Review and a rating for Merricks Grammy's Pot Pie wet food. Find out the ingredients used in this formula and if these ingredients are of good quality for your cat.I read somewhere about looking for the latest expiration date on canned cat food. Is stuff thats good until 5/17 worse than stuff thats labeled 5/18? Is the 18 actually fresher? AND, my cat doesn’t seem to prefer Weruva Fowl Ball. He DOES like the Merrick pate duck, chicken, turkey, and as well he likes Instinct duck, rabbit, turkey. We have been stacking them in a rotation so when we grab a can for breakfast, it isn’t the same as last night, or tonight. We also have been giving him a 3oz can in the am, and a 5.5 oz can in the evening. I don’t want him to lose weight too rapidly, but he does need to red a few lbs (from 14 to 11.5-12 would be at least better, so thats why I had previously mentioned calories. Is there a minimum about of cals or will he eat until he’s done and get all that he needs in terms of nutrition? We like to leave his dish down from about 5-8 pm in the eve, as in the am he cleans up in 3 oz serving after about 2 hours. (he comes and goes in to eat every 10-20 minutes or so.) Thanks, FredLooking through Merrick’s dry cat foods, peas are prominent in their Purrfect Bistro and Limited Ingredient Diet recipes. While peas are a good source of vitamins and minerals and can contribute some fiber to the diet, as a plant source of protein, they are not very desirable for your cat. Peas and other legumes (like soy) can also mimic estrogen and interfere with your cat’s endocrine system. For this reason, we decided to review Merrick’s Before Grain Chicken Dry Cat Food instead since it does not use peas or other legumes or lentils that might cause these problems.“Purrfect Bistro is a continuation of the ‘Merrick real food revolution’ we began last fall,” says Pete Brace, vice president for communications and pet parent relations at Merrick Pet Care in Amarillo, Tex., referring to a with the company’s dog food products. Amarillo, Texas (August 21, 2013) — Merrick Pet Care’s new Purrfect Bistro received a rare “five-out-of-five-paw” review in the first-ever cat food review appearing today in The New York Times Dining section.THIS IS NOT NEW PACKAGING. THIS IS AN ENTIRELY NEW FORMULA

Pet360 shows that this is new packaging on the Cowboy Cookout, however, it is not new packaging. This is an entirely new formula and essentially a different product altogether. As with an earlier reviewer, I have been a long time purchaser of Cowboy Cookout and have written previous reviews about how much my cats like it and how happy I am with the product. Unfortunately this new formula is completely different. First of all, it is little chunks of beef swimming in broth. My cats will drink the broth but will not touch the meat. Furthermore, they initially walk away from this hoping they will get something else. They clearly do not like this food.

Merrick indicates that they have reduced the amount of meat in this product because of the high product cost. You can see that on their Facebook page. I would've understood if they would have raised the price per can – but I cannot understand why a company like Merrick completely changes the formula. This new "packaging" contains more water, less beef, more fat, and is overall a less palatable product.

The previous version of Cowboy Cookout used sweet potato as the starch that created the proper consistency with the broth. This new version simply uses potato starch. Potato starch is a much cheaper product.

This new version also has fewer calories per can – which is simply indicative of more fluid and less beef. Given the fattier content of the beef, having less calories per can indicates a significantly reduced amount of beef in each can.

Although it's probably still a pretty good product, it makes no difference to me because my cats will not eat it. I've been searching for a replacement for Cowboy Cookout and have found that Wellness has a new line of foods called "Signature Selects" that my cats really seem to like. At this time, I am sad to say that I will no longer be buying Merrick cat food. First they changed the dry food to something that my cats won't eat and now they kill a long-term favorite called Cowboy Cookout. I understand that they may be going through some financial issues, but to change the quality of the formula and pretend it's only new packaging is despicable.
