I have a bag that my puppy refused. You're welcome to it!

It smells good, but she just refused.

I ran out of the usual food Nutro large breed formula. He would eat this fine and tolerated it without any gi problems. I tried him on the nutro lamb and rice formula (gluten free) and he had bad diarhea from it. I don't think he can handle lamb. I have been wanting to try this for awhile so I bought it tonight. He gobbled it up, but then again, he'll eat anything. I hope he does not get diarrhea from this one. I like that it is grain free.

I belong to a Siberian husky list that has more than 1000 members, some international. I don't believe any of us feed grocery store type dog food. I know some members feed TOTW and are pleased with their dogs' health. Long before I was diagnosed with celiac disease I decided that I would not feed any of my pets grains. My four Siberians eat Canidae All Life Stages alternating with Chicken Soup for the dog Lover's Soul, Adult Dog, and my three house cats eat EVO for cats and kittens. Now that stuff is expensive! After its most recent price increase I treid to switch my cats to a less expensive food. Unfortunately, my skinny, picky cat would rather starve. All my pets have been abused or seriously neglected prior to being adopted or rescued by me and I promised every one of them they would have a safe and decent home, a constant supply of water and great food, so the cats continue to dine on EVO. I, on the other hand, can't even have wheat ;)

He seemed really eager to eat this. But like I said he will eat about anything. I don't feed him any table scraps at all because I can't stand to have a dog sit and stare and beg while I am at the table. He was a rescue dog so his eagerness to eat most everthing could have something to do with his past. I didn't have a problem with his food containing gluten before. I just wanted a better quality dog food for him. Dog or person the quality of our food has a big inpact on health. It being grain free is just a bonus. I had a chow/sharpai mix that had alot of ear/skin problems. I think if I knew then what I know now and switched his food to a better one (I fed him purina) that he probably would have been alot better off. Unfortunatly we had to have him put down a little over two years ago. When we got our current dog it had been a year since we lost our other dog. I've learned alot since then.

My wife and I own and operate a pet supply business that sells many foods including Taste of the Wild and Canidae.

Canidae ALS has recently been reformulated and is no longer gluten-free. It now contains barley. There is a grain-free Canidae formula.

Taste of the Wild has a feline formula and it is grain free. We feed it here at home to our three cats. It is not the only food that they get, but they seem to like it. They also get canned food.

Peter,

I had forgotten about the barley. I was perfectly happy with the previous Canidae formula and then they raised the price and changed the formula so I started looking into other kibble. I found a local chain, Country Max, that has frequent sales. By then I had introduced the Chicken Soup and the dogs were doing well on it. I prefer to have them on Canidae so I gave in and went back, even with the barley. Now, I alternate so they will be comfortable on either so I can stock up on whatever is on sale. I am not thrilled to use two brands that are manufactured in a Diamond facility. I hope they are being careful after having to recall in the not too distant past. Years ago, when I was working, I fed the Sibes Solid Gold Beef and Barley. I had to switch to Canidae when I could no longer afford Solid Gold. I thought I could afford to be a responsible pet owner when I decided to retire. I was feeding four Sibes and two cats back then. When the economy went bad and my meager portfolio took quite a beating I realized I hadn't really forecast the expense of feeding my pets food I believe is good for them. It didn't make things any easier when my son managed to convince me to take a third cat. It will break my heart if I have to cut back even further and feed the pets food I consider trash. Right now I am able to find the dogs' food at less than $1.00 per pound, by chasing sales. The cat food is crazy expensive but they don't eat a lot so I can still afford EVO. That is something I can't find a sale for. What do you consider the best kibble for dogs?

We feed our dogs the Diamond Naturals foods. They do contain barley, but no wheat or corn. I am not concerned about the recalls a few years back... almost all dog foods end up on recall lists from time to time. With Diamond, several years ago they got that one really bad batch of corn and that was a disaster but they changed a lot since then (and, again, the Naturals lines don't even contain corn now). When Melamine was the issue, Diamond was being so careful about how they sourced their ingredients but then one of the outside companies that contracted with them to produce their foods ran a line of tainted stuff. As a precaution, Diamond recalled all their foods produced in that plant even though there was no evidence that the tainted product made it into any of the Diamond brand food.

I think they had a slightly different issue with their canned dog food recall but we don't feed canned so I don't remember what that was about.

Our dog food is stored and fed in the outdoor kennel so I don't really need it to be gluten-free. But wheat and corn are common allergens for dogs and I feel better not giving them a food that contains them. I think there ARE better foods out there, especially some of the grain-free ones, but they're prohibitively expensive. We get Diamond Naturals for about $24 for a 40 lb bag.

I would seriously consider feeding Black Gold dog food if it were readily available but none of the farm stores in our neighborhood carry it. I brought home some samples from a field trial once and my dogs adored it. The ingredients appear to be high quality, also. But I would have to go way out of my way to buy it.

I have two female German Shepherds and rotate them between Taste of the Wild and Wellness Core. They do REALLY well on both of those dog foods. Kind of like you'd mentioned earlier, the very first dog I had, I fed Purina to because I did not know any better. That poor dog had so many skin problems and stomach problems and we ended up having to have her put to sleep due to health issues that could not be resolved. She was just miserable. That was 10 years ago and I have learned a lot since then.

I don't feed my dogs any foods with grains in them and I feed them a higher protein diet. I've noticed that they seem to have MUCH more energy, they shed less, coats are shinier, stomachs have been solid, eyes are clearer, and (knock on wood) I haven't had any health problems with either one of them since I got them both four years ago. Zoe is 7 and Raven is almost 6. They still act like little puppies! :D

I really really like the Taste of the Wild and I like that it has different protein source options too. I'd definitely reccomend it! Another grain free food I've tried with them and they really liked was the Solid Gold Barking at the Moon food. It actually says Gluten Free on the bag! lol

At 4:30 every single day, my two girls are sitting at my feet whining to eat!! lol I guess the grain free food must be okay!

He has been eating this since Nov. 21st. I ran out of his other food and started him on this cold turkey. He really likes it, but I did notice him having loose stool at the beginning. I'm not sure if it has resolved yet or not. He seems allright now though.

My dog eats EVO grain free. He has also eaten Orijen grain free. Both are great. Our store says those two are the best brands, though they do carry the one you are considering. I find that grain free is the way to go.

My 19 year old cat started refusing evo a couple weeks ago. No idea why. She can't afford to miss a meal so we are trying everything. Mostly she is eating tuna, ham, evaporated milk and water. She had become so thin her back bones were really pronounced. I thought we were going to lose her. Now she is gaining again. The litter box looks normal and she is still jumping up into the window sill and onto the furniture.

I drove all the way to the city for the evo...... now I don't know if she was just sick (bad hairball?) or if there was something off about the food. I know she will not eat regular grocery store cat food.

Does anyone have a good home made cat food recipe?

    • KathleenH, I swear by MatteosPizza and they make National Delivery. I have been known to buy them by the dozen. https://www.matteospizza.com/ BellaMonica's is not a bad corn based crust.  By not bad I mean "suprisingly good" that can be bought at most grocery stores. Here is there ZIP locator page to see if they are carried in your local area. http://glutenfreepizza.typepad.com/gluten-free-pizza/where-to-find-bella-monica.html I hope this is helpful. posterboy,  
    • Hey all--have Hashimoto's and am being worked up for epigastric discomfort and IBS like symptoms---   My blood work had an IgA within the lower end of normal range, negative TTG, but weakly positive DGP.   My endoscopy showed a "nodular" duodenum with the biopsy stating there was "reactive lymphoid hyperplasia"...   I have a follow-up with the GI in 3 weeks.   Wondering about any help?
    • DH wasn't linked to celiacs until 1967 from my research...
    • I was at a used book sale yesterday and happened to see an old dermatological textbook.  Of course the first thing I looked up was dh just to see what it had to say.  What I read shocked me as well as scared me half to death. The description of dh was right on, severe itching, blistering, bilateral, arms/elbows etc. but there was no mention at all of celiac, wheat, gluten or anything along that line.  The reason they gave for the cause of dh was "a manifestation of an internal cancer," and later it said it results from cancer, usually cancer of the ovaries or one other that I can't remember.  Being a hypochondriac, this was about enough to put me into cardiac arrest. I looked at the publication date and it was printed in 1963 which really isn't all that far back.  Has anyone else ever heard of this?? I thought by 1963 they were quite certain that dh was a form of celiac or did it come way after that? Sorry if I'm freaking anyone out by asking this.  That's not my intent at all, but since cancer is one of my biggest fears I found this rather unsettling.
    • Feeneyja, This will be a little long but I will  try to be brief as possible. See this discussion thread that talks about how Pellagra is often diagnosed as other disease's today because doctor's rarely recognize it today in a clinical setting. Pellagra's is described as the 3 D's if you don't count the 4th D of death if it goes long enough and is not diagnosed in a timely manner. Dementia (Neurological) Digestive (GI problems), Dermatitis issues (Ezcema, Psorsias, Acne etc.) According to mdguidelines website http://www.mdguidelines.com/pellagra indicates that quoting “The diagnosis of pellagra is straightforward when the classic rash is present but may be elusive if there are only gastrointestinal and/or neurological manifestations.” And why I believe in many cases Pellagra goes undiagnosed today.  Because doctor's have forgotten how it presents. A longer researcher article about the neurological presentations of pellagra mention the many ways a Niacin deficiency can present itself. Here is the link https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cggr/2012/302875/ and I will quote some of the neurological/dementia related symptom's of an undiagnosed pellagra patient. "Mental symptoms were wider than dementia, in that depression, fatigue, psychomotor retardation, mania, obsessions, and a whole range of psychoses with auditory and visual hallucinations were well described, along with personality change and sociopathic and drug and alcohol addictive behaviours. Panic disorders were seen as was a general inability to deal with physical or mental stress. Poor brain development such as hydrocephalus or cerebral palsy was also common. Acute delirium or even coma occurred, with some patients having myoclonus and other extrapyramidal signs reminiscent of the spongiform encephalopathies. The dementias of pellagra included features akin to Lewy body, Alzheimer’s, frontotemporal, vascular, and prion diseases. Parkinsonism was also common and a festinant gait was first described in pellagrins. Tremors of various descriptions, including asymmetric rest tremors, were noted and some patients had typical paralysis agitans. Pellagrins had a characteristic expressionless facies, so some signs of parkinsonism were present in most cases. Many features of pellagra closely resemble the nonmotor aspects of PD. The neurological manifestation did not stop there because other degenerative conditions, such as an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like picture, were described, with fasciculation of the tongue and upper and lower motor neuron signs. Cerebellar syndromes occurred and vertigo was frequent. Headaches, sensory and pain syndromes, epilepsy, and involuntary movements were noted as well as sleep disturbances. Cord lesions were also seen, as was optic atrophy, so there were multiple sclerosis (MS), like variants." It is me again. You can see the neurological symptom's of Pellagra are severe and wide ranging. Taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can alleviate many of these symptom's if your daughter has subclinical pellagra and the doctor's don't know to look for it. I had deep depression for many, many years and I shudder to think now that only a Vitamin could of helped me 30+ years ago and the doctor's didn't know to look for it. Shoot it isn't just Niacin.  All B-Vitamin's help your stress levels.  IF you have stress B-Vitamins can help your stress levels. I take Folic Acid for Blood pressure problems and it keeps my BP with in a normal range. A article on celac.com discussed this topic in detail a few months ago. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html I hope it is helpful.  Good luck on your continued journey. If you have never heard of Pellagra you are not alone. Dr. Heaney discusses why this is so in his online article Pellagra and the 4 D's. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ If you don't have time to read the whole hindawi article I also suggest this shorter but informative blog about why a Niacin deficiency can cause dementia related conditions. https://pellagradisease.wordpress.com/ Then decide for yourself and your daughter's sake to decide whether to take Niacinamide or not to see if it helps the D's symptom's she is experiencing (Digestive, Dementia etc.) The International Journal of Celiac Disease makes note of this in their research that Pellagra could be contributing to symptom's being diagnosed as Celiac disease today instead of a possible (co-morbid) Pellagra that causes the same symptom's. When they discuss how Pellagra and Celiac disease are related (Co-Morbid) in a Celiac diagnosis are surprised to find that in 58% of Celiac's -- can also be diagnosed with Pellagra. See this link http://pubs.sciepub.com/ijcd/3/1/6/ Quoting 3. Pellagra and celiac disease "The two diseases can be connected in two aspects. 58% of pellagra patients were shown to have malabsorption and many had intestinal pathology on biopsies [36, 37]. Alternatively, Pellagra was described in celiac disease [38]. The skin manifestations in pellagra might have some additional etiologies, since multiple nutrient deficiencies are at the origin of the cutaneous manifestations in celiac disease. The following nutritional deficiencies inducing skin rashes, were describe in celiac disease: Zinc, Iron, Vitamin A, E, B12, niacin, folate, selenium and essential fatty acids [39, 40]." If one is being diagnosed incorrectly the other co-morbid conditions can continue to cause Celiac like symptom's. But if the majority of those who have been diagnosed as Celiac could be helped by taking Niacinamide I see no you reason you shouldn't try it. Or at least research it some more. Again good luck on your continued journey. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. Posterboy by the grace of God,
