About a year ago I decided to change my dogs food from Pedigree to Pruina Pro Plan. One day I looked at the ingredients and noticed a filler and by-products as the first ingredients. So I switched to a food with real meat as the first ingredient. My Chow, Alley, was on Pedigree for 7 years and I followed the steps to slowly change her food. She is on the new food and loves it. She is going to the bathroom easier and in all around better health, I feel. I was just wondering if I made the right choice? She is on Purina Pro Plan Sensitive Skin and Stomach. http://www.proplan.com/dry-dog-food/sen ... fault.aspx But lately I have been noticing her itching a lot more lately and eating at her skin. She will be going to the vet next week for an examination. I hope it isn't a food allergy. But that aside, did I make the right choice? Thanks.
- This is my beautiful Chow Alley. She is 8 years old but has the mindset of a 4 year old!

It's good that Salmon is the first ingredient, but it's bad that the next meat is fifth on the list. Once the water is removed from the salmon, the second and third ingredients become more important, and in this case the second ingredient is brewers rice, and the third canola meal. I'd consider those filler/by-products.
