    Default what to do for 4 days?

    so i placed my order from petflow for my fromm puppy food for some reason they shipped it to the billing address instead of the shipping address witch are different. so was it looks like it wont get here till maybe Friday or Saturday
    the thing is im running really low n the bag i have my question is should i just buy a 4 pound bag of some other type of dog food to hold him off? not sure what other options i have, and i don't want to transition him to this new food and then back to fromm i would think thats bad for his tummy any help would be appreciated thanks.

    I assume you have him on FROMM now? Have you checked with other stores around your area, maybe a feed store? Some carry FROMM. Some of our feed stores carry it and that's where I buy mine from.

    if you can't find any Fromm, you could always do home cooking. Hamburger or chicken, rice, beans, veggies, a little butter and water to tide him over. My boys love this and sometimes I make some just for a topper on their food for a treat.

    I forgot to order a new bag when I was running low a few months ago so just fed them the Bland Diet, they love it! Boiled hamburger and white rice or pasta, and sometimes I would add green beans or peas!

    I would do home cooking, too! It will get them fed until the Fromm arrives!

    I would use cooked, boneless chicken. It doesn't matter what cut- just be sure all the little bones are out of it. White rice, boiled- I like to use the boil in bag rice. I can't cook regular rice on a stovetop to save my life. Brown rice is alright, but don't get any of the fancy precooked stuffs.

    Cottage cheese, just a dollop of it on top. Personally I prefer plain unsweetened yogurt, but that's just me. When we feed Winston bland diet, we don't add anything beyond the chicken and rice but we do it because his tummy gets upset on rare occasion.

    I may do this tomorrow. I think Miss Mabes would like some real food!

    @nikedunks00 I would do 3/4 cup chicken with 3/4 cup rice and a spoonful of the cottage cheese twice a day, if he seems hungry then maybe add a tiny more of the rice and chicken the next feeding. Sometimes my guys seem hungrier on the bland diet so I just add a tiny bit more and they are usually fine.
