to this food immediately. She even liked it better than her old one! She's a bit overweight, too, and I was worried that it might not do much for her size since this was formulated for older, not overweight cats.
After just a week on this food, however, I noticed a lot of changes; her fur was softer, her stools were better (before they had been so/so), and she had actually started to shed off a bit of weight.
Now, after a month on this food, she has truly blossomed into a very happy, healthy senior lady. It's still not as good as wet food, of course, but as far as dry food goes, this is an outstanding choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pdpal Excellent food!
I have five cats and usually feed them the Merrick canned cat food but wanted to try some of this dry food as a treat. Got the bag and put some in a couple bowls and three went crazy for this food. The other two sniffed it at first as they had not had dry in so many years but finally started eating it and loved it. I was so happy to see all of them enjoying it and I know this brand is really healthy for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ginny456 Only food my cat does not throw up!
And I have tried 100!
Inky is 18 and although he has a few grey hairs showing up, he looks like a whipper snapper!
Always had a hard time with food though. My other 8 year old loves it too and has never had digestive issues.
It's a win~win!

Rated 4 out of 5 by meowwow Must taste pretty good!
Everybody is eating this pretty well. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 was that I also ordered Halo Senior chicken and salmon, and they dive and gobble that one, while, with this one, they are more polite, but at least they are all eating it willingly (I don't have to disguise it buried in other food).
I'm glad they like it because I think Merrick is a good, wholesome food.
