I got the link fine but if I recall correctly I am a member of Medscape - I believe I just plain signed up for it - I know there isn't any fee for anything I sign up for otherwise I think very long and very hard whether it's going to be worth my money or not.

There's a gluten sniffing dog?????????????  I WANT ONE!  That way, as a service dog, I could take the pup into a restaurant and not be kicked out. ;) I have always marveled how in Europe, you see some dogs in cafes, sitting besides their owners while they eat. But having a dog to sniff out gluten is just so cool!

Nah.......there are no gluten sniffing dogs....yet!  With 20% of children who are dietary compliant but are not healed (villi) after one year (per the subject article), I think dogs could be a solution.

I read about a gluten sniffing dog probably 2 years ago so I Googled it. Apparently there are several now as well as those who say they can train them. Read on my friends:

I know there are dogs for other food related things but I haven't heard of one for gluten yet.  

We'd still be in the weeds though with allergies, celiac and animal allergies :lol:

As long as they don't have gluten sniffing cats, I am good.  I am allergic to cats but not dogs. And yes.......I have a cat!  Isn't that always the way?  ;)

I have a plan when I retire to finally have another dog.  If he/she could sniff out gluten, what a bonus that would be!  Thank you for the link!
