    My Dog Farts Alot!!! Stinky!!!

    Ok so my dog farts alot!! lol. Its pretty dang funny. Sometimes they are pure death stench. I mean real real bad!! Its so funny too. Usually when he goes to run up the stairs he lets out a few at a time. We call them the machine gun farts. Sometimes he will sit right in front of you, look at you then let one rip. They are loud!! I digress.... Any ideas? We give him science diet food. He has always farted so we switched to science diet sensitive stomach but he is still gassy. We even got some pills for dogs to stop gas and that hasn't seem to help. Could it just be some ingredient in the science diet brand food? He doesnt eat his food fast either. Usually takes a few bites then does his thing then comes back to it. He is a super healthy dog too! Can run all day long. Not an ounce of fat on hiom

    What breed is your dog? I am asking because I have never had a dog fart as much as the American Bulldogs I have had. I had to switch foods many times to find one that helped.

    I have been giving a little tiny bit of plain low fat no sugar added yogurt to Olivers food each meal. It has helped a lot. Not only did he pass a lot of gas and super stinky but it had hang time. Often 10 minutes or so of gagging. He usually gets up and leaves the room with a horrified look on his face when this would happen. The yogurt helped. Also changing foods to a food with No Corn and no fillers. That is what I would try if I were you. I can smell your pain. LOL

    My suggestion would be to try a completely different food. There must be something in the Science Diet that he can't tolerate. Make a gradual switch to a better quality and I bet you'll be surprised at the improvement in the air quality in your house.

    I feel your pain, both of my dogs have the butts of death...the APBT mix will actually get up and leave the room, it drives him away...the basset looks at me like "what?" as I"m spraying air freshener...then he goes back to sleep.

    My past Schnuazer used to get up and run from himself, then look at his bum as to say "was that REALLY me!?"

    Teddie also stinks up a room a lot. At least 2-3 times a day and usually when we're going to bed. Talk about a great bed buddy. I've told him he'll get kicked out of bed the next time he does that. He put his bumm right in my face before just so I'd wake up and the sad thing is I woke straight up which only made him happy.. It was kind of hard to ignore though.. lol

    Yep, the APBT mix could gag a maggot...he is sleeping about 20 feet away from me and the rancid odor drifts over here...I'm probably going to die of lung cancer from breathing all the air freshener I spray at my desk here because of him...

    It's so sad how much I can laugh at a thread all about dog farts!

    My mom has told me it would be the last time he ever slept in the bed if he farted in her face. Teddie seems to only do that when he has to go out though.

    Ok now that I've laughed my bum off my day is all better!! oh the joy of dogs..

    In a totally unscientific study, I've noticed that deep chested dogs seem to have the worst gas. Especially boxers and dobermans. Maybe it's the lack of tail to fan the stench around.

    Beavis just burps. Sometimes right in our faces. I've never noticed him farting, though. Maybe they get lost in the massive amount of buttfur.

    Psh...none of your dogs have anything on my BULLDOG. They are the kings/queens of farting! Tank can not only clear a room...he can clear the house! I've found that a bland food that is low in grains makes him fart less. Merrick made him fart the most. Henry, my Japanese Chin, also lets fly with some mean ones...but since I have been feeding him Taste of the Wild...he's been farting less than when he was on Orijen. He still farts a lot when he's nervous.

    I would suggest Canidae...I have heard that it is good for the fart-prone dog...but some breeds will NEVER stop farting no matter what ya feed 'em! My mom is lucky...her American Eskimo dog never farts...or if he does, maybe it gets lost in his "butt-fuzz" as Lorina said about Beavis...

    Oh my goodness, I'm laughing so hard I'm crying. Carter is giving that look like "What the heck are you doing over there?" *wipes tears from eyes*

    Okay anyways...

    Carter use to have such bad gas it use to make me gag. Silent and deadly is the right phrase for his gas. I'll be sitting at the computer and all of a suddenly have to run to the window and open it because it was so horrid. I changed his food from Nutro to Solid Gold about 2 1/2 weeks ago and his gas is so much easier on the nose. He still passes gas, but it’s barely smellable. Try a different food. Usually Gas is a sign of food not agreeing with the stomach.

    until now, we felt so alone in our stinky prison... i am literally in tears laughing at the replies (and from the stench permeating from across the room as i type...)

    kuma is our 2 year old staffordshire bull terrier & we have been using the extremely high-quality food that the shelter recommended to us... i swear, if yogurt works, i'm going to funnel it into him right now. i might even add it to my boyfriend's food - the 2 of them are sleeping on the couch and keep waking each other up with their flatulence. *more tears* love stinks sometimes...

    I fostered a kitten last fall who had a major gas problem. He was so adorable and tiny that it was hard to believe that he was the source of the stench. He liked to curl up next to my face while I was reading in bed. And then fart, over and over again, while purring and staring deeply into my eyes. People who visited would think he was so cute -- until they picked him up and he audibly farted.

    (Oh and I did get him wormed.)

    My dogs do not have gas, but my husband does. Maybe changing his diet to better dog food and yogurt might help...

    OMG I am also laughing so hard I was crying and snorting!!! We found 2 Pitt bulls running around and have been trying to find their owners. The one puppy is about 4months and OMG does he stink!! He farts and my husband looks at me like I did it! He can clear our small apartment!! I have never had a dog that stinks so bad!! You can hear him fart. We have decided to name him stinky.

    ode to a fart....

    my omar is also a farter. Oh man...when i let him up on the bed, he always wheels around just in time to fart in my face....i have gagged so many times...it's so bad.

    On that note, i did change his food up. Switched to alternating canidae and avoderm. working wonders...the farting is letting up.

    Oh dear, I'm busting a gut reading this!

    All of my 5 dogs fart...the worse being Pearl our boxer. When she lets one rip you got to get out of there because the are so potent they make your eyes water! They are so loud too and it always gives me a good laugh because she always tries to smell her bum once shes let one go.

    Our other dogs make little fart noises but they dont really smell too bad.

    Maybe your husband would do better on something other than dog food.
