The Merrick Difference


Merrick - Whole Health Made Right

The Revolution Starts in the Bowl.

This is the new beginning that signals the end of cat food as it was. For the past several years we’ve been perfecting our recipes by using cutting-edge nutritional research, constantly reviewing supply partners, and conducting quality assurance with our expert panel of cats. In doing so we have created 11 world-class recipes that coincide with an all-new packaging design and mark the beginning of a pet food revolution.

It is our pledge to continue making food that is of the highest standards of nutritional excellence by using only the finest ingredients. We remain dedicated to our passion for perfecting recipes that cats everywhere love. That is why Merrick acquired Castor & Pollux Natural Pet Works, a privately held natural organic pet food company, to further expand into the super-premium pet food category. This is how standards are made, not just for us, but for the entire pet food industry. Because we believe that pets should have it all.

No Ingredients From China

From Farm to Bowl, using fresh, regional ingredients is a better approach. We select the highest quality ingredients from American farmers and ranchers throughout the four seasons of the year. Buying from family farms across the American heartland has several advantages. Not only do we support local communities, but also freshness and food safety.

With fewer distributors, handlers, and warehouses, ingredients get to us faster from the farm. When you know where your food comes from and who grows it, you know a lot more about that food.

Because we have set this standard for ourselves, Merrick foods contain no ingredients from China – no foods, no vitamins, no minerals.

The ingredients? They speak for themselves.

Food in its purest state, unadulterated by artificial additives, sweeteners, colorings and preservatives, takes Merrick to an unprecedented level.

Real Meats: Our high-quality beef, chicken, duck, turkey, salmon and lamb ingredients, supply amino acids that build hair, skin, nails, muscles and tendons. Animal-based proteins contain all the essentials that cats need and provide higher digestibility than plant proteins.

Healthy Fats: Healthy fats are an important component of a cat’s diet to provide a concentrated source of energy for storage, utilization and supply of essential fatty acids that are not synthesized by the cat’s metabolic system. Two types of fatty acids most recognized for the health of cats, especially their skin and coat, that all of our recipes contain are Omega-3 and Omega-6.

Veggies & Fruits: Vegetables and fruits contain fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are beneficial to the cat by enhancing overall nutrition, including gut health, which is essential for absorption of nutrients and immune system function.

It’s time to stop just feeding your pet. Start giving your pet real, whole foods.

It’s more than just food. It’s Food Worthy of a Fork™

It all starts in the Merrick Kitchen, where we put cooking and quality under one roof.

Even the smallest of details are big priorities. It begins by qualifying every ingredient for freshness before accepting it into our kitchen to create recipes that appeal to human and pet palates.

Everything we make at Merrick is made in small batches so that our food is monitored at every step. This includes ensuring that every meal delivers the balance of nutrients guaranteed on the label. Finally, we carefully test all finished recipes to assure that they exceed food and safety standards.

Our five-star kitchen and manufacturing facilities uphold strict guidelines well defined by the FDA. We continue to further enhance our food-safety performance and quality management systems by partnering with NSF Cooke and Thurber, Safe Quality Food (SQF), and HACCP.

Higher in quality protein

Cats thrive on quality protein and healthy fats, which is why every Merrick recipe starts with deboned meat as the first component. In our dry recipes, meat with high levels of protein is the first, second and third ingredients used.

Merrick believes that food is fuel, not filler.

To balance our dry nutrition, the dry recipes lead with 70 74% poultry and fish ingredients. After cooking, each bowl has 38.5% to 41% guaranteed levels of protein. Then we add the exact amount of vegetables and fruits required to give cats more of what they need. Cats thrive on a grain free diet high in quality protein with moderate fat levels and low levels of carbohydrates. That’s why Merrick Purrfect Bistro formulas are all 100% Grain Free. This high quality grain free diet is fortified with vitamins, minerals, probiotics, and antioxidants.

Merrick’s balanced recipes ensure that pets will enjoy every second of their dinner.

Seeing the results proves our point.

Optimal Weight and Increased Energy: Each recipe has industry-leading levels of protein and healthy fats to support optimal weight and increased energy.

Healthy Skin and Shiny Coat: We use standard-setting amounts of Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids to support healthy skin and coats.

Healthy Digestive Track: Highly digestible meat proteins, peas, apples and blueberries support and improve digestive function.

Can you “see” how healthy your cat is from the nutrition you feed? We can.
