EVIL evil dog farts... Toxic!

So, Sookie has always been kinda gassy. Fairly silent and putrid. The past week or two, however, those farts have become loud - like, embarassing "was that on tv?" loud. I wouldn't hesitate to call them "juicy." And the smell. It is lethal. Like, could be weaponized. The windows are open and the febreeze is in hand. They are happening every two minutes or so. No diet changes, no new treats, nothing much changed. Except she has just started going into heat. Could this be the cause? Or is this just a new fun and exciting development that will be permanent? I have never had a dog that farted like this before.

When Cafall was gassy I found it was caused by the type of kibble he was eating. Perhaps try changing her food and see if that has any effect on it. I agree though, some dog toots are lethal! lol

My kitty's fart woke me up once. She's 9 pounds full grown.

She is on dry food, turkey and rice, I believe it is 30% turkey; originally she was on chicken and rice and that did not work well so we gradually changed it to the turkey and rice. I have heard lots of people have had success with salmon and potato?

It was Burns (didn't agree with her at all) and now it is Wainwrights - she used to have runny stools on Burns but they are pretty firm on Wainwrights. This really bad farting is more recent than the food switch which is why I was wondering if it could be from her going into heat. But I'm willing to change foods if that is the more likely culprit!

Hmmm... It has a lot of brown rice. That might be a cause. Try giving a tablespoon of plain, nonfat yogurt with the food and see if that helps.

Would salmon and potato be better? It sounds like people have had good luck with that... I will get on the yogurt tomorrow! You think definitely not a going into heat thing then?

Digestive enzymes sometimes help with gas. Look up "Prozyme" on Amazon -- it's a very reasonably priced product. Start with a small bottle, and see if it helps.
