    Starting to get some nuggets! Thanks for the tips all. Follow up question however: If I want to try another flavor in the Fromm's line like the beef frittata, does that require doing the gradual food change method as well?

    If you are using the 4 Star grain free line you don't need to do a switch. You could have one flavor for lunch and a different flavor for dinner if you wanted to.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

Some on breakfast, some on dinner. But, she has not any issues like Chums w the rashes.. Her poo is a little harder than I think it should be but I'm not sure how to soften it just a bit.
    more water in the diet should help. also canned pumpkin works both ways. for diarrhea or constipation so you could use some of that. ive also found canned food will loosen my dogs stool quicker than anything. perhaps some ice cubes as treats.

    Thank you, we have been giving her some ice cubes and a little more yogurt as a snack which seems to be helping. I will go get some pumpkin and a cpl cans if food as well in the event it doesn't stay erm..moister? Lol

    i would think after a month the dog would have better i would give it a bit more time but if nothing changes i would think about switching flavors of fromm. could be anything in there not agreeing with him.

    When mack was on fromm his poops were yellow too. We switched to natural balance bc I wanted to try food that wasnt sweet potato bc I heard white potatos are totally different and he might only be allergic to sweet potatos, so I tried the LID duck and potato, its easier to find and fromm pork n peas was impossible to find in stores. The natural balance made macks poop black...anyways, we are trying the legume flavor now bc though mack improved, I felt it could be better...he has never had tear stains with any food yet, so I will be on the lookout

    Still goes back and forth on hard to soft. Going to try yogurt. I am going to try a different Fromm's next weekend as she wil be out by then. Also still trying to finish off the Royal Canin... really don't want it to go to waste. She had some pretty nasty ones this weekend however. Going to hold back treats and perhaps use yogurt if she follows commands!.

    Just a thought, Jake was on Surf n Turf. It does have chicken in it. He is sensitive to chicken and did much better on the Beef Fritatta.
    @Chumley...I'm wondering if cutting out the yogurt might help. Yogurt makes Jake have soft poo. Just a chance...

    I am going to try out the beef next go around and see if it reacts better with her.

I may go back..and just watch for tear stains. His tail pocket is also always clean now since being on Fromms so Im not really sure what i want to do yet.
