    Default Farting!!

    You guys are probably tired of hearing from me... ha ha ha.

    SO! When we first brought Remi home, that first night, his farts could clear a room. Then they just stopped, or became so infrequent it wasn't a factor.

    We have been training him with mini canine carry outs, beef flavor. Remi loves them but because we are feeding him so many for the training period, I really wanted to get him something higher quality.

    I JUST bought him new treats... The petfood's person recommended I give him Tricky Trainer's Chewy Liver flavor. Remi loved them. But here's the deal...

    He's taking a snooze right now.. and OH. MY. GOD! The farts he is ripping off are just unbelievable.

    I realize some foods are just going to make your dog fart more than others, but has anyone experienced just a temporary "farting" phase while the dog adjusts to new food?

    As always, thank you!

    I don't buy treats off the shelf anymore, I found out the hard way, they like a healthy snack just as well as a not so healthy snack. even ice cubes they may consider as treat. frozen green beans, fresh carrot, frozen peas, blue berry's all healthy treat, not as a meal. treats are just that, for training. or snack. hope this helps

    Usually happens when Herman gets new food - but last night he was farting for whatever reason with no change in food (I think his daddy slipped him some cheese).

    You might want to look into Zuke Mini Naturals and Blue Bits (from Blue Buffalo) for training treats if the Tricky Trainers keep causing the poots. These are both about 3 calories each and all natural so you can control the calories. Herman loves the peanut butter Zukes and the chicken Blue Bits. I dont think they caused Herman much gas.

    I think Zuke's treats are great and no nasty farts Since we have moved to Dublin to an all grain free diet. The farting has gone from "clear a auditorium" to "clear a couch"

    We tried liver treats for HRH.... P.U.!!!!!
    Also, if a food isn't right for your bully they will fart a lot more.
    We dont give store bought treats because most are crap. When Gracie deserves a treat she gets a few pieces of her regular food... Fromm Beef Frittata. She rarely farts now.

    When I have tried to give Dublin her own food for a treat...she just looked at me as if to say "shouldn't that be in a bowl with a whole bunch more?"

    When I first got my puppy he farted a lot. stinky. but I changed over to taste of the wild grain free and I was going to write in here the other day and say he NEVER pass's gas anymore. Now after learning my vet as well as many other people use Fromm's grain free and I have been mixing it in with his TOTW and still no farting but I did just notice what I think is a hot spot on his forehead.

    We don't buy treats anymore ... just use frozen green beans, baby carrots, frozen cauliflower and broccoli, banana slices, apple chunks etc ..... with all the worry over dogs being poisoned by chinese made treats i just figured that was safer!!
