About Merrick Pet Care

Back in 1995, our founder, Patrick, was on a hike with his chocolate lab, Zuke, when he shared his energy bar with him to refuel so they could finish their trek. At that moment, he realized our dogs are just like us—they need healthy treats to keep them going, too. So he created Zuke’s treats, nutrient-rich and made with the earth’s best ingredients.

And now, years later, the adventure continues with Zuke’s® Ascent Natural Dog Food, something we’ve wanted to create since the first treat was made. Join us on the journey as we fuel our life off leash.
