“Interest in ancestral canine diets is on the rise as pet parents seek ways to feed their dogs as they may have eaten in the wild,” said Sapir. “Merrick Backcountry is an ultimate ancestral diet that brings together many of the mega trends in the pet food aisle, from freeze-dried raw to exotic protein blends to grain-free, high-protein recipes made from real deboned meat.”
Complementing the Merrick Backcountry dry recipes are five grain-free stews with 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 or chicken.
