    Default Activated Charcoal?

    I'm still learning about my bd and I didn't see this listed anywhere, and I don't even know if this is the right area to post it lol. BUT- My Kai (2 yrs) has horrible gas, which I understand comes with having bullys =) The problem is more that she spends a lot of time in my in home office and stinks me out half the time, or makes me gag lol. She gets top knotch kibble and a great vitamin regimen so it's not that. I take activated charcoal for my stomach issues and when I'm feeling a bit stinky myself but wondered if maybe 1 charcoal cap a day or every other day would help break the gas a bit, or if there is something going on in her gut, help work it out. What are your thoughts? Have you tried it before? Would it hurt her to try? TIA!!

    My bullies get probiotics and yogurt, and NuvetPlus each day. They hardly ever have gas(either that,or I'm immune to it!)

    We started with top notch food and NuVetPlus and we were doing great but the day I decided to try a little dab of yogurt on her food as a treat we were rewarded later in the evening with a blast of gas that cleared the entire living room and probably took care of any pests living in the walls. So now the rule is if it ain't broke don't fix it. Our mistake may have been using regular plain yogurt and not Greek but I dread trying unless the need arises.

    I do the same at my house, and the gas smell has dropped significantly…

    Same here. @EnglishKai when you say top notch kibble, what brand are you feeding?

    @dolphin She gets the fancy gold bag of Fromm lol It's the brand the breeder gave her since she was a pup and said she did the best on it. The breeder did tell me she is considering switching to a raw diet and was going to let me know if she was going to buy it in bulk and then let me try some to see if it helps.

    Fromms has a four star grain free line that is better then just about any food out there. Sometimes the grains screw with these babies. Also do you give her yogurt? Some people use it to cut back on farts lol. I know how bad they can get and how it can make your eyes burn sometimes.
