Anyone using FROMM large breed puppy? What do u think?

Sergeant is on BB large breed puppy, he loves the taste but has terrible gas/fish burps and loose stool. Plus terrible "tuna" breath. He must be having trouble digesting the Blue Buffalo. This is only the last month or so (he is 5 mos. now). We took a nap together the other day and he woke me up with stinky gas WOW it was bad. I was looking into FROMM because it had probiotics in it and also salmon oil - not fish meal like BB. He is otherwise in great health and is totally happy. Should I make a change (slowly)?

I feed my dogs Fromm Gold Large Breed. My 3 yr old has a delicate stomach and this is the only feed that doesn't cause him issues. Never noticed "wake me up" gas either. Just the usual doggy poot!

The poor guy has it bad, a belch that stinks just like fish. Thanks for responding.

Delgado ate Fromm LBP from 3 months to 1 year before switching to a ALS (Fromm Four Star grain free line). He did very well on it, never turned his nose up and his coat and overall health was fantastic

I do like the little extras they add like the probiotics and salmon oil, the only thing I add to the kibble outside of a little warm water is Tripett so they get some of the benefits of tripe without me feeding it raw and puking my guts out lol

I use Fromm LBP and I really like it. Athena has good stools and she has a pretty sensitive stomach. She gobbles it up everytime. It is also family owned and I have never heard of them having a recall.

I used it too, but I don't think it was the best food I could have bought - but only because later on my puppy was showing signs of allergies, and I think a food intolerance might have played a part. I'd still recommend it though. DH had to switch kibbles with his dog because of the room-clearing farts she used to let loose, lol.

I raised Beau on it and really liked it. Went to a higher protein food when he was grown.
