Fromm Family Dog food

I am thinking about ordering some Fromm food for Gucci. As of the last few weeks, she no longer *likes* the Pro plan! She won't eat it, and has been very whiny....probably because she's hungry!

She is eating some wet Cesar for dinner, but I also want her to eat dry food too.

I found some reasonable prices on the 5 lb bags of Fromm. Has anyone else tried the Fromm dry? Did the dogs like it? Which flavor?

http://www.dogfooddirect.com/FrommFo...OrderChart.htm

I know Tom feeds it to his dogs. Tom, do you feed the dry or wet? or both?

Thanks,
Kara

Kara, i know of a few breeders on this site (Kimberly & Tom, i think) that just love their food. I cannot find it here. I guess i could order it. But i would like to sample it 1st.
But to address you other concern. Both Tripp & Dreamer will LOVE a food for awhile then all of a sudden quit eating it. I have tried to say 'you will eat that or nothing!' but after about 2-3 days i just cant do it any longer and i give in. I read that is a common issue with them. So i always carry a few different varieties of food(they HATE dry). I have to say that Tripp loves the food i have been feeding him for a couple months but Dreamer wont touch it<sigh>.
I sure wich i could find something they love & will ALWAYS love!! I feel your pain.

Tripp, Jax, & Dreamer

Yes! I'm miffed. I hate to hear her whining because she is hungry, but I can't feed her the Cesar she likes all the time either, because it lacks any nutritional value.

I think $15 is a reasonable price for a 5 lb bag, maybe I should get all 4 and just keep switching them so she never bores of the food? lol

Thanks!
Kara

Kara,

I remember reading somewhere on here that some people add a bit of warm or hot water to the dry food, stir it up it makes a kind of gravy, and their dog loves it.

I even sprinkled a little grated cheese on it and she ate the cheese and NOT the food!

Thank you

Right now Dreamer eats Innova Evo or Natures Variety prairie canned & Tripp eats Natures Variety prairie canned & raw. Tripp loves it(this week ) but Dreamer has an iron will as she can be stubborn. i have also tried to add water to Canidae dry & Innova Evo dry. Neither one would touch it. The breeder fed them Canidae dry so i bought this huge bag but they wont touch it!
Yes, i have tried the cheese trick-didnt work!! Ate the cheese only.

Tripp, Jax, & Dreamer

I had a terrible time changing Rileyís food his stomach is so sensitive. In an older thread Kimberly was talking about Fromm food so I decided to give it a try, I change him over very slowly but he LOVES it. When I use to put his old food down he would just walk away then go back and eat about an hour later I didnít think to much about it I figured well heís eating when heís hungry. Now as soon as I say who wants breakfast both my boys go running to the kitchen and stand by the closed waiting for me to get there food and they both eat right away. Another thing I noticed while I was changing over Riley would just eat the Fromm, leave the old food then go to Montís bowl & push him out of the way so he could get his Fromm LOL the little bugger.

Thank you again Kimberly & Tom, I love the fact that my boys are enjoying their meals and Riley did not get sick once.

Leeann, Riley, Monte & Rumor
