    Food recommendation other than Fromm?

    In August I switched Jax to Fromm Pork & Peas and Beef Frittata and he was constantly going after his paws scratching and chewing on them so I switched him to Fromm Chicken A La Veg which he has been on for a little over a month. Over the last few days, he has been going at his paws again and his stool has been very loose. I know a lot of people here feed their Frenchies Fromm but I'm wondering if there are other brands that anyone is using that they can recommend. There are so many different brands of food that it makes my dizzy looking at them all.

    I am beginning to feed Gidget Blue (Wilderness?) I can't remember now. She has got something going on that has been breaking her out in hives (something causing little bumps at varying degrees of severity). When I got home last night she was covered. Have allergy testing scheduled to be done. We may be switching again...

    I have used Nutri Source Lamb & Rice for about 5 years now with awesome results.
    I have heard good things about Blue Buffalo also

    Re: Food recommendation other than Fromm?

    Margie's breeder/vet had her on Natural Balance LID (limited ingredient diet) Sweet Potato and Whitefish. She really liked it and seemed like a high quality good food. We switched for two reasons, Fromm was a better price for what seemed like a better quality, and sometimes she had a greasy smell of fish on her coat. Ha I really couldn't stand the smell sometimes that would come from her after eating right away.

    Re: Food recommendation other than Fromm?

    Babette was constantly chewing at her paws, had really red itchy ears, started to develop a bad odor, and was itching herself to the point of bleeding due to the rash she was breaking out with. My mother in law also has a dog who's highly allergic to just about everything. She's the one who turned me onto California Naturals. So far we've tried both the kangaroo and lamb mix and within a month she's almost 100% better! I know it can be somewhat hard to find, but it might be worth a try. It worked for me when nothing else did.

    The vet's office said to try a limited ingredient food with salmon or kangaroo, as they are less likely to be allergic to that and I had no idea where to find kangaroo! As of right now, I have him on Wellness Simple Limited Ingredient Salmon and Potato. His coat though seems to be a bit greasy and he is starting to shed again. I will look into the California Naturals and see if I can find it.

    We couldn't find it at the big pet food chain stores but had better luck at the mom and pop places. I'm sure you can get it online. Best of luck.
