My Dog And His Food
0

7 posts in this topic

Not sure where to put this , I have always cooked for my dog. I am great friends with the people I got him from , he has always been thinner , just healthier looking,Than his sisters and brothers , mom and dad. I am wondering if it isn't because of his diet? He eats very little dog food. He gets cooked chicken or what ever meat we eat and it gets poured over his dog food. Then he wants some cheese, usually American cheese slices, 2 slices , he sometimes eats a few kernels of dog food but really for a Shitz tzu he eats maby a 5 - 10 lb bag of dog food a year .. I have seen so many dog food companies go natural , or lets say put some "More" natural dog food on the market lately! It isn't just us!! It is animals also that is having problems with the stuff they put on the market!! I don't know I have always wondered why my dog looks so much better that all his "Family" I think now.. It is because he has natural food cooked for him!! He is not heavy and over weight and bloated like his brothers , sisters , mom and dad! It is all the natural cooking!! hmmm yep starting to see something here!

Give that little Shitz some cottage cheese :D  My toy yorkies practically do back flips for it.  And I only mention cheese because American Cheese freaks me out.  Anything formed, molded and made to look like something is just weird, lol.

This dog will get in my face and hit me! To get his cheese!! I have always cooked for him!! Everyone teases me about it!! Says how spoiled he is! But when he was little I could not find a food he would eat!! I tried the expensive ones the cheap ones the, "all natural" no corn, rice and lamb, so good your dog will love it ones!! And he would put his nose up to it! So I just started making him chicken.  The funny thing about his cheese... It has got to be "Kraft" american cheese!! Not just any brand! And if for some reason we are out I tell him "No!" "it's all gone" His lil head just drops.

Mom had a poodle who was born sick. (Poor little thing was rescued from a puppy mill.) She (the dog, not Mom) had severe pancratitis, and her bladder was permiable. She even went to Tufts and has been written up in veterinarian medical journals.

 

Anyway, Mom cooked for the dog. She ate chicken and she ate hamburger. And later in her life, she had to be on a special, medical dogfood. Well, the dog was used to having her food hot so she wouldn't eat it. Mom went out and bought a new toaster oven and used the old one to heat the dogs food (and let me tell you, it REEKED!) But the dog ate it and between Mom's doting care and the help of the vet (I won't go into how much money Mom spent!), that poor little sick dog lived to be 15!

 

She died the same day Mom did. As a matter of fact (you can get through this, Barty), as Mom lay dying it seemed that she didn't want to let go. She was worried about who would take care of the dog. I told her "I've got one hand and Jesus is taking your other hand. He's going to take you home to see Daddy, and Buttons is going to meet you there too."

 

She smiled, and then she died.

 

True story.

    • That's great to hear you are feeling better Nightsky.  I really think when our GI systems are in distress already that it doesn't take much to set off symptoms.  Once I eliminated the other foods that cause me symptoms that helped a lot too.  And added some extra vitamin D to my diet and selenium. Many of us have developed reactions to other foods besides gluten and need to avoid them to keep symptoms at bay.  For me nightshades, carrots, soy, dairy, and celery all cause symptoms.  It took me awhile to figure out all those food culprits, but it made a big difference getting them out of my diet. But we are all individuals, and our bodies react individually.  So you may or may not have additional food intolerances develop. Celiac is one of those life journey things and we learn as we go.  Just keep the bottle of aspirin handy!
    • I know that Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce  in the US is gluten free, I also know that in Canada it is NOT. This is a very reliable site: http://www.glutenfreedietitian.com/vinegar/ But it is in the US. I'm agast that the Irish Celiac Society says malt vinegar is gluten free.  I wouldn't use it. No sense taking any chance at all.
    • You should never have cut out gluten until you had the biopsy done. It's much worse to have to go back on after you've been off gluten for a while. There's no way I could ever do the gluten challenge after being off gluten for even a month because my reactions got so dramatically worse.  Stress definately can trigger celiac- before I was diagnosed - it got the worst after surgery and after a stressful time planning my daughters wedding. 
    • Hi not diagnosed celiac, Welcome to the forum! Your doctor should be sent to remedial celiac disease training.  Since that probably won't happen, I suggest you find a new doctor.  He doesn't know what he's doing when it comes to diagnosing celiac disease. You should not have gone gluten-free before completing all celiac disease testing.  The testing for celiac disease depends on the immune reaction being active.  Removing gluten before testing removes the antigen that causes the immune system to react, and lowers the chances of getting a correct test result dramatically.  The University of Chicago celiac disease center recommends: ******************************************** http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ Prior to blood testing we recommend 12 weeks of eating gluten. Prior to an endoscopic biopsy we recommend 2 weeks of eating gluten. In the case of a severe reaction to gluten, a medical professional may opt to shorten the 12-week challenge and move immediately to an endoscopic biopsy. May, 2013 ******************************************** So you will need to go back to eating gluten before your endoscopy.  That may cause worse symptoms than before when you were eating gluten.  So it would have been better to do all testing before going gluten-free. Can you search for a celiac disease support group in your area?  They exist in many parts of the USA and world.  They can be a good place to get a knowledgeable doctor recommendation.  There is also a doctors subsection of this forum where you can search to see if any doctors in your area were recommended.
    • Hi All, I'm new to this and very confused! I have Lea & Perrins WC sauce, it lists it's first ingredient as Malt Vinegar.  I have the Coeliac Society of Ireland Food List 2015 here, and it says "All Vinegars are Gluten Free including Malt Vinegar." Doesn't that mean that L&P Worcestershire sauce is safe?   Their website states " Lea & Perrins® Worcestershire Sauce is cholesterol free, fat free, preservative free, gluten free and has 80% less sodium than soy sauce. " I'm cooking for my coeliac niece, can't afford to make a mistake!
