Merrick Pet Care has launched Whole Earth Farms to provide dog owners with a value-priced holistic brand, according to the company. The product combines multiple protein sources, fruits, vegetables, vitamins and minerals to create three age-specific, daily meals.
Each formula is expected to retail for US$38.99 per 35-lb. bag.
The company also manufactures the Five Star dry and wet line of dog and cat food as well as the Before Grain dry and wet dog and cat line.
New shelter data casts doubt on whether the pet population and pet ownership are truly growing.
While the pandemic caused unprecedented suffering worldwide in 2020, the disruptions to dogs, cats and other pets adoption numbers may normalize in 2021.
