    Several Bent Cans

    By on

    Several bent cans. Shipping packaging was not damage. I wonder if problem in Chewy's or manufacturer's warehouse. Another canned product on this order also had several bent cans. I don't know this is a problem, other than bent tops. It was hard to fit the covers on cans is unused product.

    Not worth the extra cost.

    By on

    Unfortunately, the product contains an undo amount of liquid and lesser amounts of chicken than comparable brands with similar formulas. I cannot help but wonder if the make up of this product has changed since Merrick Pet Care was acquired by the Nestlé Purina PetCare Company.

    Duke's Favorite!

    By on

    My German Shepherd really likes this flavor, I think he likes the crunch of the bones :) Only negative comment would be some cans are far more gravy than any meat or veggie.

    Real chicken

    By on

    I feel I am giving my dogs good high protein food. Be careful if you but it. There was actually a whole chicken thigh in 2 cans so far and I had to remove the bones. Otherwise my dogs love it.

    Disappointed

    By on

    received my order today & could tell right away something was wrong. Didn't weight enough. The case of chicken was wrong, all 12 cans only weight 10.? 0z each... not any where near 12.7oz. every can is light. upon opening the first can, there is NO gravy, just meat. Expiration date not till Aug. 2020 really like this dog food, but would really like to get my moneys worth. pleae make this right.

    Real chicken

    By on

    My 2 terriers love this food. The only problem I have with it is inconsistency. Some cans have more cubed chicken than others. Some have one chicken leg, a few have had 2 legs. They include the bone, which I throw out. Merrick told me it is soft enough for dogs to eat, though. Some cans have a lot of "soup" and less food. I still recommend it because the dogs do like it and it's great to put over their dry food.

    Love this food!

    By on

    The first time I fed this to my dogs I didn't read the can first. There is a whole chicken bone in there but it is cooked in a way that is ok for dogs to eat. This is now one of their favorites. I have 1 pup that is grain free and picky. To watch her eat her whole bowl at once is great.
