Pedigree as i heard is a very cheap dog food. Sea cod liver oil capsules are good for the dog!
If pedigree is not your choice and budget is not a constraint, buy Royal canine or eukanuba dog food. Its 2 to 3 times costlier than pedigree.
If budget is a Constraint :
In a pressure cooker, Put 1 cup of rice, pinch of tumeric powder, pinch of salt, Pinch of dhanya Powder along with Chicken liver, Gizzards ( Stomach) or normal chicken cut in to small pieces, add 3 cups of water and cook! This should be sufficient for a Day or so.
Or you can even feed it Curds, Milk and rice or Paneer,
You can also boil 2 eggs and Mix them with a handfull of rice and feed your dog.
Give 1 cap cod in morning and 1 in evening.
If you read the ingredients on all these Pedigree, royal etc.. most contain rice and meat of some sort...Now what quality meat they are putting is not known.

Rahul, all commercial foods including RC, Eukanuba, etc are grain based. Dogs can be allergic to grains. In this context, Pedigree or any other brand can cause itching or allergic reation to your dog. Taste of Wild is only grain free commercial food available in the market. Most cheap dog foods like Pedigree and Drool contain animal by-products. They buy wastes ( animal parts unfit for human consumption ) very cheaply from animal slaughterhouses and then make dog food out of them. Seacod capsules can improve your dog's coat and help keep it healthy. You can feed raw egg which will also keep the coat healthy.

Great Answer.... Navjot...but rarely dogs are allergic to grains. if its a major problem, then i guess these dog food companies will be shut down in no time.... Yes same as humans, some things or foods will be allergic to some dogs... So Rahul.... Feed you dog and see if it has any allergies and take caution and care for the future.....

Jamie, this revolution has already started in countries like US and UK where some leading dog food companies are almost on the brink of extinction . This is the reason why most of them are now trying to make their market base in India.Most dog and cat owners have started to swich to BARF/PMD. Skin allergies is largely attributed to dry or wet commercial dog foods. Apart from that, dogs of this generation are a lot unhealthier & more prone to infections than their ancestors about 50 years ago. Am not against feeding dog foods and I've myself fed Canobites to my own dog, but I feel their consumption should be restricted only to the first 6-7 months. We have to switch to home-made food to ensure future well-being of our animals. The first time dog owners who no little about dog nutrition should feed packed food which undoubtedly offer better digestibility to puppies who tend to have weak digestive system.
Grain is not the only questionable ingredient in packed foods, the level of preservatives is extreamly high in commercial food. If fed for longer period, these preservatives can prove deterimental for our dogs health.

I think Pedigree is not good because it contains fillers , chicken waste from slaughter houses, Artificial preservatives which can leads to cancer.
