    Default Did the switch

    Well i Just switched over from Taste of the wild to Fromm, I mixed his old with his new but he hasn't shown any interest in it yet, that could be due to the excitement that I'm home from work Hopefully he likes it though!! I bought a 12 pound bag of the beef fritta and vegs and got a 4 pound bag of the pork and peas free! ( i wont complain on that) I just worry a little bit because the food pieces are smaller then the TOTW dog food, and since chesty like to inhale his food and not chew i'm worried about him choking or something. I've tried a slow feeder but he can't get any food out and i've tried to put a tennis ball in his food but he just steals the ball out. he's such a little turd!

    He should be OK with the smaller pieces of food, none of mime have a problem with it, and several of mine suck it up pretty fast.

    I had the same situation with Chumley when I switched to Fromms. He didn't seem to care for the smaller pieces at first. For awhile I felt like I had the only EB that had reactions to Fromms ...both the beef and the pork and peas caused diarrhea, increased shedding and itching . I was ready to give up but tried the salmon tunalini at the suggestion of @blueberrysmom and it's he's been doing great on it!
    "He's such a little turd" ha ha I love it!

    @Chumley oh no that stinks, I hope chesty doesn't have any issues with Fromm Dog food because if he does we will Probably try Acana or go back to Natural Balance (LID) only because chesty hates fish anything he will not eat and with the Natural Balance I can pick from 3 or 4 different flavors for him.

    We still put a bit of water on Harleas food and it has slowed her down a bit. We also have a smaller stainless steel bowl that we put upside down in her larger bowl ant that has worked the best for us to slow her down.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    I actually switched from Natural Balance too which I really didn't have a problem with. It was a the vets suggestion during a time he was having allergy problems that I now know had nothing to do with the food. Please don't judge Fromms on my experience because most of the people on here have had great success with the beef and the pork and peas! I'm glad I tried the flavor change before giving up on it becAuse he inhales his dinner now and I have noticed no problems at all so far!

    @Marine91 that is a brilliant idea!!! I would of never of thought of that! thanks for the idea


    @Chumley oh I won't judge Fromm on your experience...It just made me think a little more because chesty has allergies out the wazoo /: so hopefully this works for him and if not then it's probably back to Natural Balance

    I recently discovered a way to slow down Rook from inhaling his food... don't know if it would work for others... Rook LOVES bananas, and because they are soft and a little bit... sticky, i guess, he eats them slower. I usually share a banana with him in the mornings. One morning I was in a hurry, so I just sliced up his portion and mixed it in with his kibble. Dramatically slowed down how quickly he ate his breakfast, so now he gets his banana in his food every morning.

    Rocco has been on beef frittata for about a month and a half and has had no issues. Also, I bought the omega stainless slow feed ball and that has worked wonders in slowing him down. I had the same issues with the slow feed bowl where he couldn't get to the food. He's also a little turd lol
