I looked up two Pedigree foods, don't know which one you use, but, while I am happy with corn in my dog's diet, I don't like to see it at the top of the ingredient list as it was in the two Pedigree. Wow, too long a sentence.
I now rotate foods. I am happy with my chicken and corn main food but like to switch around a bit and when I researched my goal was to keep the levels mentionned above as close as I could, since what I had worked. Hope that helps a bit?
I have 3 Italian Greyhounds between 4 and 8 years old. In my experience corn is the worst ingredient in any kibble and has been proven to cause severe allergies and seizures. When looking for a good healthy kibble the first 4 ingredients on the label are the ingredients in the most measure. Corn is most always listed in the first 4. I have fed my guys a kibble known as Actrium Holistic and add a homemade raw burger combo that can be frozen and then thawed. I also add fruit/vegie mixture that I prepare and freeze. My boys have not had any problems with their stools (have been consistant for the last 3 years) and can't remember when their stomachs have been upset. My kibble has 400kcal/cup which is more than enough for a greyhound.
Just my 2 bits but I would suggest you keep away from the corn.
