    Default Another food question!!

    I am feeding Bruno Fromm 4 Star Salmon a La Veg. Is it OK to change to another flavour occasionally? I don't want him getting bored with eating salmon. As far as we know he doesn't have any allergies. Is it best to stay away from the grain free? Just in case the dreaded allergy day arrives.

    Also, if he can change flavours, do I need to do the transition period?

    Apologies if I have repeated a question that has been asked many times, this food business just confuses the hell out of me.

    With Fromm you can change flavors with no transition. Hope this helps

    Thanks Laurie, I didn't think I needed to do the transition.

    Bruno is adorable, by the way. Love that look in the pic.

    No transition when switching flavors is (supposed to be) the beauty in those Fromm products. Unless your pup doesn't do well with the other protein in the new flavor, you're good to go.

    Thanks Vicaroo & 2BullyMama, that's what I thought. I want to give him a bit of variety with his food.

    It's not just Fromm. In most good quality dog foods, you don't have to transition when you change flavors within the same formula. For example - if you're staying within the Fromm Four-Star formula you can switch flavors any time without having to go through a transition, even between with-grain and grain-free items - of course, this is if your dog is not allergic to the different protein sources.

    The thing you need to be careful with is when you change to a different formula even within the same brand. For example, going from Fromm Four-Star to Fromm Gold, you might need to go a little slowly to transition. But, if the dog food contains probiotics, you have a better chance to transition quicker when switching formula within the same brand. Both Fromm Four-Star and Fromm Gold contains the same kinds of probiotics, so you have a higher chance of not having issues with a quicker transition.

    Hope this helps.
