i absolutely love my 2 kitties. i think i have done a pretty thorough job of ridding my apartment of any traces of gluten. the one place i completely missed was my cats. they are very loveable and cuddly. they eat IAMS cat food and treats which i dont think are gluten-free. does anyone know which cat foods are safe?

This probably isn't going to be very helpful, but I went pet food shopping last night seeking gluten free cat food. I have found no totally gluten free catfood, but I did find one that had oats as the grain. It looks very good for cats, because it also has things like dried cranberries, probiotics, and all of that. I can't understand why I can find gluten-free dogfood, but I have been unable to find anything closer to gluten free in cat food than what I got last night. Anyway, the reason it won't be helpful is because I cannot for the life of me remember the brand name of the stuff I bought! It was pretty expensive, though. I found it in a very upscale petfood store. Now I'm spending more on our dogs and cats' food than I am on ours!

I'm sure it was Patti (jersey angel) who said in the gab forum that her cat is now gluten-free and he's on Science Diet

What I have found is that you have to go to a pet store to find gluten-free cat food. There is one Purina dry cat food ( I believe it's indoor formula) that doesn't have gluten, and thats it for brands found in regular grocery stores.

I feed my kittys Eukanuba for dry food and Nature's somthingorother for wet food.

Yep--Nikki's right! I just put my cat on Science Diet Senior over the past weekend. He seems to love it--and has not thrown up once since starting on it! :)

Patti,

Thank you. I used to have a senior cat on Science Diet. I think I'll go get some from my vet. Thanks!

Is Eukanuba gluten-free? My vet strongly recommended IAMs, but clearly thats a no no because it has a ton of gluten in it. I have heard good things about Eukanuba. My cats only eat dried food and one kitty is in need of losing a few pounds.

I think most of them are, I too have a cat that only really likes dry food, but I have to give them meds and need wet food for that. I read the label every time I get thier food. From all I could tell, it seemed to be gluten free, and it hasn't made me sick, wheras a bag of friskies poofed cat food dust in my face when I was first gluten-free and made me sick for three days. ug.

They seem to like it too.

There are some types of Science Diet that are prescription and are only available from a vet. Regular Science Diet foods are available at PetSmart and PetCo....

    • Where do I start??
      I will be going for my endoscopy on Februry 19. The other day in reading about Celiacs, I read about the strange rashes often associated with celieacs and gluten intolerrance. About six months ago, a rash exactly as you describe showed up on the backs of my knees. The doctor didn't know what it was, hought maybe it was ringworm, and gave me some topical medicine, and the spots did go away with time. However, I've had the same type of spots show up in other places occassionally. I know for a fact they were not ringworm.
    • Advice on reintroducing dairy.
      I can!   Start with hard cheeses, then yogurt/butter, soft cheeses and finally milk/cream.  Start slowly and build.  Give yourself time to get your body to release the enzymes necessary to digest lactose.  Certified gluten-free enzymes for lactose can help the transition.  Lactose free milk and ice cream are helpful too.  Remember, that genetically some of us are predisposed to being lactose intolerant no matter what (e.g. aging, race).   I wish you success!      
    • Gluten free diet, positive celiac screen...what should I eat now?
      Here is a link that explains why you should get tested (completely) for celiac disease: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/diagnosing-celiac-disease/diagnosis/ As far as the link to the functional doctor....why?  If you get a celiac diagnosis, chances are you will heal on a gluten free diet.  As you have probably seen on this forum, most of us encourage newly diagnosed members to eat a whole-foods, easy-to-digest (a.k.a "cooked to death")  gluten-free diet to speed healing.  Going Paleo might not be the best right now, if you have celiac disease.  Eating lots of nuts, raw fruits and veggies can be tough on a damaged gut.  You can try that diet later!   Everyone is different due to various degrees of damage, so some may have temporary intolerances  (e.g. lactose).  You just have to experiment.   Save your money and spend it on good wholesome food.  I heartily support getting away from the SAD (Standard American Diet).   Celiac disease is the one autoimmune disorder that is healed by avoiding a food -- gluten!  
    • Itchy skin
      I have DH and itchy skin is a symptom.     Your Dermatologist could write a script for Dapsone, provided you're not allergic to Sulphur.     Expect blood labs to go with using Dapsone.      You need to study everything that goes in your mouth for possible gluten content, including all meds.
    • Advice on reintroducing dairy.
      Hello,  I am currently 20 months, 1 day gluten-free. I stopped consuming dairy a few weeks after going gluten-free when I realized I was having lingering symptoms. Since going gluten-free dairy-free each day has been a day closer to feeling like my old self. As a child never had any issues with gluten or dairy. It wasn't until a year before my blood test/endoscopy that I began getting sick or noticing any issues. Diaherria, nausea, abdominal pain like I ate a sparkler, shaking and trembling. My whole experience before going gluten free was a nightmare. That year I lived in fear of leaving my home because I would be so sick and restroom hopping and uncomfortable at work. As of now, I m doing much better. I can tolerate things I couldn't following my diagnosis... Orange juice, coffee, salsa... And have gained 10 pounds back. I do miss cheese dearly but am afraid to try and see if I can tolerate dairy again. Is there anyone who can give any advice about reintroducing dairy? When is the best time to try? Should I wait I until I hit my 2 year mark? Any advice, successful or unsuccessful stories would be much appreciated so I can decide what the next step is for me... Or if I will even make a step. That ks in advance. ~Nora.
