    Default Fromm pork and applesauce

    Guinness continues to have bumps and scabs on his back and I have tried multiple medications and shampoos to no avail. I am going to try and switch from fromm salmon to fromm pork and applesauce and add grizzly salmon oil. Anyone had any experience with the pork and applesauce??

    Poor baby. No experience with fromm sorry but I bet someone here uses it. Hope you get this cleared up soon.

    Bruno had bumps and scabs on his back also Little patches of hair would fall off. I thought it was food related, but he had an infection. The vet gave him a shot. When he got better and I switched him over to Raw over a year ago. He has improved. No stink, no bumps and no tear stains.
    Have you taken him to the vet??

    yes, I'm in the process of taking my American bulldog off the Fromm Pork and also in the process of taking my 4 off fromm beef. Our new food came today. NVI salmon based, no grain no potato. If I have any problems after this.........I pull out my hair. I really would like to have all 5 on the same thing. We shall see.

    Jake is making the exact same change as Sherry. Off Fromm beef fritatta and on to NVI salmon. He gets little tiny bumps also. What works for me is I take mal-o-ket wipes and saturate the bumps..luckily this has been working. Most of the time the bumps are totally hidden under his fur..no bald spots. Once in awhile a teeny scab will come off with hair attached..I just try and stay on top of the bumps as best I can. I don't know what the cause is..I might never know..I'm just hoping my little ritual keeps working. I'm sorry I can't help more..cuz me loves me some Guinness!

    @Sherry I wanted to try another fromm 4 star series as he has been on fromm since we brought him home @ 8 weeks. Also, didn't want to start a grain free food if he didn't have a grain allergy. So hopefully new food and salmon oil and fixes, if not back to the drawing board. sometimes i wish it was easy as buying huge generic bag from bj's wholesale or sams club lol

    I absolutely hear you loud and clear. I went from worrying about tear stains to yeasty folds and feet, I believe this is a terrible year for allergies.

    @Sherry thankfully any type of yeast has stayed away from guinness, just tons of gunk under that little rope nose of his. a lof of people i have talked to with different types of dogs say their allergies kicked up more or they formed allergies (the dogs that is)...

    You know..I just received an email from my vet..talking about how Jake is maturing (11 months) and this next 6 months to a year will be when ANY genetic health problems will start to show up..from allergies to the much more serious hip dysplaysia and etc. She also stated that dogs of ALL breeds were suffering from environmental allergies right now. Maybe some solace to you. It's a tough thing to figure out.

    @wfd38383 Bruno got a shot of Convenia...This one shot lasts 2 weeks. He said if he didnt improve and the bumps did not go away he would get another, but one was all that was needed. He still gets one every so often but nothing like he got before.

    Will be bringing a new Bulldog puppy home December 4th (Yay!). Have been investigating foods and found that Fromm 4* advertises that it is an all-life stages food. Has anyone had experience feeding 4* to a puppy? Does anyone have an opinion as to whether or not this is advisable? the LPS near me doesn't carry Fromm Puppy otherwise I would consider using that instead. Thanks in advance.
