Pro Plan Chicken=Terrible Gas

Foxy eats Pro Plan Chicken, we attempted to try beef and the gas was terrible.(Just thinking it was because we changed flavors) Glad to see this poll because I am now gonna try the PP sens stomach/skin. Because it is awful!!!

Guinness is on Chicken and Rice. Some days he has house clearing gas, but most others nothing.

several years ago, we had a horrible recall of most dog foods. PURINA was the one NOT RECALLED.

ive used SS, for many years, dogs are healthy, great coats, no stinky gas.

When Dreizehn was on regular Pro Plan he had pretty bad gas.

No dog is at fault for being born into this world.

I tried pro plan. Terrible food=terrible results. We talk about bad kibble IMO anything made by purina is garbage. I'm surprised to see so many feed it regularly. Glad it works for some dogs. Just not mine.

I feed Wellness Ocean CORE. Excellent results.

I tried Pro Plan once in a pinch and the dogs had huge stools with lots of gas. I ended up throwing the food away.
I am glad so many dogs do well on it because it is an affordable choice. I would not personally bring it (or any Purina Products) into my home again.

Hi. I'm new to this forum website and inquiring for some advice.
So I've read this entire thread, I'm relieved to know my dog isn't the only one with gas issues. I've been on PP Shredded L&R and its time to switch due to the gas and soft stools. Perhaps this could be as easy as switching to Sensitive Stomach or as difficult as switching brands entirely. I'm no food nerd, so what to switch to?
My (current and first ever) Doberman is now 9 months old. My budget is tight enough so I can't afford high end (Blue Buffalo etc.). By choosing dog foods I'm aware of the first few ingredients are the make up of the dry diet and I have been avoiding the cheap corn fillers. I don't feel comfortable feeding raw or canned (soft) diets due to my lack of experience owning a large dog. I'm open to all opinions and individuals knowledge. Please post your thoughts.

Welcome to the forum

There is no "one size fits all" food. I wish there was, it would make my life so much easier in veterinary practice! Personally, I believe in feeding whatever the animal likes and does the best on.

I tried a lot of different foods, including grain-free and holistic, but my dog just had soft stool and gas on it. Went back to Pro Plan shredded chicken, and poops back to normal and no gas. *shrug*

My advice would be to buy small bags of different foods and really monitor stools and gas, and just see what agrees with him and what doesn't. Good luck

Finally a break through!

Just an update! I experimented with various foods. Apparently it's the rice ingredient that was the problem. So he's switched to something without any rice in it and he's doing just fine. The downside, he is on a grain based food. But I'm on the lookout for a food that I can upgrade to that doesn't have the rice. Thanks for ya'lls help

ProPlan Shredded Lamb for two gas; other one - a little gas but both dogs have way less than before and the volume of poop is about 1/4 as before and no grass eating.

My pup was on pro plan focus large breed puppy. Recently switched to totw and I am very happy with results. Price wise it's actually a little cheaper than pro plan although you get 3 lbs less I prefer the higher quality kibble. Poop is firmer, coat looks like great .
