Default Switching food to help with gas problem

What's a good dry dog food to switch our 5 month old to to help with gas? She is veeery gassy.
She's currently on Fromm Large Breed Puppy.

I feed my dog Orijen and that does not give him gas. When he had gas, I find that it comes chewing toys, dental chews or chewing rawhide.

I'm thinking about going with this Science Diet LB Puppy food when we take our pup home soon. I'm still doing some research though.


Puppy Large Breed - Dry


That 'Blue Buffalo' is in the running too. I see S.D. has corn a few down the list for ingredients. That Fromms('Puppy Gold') seem like some good stuff too.

Science Diet is TERRIBLE food.

We feed Wellness Complete. No gassiness.

I feed Fromm LBP no gas. Maybe try one of their grain free?

I agree with BowWowMeow, Science Diet is not a quality food. Orijen/Acana is good or you can think about going to a raw diet.

Frodo had bad gas that completely stopped when we switched him to Wellness Core. Not sure if their puppy foods are in the correct calcium ranges for large breed pups though.

Is your pup a fast eater? I've read gas can sometimes happen when dogs eat too fast -- swallowing air along with the food.
