Committed to quality nutrition
When you’re a “my pet is the best pet ever” pet parent, no food could ever be too natural, nutritious or delicious. Believe us, we get it. That’s how we got our start.
Merrick was born over 30 years ago in Garth Merrick’s family kitchen in Hereford, Texas. That’s when Garth began home-cooking food for his beloved dog, Gracie, to make sure she was eating the most wholesome and nutritious food possible.
We’ve grown quite a bit since then—we have a lot more recipes for dogs and cats and a much bigger team—but we still hold true to the vision and beliefs that started it all.
- Crafting and testing every recipe in Garth’s original kitchen
- Using high-quality ingredients that deliver industry-leading levels of proteins, vitamins, minerals, healthy fats and more, for health benefits you can see
- Using fresh, real whole foods, from farmers we know and trust
- Refusing to use preservatives, or fillers or anything artificial
- Giving back to people and communities who are committed to making life better for pets and pet parents
At Merrick, we work hard to help every pet live the healthiest, happiest life possible. We know it’s not just food in that bowl, it’s love. And that’s why it has to be the best.
