Before traditional grain based diets were invented, mealtime for generations of dogs was provided by nature. Merrick Before Grains Pork Dry Dog Food 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 Pork is the #1 ingredient - there are NO grains, fillers, by-products, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives and NO Poultry!!
