    Default FIRST TIME PUPPY OWNER QUESTION

    Hey gang.

    I am a first time bulldog owner. We brought Biscuit (son named) home 2 days ago. All seems well from the Vet. The breeder was great. He is 14 weeks old and 21.8 lbs. He is a big boy.

    I am wondering about a really good food for him. I having been reading a lot about Fromms. Would anyone offer a newbie a little support? I would be very grateful.

    I'm a big fan of Fromm -- I used the puppy line in the link bag for my older bully Rukus and then switched him to the grain free four star line, but started by younger bully Regina directly on the four star line and I think she did even better on that than the Rukus did on the puppy line. I've never fed them any other brand. I supplement their food with "toppers", sometimes a little ground eve or hard boiled egg or cottage cheese, keeps them interested.

    Thank you so much. I am starting the switch today to it. I hope he likes it. I have a Frenchie that is 11 and never had to many concerns with diet. I think I am overly worried about the bulldog just because of all the horror stories. This info helps me.

    Also, thank you so much for the quick reply. It means a lot to me.

    I also feed Fromm. My guys are not pups, but I think they have all stages, not sure though. It is a great food. One of my guys has allergies to a bunch of things so I feed the duck and rabbit protien, I think it's called Hasen Duckenpheffer.

    All my dogs eat Taste of the Wild-Pacific Salmon. So far it's good!

    When mine were puppies they ate FROMM, they are on TOTW - pine forest (the one with the deer on the front-lol) recipe. They did well on both. TOTW is just more affordable for me with 2 eb's.
