All of Merrick's Hero’s Banquet recipes celebrate and call attention to the work of their partner K9s For Warriors, whose mission is pairing specially trained rescue dogs with veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disability.
Hero’s Banquet Recipe is an ancestral canine diet packed with protein dogs crave. This natural, grain free formula provides your dog with the nutritional benefits of a raw diet they would have discovered in the wild in a safe and convenient recipe that's easy to serve.
- Real deboned beef is always the first ingredient. This high quality protein helps build and maintain healthy muscle tissue and energy levels.
- Freeze-dried raw pieces are mixed into the kibble in a pure state to provide nutritional benefits that are easily digestible and taste great. The raw inclusion goes through rigorous testing and a proven process called High-Pressure Processing (HPP) to ensure food safety.
- High in Omega fatty acids for healthy skin and coat, and contain leading levels of glucosamine and chondroitin for healthy hips and joints.
- All Merrick recipes are crafted in their Hereford, TX kitchen and cooked in the USA, in facilities that uphold strict FDA guidelines.
