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 and pregnant or nursing females may consume 2 - 3 times the recommended amount daily.

Transition Instructions

Mix Merrick's food with your current pet's food over the course of 5-7 days. Continuously increase the amount of the Merrick food while decreasing the amount in your dog or cat's current diet.

Only the Best Ingredients Make the Cut

Merrick's Limited Ingredient Diet recipes are specially formulated with a limited number of carefully selected ingredients to provide complete and balanced nutrition for your cat with food sensitivities. They provide all the nutrition you'd expect from Merrick, with very few ingredients.

These recipes keep it simple with a single source of animal protein — including salmon, turkey, chicken or duck — and easily digestible carbohydrates, for the perfect balance of ingredients. They are formulated to deliver a range of important vitamins, minerals and fatty acids necessary for the overall well-being of your cat.

Fresh Ingredients Are In

The finest, freshest ingredients included in these flavorful blends are harvested from local ranchers and farmers for quality and sustainability assurance. And all recipes include no meat by-products or artificial preservatives.

    all 7 cats love this

    By on

    hardly ever do all 7 of my kitties agree on a food, but this one is a hit! i use dry food as a treat to entice my asthma kitty to come out when it's time for his meds, and he doesn't hesitate or hide knowing he's going to get his inhaler after he gets his treats. it works as well as temptations, which i am happy to finally be rid of. with some of the other healthier kibbles, he started to hide when it was time for his meds. apparently those, "treats" weren't worth the meds he knows he has to get after. also, the itchy rash one of my other kitties had above her eyes from rawz chicken and turkey kibble cleared up after switching to this as their treat. I suspected it was the rawz kibble, but hardly ever do all 7 of my kitties agree on a food, but this one is a hit! i use dry food as a treat to entice my asthma kitty to come out when it's time for his meds, and he doesn't hesitate or hide knowing he's going to get his inhaler after he gets his treats. it works as well as temptations, which i am happy to finally be rid of. with some of the other healthier kibbles, he started to hide when it was time for his meds. apparently those, "treats" weren't worth the meds he knows he has to get after. also, the itchy rash one of my other kitties had above her eyes from rawz chicken and turkey kibble cleared up after switching to this as their treat. I suspected it was the rawz kibble, but i wasn't sure until i replaced it with this. i'm not sure why this has such a low rating. they love this better than a few wellness kibble flavors i've tried too. basically, they love this even though it's healthier! They usually only love junk food like temptations this much. … more

    My cat didn't like it

    By on Top 25 Contributor

    My cat really likes the canned version, so I thought he'd like the dry version too. Nope - he wouldn't eat the dry. I noticed the dry version does not have as good reviews as the canned version, but I will admit my cat is rather picky. Before I ordered, I contacted Merrick and asked if they had any samples. Merrick doesn't give samples, but does guarantee your pet will like their food. Merrick told me I could return the food where I bought it if my cat didn't like it. Chewy is awesome. I contacted Chewy and explained my cat didn't like the food and asked if I could return it. The rep immediately told me she'd refund my card and suggested I donate the food to my local shelter.

    Great for digestive issues

    By on

    This food has been a dream come true for my foster cats that have digestive issues. One adult with chronic diarrhea and also a litter of kittens with soft, unformed stools. After trying several other options, I transitioned them to this food and within a couple weeks they were having completely normal stools. I have been feeding this to my own cats for the last 2 years and they love it.

    My 8 cats will NOT eat this food

    By on

    I have 8 cats and have always bought quality kibble for them. They are not particular as long as it is not the cheap food. They will not eat this at all - left it for 2 days. I have a full bag left.................will feed it to the dogs in small quantities until gone. Will never buy again.

    The boys didn't like this at all

    By on

    if you have Persians, you know they're pretty picky about the food they eat. They ate a few pieces of this and that was it. The birds are now eating it! They LOVE Merrick's wet food but for some reason, the dry just doesn't cut it with them. Again, their wet food is outstanding, smells like real food, and is just amazing.

    Was always a good brand and...

    By on

    I've used Merrick foods in the past, but when they sold out to Purina, I worried about changes in the quality of the food. Reading the label on Chewy, it appears there have been no changes, so decided to give it a try again. I make a mix of GOOD foods for my tenrecs and hedgehogs and knew this was one food they had approved of in the past. Happily, they once again accepted and approved of this food, so I will continue to monitor the quality and use it in my mix as long as it continues to meet my rigid requirements.

    Packs a punch!

    By on

    It's so packed with the bare minimum of ingredients, that my cat doesn't need to eat as much as other dry cat food. Her body (in my unscientific opinion) knows a smaller amount will provide her with the nutrition she needs, so she doesn't gorge like she used to.

    We purchased this food for our hedgehog because she requires high protein and limited ingredients. This food is perfect for her. Thanks Chewy.com, you're amazing!
