Topics I've Started

gluten-free Cat Food For Constipated Cats

04 July 2015 - 06:30 AM

I've posted about this briefly in other topics, but I think I really need to make a switch and need help.

My cat has been to the hospital twice for severe constipation. The vet put her on a special prescription food to help her go to the bathroom, and now she's healthy and very happy. But it has gluten in it. I'm struggling. My boyfriend mostly feeds her but sometimes he gets stuck at work or goes out of town. I hold my breath when I feed her because of particles that are released in the air when I open the bag, and I wash my hands constantly. But then of course she licks herself after she eats. And she sheds. And her hair is everywhere. And I also want to kiss her because I love her so much.

I'm going to talk with our vet, but my boyfriend is very reluctant to try anything new for fear of endangering our cat's life.

Does anyone know of gluten free cat food for constipation?

Also, any advice? I feel like I need a hug.

New Food Steamer?

06 May 2015 - 10:51 AM

Even though I've been gluten-free for several years, I have the occasional "Oh no, I never thought about _____!" moment. This time it's about my food steamer.

I have one of those plastic food steamers that has an extra steaming bowl for rice.I had it before going gluten-free and at one point cooked gluteny flavored rice in the steaming bowl. I ordered a new steaming bowl. BUT should I have also replaced the lid and any other parts of it since it's all plastic? 


And dear Lord, when does the questioning end!?!?!

Mid-Week Funny!

Thought I would share! What I love about this is that it states at the beginning that they are clearly making fun of the fad diet, not the medical condition. Enjoy!



Ice Cream Made From Cashews? gluten-free?

16 March 2015 - 07:47 PM

I've been talking with a local ice cream company about their gluten free status. It all looks good in terms of their actual ice cream making process. They are very good about avoiding cross contamination. My last question was about their ice cream base. It's a vegan ice cream, so they make it from cashews. I asked them if the cashews themselves are free from cross contamination. I got this response back. What do you think? Does anyone know about the allergen policies for raw materials from other countries? 


"Regarding cashews...to be honest, we have not looked into the process by which the nuts are harvested. We use a specific cashew nut from a specific country but we are not sure how to inquire into whether or not these cashews have been contaminated through processing. Cashew is a global raw material commodity and we purchase it in quantities numbering in the tons, so it would be highly unlikely that the nuts have gone anywhere near equipment or even processing plants that also handle gluten-containing materials."
