Dog Treats
0

10 posts in this topic

The doctor doesn't want me to touch or use products with wheat. Since we plan on getting a dog that would include not touching most dog treats and dog food. What about dog treats that are only made with oats or barley? Has anyone had any problems when touching dog treats made with oats or barley? I know there are 100% liver treats, which I plan on buying but some dogs can't have too much purines. I thought of making dog biscuits from oatmeal but sometimes there isn't always enough time.

What dog treats do you use for your pet?

Lovely, here is another topic that I hadn't even thought about. Sometimes, I can be soooo dense. ;) Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

I'm pretty lucky, my dogs will eat almost anything that I give them. All they have to hear is the word TREAT, and they are all over it. :lol:

Thanks again.

Your very welcome!

P.S. When I asked the doctor if it would be dangerous for me to touch dog snacks that are wheat-free but do contain oats or barley, he didn't think that I needed to worry. ;):D

Why don't you just wear a disposable plastic glove on your hand while you scoop out the dog food? It's a lot easier than trying to find gluten-free dog food!

Thanks Sara, I already thought of that. But I need dog treats for training purposes. 100% liver treats are gluten-free but I wanted to have a few choices. Carrots work for some dogs and not others. Liver works for most but now some.

But there are a few wheat-free dog biscuit choices for those that need them. :D

The food we feed our pet is Purina Lamb and Rice. Therefore a dog can digest rice. Why not give him salt free rice crackers from your own gluten free stash?

for treats have you tried hot dogs? I have never seen a dog that wouldn't jump to the moon for a piece of hot dog.

Thanks for the ideas!!!!!!

I could try rice cakes too! Maybe gluten-free cereals but they do contain sugars though. I think the rice crunchies are low in sugars. I will try tiny pieces of carrots too! I like to use healthy gluten-free snacks in one of my dog's toys. It's a large cube that spills out treats as the dog pushes the toy around the floor with her nose. No pudgy pooches here, besides I want my carpet to be free of wheat. We do lie on the carpet from time to time.

    • Maybe its trapped water in your ear?  Or maybe an ear infection or allergic reaction to something.  Hopefully you aren't a fan of the Braindead TV show... :)
    • Hi everyone, I've been reading this forum sporadically and have some questions of my own. I'm in my 40s and was diagnosed with celiac last December by biopsy and blood work after months of tests by my primary and then a gastro. My husband, around the same age as me, was dx'd with stage 4 cancer a month later, so admittedly it's took me longer than I'd have liked to learn about celiac. Now I feel pretty on top of my diet. I mostly make my own food - proteins and veggies, with some certified gluten-free snacks in the mix - and am pretty strict about what I will/won't eat at friend's houses or in restaurants (I prefer to go to dedicated gluten-free kitchens whenever possible). I'm doing okay on the diet, but still getting glutened every so often, usually when I let me guard down outside the home. I also periodically see my primary and a naturopath (who happens to have celiac!), but still, I have many questions if anyone would care to answer:

      -FATIGUE. I'm still so tired, fatigued so much of the time. My doctors blame this on the stress of my husband's diagnosis and my periodic trouble sleeping. But even during weeks where I'm sleeping enough (8-10 hrs a day), eating right, exercising as I can, trying to keep stress at bay, I'm still so bleeping tired. Maybe not when I wake up, but by late afternoon. Often my legs even feel weak/wooden. Has anyone else experienced greater fatigue early on after being diagnosed? This will pass, yes? I know I could cut out the sweets and that could help, but also, being a caregiver is hard and sometimes it's nice to eat your feelings between therapy sessions.  

      -SYMPTOMS CAUSED BY FATIGUE? Sometimes I'll have other "feels like I've been glutened" symptoms if I haven't gotten enough sleep, though I'm trying so hard to sleep at least 8 hours a night these days. Hasn't happened in a while thankfully, but there was a point this summer where my insomnia was bad and my arms were achy and I had some crazy flank/back pain I'd never experienced before. For weeks. Doctor ordered me to sleep sleep sleep, taking Benedryl if needed. I did, and the symptoms went away, but weird, yes? Has this happened to you? I ask because I want to make sure I'm getting all strange pains tested to the full extent if there's a chance it's something other than celiac. I do sometimes still feel that strange side stitch after a CC incident.

      -SKIN PROBLEMS. I have had a smidge of eczema since I was a teen and it - and the dermatitis herpetiformis I've acquired with my dx - are out of control right now. I recognize the connection with stress, but also, has anyone found any great natural remedies for DH to stop the itching? I've tried so many useless ointments and medicated creams, a number of them given to my by a dermo months ago. I see my naturopath this week, but thought I'd ask here too.

      -MOSTLY gluten-free KITCHEN GOOD ENOUGH? My husband is supportive of my diet and mostly eats gluten free meals with me, but we still keep a gluten-y toaster for him and the gluten-y dog food in a corner of the kitchen and he still makes the occasional meal with gluten for himself on his own cookware (ravioli, pizza, mac n cheese, etc). Or sometimes I make eggs/toast and the like for him when he's too sick to move. Otherwise, we're militant about how we cook, which cookware we use, etc. He even has a kitchen nook off our den where he makes sandwiches. But sometimes I wonder if having two separate sponges in our shared-ish main kitchen is enough and I should just banish all gluten whatsoever from the kitchen. I can't be the only one with a mixed kitchen, right? How do you do it if you have a mixed-eating family?

      Thank you so much!  
    • Celiac disease--the inability to tolerate food containing gluten--has long ... Lactobacillus were able to detoxify the gluten and remain symptom-free. View the full article
    • Hang in there!  Count your blessings.  Do something you like to do and relax. I know that is hard to do as a young mother (as I sit here in the kitchen sipping coffee quietly as my teenager is sleeping in after a late football game last night where she marched in 90 degree plus weather in full uniform).   But seriously, take a few minutes to relax!  
    • Meredith, this is very true. A colonoscopy is for diagnosis of the lower intestine, endoscopy for the upper intestine.  How did your doctor interpret the tests? I suggest you read the link Cycling Lady gave you because it contains a lot of good information.
