Not my dogs favorite flavor...
on August 18, 2013
I've had a lot of success with the Merrick Grain-Free wet foods, but every time I have fed my dogs the Cowboy Cookout flavor, they hesitated at the bowl. They are normally not picky eaters, so the hesitation has been particularly noticeable. Sometimes, they'll even leave some food in the bowl when they finish and walk away. That just doesn't happen with any other flavor.
On the other hand, it's high quality, healthy food. My 12-year old German Shorthaired Pointer has very bad digestion (visited the emergency room with bloating once--it was nearly lethal). We searched for years to find food that would lower his distress. While other brands had moderate success, the Merrick grain-free wet food eliminated 98% of his problems. The Cowboy Cookout flavor is no different.
One last note...if you order any flavor of Merrick wet food, your case is almost definitely going to be dented pretty severely. It's no big deal for me because I know the problem is physical damage, not swelling from bacteria. I've never actually had a can bust open even after 25+ cases. Still, if you're not expecting to see the damage, it can be disconcerting. Nonetheless, my rating is based solely on the flavor preferences of my dog, not the shipping.
