Excellent food!

My cats love this, and it’s so convenient to purchase it via Chewy! It was a day earlier than scheduled, which is good, because they’re running out!

No more barf

My cat who would barf daily or in the middle of the night no longer barfs anymore! Guess he was sensitive to certain ingredients that aren’t in this bag of food! I will be buying again! Happy kitty and happy owner!

Five cats refuse to eat this

Ours have eaten the Merrick wet food in the past, so when looking for something for sensitive stomachs, thought we'd try this. It's a no-go. None of them like it. I guess we'll stick with Hill's. Very disappointing. Can't blame them, though; the Hill's smells much better, even to a human nose. :D

My boy Paws

My 15 year old cat Paws loves this food, his coat is shinier and he had a scabby spot on his side that is now gone, Thank you Merrick and Chewy.

Not a fan

I’m searching for something to help my cat’s sensitive stomach. He didn’t care for this food.

It's a no go!

6 cats wouldn't touch this. Very surprised because they eat the Merrick Purrfect Bistro limited ingredient canned food.

Merrick Dry Food for Sensitive Stomach

I am hoping that returning to this cat food that it will help clear up my cat's skin issue. It developed when I had to switch to a different type due to this being temporarily unavailable. He didn't have this issue while eating this.

Happy Fur Kids

I ordered this because what I was using was not available. My cats love it and I'm happy with the ingredients. I also feed them Merrick grain free wet food, so I'll continue with this brand. Thank you!

This food works amazing with my boy Tucker. He was constantly throwing up his dry food even with a slow feeder and having it elevated (per vets instructions)! I tried switched to this because of the smaller kibble size and he's no longer throwing it back up!

Don't order this product off Chewy

This sensitive stomach food is normally great for my cat but my first time ordering on Chewy, when I opened the bag the food was in an unusual consistency with a lot of the food powedery and broken up. My cat who normally likes this food did not want to eat it.
