They're made with high-quality protein, whole grains, and farm-fresh fruits and vegetables to provide a natural food formula rich in nutrients that support the overall health and well-being of your dog.

  • Doesn't get any better

    By on

    The Merrick line is exceptional, my little girl is the pickiest eater. When I opened the can and found a whole cooked chicken piece bone and all I was surprised. My Australian shepherd loved it and will not eat anything else but Merrick. Thank you.

  • Moist dog food

    By on

    I add a small amount of canned food to my small dogs dry food. They really enjoy it. I have been using Merrick since they were born and they are now four years old. Price is much cheaper at Chewy so I will continue to purchase from here rather than the store.

  • Super dog food!

    By on

    Our older dog loves this smothered comfort dog food. It smells great, good enough to eat and has vegetables and gravy that are easy for the old girl to eat. I can break apart the bone with a plastic fork and she loves it.

  • My dog loves this food--even my cat loves this food

    By on

    Chunks in gravy is pretty standard fare, but each can also includes a whole bone-in piece of chicken. The food has been cooked so thoroughly that the bone is crumbly and can't splinter and hurt my dog...and she really loves this stuff. In fact, even my cat loves this stuff and sometimes claims a portion for himself before the dog can eat. The food smells just fine (no gross wet food smell), though I have no idea how it would smell after sitting out for awhile--she always gobbles it down.

  • Dogs love it!

    By on

    I have an old dog with health problems and a diminished appetite. This food, however, really gets his attention with the whole chicken thigh. He particularly likes the edible bone. Our young dog loves it, too.

  • Merrick Smothered Comfort

    By on

    I like Merrick food for my dogs, but Smothered Comfort contains so much "gravy" (aka water) that it is expensive for the amount of actual food.

  • Heads up would have been nice

    By on

    The dogs love it, but the whole chicken thighs have bone in them. The can states they have been softened and therefore are ok for the dogs to consume. Still freaks me out so I remove them, which is easily done. However a heads up would have been nice in the product description.
