    My dog is somewhat picky with her food, especially with salmon/fish based kibbles. We have tried other grain free salmon based foods in the past, but she typically turns her nose up unless I had shredded cheese or something else. Due to skin issues, however, she does require salmon based as the fatty acids help with dry skin and hot spots. Anything not salmon based and she gets crazy dandruff and hot spots. That said, we tried the big game recipe of this, which she liked and does contain fish, just not enough. We switched to this and not only does she seem to enjoy it more than the big game recipe, but her coat is super soft and shiny and she has no hot spots.

To address some of the other complaints - the freeze dried bits are pretty crumbly, but i just crumble them on top and add some water to the bowl and she loves it. As for the smell - I have not noticed a smell too offensive, others must have gotten a funky bag or something. It does have a tiny bit more of a fishy smell, but you probably wouldn't even notice it unless you were trying. Good food, love Merrick! … more

  • Raw Infused

    In the past I spared no expense purchasing high end dog food but my dogs didn't seem to care! Merrick dog food was recommended to me 4 months ago and because both dogs have sensitive skin (pink) I tried the Backcountry Raw Infused Pacific Catch, and believe me, my dogs pay attention when I fill their bowl with this! It even smells fresh when I open the bag. Of course, I want to feed my 45 lb Poodle and my 7 lb Maltese the purest and most nutritious dog food available for their health, and their behavior tells me I have found that in Merrick Backcountry.

  • They LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

    I had to recently switch to grain-free food with salmon because of Cushings disease in one of my dogs and found that they love this! Even when I left them with my pet sitter, there was no halt or change in their eating habits. They're happy, I'm happy!!

    My dog LOVES this food; he went from ignoring me while i put his food down to almost tackling me for it! He has a sensitive stomach, and he really does great on this. The price is steep, but they are worth it afterall.

  • Average food

    By on

    Kibble a little small the Raw Infused bites are of no value, not one of my four dogs three small (approx. 20 pounds and one 110 pounds) care about the raw unfused. I purchased because of the fish ingredients and to get away from chicken as much as possible.

    I was disappointed that our regular Lamb version of the Merrick food was out of stock. I find the odor of the salmon offensive

  • Too rich for my shepherd

    By on

    He does well on the K-9 Hero flavor and the game bird. This one gave him diarrhea. Maybe it has more oil in it, but he definitely cannot handle this one.
