This dry food is the best bang for your buck you're going to get on ...
on March 19, 2016
I'm dedicated to making sure my cat is properly fed so she lives a long and healthy life as an indoors cat. This dry food is the best bang for your buck you're going to get on a dry food that meets all the nutritional requirements for a cat that it is possible for a dry food to meet (cats need to eat wet food too and ideally you should supplement with some raw food as well like Stella & Chewys). My cat has been eating this for over a year and her coat is super soft and shiny and people always comment on how 'bright eyed and bushy tailed' and playful she is. She is an obviously happy and cheerful cat and I think this food, which she loves, plays a role in that.
Overall, these are some reasons why I choose Merrick:
- Their dry food is grain free
- The food is produced here in the U.S. so it's not being shipped long distances
- They use USDA inspected meat
- They've been around for 25 years and seem to be recommended by vets
Take a look at the ingredient list for yourself. It compares well to other premium cat foods and is high in crude protein.
