Questions & Answers

14 Customer Questions

How many cups are in a 12lb bag?
Answer by ChewyMar 21, 2018
The 12 pound bag contains approximately 48 cups of food.

Are the ingredients non-gmo?
Answer by ChewySep 15, 2017
Merrick is unable to guarantee that their farmers produce non-GMO produce and livestock.

I heard that Purina owns Merrick now. Is that true and has this or other Merrick recipes' nutrition content changed since?
Answer by ChewyDec 09, 2017
Merrick was purchased by Nestlé Purina back in 7/21/2015 but continues to do business as usual. This acquisition has allowed to the brand to continue to innovate new products while improving the one's that they currently have available.

Do all ingredients come from USA sources?
Answer by ChewyDec 20, 2018
The majority of Merrick's ingredients are sourced from the USA, however in certain circumstances some ingredients may come from another country to ensure the highest quality possible. Merrick outsources a few ingredients from other countries like lamb and venison from New Zealand, duck and rabbit from France, and vitamins and minerals premix from Canada and Germany.

I liked- she didn't😸

Unable to get old brand- company seems to be going through post Covid changes. Looking for chicken potato. Smells good but she passed on this. Just like people - she likes potato, sweet potato, not so much!

Merrick Dry food

Our 3 kitties seem to love this food. They gobbled down quickly the first time we gave it to them. It however has a lot of powdered food that we sift out, otherwise it builds up in the little cup we use to fill their bowls. We mixed it with the American Journey Chicken dry food.

Bad Replacement

The bag I just bought not only smelled like dried garbage but it was ground up into practically dust. My cats have enjoyed this new food the last three months but refused to touch whatever was sent this recent purchase. Also going to highlight that my cats never throw up and the last couple of days after trying to feed them this I’ve come home from 15 hour work days with bowls barely touched and vomit on the floor. Sad to say I won’t be buying again.

Wish I hadn't

I switched to this flavor after Merrick discontinued the Limited Ingredient Chicken and oh boy do I wish I didn't. I have 1 cat that must be allergic to potatoes (and there is 3 different potato ingredients in this one) because he started peeing all over the house. 2 others have gained weight with this and one of those had a major flare up of his hyperesthesia. One cat lost weight, but that is because he stopped eating dry food. Totally switching to a new dry food because potato protein is an ingredient in all of the Merricks flavors. I miss their grain free potato free flavor..

No Issues!

Had to switch foods when all 23 cats were throwing up 2 batches of same food shipped to me by Chewy. This seemed to help all the tummies.

sweet potato

both of my cats can't stand this and i believe it's because they don't like the taste of sweet potatoes/yams

My cats didn't love or hate it.

It's great quality and I was hoping my cats would be chomping this down w no issues. They didn't go for it like I wanted them to do. I fed the feral cat colonies with it.

Shipping Issue

I just opened the bag of Merrick Perfect Bistro dry cat food and it appears to have been crushed in shipment.

Cat wouldn't touch it and it smells like we wouldn't go near it either

Our cat was a rescue and once starved and she refused to eat this food. It doesn't smell like cat food, rather like wet cardboard so I can't imagine this being appetizing for her either...

Dog and cat food arrived via fed x, Bothe boxes were crinkled and the dog food bags indide split and was mostly missing. Called cust support and without any problem, both bags were replaced. Good old time customer support that you can't get anywhere else,especially with the high prices and shortages. Thanks again
