just curious, has anyone tried Fromm on their pooches? i am interested to find out how your dog did on Fromm Dry Food. I like their ingredients in the food, i noticed they go heavy on the duck.
I used to feed my dog decent food, before Evo and Orijen and Horizon Legacy, and he liked the previous food better, but I still only feed him the Orijen, Evo, Legacy rotation, and even though he likes the other foods better. I know I'm feeding him the best kibble/canned foods there is, even though he might not like them the best, he's gonna eat them or he'd go hungry.I feed my one of my Italian greyhounds Fromm Surf and Turf, he loves it. I had him on Orijen but he wasn't crazy about it.
Naaa you can feed it, it actually looks like a good food. If the list only had chicken I'd say no, but the chicken meal helped out. But For my guy, I wouldn't feed it, cause of the pearled barley, pomace, and a couple others. Also the protein to me is a bit low at 24%.So are you implying I shouldnt be feeding this food? If you take a look at the foods rating it is rated a 5 star food on both dogfoodadvisor & dogfoodanaylsis
I understand, I too have a little dog at 19 pounds and he's old, I'm just thankful he can take high protein.I have 3 chihuahuas thta range in age from 1 year to 10 years old so I prefer a lower protein food Ive tried higher protein diets before with my older chi & he just does not do well on them at all... I used to feed them WEllness but then they changed their formulas & then I switched to Innova who is now being taken over by P & G so Im now trying out Fromm it is the highest quality food that I can get in my town right now.
Whether we all like to admit it or not, dog foods, even the best of 'em, are marketed at people. Dogs don't read the labels and frankly just don't care ;-)
I read this and thought the same exact thing.... but then I thought about it, and even the very best of the best have veggies in them, this one just puts it in the name, marketing to the customer. Some people want the most meat, and no veggies, others really believe that an omnivore diet is best and admire the veggie content. To each their own, I think it's actually a pretty decent food, though the omnivore marketing isn't doing anything for me.
It's not grain free, so people entirely on the grain free bandwagon won't recommend it, but I honestly don't think it looks too bad at all. I mean, sure, COULD be a tiny bit better, but it's just as good as the Innova formulas, and from a company still reliable. If I had a large breed pup, I'd *probably* prefer Orijen LBP, but this food would be a contender for sure.Just found out that the place where I will be getting the Orijen LBP also carries Fromm. They can get me the Large Breed Puppy kibble from Fromm. What do you think of this formula? Doesn't look too bad to me....
Canines are canines are canines, they are all carnivores, and therefore have pretty much the same nutritional needs in that respect. (only excaption may be large breed puppies and calcium content, though I'm still somewhat on the fence about that one, even)We've tried higher protein but it isn't necessary for a chihuahua and can make them jittery (moreso than they already are...imagine that!...and aggressive...no thanks).
If you had X amount of energy and Y amount of potential to expend it, what do you do when you've got 50% of that energy left over? The same is true of dogs. I should have clarified that the high protein didn't cause the agression but gave the extra energy that seemed to give aggression something to stem from. Rather than just a little snarl, they'd go for a nip, rather than a nip, a scuffle, etc. because they just were't expending the energy the same way a larger dog was.Canines are canines are canines, they are all carnivores, and therefore have pretty much the same nutritional needs in that respect.

And the "high protein food causes aggression" bit is a total myth, so I wouldn't worry about that too much at all. Protein does NOT make dogs of any breed or size aggressive.
I've never heard the "high protein makes dogs jittery" line, but I also have a hard time wrapping my head around that one.
