    Default New Bully - bad gas?

    We are new to bulldogs. Just came home with an 8 week old puppy and he has the worst gas.... I mean it makes you leave the room it's so bad. I have other dogs but never ever have I dealt with nasty gas like this. He is on Nutro, which we were sent home with. I use eukanuba for my german shepherds. Any suggestions? I don't know if I just made a bad mistake or what, cuz I thought I would research what to do and I am hearing that they can have bad gas. I just don't know if I can have a dog that puts out like this, if you know what I mean. He's adorable, can someone help? I gag every time he farts. sorry, just being honest.

    to EBN!!! Well as I'm sure you could guess, this all begins w/the dog food!!! I had my bully on Eukanuba before I found EBN, and Winston had the most horrid gas I have EVER dealt with... Food is tricky w/bully's because of food allergies, but you can check on dogfoodadvisor.com to see food ratings. I put Winson on Fromms Gold Puppy, and from there we have transitioned to Fromm Pork & Applesauce. His gas issues are so much better now, and I don't have a lot of to deal with either!!! If you do decide to change his food, do it gradually... bully's tummies are very sensitive, and it could make things work. Good luck w/your new baby, and please keep us posted on how things are going!!!

    @Bodana I'm sure someone will give you great advice about the best food choice available in America You'll see his "lill" gas problem will get better when on food that suits him and maybe a slow feeder bowl so he swallows less air He really is so cute
    You were born with the ability to change someone's life, don't ever waste it.

    Whatever food choice, GRAIN FREE will help most if not all, gassiness.

    Feed & water out of glass or stainless steel bowls. Bullies tummies are
    very sensitive so make food changes slowly.

    RIP beloved boy.

    Definitely agree with the comments above! I went through a few foods before putting Winston on Blue's Sensitive Stomach. He's no longer clearing rooms with his gas (thank God). I feel for you!! Been there / done that

    I put Forde on nutro when I first got him, same with him, the gas was horrid....in time I kept stepping up to higher star rated foods ( not that Nutro is a bad food) , from nutro to wellness to blue buffalo and now Fromm......with each move he had less gas and much less smell.....honestly now, he hardly has gas at all and when he does it's not that bad.......

    Rocco had pretty bad gas when he was on Kirkland Signature from the breeder. Ever since he's been on Fromm's Beef Frittata (Which is Grain Free), he does not have gas anymore. There was maye one or two times that I belive I heard it but no smell lol

    We had the same experience with Mayhem when he was on Royal Canin. Once we switched him to Fromm (grain free), the gas became minimal.

    June has never had gas before unless she does it all day long when bf and I aren't home?!?! She does burp VERY loud after eating and drinking though. She was on Eukanuba puppy from her breeder when we brought her home at 8 weeks. We did a slow transition to Fromm puppy and now we are transitioning her to the Fromm Beef Frittata to hopefully get rid of her tear stains.

    Nova had this issue when on isms. We switched her to Nutro venison for sensitive tummies and the gas lightened up.

    In addition to a good food you can also give your pup some plain yogurt or Kefir which helps cut down on the gas as well.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.
