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?
    That's interesting that you said he is no longer picky Ftse is very picky will go a day or two without eating I have recently changed him to a grain free but its not Fromm wish it was but we can't get that here in Australia but since Ftse has been on the grain free he has been eating it, the problem here is we don't have such a. If selection of good feeds and Royal Canine is one of the best we have here 😒

    My hubby isn't so bad about things, we both cringe w vet bills but he gets a bully is a def investment. He does say im kooky n always asks me why do I feel the need to spend more on Fromm food, or buy grain free treats, specialty treats, always replacing bones, using fruits n veggies w her food, putting acv in water, using special things to keep her clean ...wait...is he on to something? LOL he just shakes his head n moves along...

It's cheaper than Petflow's prices too!

    @Marine91
    Very cool! Ours is a bit more but when you factor everything in it winds up about $3 less a bag over the course of a year so we will just continue to get it from them. Plus we love the people that work there and if we haven't been in for awhile they have even called us to make sure us and Harlea are ok.

    The bottom line is a few extra bucks in prevention saves a whole lotta money and heartache in the long run. We signed up for this and I love every single second of it. I would give a kidney for my baby so money means nothing for his happiness and health. As Bully's are a special bred, so are the owners!!

    When I used to feed Fromm, we bought them from Global Pet Foods and they had a program where you'll get the 11th bag free. Maybe it's still going on?

    My bf doesn't ask how much I spend on the boys' food. Mainly because he knows if he does, then he'll have to research and go to the store himself, which he completely avoids!

    Yup Global still has that promotion. We're on bag # 2 lol I think the problem comes from I think of Tubbs as my son and David thinks of Tubbs as our dog. Psssshhhh as if Tubby is just a dog.

    That was the problem. Tubby would pick and choose when he wanted to eat. He wasn't really growing or filling out. Then I did the switch and he hoovers up every meal. He went through a huge growth spurt and is really filling out. I was happy I made the switch just not happy that I made the mistake of sending his dad to the store.

    I wish they sold Fromm here everyone seems to do good on that, we only have Royal Canine, Hills prescription diet, Yukanuba, Black Hawke, Call of the wild, and a grain free Applaws from the UK so i dont why we cant get them from the USA and of course the supermarket range. I'll have to ask the Aussies what they are feeding their's but Ftse did not like Royal canine would smell it and walk away and Vets say they are not fussy they will eat anything I have never found this to be true.

    When I got Norm he was eating Beneful...I was just researching dog foods and thought I would do Newmans Own....Then I found EBN and did a bunch more research...signed up for Petflow...now we feed Fromm Beed Fritatta. If I get any push back on food cost, I just remind him how farty Norm was on the other stuff and who he likes to sit by on the couch and he's all better!

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.
    I could have typed this exact post..... the price threw us at first, but the results with Banks are more than worth the price.
