FAQ

Does Merrick have coupons available?

From time to time, we do offer special promotions on our food and treats. The best way to ensure you know about these offers is to sign up for our newsletter. Please visit e-mail sign up to ensure you don’t miss out.

Are any Merrick products currently being recalled?

No. None of Merrick Pet Care's recipes are being recalled.

What is the difference between Merrick grain-based and grain-free foods?

Some pets develop food intolerances or food allergies and grains can be difficult for a pet's stomach and intestines to break down. If your pet has a sensitive stomach, our Grain Free recipes can help their digestive system problems. At Merrick, our Grain Free recipes feature higher levels of proteins, omegas, glucosamine and chondroitin.

Do Merrick’s Grain Free recipes contain fillers and chemicals?

We are committed to using only the purest ingredients in our recipes. Our recipes contain no ingredients from China; no poultry by-products; no artificial additives or preservatives; no artificial flavors or colors; no corn, wheat or soy; and no glutens. We've excluded these ingredients because we believe pet food should be fuel, not filler.

    They say "It's a no!"

    By LynnM on Jul 3, 2021

    The product looked pretty good, but neither of the cats liked it. They lick the bowls clean with the rabbit variety, with this duck variety, they just like the gravy. Oh well.

    Cat likes the food

    By Mikey4ever on Jun 26, 2021

    My cat likes this food, I mix in a few freeze dried pieces of duck and she gobbles it up, more so than the turkey recipe. The sodium is high though so I feed the food sparingly.

    Cats No Like

    By Snoozer on Jun 6, 2021

    Served this one evening. After sitting through the night, next day, tossed the following morning. However, Chewy (again!) was kind and I will receive a refund, shelter cats will get some food!

    All of my cats say Yes!

    By Catzzz on Apr 7, 2021

    This appeals to all three of my cats, though the sauce is more popular than the chunks. I'll continue to buy! We have IBD and other allergy issues so duck, without chicken, is always appreciated.

    Struggles to finish...

    By CatDaddio on Dec 25, 2020

    My male tabby has a great appetite, Merrick seems like high-quality food, but he consistently doesn't want to finish a 3oz package of the duck, licks up gravy and leaves the chunks. By contrast he LOVES the rabbit one and will eat (2) 3oz packages of that licked completely clean. I'll just be getting the rabbit from now on.

    Cat enjoys this, very moist

    By KHP359 on Feb 3, 2021 top1000Contributor

    My cat is enjoying this and another flavor. I did not have to convince her at all to try it. It is very moist and has enough for me to give her 2 feedings from it.

    UTI and Allergy cat approved

    By Volkyra on Aug 18, 2020

    My male cat is prone to stress induced UTIs and has an autoimmune disorder such that he can't have chicken or shellfish. These packets have been an amazing option for him- no allergens and are low phosphorus (211 mg/100kcal) to help keep his urinary issues in check. Highly recommend. I also feed the rabbit version because he loves that too (255 mg/100 kcal).
