Many foods, including low-quality food with fillers and artificial preservatives, random table scraps, and too many snacks or foods to which they’re allergic can increase gas, so check anything that your dog is eating (food, treats) and limit or eliminate the following: low-quality proteins, meat by products, soy, corn products, cornmeal, wheat, fillers, dairy (milk, cheese, yogurt/ice cream) products, chemical preservatives, ash. Other fart producing foods are cauliflower, broccoli, any type of bean or legume, peas, beans, cabbage and bread. He may swallow too much air by eating too quickly, so a slow feeding bowl, meal dispensing treat ball, or more frequent smaller meals may help. Ensure you walk dog frequently so he can eliminate and isn't holding it in (brewing). Hopefully, your dog is being treated with prevention for parasites, which can cause intestinal problems & flatulence.

Eliminating soy products from your dog's diet may make quite a difference. Soy beans are loaded with proteins that can be hard to digest, producing a lot of gas in the dog's digestive tract. Find a dog food that does not contain soy. Giving your dog table scraps or changing dog foods can give your dog gas.
