5 Reasons to Buy Fromm’s Pet Foods

| 1 Comment

We regularly research the many healthy pet food options to find the best foods for dogs and cats (at good prices to boot!). One brand that consistently stands out is Fromm’s pet food. We aren’t paid to endorse Fromm’s. It’s a brand we sell because we believe pet owners should be able to affordably feed their pets real food and not “big brand” fillers with misleading ingredient labels.

If you’re reading this, you may have already learned of the questionable ingredients found inside the dog and cat foods manufactured by “big name” companies. Congratulations, you’ve taken the first big step towards improving your pet’s health! If you haven’t taken a close look at Fromm’s, here are five good reasons to do so.

1) Quality ingredients

All of Fromm’s pet foods have quality proteins like chicken meal as one of the first ingredients.  You’ll never see ingredients like chicken-by product or meat meal; those ingredients are misleading and non-specific for a reason. Fromm’s has never had a recall, and by the way, pets love it!

2) No fillers

Fromm’s has quality grains like pearled barley, and grains are not the main ingredient. There are a lot of brands that use “grains” that are moderately nutritional at best. Often it’s just an empty filler (e.g. brewer’s rice or corn meal).

3) A family-owned business, just like us

Fromm’s doesn’t use slick advertising campaigns with false statements. We appreciate the clear labeling. With the big brands, you’re often paying for the billions of dollars they spend in advertising. Unfortunately, that means the quality of the pet food is lowered so they can offer a cheap product and afford pricey commercials. These companies want you to consider them a “trusted” brand while your pet gets reduced nutrition.

4) They manufacture their own pet food.

This is huge! Many pet food companies outsource the manufacturing process and just slap their name on the bag.  This leads to less accountability and poor quality control. We don’t mean to scare you, but good luck finding out what’s really in that bag of food when it changes hands again and again.

5)  Options for any budget

You can buy Fromm’s pet food from us for under $1.00 a pound!  No dog food comes close to the quality of Fromm’s in this price range.

Pet Food Comparison

We got out our calculators (literally!) and compared a lot of dog food. Here’s a snapshot of how Fromm’s  compares to other brands. We were shocked–in a good way,–to see just how much more of a value you can get with Fromm’s foods.

Fromm’s Adult Classic:  Rated 3.5 stars on Dog Food Advisor

Ingredients Include: Chicken, Chicken Meal (great protein), Pearled Barley (great grain, low gluten and flavorful) , Menhaden Fish Meal (excellent source of protein and fatty acids), and Chicory Root Extract (source of dietary fiber and prebiotic that promotes healthy bacteria growth in the gut)

You can get this for under $1.00 per pound when you join Abracadabra’s free loyalty program. Petco and Petsmart sell brands like Pedigree (1 Star), Iams (2 Stars), Kibbles n’ Bits (1 Star), and Purina Beneful (1 Star) in this price range.  These foods contain poor quality ingredients such as by-products, non-specific protein sources (e.g. animal fat and animal digest), low quality grains (corn gluten meal, brewer’s rice), and chemicals (food coloring, phosporic acid, and propylene glycol, the active ingredient in anti-freeze).

Great news! There’s no need to sacrifice your dogs health when you can get Fromm’s for the same price, or cheaper!

Fromm’s Adult Gold:  Rated 4 Stars

Ingredients Include: All the quality ingredients of Adult Classic plus Duck, Lamb, Oatmeal (great fiber promotes colon health), Alphalpha Meal (source of chlorophyll), Carrots, Lettuce, and Celery.

You can get this for as low as $1.18 a pound with our loyalty program.  Foods like Purina Pro Plan (2 Stars), Iams Healthy Naturals (2.5 Stars), and Eukanuba Premium Performance (2 Stars) cost $1.20-$1.55 per pound at stores like Petco and Petsmart.  These foods contain poor protein sources like by-products, and animal digest. They also have cheap grains like corn meal, brewer’s rice, and corn gluten meal.  These grains have no nutritional value and often cause allergic reactions in dogs due to mold and grain mites.

Fromm’s Four Star Nationals Grain Free:  Rated 4.5-5 Stars

The Surf n Turf contains:  Salmon, Duck Meal, Duck, Chicken Fat, Salmon Meal, Chicken, Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Apples, Green Beans, Cranberries, Blueberries, Chicory Root Extract, Alfalfa Sprouts

This food is for those that want nothing but the best for their pet. The ingredients were so impressive, we couldn’t even find a comparison in its price range, which we offer at the best price. It’s as low as $2.18 per pound with our free rewards program.

Moral of the story: no matter what your budget, you can treat your pet to quality food.  At Abracadabra, every pet that walks through that door is a part of our family, and we want to see them happy and healthy!  Ask us questions in the comments about your pet or stop in to talk to one of our trained pet professionals.
