Farting?

My dobe is farting a lot lately. And by a lot I mean every 15-20 minutes and throughout the night too. And it smells really bad.

He's been fed Iams puppy food from the beginning. And the problem started sometime after we gave him some rawhide bones to chew on. But he doesn't get them anymore and the problem continues.

What could be causing this? :confused2

Probably the high grain content of the food. Dog's don't really digest fillers well and gas is often a byproduct of this.

You might try Orijen. It really seems to be a very excellent food.
Also, give your dog some high-quality plain yogurt for a few days. It might help. But Doberfarts are infamous, and I'm not sure it's possible to completely stop them - you just learn to appreciate them. LOL!

Odin eats Taste of the Wild High Prairie formula with no grain whatsoever and hubby says he can be a real stinker some times.

[I have no sense of smell due to an old injury so I'm missing this particular "joy of ownership" aspect].................

We're now on Wellness Simple Solutions - one protein source and the gas is definitely more stinks more. However, now that we have solid poop on a consistent basis, I will take the stinky paint peeling scents that accompany the food

Believe it or not, she's also on beano 2x per day!
