I'm liking 4health's use of Lamb instead of poultry and it's higher fat and calorie count. My Lab puppy is showing some signs of intolerance to chicken. He's itching and loose poops on his current food (Puppy Chow, I know terrible food but I was broke and needed some food )

They're both around the same price range and won't break my wallet either.

Thoughts?
