        Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Before Grain Dry Cat Food:

        My fussy fur person LOVES this food!

        When I switched her from the grocery store food to no grain, due to allergies, I tried several brands of no grain dry food.

        Fur person turned up her nose at all but this was a winner from the start.

        I have seen dramatic improvements in her allergies and coat since switching to this food.

        A great product.

          My vet told me to either stop giving my 3 cats dry food or find one with no grain. This is perfect! The cats love the taste and they are slim and active. Before starting "Before Grain" they were getting fat and a bit lazy. That's all changed. Thank you for this great product.

            My cats prefer dry food over wet canned food. I'm happy that at least I have found a natural and healthy dry food for them. I feed them both dry food and canned food everyday.

              I wanted a healthier dry food for my two cats and they both took to this right away.(tuna flavor) I like it because I know their not eating a bunch of "junk." One of my cats had a blockage and I weaned him off of the junk dry food the vet said he had to eat for the rest of his life and feed him this food once a day and fresh chicken. He has been totally fine.

                  Out of four older cats, one tends to throw up undigested dry food. The BG Tuna brand has eliminated his digestion problem. And even better,the cats only consume apx. 1/4c in morning and 1/4 c in evening, each. Great protien cat food. Who really needs all those extra carbs anyways?

                  My vet told me to find a dry food that was high in protein and low in carbs to help prevent my indoor cats from getting overweight. This dry food is left for them to eat "on demand" and twice a day they get a good quality canned food. They look great.
                  My one complaint is that you've done away with that terrific zip lock top on the bag. Could you PLEASE bring that back?????

                  Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Before Grain Dry Cat Food:

                  We got a kitten about a year ago and though he's a wonderful cat we've had problems with diarrhea since we got him. We took him to the vet for the disorder three times, and after treatment after treatment for different things, he still had diarrhea. Our vet recommended trying different high quality foods to see if it might be a food allergy to grains. I researched different brands and this one seemed the best so we tried it.

                  It worked!! It did take at least a month to 6 weeks before we noticed an improvment, so don't give up if you don't see an immediate improvement. They've been eating it for about three months and the last two months his bowel movements are much more regular and he's a healthier and happier cat. And our other cat likes the food as well and has in fact lost a little weight and is looking very sleek and fine. I'm thinking that because the catfood is higher in protein they eat less, so I think this may be a good food for inactive indoor cats. We're very pleased! It's a bit pricey, but then so was taking the cat to the vet all the time.
