Merrick Grain Free Backcountry Great Plains Red Meat Recipe, 4 lb. is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 77.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Purina in a mask For years I fed my pups Merrick Grain free, th n a few months after the Purina’s buyout, my lab with severe allergies started having reactions after eating. Soon it grew to a constant reaction. Then she started bleeding. After thousands of dollars in vet bills I realized you had been bought out by a company that has a super sketchy recall history and doesn’t seem to care about pets over the dollar. Thankfully after changing food to another brand (that actually costs less). She is reaction free and doing fantastic.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Backcountry Great Plains Decided to switch my boxer to this after feeding her Grain Free Chicken and Sweet Potato and she did great but was getting over the chicken. Now tried switching to Backcountry Great Plains and after transitioning properly she has had horrible diarrhea during whole transition period and now 3 days into just the new bag. No very happy owner or dog, think gunna give brand one more chance and try a Backcountry Large Breed. She does love the taste and flavor it j its upsets stomach horribly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 3 bags with NO raw infused pieces I have been buying this for 2 yrs now and the last 3 months every bag I buy has NO RAW infused chunks in it at all. That is why I buy it my dogs love the pieces. I hope you will correct this problem I have recommended this in the past but lately I would not.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No Freeze Dried Our old english loves this since she was a pup. Sadly to say our last purchase had no freezed dried pieces and took longer than expected for her to eat the while bag. But, We will continue to purchase, healthy skin, coat and happy girl!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best food ever We have two Frenchie’s and both love this food. Others gave them bad breath, stomach upsets, etc. I also get weekly updates of recalled dog food and treats, Merrick has a impeccable record and feel safe my boys aren’t getting some weird meat from China.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! Dry kibble that our dog loves... It has been hard to find a kibble that our dog would consume without having to add a little “seasoning” to the food before he eats. Our dog is one extremely picky eater and with most of the major grain free kibble brands, we would have to add coconut oil, a few spoonfuls of wet food, or some sort of additive in order for him to eat. But we have noticed that anytime a beef flavored Merrick kibble was served, he’d devour it all without an issue. We are extremely happy and his coat is extremely shiny. We commonly receive great responses from everyone when walking him and just compliment on how shiny his coat is daily. The Merrick food is greatly approved by our pup so we give it 2 thumbs up!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Purina buys Merrick Because Purina is now owned by Purina, I took all my dog food back to store. Too bad you have compromised your principles of providing great dog food --\\now greedy and non-caring Purina will destroy a previously good product,

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to evenly portion the Raw Infused bits. My dog likes this but the raw infused bits it don't pour our evenly so I end up with none left with half of the kibble remaining. Also, the Game Bird ends up with about 2 cups of crumbs at bottom of bag. Unfortunate, because this is the one I'd prefer to feed my dog but too much is wasted. Other than these issues, I believe it's a good product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves the raw infused bits ! I tried this because I like what Merrick puts in the food (or doesn't put in their food). I have a 2-year old female greyhound, and when I put this into her bowl, she uses her long nose to move the food around to find the raw infused bits and then she eats the rest. It is hilarious to watch ! I will buy all the flavors of this raw-infused recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING I decided to buy this food after 3 of my pets passed away from a lot of things I noticed other people were also complaining about. With some research I found we all had one thing in common, we were feeding out animals from the Purina line which they make A LOT of dog foods under the guise of different names. After having to put 3 pets down I made sure to switch my last dog. Not that its funny but he would let himself get to the point of throwing up because he wouldn't eat beneful...but I cant get this food out of the scoop fast enough for him. Ive noticed SUCH a huge change from the look of his fur to his skin (I shave him).. even his pop as gross as that is but its not a multi coloured mess anymore. In the future with all my pets I will only be buying Merrick and the raw infused ones have treats inside to get your dogs appetite going. Amazing products, my dog will stand on 2 feet while I prepare the canned foods too its hilarious

Rated 5 out of 5 by from our dogs love this food One of our dogs is allergic to almost everything, so we're glad we found this dog food. He enjoys eating it and is doing great. The "treats" mixed in the food makes it extra special.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Raw Infused Love that the kibble is mixed with raw infused protein! Max loves that part the most. He eats those pieces first and then devours the rest of the food. He is a high energy dog and needs a lot of protein!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog LOVES it! Ive been using Merrick to feed my dog since he was a puppy. His breed has sensitive skin so he requires a healthy dose of Omegas. Merrick has plenty of them. But when the infused fod came out, with freeze dried chunks, my dog would feast away more so. Im looking for a way to buy directly from Merrick as the pet store we buy from is EXTREMELY expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best dog food on the market! My jack russel/lab mix, Cali, has been on this for over 2 years. She is going on 6 years old and absolutely loves her food. She can't get enough of the raw pieces. I've been very pleased with her overall health since being on Merrick. She use to suffer chronic urinary track infections for several years. I'm thrilled that she hasn't had one since starting on Merrick. I also love the variety that Merrick offers. We feel comfortable spoiling Cali with all of Merrick's delicious recipes. Thank you Merrick!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dog loves this! Crosby, our lab/husky mix loves this blend! I often switch it up and buy the Texas Beef blend so she gets a bit of variety! As long as the Made in the USA label stays on it we will continue buying for her! Thanks!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed My dog is 8 years old and I have always purchased Merrick canned food and grain free turkey/chicken kibble. When this raw infused product came out I tried it several times. Not to mimic the old "where's the beef?" commercial, but where's the raw? After several bags with 3-7 raw bits in the entire bag I switched to Wellness with raw bits. That bag was loaded with raw bits. I was very surprised and very disappointed in this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Merricks Lower Calorie Grain Free My German Shepherd has been eating this for over 3 years. Started when my GSD got allergies and the sales person recommended Merricks because its limited ingredients. It worked well. Still feeding it to him!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 3 Springers Dig This Food Healthy happy dogs with this food. I like that it has Glucosamine and Chondroitin as well. I also like changing flavors in this line to give my girls something different. One request - make this in a lower calorie variety for Senior Dogs (one of my 3 springers is 13 and doesn't need all the extra calories).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Raw Very disappointed bought a bag today and not ONE piece of raw in the entire bag. Paid a premium price for something I did not get!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Back Country Raw Infused 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good clean family fun!! I was recommended this food to help put weight on my great Dane and of all the food we tried, this has been the greatest!! Great coats on all my dogs as well. I also use it to help with some of the under weight dogs I occasionally get at the shelter!! Just wonderful quality and my dogs crave it!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! I feed this to both my boxers and they love this food. The ingredients are great and my pups have shiny coats. They love the freeze dried bits! Easy to transition between protein to give the pups a variety.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food! My three dogs love this food! Any of the back country are their favorites, always digging for the raw bites. My dog has many allergies and this brand gives her the opportunity to eat more than one bag which she loves!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Our dog wasn't very interested in his food so I read about this and tried it. He absolutely loves it. I did read a lot about the dogs picking out the bits and there never being enough. So I seperate the bits from the kibble and grate them so all the kibble is covered with the bits. No more picking out just the bits. Also I love this company, as they do honor their guarantee and I was able to speak to a person right away so I love that they are available to answer any questions or concerns.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.
