Merrick Backcountry is an all-natural, grain free ancestral canine diet packed with protein that dogs crave. Merrick Backcountry Raw Infused kibble recipes deliver a perfect combination of protein-rich, grain free kibble plus real, whole pieces of raw, freeze-dried meat, poultry or fish. They provide your active dog the nutritional benefits of a raw diet they would have discovered in the wild, now in a safe and convenient recipe that's easy to serve.

Merrick Backcountry grain free stews offer taste variety from exotic protein blends like rabbit, venison and salmon; fresh cut vegetables; and hearty gravy. And, two 96 percent grain free loaf recipes are available in beef and chicken. Like all Merrick recipes, Merrick Backcountry is cooked in the USA in Merrick's own organically certified kitchens.
