Our new basset is passing gas like crazy. It is so bad that he can clear a room in a matter of seconds. Our vet can't get him in for a check up until nex tweek. I was wandering if it was due to his food. The rescue we got him from has him on Diamond brand dog food so I have staayed with that. But if his gas attcks are due to his food should I gradually change it? A co worker of mine said it was his food. But I don't want to change it without a good reason.
It can be. Georgie was on Eukanuba (sp?) for the same reason and the vet said to watch it since it sometimes makes dogs gassy. We ended up changing her because it did not agree with her and she does not have gas near as often. So I am sure it can but can't say for sure that is what it is. Did you ask your vet's office about the food you are using. My vet is real good about answering any questions I have.
I think that some particular breeds are just more gassy than others. I've got a boxer who can clear a room in a matter of seconds! It doesn't matter what type of dog food; believe me - I've tried them all over the last 5 years. It's just him. I even gave him Beano. Please don't try that - it wasn't pretty. Poor Scooby doesn't even know why we are all gagging. We love him anyway. Good luck!
Well, I can't speak for Frenchies as I've never seen one in person. I do love `em though I think they are just the cutest little things. Of course, I have a thing for all the erect eared dogs. Give me an Ibizan or Pharoah hound and I'd think I died and went to heaven.
a very wise vet once suggested i use brewers yeast...as supplements...they really work as I type this, there is a furry sleeping puppy under my feet...and let me put it this way....im trying not to breathe.....i just gave him a new can of food today, so yes, i would say it most deff is the food....
i know how bad frenchies can be ! i woke up in the middle of the night and thought the septic tank had backed up ! when my eyes adjusted to the light i saw this little rear end next to my face. my husband had already cleared out ! and i wasnt too far behind him.
