    Default Email Response from Merrick

    Upon learning that Purina was taking over Merrick, I was really bothered! I told my husband that we were making a switch that we weren't buying one more bag. I just don't understand. A company with such a high quality food thinking it's a step FORWARD to partner with Purina. Anyways, I emailed the company. Here is the conversation:

    MY EMAIL: "I have had my English Bulldog on your Grain Free food for several years now. He loves the food and is healthier than ever. I thought I was going to be a customer for life but unfortunately, this is no longer possible. I am very disappointed to hear about your merge with Purina. I do not feel comfortable having this company overseeing the decisions you make for your products. I will regrettably be purchasing another food. With Purina working with you, I can no longer trust the Merrick name."

    THEIR RESPONSE: "Thank you for taking the time to contact us. We certainly love hearing that your English Bulldog is doing so well on Merrick. We want to assure you that Merrick will continue to operate independently using the same quality China free ingredients in our recipes. This will not change and certainly hope you will allow us to prove this to you over the coming weeks and months. Please let us know if we can answer any other questions & have a great week."


    P.S. I think it's funny that they knew one of the problems I had with Purina was their China ingredients and it wasn't even mentioned in my email to them. How can they operate independently with Purina having the final say in their decisions? Now, I am debating between Wellness Core Wild Game or Nature's Variety Instinct.
    The righteous care for the needs of their animals,
    but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.

    Think how many people still feed Purina?!?!?!? Even if a group of smart people stop feeding Merrick, they will have endless resources of one of the biggest company's in the world Nestlé Purina...As of 2012, it is the second-largest pet food company globally and the largest in the United States.

    Bet of luck in the new search.... although, I do not feed Merrick, I was so disappointed to see this announcement as I do (did) see them as one of the more highly rated

    Nice, at least they responded. I have put in 2 calls, and an email to Stella & Chewy's after their recall made Tyson sick. Still not response....

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Giving Purina to a dog is the equivalent of a person eating a Big Mac. Sure there's "some" beef in it, but it's mostly man made crap
    And both have the same nutritional value.. meaning, none.
