    Directly from their page:

    Can I rotate foods?

    "We created the Four-Star Nutritionals line of products specifically to provide variety and encourage rotation. Each recipe is designed to be complimentary, and after transitioning to Fromm, many customers have success rotating between Four-Star recipes and even our other lines including Fromm Gold andFromm Classic.

    Finding the right food for your pet is sometimes trial and error. One of the benefits of Fromm's interchangeable lines is the ability to switch seamlessly to new recipes should you or your pet become unsatisfied with a particular entrée. However, all pets are different, and some pets have more sensitive stomachs which may prevent them from enjoying a particular recipe or a rotational diet. Other pets are more robust and require no transition period between recipes. It's really up to you and your pet how much rotation you would like to incorporate into their diet."
    I've not seen this, thank you! I always transition from puppy to four star, and it goes very well. Last time I was nearly out of puppy food so it was a very fast transition, with no problems. Only over a 2 day period. So I'm guessing while a transition is needed, it doesn't have to be a very long one as they still have many similar ingredients between the different lines.

    I've been reading all the Fromm's dog food stuff which sounds actually pretty yummy. But..... How do know which would work best. A lot are feeding the lamb and lentils or pork and peas? How do you know which to choose. Other than major tear stains and a little gas I've noticed lately her chin gets red at times. Is that normal? I have so many questions lol. One at a time though. Thanks in advance for your replies and assistance

    For me, I knew my girls allergies so I had to get something without chicken, salmon or white potato --- I started with Beef Friatta even though it had white potato because I could not use the others (chicken or salmon in them). She did well, but when Pork and Peas was introsuce... I jumped on it and she did wonderful

    The breeder where I got Brett from started feeding him adult dog food already and he just turned 4 mos old. So I just stayed with that.
