So we have taken in another dog and I swear her farts are going to kill us. She went to vet had a full exam. I have no clue what she was eating before she came here,I'm thinking little to nothing based on what the family was saying. Maybe Dollar Tree food. Anyway, I switched her over to 4Health and OMG the gas. We litterly had to crate her in another room it was so bad. So I called the vet and he says soy can cause gas so I switched her to 1/2 4health and 1/2 TOTW still gas,after a couple of days TOTW fully,still gas. What is a person to do? The vet says it may just be her system but its been a month now and its not getting better. How will I ever find her a home the way she rips them?:puke:

If you are using 4Health chicken and rice ... this "could" be the problem? My dogs got bad bad gas from that particular one. I switched to the 4Health lamb and rice ... and it stopped. There is no corn or wheat or soy in the 4Health. I also use TOTW Pacific Stream. Chicken causes gastric problems in my little ones. :/

Just a thought! Poor you and the dog!

EDIT: I just checked back on one of my posts as I had forgotten about the gas ........ and someone said to give a little plain yogurt ... like a couple tablespoons daily in the food and also someone else said to ask your vet about Gas-X.

Yes that is the 4health I was using. I was just doing some old reading and saw where other say Chicken could be the issue. Since she is on TOTW now how long do you think it would take to get it out of her system? It was so bad today I had to make her stay outside while I let the house air out,you could smell her farts even after she had been outside for 15 mins.My husband is about to kill me for taking her in. And my daughter has locked her out of her room. She can overpower the scent of a candle.

It took my dogs a few days ... but the frequency of the actual gas attacks got less and less as the days went by. I would get some plain yogurt to help the bacteria in her tummy!

EDIT: You don't suppose it is also a combination of stress from the move do you? I was thinking about that too.

I hope it works for you! I sleep with my dogs ............... it was nasty! Lol! :) Let me know if it works. Mine haven't had gas for a while now. If that doesn't work I would call the vet and ask about the Gas-X for sure!
