    Default I bet you guys are tired of these kinds of posts, but....

    I need help. I want Chaos to be as healthy and have as much of a problem free life as possible. So he has about a half bag of his chicken soup food left. I am definately changing him, my question is this. I know Fromm puppy gold is the best, but my problem is I cannot get it anywhere locally and it scares me to have to wait for it to be shipped.(I'm a weirdo, I know) The only good rated food I can get locally is Merrick, but I noticed it was the last of the top 4. Is Merrick a decent food and does anyone else feed it?I will order if I have too, I just am errie about it. Heck, I guess I just need to order the Fromm, but it would be soooo convienient to be able to pick it up locally. But then again, when it comes to my bully, his health and well being overwrites convienience

    I dont recall having seen Merrick food discussed here so I cant help there. We don't, but several members do order their food online successfully but I know what you mean..... it is nice to have it available locally like we do.... of course, it is MADE about 25 miles from us too.. lol

    I do not know anything about the Merrick food, but I did want to add a positive thought about ordering Fromm's from Petflow. My husband was kind of put off by having to order food and possibly running out and so forth. But, we gave it a try and we are so happy that we did. The first order arrived very quickly and since then, we have set up for the automatic delivery - it really is fantastic. Worth a try!!!

    The big question here is..........does Chaos have allergy problems........ergo........does he have ear infections or wrinkle infections on his snout? If so.......then you need to find a grain free formula.......and not worry about it's ranking. Duke uses Nature's Receipe and has had great improvement
    (almost allergy free) with infections. Just spend some time reading labels at your supplier store. The best for you may not be the best for every one else.
    Also you may save a few bucks. Always buy a small bag to try it out. Then if it isn't any good you can pitch it and not be out so much money.

    he doesnt have any known allergies as of yet. and he hasnt had any ear or wrinkle infections either. he's a healthy lil pup. I'm new at this, we always fed beneful or puppy chow to my boston before we found this site and actually read about the dog foods, just a little overwhelming

    When it comes to Fromm their 4 star nutritional formulas are better than their gold formulas, just an FYI. I PERSONALLY believe that nutrition is the key to any ones or animals health. Because EB's are prone to a variety of health problems I take Samson's diet very seriously. So if I were you I would just order Fromm from petflow, one of the 4 star nutritional formulas like the surf & turf, salmon a la veg, beef frittata, etc. I didn't want to have to order Samson's food either but it was the only way to get him the food he needs without a huge hassle so now I order from petflow and happy I made that choice. The other thing is the higher the rating the less you have to feed. So while Fromm is more expensive than Natural Balance, Avoderm, etc you have to feed much less of the Fromm than you do the others so in the end it is WAY worth it. Just my personal opinion Oh and please always feel free to ask any question, no one gets tired of helping!

    I used to order from petflow and it usually came in a day or 2 from them shipping it. I think I went to the fromm site and found a local pet store that carries it and it's a tiny bit cheaper.

    well i was looking to make sure and it says its a 3 star which i thought it was a 4 star food hmmmmm... i did just find out about 2 weeks ago that tractor supply carries taste of the wild, not sure if your close to one of those, i have been pondering if i should switch or just stay on avoderm since hes doing good. we only feed 2 cups a day and it lasts about a month.

    dont worry i stay confused with all this food stuff

    I'm the same way I didn't order because I want to
    have it somewhere close to buy it. Lucky that I can
    buy Taste of the Wild close. We have several places
    that sell high end dog food. But no Fromm.

    From what I have read Merrick isn't bad. There
    are just some better options out there. Choosing
    a dog food is SO stressful!! Its like I care more about
    what my dog eats than what I eat. OK I do care about
    what my dog eats more than what I eat.

    Good luck on your search. Hope you figure it out soon
    or Chaos will starve.
