    @JeannieCO - I saw it at a PetValu store (pretty sure they are chains) soon after I saw @JAKEISGREAT mention it. I was surprised to see it there, but the salesman said that had just started carrying it and they do carry other high quality foods.

    That is part of the appeal to me in addition to everyone doing well on it. I could walk to PetValu from our house which is appealing in case we would ever run low, etc. I drive 30 mins now to get Fromm or order it. The Earthborn was also $49 for a 28lb bag, which is a good bit less per bag, and they were handing out coupons to promote it since it was new in the store. I will be keeping a close eye on these posts. I am definitely considering a switch & wish I hadn't just transitioned Penny to Beef Fritatta (We are only about halfway through the first bag, and I hate to change her again!). The manager was the only one who had been trained on the food & wasn't in the store when I was. I would like to go back and learn more about it.

    @desertskybulldogs - Penny gets an eye ring, too. Hers seems to be more just moisture than staining, per say. Sometime she looks like she has on goggles. I have noticed a decrease in that with her since switch from the Fromm salmon to beef fritatta.

    I haven't confirmed this but I think the rep said there is a $3 coupon available to try their food if you sign up for email updates. He also said the coupon is reprint able for a certain amount of time. I had asked him if he had coupons we could offer on EBN.

    @MissPennyLue ..Fromm is a wonderful food and Jake did very well on it. I just thought for him..I wasn't thrilled his was still not right and he scratched a lot. I tried another brand first and he had an instant horrible reaction.I went right back to Fromm and had reisigned myself to the fact..perfect just might not be available for him. A few months went by and @cowsmom researched different food. She thought this would be worth a try. I figured ok..any problems and he will be back to Fromm. I'm thrilled so far..and I hope it stays good..but if any problem I'd go to Fromm in an instant. I hope it works gret for Penny!

    THanks for your input!! She seems better in some ways since the switch to grain free (less watery eyes, better breath surprisingly!). She is still itching some...running around biting her legs occasionally & pink in the face at times. I think I'll give her a chance to see how she does on the GF Fromm before switching.

Getting ready to order second bag.

    @JeannieCO ..it is available at certain retailers. I decided to order from Petflow but it's at a small pet store about 15 minutes away. Jake is on Great Plains Feast..no chicken..grain free.
    Becky, i had no idea you changed foods! i'm soooo behind on my reading here! this is good to know and sounds like a worthwhile alternative to Fromm.

    Well I am not sure all the brands that are grain/Gluten free out there. I do know that Darford is and their food is very high rated. I had hopes to get Bella on that one, but no luck. I also know that Darford donates to Bully rescues, for every bag you buy and register, they donate a bag to their accepted rescues. I do know that Buddies thru Bullies and English Bulldog Rescue of Georgia are a couple of their accepted rescues.

    If I may add. We have switched to Taste of the Wild, Prairie and everyone here has had improvement on the tears and poops, even Jack with his scratching, it's gone. So far I'm very happy with it. Or should I say "they" are very happy with it. I also put a spoon full of yogurt on top for good measure. They all eat at the same time without bugging each other. They finish at just about the same time too. I must say, feeding time is such a pleasure around here. My list of tries has been first Fromm, then NVI and now TOTW. knock wood.

    @sheshistory the kibble is larger than NVI and Fromm. I would call it average or normal size, maybe a tad smaller.

    Interestingly, I went to my regular feed store where I get the Blue Wilderness and they just started carrying Earthborn! They had the 1lb trial bags there for $2.99 and on the back of the bag is a $3 coupon. The 28lb bag was $5 cheaper than the 24lb Blue Wilderness bag. I'm a brand loyalist (even stuck with Blue throughout the recalls) but today, I brought home 2 trial bags of the Earthborn... I don't know if I'm going to do it yet. I haven't switched food since Gizmo was born and I'm not sure $5+ savings is going to be worth it. I'll let you know if I take the plunge...

    I got Bullied and loving it!
