The doctor doesn't want me to touch or use products with wheat. Since we plan on getting a dog that would include not touching most dog treats and dog food. What about dog treats that are only made with oats or barley? Has anyone had any problems when touching dog treats made with oats or barley? I know there are 100% liver treats, which I plan on buying but some dogs can't have too much purines. I thought of making dog biscuits from oatmeal but sometimes there isn't always enough time.

What dog treats do you use for your pet?

Lovely, here is another topic that I hadn't even thought about. Sometimes, I can be soooo dense. ;) Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

I'm pretty lucky, my dogs will eat almost anything that I give them. All they have to hear is the word TREAT, and they are all over it. :lol:

Thanks again.

Your very welcome!

P.S. When I asked the doctor if it would be dangerous for me to touch dog snacks that are wheat-free but do contain oats or barley, he didn't think that I needed to worry. ;):D

Why don't you just wear a disposable plastic glove on your hand while you scoop out the dog food? It's a lot easier than trying to find gluten-free dog food!

Thanks Sara, I already thought of that. But I need dog treats for training purposes. 100% liver treats are gluten-free but I wanted to have a few choices. Carrots work for some dogs and not others. Liver works for most but now some.

But there are a few wheat-free dog biscuit choices for those that need them. :D

The food we feed our pet is Purina Lamb and Rice. Therefore a dog can digest rice. Why not give him salt free rice crackers from your own gluten free stash?

for treats have you tried hot dogs? I have never seen a dog that wouldn't jump to the moon for a piece of hot dog.

Thanks for the ideas!!!!!!

I could try rice cakes too! Maybe gluten-free cereals but they do contain sugars though. I think the rice crunchies are low in sugars. I will try tiny pieces of carrots too! I like to use healthy gluten-free snacks in one of my dog's toys. It's a large cube that spills out treats as the dog pushes the toy around the floor with her nose. No pudgy pooches here, besides I want my carpet to be free of wheat. We do lie on the carpet from time to time.

    • I didn't mean my world fell apart because of celiac but because of something else. Finding out about celiac disease actually gave me hope.
    • @PosterboyOne thing is though I never get heartburn. And this only happens when I've consumed something for consecutive days, like I had the bananas and too many nuts. But if PH has something to do with it then maybe when I'm eating more vegetables and broth that's why I usually feel much better, it's more alkaline. On a ph urine test whenever I'm feeling like this I ALWAYS have a reading towards the acidic part. When I feel better it always goes towards the alkaline level and usually in the ideal level. Part of it started when I was under high stress in the first place. A few years ago. I couldn't eat as much/well because I was very worried about things. The realization about celiac came later but basically my world fell apart and I've fought but never felt really okay again. Then at the worst before I knew about celiac disease I was vomitting for days. Now I can eat many more foods but it's still very touchy if I don't strictly eat vegetables, broth, lots of water and small amounts of fats and protein. I'm scared to take anything artificial. I've only recently been able to take very small amounts of probiotics. Is there no way to repair your stomach acid without taking pills? Would going on a strict alkaline diet help?  I read everything you wrote except the link which I don't know if I can concentrate right now. Thank you.
    • I have seen this a few times....run a gluten free bakery....one of my previous customers has the disease, but he gawks at my prices and then goes eats from other stores and consumes gluten products.....I tried offering freebies left over items to get him to switch....been watching him degrade over the past 3 years. He now walks...odd like Frankenstein with locked knees and a wobble and seems be much less active not appearing at this job few days a month now....I do worry about these people. Celiac effects everyone different some violently, others do not see the damage or have grown so use to the issues that they consider them normal. It is a sad thing to see. I have seen improvement in my own body following a strict diet and regime and see major consequences when I trip ......I can not imagine anyone cheating but my reactions are bad with many side effects. Celiac being a AI disease can cause other secondary complications I am all to aware of if  you cheat, mess up.
    • I don't know, it's probably best described as a lot of bile, sometimes yellow, sometimes green (sorry) and a lot of mucus (sorry_) and when I eventually throw it up  (if it gets to that point) it's burning in my throat, so I equate it with acid. Also because of the term "antacid" I think of it as a lot of acid but I guess it's a lot of bile, mucus and I thought the extra stomach acid produced dealing with whatever food I ate. I've done the wrong thing though because now I'm in the pain I was dreading, with swollen eyes and everything and really bad depression now and hopelessness. I keep feeling like it's all futile and too late. That however hard I try I can't figure everything out in time to be well.
