    Although I do like Merrick for the last 10 years, I did not like this one that well. It smelled cheap and was mushy.

  • Quantity lacking

    By on

    My dogs love the flavor. But there is too much juice and not enough meat product. I raise Cairn terriers and there just isn't enough dog food in the can to warrant the costs.

  • Not a winner

    By on

    My dogs normally like Pete but the consistency was much looser than what they are used to. Unfortunately it did not go over well at our house which was very disappointing based on the ingredients. May work for others not as picky.

  • Labs like it!

    By on

    All my guys (4 Labs) like it..Time will tell. The only thing I am concerned about is will Purina, who just purchased Merrick, change the recipe or use cheaper ingredients...if that happens then all bets are off.

  • My doggy loves it!

    By on

    He is a very picky dog I've ever seen... and he is a Beagle...= =lll He does not eat if I do not put any canned food in his dry food. BUT! He does not eat every brand of canned food either...= =lll If he does not like it, he will not touch it. So, I'm very happy that he loves this brand and will continue to buy for him.

  • The Pack Loves This Food

    By on Top 1 Contributor

    Our 4 rescues are usually NOT fans of pate style canned food. Merrick's Backcountry 96% Real Beef Recipe is an exception. They LOVE it and finish every bite. Good stuff

  • Great food!

    By on

    I have a very picky eater, but she absolutely loves this food. Its consistency is somewhat softer than other Merrick canned foods, but she seems to love it. Great for a mixer because dry food mixes very easily into it. Chewy's price is equal to what my local pet food store sells it for, but its shipped right to my front door...so that makes it ordering from chewy much more convenient! I recommend this food and definitely recommend chewy!
