    Omg! She loves this

    By on

    I can't believe that my fussy water loves this good so much. I bought it when her usual food was on backorder. I will be mixing the two from now on. You are the best, thanks for recommending.

    Always underfilled

    By on

    As much as I like the idea behind Merrick’s food line, I was disappointed when they shrunk the can sizes (but not the price) last year. More often then not, the cans are under-filled to some degree, but today’s can was ridiculous! Come on Merrick! At least fill your smaller cans!

    Dogs love it

    By on

    My dogs love this, but sometimes there is way to much gravy. the amount of gravy varies from can to can/ sometimes I have to toss some of it because they won't eat that much.

    Cans were bent and dented but dogs loved it

    By on

    I have been having a problem with dented cans from Chewy but the products are good. My fussy dogs decide every 6 months or so that they don't like what they are eating so I buy something new. After reviewing, I chose the Merrick Back Country. Bought two flavors. They don't care for the duck as well as the Venison/Beef but will eat that, too.

    Very good choice for my senior dogs!

    By on

    I am switching my senior guys to Merrick and they always get some wet with their kibble.....they love this one! My only complaint is that the chunks are big chunks so I don't think this goes as far as the rabbit stew flavor.

    Good Stuff!!

    By on

    My "kids" finish this product first, then they decide whether or not they want to finish whatever I put with it. They really love those big meat chunks. Smells great to me too!

    undercooked pieces

    By on

    Twice now I've found hard, dark red, undercooked pieces inside the large chunks. I'm afraid to use the rest of the cans in my order, because it could make my dog sick. The three other Merrick flavors I bought don't have issues, but it makes me wonder about quality control with the brand.
