After more than 20 years of innovation, Merrick started the "Real Food Revolution" in 2012 by reformulating our Classic and Grain Free lines of dog food with new recipes that were unsurpassed in quality, nutrition and taste. And in 2013 the revolution continued with our Purrfect Bistro menu of high-protein, grain-free wet and dry foods in a wide variety of tastes and textures for cats. In 2015, we introduced Merrick Backcountry, the ultimate canine ancestral diet, and Limited Ingredient Diets, simple recipes for dogs and cats with ingredient intolerances or food sensitivities. Today, we continue to craft new recipes to help the Best Pets Ever stay happy and healthy.
