Well it's been a while since I did an update on this thread and I think it's a good time to share the good news.

Mylo has been a good boy eating all his meals everyday.
What changed? His food.
As a last resort, I decided to change to a new food.
Very interesting thing happened, coincidence maybe?
I gave TOTW a shot since it's a very popular kibble on here. I chose to completely change proteins too, so I chose the Pacific Stream to stay away from the usual chicken infused kibble that I've always fed him.

My conclusion is that either something about Fromm was causing the mysterious issue or Mylo's tummy doesn't agree with chicken. What matters in the end is that there's nothing weird happening once a week anymore!

Here's a couple pics of Mylo boy, he's turning 2 this weekend! affraid can't wait to spoil him an extra bunch  bounce

Yay. It's a good food. I switched to it a few months ago. Glad he's doing better. Happy birthday, mylo.

That's great news Dave! Unfortunately with Fromm most of their flavors contain at least chicken fat, and my Sofie has issues with chicken in kibble, I have searched and searched and TOTW is the absolute only brand that has several flavors that do not include any chicken at all. Most brands may have 1 or 2 flavors, but I like to rotate proteins and TOTW offers me that. The only flavors I can not rotate is the wet lands (the chicken and duck flavor) and sadly for Miya it was her favorite the High Prairie (the bison one) because both have chicken in it, I know crazy with the Bison flavor but it does contain chicken meal as the third ingredient. Glad Mylo is doing better and great pics! Happy early Birthday Mylo Smile

That's interesting Renee, sometimes I've bouhgt Fromm for Sasha but neither Avalanche nor Sky eat it. Sky has her own IAMS but there are mornings where she looks at it and says "Nope!" but she'll eat Avalanches Dog Chow if she gets the chance. Damn dogs are gonna drive me nuts ( or more so )

You know Dave, it may just be coincidence - isn't it about time for Houston to stop spraying for mosquitoes?

Al, I was unaware of Fromm having so much chicken in it, and my sister contacted me on why her golden kept having skin issues, even tho she was feeding Fromm. So I looked at every line they carried and almost every product of Fromm has chicken of some sort in their lines. In fact nearly every manufacturer adds chicken into their lines, even for example a lamb based kibble will almost always have chicken fat. My assumption is that chicken fat is the cheapest source of fat that is needed in a kibble. The other issue with Fromm is that the majority of their products contain brewers yeast, which is also a skin allergy trigger, it produces yeast in skin sensitive dogs. So for my sisters golden Fromm had a double whammy. With taste of the Wild I can rotate between 3 flavors, which is a plus for me, not one other manufacturer thus far can I rotate between 3 flavors. Although TOTW Southwest canyon (the pork flavor) doesn't have chicken it is the only flavor in TOTW that contains brewers yeast, lol, so I can rotate with the lamb, venison, and the fish with no issues of chicken nor yeast, I could try the pork flavor, but at this time Sofie has no more issues, and prefer not to introduce excessive yeast into her diet, since most grain frees use potatoes in their formulas, which turns into a yeast, adding an additional yeast I fear will have her have issues again with her ears.

I will add, that Pro Pac, which is a subsidiary of Earthborn, and is their less expensive line also has 3 flavors I could rotate, and it is very inexpensive for a grain free, the only issue at the moment that I have with Pro pac, is that they do not include probiotics like higher end (TOTW, Earthborn, Acana, etc) grain frees have. TOTW and Propac are at the moment the only brands that has more than 2 proteins I could rotate between.
