Must be the best chicken out there

My cats have tried quite a few varieties and they like Backcountry best. I'll order it again!

No no no and no

My cat vomited violently after eating this particular type of food. I attempted to give it 3 times with same outcome. She loves the rabbit, though.

Made my cst sick

After reading all the good reviews, I decided to give it a try. But it didn’t work out for my fur baby. My cat got diarrhea and UTI after eating this. Once I stop giving her wet food,she goes back to normal in two days. So sad.

Picky Eater Approved

My picky eater gobbles the chicken flavor up! A little on the pricey side, but totally worth it if you struggle to find food your kitty will eat.

Good food my babies snubbed

So I am trying to find a new wet food for my kitties as they were not eating the current one. This one is the second try. Great packaging, not a lot of gravy and the Chunks of meat are good size. Sadly kitties won't touch ot so back to trying another brand.

Softer than rabbit - older kitty loves it.

My 15-year old loves this because it's much softer than the rabbit - so she LOVES the rabbit gravy and eats the chicken! Trying to find the purrfect combination for a very picky kitty has taken years, but this seems to be it.

Good quality

All my cats liked Merrick Backcountry morsels in gravy real chicken recipe cuts. Good quality and no by-products or additives. The gravy is very little in the pouch.

Bella loves this food

Our 18 year old cat loves this. It seems easier for her to digest than run of the mill cat food, and she's gaining weight and regaining her appetite.

Must be delicious

Our 15 year old feline has been sad since her buddy passed away and hadn't shown interest in meals, losing weight. After a vet check to be sure she was ok, I decided to try the Merrick Backcountry grain free morsels in gravy. At first she only licked the small amount of liquid in each packet but after I cut the morsels of meat in smaller portions she has eaten the entire 3 oz. packet. She seems to like the rabbit, turkey and chicken recipes in that order and looks forward to mealtime again.

Eight paws up

Two of my cats like this food but, I need to smash the big chunks up with a fork or they won’t eat them. My third cat is not a fan of this and will only nibble at it. It has great ingredients. It’s a great food but, I need something all three cats like.
