Fromm – Duck and Sweet Potato

Lexi has proven to be a very finicky eater. We were put on Royal Canin Hypoallergenic PD dog food by the vet but, it turned out to not be a good fit for us. I know that she infinitely prefers canned/wet dog food but, unfortunately I’m a budget and can’t afford food that’s going to cost me $2+ a can. Our current tactic is putting some lukewarm water in the kibble and so far that seems to be key. We’re also switching Lexi over to a high quality and affordable dog food that is gentle on her stomach. One thing that I love about this dog food is that the food itself is small. Lexi has no problem eating the smaller pieces whereas the Royal Canin was a bit more tiring for her.

Fromm Duck and Sweet Potato is made in the USA in small batches so you are able to receive the freshest and best dog kibble. Some of the ingredients featured are fresh duck, sweet potatoes, cranberries, carrots, green beans, and other fresh produce. They also give you a list of all ingredients with a dietary reason why it was added. I’m pretty sure that my dog is eating better than me now! One ingredient that I thought was interesting was the Yucca Schidigera Extract which they claim helps with “reducing stool and urine odors” among other things. Well, maybe it works on someone else’s dog because mine still has stinky poo. đŸ™‚

Blue Buffalo Basics Limited Ingredient Formula Turkey and Potato Dry Puppy


At 8 weeks old, Lexi was very ill with a virus and her stomach balance changed. She was on a prescription diet dog food for about a month while we tried to transitioned her back to her previous puppy food. We found out later on that she developed an allergy to chicken. The closest food that I found that best resembled her prescription dog food was this turkey and potato limited ingredient formula for puppies. Transitioning her to this food was a breeze and we didn’t have any bathroom issues.

Blue Buffalo basics is a high quality puppy food with just the right amount of protein for my dog. She briefly had a gas issue during the first month of eating it but, I’m not too sure if that was an issue with the food or if it was part of her stomach development. She LOVES the taste of this food and doesn’t mind in the least when we use it for training.

We have no issues now with her sensitive stomach and I trust Blue Buffalo Basics to take care of my dog’s dietary needs.
