I was at home, conducting my neighborhood watch recently when the guy in the brown truck pulled up and delivered this box of Backcountry Raw-Infused from Merrick. I was quite surprised and couldn’t wait to see what was in the box!
Katie and Bailie were as curious as I was about this Backcountry, so I studied up on it and held a small seminar for them about this wonderful food. We don’t necessarily eat grain free, and Mom isn’t ready for raw, but this food is a good compromise and I think we may be switching from our current Merrick food to Backcountry. Mom says it is the food we’ve been looking for, but didn’t know we were looking for it!
Naturally, I had to sample Backcountry. I decided to start with the raw infused dry kibble which comes in four recipes: Great Plains Red, Pacific Catch, Game Bird, and Puppy. My box came with Game Bird, which is real tasty. Some of the important facts to note about this food are:
- Made in the USA
- Deboned meat is always the first ingredient
- Industry leading levels of Omega 6 & 3’s
- Industry leading levels of Glucosamine & Chondroitin
- Grain free
- Nutritional boost for high energy
- Easily digestible
- Freeze dried real meat pieces
I have to say it tastes amazing! I loved the Game Bird Recipe, but can’t wait to try the Great Plains Red Recipe as it has wabbit, along with beef and lamb! Finally a food with wabbit for me!
Since I have to watch my figure, I couldn’t eat everything so I let Bailie have a go at the Hearty Duck and Venison Stew. As you can see, she loved it and couldn’t wait for Mom to get it out of the can and into the bowl for her! Look at those nice chunks of meat in the stew! Who could wait?
- Grain free
- Exotic proteins
- Deboned meat is the #1 ingredient
- No Carrageenan
- Rich in protein
The Backcountry Hearty Stews come in five recipes: Salmon, Chicken Thigh, Duck + Venison, Beef, and yes, my dream, Rabbit! Everyone knows how I feel about wabbits, including Merrick! They were nice enough to send me a case of the Alpine Rabbit Stew to taste.
Oh my, it was absolutely amazing! My tongue came out, my eyes rolled back into my head, and I was in heaven! I’ve been waiting my entire life for wabbit dog food and now I have found it! The chunks of wabbit with vegetables and gravy are to howl for!
I give the Merrick Backcountry Recipes four paws up! My friends, this is seriously tasty and healthy food your dog will absolutely love!
