Grain Free Buddy Biscuits for Dogs & Cats

It never really dawned on me that it would matter or not if the household pet was gluten-free.  This is most likely because we don’t have any pets.  The more I think about it, though, the more it makes sense, especially if younger children living in the house are gluten-free.  If a household is 100% gluten-free, it would seem that feeding the dog or cat food that contains gluten could be a potential for cross-contamination.


I received an email from Grain Free Buddy Biscuits for dogs and cats yesterday that made me begin to think more about this.  Read more about Grain Free Buddy Biscuits below:

  1. You’d think that with a blog called “Gluten-Free Cat”, my cat’s would also be on a gf diet, but they aren’t. I worry about cross contamination all the time as I feed them and then scrub my hands. I may need to check out Buddy Biscuits for Cats!

    • Heather,

      While I don’t have a pet, my household is not 100% gluten-free, so anytime I make food for hubby or my daughter, I am scrubbing my hands like crazy!

    As strange as it may sound, I learned that both I and my dog (who passed away last year) were having issues with grain in our diets. Storm had had chronic ear infections and been on and off antibiotics for the first 7 or 8 years of his life. After relocating and getting a new veterinarian, she recomended a change in diet and miraculously Storm never had another ear infection. We were both gluten free through the end of his life at nearly 14 years of age. Today, I don’t have any pets that are having issues, but I highly recommend altered diets and removing grains if you have a pet that is having chronic skin conditions (the same thing worked for a kitten I adoprted with food allergies causing no hair on her face) or ear infections. It’s a lot easier than antibiotics!!

    […] Meet Pippy!  Long story short – Aaron got an email from the humane society about this adorable Shih Tzu puppy and she is now ours!  Needless to say we have been a little busy, as she is only 3 months old.  Now I need to go back and read those reviews I did on gluten-free pet food!  […]
