Hi there are the merrick cans BPA free?
Answer by ChewyDec 27, 2017
Merrick doesn't use any BPA in their cans. They are tin coated steel (inside and outside) with an organic coating over the tin on the inside of the can.

is this a pate? or is it slices of chicken or chunks of chicken?
Answer by ChewyAug 30, 2017
The texture of this formula is pate.

In this description the cans say food is approved for "all life stages" but on the cans I received when I ordered this food it reads "adult". My cat is still a kitten, so I confused: is it only for adults, or is it for all life stages, including kittens?
Answer by ChewyJan 12, 2021
This recipe is formulated to meet the nutritional levels for All Life Stages, including kittens.

Do you offer Merick grain-free chicken in the smaller (2.8 ounce) cans? My cat won't eat the food after the can has been open for more than a day.
Answer by ChewyFeb 13, 2018
At this time this formula is only available in a 5 ounce can.

Food has changed

My cats only eat Merrick, Chicken pate and Chicken limited ingredient, because it is what they have loved for years. However they won't eat some cans now, especially the recent case of limited ingredient chicken. Neither one of them (always very hungry and good eaters) would touch the stuff. Something has changed in this formula or the entire case was spoiled. I noticed from the prior reviews this has happened to other customers. Now I have an entire case they won't eat. Cats aren't happy and neither am I.

By Tias05 on Apr 2, 2022 loved this.

I thought my cat was going to knock me over to get at this food. I popped the top and when he got a wiff of the contents he started screaming his fool head off. In the time it took me to walk 14 feet across the room he was clawing at me to get it in his dish. To say he devoured this food is an understatement. He's usually a nibbler. Not with this food. He woofed it down like a dog!

Poor quality

Ever since it came back in stock, poor quality. Too thick, cat can't eat it. And price continues to increase and quality decrease. Merrick has now lost me as customer for all of our pets.

My Mo loves this!

Our usual cat food was out of stock for my last order so I was in a panic mode since Mo's digestive system is very sensitive to change in diet. I am having some trouble with her change over to this food, which is very similar to her normal LID Chix/Peas food. Mo took to this very quickly! She begs for it. It is a little "soupy" for a pate but she loves it that way. I don't truly ever "run out" of her food so luckily stocked an extra case so the plan was to change her over slowly but I am having issues with changing even with the slow progression and she does not like pumpkin but again, I do not blame this food, rather her sensitive system. I would highly recommend Merrick LID Real Chicken Recipe.

Merrick limited ingredient Chicken Pate catfood

My cats love this brand and type! They are very finicky. You were out of stock of the Merrick limited Turkey pate, so I had to try another type that they would eat. I went through 6 brands and they would never eat them twice. I was grateful to Chewy for crediting my account for the items they wouldn't eat. Thank you!

Merrick LID my cat's favorite!

My cat is required to eat a limited ingredient diet for her inflammation. We went through a variety of brands before finally finding Merrick which she loves. Will eat the other flavors as well, Duck, Salmon, Turkey. She cleans her plate!

Bad batch of canned Merrick.

Something was wrong with this case of Merrick. The edges of the food inside were brown and pulled away from the can. The food is a strange consistency.

It’s a Hit!

My Mitzi is finicky. Not extremely finicky. But This is the ONE wet food she will completely eat the entire can. I’m relieved to not have to waste so much anymore.
