We believe in feeding dry and canned food in combination, whenever possible, to help increase the level of water in your cat's diet. Please have clean, fresh water available at all times.

We understand that every cat is different and that optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, activity level and environment. Kittens need up to 2 times and pregnant / nursing cat 3 times the adult requirement.

  • Cats love it

    By on

    My two absolutely LOVE Merrick's food. I only regret not buying it for my other cats before they passed. Feeding "big name brands" was always problematic for my previous cats. Resulting in lots of food regurgitated. :( I had not realized the food was the issue until I began feeding this to my two (at the time) kittens. They loved it. Now almost 2 years later they have not once thrown up after eating. I recommend this brand to every cat owner.

  • Healthy grain-free catfood

    By on

    Healthy grain-free cat food for my special needs cat. He has previous history of uric crystals. Even special medicated food had corn in it which caused problems with my cat. Switched to Merrick and my senior cat is back to being healthy and happy. Found this weight control formula and so will introduce it to him, gradually. Hopefully he will trim down to a healthier weight. Being an indoor cat, he does not get the exercise he once had as an outdoor cat. He is 9 years old and still playful with his many toys.

  • My 2 cats LOVE this!

    By on

    I've tried several dry cat foods, and this is the only one that my cats will reliably eat. I serve it with wet food, and by itself, and they are very happy to eat it.

  • Great for weight loss and maintenance

    By on

    I compared many cat foods, trying to find a higher protein, lower fat, lower calorie food, and this was the best for all of them. You still need to ignore the feeding suggestion. And the 7 lb. bag is so economical at chewy, not even offered at that size in the pet store. My cat loves it as well.

  • Cats love it!

    By on

    There were mixed reviews, with some cats loving this cat food and others totally rejecting it. Decided it was worth purchasing one bag to find out what our three cats thought. All three love it. They gobble it up like it was the junk food (what's on sale at the grocery store with pretty colors) that we feed our backyard ferals. Will become our regular indoor dry food.
