    The great thing about Fromm is you can swtich between flavors once they are on it.... but, since she is still a puppy you may consider the Puppy stage... you can then switch over to one of the other flavors at around 6-8 months.

    Any of the four star or the puppy gold in the pink bag. The puppy gold is what I prefer until they are a bit older, I found the others were a bit too lean during the heavy growth stage. But either way they will catch up weight wise, they always do! Lol

    I agree with all of the above .. either go for the puppy gold or one of the Fromm 4* range!!

    Remi is already 50 pounds at 10 months, and had him on all stage food from 4 months on. I'm not totally convinced puppy food is totally needed with this breed for any longer than that, but maybe that is just reflecting my obsession for a a lean and active bulldog.

    Nope you are correct, they always catch up and fill out eventually. Fromm actually recommends they stay on Fromm puppy until they are two but I think they would be mighty chubby if so! I think it's good to keep them on the multiple proteins the Fromm puppy has at least until they get through the "lanky" stage, I always switched at 16 weeks but changed my thinking on this over the past year with Pookie, he needed the extra fat content because he had so much energy to burn he was growing but looked very thin. Once I put him back on the Fromm puppy it settled out a bit, because I was having to give him more of the four star to keep any weight on him than he should have needed.

    I agree with Christine and Lisa's good advice, the Fromms are an all stages food, but since your guy is still only 19 weeks old, it's best to feed him a puppy formula until he's 6 or 7 months old. They need the extra calories and fat in puppy food for the rapid growth and development of a puppy.

    Regardless which one you choose unless you are going to get it online I would suggest buying a smaller bag just in case for whatever reason it don't work out.
