Not sure about if recent bloat is an added risk but yes the gas is normal,lol I have personally started two threads on this because it was insanely smelly and overwhelmed the house literally. DH wanted to hang car air fresheners on their tails,lol it was really really bad and lasted a few weeks. They both eventually got over it in 2 or so weeks so the end is near. Going from a crappy food to a higher quality food is definitely a shock to their system, but good food reduces the risk of bloat so stay the course and be patient. Invest in some febreeze for now:D

It was so bad my dogs were leaving the room they farted in abandoning me with their smell. They would literally look at each other, look at me, and roll out:D Have you ever seen "Diary of the Wimpy Kid" with the cheese touch- well my kids ran around giving each other the fart touch- it was hysterical for awhile around here. I promise it gets better each day, but yes is the most rank messed up smell in the world- maybe try dutch ovening one of them?:D

I agree if in a month or so the gas does not cease try a different food. I'm just saying an adjustment period is very normal and not something that should alarm you even though I know the smell is alarming,lol. My dogs have less gas on TOTW then they did with BB and Orijen. I rotate with Orijen and TOTW and now they have normal gas and not all day constant flatulence that smells like rotting flesh and rotten milk combined. In the end it is what works for the dog ultimately, but give it time:)

Gas is normal when transitioning dog food NORMAL and not a sign the dog can not tolerate the food. If the gas persists for a month or so then yes, but a few days? Not at all worrisome. When I switched to Orijen you gave me the same advice, and guess what? Both eat it fine with no problems, great coats, nice firm poops, and no more gas:)
