OMG why so gassy!

does anyones dog out there get terrible gas on a whim? django has been eating canned for almost 2 weeks, same treats, a little cheese for his pills but tonight he is beyond gassy. non stop. if he isn't passing gas every hour i'd be surprised. we went to the vet for his shot and i know that stressed him out, i am thinking maybe his system went into overdrive due to the visit. why are they gassy some days and others not at all when their diet hasn't changed?

I think it is another one of those secrets, experienced Havs owners don't mention until we are lured in. Just like the poopeaters, I believe there are several "Jupiter, the mighty gas giant"s out there. Jack can clear a room in 2 seconds.

TTFN,
Pam

Yeah, canine gas is one of the best kept secrets till you own a dog.

Ollie can clear a room in 2 second flat as well. beef especially bad gas. I give him a digestive enzyme if he has beef and he doesn't get gas. I just don't remember all the time.

My female anatolian, Kara has a really sensitive stomach and emotional disposition so I always have digestive enzymes and probiotics on hand for her.

You might want to roast your own turkey if you aren't doing so already, to eliminate any additives in the prepared store bought meat. just a thought.

Geez, I don't think Augie has ever 'let one'! At least I wasn't nearby to experience it!

Poop eating - different story altogether. Although, that has gotten better. We just don't give him the opportunity!

he only gets a tiny piece of turkey with his pills so no need to roast. by the way for the poop eater, if you can mix pineapple into their food, when they poop it out, the smell of the pineapple is so smelly to them they won't eat their poop. saw it once on the "its me or the dog" show

Canned food has alot of water in it. It isn't as nutritious as kibble. Perhaps this is the reason for the gas. My dogs get one spoonful of canned on their kibble and none have had gas.

The only time Maddie had gas was when I gave her beef It was a bone from a pot roast looked yummie but it did not agree with her tummie.
My HD just said vegies and meat together cause gas.

In some dog grains can cause gas. Check the content of the food or see if he is chowing down at the bird feeder, Maybe for awhile several small meals. Sometimes dogs will clear their glands they don't understand not to do it in company, you won't hear it but you will smell it.
