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

Thank you for all the love, fun and teachings
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.
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
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.

RIP beloved boy.
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.
yes this thread is very old and it gave me a at some of us old timers responses to it then and where we are now. im doing my best to keep my opinions of totw to myself.
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!
