    Cats love it.

    By saspub on Jun 30, 2019

    I have 3 cats, one of whom has IBS. She didn't do well on I/D but we were able (thru trial and error) to determine that plain chicken was ok (she now thinks every time we cook chicken its for her). My vet then had me try some limited ingredient other limited ingredient chickens but she had issues, then I have 3 cats, one of whom has IBS. She didn't do well on I/D but we were able (thru trial and error) to determine that plain chicken was ok (she now thinks every time we cook chicken its for her). My vet then had me try some limited ingredient other limited ingredient chickens but she had issues, then I tried Merrick and she does fine on it. All 3 now eat it. I was in a panic when it was unavailable a couple months ago. Chewy actually called me to let me know they were out of it when it was almost time for my autoship. I ended up calling Merrick and was told they were in the process of opening a new canning plant to keep up with demand. They said it would be about a month before they caught up but were able to point me to another online source that still had some cases at the time. It cost more than Chewy but held me for the month (it was more expensive than Chewy but I was desperate). I have noticed differences in the food coloring between cases over the past year (sometimes more tannish, sometimes slightly pinkish) but I haven't noticed any difference in smell (and my cats have never seemed to notice anything). … more

    From hot to not - what changed in the last two months?

    This used to be my cats steady go-to food. He has no teeth, so he can only really eat wet food and it was recommended that I keep him on a high quality, limited ingredient diet.

He has no teeth, so he can only really eat wet food and it was recommended that I keep him on a high quality, limited ingredient diet. This Merrick brand was highly recommended and so I experimented with all the flavors. He was finicky with some and he hated the tuna and would not eat it, but the chicken recipe was his favorite. It was out of stock for a few weeks back in May, but even before that I had noticed a change in the color, texture, and smell of it. It was darker and stinkier, and my cat seemed a lot less interested in eating it. He is very resistant now and I keep having to add his freeze-dried chicken treats mixed in to coax him to finish his food. After this case I am giving up and switching to Blue Wilderness or another brand that he will eat because I am tired of worrying whether will eat or if he is eating enough. Very disappointing. Hey CHEWY!! You all are amazing and I am happy to stay a loyal customer. One request though. If you have any sway with these companies because you buy/sell so much product, please let them know about these issues. I see lots of other reviews indicating a change in this product in the last two months. One person indicated they even contacted Merrick and the company claimed nothing changed. Well me and my cat can detect otherwise. … more
