Merrick Classic Grain-Free Smothered Comfort Recipe Canned Dog Food is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 68.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just like you cooked it yourself! I have used this food for years. The food is made like you cooked it at home. It has whole braised chicken thighs and lots of gravy with veggies. Even the cat wants to eat it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My picky eater LOVES this! My dog would rather go hungry than eat plain kibble. But with the addition of a spoonful of Smothered Comfort, she chows down. Miracle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dog can food Our dog loves her can food mixed in her dry food. Great food for our dog
Date published: 2016-12-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome food! Yes, this food has a chunk of whole chicken with the bone in...it has been cooked in a way that makes the bone soft and safe for our pups to eat. Those who are picking out the bones are really doing their dogs a disservice, they are missing out on some incredible nutrients in the bone and the marrow! See for yourself how you can squish the bone with your fingers...not a hazard, and VERY HEALTHY!!! Unique product, my pups love every flavor!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DO NOT be scared of the bones! THESE are very safe! GREAT PRODUCT! I just had to post a review because of people who don't pay attention to EXACTLY what their pets are eating (I also noticed others with my same rant- THANK YOU!). The bones that are included in some Merrick canned foods (off hand, I know of this and Wingaling) are pressurized and super-heated, and unlike chicken bones from your plate, these DO NOT splinter, nor do they cause a choking hazard of any kind! You can test this for your own satisfaction by picking one up and seeing that with just the use of your forefinger and thumb-- the bones actually DISSOLVE into wet mush! No splinters, no large chunks, just bone and marrow mush! As soft as the cooked meat itself, if not softer! What more could a pup want than a chicken bone that mom and dad will actually allow him to eat because of its safety?! If having the physical proof between your fingers isn't enough for you, then simply READ THE SIDE OF THE CAN THOROUGHLY, as you should ALWAYS do anyway for ANYTHING you feed to ALL the precious members of your family. Aside from this rant, I must tell anyone to try this product (as well as any other of Merrick's food items)! It is very hard to find a truly healthy, wholesome food (dry or wet) for dogs that is also actually very tasty to them! Merrick's line of foods comes as close to the tastes of the "people food" they love without the extra fat, and having ingredients and preparation methods that are very healthy, safe, and complete nutritionally for the dogs we love. This is even more so true for those of us with very picky eaters (like mine!). If your dog loves Wingaling by Merrick, he/she will love Smothered Comfort as well (and vice versa)! Please, before you post a bad review of a product, be sure you are educated on the subject (or just read all you can about the product to make sure you're not mistaken). Also, please do not give bad ratings to a great product just because your picky poochie doesn't prefer it over others. That affects others' opinions negatively whose dog may have otherwise loved the product. I apologize, but it is a pet-peeve (pun intended) of mine for people to give anything but a completely fair review on any subject. Especially since it may cause others to miss out on something wonderful! Thanks! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yum We have been feeding this to our dogs, exclusively, for the last year and they love it. It almost looks like we could have packaged it off our own plates. Huge chucks of turley, carrots, potatoes in gravy. The chicken and pot roast are huge favorites as well. On the advice of our vet, we took them off all dry food;only feed this to them now, and they have collectively lost 14 lbs. It was only available at one store near us, so we now order it through Chewy, once a month and its delivered right to our door. It couldn't be easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
