BURPING & gassy

Auzzie is a 3 yr old intact male. He is the gassiest dog I have ever seen. He is constantly burping or passing gas. We've tried different foods with him, that doesn't seem to affect him. We're currently feeding him canidea. Just last night, he burped and it actually became part of my dream until I woke up and realized the whole room stunk. It really is absolutely awful, anything we can do to help cut down on the excess air??

Thank you!

Stacey

Re: BURPING & gassy

What else are you giving him? There are things that you wouldn't think, that can give gas, ummm...like cucumbers. (just an example, but if you describe your routine with your dog, people will be able to pipe in and give advice).

We feed him Canidae twice a day and usually keep water under him all the time. For treats, we give him a piece of cheese, yogurt or a graham cracker. He gets a rawhide bone about once every 2 weeks. That's really about it.

You could try a different food. While Canidae is high quality it isn't the only one out there and another one may have ingredients that don't gas up your dog. Innova, Wellness, California Natural, etc

Re: BURPING & gassy

WHile a scoop of yogurt is okay to give once in a while, giving that and cheese daily may be your culporit. Dogs generally don't digest dairy products well. Heck, people don't digest dairy well.

Stop giving any treats whatsoever for 4 or 5 days, and see if the gas decreases at all. If so, you know its the dairy products you are giving. If not, its the food, which would mean there is an ingredient(s) that your dog may be allergic too. THat will also be indicative in your dogs stool, i.e. how firm or mushy it is, color etc...

I'll bet its the cheese. A friend of mine uses string cheese as treats when training....the following day the dog has HORRID gas. Stopped using cheese as treats and began using partially dehydrated hot dog slices - viola - no more post class gas!

Re: BURPING & gassy

I'm going for the cheese as well....that, and anything really high in Carbohydrates. (Graham Crackers...?)

I know the smell of which you speak and it's not of this world.

Yes, it is an absolutely horrendous smell. Okay, cheese/dairy is OUT. We'll have to find another alternative for him. I'll let you know if it works AND if it does - THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!! :)

Re: BURPING & gassy

I would first take him to the vet to rule out a medical cause for this, before I started changing foods around and feeding yoghurt.
