I rotate through all the grain-in Fromm Four Star varieties except Pork & Applesauce (which gives one of my dogs the runs). We occasionally rotate in a bag of Fromm Gold (grain-in), which has at least as good an ingredient list, at a lower price.
Keep on eye on our FDA thread -- that's where you'd find updates, as that thread keeps moving when people find stuff worth sharing.
I've bookmarked the thread, I appreciate the tip! I was using the grain in Victor foods to rotate through with him but, he always prefered their fish formula. I liked that Fromm seems like a similar quality food with plenty of bags to switch through. I also like that they offer bags that are more than 15 pounds and less than 30, I don't like his kibble lasting more than 2 months.
I havenít tried any of the different proteins out with success, Lyka does best on the gold. Why fix what isnít broken? Lol.
They all have great coats, mostly solid stools (unless DH or one of the kids sneak them human treats), and havenít had an issue with any of the dogs rejecting it.
I think Obi has become a picky eater too. I've tried cycling through the Victor grain in food but, he always preferred their Ocean Fish variety so it'd be in the cycle more often. When they first changed their formula I tried 2 other bags of Victor that I ended up donated because he just turned his nose up at them, got the Ocean Fish again and he ate it. I knew I was gonna have to find a new brand for him. That was one thing I really liked about Victor though, he is and was healthy on it. He has an incredibly soft and shiny coat. So thanks for the info, hopefully he just just as well on Fromm but actually enjoys a meal
I'm following the FDA updates, ect, and would make switches if more information comes to light, but I do not want to make any changes at this time as all the dogs seem to be doing well and like their food.
That was my original plan but, he just doesn't like any of their kibble as much since Victor changed their formula. I've tried 3 bags that he would eat before. I've heard good things about Fromm, but figured it was worth asking for specific opinions. I really appreciate you taking the time to reply
I do rotate foods and found a few more to rotate with all the dm scare. I feed the Fromm Large breed gold , Fromm highlander bees lamb And Oates barley, and Annamaet Extra. They have been on Annamaet Extra for a few weeks and doing good with the switch. I add either plain yogurt, eggs or dehydrated beef patties - Stellaís chewies it primal or fresh meat. I will be adding Farmina and dr Timís not yet added to the rotation. I have not yet tried the new victors. I do give beefs patties twice a week- primal or k9 cravings. Sometimes they get honest kitchen or the paradigm but thatís not on a regular basis. The dogs do get bored so it is good to change things up as long as they do well with the changes.
I'll have to look into a lot of those names you said you add to their kibble. Right now we have a Yorkie that is basically going into kidney failure and on a bland diet so we have been cooking chicken and ground beef and rice for his meals as per vets suggestion. So Obi has been getting that mixed in his food as well because he just knows if their food is different. It's been helping me get through the rest of this bag until I've finally gotten low enough to be ready to mix it into the new brand I choose and get rid of it.
