Question Gas- Out loud?

Is it normal for my Brody to pass gas out loud? and frequent?

Also, I have been feeding the same food all of his life.... Diamonds "chicken soup for the puppy lover soul" Lg. breed and I am thinking that maybe it is not working out for us b/c of his gas problem. I LOVE the price (I get it at a feed store) $32.95 for a 35lb bag. The reviews all stated it was a good quality dog food (no fillers).
I can not feed raw as I know some of the people on the forum will recommend. What is an affordable dry kibble that is also healthy? I know Doberman's cost a great deal and I am willing to spend what I need for my boys health. That being said, I do have three small children and one working parent. So, I needs something affordable.....Help please

what do you mean by "normal"? Maybe after three years I'm used to it - I guess I'd kinda worry were the toots to stop.

You need to go to the feed store or wherever you have dog food sold, and see what is available in your area. I know where I live, in NE Oregon, there is not alot available. At least a lot of what I see people feeding on this forum, is not here. I feed PMI Exclusive large breed. It is made with whole chicken and whole grain brown rice. Mine do great on it. I think I have seen one other poster who used it. I do know my dogs had bad gas when I added canned food to their diet. I have started making my own concoctions now. I put meat in the crock pot, a small clove of garlic, sweet potatos, green beans, corn, peas, diced tomatos, potatos, carrots, spinach, etc. I just let it cook all day. I add a 1/4 cup to a 1/3 cup to their kibble everyday. They love it. Their coats are beautiful, poop is firm and rarely any dober gas.

(Kindness and kibbles for everyone!Michele & Venus

It's kinda funny. My little guy does it occasionally and then turns around to see what the noise was! He acts all startled and then looks at me.

My Female is another story, she can literally blow the covers off and not even wake up! (some lady)!

If you mean "normal" as in to be expected with every doberman-NO. If a dog has ongoing issues with gas, you need to review what the dog is eating.

Murrey Dobe,
I agree. So my next question is: What is a good dry kibble that is affordable? Thanks for all your help.

Brody's gas is very, very frequent...I mean like 5x in 30 minutes.... Really stinky ones....

What is the main protein source in the food you're feeding? Is it actually chicken? I really like using grain-free kibble but yes it is more spendy. At least consider trying a different meat, like lamb or beef or fish and see if that helps. If not, try a different brand.

I have never had a dog who tooted out loud until Silas LOL... but it's definitely not that frequent! That's a sign that he needs a (gradual) change I think.

wow. Quincy has occassional gas, like his trot-toots - he'll trot down the hall and toot in synch sometimes. And then a not frequent room clearing one. Actually his gas has gotten much better since we've re-settled on Purina Pro Plan Performance. But there's never been no gas.

Audible gas? Sometimes, but not all the time. And definitely a lot less frequent (and not nearly as room-clearing) now that we've switched Tess to a primarily grain-free diet. I say "primarily" because she does still get some junk food-type treats.

I also hear a human-like burp or two just as she's finished eating. I take that as a compliment to the chef...

Max occasionally. Especially when he is running up the stairs. He will speed up like something grabbed his behind. After he stopped teething most of the dobergas went away. He tends to get more gassy if he has to many treats or people food.

Nismo has woken himself out of naps from exceptionally loud gas. If he's awake and he passes gas, he'll turn around and sniff--if it's a bad one, he'll leave the room.

Zeus was really bad not so much nosiy but he could peel the paint off a wall and did it alot as a puppy. He was on Canidaie and we switched him off it over time and he's now on Innova Large Breed Adult and his stew and he never drops bombs anymore.

I just realized reading your post how nice it is that he's not clearing out rooms with his gas anymore!

Arkus is notorious for stretching with his butt in the air and breaking wind. There have been times where it makes the sound of a human passing gas, but I'm not too worried about. He's always been a "gassy" boy, and we've fed him mid to high quality food.
