    Default Fromm Beef Fritatta for puppys???

    I am wanting to switch Memphis from Natures Variety Instinct to Fromm Beef Fritatta or the surf n turf which r both grain free but he is 4 months old... Is it ok or should I put him on the Fromm puppy? The Fromm puppy is not grain free n he has always been on grain free so I am so unsure what to do...

    Hi @Bekah Bardwell..while no expert ..here's my experience! I JUST finished transitioning Jake ..who is nearly 6 months old..to surf and turf. It is an all stages food..good for puppies to adults. He is doing great..so far. Also..FYI.. I NEVER had Jake on a "puppy" food. He came home with us on iams puppy and I immediately started switching to natural balance..also an all stages food. Hope this helps!

    Fromm is an all stages food and should be ok for puppies. Remember to transition slowly when switching. =)

    The owner of the shop where i bought it said that it wasnt an all stage food but that it could be used for puppies but u would have to feed them more. The feeding amounts on the back say for his weight not age is 1 1/2 - 2 1/3 BUT Two to Four times that amount for Puppies or nursing dogs... Thats ALLOT if i have to double etc... A large bag would only last a few week to where as an all stage food u feed the same amount just depending on the age right? Just trying to double check to make sure... It also says this online...

    Oh i failed to mention lol that obviously the sales lady was wrong because even if u have to triple the amount then it IS still an all stage... Just worried about having to feed so much...

    Thats exactly what I read once i got hm so that sales lady was incorrect but it says on the back that puppies will need 2 to 4 times the amount listed... Why not bullies? lol excuse my ignorance ;0) I am just afraid he is not going to get what he needs if i dont feed more like it says...

    Most puppies require extra protein during growth, but it is said (don't quote me because this is hearsay) that bullies should not have too much protein during growth stage as it is hard on their bones and devopement, so you don't want them to grow too fast. But yes, you should feed more that you would feed an adult. I fed my puppies 1.5 cups twice a day, when they were younger than 5 months I was not feeding fromm. As adults I feed them 3/4 (for the chubby ones) or 1 cup (for the right weight ones) twice a day.

    Hi again..yes I did feed Jake more when he was on natural balance too..I did 3/4 cup 3 times a day..I just couldn't get him up to 1 cup each time..his poo would get runny..I now feed him twice a day..and 1 1/2 cup each time. I do give him a few green beans and some apple at midday..poor guy..I think he misses his lunch! I have noticed on the Fromm I didn't have the problem of his getting runny poo when I increased amount of each feeding. He does poo a huge amount tho!! Hope not TMI !!



    Meant to add..my vet ascribes to the " not too much protein"club. Hope she was right! He seems fine.weighs about 31 lbs and lots of energy!

    YAY!!! I am so glad he is doing better! How much did you end up feeding him?

    I came to this kind of late but I put Gator on Fromm Beef Frittata at about 7 months or so and started Gypsy on it right away at 15 weeks when we got her. They are doing great. Both of mine get 2 cups, 2X's a day and they are both looking perfect as far as weight.
