My vet recommend putting one of my cats with some immune system and allergy issues on a grain free diet…and then we adopted a kitten that had some stomach issues on food with grain. We tried other companies food and settled on this one because I like the ingredients..first ingredient is chicken..I found it hard to accept that other grain free foods first ingredient is not a meat source like chicken, fish etc. And the price is reasonable. My cats love it and I know that they are getting a good product.
I am still transitioning my cats to this food, so my opinion may be better at a later date. So far, 1 of my cats absolutely loved this food from the start. The other 2 are picking out the pieces of their old food from their bowls and leaving most of this in their bowls uneaten. It is too soon for me to comment on any changes in health status/appearances as I have only been feeding this for about a week and a half.
All 10 of our cats LOVE Merrick Purrfect Bistro Grain Free foods, both the dry (Healthy Chicken and Healthy Senior) and all the canned varieties. In fact, they go nuts for it. You'd think it was catnip!
All 10 cats (ages 16 years to just under one year old) have beautiful, glossy fur and are much healthier since we ditched the "big name" stuff, which is loaded with fillers and grains, especially corn, which is a no-no for cats. Just compare ingredients; you'll see. In fact, one of our cats has diabetes, which now is under control without medication thanks to these foods.
Why 10 cats? It all started with two daughters ... :)
My Siamese is allergic to fish. She breaks out above her eyes and scratches like crazy. Merrick fish free is great for her. No itching and hair loss. Most cat food has fish in it, so this is a great food for her. She is sleek and shiney. If your cat has skin problems, this is a great food for her.
Most cat owners don't realize that there furry family member is an obligate carnivore. Cats MUST have protein, preferably raw meat. Obligate carnivore shouldn't be fed grains and fillers. Merrick is one of the few kibble cat foods not containing grains. This is very, very good. Get your cat off grains and fillers. If you can't find a fresh rodent every day to feed him/her then this is the next best thing!
I have 3 cats, 1 has always thrown up, 2 are overweight and all 3 would occasionally get diarrhea. I started to do some research and thought it could be a grain allergy and the cat food they were on was made almost entirely of corn. So I switched to Merrick grain free. My cats loved it right away! There were no stomach issues usually associated with switching foods. The one cat stopped vomiting, 2 cats have started to lose weight and all 3 don't have diarrhea anymore! Results were immediate, I wish I had switched years ago.
I have a 7 month old minx cat and she has had a lot of bowl problems. I have tried several brands that had said sensitive stomach and they helped but the problem with runny feces still happened every couple days. After some web searching i found that grains could be the culprit and decided to try something grain free. The price is much cheaper than the sensetive stomach and the food and it sounds much healthier. Its been about a week now and not one accident. No runny feces. No gas. My cat also seems more active. I was afraid that she wouldnt eat it when mixing it slowly into her old food but she gobbles it up like candy. Hopefully this will fix her for good so she can be happy. Overall i rate this product very good however i only gave it four stars on account i have to order online since its not available at any stores near by.
I've been feeding my kitty grain free food from Canidae for about 2 years now. She had a tough time getting used to it and even after a year she preferred Royal Canin. That is until she tried Merrick grain free chicken. She LOVES this food. She smelled it for a couple seconds (first introduction) and then proceeded to practically inhale the food. I put it in her bowl that had some Canidae grain free in it and she literally ate around the Canidae. Highly recommend!
I have a kitty with a very sensitive stomach and she thrived on Merrick's Before Grain formula. It seems they've replaced it with this Bistro formula because I can't find Before Grain anywhere. Bistro has bits of carrots and nuts and who knows what else mixed in with the regular kibble. With Bistro, my kitty is now throwing up multiple times a day. We will be switching immediately to a different grain-free. Disappointing because the other formula was so good!
