    Hi everyone! I just tried natures logic duck and salmon, winston and Rollie both loved it, but the food is in such small pieces.. Most of it falls out of their mouth on to the floor, they won't eat it off the floor, I have to put it back in the bowl. ( too expensive to sweep up in the sweeper!) those of you that feed fromm, is the kibble normal sized? They really liked the Fromm treats I bought. But I haven't known them not to ever like Treats Lol thanks for the help!

    Fromm kibble is small too. Same with natures variety. Funny they won't eat it off the floor!

    I came home to my poor Geno with hives He has been eating taste of the wild pacific stream for about two months. Idon't think its the food, I think he is allergic to grass or something. anway, he lost weight on his last food, so that is when i made the switch and he gained it all back. it does stink but he seems to like it.

    I used TOTW Pacific Stream with all my dogs successfully for years. In fact, it was the only food my late EB Zelda could eat without getting allergy issues. The protein levels are good, not too high, not to low and the price is right. However, I did find that Pacific Stream was causing the tear stains on my EB Zamboni (through a misguided food change that lead to nightmareish consequences skin wise). I now have moved over to the lamb formula which has the same amount of protein and fat as the fish. So far, no tear stains. Fromms is not readily available in my area so I haven't tried it yet. It's also about 20 bucks a bag more than TOTW and that doesn't work real well on a retirement income.

    We have both of ours on Fromm and we love it ... I don't even wipe their wrinkles more than once a month now because there is just nothing there to wipe!!!!

    @Maximus Yes food could cause interdigital cysts and chin acne as both are signs of a potential food allergy. It may not even be the food itself it could be the protein source. For example Maggie got really bad interdigital cysts which then became infected whilst she was on Fromm chicken n veggies. As long as we stay clear of the chicken flavour then the Fromm is just wonderful.

    @Kim Sebastian n Oliver Maggie is on 3/4 cup twice a day and she's 35lb and 3 years old. Daddy is now on 1 1/4 cups per day and he is close to 50lb and 9 months old. So we get through 4 cups a day .... a 30-ish lb bag will last approx 4 weeks. As Daddy gets older we'll probably cut him down to 1 cup at each meal and see how he does. At the moment he's starting to put a bit of weight on ...not too much but I'm going to be watching him closely. He's long bodied so sometimes it's not as easy to notice their weight as it is with the "butterball" shaped bullies!!

    Agreed...Cami is a long bodied, big boned girl and weighs 62lbs (down 2 lbs from 2 mo's ago).

    She was on Fromm's Veg a la Chicken but had terrible gas and constantly! Knowing lots of EBs
    are sensitive to poultry, I slowly switched her to TOTW Salmon but as with my other EB, it also
    caused stinky, constant gas so I switched to TOTW Bison & Venison and just now starting on the
    2nd bag...only occasional gas (thank goodness) and she eats it right away.

    I feed her 1 & 1/4 cup TWICE a day with about 1 teasp of cottage cheese or plain yogurt on top.
    Brutus was big too, about 58lbs and got the same amount and had a waistline as Cami is starting
    to have.


    IMHO...3 cups daily of these nutrient dense foods we're talking about is too much food for our EBs.

    You might cut it to 2 & 1/2 cups divided into 2 or 3 feedings and add the rest as green beans if he
    seems hungry. Some EBs always act hungry...the cute little piggys!

    On the dog that died of kidney failure, IMHO...not caused by Fromm food...something else was
    going on in that case...such a shame.




    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    I have fed Pickle Fromm (didn't do well for her), Natures Variety (tear stains worsened) and now she is eating Natures Logic (fingers crossed). Of the three, I think Fromm has the largest kibble and NL is the smallest. My little vacuum gets whatever is in her dish right down with no issues. If it falls on the floor so be it she will get it later.

    No worries. This thread is over two years old and there has never been any other person who suggested such a thing. Could've been a Internet troll trying to start false rumors.

    It's difficult, especially as these companies get bought out then change how they process
    or change their food sources WITHOUT that information updated on their product bags or
    their websites...there is so much deception going on! Even if the food is healthy there can
    be processing or chemicals or preservatives added that are NOT healthy for our pets.

    When I get a better handle on my current challenges going on, I hope to home cook almost
    exclusively for my family and my pets from local farmers using no chemical/pesticides and
    allows free range and grass feeds. They offer shipping (for city folk) and also, discounts for
    larger orders, my neighbor & I are thinking of doing this and splitting costs. Want to buy meat,
    eggs, veggies & fruits.

    I firmly believe it's healthier and cheaper in the end because of fewer doctor & vet visits.

    It's challenging, exhausting and difficult to eat healthy for man or beast in today's chemical soups
    found in our air, land, water...it's everywhere. GOD protect and bless all of us!
