    I had my bully Kooper on Blue buffalo wilderness and he has been on it for about a week now and his poop is still runny! :-( I decided to switch his food ( starting last night ) to Royal canin bulldog puppy formula in hopes that his poop will tighten up. I had also been giving him salmon oil on his food every feeding, but ive decided to skip it for a week to see if that is a contributing factor. Kooper was gaining weight wonderfully with BB, but the protein content is 37 % and RC is in the 20's..so it is a big leap as far as protein goes but the lady at the pet store was saying how it might just be too much for his tummy to handle..so im making yet ANOTHER food switch...

    I was told at the pet store that the beef frita was all life stages. Emma is almost 5 months old right now we are at about 3/4 Fromm 1/4 science diet I/d so far the poo is good but I'm wondering if she shouldn't be on the puppy gold.

    Sorry to hear Cooper is so itchy. You may want to try one of the recommended dog foods as Nutro has a lot of fillers in it.

    Hi Jill, yes it is all life stages and she will do fine. It's a little leaner than the puppy formula which is the only reason I like to stay on the puppy formula a bit longer, bit if she's doing well on the food I would stick with it. You could always get a small bag of the puppy formula and add 1/4 of the food portion as puppy and the other 3/4 as beef frittata.

    Thank you. She is a bit under weight IMO so I think I'll try mixing a little puppy food with that. We've just had stool disasters and trying to get it straight

    After reading all the great things about Fromm, I told my fiancé bout it and we are making the switch from Nutrisource grain free to Fromms grain free. We don't think he is filling out right. At 4 1/2 months old he is 38 pounds which is hefty, but he still has chicken legs. Hope this will help him.

    I'm about to start Rocco on Fromm's Beef Frittata as well. He is still on the food from the breeder (Kirkland signature) except the Costco by me only carries the Chicken not the Beef flavor and his poops have been liquidy since. When I fed him rice with the food it hardened up a bit. No better time to start this switch and I'm looking forward to it so he will be a little easier to clean up after! lol Luckily found a feed store five minutes up the road in Freehold that carries it!

    Quick question, if I know his current food is causing soft stool/diarrhea and possibly upsetting his stomach, should I still do a gradual switch?

    Yes, do a gradual switch and add 1 TBSP pure pumpkin into food will firm up poo.

    Buy at store, but make sure it's pure pumpkin NOT pumpkin pie mix.

    I am currently in the process of switching Brynn from Purina Smartblend to Fromms Beef Frittata as well; I have noticed a major improvement in her gas issue and she was going about 4 times a day now we are down to about two and they are nothing at all compared to the runny crap I had to deal with before. She seems more eager to actually eat Fromms as well. I am impressed!
