    Hi Amanda, looks like you already got awesome advice, we also give our guys plain unsweetened yogurt in their kibble in the morning, and we also add 1 Tbsp. of apple cider vinegar to their drinking water everyday. They still have gas sometimes, but not nearly as much as before. We switched them to Fromms Beef Frittata last year.

    Gassiness, at least in our house, for my bully means that a certain food is not agreeing with him. For example, if I give him cauliflower, he will be gassy all night. When I was feeding him Orijen six fish, he was constantly gassy but once, I switch him over to something else, the gassiness stop. So definitely check his diet and see which is the culprit. I hope this help.

    I agree, if he's always gassy then likely he needs a different food.

    Agreeing with Susie, sounds diet related...even a bite or two of people food (pizza, cookie, etc)
    could do it, store treats containing grain or certain protein that doesn't agree w/them. The Nutro
    might be fine but the protein source might be wrong...for instance, are you feeding chicken Nutro,
    then you might try lamb Nutro or Bison Nutro. Many bullies are sensitive to chicken...it makes Cami
    have terrible gas! She is now on TOTW Bison & Venison and has no gas. If she gets pizza, cookies
    or occasional bite of chicken...terrible, stinky gas!

    Sorry...in trying to help, I went to your profile page where it still states you feed royal canin.

    RIP beloved boy.

    [QUOTE=Gordosmom1212;452583]He is not on royal canine, he has been on Nutro Grain Free food for 6 months. I'm going to start and try yogurt tomorrow.

    Your profile page states you are feeding royal canin, thats what I used trying to help
    figure out the problem. It IS something that does not agree with their gut. Perhaps
    changing the Nutro protein~meat choice~to different one?

    Punk is on Royal Canin and has not had any problems with gas, Mickey is on a special kidney food and he does fine unless he eats some of Punk's RC, then he clears the room . . .

Maybe i will have to do it more often now.

    Just because someone WORKS in a pet store, doesn't always mean they know what they are doing! Have come across THAT many times.
