Questions & Answers

11 Customer Questions

Which countries are the ingredients sourced from?
Answer by ChewyDec 07, 2019
While all Merrick recipes are made in the USA in their Kitchens in Hereford, Texas, they do outsource a few ingredients from other countries. The Lamb and Venison in their recipes is sources from New Zealand, the Duck and Rabbit are sourced in France, and the Vitamins and Minerals Premix are sourced in Canada and Germany. All other ingredients are sourced in the United States of America.

Are the meats in these pouches cooked or is it raw meat?
Answer by ChewyFeb 24, 2021
This food is not raw, it has been cooked.

What is the carb count?
Answer by ChewyOct 07, 2020
The Turkey contains 79 calories per pouch. The Duck contains 85 calories per pouch. The Chicken contains 79 calories per pouch.

Is this “for all life stages” like some other Backcountry choices? It’s hard to tell, a few products on here say adult but the cans I have of the same one at home says for all.
Answer by ChewySep 28, 2020
The recipes in this variety pack are formulated for the maintenance of Adult cats.

Quality food

I got this food compliment for testing purposes. My cat tends to just eat his dry food and is every picky about everything else. He is 16 and this is the first time in a long time I’ve seen him eat all the wet food and look for more after. I finally found something he enjoys. I gave him a little bit at a time to not upset his stomach and he had no issues with the new food. I have a happy cat.

Great ingredients but lacks juice

My cats like this wet food quite a lot, the chunks are large and the serving size is great for easily dishing out their meals. Ingredients are as good as expected for the brand, minimal added stuffs. However, for a wet food I was expecting it to have more juice or gravy than it does. It's kind of dry for a wet pouch. My cats usually get wet food with gravy in it so I know they stay as hydrated as possible and this not having it is a bit of a letdown.

She smelled it through the packaging!

As soon as the product was delivered, my cat, Cinnamon knew there was something for her! Once I opened the package she wouldn’t leave it’s side. As soon as I poured out the packet, she devoured it. The food looked like it was good quality, and based on her reception, I’d have to say it was good! Looking forward to purchasing other flavors for her!

Milo loves it!

So let’s just start by saying I use this mixed with my cats other food. He loves it! Excites him to eat everyday. The only downside is my cat is 13 pounds (just a large cat not overweight) so the requirement would be so many packages if I made this his only food source. Works well as a topper though!

Lucy loves it!

Our cat Lucy loves this food! She was purring the entire time she ate it and I found the smell less strong and offensive as compared to some other brands. The packaging was convenient and easy to open and easy to store. This product was sent to us for free for testing purposes.

Good catfood

At first, my cat would not touch it, he smelled it then would just sit and stare at me. He is very picky so I wasn't surprised. So we sat there for a couple of minutes then he started to lick the gravy, then he eventually did eat all of it.

Cats are too picky

My cats are too picky. They LOVE the gravy out of these pouches, but they really don't like the morsels. I don't think this is any particular issue with Merrick's product, because the cats don't like the morsels out of the other brand I purchased as well. I took a star off because of my personal experience, but it seems like a good food (despite my cats being finicky about textures.) It seems like such a waste to throw out the morsels after they've been licked dry. I'd still recommend this product to someone whose cat like this kind of food texture.

Merrick - Mistake

I purchased this to try since Chewy was out of my cats food. Mistake...they won't touch it. Even the outdoor cats that come eat walked away. A big possum did however enjoy eating what the cats wouldn't.

sensitive tummies beware

Picked this up in an attempt to switch my cat off of fancy feast, she loves poultry and gravy so I thought this would be perfect. She seemed to love it but unfortunately she threw up nearly every single time she ate this. We tried for about a week but it did not get better. Back to fancy feast we go! She stopped throwing up as soon as we went back.
