Merrick Pet Care Inc. is introducing a new line of 11 dog food recipes designed to provide balanced nutrition, under its Classic and Grain Free dog food brands.
The dog food recipes, which will coincide with new petfood packaging, will be available at Petco, independent pet specialty stores and select online retailers. The company says the food is cooked in Merrick's own kitchens with ingredients sourced from local growers.
With the launch of the new dog food recipes, consumers can sign up for the Merrick Food Revolution on Facebook to receive updates on the recipes, and they can also post pictures of their dogs to help "bark" the news about the food to fellow dogs and human friends.
