Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Backcountry Grain-Free Game Bird 4 lb:

Bought a bag today as my dog loves the raw pieces - not ONE piece of raw kibble in the entire bag! Was thinking about switching over from our current raw infused brand but I'll stick with the current after this experience the quality just isn't there for the premium price.

Good but quality has been slipping

By JonSnowsMom

Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Backcountry Grain-Free Game Bird 4 lb:

I have been feeding my dogs this recipe for years and they love it! Would be five stars but my only complaint is over the last five months, I have purchased two 22 pound bags of the Backcountry game bird recipe that contain absolutely zero freeze dried raw pieces. Zero, not even any freeze dried crumbs. One bag I purchased from Petco, the other bag from chewy. Is this is the beginning of a disappointing trend of decreasing quality and consistency? I really don't want to change their food but if this keeps up...

Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Backcountry Grain-Free Game Bird 4 lb:

Our Newfoundland Lucie was having skin issues and no matter what we did they only seemed to get worse. So on a lark we started feeding her the Pacific Catch recipe and gave her the same stuff in the wet food mixed in twice a week and after three weeks it's all cleared up! We were already fans for life, this just cemented into place!

Love Pacific Catch

Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Backcountry Grain-Free Game Bird 4 lb:

I work in a specialty pet food store so I'm exposed to dozens of different brands/recipes of dog food. I tried the Pacific Catch because my dog is double coated and sheds a lot and even blows coat. The fish formula is great for his skin and coat. He loves the freeze-dried bits as variety in the bowl. And for a fish formula it is very low odor. I recommend this food to my customers and am proud and pleased to serve it to my fur baby, Dakota

I have a 10 month old Samoyed and he has been on this food since he quit eating puppy food. He is so healthy and his adult coat is coming in so lush and full. He loves this food so much that I bought a slow feed bowl to keep him from snarfing it down too fast. Love this product!

My Pitbull loves it

By Brinsonfamilycarellc

Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Backcountry Grain-Free Game Bird 4 lb:

We switched to Merrick Backcountry Pacific Catch from Blue Buffalo Wilderness Red Meat recipe. And originally Blue Buffalo Wilderness Large breed Puppy. We started on the blue puppy right from weaning. Then our puppy trainer informed us of possible skin allergies from chicken based food. So we went to the blue red meat formula. All was well for a couple months. Then the constant itching and scratching started. About 2 months ago after an exhaustive online search for food recommendations from breeders, and pet owners I settled on a fish based food. We chose Merrick Backcountry Pacific Catch. It has the high protein and nutrition my Pitbull needs. Its readily available at local pet stores. My boy absolutely loves it. About a month after switching to The Merrick Pacific Catch the itching and scratching has slowly diminished. Now 2 months later, the itching is completely gone. His fur is beautiful, shiny, and healthy. I'm glad we switched. My only gripe... His farts will peel paint from the walls, but it's a small sacrifice for his health. Customer for life. Thank you for a quality product.
