Very Flatulent/Stinky Stinky Pup !
We're feeding our 4 month old Dobe Blue Buffalo, Large breed puppy food. Not only is he very gassy, it is also an extremely stinky gas every time. It has our friends running for the hills haha.
I didnt think much of it, i just assumed the type of food was making his stinky and that the gas was from changing him from Acana to Blue (which we did do very gradually). But it has persisted and its starting to make me worry about a digestive disorder.
Anyone experience this? Is it dangerous?

Edited to add: I would not preclude a digestive disorder of some kind, but it seems more likely that the specific food itself is not agreeing with your pup. If you are truly concerned, bring it up with your vet! Otherwise, try experimenting with different protein sources and grain free foods.

Roman Groom: Yeah, and he's not too fond of you. What's wrong with robots?
The Doctor: It's not the robots, it's the people. Dressing them up and giving them silly voices. You're reducing them.
Roman Groom: Yeah. Friend of mine, she made her domestic robot look like a dog.
The Doctor: Ah, well, dogs. That's different.

I'd say try switching food. Like Desy said, dome dogs do well on one food, but not another. For example, all three of mine had horrible runny poops on California Natural. My Rattie developed acute pancreatitis on another brand, and my mutt developed horrible dandruff on the same food. I recently had them on a lamb-based food, and man, oh man, I was about ready to go to the Army Surplus store to buy a gas mask.

Blue Buffalo was a no go for us. Taste of the wild lamb stopped the gas and runny poop. My girl can't do chicken as we found out by trial and error.. Hated the error part...

My girl was on Purina Pro Plan when I got her from the breeder. I kept her on it through the first month or so and she had horrible gas. I switched her to Blue Buffalo Wilderness grain free and she still had gas.
She did well on Blue Buffalo except for the gas. I decided to switch her to Wellness and she did not like it at all. I slowly switched her over a 4 week period and she had runny poops almost the entire time.
I decided to switch back to Blue Buffalo because she enjoyed it so much. She went back to having solid poops, but she still had gas. I guess she was about 6 or 7 months old and the gas problems just stopped.
She is almost 11 months old and still on Blue Buffalo grain free adult and she continues to do well and no gas.
I'm not sure if it was her system or she just got used to it, but thankfully, she doesn't have the problem anymore.

Before running to the vet and spending money on tests, I would simply change his food. This sounds like a typical response to a food that does not agree with his system. How did he do on Acana and why did you make the switch? I think Acana is a better food overall than Blue Buffalo.
