    PROS: ingredient list; CONS: smells like vomit and gives loose stools

    By ChewyCustomer on Apr 11, 2020

    This wet food has great ingredients although I would prefer it had selenium yeast as opposed to sodium selenite (synthetic form), and my dog seems to love it. Unfortunately, it gives him loose stools and it smells like vomit. We have tried both the beef and chicken recipes and the outcome is the same. We will not be purchasing it again.

    Great for a sensitive shar-pei

    By MJandAudrey on Oct 4, 2019 Top 25 Contributor

    Purchased this for my 6 1/2 year old shar-pei. She loves it so much and I love the ingredient list! This breed is known for having so many skin problems. But if you just feed them right, they do so well. My girl is allergic to chicken and this variety of merrick back country is all beef! Fantastic ingredients and my girl looks great. This food is a late style loaf but it is very soft. It smells like meat.

    Good stuff

    By Pickerupper on May 28, 2019

    When you have 2 GSD very picky eaters, you learn to change food every once in a while. All Merrick products give you that choice. I prefer grain free and they have good stuff.

    Dogs eat it right up!

    By A12138 on Jan 26, 2019

    Our dogs love this flavor! We use it as a topper for their kibble at dinner time and mix a little in. They never leave any behind, and they lick the bowl clean! It’s a soft pate consistency so it’s very easy to mix into dry food. Highly recommend!

    My Dog Hated It

    By CockerMom on Nov 16, 2018

    Normally I am a HUGE fan of Merrick mostly because they stay away from China and have the finest high quality ingredients. My Cocker, Rudy, gets Merrick Healthy Weight Grain Free dry and loves it. His aging requires me to add a bit of canned to it so I bought this thinking he'd do back flips. The texture right out of the can is like partially melted ice cream, VERY wet and mushy. The smell is not great. It smells like old meat you found buried in the back of your fridge. He refused to touch it. In fact, I even added ground sirloin to it and he still wouldn't touch it. I now am stuck with 11 cans which I am donating and on a quest to find something he'll like.
