    Ok the general consensus is Fromm it seems to be a great dog food. I had considered tasting what my dog eats because well if I don't like it how is he suppose to right? So I will be calling around to see if we have any carriers in our town however its unlikely here we have health food stores but Petsense really is all we have in the pet supplies. I even called our farm supply place no go. I will be getting it off Petflow not too mention I don't have to get my fur baby out in the heat because I love taking him with me to the pet store and if I get it from Petflow.com it comes right to my door. YAY!!!

He doesn't have any problems now, no tear staining and no pink belly and inner thighs. Currently I am feeding Whole Earth Farms which is made by Merrick. And that makes up about 70 to 80 % of the kibble and the remaining 20 to 30 % Fromm. I went to Fromm exclusively for a while but Ace seemed to be straining more in his bowel movements so I was going to go back to the Canidae and Fromm mix on which he was doing so well. Where I get my food the owner suggested Whole Earth Farms Adult and so then started mixing it with the Fromm and the bowel movements were/are good. I also like the larger kibble size of the Whole Earth Farms over the Fromm which is very small pellets. It smell really good and tastes good too. Yes I taste all their kibble to see what it tastes like to me. If you are looking for a multiple protein source such as Canidae then I would suggest comparing the ingredients to Whole Earth Farms which also has multiple protein sources.
    can I get that off Petflow?

    I will be totally honest. If it wasn't for this site I wouldn't know about Fromm's and the other great dog foods out there. I am glad I have been educated before getting my first Bully and have been doing a lot of soul searching in memory of one of my past fur babies that had issues all his life and wonder if any of it could have been attributed to his food. Enough of that though... Good luck with the food you choose and remember each bully is different so there may be some trial and error in the process.

    I have used both and back before they changed formulas candidae worked well for cutty. But it isn't as high a quality food as Fromm so that's why I use Fromm. The $ difference is huge if I remember correctly so if you can't afford to buy Fromm then candidae isn't a bad choice.

    I went with Merrick Whole Earth Farms because its got the bigger food the smaller nuggets doesn't seem to fill him up. He seems to fill up better with the bigger food nuggets. I only got the smaller bag at first to see how he does with it.

    Love has a name and its name is Sheldon!!!<3

    I have remorse too Todd over the same thing. Back in the mid 70's I had an AKC Amstaff from a champion pedigree. And I didn't know diddly squat about dog food. I lived in a small rural town and bought the food from an FRM feed store. It was one of their better foods but would be considered crap today. He did well it seems, was strong and robust but now I imagine what he would have been like if he had a quality food. There was no internet and no way of knowing what was good vs bad and I was nave as well. The higher quality foods that may have existed back then would have been unknown around here anyway and no where to purchase. There are actually today quite a few good quality foods as compared to yesteryear. So much better and better access as well as the ability to make a reasonable choice.
