The perfect natural food I’ve been looking for!
5.0 of 5 stars
Our rescued German Shepherd, Diesel, was smaller compared to his brothers. I knew I wanted to feed him the best all natural raw food I could find. He loves this product! He went from 19 to 31 pounds in a month! This food makes his coat shine beautifully and has helped him gain muscle and strength! I highly recommend this food!

I bought this product for my Labrador and American Pit Bull. Both have food allergies, and both of course have to be picky eaters as well. When I put the Merrick Grain Free Real Duck and Sweet Potato recipe in their dishes they chowed down. Super glad I found a high quality food my dogs like.

WOW! Satisfied picky eater!

I have a 14 week old golden retriever. He has been so skinny! He had no interest in food. I would fill the bowl and by end of day it still was full... id end up feeding by hand and sometimes tried warm water on it. (Fed Science Diet large breed puppy) The kibble was too big i think too.
I just bought this new food today. I was So impressed! He ate it all fast, wagging his tail! His belly already looks so much better!

Large dog - small kibble ?

I'm very excited to start my 70 pound black lab on this food. He has allergies and has a runny nose for quite some time and has started developing fatty tumors. This morning I mixed in the limited ingredient lamb and sweet potato and he has been coughing all morning and trying to cough something up. I believe he ate the small kibble too fast. I understand there is no large breed version of the limited ingredient diet - does anyone have any suggestions?

Amazing

My dog was showing signs of food allergies and before taking her to the vet and getting a $500 bill, i went to my local pet supermarket talked with the staff and explained my issues and i was referred to Merricks limited ingredient lamb and sweet potato. After 1 week of doing half old food and half new food i saw a difference in her skin, coat, and ichy areas. This food is absolutely amazing and i am so thankful i found this.

My dog was not interested in his dry food so I read about this and decided to try it to see if he liked it. He absolutely Loves it! When researching this product I read a lot about the dog picking out the bits. So when I get a bag I separate the kibble from the bit and then grate the bits and mix equally so all the kibble is covered with it. That works very well, now he just eats all of it. Also I am extremely impressed with this company. The last bag I purchased did not have many bits so I called the company. My call was answered in 1 ring by the sweetest lady named Rebecca. She told me to return the bag to the store for a refund/exchange that they "Honor" their guarantee. I am so grateful that If I have an issue or a question, there is someone there to speak to. I think this is a great product and a great company.

Only food my dog can eat!

So about four years ago, my dog developed a horrible skin issue where she has patches of hair falling out and her skin was raw and cracked.

Our original vet said that she's just chewing and has hot spots, he recommended brewers yeast. That only made it worse. So I tried a different vet and she right away said it's an allergy and asked about the food. She explained that not only do I need grain free, but ones without yeast. I found out that most company's have yeast in their grain free formulas which is the main cause to skin allergies.

When we first switch, we used Science Diet salmon. The only had the chicken or salmon and she needed something high in omega 3 & 6 for her coat. Well about a year into feeding her that, they discontinued that formula. I called and they said they carry the same formula in another brand of theirs hence why they discontinued it. And then about three months later, that brand stopped carrying it.

I went to my nearest Petco where I normally get her food and an associate helped me look at a ton of grain free formula to make sure it didn't have yeast and Merricks limited ingredient was the only one. She has been eating it ever since without an issue. I love that the limited ingredient has few different kinds so I can change them up sometimes, though the lamb is her favorite (the duck is a close second).

It's worth the money, I know some people complain about the price of dog food, but if the 22 pound lasts 30 days, that's about $1.96 a day. I couldn't eat that cheap!

My fur baby is 14 going on 15 and still going strong with a beautiful coat and teeth!

I thought my dog was a picky eater!

My dog is suddenly excited to eat. We would joke and call him a cat! Now, he's so excited and he finishes everything in his bowl! He was eating Natural Balance Wild pursuit and man.... I can't believe the difference in my dog since on the Backcounty Raw Infused!. Thank you Backcountry!!

I bought these for the first time about a week ago at Petco. My dogs absolutely love them and I love the Merrick brand. The only problem is the place we bought them had them on clearance so I don't think they are going to carry them anymore.

Love the variety of the main protein

I had the dog with allergies. All of you know how hard it is to find no chicken, chicken meal, chicken liver, and in some cases high egg quantity. I lost Georgie Boy Nov of last year (cancer) and i still continue buying merrick due to no digestive problems, healthy coat and weight, and fewer trips to the vet. I too am irritated at price increase and weight decrease but i wouldnt risk my dogs health over money. Besides if you feed inferior food you spend more in the long run

Even finicky eaters love this meal.

My little Nina is really a finicky eater, she's picky & gets bored easily about her food. But seems like she loves this mix...& her fave pieces are really the freeze-dried raw beef. It would be great if I could find a package full of those freeze-dried beef, to add to her regular diet. And the very small kibbles are also great for small senior dogs like my Nina.

Maltese

I have 3 dogs with one being a Maltese with a sensitive stomach. After lots of research and trying many types of expensive foods, I ended up with this one. All of my dogs like it and have more energy. But the biggest and best surprise was with my maltese. After about 5 months, NO MORE TEAR STAINS! SERIOUSLY USED TO DRIVE ME NUTS! I would clean her eyes EVERYDAY and cut her hair just so I couldn't see the red. I know that people won't believe me, but what have you got to lose? And also, maybe too much info, but her private parts are also very clean. Our vet said, that no food would cure the stains. We'll look at my pics, and yes that is the same dog. My sweet Cassie Bear.

Great Food!

Amazing perfect food

My Siberian Huskies love this food. Took me a while to find the right food. I always like to stick with Salmon because its bests for huskies. Not even a month I was seeing HUGE results on my adult dogs. Their coats were very shiny and super super soft. Right now my huskies are naked (blew their coat or shed) and they are very soft like a puppies coat. Huskies never feel soft after blowing their coat. I was very impressed and happy that I was seeing results on this dog food. They love it so much that I have to schedule feeding time for them also. Even the puppies love this food too.

Puppies loves this food

I searched for a long time to find the best food. I finally found Merrick and wanted to give it a try. Not even a month into the Merrick food and I could see HUGE results with my puppies. Their coats were very shiny and super soft. I couldn't believe how fast the results were. I normally free feed my puppies but because they love this food so much I have to put them on a schedule feeding. Even the adults like the puppy food a lot. I have to make sure they don't eat it lol

My cat loves it, but the carageenan ingredient
3.0 of 5 stars
I was so pleased...I thought finally found a good food that my 6 yo Aria (feline) loves and will eat consistently- at least for the last full week straight. She's never done that before. She has an inflammatory intestinal disease and gets very thin at times because she doesn't care for the foods I've tried to feed her. Unfortunately, I now understand that this food that she loves so much (Merrick Perfect Bistro Tuna Pate) is likely contributing to her illness, because of the cargeenan in it. Would you please find a way to take this out of the formula for our pet's health and longevity? Also, I would like to know what constitutes "natual flavors" in this formula? Does it contain such things as MSG?

Where's the freeze dried pieces????

Seriously this is a continuing issue, my dog and I both would like to see more in the bag.Her because she loves the stuff,and me because this stuff is not cheap. The larger bags have a zip top to maintain freshness. However a small 4 lb. bag doesn't? ? Please address these issues Merrick.

Making my dogs sick
1.0 of 5 stars
We were feeding this for a while along with a dry kibble of yours. Suddenly, a batch of the canned food starting making 2 of 3 of my dogs sick. We know it was this because we only feed the canned food to 1, and let another lick the spoon. These 2 began having violent diarrhea. We stopped feeding for 24 hours at vet recommendation, when we started feeding again, we fed dry kibble only. After they were back to normal for 3 days, we spooned a couple more scoops of wet food in for our oldest, let the middle furchild lick the spoon, and BAM sick again! Our third dog eats the same kibble, but doesn't get any of the wet food. She's been perfectly fine! I'm so disappointed. We had finally found a food that we loved, and now we have to switch again!
