Questions & Answers

6 Customer Questions

Does anyone know why the duck Formula has carrageenan Yet the other flavors do not? Thank you
Answer by ChewyFeb 02, 2018
Merrick uses Carrageenan in select canned recipes to ensure the most appealing texture.

The increase in the caloric content makes no sense. The fat protein and water content are exactly the same but somehow the new formula gained 36 calories. How is this so?
Answer by ChewyDec 20, 2019
For the new formula, the amount of Deboned Chicken was increased and the amount of Chicken Liver was decreased. This as well as the removal of Carrageenan contributed to the increase in calorie content.

What is the phosphorus and magnesium content on dry matter bases ?
Answer by ChewyJul 25, 2019
This formula has approximately 1.86% phosphorous and 0.08% magnesium on a dry matter basis.

The label says "pate" but the description says "cooked in whisker-licking, hydrating gravy." Which is true?
Answer by ChewyJan 30, 2018
This product is cooked in gravy then formed in pate with gravy flavoring.

My two Ginger brothers, Kroyos & Helyos, were very excited when the box arrived. They were more excited as they recognized the item inside as a package of cans, which meant more of their favorite food. I was pleased, too, and very impressed by the speed of delivery, and the packaging ... not a bent can in the lot. Thank you so very much! This was especially exciting as this purchase was on a gift card from a dear friend. Thank you everyone!

This batch is dry hard and rubbery.

My cat's loved the first case of Duck pate was moist and the consistency was perfect. My cat's do not like the case we just got, it's not the quality I was expecting.

Good quality but Dry

Compared to other Merrick wet cat food I've purchased, this lot seems to be overcooked and dry. My cats don't enjoy it as much.

They love it!

It was a bit too rich for them the first time I gave it to them (5 cats). They are all older from 8-18 years old. 2 Threw up the first time. But they have adjusted and crave it. My 18 year old female won't eat any other food. I switch up chicken, duck, and several other flavors. This is by far their favorite.

Cats hate it

I have 2 cats. Neither of them will eat this food. We have feral cats in my neighborhood. I've left the food outside for them. It's still there. No cats will eat this. Don't waste your money.

not sure what happened

I had ordered chicken and duck recipes and the duck was kinda juicy but the chicken is super dry? Almost like a weird spread texture. It has an awful smell but I didn't see mold and my cat licked up her plate. The only thing is it gives her terribly smelly poop and frequently gives her constipation as well. I have the cans that expire February 2025 - not sure what is going on with Merrick but seeing other reviews it seems something odd is going on with all of their batches. I will probably not buy this for a while once our current batch ends. I only bought it because it was on a really big discount sale.

Soupy Consistency

I've ordered this food a handful of times because my 2 cats love it, but something changed with the consistency. My cats nor the stray cats I feed wouldn't get near it. I called Chewy and they replaced it, but the replacement was still had the same consistency. As soon as you open the can, you have to stay back because it's runny and messy. It's nowhere near a pate texture. Expiration date is Aug. 2024. I hope Merrick fixed the issue. The other pate flavors, like rabbit, chicken, turkey, etc. have great consistency. It's just this one.

So inconsistent

I have been a Merrick customer for the last 12 plus years. The duck has been one of the favorites of all cats Ive had. The last 6 months, the contents has not been consistent with its texture or amount of gravy. Sometimes, I'd open the can, and it would be filled with so much greasy gravy it actually spills over, other times, it is dry!? Why?

Formula changed cats hate it now

The duck flavor was a 5 star up until this point. The food is not the same texture as it used to be and the formula has changed as well. I had this on an auto ship and my cats loved this food so much that they would lick theirs bowls clean and now they leave over half the food in their bowls and won’t eat it

Food has changed

I can't be certain but I think they must have changed the formula. I HATE when pet food companies do this. My cats loved this food before and now they won't touch it. The food is lighter in color and a weird consistentcy. If they did indeed change it then this is going to be extremely hurtful for my cats as this is one of the few foods that don't include fish. I just don't understand why companies do this. If they didn't change it, then something is wrong with this batch.
