    Default Would u change your dogs....

    Food if they are an inside dog and they have horrible gas? He has a great cost and has great muscle tone and looks great but I work for the fire department with guys that sit around and fart all day so I can take alot of things but my dog could clear out a gym. He has always been on the same food. I recently added pre/pro biotics to his food but that should affect his gas getting worse I wouldn't think.

    When my dogs are on a high protien/high fat diet the gas is unbelievably toxic!! Everytime the let loose I'm expecting a HazMat team to come running through the door. When they are on a normal protien/fat level diet they do not have anywhere near the gas problems. So if your dogs are on a 30/20 type diet try feeding them a lower protien/fat diet and that may help

    We were feeding Eukanuba and the dogs had a bad gas problem. Friends would come over to visit and my CLM would go curl up under their feet and let loose. Silent but deadly. You would see people look at each other like " did you really just do that" with a return glance of "it wasn't me". We finally had to switch.

    Several months ago I switched to Native Level 3 for our 13 month old BL. Love it, keeps weight on, coat looks great and tight stools. But…..Damn can that dawg clear a room in a hurry. My kids start yelling, “Sound the alarm, Evacuate, Evacuate!” Cooper just sits there with a “Yea it was me” kind of grin on his face.

    Try going with a lower fat content food. When not in training or hunting my dogs are on a 27/14 diet.

    I have always heard that when a dog pases gas, it is because they have undigested food sitting in their stomach, causing the build up of gas, and of course the release of said gas.

    My dog thankfully does not have that problem, or I think my wife would not let the dog be around.....lol

    Teddy could peel paint from the walls on PPP, Euk, etc. I switched him over to a 32/18 grain free food. Made a big difference. Now a gas-mask is required only after he's snacked on some disgusting dead thing he found in the woods.

    What are you using Sonia?


    When dogs have that much gas, it's a signal that something isn't right.

    What a minute, if your spouse has gas do you make them change their food?
