Questions & Answers

7 Customer Questions

The instructions say "feed 1 can per 3.5 lbs of body weight per day, for kittens up to twice this amount and for mothers up to 3 times this amount." Is this for the 3oz cans or the 5.5oz cans?
Answer by ChewyMay 20, 2019
The feeding recommendations would be based off the 5.5 ounce cans. When feeding a kitten, kittens tend to need a little more nourishment as they are growing so, when feeding a 3 ounce can it is recommended to feed 4 cans for a kitten, or 2 of the 5.5 ounce cans. For a nursing or expecting female, feed 6 of the 3 ounce cans or 3 of the 5.5 ounce cans.

Does this contain DHA?
Answer by ChewyOct 17, 2018
DHA is included in this formula for kittens' healthy development.

Where is the meat sourced from?
Answer by ChewyMay 31, 2020
While all Merrick recipes are made in the USA, they do outsource a few ingredients from other countries. The Lamb and Venison in their recipes is sourced from New Zealand, the Duck and Rabbit are sourced in France, and the Vitamins and Minerals Premix are sourced in Canada and Germany. All other ingredients are sourced in the USA.

on a dry matter basis, what is the carb, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium and calcium content?
Answer by ChewyFeb 18, 2021
This recipe contains approximately 12.16% Carbohydrates, 1.21% Phosphorus, 0.13% Magnesium, 0.78% Sodium and 1.31% Calcium on a Dry Matter basis.

Oily and rancid

My first order was great. This last order that arrived in the last week was oily and rancid in the can, smelled off and my kitten refused it. Chewy is sending me a replacement order, I will update after that arrives.

funky in can, dented

Unfortunately, more than a few cans were dented in this batch, and several were funky/spoiled upon opening as well. Hard to see that money go straight in the trash.

Kitten wet food

I was a little concerned when I was switching my kittens from Fancy Feast to Merrick's wet food as that was all they knew. It turns out I didn't need to worry, they absolutely loved it and with a can split between them, it was gone in seconds. Will order again and when they turn into adults, I will be purchasing the adult brand for them as well. 5 stars!!

Kittens loved but

Something changed?!? :( I had to cancel my auto ship. The kitten formula pate was like a sponge consistency but now it’s mush and falls apart. We used to be able to cut the pate in 4 little slices. It’s almost like it was frozen and defrosted. Total mush. What happened?

My kittens love it!

My kittens love this stuff! Bought after they didn’t like some other kitten wet food I purchased and they can’t get enough. Highly recommend.

Kitten Loves It

I adopted a very skinny and blind kitten. We needed something that she would eat and immediately. I tried every high end dry and she wouldn’t touch them. Tried a couple wet foods and she still wasn’t cleaning her bowl. This stuff she LOVES eats it right down, and it stays there. She’s on her way!!

Best kitten food

My daughter watched our kitten for a few days. She has an older cat. They got along well; but the best experience her cat had was the kitten dinners. He kept eating hers. When we brought our kitty home he kept meowing for the food that my daughter had to go out and buy this brand but for a cat not a kitty. He couldn’t be happier.

Kitten Approved!

My two 10 month old boys were on Wellness Core, but recently got tired of it, so I switched to this and Instinct. They LOVE this. They eat the whole thing in about 10 min. It's very wet and fluffy, so not sure if it's as filling as some others, but they like the taste.

Absolute favorite

I am very choosy about nutrition, and this blend delivers outstanding taste as well as high quality ingredients. Chicken and fish are great together, who knew? Only when you get the balance just right, as this truly Perfect Purr maker proves.
