Food worthy of a fork. This is the standard to which Merrick holds itself. Recipes that are real and wholesome, made with USDA-inspected deboned meat and the freshest produce. Their recipes have higher quality protein and industry-leading levels of glucosamine and chondroitin. None of their ingredients are ever imported from China. It's health you can see in your dog's bowl and more importantly in your dog. This is the kind of food that pets beg for. After all, they want what we want.
