|The prescription kibbles are more likely to be clean than cheaper brands. The by products are broken down so the body doesn't recognize them as proteins and shouldn't react to them even if the dog is in full allergic crisis. One prescription kibble maker seems to have funded a study showing that normal kibbles often contain other proteins and even none of the protein listed on the list of ingredients! A couple dog food companies were sent letters from FDA even. Perhaps non prescription kibbles and cans are a poor choice for severe allergies if you cannot trust the company to do right.
Corn starch is low protein. It is corn gluten meal that is high protein, same as rice protein, pea protein, potato protein, etc. You missed the cellulose, which really doesn't sound like anything a dog should eat! I am not denying that is is far from my first choice of food and likely most dogs will develop new issues such as poor skin/coat and such but it should cut the inflammation so you can make a fresh start. Even if allergies aren't life threatening they are not minor issues. They cost lots of money, they hurt, they make a dog ugly and stinky and drive everyone around the dog nuts. I sure hope it never comes to feeding prescription allergy food but I would feed the stuff if that is what kept my dog comfortable.
