Can a cat get celiac disease

Can a cat get celiac disease?
Yes, cats can get celiac disease (gluten sensitivity), although it does not appear to be overly prevalent amongst cats experiencing signs of gastrointestinal disease such as diarrhea and vomiting.

Diagnosis of celiac disease requires intestinal biopsy and response to an elimination diet (removal of gluten from the diet to see if clinical signs improve).
