    I also called Merrick and asked about the carb content in both the chicken and the salmon Before Grain dry cat food. Here's what the lady said:

    Before Grain Chicken dry: 27%
    Before Grain Salmon dry: 25%

    As I had mentioned in another thread, Wellness and Merrick don't use ethoxyquin as a preservative. They only use natural preservatives.
    Owned by Sky, Pearl, Ziggy Stardust, Alani, Blaze, Colby, Finnegan, and Summer.

    Wow quite a bit of research there, thanks Tracy.

    About ethoxyquin: it is fine for Merrick to say THEY don't use it. The issue is, do they buy fish from a supplier who does. And they are not required to disclose this.
