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 need up to 2 times and pregnant / nursing cat 3 times the Adult requirement.

  • Merrick Purrfect Bistro

    By on

    My fur baby, who is 17-3/4 years old was having problems eating his previous food because it was too large and thick for him to chew. I called Chewy, spoke to one of their great representatives, and she suggested this food for Rusty. Got it, it's tiny pieces, which he has no problem eating now.

  • Merricks is the best

    By on

    This dry food is perfect for my cats. I've had cats all my life and Merricks is the best quality I've seen. I also own a pet service and I recommend this food and this service often

  • My cats say no way

    By on

    When chewy stopped carrying my kitties Fromm food they offered up to 25off to try another and this one was on their list. I went to the pet store bought a tiny bag of their usual to help them transition over. My cats are 11 and 15 every morning once they got the full Merrick, my 11 year old would throw some, not all, back up. We love chewy and will continue to use them for their canned food which they get at night, but I will need to get them something my 11 year old can keep down. At least the coupon covered the price

  • My Cats Turned Up Their Noses

    By on

    I have 4 rescue indoor cats that range in age 7-15. My oldest baby has been declining in health for some time now, and I have tried ALL kinds of different foods to get him to eat more. Two of my other cats are over weight and I am trying to find something that suits them also. I am sure this is a good brand, but unfortunately ALL of my cats will not touch it. My vet said to just give my oldest anything he will eat at this point.

  • Merrick Senior Dry Cat Food

    By on

    All of our cats accepted this food. It was fine for our older cat with a "sensitive stomach". One of the reasons we are trying grain free. The food comes as small pellets of uniform shape, size and color. It is meant for seniors but all ages ate it when given the chance. I will buy it again and try Merrick's other offerings as well.

  • Cats don't like it

    By on

    I have two cats one is 20 and the other is 4. Neither of them like it. They eat it but very slowly so I have to spruce it up by mixing it with other dry foods. Its going to last me forever...

    I have 11 cats and they turned their noses up at this dry food. I have a couple of feral cats and they wouldn't even eat it. Will not purchase again.
