    Default Fromm Beef Fritata not gaining weight.

    Hi, I have a 7 months old english bulldog he is about 33 lbs now, we've been feeding him with Fromm Beef fritata for 3 months now and he only gained about 5-6 lbs since switching and we are feeding him 1.5 Cups (2 times per day). Should I change his food?

    Thanks

    Although many people here use Fromm, and it is an excellent food choice-it sounds to me like you are not giving your Tiny enough food. @bullmama @Davidh others will be by to offer their suggestions.

    That is 3 cups a day, sounds sufficient to me. We would love to a see pictures of TINY. Perhaps he is just built to be small. Nothing wrong with that so long as he is healthy. Bulldogs come in different sizes.

    Winnie is 7 months old and weighs 34 pounds, but she is really not gaining weight nearly as fast as she did. By 7 months, I think they all slow down.

    The boys are 10 months old and we still feed them Fromm Puppy in the Pink bags and they are doing great. I plan to keep them on it for at least a year. DavidH told me the protein or fat or something in the pink bag keeps the pups in line. Drank too many beers grilling on the green egg. Damn good steak. Email DavidH. Ralphie

    Some bullies are naturally smaller then others. What does your pup look like when you stand over top of them looking straight down? Does he have a nice hourglass shape?

    My Harlea will be 2 in a few month and is only 35lbs soaking wet and aside from allergies she is very health and energetic.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Sounds like he is getting enough food, and as others have said, some sre just smaller than others. He should still grow some, and once he gets two years old, that's when he will start to fill out and widen out. Bullies don't really stop growing until they are around 3 years of age.
