I've heard good things about them but I wouldn't feed it, just because of the whole rendering plant thing and I question the sources of the ingredients as well.

Geeez. I had never heard about that. Anyone have any links that back up the whole rendering plant subject? Or anything by Mordy? I need to do some more research, that's for sure!

Does anyone know of a good canned food that is comparable in texture to the Merrick? You know, the big chunks of chicken, with veggies and lots of juices or gravy? TIA.

Have you looked at Natural Balance Healthy Eatables? They are chunky and smell really good and the can even says that people can eat them too. They aren't very high in protein, but if you are just using canned as an "extra" then they work great. http://www.naturalbalanceinc.com/eatables/home.html

I feed the Merrick's canned every now and then to Rumor. I fed the Merrick's dry about two years ago, and Duke just had a trail of liquid poo streaming behind him. It was not a pretty sight, and he looked awful.

I think it's a "rendering plant" and that they pick up and process downer cattle not fit for human consumption- but I could be mistaken.
I heard this as well. I can't remember where I read it but it implied that any diseased, dead, euthanized animals are picked up by Merrick and brought to their rendering plant. If I can find the link again I will post it.
