Rated 1 out of 5 by BabyDino228 Way too many issues...going back to old brand
Like others I wanted a very good quality food for my APBT but this was not a winner by any means. I am a true BB buyer for the past 6 years with both cats and dogs and I thought this food would raise the stakes in quality. My first disappointment: the less than 1/4 inch sized kibble -- I was so afraid my poor baby would choke on it. It almost resembled the kibble size for my cats. The second disappointment: the too soft bowel movements she would have, and the frequency of them. I fed according to the package and it seemed she was constantly pooping and each tine it was very soft and latte colored (sorry for the deep description). Third disappoinment -- the foul odor of both the bowel movements and her horrendous flatulence. My poor daughter who puppy sat was being tortured at night by the release her foul gases while my puppy slept. I experienced my daughter's pain one night and I never want to go through that again. I have since switched back to BB and stool is normal in color and firm, no killer flatulence, and kibble is a typical size.

We have 2, 11 week old German Shepherd puppies, and I'm extremely particular about the food that they eat. I firmly believe that the health of adult dogs is determined by their care as puppies. What we feed them as puppies is the biggest part of this equation.
German Shepherd puppies are prone to having loose stools. Both of my babies have healthy stools, which are easy to clean from the yard. More importantly, they're developing at the rate that is healthy for German Shepherd puppies. Given the wrong food, large breed puppies will grow too fast, making them prone to structural problems later in life, like hip dysplasia. My babies are healthy, happy, and they love the food. I'm also very impressed by Fromm and the care that they put into making the food.
Although the food is a bit more expensive compared to brands found in grocery and big department stores, the savings in veterinary bills will more than offset the cost. In the end, the savings alone in vet bills makes the food less expensive than cheap foods.

by Dukesdad Great food for my Rottweiler
After trying two different premium large breed puppy foods including BB wilderness and Orijen, my boy Duke (Purebred Rottweiler) was still having inconsistent runny stools. I decided to try Fromm because it contains grains that are easily digested by dogs which I figured may have been the problem after reading countless reviews, articles, and blogs. I tried slowly transitioning him from the Orijen but his stools were still runny so I just eliminated the Orijen all together (I think the protein content in those grain free brands was just to high for him) and like magic his poops were consistent, firm, and easy to pick up in the yard. He is now 5 months old and a healthy lean 72 pounds. His coat is beautiful and his energy levels are great. My only gripe is considering its a food for large breeds, you would think the kibble would be a little bigger (its about the size of a green pea). Overall I would highly recommend this food to anyone whose large breed pup is having problems with runny stools on grain free diets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Star77 Great food for GSD puppy, highly recommended
I adapted GSD puppy ( 5 month old ) and she was around 15 pounds under weight, with stomach problem and very loose poop. I feed her first with Puppy Choice food from Costco ( like she was feeding in rescue) and slowly add new food like Nulo for puppies and tried add other expensive brands, but her poop has been worth. I started doing researches about food and founded good information and recommendations on Fromm for large breed puppy. Chewy has the best price for it and extremely fast and free shipping ( put order in Thursday before 12.00 PM and received food to my door next day before 12PM ( Friday). My girl has great result in 2 days already ( I start mix food 50/50 at the first day). Her poop is solid, no more problem with gas, her fur very shine and soft and she gains weight and now in right weight and size range for her age. Thank you so much Fromm and Chewy for amazing product , we are your clients now. ( sorry for English - it is not my native language).

Rated 5 out of 5 by CDC127 Good food for a growing puppy
I have an 8 week old puppy who is small but will be roughly 70 lbs full grown. I know the importance of using puppy food for puppies, as well as one that will help him grow at a rate that minimizes risk of future hip and bone issues. I spent a good bit of time researching, and the Fromm Gold Large Breed puppy food fit the bill for me. Puppy doesn't care about all the research - he has easily taken to this food, seems to enjoy eating it, and his digestive system hasn't been negatively affected. It's all good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Puppy Gold Holistic large breed puppy food
Have boxer puppy who, despite several changes in puppy food, still had frequent unformed stools and was not putting on weight. I happened upon this Gold large breed puppy food and ordered.
In less then two days, I saw a definite decrease in number of stools and for first time stools were formed. I had started directly with the Gold and am extremely happy with the results
Thank you for a product that works

Rated 5 out of 5 by GoldendoodleMom Winner!
We have a ten week old goldendoodle who is very picky! We started with Purina One (Which the breeder had him on) and mixed it with Taste of the Wild. He wouldn't eat. When we got him from the breeder he was the smallest because she said he was not eating much...only eating to satisfy. We then tried just Taste of the Wild and it seemed like he liked it at first but then the same thing happened. After trying another brand, we decided to try Fromm and he loves it! He eats so much and is finally gaining weight! Happy mom!!

I had been feeding my standard poodle Fromm's Heartland and switched to Gold Holistic. He had no intestinal issues with the change. The expeditious delivery was AMAZING.
