Cats and dogs are by nature meat eaters. The wheat gluten in many commercial dog and cat foods is unnatural to their diet and may be harmful, contributing to chronic illnesses and degenerative diseases in dogs and cats. An increasing number of dog and cat food manufacturers are producing gluten-free varieties of pet food.
