Canned? (broth to me means canned...)

They look ok. Just beware of wheat allergies (quite common). And tomato pomace is a stool hardener but it's not as bad (as far as I know it doesn't release toxins and all that) as beet pulp.

No Merrick in your area? Then again, Merrick cans are too expensive to feed on a regular basis.

The stuff I picked up is the gravy based pouch.

I haven't found Merrick or Solid Gold yet. I've been doing searches and stopping into stores as I see them, but haven't really found much yet. I thought the place I went to yesterday had Solid Gold because that's what the Solid Gold website said, but unfortunately they don't carry it and Petsmart doesn't carry it either. I haven't found a Petco that is within a reasonable drive either. :(
