|Yep, just like Ember said, the high pressure canning process breaks down the bone to the point that if you mush it between your fingers it, well, just mushes. The form of the bone (and the rest of it) stays in it's original shape/look, as the food goes into the can and it doesn't get mixed around. I haven't had any active part in the commercial dog food industry in a number of years, but when I did Merrick's was good stuff, and up to that point at least, I trusted them to have a quality product and to be honest it would make me sad if I found out they've gone the way of a lot of other companies.
That said, after only about a year of strictly raw feeding I tried out some canned food (a grain free beef formula from Wysong) on a trip and though the dogs didn't physically show signs of being the slightest bit "off", the resulting poos pretty much resembled the food, which is to say runny and smelly. Never tried it again, more for my sake than the dogs!
