Thread: Salmon Breath

  1. #1

    Default Salmon Breath

    We have always been pleased with Fromm 4 star. For a long time, we fed our pups Fromm Salmon al a Veg, but i got fed up with fish breath. So we switched to Fromm Lamb and Lentil. We have recently been to the vet battling a chronic ear infection with Meatball. After a culture, the vet put her on an 8 week course of antibiotics that get inserted into her ear. After the treatment was over the vet suggested that the chronic ear condition could be the result of allergy and asked me about food. I went back to my past orders at Petflow and found that about 3 weeks before the 1st ear infection I switched from the Salmon food to the Lamb food. Soooooo I need to switch back. Does anyone have any advice on dealing with fish breath? Is there something I can give the dogs to eat to mitigate the bad breath? Is there a different type of fish based food that doesn't smell? It's not un-livable, but I'd rather not have a strong smell of fish on their breath. As always thanks in advance for any advice or guidance.

    I use Taste of the Wild Pacific Salmon. I also give them a little before bed, with two tablespoons of plain active culture yogurt. None of my dogs have fish, or bad breath.

    Someone her does feed the Fromm fish, but can not remember who does... sorry! On a side note, I had almost the same issue with Banks on the Lamb and Lentil... had to go back to the Pork and Peas and once I did everything was fine

    So, I called Petflow to return my unused bag of Fromm Lamb & Lentil and they suggested Natural Balance L-I-D as a good single protein source food. The gentleman suggested I try Sweet Potato and Venison. Anyone have any experience with this brand & type of food?

    There are a few members that use Natural Balance, but of course, I can not totally remember user names. You might want to start a new thread with that food in the title asking for feedback.
