My Dog Vs. The Gluten Free Pretzel...

14 posts in this topic

So yesterday I was eating Glutino's pretzels. Dipping them in Nutella, in fact. B) My dog was watching me as always, since you know she's totally starved and never gets a thing to eat. ;) So I gave her a pretzel. (these are the thin stick-like ones, not sure if there are other kinds). She took it in her mouth and took it away to her bed to eat.

Later I was walking through the living room and there on her bed was the pretzel, with all the salt licked off. So I put it in her bowl. Later at dinner time it was still there. I put her kibble in her bowl and since we were out of wet food (sigh) I took a bit of peanut butter and stirred it all around so that all the kibble pieces had a bit of pb on them. Including that pretzel.

She ate her dinner and after she was done....there was that darn pretzel on the floor, licked clean of peanut butter! :lol: Do you think she is trying to tell me her opinion of gluten free things? rofl... She's never been known to turn down any food, not even carrots and green beans, so this is pretty funny.

That pretzel is now sitting in her bowl again (I forgot to put it there for breakfast) waiting for dinner. I went to the store today so she now has wet food. We'll see if she can separate that pretzel out once again. :lol:

I know this is a fluff post and maybe belongs in "food" instead of here in "coping" -- but, I find the story to be funny and I could use a bit of humor lately, with all the end-of-school-year parties and barbeques and church potlucks and baby showers that have occurred recently -- their seemingly endless tables of food, most of which I can't eat. :(

:wub: :wub: my doggie :wub: :wub:

I thought it was very cute anyway :-) Thanks for sharing it.

Have you tried explaining to your dog that going gluten-free will clear up her symptoms? Does your dog drool, chew your slippers, bark at the neighbor's cat? Could be a sign of doggy celiac. :lol:

And I bet there wasn't even a teeny bit of that pnut butter left on it.

This reminded me of a big yellow lab I had. He could gulp down a big bowl of stew and leave every pea in it licked clean in the bottom of his bowl. He wouldn't touch those peas but he would steal all the ripe tomatoes out of my garden when I wasn't looking.

I also reminds me of an Aunt I had whose kids always had to clean their plates. If they didn't they got whatever it was the next day for breakfast, and then for lunch and then for dinner.....

Thanks for the best laugh I have had in days.

Just shows us that the canine's taste buds are more evolved than ours. :lol:

I watched my friend's dog catapult a gluten-free biscuit so far across the back yard, I was thinking he could win a spitting contest.

It was like in a cartoon...I could almost see the PATOOIE!!!!! as it flew across the sky. :)

and PS...I think it works fine in the Coping section!

I had a mixed terrier that would carefully lick the dressing off of lettuce. My dog will eat gluten-free pretzels but he prefers the boys "real" ones.

My beautiful lab, Gracie always ate around zucchini in a bowl full of vegetable soup...why? She did not like zucchini, I guess.

I will never ever know how they can tell what's tasty and what isn't ...that silly dog once ate her way through a box of Snuggle fabric sheets. :blink:

I have an update in Dog vs. Pretzel. I mixed up her dinner in her bowl (dry kibble with a couple of tablespoons of wet food), then stuck the pretzel in it like a flag. I put it down in front of her, told her she could eat, then watched out of the corner of my eye. She picked out that pretzel and dropped it on the floor, then continued on with her dinner! :lol:

So I went over, picked up the pretzel, told her to move over, and slipped it underneath the food in her bowl. Then I let her finish eating. When she was all done the bowl was empty! woo-hoo! rofl. She ate it. Unless she's stashed it somewhere out of my sight. :P

    • I bought Spicely Organics Chili powder from Whole Foods in Bellevue, WA.  I got very sick after eating it, so I tested it with three separate gluten tests.  They all came up positive for >10ppm, which is what their "certification" says they test below.   I just wanted to warn everyone away from them.  They clearly have quality control problems and are not safe for celiacs.
    • It's no secret that nearly all traditionally brewed beers contain barley. The flavor and body barley imparts on traditional beers is partly responsible for their rich, full taste. Finding alternatives to barley that are suitable for brewing gluten-free beer has been a challenge. One solution has been to brew beers with traditional barley ingredients, and then use a combination of enzyme action and filtration to render a final product that test below 20ppm gluten required for gluten-free products.

    • First have you been tested for celiac disease? Any doctor can do the blood test but you have to be eating gluten on a daily basis for the test to work, nut much just a half slice of bread a day. You should get this tested, the high constipation, coughing stuff up was very common for me before diagnosis. The coughing stuff up for me was from a allergy that developed I did not know of, the mucus was draining down my throat and choking me at times, and was constantly running a fever and night sweats. I was constipated for 4-10 days average back then and drinking plenty of liquids did not help in the least. Your gut rumbling could be many things, celiac is one, SIBO is another especially with the bad breath. in your case it could be related to constipation causing rotting, fermenting, and bacterial overgrowth of the waste in your system. Now to deal with the immediate symptoms, your constipation is also a sign of magnesium deficiency, I imagine you might have noticed some other symptoms from these. Now normally I would suggest either the Natural Vitality Calm or Doctors Best which is easier on the stomach. In your case I straight up suggest the Natural Vitality Calm it is a Magnesium Citrate and works a bit like a laxative. Start with 1/4 tsp twice a day in a beverage, I like the orange or the cherry in a hot green tea or you can try it in a juice. Up the dose slowly over a periods of a week to the full dose or perhaps a little more til you get a bit looser stool.     You mentioned the mucus in the stool 2 things cause this normally. Undigested fats, and inflammation/irritation causing the body to produce the mucus to help defend itself and purge the irritants. A doctor can probably tell you more but I might suggest a digestive enzyme in the mean time. I like to use a super papaya enzyme before and after a meal, find them on amazon. Jarrow also makes full enzyme complex that can help. Other thoughts if your on dairy, stop, with the constipation, and other issues this is a equation for trouble and you can reintroduce it in a few months when you clear up and see if it bothers you then. The bad breath can be a sign of lactose intolerance/digestive issues with dairy also. If it comes you you have celiac then you would have your explanation here as the villi which produce the enzymes to break down lactose are damaged/destroyed first causing most to develop a temporary lactose intolerance which for some goes away after a few months of healing. B-vitamin folic acid, and niacin will be a huge help also with some things. but will we get into that a bit later feel free to look up Liquid Health Stress & Energy if you thing it might be relevant at this point it is what I use 3 times a day with another blend they have.
    • Some of your symptoms sound like my ulcers.  I take carafate before every meal now and they are much better.  I have 3 ulcers possibly caused by taking iron supplements.  They are worse when I eat spicy food and dairy. I might be wrong but for your sake I hope it's just ulcers.  They were found by endoscopy.
    • The yellow is probably fat you are not absorbing.  The pain could be from your intestines being inflamed.  Go see the gastroenterologist.  The ER did not help me with any of those symptoms.  Good thing it's clear so you know it's not your appendix or any other vital organ.  It takes time but probiotics, bone broth and  vitamin D and b 12 help. My pain was mainly my muscles giving out from the malabsorption.
