Loving this brand

When I first switched my cat over to the Merrick Backcountry pouches, she was hesitant at first because of the larger chunks. I started using a fork to crush the large chunks into something smaller and softer, and she has been addicted since. She licks the bowl clean and meows for food louder than she ever had before. Her favorite flavors are Duck, Chicken, and Whitefish.

it’s unanimous from 7, this duck is good

My cats have never liked duck flavor wet food. But for some reason they all love this brand. Rabbit is a whole other story but that’s a review for another day.

Morsel size

My 2 cats normally love Merrick morsels but they're not a fan of the duck. I don't know if it's because the morsels are fairly large in size. The drink/eat the liquid but leave the meat alone. This is the first time they've ever turned up their noses at any type of wet food.

As Good As It Gets!

I have 3 cats. For the last 6 years they’ve been raised on Hill’s cat foods. In addition to their prescription kibble they love chunks and gravy, and I bought a variety for them so they wouldn’t get addicted to just one food. It worked for their whole 6 years of life. When supply issues began to limit availability across the country I knew I had to do something. So I began my research and hit on Merrick Back Country grain free recipe cuts. They love every flavor! They get their chunks and gravy and they get wholesome nutritious food that they love. I like that it’s grain-free and I like the pouches, even if it might be a tiny bit more costly. It’s worth it. And to be able to feed them rabbit, duck, trout etc. is the cherry on top of the cat food cake for me. They still like the Hill’s tender dinners, and we work them into the rotation of flavors. But we’ll continue with Merrick Back Country for the rest of their lives!

Kittens LOVE Duck

I have been feeding my kittens this Merrick product but it was always the Rabbit recipe. Well the Rabbit was out of stock when the auto ship order came due to fill and I substituted Duck. Come to find out they LOVE duck too. I see no difference in their morning feeding they descend on their breakfast like they have massacre this beast and not a drop is left when they walk away from the dish.

Great alternative to rabbit

Duck is our cats second favorite. Her number one is still rabbit. So glad we found such great food for our furball. She loves the taste and it’s healthy for her.

Really good

I was worried that my 12 year old cat would refuse to eat this, but he proved me wrong. He has allergies that restrict his diet and it has been difficult to find food that he would eat. No longer, he highly recommends this Merrick duck recipe

Kitty with chicken allergies really likes it

So far so good. My cat usually likes to eat the gravy and leave the bits behind, but he actually eats the whole bowl.
