Fromm – Dog Food Made Well
The Fromm pet food company has been making dog food for 165 years. The company is based in Mequon, Wisconsin. The company was founded in the United States by German immigrants and has grown over time to become an internationally recognized producer of dog foods.
Lots of Great Varieties
Fromm does know dogs. The variety of dog foods available is based on the age, weight, and size of your dog. Special foods for pregnant dogs, obese dogs, overweight dogs, and sick dogs are available. The idea seems to be that the company can make a product for any dog that is specialized enough to fit the animal’s particular needs.
Fromm produces over 100 different dog foods. Varieties are specialized by ingredients to produce a health benefit for a particular dog. The foods are designed to address the health needs of any aged dog, the prevention of specific canine illnesses, and the damage that age does to animals. Varieties are also coordinated with the level of activity of the animal to produce an optimum weight.
The products are dry dog food in a kibble and canned wet food. The shape and size of the kibble are in line with the size of the dog. The manufacturer has made an effort to easily identify each product by producing a different shape of kibble for each product. The idea is to make it easy for the owner of multiple dogs to feed the right food to each dog.
The product line is segregated into Classic, Four Star, and Gold categories. The Gold variety offers a large selection of different flavors that range from surf and turf to game. The idea is to give your dog a variety of food choices that helps to keep the dog eating well. The Gold variety is designed for finicky eaters.
Each Fromm dog food is labeled for a specific type of dog. Large dogs, puppies, and older dogs are a few examples. The idea is to make selection of the right food your simpler and easier.
Gluten free varieties are available. Independent analysis has shown that Fromm’s grain free products are absolutely grain free. The varieties of meats used allow the owner to pick a meat that they prefer or that their dog prefers. Plant only foods are also available.
