    Since we have to tranistions our dogs regular food slowly to a new food; do we have to do the same thing when switching from one type of treat to another?

    USUALLY... treats are not a big part of your bullies diet (at least HRH's aren't) so no transitioning. But, having said that make notice of any changes in the things that food allergies affect, such as poo, pimples, scratching, etc. when you change. If you notice anything stop the new treat and resort to the old one to see if the change goes away indicating it was the new treat that was causing the problem.

    Can I go strait to beef frita or should I be thinking about Fromm Gold Puppy instead for now.



    Sorry to hijack the thread I can create another if need be.
    You may want to consider the 4 star it is for any age. Lisa Suggested the 4 star fromm to me for Coop. I just ordered it last week hope it gets here soon!!!! My mom has Gracie on the Fromm Gold Puppy but I told her she needs to switch to the 4 star. They say to start feeding adult food around 5 months or so. But the 4 star like I said I think that is for all ages and you should be fine starting him on it at 4 monthsold!

    I don't transition treats but he doesn't get too many anyway. We usually do a 3-4 day food transition. He has never had a problem with the quick transition.

    So far she loves it, she keeps standing by the door and when I open it she goes straight for that bag lol (she never did that with Canidae!)
    I replied with the following a while ago but for some reason I now can't find it. It may have to do with the sever upgrade that is taking place today. Anyway, I am glad I saved it lol

    Doing a slow transition is so their tummy doesn't get upset from the difference in ingredients in the old and new foods. It basically is feeding 1/4 new food mixed with 3/4 old for for about a week, then mix 1/2 and 1/2 old and new for another week. Then 3/4 new food and 1/4 old food for another week before feeding 100% new food. Along the way, if your bullie starts to get loose poo you may want to back up a little on the mixture for a while longer before preceding.
    Also, I had a discussion with a rep from Earthborn a few weeks ago and he said that whenever he transitions from one food to another he adds a couple tablespoons of canned pumpkin to the mix. Said he never has a soft poo issue doing it that way. Hope this helps someone.

    @BruceP I have heard about the canned pumpkin, we might try that though so far no loose poo. I need to be careful because she's crazy about this new food I don't want to feed her too much! Your information does help me, I hope this helps take care of her tear stains as well!

My dog is very allergic to all chicken products, so unfortunately I can't use any of the Fromm foods since all of them contain some sort of chicken skin, chicken fat or chicken cartiledge. Does anyone on this site have any other suggestions? I have my bully on Prescription Science Diet, D/D, Venison and Sweet Potatoe and he loves it and I haven't had hives/allergies since he went to this restricted diet. I've heart a lot of backlash from this site about Science Diet (even the prescription, sensitive skin formula that is hypoallergenic and I have had not problems with for over 6 months). I pay over $65 for a 17 lb bag - so if there is something better that is chicken free (completely) I would like to try to switch Rocco. Thanks!

    I'm lucky in that Maggie's allergic reaction to chicken isn't enough to rule out the Fromm Beef and I can even get away with small does of the other flavours as long as it's for a very short time. BUT give her the Fromm Chicken and it's just a mess!!!!

    As for a food that doesn't have ANY chicken in it .... I'm going to tag @cowsmom who has done a lot of research on different foods for her bully and see if she can give you any recommendations to try!!

    Chicken is bad for bullies? Wow, first i've heard of this. How did I not learn of this before?

    I recently switched Fergie from Royal Canin 24 to Fromm a few weeks ago after visiting EBN and learning that RC24 is junk food. Started Fergs on the Beef Frittata and wanted the Surf and Turf but the store was out. I ended up buying a bag of Chicken A-La-Veg not realizing this as the 2nd option. The switch went smooth...no tummy issues but did notice changes in allergies (red spots, pimples, paw licking, red eyes, smelly poops almost completely stopped). She just finished the Beef Frittata and started the Chicken A-La-Veg yesterday night for dinner. I'll have to look at her poop later today when I get home.

    Is chicken bad for all bullies?

    I didnt read other post but chicken is NOT bad for bullies. I know that some bullies have an allergy to chicken so if you feed your bully chicken and notice hives, hot spots, red face, ect he may have a chicken allergy! i think the easiest way is to get an allergy test done to see what allergies your bully has!

    Soft poo and licking of the paws, and pimples may be showing an allergy to something also! I wold just watch her like you said and see......if yo feel like she did better with the beef frittata then go back to that
