Merrick Classic Grain-Free Smothered Comfort Recipe Canned Dog Food
This product does come with bones, but it is supposed to!!! The bones are cooked, along with the chicken thigh in a pressurized mechanism making the bones very soft and edible for your pet. If you see a bone, apply a little pressure and you will see it just crumbles. This is also clearly explained on the side of the can (and those reviews that complain about the bones worry me as the pet owners aren't even reading the side of the can).
Otherwise, my dog loves all the Merrick brand canned foods, but this one is her absolute favorite! I've fed her Merrick brand canned foods for about a year now (I use them to wet her dry food a bit) and have had no problems. Great stool, great digestive health.

My picky eater's favorite
My pup is a very picky eater and she loves Merrick canned food...and Smothered Comfort is her favorite. She is 10 this year and is doing great on Merrick food. She's been eating Merrick now for 6 years.

Good canned food and wholesome.
My pugs love this over their dry BLUE dog food. I only use one third can over regular feeding. Makes dry food more tasty for them.

Chicken bones in can
I found 2 chicken bones in a single can of this stuff. They appeared to be leg bones. One of them was splintered, the other intact. These are a choking hazard. Be careful if you feed this to your dogs.
Also, this food seems very watery compared to other brands. Compare to Evo or Blue Buffalo canned food. They're much less watery.

Large Bones found in Can
I can attest to the cans containing real chicken, the problem is there are also real bones in there as well. Not sure if anyone else has had the same issue. The first can I opened up there was a fullsize leg bone that appeared cut in half. I stuck a spoon in to pour into a bowl and hit something solid halfway into the can. The second can opened also has contained another large bone fragment.
I'm a bit scared to try the third can, and a bit worried if there is any further small bone pieces mixed into the food.
I purchased a 12 pack because there was a special discount running on Merrick dog food. My dog seems to love the dry food and I figured I'd also get an order of the wet as well.
I'll have second thoughts ordering this same food again.

Lots of chicken
There's actually a whole chicken thigh in the can along with the rest of the good stuff. I only feed my 2 dogs 1/4 can of food mixed in with their kibble in the morning and there's plenty of chicken thigh in there for them to each get some both days.

My dogs love this can food. You get a big chuck of meat and plenty of juice.

Dogs like it
The dogs love the food. Be sure you remove the thigh bone. Yes this is real chicken fresh off the bone.
