My husband just bought a $60 bag of the dry Instinct with Dehydrated Raw but she eats the dehydrated pieces out and leaves the kibble. Shes on our heels everytime we go to the kitchen likes shes hungry. I just dont want her to eat just because shes starving and theres nothing else to chow on. I want her to like it.

I may try the Fromm plus the Stella & Chewy. Does the S&C come in the Raw frozen?
Gus looooves the Fromm + S&C rehydrated with water. We only use S&C dehydrated raw because live in a small apartment with a tiny freezer and have no room in it for his food. Also, I'm a forgetful person so I'd probably neglect to thaw the frozen raw the night before. :blush:

But yes, S&C does come in frozen raw. You should try it! Or maybe even the dehydrated raw, your pup might like it! :thumbsup:

Cody's Mom

Well Cody is not the best eater. Good thing Pets Mart takes back food that has been opened. I feed him a chicken tender every evening (cooked on bake in toaster oven). He is not interested in eating earlier or more frequently. I finally got him to eat chicken Puppy Bil Jack mixed with his chicken so now he will eat that dog food. If I give him chicken skin, chicken strip treats, or buffalo hamburger he gets diarrhea. The vet is okay with what I'm feeding him.
My daughter feeds her maltese raw like her other dog who is 15. Primo nuggets I think. But I do not want to do that cause when traveling it is difficult.:SM Rocks!:

Has anyone tried the Cesar wet food in the little tray? I have been feeding Daisy Fromm Puppy Food and she will be 1 year old this month so I think she should be ready to move up. She had 4 teeth removed recently and didnt want to eat her dry food so I tried the Cesar and she loved it. I just noticed no one recommended it in this post and wondered why?

I'm getting my pup soon. I think the breeder said she will be on blue buffalo.

I read in another thread that chicken isn't good. Does this mean an actually cooked chicken that humans eat or does it mean chicken in the pet food kibble?

Also is there a rule of thumb on how much you should feed your little pup on a daily basis?

The ingredients in Cesar are not very high quality. Dogs love it because it's like junk food - tastes good but isn't all that great for you. I wouldn't recommend it.

If Fromm worked for you, go back to that. They make a canned and it is a very high quality food.

Lucy Lu eats Merricks puppy real chicken, brown rice and green pea recipe. She loves it. I give her a small piece of carrot stick for a little treat.

Lucky loves FreshPet. He has been on it a few weeks. Lots of energy, poop good. Mad in US of mostly (97%) US and Canadian ingredients - nothing from China. Lots of plant ingredients, good meats.

Walter may I ask how much protein in freshpet ? and which one you are giving Lucky ?

Thank You

Anna

Hi

To those of you looking for coupons for higher quality dog foods, I have had success with writing or calling the companies and ask for coupons.

Hi
For those of you that have used any of the Fromm canned is there a kind that is a pate rather than chunky?

Thanks

I am feeding the new puppy Fromm grain free dry kibble and she likes it. It has 29% protein and am fine with that for the 4 month old puppy. However my 15 month old is fed Fromm 4 star with grain that has 25% protein but she much prefers the puppies' 29% protein wild game grain free food. Is it too much protein for her to switch her to the same Fromm grain free 29% protein food that she and the young puppy both prefer? Concerned bc I thought we are supposed to keep full-grown maltese at 25-26% protein? Would love some feedback on if it is safe to put both 15 month old and 4 mo old on Fromm 4 star grain free, 29%-30% protein dry kibble???

I have an extremely picky non-eater. After trying practically every food out there with absolutely no success, I ended up contacting a diplomat of ACVN who is a researcher/professor at UC Davis who recommended I try Vital, sometimes we eat, sometimes we don't! Very frustrating.

We do eat, without a problem, Grandma Lucy Blueberry cookies! Yum!
