    @luvinmybullie..in my non expert opinion..give the Fromm more time..he isn't losing and their weight gain does slow down. Chaos is about same weight and age as Jake. I don't think I would go to blue buffalo and ick to purina.think you should give Fromm at least a month. This puppy stuff is hard.

    @MatildasMommy..if you belong to Costco or know someone who is..they have a very good (rating wise) dog food..darn..I can't remember the name but it's in a blue bag and I have heard good things about it. I will find the name and pm you..going there tomorrow. Might not be all stages but something to keep in mind for matilda at later date..hope your job situation improves!

    Aha! It's called natures domain....wow..can't believe that thought came to the surface!lol

Give it a few weeks to get in their system, and maybe over a period of months try a few different protein flavours. If you're not happy move on to another food.

    Nobody is ever going to be able to tell you the best food to get. It's so individual to your bully and their needs. Just go for a really good, high rated food and see what happens.
    @kazzy220.. For a 5 month old pup..which Fromm would you start with? I have Jake on natural balance..ultra classic formula which is an all stages food..he is starting to convince me he has some issues..just started with goopy eyes..bit itchy..nothing too bad..but trying to head it off. This formula is not a limited ingredient like other natural balance. Has chicken as main protein. Would appreciate some ideas. Also will put my 3 yr old non bully on whatever I go to.

    @JAKEISGREAT All of the formulas in Fromm's 4 star line are all all life stage formulas. You really can't go wrong with any of them. However, if it seems like Jake is starting to develop some allergies I would recommend sticking with their grain free formulas which is the beef frittata and surf & turf.

    Oh I know! It's amazing how much I worry about Samson's food, way more than I worry about my own diet LOL Both foods are really good, you really can't go wrong. If you have any yeast problems go with NVI, if not, I'd go with Fromm.

    Ok..that's great advice..I see no signs of any yeast issues! Yesterday and this morning started seeing some gunky eyes..just a bit..think I'll go with the surf and turf..thanks so much..

    Gosh, this is such a tough decision isn't it?? Personally, I switched to Fromm from Wellness puppy because his poops were a little soft. So far so good. I use the beef frittata and the pork and applesauce. I don't know about the weight issue...Gator gained about 12lbs in a month lol.

    From what I gathered here from reading the dog food threads is that Fromm seems to be a favorite but NVI and DVP are also given good reviews by the bully owners. I would see which one the puppy likes the best!

    Good luck!

    @JAKEISGREAT Sorry I'm a bit late replying to this!! Fromm 4* is an allstages food just as tessaandsamson said. I would like to say though that the food you currently have him on has chicken as the main protein. It seems a LOT of bullys have issues with allergies to chicken. So it could be that it's not the food but the fact that it is chicken. We only recently discovered Maggie has an allergy to chicken. Luckily it's not bad enough that we can't get away with giving her food that has traces of chicken in ... like the fromm surf n turf. However we do have to stay away from the Fromm chicken n veggie flavour!!

So now its do I try him on a different puppy food? then which one? I went to the puppy food advisor and it had chicken soup, fromm, blue buffalo, and some others all as 4 star, yet fromm is better than all of those....get why i am so frustrated??? the vets office says purina e ?? never heard of it, then the pet store says earthborn or blue buffalo, a friend who is a vet tech says totw, and I really wanted him to be on the fromm because of all the wonderful stories on here and because he really loves it sooo much....maybe one day I will be able to get him situated! I feel like a bad momma
    Snooki is now 15 weeks and I just switched her to Fromm Beef Fritata and will alternate with the fish etc... It is an all stages food so I kind of took Snooks off of puppy food.

    @kazzy220..thanks so much..I ordered the surf and turf from petflow and am relieved you agree!! I am suspicious it's chicken with Jake too. I gave him new treats from natural balance and they were sweet potato and chicken..they gave him very soft poo. He has always been okay with their sweet potato and bison treats..so must be chicken.also like Maggie..he does ok on the kibble..but just ok. Hopefully all will go well with the transition..especially since I ordered the large bag..lol..cross your fingers!
