Novel protein performance foods

Quick question -

A friend of a friend has a Lab that is primarily a hunting dog, but he is hoping to run it in HT's. He has always fed the dog a performance food but lately dog has developed some skin problems. Long story short, the vet thinks it is a true food allergy and has suggested he try some non-chicken based foods.

Looking at the lamb and rice options has him nervous - the fat and protein content is waaaaay lower than the 30/20 food he's been feeding.

Would the Purina Pro Plan Sensitive Skin formula be a good option as a performance food? It's a 26/16 food. Anyone had good luck with that?

I wanted my dogs to eat Nature's variety or Canidae, but Britain did not like it, and Carbon had terrible gas.They did OK on Innova, but not great, and Brit still would skip a lot of meals.
Finally, when Whistler got so sick and quit eating anything, I tried Pro Plan sensitive stomach. I knew he liked Salmon as he always stole my dinner.
Britain eats it more often than not, often with added stuff, but everyone else loves it, and no more gas.
Never thought I would feed Purina, but so far so good-
Great skin, no change in behavior, still bad goldens.
