I am still feeding Fromm. I like the Salmon A La Veg, but since I order in bulk, I am also going to get some of the Chicken A La Veg since it made the Whole Dog Journal's list of recommended foods.

The Whole Dog Journal does a very intensive selection process for foods.
Quote:
WDJ Dry Dog Food Selection Criteria:

1.) We look for foods that contain a lot of high-quality animal proteins
2.) We reject any food containing meat by-products or poultry by-products
3.) We reject foods containg fat or protein not identified by species
4.) We look for the use of whole grains & vegetables
5.) We eliminate all foods with artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives
6.) We eliminate all foods with added sweetners

Further Attributes:

1.) A date-code or production code is easy to find, read, and interpret
2.) More than just the required nuturients (fat, protein, fiber, moisture) listed on a product
label's "guaranteed analysis" (GA)
3.) The caloric content of the food listed on the label
4.) All of the food maker's contact information listed on its product labels (and their
product literature & Web sites)
5.) A statement that a food (or one of its close "family members") has passed an AAFCO feeding
trial
6.) Certified Organic Ingredients
7.) Admire those manufacturers that have pursued and obtained noncompulsory manufacturing
certifications.
You are supposed to subscribe to WDJ to get the complete list, but the 2006 & 2007 lists were copied by someone else to another message forum here (scroll to the bottom for the 2007 list). Disclaimer: If you want to ensure accuracy, you would probably want to see the official copy.

After switching several brands of kibble, I am using Frimm's Chicken a la Veg with Little Cesar or some other form of protein. I also add a bit of Missing Link to it. They seem to like this combination. I am happy to report that Kodi has become a food hound.

We've been feeding our small dogs Solid Gold's Just Wee Bits. They're doing really well on it. No canned or wet, just dry. Their snacks are homemade, except for Solid Gold Tiny Tots.

I still feed Benji mixture of Natural Balance Potato and Duck and Natural Balance Potato and Fish kibble + homemade meat balls of ground beef and minced vegetables. I sprinkle Missing Link and Salmon oil or olive oil on his food once a day.

Best, Poornima

I am still feeding Innova ( meets all the requirements) plus I add a small amount of cooked lean ground meat mixed with blended potato an carrots for flavor. Sally wasn't overly keen on the kibble but now gulps it down when mixed with the ground beef veggie mix.

I am going to look into Fromm's. Still deciding on when to switch her on the new food. She will be six months old.
