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?

FWIW - I tried the food you mentioned. My dog seemed really hyped up (more than usual :lol: ) on it.

So, now I am trying a grain free "low carb" kibble by Solid Gold. It has Turkey/Salmon as the protein source.

It is 42/20 - higher in protein than most... I am just trying it out now. Not sure if I am sold on it or not.

It is called "Barking at the Moon High Protein, Low Carb Adult Dog Food". I had to special order it.

Here's some info from their site
