Can Cat Food Cause Glutening?

13 posts in this topic

I have found out most of the food I give to my two cats contains either "wheat flour" or a more generic "cereals" (Royal Canin Ageing and Ultra light, and Hill's k/d in pouches).

I'm going to change their diet. However - did anyone have inklings and/or established that the food they gave their cats was actually a cause of glutening?

 

thanks

it certainly can be. Cats eat the food, they then lick themselves, then you pet them, and so on.

I haven't heard about cats, but a doctor who has celiac disease was being glutened by her adorable, kissable, slobbery (think teething), gluten-eating toddlers.   Her solution was to make her entire house/family  go gluten-free.   My dog is currently on grain free food and so was my cat (RIP, Tux-boy!)

Yup. Gluteny cat food can end up glutening you. Take the pets grain free. BTW, dogs are allergic to wheat, corn & soy. And when was the last time you saw a cat ins. a field of corn eating the corn? Than why is it in their food? Way too many cats getting diabetes these days.

I agree with the above posters.  I have my cats on Costco brand grain free cat food.  It's called Natures Domain.  It has salmon and sweet potato and all kinds of gluten free goodness.  My overweight elderly cat has lost weight and his coat is so thick and shiny now.

Yep many of us have been glutened by pet food. In my case it was rabbit food. The risk does not only come from the food itself, but some traces can be on the pet's fur. Meaning that you have to wash your hands after petting.

I found gluten-free pellets for my bun now, which has worked well for both of us.

I HAVEN'T taken my cat gluten-free, simply because I can't get gluten-free cat food here. (They have gluten-free DOG food, but nothing for cats!) I just turn my head when I pour the dried food into her dish, and I scrub my hands EVERY time I put anything in my mouth. She never gets into my lap. She just isn't a lap cat, I guess. She would much rather stay on the floor and be petted. The only time she gets near my face is in the morning when she thinks it's time for me to get up. Then she gently pats my cheek. :wub:

Yes.  I feed mine Now!  It's grain free.  There are a lot of grain free ones out there but you're not likely to find them at the grocery store.  You might even have to try a smaller specialty pet store.

 

Gluten is not an issue for me but I am highly intolerant to eggs.  I once got a free can of cat food with eggs in it.  Fed it to the cats.  One cat licked me and I got a rash.  Never again!

We use Evo.  I switched our cats very soon after my daughter's diagnosis.

I've been told "no" before, but I break out in dermatitis and I've had horrid reactions after opening package after package to help my inlaws, and also just petting the cats. IF/When we have any pets, they will all be gluten free. :mellow:

I was just buying canned cat food today and all but one brand in the supermarket (Friskies) had the actual words "wheat gluten" in the ingredients. Yikes! Get thee away from me, oh evil one!!!! :o
