    Default Has anyone's dog not done well on Fromms Pork & Peas?

    I did the slow transition from Taste of the Wild (purple bag) to Fromms Pork & Peas and I don't think it's going well. Gypsy is itching a lot on her neck and has spots on her neck where the fur is thinning. It was concentrated to one side but I noticed today she is starting to itch on the other side.

    I'm wondering if I made a mistake switching. She was having a really hard time pooping on TOTW so I thought Fromms would help that. I also thought I was giving her better food.

    She's gone thru 2 small bags (4lb) and has been on only Fromms for about a week. I have a 12lb bag that I'm not sure I should open.

    Would it be beneficial to switch to Beef Frittata? Should I go back to TOTW cold turkey?

    Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Ami

    HRH seemed to get more tear stains and licking on P&P so we switched her back to Beef Frittata.

    Dudley did okay on it...but he doesn't "like" it...won't touch it now.

    It could be the peas. I had to take Lucy off of Earthborn Holistics because she was all red and itchy and got yeasty. Peas was pretty high on the ingredient list.

    I started Finn on the Fromm's Pork and Peas a few wks ago; noticed he too was starting to itch more so i'm transitioning him to home cooking. Meanwhile, Tate who was on homecooking is now being transitioned to the Pork and Peas and seems to be doing very well with it. Finn doesn't seem to like the taste of the P and P, not sure really, unless i mix it with some homecooking. I'm getting dizzy trying to figure out the food for my boys but i'm hopeful there's a light at the end of this food tunnel!

    3 of my pack do better on beef frittata, the other are on pork and peas. None if them really had any major problems, but less gas or nose rope cleaning but shows what works for one is not perfect for the other

    Don't go back cold turkey, it will cause stomach upset. But I would transition back and see how it's going.

    Would it be ok to do a cold turkey switch to beef frittata?

    I am watching this post because I just ordered two bags of P & P for my gang. If any itchy or tear stains show up, back to what I know works, Earthborn and/or Beef Frittata

    Yes it would, but if it were me I would want to go back to the other to make sure it wasn't coincidence or an environment or contact allergy. Or you could switch to beef frittata and if that doesn't fair well either then go back to the original food. Either way you will be able to narrow things down.

    We use Fromms Beef Frittata, I tried to give them a new flavour about a month ago, but they don't sell the pork and peas anywhere in my area, they only have applesauce and pork, and that one is not grain free. Blossom is allergic to chicken and salmon, and she is either allergic or sensitive to corn and grains, so we bought Duck and Turkey, and she immediately had a reaction to that flavour, she was itchy, licking her paws, and her ears were red and warm. I took the bag back and exchanged it for the Beef Frittata. I'm not going to switch them again, because they've been on this for 11 months and are doing really great on it. It could be the pork, or the peas causing the reaction in Gypsy. You can try switching her to Fromms Beef Frittata, and you don't have to do a slow transition, as you can interchange any of the Fromms flavours. It can take a month for the old food to completely leave their systems, so you may not see an improvement until then. Good luck finding a food that agrees with Gypsy, so many of our guys are sensitive to many proteins, and what works for one, doesn't always work for another. It's really just trial and error, and when you find a good quality food that works, it's best to stick with it. Keep us posted on how she's doing. Love and hugs.
