The pills don't actually contain beef- it is a protein that is meant to be beef flavored. So you shouldn't have to worry.

It is beef flavored, not actually made with beef.

Yes, "beef flavored" doesn't necessarily mean actual beef.

If you are still worried they also have topicals such as Advantage Multi and Revolution.

I work at a vet clinic, I was told by the company and the vets there it is just flavoring.
