My puppy just barfed

Hello everyone,

I am new to this forum and love it due to all the info is that helping me with my pup. My baby is going on 4 months old and he is now having some allergy issues. We are not sure exactly where it is coming from but we are thinking it is the food. We took him to the vet and I think I may have to switch vets because she stated that I should keep him on the food that is most likely giving him allergies. Anyway, I decided to switch his food dispite what the vet advised and he threw up not even 5 minutes after he ate it. I got him FROMM. Has anyone tried Fromm for there dog? From what I hear, it was supposed to be the best but not so sure its good for my JJ.

Thanks for your help in advance!

Welcome to the forum. Congrats on your new puppy. I hope all is okay with the allergy issues soon. I feed my boys Fromms, but I transitioned them to it slowly. You should always transition over a week or so increasing portions of the new food gradually to get them used to it. I use the whitefish and potato formula since my boys tend to have allergies to chicken. My vet suggested going with a fish protein to see how they do on that. They have been on it for a month or two and doing great on it.

Mine have been getting Fromm's from the start. I have to agree though that any time you make a change it has to be slowly integrated over a period of time. None of mine have ever had a reaction to the Fromm's.

Thanks! I guess that was my biggest mistake. Since he was getting a rash from the old one I thought it wouldnt be a good idea to mix them. I did mix them this morning w/ a little bit of plain yogurt and he only ate about half of the bowl, which I had to feed by hand. He is just so picky. I am feeding him the surf and turf as that is what the pet shop owner recommended. I am hoping he does better for dinner.

I am hoping that Fromm does the trick as I feel so bad that he is constantly itchy and you can tell that it hurts him.

Thanks for the advice!

Welcome to the forum! Sorry to hear about your little guy having allergies and a tough time with food. There are some excellent threads in the health section here on allergies (especially by Jill). My dog has a sensitive stomach and had chronic diarrhea (no itching, though), so the vet eventually placed him on the Science Diet hypoallergenic formula. We've done much better on that, but I'm not sure if that would help itching. It is free of many things that cause allergies, though. I'm not sure why your first vet advised you to stay on the food giving him a rash, but maybe a second opinion is a good idea if it doesn't improve. Good luck.
