    Great for my doggy!

    By on Top 25 Contributor

    Bought this for my shar-pei, she has food intolerances and allergies. The ingredients in this food work really well for her! She really enjoys this food and eats it right up. I will however state that the chunks are great for medium to large sized dogs but are definitely unit bite size for small dogs.

    Merrick Chunky Beef Dinner

    By on

    Good for large or small dogs with large chunks of soft ground meat. I chop it up to feed my small dogs. My dogs just don't care for this beef flavor. I use the chicken flavor of same product and they love that!

    My dog LOVES this!

    By on

    My best friend bought a case with her when she dropped her dog with us for vacation. Of course I gave some to my pup and she loved it so much I ordered a case. I mix it in with Earthborn Prarie dry food and every molecule is gone

    Excited to eat again!

    By on

    My nearly 14 yr. old Labradoodle can be a very picky eater. I've been feeding him different quality dry foods for years but in the last few years I've had to add wet food to get him to eat. Merrick Backcountry Grain-Free Chunky Beef in Gravy has been great, he loves it! Easy for him to eat and plenty of gravy to mix with his dry food so they all get that great coated beefy taste. I only add 2 beef chunks and some gravy to his meal and he's excited to eat.

    Backcountry is best!

    By on

    My three like it okay, but I think I ordered the wrong beef. It’s my mistake I’ve got to order the right one. They like the Backcountry better than the other canned foods.

    Big Chunks of food

    By on

    The can has very large of chunks of food that I ended up cutting up to top dry dog food. My dog did not seem to like it, nor my cat. I will wait a bit and try again, or give to a local animal shelter.

    My dogs like gravy and bigger chunks this has that. Chunks are soft enough to cut easily for more mixing
