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?

    • Hey guys!  I have been suffering from NCGS for almost a year, and have recently been diagnosed with IBS.  Although I was finally getting used to the gluten free routine, this has been really hard to get used to.  I'm currently having a major flare, so I'm off pretty much all fodmaps (although mainly beans, dairy, nuts, and gluten). Additionally, my stomach can't handle more than a 1/2 cup portion per meal, and even then, I'll occasionally have pain after eating.  Does anybody have simple, fast meals that they could share? As if this isn't restrictive enough, I'm also allergic to eggs, so I'm pretty much living off smoothies, rice, and allergy free chicken sandwiches.  I know this is pretty restrictive, but I thought that if anybody could help, it would be you guys.  Thanks!  Claire 
    • Great advice everyone! So the envirokids gorillla munch by natures path is safe?. As for cinnamon Chex is that ok too? 
    • Alright, so I'm 3 months into being gluten free, And in terms of how I feel, the "best fit" line on the graph would be a very slow incline, which is good, but day to day, I would mark as all over the place. I don't understand. I pretty much do the same things every day, and eat the same things every day at around the same times, even in the same order. I cook all my own food and am super careful about CC. I even have my own pans, cutting boards, even my own sponge for washing my own aforementioned kitchen supplies. What I eat is very limited. I don't even do dairy, grains, or added sugar. (for now) Yesterday I actually felt okay. The brain fog was fairly thin, I felt more based in reality, rather than like I was in the matrix, on drugs, or in a dream. Today I'm back in the matrix again. I can't think, I have anxiety, I'm overly emotional, short fused, angry, and scared of my own shadow. This up and down for no apparent reason stuff seems to be the norm for me. Is this unheard of or somewhat common? It seems like how I feel is completely out of my control, and the disease just does whatever it wants. I know 3 months isn't that long in the usual recovery time frame, but I want to get off this ride. I just need to know if it's normal to be so up and down day to day during the recovery, or if I should give in to my assumed unfounded panic attacks and be worried. As a side note, I'd much rather have the typical gastro issues usually associated with celiac. Blowing chunks and crapping my pants constantly would be way easier for me to deal with than all the neurological problems mine manifested as. Ugh.
    • Ha, Ha!!!!!!  If I wouldn't get in trouble for practicing without a license, I would!     I get it because that is what they did to me for years.  I never had acid reflux but had enough other symptoms that all screamed Celiac but no.........they told me that my severe stomach pain might be acid reflux so take this script and go away. They never even tried to figure it out past the 10 minutes allowed for the appointment. I'll never forget one doctor that I pushed back on and told her I was not there for meds but to find out what was actually wrong and she got so mad she left the room and never came back. All they kept doing was trying to shove pills down my throat.   I am guessing that the procedure is the one where they tighten the sphincter muscle at the entrance to your stomach? I know so many people who had that done because it's become so common to push that if the meds aren't working well. Follow the money........ If acid reflux becomes that bad, then you have to start looking at food, period.
    • Here's a link that discusses Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (histamine intolerance) and recommended tests.  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/tag/mast-cell-activation-syndrome/ This article explains how POTS is related to MCAS. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3545645/#!po=35.0000 "In another clinical situation, Shibao et al. and colleagues studied a small cohort of patients who had evidence of mast cell activation as evidenced by elevated urine levels of N-methylhistamine after flushing episodes and who had orthostatic intolerance (69). Detailed studies revealed a profound hyperadrenergic response to standing characterized by tachycardia and hypertension consistent with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, or POTS. This phenomenon is felt to be due the release of vasoactive mediators such as histamine that act locally on sympathetic nerves; autonomic function was assessed to be normal in these patients. The authors have used methyldopa, an alpha-adrenergic agonist, with some success in these patients along with standard medications to block mast cell mediators. They caution against the use of beta-blockers, which may exacerbate mast cell activation."   Vitamin and mineral deficiencies often occur with Celiac Disease.  Celiac Disease causes malabsorption which results in malnutrition.  It's important to correct nutritional deficiencies after a Celiac Crisis like you endured with your gluten challenge.   Vitamin D is so important!  Vitamin D tells the mast cells to turn off histamine production.   https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4154631/ Vitamins C and E and B6 help, too. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21244748 The eight B vitamins are water soluble and need to be replenished every day.  Not enough B vitamins can make one grouchy (or seemingly an alien).  Just watch "Naked and Afraid" on Discovery channel.  The contestants who don't get protein (chock full of B vitamins) get grouchy, depressed, and irritable.  Some contestants have to be removed because their personality changes to the point they become dangerous.  This is a drastic example of vitamin deficiencies that develop over a short period of time, three weeks.  Now imagine having a subclinical deficiency over a long period and a slower health disintegration.   I lost my faith in doctors when my deficiency diseases were not recognized and addressed.  So, I used my food journal and the low histamine diet guidelines to get my inflammation down and my vitamins and minerals up.  Hope this helps.
