Before traditional grain based diets were invented, mealtime for generations of cats was provided by nature. Merrick's new Before Grain product line provides a diet rich in high quality meat and bio-available nutrients the way nature intended. We believe a diet based primarily on fresh meat, super blue fruit, nutrient dense vegetables and high quality oils contribute to overall health and longevity.|
Fresh Chicken is the #1 ingredient - there are NO grains, fillers, by-products, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives!
They've formulated Before Grain dry varieties with your "everyday extraordinary" cat in mind, and the result is the most palatable, grain-free cat food on the market. This is the way food was supposed to be, before grain got involved.
