Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Puppy food advice?   Wed Jul 17, 2013 7:18 pm

I have been feeding our 4 month old puppy Fromm large breed puppy food for 8 weeks. She absolutely loves it and it makes her skin and coat look and feel amazing. Unfortunately I think it gives her diarrhea. I started giving her 2t of pumpkin each day which helped for about a week but now she's back to diarrhea. She has had all her regular dewormings and had a fecal test 1 1/2 weeks ago which came back normal. This leads me to believe it is the food. I was thinking of switching her to Wellness or Blue Buffalo. Any suggestions???

It'll all depend on what works for her. If you are going to switch foods, you may want to try a grain free food, and make the transition slow. Take about 2 to 3 weeks especially if she does have a sensitive tummy. I'm not sure if what you're currently feeding her does have grain, but look at some grain free foods to try. There are a few out there that are affordable. You'll have to see what's available to you.

If you really like the Fromm line, check out Fromm 4 Star. It's their grain free line... But I'm not positive they have a puppy formula. Just an option Smile

We recently switched her to a grain free formula from Blackwood. She seems to be doing great on it.

my pup has a pretty sensitive stomach, and i use fromm gold puppy formula. she loves it, coat looks and feels great. i actually switched to this because a lot of the other good foods for her had more protein then she could handle with out upsetting her stomach.
