stinky gas!

help, my dog has had the worse gas lately, we get an occasional passing of gas here and there but lately, past few days, it has been all the time. i am talking 6-8x a day. his food or treats have not changed, he's eating same amounts, i have given him a tiny tiny piece of cheese, parmesean, very small amount today and yesterday and today, the size of a dime. i can't believe this would cause this awful problem. don't know if i should be concerned or not. any suggestions?

I have no clue if this applies to dogs or not, but people can develop lactose intolerance at anytime. Thus cheese=smelly gas!

I am sorry but it is funny. Unless it is in your house and yes my Lilly did this when she got hold of something she isn't suppose to eat. I gave her a multi symptom rolaid.

i type this as i am recovering from some billy gas while he is laying next to me on the couch-- i blame it on his cottage cheese as he always tends to toot afterwards (and why do i give it to him if this is the result???)

We keep a spray can of Lysol and a smell good one by the bed, and by the couch. FOR THIS EXACT reason. Sometimes in bed at night, Kona let's one of those UTTERLY NASTY SMELLING gasses... and hubby looks at me... *as if* and says.. can you excuse yourself next time? LOL then laughs and cuddles up by Kona and says.. it's okay, mommies butt does that scary noise sometimes... *as if AGAIN* but.. hey.... just goes to show you that men are in love with our little guys and gals even if they don't admit it! Enough to blame their WIFE for that rotten smell, over the cute puppy!
I would say it's the cheese too.

P.S. I absoultely LOVE your avatar pic!!!!!!!!

This sounds like my DS22. It's his exact same reaction to cheese.

My vet did tell me to avoid dairy as many dogs are intolerant.

Hope he's better soon

It's probably the cheese like others have said, but if it's REALLY odd, don't ignor it. Does he have soft stools? It's the time of year that he could be getting giardia (sp) possibly or some other tummy trouble. Just something to keep in mind. I know our little Maltese was having truly horrific gas, room clearing, and it helped us figure out some of his underlaying health problems.

Milo gets it too, silent and deadly. Thank goodness it hasn't happened too often lately.

Yes, I think its food related..most likely dairy or fiber. Dairy doesn't cause a problem here, but turkey? or carrots? or something she's not used to? Egads! Run!

I'm not sure how to fix it other than watching what they eat. Gucci has mastered the 'innocent' look, so I get blamed too! LOL
