    Defaulttrying to decide between fromm or acana....advice?

    I currently feed totw high prairie roasted venison and bison. However, with the issues at the diamond plant I am thinking on changing. I realize it was voluntary recall but still looking into a different brand. I have looked into fromm large breed puppy gold or Adana large breed puppy. I am leaning more towards fromm. But I would like some feedback on these brands before I change over. Thank you for your thoughts and or suggestions.

    I feed Fromm (I rotate 4 grain free formulas) and I couldn't be happier with it.
    Top notch quality and customer service.
    I was also rotating TOTW in too...but I am rethinking that in light of the Diamond issues.

    The one brand of food I would feed without question is Fromm. I feed their canned food and their treats also.

    Thank you. Did you ever feed the puppy formula from Fromm? The puppy is not grain free and I have heard yes they need puppy....All life stages are fine for puppies so I am confused.

    I feed mine Acana and he does very well on it. You probably would be fine with either brand.

    No, I have never fed the puppy formula. I switched Java off puppy food and onto adult food at 5 months old.

    I agree with Dek you should be fine with either brand. I have mine on Acana & am extremely happy with it. They are both great quality foods.

    I hear Fromm gives dogs long lasting (proper) coat issues. I'm not worried about the Diamond issue. And I'll continue to feed it.

    I had fromm on my rotation, but took it off. Wasn't happy with how picky it made my 'eat anything' Labby. He'll eat anything else like its going out of style, but took his time with the Fromm...not sure why.
