    Healthy & Tasty

    By on

    I have been looking to provide a food with less preservatives and more real food. Merrick provides a very healthy and by the dogs reaction a very tasty choice. We mix the food with a natural frozen food choice to further reduce preservatives.

    Great Product

    By on

    Merrick Backcountry is one of the dog foods that is she for our pets. This particular flavor is one that our two Pulis love! Not sure of it's the smell or taste, but they seem to prefer this one. The freeze dried pieces are their favorites, of course.
