Can dogs get gluten-sensitive enteropathy?

Our husky-lab-? mongrel has had liquid stools since she came home at about 10 weeks. After 8 weeks of the scattershot therapies typical of veterinary practice we eliminated Gluten. A week later she was better.

Irish Setters get gluten-sensitive enteropathy but it's supposed to be a relatively mild condition compared to human Celiac disease and it isn't usually diagnosed until about age 6 months. So maybe it's just something that looks like GSE.

Fortunately losing wheat is not a big deal for a carnivore ...
