Make your own homemade dog food
The cattle industry uses so many antibiotics is because they feed corn to the cattle to fatten them .They are called them feed lots. It's what they do before they slaughter them. Fatten them up. Make them bigger and sell fast. The feeding of hormone and antibiotic laced meat is harmful to your dog.
Recipes and diets that are homemade with the best ingredients
Here is the reason meat, beef and poultry are not good for you.
What does feeding of corn do to a cow?
A cows stomach systems was never designed to eat corn. Cows are grazers. They like to eat grass.
Corn is not a natural diet for them because it causes problems in the gut. Causes gas and infections in the stomach and then they get sick and die. To combat this, the feedlots give them antibiotics so the corn they are feeding them won't kill them.
They also use hormones to make them grow faster and bigger. Hormone use causes breast cancer. I don't want to eat hormones and antibiotics.
It amazes me that this is allowed. No one should have to eat the diet we eat .
What about our dogs? I have given up eating beef. I seldom have it and when I do I make sure it is free range beef and chicken.
Some are for dogs that are ill, obese and/or allergic to the additives and low quality or no quality, meats.
Most of the time, true allergies account for only 10% of actual "allergies". When my old vet could not find anything wrong with my boy he would convince me it was allergies and make me buy the expensive Prescription Diet.
What your dog is allergic to is the additives such as fillers, feathers, (called chicken meal) extruder's so that the it stays in the shape the company desires.
If you look at the ingredients and made them yourself without the red dye and other coloring agents, you would have a dog diet that would be good for your dog, instead of causing allergies.

Gravy is especially nice to use when your dog hates his kibble. One other thing about kibble I should mention. Most of it tastes awful. You might want to check out the ingredients. You do not want any kind of "meal" in it.
The Grain Free Homemade Dog Food Diet
If you do not want to cook for your dog, you should look for a kibble that has no grains in it. I use Orijens Adult and puppy formulas. This is only when I can't make homemade dog food for my dog.
European countries do not allow GM in their markets. England has very strict laws regarding genetically engineered seeds and feed from being fed to the cattle. Even China will not buy grains from us because of the dangers of GMF.
A very simple recipe for your dog could be chopped up chicken breasts (Trader Joe's has a bag of frozen chicken, skinless for around $7.00). Also pick up some carrots and cauliflower. Steam the veggies and add to the cooked chicken. Let cool and feed this to your dog.

I do not recommend plastic containers as the BHA leaches from the plastic and into your food.
Butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) and butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) are often added to foods to preserve fats.
How do they preserve food?
BHA and BHT are antioxidants prevents foods from spoiling. In addition BHA and BHT are fat-soluble.
In addition to preserving foods, BHA and BHT are also used to preserve fats and oils in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.
What foods contain BHA and BHT?
BHA is generally used to keep fats from becoming rancid. BHA is found in meats, cereals, baked goods, snack foods and junk food. It is also found in animal feed, food packaging, cosmetics, rubber products, and petroleum products.
BHT also prevents fats from getting rancid. It is used to preserve food odor, color, and flavor. Many packaging materials incorporate BHT. It is also added directly to shortening, cereals, and other foods containing fats and oils.
Are BHA and BHT safe? NO!
Both BHA and BHT have undergone the additive application and review process required by the US Food and Drug Administration. However, the same chemical properties which make BHA and BHT excellent preservatives may also be implicated in health effects. The oxidative characteristics and/or metabolites of BHA and BHT may contribute to carcinogens and tumors.
Don't let your dog eat these foods
Don't feed your dog any of the following: Some of these foods will kill your pet, sometimes after years of feeding and accumulation of toxins in the dogs' liver.

Spooky and Elle have tried this food and they are thriving on it.
I never thought I would find the perfect kibble for Elle and her skin allergies but I talked to a scientist who said he had done extensive research on Orijen Dog food and he said very good things about it.
