Default Experience with Fromm Four Star Grain Free?

I'm debating a food switch, I love the food Thor is on but he seems to always have pink eyes and eye boogers. After extensive research, the Fromm GF foods are pretty high up on my list. Does anybody have experience (good or bad) with this line of food?

After reading MANY threads on dog food and feeding, I understand that everyone has an opinion about what is the best / worst possible diet. Please try to keep the responses to the question at hand. I'm sure whatever you feed your dog is great for you and them, but I am specifically looking for experience with the Fromm Grain Free kibbles.

Thanks

It's in my rotation, and my dogs like it and do well on it. Nice coats, good poops. Favorites seem to be Surf & Turf, and Game Bird.

It's what I feed my dogs. I swap them each bag through all the grain free flavours and they like them all. The dogs are happy and healthy with it, so I'm very happy with it

Thank you both, I'm really liking what I've read about it so far.

I feed my 7 year old male the Fromm Gold and he does very well on it. Never a problem. I also like Merrick and mix some of their can food in with his Kibble.

I don't feed the grain free yet I may at a year. I'm feeding the Gold large breed puppy. He does great on it. Shiniest coat and great poops

This is my go-to puppy kibble as well. Great stuff.

I have consulted two different vets, neither of which were as concerned about Thor's eye boogers as I am. The second vet suggested switching brands of food, and if that didn't resolve it, consider a limited ingredient formula to try and narrow it down to what may be his mild allergy.
