Merrick's Puppy Plate

We have been feeding Sydney Merrick's Puppy Plate dry kibble that looks like this.

As you can see, it has peas in it. Sydney eats so fast that she doesn't chew. I have noticed a few times that she is not digesting the peas, they are coming out whole. Is this ok?

We have pea donations in our BM's as well. It's not a problem and I think as they get older it will actually get used by the system more. I've noticed a difference already from feeding it. My older dogs don't have the same evidence.

Aren't peas mostly fibre? Maybe that's their purpose...
