Do you have a link to that? This is the first I heard about it. They were very helpful to me when my dog first got sick and I contacted them about diet.

I raised my one GSD pup on Fromm about 3 years ago and she did great. My GSD pup from last year could not tolerate it. It all depends on the pup.

The only problem I see with people saying a food is good or is bad is that you need to back up a claim with legitimate evidence. Saying the ingredients look good and its family owned and blah blah doesnt make it a good food. I dont know if Fromm has any research or trials on their food and they dont employ a veterinary nutritionist on staff full time. Its just like honest kitchen, we get caught up in the marketing of hearing "human grade" and then think its a great food. How does anyone know its actually a properly formulated food for K9s? I would practice caution with those types of foods and place a little more value on proven science not just peoples recs because they liked the company. At least with companies like Purina and Royal Canin, you know they have been around a long time, they do research on their foods, they conduct feeding trials, and dont have dogs dying from heart failure, unlike many of these brands with grain free foods or improper formulations. Will I feed Purina, probably not, but if I had to make a choice, Id gladly feed it over Fromm. I personally feed a mix of Victor and RC/Euk sport and rotate for variety.

Even the DCM researchers at UC Davis admit the DCM scare is based on corelation and hypothesis. They don't know what's causing it yet. Or why Golden Retrievers are so over represented. There are a lot of variables under consideration.

Neither company - fromm and victor have veterinary nutrionists on staff. Victor does have a certified nutritionist on staff with a master in science. Fromm has a non certified nutritionist who is currently working on getting certified/masters in science. It does go by what your dog does best on to. I have had no issues with any of the foods. Max and Luna’s coats looked best on fromm grainfree game bird / just extra soft and super shiny they were always heavy shedder but now it’s seems to be constant- whether that makes sense or not. Of course with all the issues with grainfree I will not feed unless I had to.
