Dog Food & Gluten Symptoms

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

    I just went to my specialist today for my 6mo. follow up appointment. (I was diagnosed 11mo. ago)  We were talking about the symptoms that I am still experiencing & the LONG list of possible causes.

    He told me of a patient that was having trouble trying to figure out how she was getting 'glutened'.  Ends up that when she would open the bag of dog food, she would get a face full of dust/powder.  He said that dog food is loaded with gluten!

I cook for my dog :) That has never been my issue. I have always said: I'f I can eat it, my dog can eat it! He has never like noodles, or pasta in any way. Not even gravy. But yea I have heard your dog licking and kissing you can get you glutened so yup be careful!

My animals are gluten-free and also do better without it. Both of them had improvement in fur quality and arthritis!

I was once glutened by my shampoo. Now I only use gluten-free shampoo and make-up just to avoid having ANY gluten enter my mouth. Toothpaste is another culprit. I have enjoyed reading the articles written by Jane Anderson on about.com on where to look for unexpected sources of gluten.

Both my cats and my dog eat grain free. It was one of the first steps in decontaminating my house. The only products that I use daily that are not gluten-free are my makeup products with the exception of lip products.
