    Great for a sensitive shar-pei

    By on Top 50 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

    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 on

    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 on

    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.

    He Loves It!

    By on

    I have a picky eater for a dog and was skeptical because of the consistency of the food (I.e. I’m used to giving him canned food where you can see the chunks of chicken, carrots, etc.). But I think this is his new favorite flavor. He gobbles it down fast, which doesn’t happen with any otter flavor or brand.

    My Dog LOVES this

    By on

    This is one of the few 5-star rated canned foods from dogfood advisor. This is why I chose it. I keep buying it because my dog loves it. He has food allergies so I am very careful with what I purchase. This has helped his allergy symptoms decrease.

    Dogs love it.

    Our one dog is a picky eater. We have tried many canned foods and this is the first one she likes. We have two dogs and they each get 1/4 can a day mixed with their kibbles.
