    My two dogs ( a Tennessee Treeing Brindle and a Pitbull Terrier) have been on every good to great to the best food around. I am concerned with what they consume, as natural "wild dogs" live much longer than domesticated dogs do. This is believed partly due to diet. After briefly considering a BARF (biologically appropriate raw foods) diet, I decided to try Fromm. My dogs love it, and they have built up an extremely soft and shiny coat, and are completely toned and muscular. In fact, my vet always asks me what I feed them and says to keep doing it because she can never find a single problem. I run them as well, but Fromm foods definietly made the difference.

    I know how exhausting it can be to find a food for picky eaters. I have been threw tons of dog food tring to find the "right one" that my dogs enjoyed as well as it being good for them. That all changed when I tried Fromm. The dog food has a great smell to it and it does not smell like dog food. It contains the right amount of protein for my dogs as well as a variety of fruits and vegetables. It even contains probiotics that help aid in the digestion of their food. They eat less and their waste is much more manageable to clean up. Hands down, this one is the best by far for my dogs. Fromm has such a wide variety to try and I have tried all of the 7 "four star" recipes. They seem to enjoy the pork, duck, surf & turf and beef. I would recommend this to anyone.

    I have a 10 year old Aussie mix with allergies and an 8 month old Rhodesian mix that we recently adopted. I had my Aussie on Acana, but it has too much protein for her (verified by recent senior bloodwork) and also, with two dogs it's just too expensive. I tried Fromm Gold Adult & Puppy on the advice of the owner of my pet supply store and it has been terrific. It is much lower priced than Acana, but is still high quality. Both dogs are doing well on their respective brands. Both have shiny coats and lots of energy. I like that it's an American produced product as well. I recommend it highly.

    5 stars My dog is very picky with his food. He's a 4-year-old yellow lab. The first time I gave it to him he ate the whole serving. I buy it from my local feed store. I think it's a great price really. My only complaint is that this food gives him terrible gas. I thought maybe it was just the switch in food at first. Needless to say we've gone through almost a whole bag. But, I'll keep feeding it to him. His skin and coat are beautiful!.

    I feed my English Bulldog FROMM GRAIN-FREE SURF & TURF dog food. He loves this food. Since he has gluten and grain allergies, this dog food is perfect for him, and he has never looked better. His coat and skin are really in great shape, and his stool is firm. I am very glad I have found this dog food, and will be keeping my Bulldog on this food for a long time to come. This food has the Probiotics and digestive enzymes dogs need in their diets. I highly recommend FROMM FAMILY DOG FOODS.

    I brought home two Beagle/Spaniel mixed dogs last year who had been suffering through Science Diet. I visited them for one month 2-3 times/week and found that they never ate their food until they were very hungry. I brought home different types of dog food that had a protein listed as the first ingredient (which means it's the main ingredient). They hated everything (and I tried 7 different companies). A dog trainer at the store recommended Fromm and they eat it like it's their business. Even the pickiest of the two LOVES it and the mention of the word, "dinner," they get very excited. One dog was overweight when I brought him home, his brother was underweight. On Fromm and with lots of excercise, both are very healthy with muscular bodies and very shiny fur.

    i have a 16wk old blue nose pitbull terrier that has been eating Fromm Puppy Gold. She LOVES the taste of it, eats it all and even picks up her bowl when it is empty...carries it over to me, and begs for more. I decided to feed her Fromm after reading several reviews. her stool is solid, and has been since the day we got her. i've owned puppies in the past and i know sometimes it takes a few brands of dog foods before finding the right fit for their bellies. Fromm seemed to suit her appetite right away...... the ONLY COMPLAINT that i have is that EVERYTIME i feed her for the first time from a new, sealed bag, she gets a rash on her belly. it lasts for a day or 2 and then goes away. she doesnt nips at it or scratch...its as if she has no clue its there until i'm chasing her around the house with some goldbond cream to lather her with. i asked my vet what this could be and she said it could be a coincidence or an allergy. if it were an allergy, the rash would be there ALL of the time an...

    I really like their dry dog foods. I have a dachshund who's incredibly picky. I tried so many different kibbles it was unreal! Finally we gave this a try and he likes it. We rotate between the chicken veg and the pork and applesauce formulas as he is not too keen on the other flavours. I love that we finally found a healthy food he enjoys! The only complaint I have is that this food seems to leave his coat a bit lackluster so the vet reccommended giving him fish oil capsules. His coat seems to be fine with the addition of the extra fish oil. Definitely give this food a try if you are frustrated with a picky eater!

    I've had my puppy on Fromm Four Star Pork and Applesauce since she was 10 weeks old. This formula has a bit more fat/higher calories than the rest -- so good for my growing large breed golden! She totally LOVES Fromm food and the ingredients are top notch. Lots of healthy fruits and veggies to boot and the added probiotics are nice! It's also great to buy my puppy food from a company who has been around a long time, has some real integrity, and is family-owned and operated right here in the USA! We look forward to adding some canned Fromm food to her diet once our local natural pet store receives it. Will also try rotating once in a while with the Salmon and Chicken protein four star foods as well. Fromm was so nice, they sent me a couple new customer coupons and they even have a frequent buyer program! Great company.

    I really wish I could get this food. I would love to try the Fromm surf and turf and try their canned food for my cats!!!! It isnt a cheap food but a bichon I groom had terrible skin problems. Hot spots every where to the point he was painful to the touch. She started to feed him this food and no more skin problems.

    We have a new puppy who has been extremely picky. We tried many different commercial brands before finally finding Fromm Family. He LOVES it and gobbled it all up!! I won't go into the convoluted way we found Fromm Family but chose them partly because they do not use animal experimentation to develop their foods. I WAS, however, concerned about their product being made in China...I know some have said to "get over it" but being a very anti-foreign product kind of gal, I just couldn't. So, knowing that the Internet is the best place to find rumors and the worst place to find good factual information, I decided to email the company to ask them if they actually do make ANY of their products in China. Here was their response: "Thank you for your email and inquiry to Fromm Family Foods. It is not true. All of our recipes are made in the United States. Our dry kibble recipes are made here at our own fourth generation family run company in Wisconsin. The same way they have alway... Read more

    I have a germ. shrt. pointer and a l.h. dachshund and they both do great on fromm dry food. My pointer is extremely picky and before i fed her fromm i tried feeding her several top quality pet foods, but she would eat them for a couple of days to a week and then start refusing to eat. With the fromm i rotate bags between the duck, salmon, and chicken and she has never refused a meal yet. I also love that i can rotate from one to the other with no problems. Both of their coats are so shiny and they have smaller bowel movements-always a plus-:) My pointer is a high energy dog and my vet told me recently that she is an athlete and in great shape, i attribute this to the fromm food and a good exercise regimen. My doxie never had a problem being picky-like most of his breed he'll eat almost anything-LOL. If you have any questions or concerns about the canned food see fromm's website-I know the can food USE TO BE made in China, but the company has changed that and it's being made in the ... Read more

    Fromm foods are made in the United States and always have been. Their CANS were once made in China, then shipped and the food was canned here in the U.S. This has since been changed. Their cannery in China has been closed and they have relocated and are making the cans here in the United States. Their food always has been made in the United States. Everyone, please get your facts straight, okay?

    I must say I am surprised at the wide range of reactions on this food. While I do agree on not liking that the canned portion is coming from out of the country. The dry food is great my dogs just love it, but as with anything dog food is not a one size fits all. I work at a feed store in Wisconsin and this is one of our best sellers. It is one of the better foods out on the market, while it will not be the best for every dog I would highly recommend it for anyone. For those of us who actually care about what we feed our pets know that the label (Full nutrition for every dog is a lie) look at Ol Roy aka: death on a plate. We need to know what our breads nutritional needs are and work from there, even then there is no one food that does it all. But in my eyes Fromms gold line is it for me and my kids

    Don't like the idea that it is a Product of China, Developed in the USA. I want a healthy dog food that is made and is the product of the USA. My 2 dogs passed away from dog food that was on the recall list. One was Dick Van Patten's Natural Balance. I did get a can of Fromm Beef Entree from my groomer and my dogs didn't like it. I looked at the label and was horrified to see anything associated with China on my dog food can. Thank God they walked away from it.

    Personally I love this brand! the dogs love it, I like the ingredients, they have a shinny coat and good skin (my one dog has a skin condition), good energy level, firm stools, and less stools as well. The brand is all life stages, for all dogs...which is great since I own 4 very different dogs, and they all do well on this brand. its even good for the little guy, since the kibbles are small enough for our 7lb shih tzu to chew as well. They're are several flavors (different protein sources, and they have a different kibble shape) and when the dogs get board of eating one, I switch them to a different one and they have no problem switching within the brand. I use the Fromm-four star label, but I only use the dry. I've never used the canned, as the only canned food I use is Tripett. I have used theyre gravy and didn't see a single problem with it.

    My 65lb Am/Staff has been on Fromm since he came home from the shelter at 3mos old. At his vet visit at 3 years old I was told he is an absolute perfect specimen. Very Muscular and seems younger than he is. being mostly a white half naked dog he almost definitely should have shown some skin issues by this age so "keep doing what your doing". Honestly he is not exercised other than occasional walks. I don't do anything additional other than feed him kibble and water. So I attribute his condition to his food. The one time I gave him samples of I believe it was INOVa large he developed a yeast infection. I have used Fromm Gold Adult, Duck, Chicken, Salmon. I did not like they had there cans out in China just because the point of it. But since my dog is in excellent health and maintains an excellent muscular body there was no reason to change. My Neighbors Yorkie now on fromm after we sat and read his prescription food from vet. This poor pup may have been poisoned from his orig... Read more

    We have 2 boxer pups one 7months and other 15 weeks one has allergies, wanted to only feed one food. Fromm has been excellent for my pup with allergies. She was on Candidae, Innova, and Merrick from the Breeder who believes in switching up foods. With me Wellness, Cal Nat Chicken/Rice, Fromm Salmon, Fromm Duck and Sweet Pot, Addiction Kangaroo and Apples. With all those foods finally figured out what she's allergic to so the Fromm Duck and Sweet Pot has been top notch! Wish they would remove the chicken cartilage however, top allergy specialist said to not have any chicken in her food, but she's scratching and shaking her head less then ever almost not at all on Duck and Sweet Pot. Have to feed her almost 4 cups a day however at 7 months due to little protein and fat. But she's healthy and loves her food. The little baby pup is also eating the Fromm and couldn't be healthier. He doesn't have allergies however. ========================UPDATE===================== ======= Have to... Read more

    I have a 2.1/2 year old giant Schnauzer who has been on the Puppy Gold since put on whole food and he looks magnifcant. The Breeder located in Wisconsin still feeds her Champion Giants the Puppy Gold and my dog's sire recently won his 5th Title (Best Working Giant Schnauzer Title @ age 8) People see my dog and remark how great he looks & especially marvel at his deep black coat. You must be doing something right! I would not feed any other dog food to my Giant. Thanks Terry Milwaukee,WI

    We switched to Fromm 4 star dog food after extensive research. Our 4 month old english sheepdog wasn't tolerating well Solid Gold's Wolf Cub food, but once we switched him over to Fromm, his digestion improved as well as his poop. I think that it helps to have the probiotics in the food (which wasn't the case with Solid Gold). Last month, we gave him Duck and Sweet Potato, which he loved, and this month he is on the Salmon and Vegetables, which is great as well. I like that they make the food in their own facility up in Wisconsin, and that it has a lot of healthy ingredients. I analyzed the food and scored it a 110, A+, based on the following dog food scoring system: How to grade your dog’s food: (Some brands are done at the very bottom) Start with a grade of 100: 1) For every listing of “by-product”, subtract 10 points. 2) For every non-specific animal source (”meat” or “poultry”, meat, meal or fat) reference, subtract 10 points. 3) If the food contains BHA, BHT, or ethoxyqu...

    We have a 3 year old English Bulldog who is a rather picky eater. He would barely touch California Natural, Prairie, Wellness, but has really loved the Fromm Four-Star Gourmet meals. We do them in a rotation and he has maintained a healthy weight, his coat looks great, and he gets as excited for mealtime as every bulldog should! Our 6 month old Frenchie is extremely allergic to grains and has also done really well eating the grain-free surf & turf. He finally has consistently solid stool and is a lot more active. I would really recommend this to anyone!

    The company is not using China made cans anymoe although they are still ridding the cans that were made in China. The kibble is made here in the US. There are so many things bought from China. There are also alot of Ameircans that visit or reside in China. Do they not eat whne they are there or tehy bring there own utensils LOL. The company is going forward and made a good decision to have the cans made here. I recommend this diet as its comprobaleto Wellness but costs less as Wellness had massive price increases in Oct. because components of there food are from over seas although they will say it is made in the USA.

    Stay away from this food! It is one of the worst foods you can buy. It provides almost no nutritional value. My dog hated it too. He had diarrhea after eating this food. He hardly touched it. It made his coat dry. It is too fatty for older dogs.

    FYI- I spoke with the company a couple days ago and they informed me that they have found a facility here in the United States to manufacturer their canned foods! I thought this was good news and I should pass it along- I will now want to try the canned as well as my dogs love the dry- and they don't usually like kibble. They told me they should be announcing in the next couple of months and re-launching the cans.

    I agree with maltipoolover!  We love FROMM 4-star varieties.  I have used all of them, but my 3 dogs like the chicken, whitefish, and surf & turf the best.  They like the salmon okay, but the duck is their least favorite.  I also mix it with The Honest Kitchen Force.  Great food, too!  It is a dehydrated raw, grain-free food.

    I grew up living next to the Fromm dog food factory in the 1970's and can still smell the stench of roasting horse meat. I used to visit the horses on "death row" in the paddock behind the factory. They were not well cared for as they awaited their slaughter.

    I am a breeder of collies and after a long search for the best food I could get and a lot of reading etc, I settled on the Fromm Brand of Dog and Cat foods. I have had good success with it for the past 6 months and promote it where ever I can. I like the ingredients, all wholesome. I was cooking their food myself but I don't have to with this food on the market, it contains all the ingredients that I was using. Nancy Weaver, email [email protected].

    I dont understand why everyone is making such a big deal about things being used from China. Americans feel it is ok to purchse cars from overseas (asian manufacturers for one, and germany!!) buy gasoline from companies that purchase their oils from Sauidi Arabia, and buy fast food from restaurant chains that promote animal abuse, and buy candy from the Mars company (who, by the way tests on animals- look it up- sadly, they are also the manufacturer of pedigree dog foods), everyone is complaining about chinese meat and cans used in dog food? It makes no sense to me- but anyway my dogs love the food,i have had no problems with it at all, and I will continue to purchase it.

    I have 3 dogs ranging in age from 4 months to 13 years. I wanted a food I could feed to all of them, and so I started them all on the Fromm 4 star Chicken & Veg. My Cavaliers showed an amazing improvement in their coats after one week. My old girl, however, has come down with a food allergy. It is either something in this food OR in the Avoderm vitamin supplement I am putting on top of it. I am experimenting to see which one is causing the allergy. Overall, I think the food is excellent and they really like it. However, after reading more info I think I am going to switch to Orijen and go back to feeding all three of them three different foods. Yuck.

    Originally seemed to be GREAT ingredients until I got to the sweet potatoes, potatoes and potato filler.  WAY TOO many starches for dogs ~ let alone people!  Two meat MEAL sources ~ which is great and two meats (70% water).  People I have talked to that use this food say they have no issues.

    We feed Fromm Gold Puppy to our dachshund puppies with good success. We are a Wisconsin breeder, and I was happy to be using a product made in Wisconsin. This is no longer the case. Their canned food is made in China. It makes me wonder what other cost cutting measures the company will come up with. I no longer trust the obtuse management of a company that would believe people would want to buy a premium dog food from China. I wouldn't even expect OLD ROY to be made in China. What's next? Dry dog food from Sri Lanka?

    I can not support this company anymore.. There is only one reason that anyone does business with China and that is profit. When a company puts profit over the well being of pets, it is time to call it quits.. Adios Fromms I to will be switching to Orijen..

    I was a big fan of Fromm until I found out it was made in china. I switched from Ekanuba for that reason. I am very dissappointed. I don't mind paying the extra money for quality dog food. I have now switched my puppies to Orijen dog food. It is the best dog food on the market. It is made in Canada with the highest quality ingredients. It is high in protein and has no grain. If you want your dog to have the best of the best dog food' I highly suggest you check it out.

    I have used Fromm in the past, particularly their cat food which seemed like a good value for the price (I was getting it deeply discounted.) However, their decision to produce their canned food in China is mind-boggling. Even without the recent melamine and cynauric acid contamination issues, the quality control for both human food and animal feed is atrocious. They've had major incidents of *human* poisoning from tainted processed food and from contaminated medicines. In addition, China openly raises dogs are openly raised to be eaten. With the above in mind, how meaningful is Fromm's claims their food is made in China because they wanted it made in a human-grade canning facility? In China, that could mean a place that cans products with dog meat as a major ingredient.

    Fromm a wonderful food with wholesome ingredients.  ALL of their dry dog food is made here in the United States at their own plant in Mequon, Wisconsin.  I know their canned food is made in China, but it is made in a human food facility, not a pet facility with no regulation like Merrick or Evangers.  I feel safe and use it for my four-legged kid with great success.

    Their 4 star formula brand foods are a  good quality food.TAKE NOTE:  >>> Their Adult Gold formula is not so good (Use of low quality grains and controversial fillers. )  3 stars only.This review is for their 4 star line up of foods:The first and second ingredients in the food are named meat products.There are further meat meal ingredients 9th and 15th on the ingredient list. The carbohydrate content of the food comes from sweet potatoes and grains meaning that the food is relatively low in grain content.The grains used are rice, barley and oatmeal, all of which are good quality low-allergenic grains that provide additional carbohydrates and protein to the food.The use of whole eggs and a range of fruits and vegetables in the food, as well as a good range of probiotics.Tomato pomace and oat hulls are fillers, but these are fortunately a very small proportion of the food.Fromms Four Star formulas are semi-allergy foods with low grain content.
