    Default Smelly Gas!?!

    Tess is over a year old and has the worst gas. Is there anything I can do for her or give her?? We feed her Fromm since she was 4 months old and has done well with that and we don't give her any dog snacks. Just carrots, apples and bananas.

    Well, she is getting a good food, so it could be one the the treats. Cut out one at a time to see which one it the culprit.

    First off, Tess is a real beauty. Very cute. I think all bulldogs have a delightful aroma from time to time. If she otherwise doesn't seem to be in distress, probably do what we do. Sit back and enjoy...

    Has she always had gas? If so, it might be the food (even though you're happy with it). If she hasn't, then as the others have said, eliminate treats one by one.

    Also, I've found that sometimes it isn't directly food or treats but, say, a doggie toothpaste or water additive that can cause gas. And, I'm pretty sure that last winter, whatever de-icer my condo put around the property in lieu of road salt, caused Chance to smell like rotting onions. (Usually, he is the least gassy thing in our house.) In that case, I doubled my efforts to wipe his paws clean after every trip outside so he didn't have to clean his feet himself (like the cat-dog he is).

    Basically, if they can ingest it, even if it isn't "food", it can contribute to gas (in my humble opinion).

    Your girl is super adorable!

    Every Bully is different. Even tho you are feeding one of the best that doesnt mean it's the best for her. What I would do is change the flavor within the Fromm line of foods. They are all interchangeable without doing a slow transition. This may take several changes to find one that is less odiferous for her. Don't hurry; give each trial a good month or more. If you dont find one that works for her within the Fromm line....try a different high quality brand.

    The gas can be a tough thing to overcome. All of the dogs I've ever had have had at least a little gas, but then again, what living, breathing being doesn't? Clara's was so bad no matter what we fed her there for a while that she wasn't allowed to sleep in our room. No kidding, it would wake my husband from a dead sleep, lol. I started giving her a tablespoon of plain canned pumpkin every evening (we free feed, so not in her food), and it worked like magic. She still toots, of course, but it's not nearly as rancid an odor.

    Which Fromm is she on. Is it grain free? That could be part of the problem if not.
    Also giving her some extra probiotic in the form of yogurt or acidopohllis pearls could help settle her digestion.

    Bingo! Now we're talking!! It's most likely the canned food. Anytime I give that as a topper (any brand) it's like a egg bomb went off! We just all laugh about it. Since we don't give it all the time I guess when it does happen It doesn't bother me so much. Even when we had a mama and her pups, We used to give a lot of canned food on top. Mama and puppies both had horrible gas!!! We stopped doing that and it helped --all of them!
