Is Fromm a good brand?

Hello, I apologize if this has been asked before. I have a nearly 2 year old Golden who has been on Fromm food since I brought her home at 8 weeks. She has never had a shiny coat, and we also feed her sardines and Brewers Yeast regularly. I've also purchased oil based supplements that were supposed to help.

She also seems to have dry skin in general.

So is your opinion on Fromms good or bad? Her mother was fed California Natural(I think) and the breeder said nothing else about supplements so I don't know if she was on anything else. Her mother had a beautiful coat! Her father is a show champion- so I can't see why my pup can not have a nice coat.

Any advice on different food or supplements that may help her skin and coat?

Thank you!
Becky

Although I don't feed Fromm, it is a top food in my opinion. There are several different levels of Fromm including grain free. I'm not sure which one you are feeding, but I know several people on her feed Fromm.

I am feeding my puppy (now 6 months old) Fromm Large Breed Puppy food, and his coat is shiny and soft as well. The food is very good and Rusty enjoys it a lot. Once he is older, I will switch to the grain free foods Fromm has etc.

On a side note, I do feed Rusty apples and pears which are some of his favorite treats. I think apples help with a dog's coats if I remember right.

Fromm makes a solid food but the 4 Star Line is a rip-off. The grain free foods are loaded with powdered, pea protein and very expensive.

The Gold Line is a good solid food as is Fromm Classics.

Fromm is a great food in my opinion. But not all dogs do well on all foods. Some do better on Eukenuba, pro-plan or higher end or even lower end foods. The thing really is to find and feed what works best for your dog.Our new pup comes home on Eukenuba....not my first choice, not my last choice either, but I won't change it if she is doing well on it until I move her to adult food.

Thank you all for the replies, She was on the Gold formula until 4 months ago. We then switched to the 4star Salmon formula Salmon La Veg dog food - Fromm Family Foods

My Mother-in-law is coming for a visit, she grooms dogs and shows dobermans and poodles. I'll see what she says about the food and coat, I was just looking for advice from other Golden owners.

Thank you!
Becky

I posted before but I see it didn't show up. I found oxy med shampoo and cream rinse helped my goldens fur and skin. It is made by Tropiclean. Smells very good too. My vet looked at the ingredients and like what was in it. Pretty natural stuff. Allie was so itchy and it helped that too.

I feed Fromm classic adult to my wolfhound... the nice thing about fromm is that they control their own manufacturing facility and that is a big deal to me

I feed Fromm to both my guys - Riley gets the 4 Star line but not the grain free type and he has a great coat. Winton is eating the Large Breed Puppy Gold and doing really well on it.
