    Oh yes the vet stroke. I know that one well lol David always tries to run out of the vet with Tubbs before they tally up the bill. But thankfully Tubby is too social and has to say bye to everyone first. I'm waiting for David to go for his physical an the doctor tell him he has high blood pressure lmao

    We always fed our other dogs Purina Pro Plan and believe it or not they did very well on it and we're beautiful all the way around. I knew nothing of dog food until I came here and buying dog off online was unheard of to me. Mike was not sold on spending that kind of money for Fromm (and it was a sticker shock even for me). He was pretty dead set against it (even Earthborn) because all his Pit Bulls, Ace, Orion & Nitro, did very well on Pro Plan on so should Wilson. I convinced him to try Wellness and Blue Buffalo at first. I gradually moved Wilson, and Jack, to Earthborn, and when Emma came she was on Fromm puppy and I ordered from Petflow and that was that. He knew how much Earthborn was so I had no problem convincing him to go to Fromm since it was better and only a few $$ more. He wasn't happy either that is was a 26lb bag.

    But as I told him once, I don't tell you what you can spend on your trucks and accessories for them, don't tell me what I can spend on dog food. That line works like a charm for me every time I need it. I just swap it around.

He now eats every meal and isn't picky. He looks great and he feels great lol

    Well Fromm cost $102 with tax and its 4lbs less then what's in the Royal Canin.
    Whoop de dooo! I have tried every analogy to make him understand but he just doesn't get it

    I am seriously starting to lose my patience with this man. I'm not saying were rich or anything but we certainly are not struggling and can afford the Fromm.

    Does anyone else's spouse or significant other give them such grieve for trying to do what's best for their bully?
    What size bag of fromm? I get the 26lb bag of beef frittata for $65 and that's the biggest they carry at the particular store I go to

    It was the 26lb bag. I think we get over charged here in Canada. Plus they only sell Fromm at one chain of pet stores here and they're over priced to begin with

    We fretted over it at first but after seeing the results of Fromm's its second nature now. Plus it helps that where we get our food they always give us a Fromm's coupon for either $3 to $10 off the big bag or one for a free 4lb bag when you buy a 12lb or larger bag. Then we factor in that at the place we buy food every 11th bag of Fromm's we buy is free regardless of size so everything is a wash for us. With tax it is roughly $72 for the 26lb bag by me.

    Be sure to check with the people where you get yours from if it isn't petflow as the place we buy from takes all the Fromm's coupons off the bags and keeps them behind the counter because people were coming in and taking all of them off the bags.

    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Good point Todd. By chance I found out there's a new pet store, independently owned, literally around the corner from me. They're a non-profit store and all profits go to their canine cancer foundation. They sell only the good stuff and although they don't carry Fromm, she orders it for me. It's cheaper than Petflow's prices too!
