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.

    My cat is obsessed with duck and this the perfect meal for him

    By on

    When you open this pouch, you can really smell the duck and my cat really goes for it. I feel good about the ingredients and the quality of the food. I wish the morsels were a little smaller as my cats are also seniors and have had some teeth pulled.

    Great for allergies

    By on

    This has been a life saver! I have a cat who is allergic to everything but duck, goose and turkey. I feed her raw, but with raw, you need to watch them eat it and take it away quickly. I needed something I could leave out for longer. I put this down and she has it gone in about 2 hours. Makes my mornings so much easier! I’ve tried every LID out there and she hates them. She really likes this.

    Good quality but...

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    Good quality but not a favorite for my cats, including the ferals who should eat anything. Decent amount of gravy with large chunks. Probably won't purchase again considering the price.

    Better Read The Label

    By on

    I bought lots of Merrick products with duck or rabbit thinking the labels' implications on content were true. They are not. This food also contains beef and other stuff you may be trying to avoid

    My cats used to eat Fancy Feat. I decided to switch to Backcountry because this one seems healthier, but my cats hate it...

    Merrick Backcountry grain free morsels

    By on

    My cats love Merrick food. Especially the Backcountry morsels in gravy. They liked this one, but not as much as the turkey and chicken flavors.. but it's nice to put in to the rotation of flavors!

    high quality food for IBD

    By on

    I strongly recommend! My16-yr old cat was getting sick on prescription foods for vet-diagnosed irritable bowel disease so I needed to do something different. I tried this--duck--as it is also a meat that she has never eaten. She loves this, esp. the gravy. I put the closed package in a bowl of warm water. After it's warmed up and in her feeding dish, i cut the bigger pieces smaller. I alternate feeding her this with another Merrick brand--duck canned pate. She is gaining weight and not throwing up any more! Any left-overs are sealed with a clothes pin and put in the frig. Warm & serve as before. :)

    A Hit with My Guys

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    No reluctance here. My four cats get different foods depending on their various medical issues, but the two who get this one dive right in! I am going to try some of the other flavors as well. One warning: this food contains egg whites. That's not a common ingredient in cat food, but one of my other cats has a major allergic reaction to eggs, so this is on his 'can't have' list.
