Why does my dog have bad gas?

asked 2017-01-12 18:38:18 -0600

I think my dog is having tummy troubles. He looks like he might be in pain and passes gas that smells really bad. How can I fix this? Should I change something in his diet?

Food he is eating? Maybe try something with more wholesome, natural ingredients.

What kind of dog food are you feeding him? Is it mostly natural and grain-free? Check this list to see how the food you use compares to other brands: http://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/best-do...

If this problem has been persisting, I would call your vet and see what they recommend. If it was a once-in-a-while occurrence I would recommend giving your dog some pumpkin, which can help with tummy troubles. I usually freeze some in a Kong to make it enjoyable for the dog at the same time.

As mentioned above, it's highly likely due to diet what the dog is eating as well as their digestive system.

He could have a food allergy. Have to feed him the same food for a long time? Some dogs are allergic to chicken. Maybe try a food without chicken

Try a more organic based dog food. I find the best way to feed my dogs is to make up the food myself. It's a little more time consuming but you will notice a difference in their coat and energy. Google canine journal and home made dog food recipes. That have different recipes and their benefits and what daily percentage of each type of food your dog need to be their best! Hope this helps :)
