Fromm is a great food. My guys had the best coats on the Duck/Sweet potato--probably the best ever. But, my golden is allergic to *something* in it and I had to discontinue it.

I she spayed? I see a lot of fuzziness in the picture. The coat change that come with the removal of those hormones can be significant. My one spayed girl has a coat quite different from the rest of my crew despite being fed the same diet and getting Omega supplements etc. It is just the way her coat is now because of the spay.

Fromm is a good food with a good reputation, but if it isn't doing for your dog what you think it should do, perhaps it is time for a change. Every dog is different, just like every person. If your dog doesn't have the coat you think she should, and you have eliminated things like parasites, then maybe you need to change things up and try something new, even within the Fromm line.

Yes, she is spayed. Good point, I'll have to think about it more!

I liked Fromm also. The only reason I'm switching is cuz my pup seems to have yeasty ears and the vet wants to try a new food. THe company is all made in the USA. I can't find any other reputable company that is made in the USA (yet)

Dr. Tim's, and he even discloses the source of the vitamins. Fromm will not which tells me the vitamis are not from the US.

I plan on giving Dr. Tim's a try once Rusy is older. He will have 2 or 3 different dry foods for his diet.

Mine are doing great on FROMM- Just changed them to Surf n'Turf Grain Free and all 4 Happy dance at feeding time. Cozy and Lucy are even skinnying out a little. Hopefully soon they will no longer be Porky Yorkies.

I think Genetics plays a giant part in coat quality.

I do what I like and like what I do. Yorkies- Cozy (4/1/06), Roxy & Zoey (2/11/08), Lucy (4/6/09); Golden- Buddy (4/13/09- Rescued 12/11) Maine Coon cats- Mika (1998) and Tallulah (2000)
