While reading through posts, I came across quite a few of you who are very sensitive to gluten in any form. You should be aware that many pet foods, most certainly most brands of DOG FOOD is full of it! Use caution when feeding your pets or giving treats.

Indeed, a lot of pet foods do contain gluten........wash your hands after handling pet food, even if you don't think you came into direct contact with it.

lol! definitely true, and easy to overlook. I guess that's one of the nice things about having a bird. His food does contain gluten, but it's dry pellets, so I don't have to give it to him that often. And all treats are human food that my husband and I eat! :-)

Yes... speaking of gluten in pet food... I'm just glad that dogs and cats aren't celiac (that we know of)... I couldn't think of a single brand that would be safe. Thank you for mentioning it, as I would not have even considered being that a contamination source! We have a mini-zoo.. cat, dog & parrot!!

I'll admit that I did a double-take when I saw the topic.. thinking it was implying human ingestion! Hahahahaa!

I thought I remembered reading some article that mentioned a celiac dog......i guess that could've been a wheat allergy..........sorry, i don't remember the details too well.

Actually wheat, corn and soy are common allergens for dogs. There is quite alot of people who feed a BARF (bones and raw food) to their dogs. All natural raw meat and veggies and rice. I have two boxers who have bad allergies!
