The one question I am often asked as a Veterinary Technician is which food I feed my own dogs. My response? Fromm Four Star dog foods. It is so important, in my opinion, that you feed your dog a high-quality food with high-quality ingredients… afterall- you are what you eat. What you feed your dog has an effect over the complete health of your dog. The one piece of advice I can give any owner is to always checkout and know ALL of the ingredients of your pets’ food. If you are reading over the ingredients of the food and are unsure what something may be – CALL the dog food company… you should always know what is in your dog food! Make sure you also know exactly where the ingredients are coming from (stay away from ingredients from China!). I could keep babbling-on about picking a great dog food, but instead – lets move onto my review of this dog food company. Fromm Family Foods sent me these various products to try to see how my dogs and I (not that I tasted them!) like the food. They asked me to then complete a review for each of the samples sent. Please note that in NO WAY or FORM was I told by this company to write any of the following, this is completely all MY opinion!
Grain-Free Game Bird Recipe
My honest opinion of this recipe of dog food could not be any better. I am a fan of this formula for a variety of reasons. The dogs absolutely LOVE the taste of this particular formula – and I … don’t mind the smell! Some dog food smell very strong and are typically not something I want stinking out my house – this one? Smells like chicken! The kibble size of this formula is also a big plus, it makes the food a good option for everyone from a maltese – to a great dane. What is my favorite part about most of the Fromm’s foods? The ingredients! The ingredients are as stated:
“Ingredients: Duck, Duck Meal, Peas, Turkey, Russet Potatoes, Pea Protein, Dried Tomato Pomace, Pea Flour, Whole Dried Egg, Quail, Chicken Meal, Chicken Fat, Salmon Oil, Sweet Potatoes, Chicken, Pheasant, Wisconsin Cheese, Flaxseed, Carrots, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Apples, Celery, Parsley, Lettuce, Spinach, Chicken Cartilage, Potassium Chloride, Cranberries, Blueberries, Salt, Chicory Root Extract, Yucca Schidigera Extract, Alfalfa Sprouts, Sodium Selenite, Folic Acid, Taurine, Vitamins, Minerals, Probiotics”
Not only do these ingredients look good enough for me to eat, but this specific formula was rated a 5/5 stars on it’s dogfoodadvisor.com page which can be seen here: Fromm Four Star Nutritionals.
Would I recommend this product? YES! Absolutely.
Grain-Free Salmon Tunalini
This formula is by far my favorite out of all of the Fromms lines of food. Why, you ask? This is a fantastic formula for dogs which have allergies. Most dogs’ food allergies are due to beef or chicken – while this formula does have chicken liver and chicken fat present – the recipe does not seem to have any ill-effects on the allergies with my furry pair. While this formula does have a ‘fish’ odor – the benefits of the food for my dogs outweigh any smell at all. What do the dogs think? They beg for this one!
“Ingredients: Pacific Wild Salmon, Salmon Meal, Peas, Russet Potatoes, Pea Flour, Dried Tomato Pomace, Tuna, Whole Dried Egg, Sardine Meal, Anchovy Meal, Chicken Liver, Chicken Fat, Salmon Oil, Flaxseed, Wisconsin Cheese, Monocalcium Phosphate, Olive Oil, Carrots, Celery, Parsley, Lettuce, Tomatoes, Spinach, Zucchini, Eggplant, Chicken Cartilage, Potassium Chloride, Salt, Chicory Root Extract, Yucca Schidigera Extract, Sodium Selenite, Folic Acid, Taurine, Vitamins, Minerals, Probiotics“
Oven-Baked Parmesan Cheese (grain-free)
This is the favorite dog treat in our household! Who doesn’t love cheese? I am not kidding when I say that this recipe smells like delicious cheese when you open the bag – yum! I keep this dog treat in-bulk at my home and am completely confident in this treat. I have seen recalls on many different dog treat products – but I am 100% trusting with this Fromm treat… and other than making my own dog cookies, this is the only other brand of treat allowed in my house.
Let’s check out the ingredients, shall we?
“Ingredients: Wisconsin Parmesan Cheese, Pea Flour, Potato Flour, Tapioca, Whole Peas, Chicken Fat, Tomato Pomace, Cranberries, Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Apples, Split Peas, Green Beans, Green Bell Peppers, Celery, Beets, Oregano, Parsley, Lettuce, Watercress, Spinach”
What did the dogs think of this? Jameson wouldn’t stop licking his lips! He would do anything for these cookies!
This dog treat gets an A+ in our house.
Oven-Baked Lamb with Cranberry (grain-free)
Fantastic ingredients. Perfect sized treat. Dogs LOVE it! I used these for training with Jameson and they were easy to break up into smaller pieces to give. We have and will continue to buy this treat!
Ingredients? Well, don’t mind if we have a look:
“Ingredients: Lamb, Pea Flour, Potato Flour, Tapioca, Whole Peas, Chicken Fat, Tomato Pomace, Cranberries, Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Apples, Split Peas, Green Beans, Green Bell Peppers, Celery, Beets, Parsley, Lettuce, Watercress, Spinach“
What is my overall thought on the Fromm’s dog foods?
I do prefer the Fromm Four-Star foods – the ingredients are high-quality and all the foods are made in the USA. As a side note – Fromms does NOT outsource their ingredients – all ingredients are purchased in the USA. Fantastic, right? Most dog food companies can not say that all of their ingredients are purchased in the United States (where the regulations are more strict!).
I feed my dogs Fromm’s food – and have for the past three years. I highly recommend them (I even recommend their cat foods!) Are you not sure where to get your Fromm food? Go here to find it near you!
