I even skipped meals, locked her in the bathroom w it, ect and she wouldn't go near it. I think the texture threw her off bc she won't go near raw either. Good luck!!

We use the Ziwipeak food as treats, and she loves it, so I think that she'll be easy to switch. But we'll see! She's not picky at all though normally. I've been very happy with Fromm and I've always sung it's praises, but we definitely need to change flavors or foods or something. I just don't understand why she's suddenly having trouble with it.

I am starting today mixing Ike's buffalo blue puppy with Fromm giving him half and half, I want to try him on it . Since my Pug didn't make out to well with it, but in time I am going to try her on it again. I have to go 20 miles to a petco to get the blue, there is a specialty dog and cat store 1 mile from me, that carries all the top brands of food, except the Blue, sure would save me money in gas is I can change my other dogs over.

I didn't realize till today you could give puppies Fromm, I had looked for it in puppy food, but because I this post I found out you can give it to puppies also. Thanks I love this little guy so much.

If you do try ziwipeak, I would suggest adding it in slowly if she has a sensitive tummy. We do a few raw boney meals per week for Odie and I know that a lot of other people do too.

We haven't had many issues with her having a sensitive tummy. I don't think she's ever even had loose stools. We've been very lucky.

Hi! Hope he does well on the Fromm, my Lola has really bad food and environmental allergies, it's the only food she does the best on! I wouldn't recommend giving 1/2 and 1/2 the first day. I would start 25% new and 75% old for 3-4 days followed by 50/50 for 3-4 days and then 75/25 for 3-4 days. Transitioning slowly can prevent upset stomach and diarrhea.

Zorana, thank you, I took your suggestion and started 25/75 ,he is now on 50/50 Blue puppy and Fromm, and doing really well. I will keep him on this till the blue puppy gets almost gone, then he will be 100 % Fromm.
