Wow I hope the food is okay I just recommended it to someone on here. I would say if the dogs are not eating it, take my advice, they know something is different. And you said the color is different? Then something is wrong. I had experience with this situation before, not this brand but another. When my dog didn’t eat it and it was a different color he got diarrhea when he did finally eat it. Try another flavor, and if they threw up or don’t want it change the brand until you find out what’s up if you can.
By the way, you can try pet fresh, it is in the refrigerator at the pet store and or Natures’ Instinct dry food. I heard good things about Instinct dry food. I just read all these posts about Fromm, I can’t believe it. But it sounds like everyone is having the same issue. So just based upon that I would change dog foods period.
My family and I believe our dog had gotten sick and passed away all of a sudden on the 15th of this month. We believe it was the dog food brand Fromm. She had out of no where gotten sick the following week. Prior to her getting sick she had started not eating the food out of no where. So we kept going back to the pet store changing the flavor. Not the brand. She had begun throwing that brand up. So we started cooking her food and she would eat. Then we would once again ease her back to her regular dog food again. And she would refuse to eat again. Then out of no where she became really sick. We took her to an animal hospital. They did an ex ray and said it was nothing serious. Just belly a little swollen and her throat was a little swollen. So they prescribe her some medicine. She never got better. We took her back two times. And was told give meds time to work. The third time we took her back she died in our arms. This all happened within 1 week. She was always a very active dog. Then this evening we were looking on line for answers. And found articles of other dog owners who had same thing happen to their dogs that were on same brand that died out of no where. My family and I are in total shock. And disbelief. And hurt. To say the least. The pain is unbearable. And would really like an answer.
I agree…my dog never had an issue. I used to get her spring naturals but it was discontinued. I bought her the Fromm surf and turf ( and yes I did mix it) and since then she has never been the same. She started with horrible diarrhea. Took her in got her medicine and it cleared it up. Once off the medication she got diarrhea again. It gets so bad she will have it numerous times a day. After thousands spent at the vet she still isnt right. Her calcium had dropped so low she was having leg cramps and seizures. I have her on special vet diet food and she can NEVER eat anything other than that which also doesn’t help all the time. I had complained to them numerous times and they never once responded or even cared . I hope someone slaps a lawsuit on them
I am going nuts right now, this is a shame for all these people with Fromm. I just ordered a bag of Fromm. I used to use it and stopped for a while b/c I rotate brands, but now I don’t think I should use it. Anyone else having trouble with this food?
I had called pet stores that sell it and ask them if they had any trouble with it, and they said no it is a big seller and no one returned any food or complained about it. But I believe what you guys are saying as well. Darn, I don’t know what to buy anymore, I guess you take a chance no matter what.
Joanne I hope my post doesn’t start the bashing of grain free and DCM. I’ve been feeding Stella Chewy’s kibble before the controversy started. They have a HUGE following and I and don’t think they are on the list brands possibly implicated in cases of DCM. I have Chihuahuas so breed not prone . Stella’s has limited ingredient food now. Turkey, duck etc. Please go to their website and take a look. My dogs do very well with their kibble and a topper of some of their freeze dried. Some of their kibble has pieces of freeze dried added also.
It’s only sold at pet supply stores. They have a clean bowl club where they email $3.00 coupons. Ask ANY questions on their f/b page and you get a VERY quick response. Can’t hurt to try . Store always takes bag back if it doesn’t agree with them. No money wasted.
Fromm changed their formulas slightly, so Sheri if your dogs did not want to eat it, it’s the formula, the surf and turf now has chicken in it. Check your bag and see if you had the new one.
And Patricia thank you for your reply, I would feed Stella’s but my dog has trouble with the raw freeze dry foods they are too rich for him, but thank you anyway.
Just to clarify Joanne the Stella’s kibble comes comes with JUST the kibble also. No freeze dried pieces.
Have been feeding my dogs Fromm Gold Adult dog food for over 20 years and have never had an issue over three different dogs (husky mix, Newfoundland, Golden Retriever). Lots of speculation on this thread (“I *believe* it may be from the Fromm food.”) The only way to tell is to get the food tested. Don’t speculate. Fromm has had very very few recalls and has been in business since the early 1900s. Small, US-based company that sources its own ingredients – one of the reasons I chose Fromm in the first place. Good luck to everyone!
