Merrick Backcountry Grain-Free Hearty Beef Stew Canned Dog Food is hot extruded (which means it's processed under extreme heat and pressure) and made with feed grade ingredients, which are unfit for human consumption. It contains 20 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 4 anti-nutrients including Dried Potatoes, Dried Peas, and Tapioca Starch (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 4 other sketchy ingredients, including Guar Gum and Caramel Color. Many consider this food to be inconvenient, because it requires clean-up.
