I heart Fromm everything.

One of the oldest reputable dog food companies out there, and their reputation still goes strong. Can't beat that!

Btw thanks to this thread, today at work I was totally feeling up a bag of the LB Adult trying to gauge kibble size. Didn't work so well because of how freaking vacuum sealed the bag was.

LOL. Well I was right our local store did not have large breed - but they did have Gold Adult! I got a bag of duck & sweet potato, since I had a $5 off coupon, figured I'd buy the more expensive one. But still not bad - it was around $13 for a 5lb bag. He didn't eat it very enthusiastically, unfortunately, but he did eat it. But we're going to get thru the bag and he'll come around I am sure and I'll see how he does with the one bag. *crosses fingers* I switched him cold turkey, as he never usually has problems, but he did have a bit of gas tonight (nothing terrible, but very unusual for him)... but that could've been from something else, too. I saw him eating poop earlier outside and had to stop him. lol.

Hope it works out, and that his gas clears up lol. Silly poop eating dogs.

I'm starting to wonder if maybe Juno has a duck problem, and not a Fromm problem. Because we've only done the surf & turf and gamebird formulas so far, and they are both mostly duck based. And she used to be on Natural Balance duck & potato and didn't do fantastic on that either. Maybe beef is our answer! I hope.

Pretty soft stool this AM which is unusual for him :/ he usually switches cold turkey fine. And the first day he was eating Acana Lamb and Apple, he had a nice hard solid BM from the get-go. But I seem to remember this the last time we tried Fromm, I often wonder if he's got issues w/ barley and flaxseed. He doesn't have issues with oats or oatmeal it seems. So I dunno, I realize it's only been one poo but MAN, I want so bad for Fromm to work LOL.

He just has always done the best on Acana (both grainfree and grain) soooo.... Guess I should stick with it. I guess another option, since he seems to do best on a bit more of limited ingredient types is Go! Sensitivity + Shine Duck. But I may give Acana Chicken and Burbank Potato a try since we hadn't tried that flavor yet.

I don't know if I should stick through the bag of Fromm and see what happens or just stick with what I know works.

Here is the reason according to Fromm:

All of our kibble is average to small size. There are two reasons for this; one being the method of our cooking at a lower temperature and slower pace to help avoid any damage to essential proteins or amino acids which can be caused in an intense heat process. The second reason is that a smaller kibble is better digestion for the dog. Their system is more efficiently able to break it down and process it.

Harleigh is on Fromm Duck and Sweet Potato (the first grain inclusive food I've fed since she was like 1 y/o, lol) and also Fromm Surf and Turf.

She loves them both, but that isn't surprising because she loves everything. She is maintaining her weight really good and goes bonkers every time I put the food in her bowl. We are definitely adding both to our rotation (along with Back to Basics, which is her absolute FAVE).

I do find the size difference between the two kibbles funny though. The Surf and Turf kibble looks JUST like the stuff I used to feed my friend's Emu
