    Default Help- Should I get small or large Fromm puppy formula?!?

    Ok, so I am going to switch Lockjaw and Penny to Fromm Gold puppy formula. I love the brand that they are currently on, but their Only grain free puppy formula is chicken and I really think that is playing a big part in Penny's tear stains. I decided to make a switch and see how it goes. Only thing- Lockjaw is 39 lbs and Penny is 32 (parents were 65 and 42 lbs) I don't want to buy 2 bags (small and large breed) so would it be ok to just keep them on the small formula for now?

    Personally, I think it would be just fine. Most size formulas are just marketing ploys. The difference may only be in the size of the bits. You are feeding a good food, I don't think it makes a difference. Just my opinion. It is the quality of the food that counts, as far as I am concerned.

    7 months. I went ahead and got a bag of small breed. Will I eventually have to get them their own bags?

    Hi Corine, I agree with the above suggestions, the only thing is that the Fromms Puppy Gold is also Chicken based, so if you think he's sensitive to chicken, or you think that this is contributing to their tear stains, you may want to start them on a difderent Fromms adult formula with a different protein like Fromms Beef Frittata, or Lamb and Lentil, or one of the other flavours. All the Fromms kibble are all stages so can be fed to a puppy as well, and all their flavours are interchangeable, so don't require a slow transition to switch flavours.

    Sorry- I got the Prairie Gold Puppy- grain free. That one is a red meat recipe. Lol- I was worried a second. I had to go back and check. Hopefully i will see a difference. But they will probably start adult kibble after this bag is gone.

    I really loved the food I had them on, but all of their recipes (adult and puppy) had a chicken base. Only one adult formula was without. That was a fish base, but I want to save that for if/ when other allergies may pop up.

    Thank you everyone for the input!!

    Im actually switching Brutus to Fromm. He's 6 months old and I think I'm going to try the Salmon Tunalni. He's been on Orjien for about two months but his skin has gotten so dry. I've been giving him fish oil and recently gave him an oatmeal bath. His coat has gotten softer since the fish oil, but his skin is still flaky and he bites his paws. Is switching to Fromm a good idea?

    I absolutely love Fromm! Izzy loves her Beef Frittata. I purchase it online and get free delivery and pay a decent price for the large bag.

    I'm so glad I read this, I was thinking about switching to Orjien after trying the freeze dried boar treats but I think I'll try the fromms beef frittata
