    Default Anybody else have really stinky farts on Grandma Lucy's?

    So we are in the process of switching over to Grandma Lucy's turkey. He kept throwing up the Acana because they were so dense and he wanted to zoom.

    The plan is to do a combo of this and add another low ingredient kibble after a month.

    I wanted to know if anyone else has tried this food and the dog farts are worse and super smelly. They are so bad we are thinking of kicking him out of the bed at night. If it keeps up I'm not sure if this food will be a keeper.

    That's right, blame the dog.

    Not familiar with Gma's.

    and...what does this mean? "they were so dense and he wanted to zoom."

    saving as many as we can for the sake of Bullykind

    kinda funny but,,,, havnt tried this food (been thinking about it) but i 'think' that with change of food, this often happens with some. I give Hank the fermented sourKraut and mostly!!!!!!!!!!!! he doesnt do 'that' lol We use the Kindly, and preference, (adding our own protien) and sometimes the honest kitchen with the turkey IN it as well. There are still times when he can give us the desire to 'boot' him out of the room, (his dad likes to sneak him weird stuff as well and we sometimes pay for that!!! ) I know that thats a great food, and mabie just adjustment time??? and theres the pro and pre biotics that help.... applecider vinegar w/the mother, pumpkin.... ummmm let me see, thats just off the top of my head..

    Acana has larger kibble with lots of protein content so they digest slowly. So the size along with protein content made them stay longer in his stomach. He has a tendency to run around after he eats. So the kibble in his stomach and exercise made him throw up.

    I see. Yes, the Acana is hard, dense and large. That's what we feed our guys. I wish it were smaller. Pippy gobbles her food and has twice choked on the Acana so we use a slow feed bowl. Some may recommend probiotics for the stinkyfarts.
    Have you considered feeding 3 times a day and smaller portions so Fezzik's stomach is not so full?

    We have actually broken his feedings into 3-4 times a day as it helps time his bowel movements. He hates going potty in winter.

    The smaller feeding of Acana didn't work. Neither did soaking. So although he did well skin wise the throwing up wasn't good for him.

    I'm going to wait a week before adding other things in. It could be his digestive transition especially from a dry to a wet food. He is just so smelly and likes to sit on me so you can imagine how that goes

    Oh Kim you're being a farty pooper with the farts. Farts are funny. But I know where you are coming from. Have you tried a probiotic by chance?

    And as @Vikinggirl reminds us that boys fart and girls "fluff." But I'm sorry Vikinggirl...my Jewel farts too. Some with noise and some without. And when Bentley and Jewel are laying next to each other...I can tell which one farted because Jewel always gives me a look. I tell her it is better out than in little girl.

    Farts and poops are very important for bulldog health.

    Earthborn Holisitc is great as far as handling the fart situation. If I add anything extra though they both let go all night. So bad I'd rather sleep next to an open cesspool !
