Can Cat Food Cause Glutening?
0

13 posts in this topic

I have found out most of the food I give to my two cats contains either "wheat flour" or a more generic "cereals" (Royal Canin Ageing and Ultra light, and Hill's k/d in pouches).

I'm going to change their diet. However - did anyone have inklings and/or established that the food they gave their cats was actually a cause of glutening?

 

thanks

it certainly can be. Cats eat the food, they then lick themselves, then you pet them, and so on.

I haven't heard about cats, but a doctor who has celiac disease was being glutened by her adorable, kissable, slobbery (think teething), gluten-eating toddlers.   Her solution was to make her entire house/family  go gluten-free.   My dog is currently on grain free food and so was my cat (RIP, Tux-boy!)

Yup. Gluteny cat food can end up glutening you. Take the pets grain free. BTW, dogs are allergic to wheat, corn & soy. And when was the last time you saw a cat ins. a field of corn eating the corn? Than why is it in their food? Way too many cats getting diabetes these days.

I agree with the above posters.  I have my cats on Costco brand grain free cat food.  It's called Natures Domain.  It has salmon and sweet potato and all kinds of gluten free goodness.  My overweight elderly cat has lost weight and his coat is so thick and shiny now.

Yep many of us have been glutened by pet food. In my case it was rabbit food. The risk does not only come from the food itself, but some traces can be on the pet's fur. Meaning that you have to wash your hands after petting.

I found gluten-free pellets for my bun now, which has worked well for both of us.

I HAVEN'T taken my cat gluten-free, simply because I can't get gluten-free cat food here. (They have gluten-free DOG food, but nothing for cats!) I just turn my head when I pour the dried food into her dish, and I scrub my hands EVERY time I put anything in my mouth. She never gets into my lap. She just isn't a lap cat, I guess. She would much rather stay on the floor and be petted. The only time she gets near my face is in the morning when she thinks it's time for me to get up. Then she gently pats my cheek. :wub:

Yes.  I feed mine Now!  It's grain free.  There are a lot of grain free ones out there but you're not likely to find them at the grocery store.  You might even have to try a smaller specialty pet store.

 

Gluten is not an issue for me but I am highly intolerant to eggs.  I once got a free can of cat food with eggs in it.  Fed it to the cats.  One cat licked me and I got a rash.  Never again!

We use Evo.  I switched our cats very soon after my daughter's diagnosis.

I've been told "no" before, but I break out in dermatitis and I've had horrid reactions after opening package after package to help my inlaws, and also just petting the cats. IF/When we have any pets, they will all be gluten free. :mellow:

I was just buying canned cat food today and all but one brand in the supermarket (Friskies) had the actual words "wheat gluten" in the ingredients. Yikes! Get thee away from me, oh evil one!!!! :o

    • Those cooked eggs are just fine!  If you want to insure that the frig is colder, add a bucket of ice.  Is used to travel without the benefit of a frig.  I just used a couple of ice buckets to chill milk, or whatever.  It worked.  If you want a hot meal, try Udi's frozen meals.   Not the best, but good for hotel cooking.  Several lunch meats are gluten free too at the market.  
    • I clicked it and got re-directed to c.com  but this time I got the article.  I shouldn't copy the whole thing but here is the conclusion - "In conclusion, in the right clinical setting, symptomatic celiac disease is treatable, but we do not recommend population screening. Further data on the clinical impact of a glutenfree diet on the microbiome and the long-term health consequences in those without celiac disease are needed. The entity NCGS closely overlaps with the functional gastrointestinal disorders, and new evidence suggests that at least in some gluten may not be the culprit despite symptom improvement after beginning a gluten-free diet.We do not recommend a lifelong gluten-free diet for individuals without celiac disease."   Celiac Disease and Nonceliac Gluten or Wheat Sensitivity The Risks and Benefits of Diagnosis Nicholas J.

    • Thanks for the responses. As far as genetic testing goes I wasn't offered that as an option. They ran several labs and everything was normal. We were waiting on celiac to come back and when it did the one marker was high. Not sure who I would talk to about having a genetic test. I did a genesight test for medications and it showed folic acid was questionable. But nothing pertaining to this. Endoscopy is scheduled for Friday. 
    • Refractory celiac disease (RCD) is a rare manifestation of celiac disease that is difficult to treat, and often results in death from enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma.Doctors looking to treat RCD have found very limited success with a number of immunosuppressive medications (IMs), including azathioprine, systemic corticosteroids, or regular budesonide. A team of researchers at the Mayo Clinic recently set out to assess open-capsule budesonide (OB) treatment on RCD patients, including those who saw no improvement with previous IM treatments.

    • I'm on my first business trip since being diagnosed. I brought all kinds of food with me, as I'm in a Hilton hotel and I have a fridge and microwave in my room. I brought yogurt, cheese, eggs, fruit, bread, peanut butter, Terra sweet potato chips, Popcorn Indiana popcorn, snow peas. Does anyone have tips for me? Ideas for what I can eat, aside the things I mentioned? I made some hard boiled eggs before I left home but the fridge in my room isn't great and I don't know how cold they've been overnight so I'm not sure I'll eat them. I don't know how cold eggs need to stay. I'm in a small town but there are supermarkets. I'm just limited because I don't have a stove or much cooking space.
