Review: Fromm Family Cat Foods

Fromm Family Foods really is a family-owned pet food company.  They have been involved in the pet care business since 1904.  According to their website in the 1930’s, they introduced the first canine distemper vaccine and in 1949 introduced the idea of premium pet food to the public.  Clearly, Fromm Family Foods is dedicated to bettering the welfare of dogs and cats.

Fromm’s uses several programs to “ensure the quality and safety” of their products.  Aspects of production, such as records, sanitation, pest control, maintenance, ingredients, storage, labeling, traceability, employee training, quality control, sampling and lab analysis are all areas that concern them.  (

There is no question that cat food products produced by Fromm’s is high-quality and meticulously-made.

INGRED.FROMM.CAT.SALM.VEGSalmon A la Veg is a mixture of Pacific Ocean wild salmon with rice, broccoli, cauliflower and blueberries.  This food is free of corn and doesn’t contain by-products.  The company only uses healthy fats and natural flavorings.  The ingredients list begins with salmon, salmon meal, barley and white rice.  I could have done without the white rice, but all the remaining ingredients are good choices for Fluffy.




Next up in the Fromm foods for cats is canned Salmon & Tuna Pate.  This product is grain-free and full of healthy ingredients.  It’s made of minced salmon and tuna in natural salmon broth.   The ingredients list is a testament to great cat food.  It begins with salmon broth, followed by wild salmon, tuna and ocean fish, and chicken liver.  That’s a lot of protein, and cats will love it!


When you read the ingredients list you will see that there are no questionable items included.  You won’t go wrong with this product, if your budget can handle the cost.

    Bought the Surf and Turf one 2 weeks back for my 14 month old munchkin fold cat. He loves it but it caused him to have soft stools and subsequently diarrhea. Just took him to the vet and they conducted a couple of tests and said its gastrointestinal linked. Probably might be too rich for my poor boy.

      Suri, just about any cat food will cause a problem if it is not introduced very, very slowly. You probably already know that but I can tell you that when I changed my cat’s food, it took several weeks before she received a regular serving of it. The first few days, I only gave her a teaspoon or less of the new food mixed in with the old. I gradually added a bit more of the new food every few days. As I recall, it took close to a month to make a complete switch to the new food.

      If you didn’t do it that way, it is possible that the food was too rich for your cat to handle all at once. If you did introduce it slowly, then I’d certainly be looking for a different option. Cats have rather delicate digestive systems and anytime you change them to a new food, problems can arise. Good luck and I”d love to hear what you switch him to and how it works.
