I purchased Merrick Backcountry Freeze-Dried Raw Real Chicken Recipe Grain Free, hoping to get our senior dog to eat more; he's 15 and losing muscle. Our vet told us to add protein to his food, which would help him gain weight. He loves them, he's not eating as much as we would like; but it's a lot more than he had been. They are a little spendy, but we have been feeding him Merrick Dry food for a few years and I trust Merrick.

My two picky huskies were going almost two full days without even looking at their food bowl. They chose to eat grass and puke instead of eat food (talked to a vet, it happens). I didn't think they would like it, but I was wrong.
I didn't even need much. I take two tablespoons and mix it with a little water to get a "gravy" and mix it in their food. The eat it and want more!!!
He likes it!

My little dog hates all hard dry food and I’am wasting money on can food. Took a chance and bought this and He is eating it! I’ve been wanting to try freeze dried raw for a long time. It is expensive but I guess if he actually likes it and it’s not getting thrown out, that is a good thing.

My mom mixed this in with my food and I loved them. I wanted more but mom said I needed to eat them sparingly because they were a bit pricey.
Thank you, Roxy

Merrick Freeze-Dried Raw Mixers (chicken)

Our puppy loves the Merrick Freeze-Dried Raw mixers (chicken). Some times, she's a picky eater...crushing some of these little kibbles with water and mixing in with her dry food, entices her to eat. They are great for special treats too. Will definitely buy again.
