My ds is 18 months old. Every time I take him to my mom's house his symptoms come back. He has bad sleep, loss of appetite, constipation, and tantrums. We are careful when eating there. She has bought him his own foods and dishes. The only thing I can think of is the pets are contaminating him. She has cats and dogs. He does get into the bowls sometimes, but I immediately wash his hands. Can he get contaminated from petting them or kissing them?

I believe so. I had to switch my 2 cats to grain free food. He can for sure get sick by kissing the pets!

Absolutely Yes. Dogs tend to give kisses on the face, cats lick their fur, son touches and bam. You really need her to use gluten free pet foods. And it's healthier for the pets too.
