An Interesting Tidbit I Found!

Recommended Posts

I bought Oprah's November issue, just to see what the magazine is all about and to be honest, I probably will never buy it again!

Yet, I did find an interesting ad very close to the back of the magazine. This sad looking terrier has a caption above his head and in it, it says, "Mom, my skin itches....is there wheat in my food?" Then the ad goes on to tell that most dog food contains wheat, corn, or soy protein, which can trigger allergic reactions in your dogs. The dog food is Blue and it is gluten free, as well as corn and soy free, with no animal by-products. I'm impressed--they even have a website for the food: www.truebluetest.com and you can get a free sample of the food for your pet.

Cool, not only are we getting more news coverage, so are our celiac pets!!!!! :lol:

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

My roommate just started getting that for her dog. The vet thinks he's gluten intolerant, and it's much cheaper to try to change his diet than run tests. Right now the poor animal is still taking tons of anti-histamines because he'll rub his eyes on the carpet until they bleed and then he starts screaming. Hopefully the food will help him.

My mom actually makes the food for our two pugs and the vet was absolutely amazed by how nice their fur and faces were when they went in for a visit.

We feed our cats and dog EVO dry foods made by Innova. No grains - just veggies and meat. They seem to do pretty well on it too. EVO also makes dog treats, but the dog doesn't like them. Still searching for a gluten-free doggie goodie that he'll like.

I know that Iam's dry food is all gluten free. I wish the dog biscuits were too.

I have been looking at the ingredients of the dry foods by this company, they may be wheat free but they are not gluten free. Every one I looked at even the lamb and rice has barley in it. I go with the INNOVA brand that someone else mentioned and my pets are much happier and no more mystery glutenings.

Yeah, the Blue Brand does have barley and oats in it, but is wheat and soy free. We've been feeding our dog Wellness Brand for about a year now. It is wheat free, corn free, and has lots of fruits and veggies in it. He was getting REALLY itchy last year, and just started to chew his fur out! It was really bad.....so I figured....he must be like his momma (me)!!!!! So we tried the Wellness that's at least wheat free, and they just came out with a grain free, soy and dairy free dog food too! After about 2 months on the new food, he wasn't ripping his fur out anymore!! YAY!! :D

I just looked up the Innova food, and it contained barley. So I looked up the Iams, and it looks gluten-free to me. I think we may switch to that food so I don't have to worry about my toddlers eating it! You know toddlers have to taste everything! We have a big gate up right now seperating our kitchen from the rest of the house because that is where we have the pet food. It would be so nice to take that gate down!

Innova makes several brands of food. The EVO doesn't contain any grain, although it does contain some dairy. If you're interested, check the ingredients out here at www.evopet.com.

Where do you buy the EVO and Wellness brands of food?

Funny note on dog biscuits and toddlers, my dad got some biscuits called Ms.Pugslys (I think that's the name, it had pug in it) that were free of all common allergens. The dogs didn't like them at first, but I tried them and they weren't half bad!

We buy Wellness at Pet Supermarket. (I don't think Pet Smart carries it) I also noticed they have it at Wild Oats and Whole Foods stores. Our dog looooves Wellness, he eats it so fast!! Other brands we tried...like Nutro...he'd eat it...but not all at one sitting.

I'm not a pet owner, but those of you interested in celiac disease in pets should check out a website by "Dogtor J". He's a celiac who also happens to be a vet. He has a lot of insight into celiac disease in animals (did you know that celiac disease is common in Irish Setters?)

Oh, I'm definitely going to check out that link, thank you! I have a Border Collie, which is in the same "family" as Irish Setters I believe.
