Stewing in....

dog farts.

Ollie was at school today, and I guess the turkey natural balance sausage gives him gas. A LOT of gas.

when I got home today, the power was out, we are in the middle of a pretty good storm. so I'm too cold to get out of bed and spray some lysol, but Ollie, is pretty much gassing me to death (fell asleep right next to me)!

I'm asian, and my BFF taught me when we were traveling thru asia to breath thru your mouth .

anyway, Ollie is totally passed out as he usually is after a day at school, and passing gas at an expontential rate. all day he's been gassy, and co-workers have been making cracks about him farting... 'you know that wasn't me right?'

just had to share the joy. It's pretty impressive something so small can stink so much.

it's a little better now, but he's still farting. just not as high of a frequency.
aren't dogs supposed 10x the sense of smell? can't they smell their own farts?

I agree with Linda. Change his food if his current diet is causing him so much gas. Doesn't sound like it's agreeing with him and probably making him uncomfortable.

It's not usual. I mean, he works for natural balance sausage, when he comes to school to work, and he's had the turkey before, and never had gas like that. it's not his kibble, it's his high value reinforcer for doing fabulous tricks for the kids at school, like discrete trials or counting but um, yeah, no more turkey sausage from natural balance for sure.

Barf....I used to have a Boston Terrier and they are notorious for their stinkiness, so I feel your pain! However, my Hav is pretty stinky too. I thought maybe dogs were just stinky, but maybe I need to change my Hav's food too....hmmm....I'm giving him Blue Buffalo Life Protection Chicken and Brown Rice right now, any suggestions for something different?

Brody farted a ton as a pup (the silent, but deadly type)...I called him Sir Fartsalot for a long time. ha ha Thankfully, he seems to have outgrown that, for the most part.

Hard to believe just a little bit of treat can cause that much gas, but I guess it can! I feel for ya! Hope it goes away soon.

I just put two and two together. it was raining hard all day today till about 2pm.

I always take him out for walks during recesses and lunch. but he wouldn't pee or do anything. I did bring a pee pad for back up. anyway working at a school, I do have meetings, and I usually leave him with another human, as I know he has separation anxiety. also my office is in a suite of 3 offices but I was the only at work today. I had to go down to talk to some teachers in the portables, so I was away from Ollie for about a 1/2 hour.
I don't he's been all alone since he was a pup. he threw up while I was gone. and was beside himself when I returned. It took about an hour for him to return to his old self. that's probably why his tummy was a little gassier than usual.

I have a lot of momma guilt of the separation anxiety bout.

I think turkey is supposed to cause gas. I've never had that problem with any of my dogs but one - a peke a poo! She used to get right up next to us and let loose!

About mouth staining - we bought a Brita water filter pitcher and only give them that and the staining is going away.
