    Great thread title, right? But anyway, I have an english bulldog who will be 8 in 2 weeks. She's my baby girl, BUT she farts like nothing I have ever smelled before. It was enough to peel paint from walls. I tried lots of things - pills, medicine, whatever was suggested to me. Well, we finally figured out something that works! So I figured I had to pass it along to my BDW peeps. We switched her food also a few times trying to correct it, but nothing seemed to be working. What finally DID end up working for her was to cover her food in water (like enough to make it kinda soupy) then put a scoop of yogurt in it and stir it around. We let it sit for like 5 minutes or so and then let her eat it. An even better result was that she LOVES IT! Like dances around like a crazy puppy waiting for it. And no more farts! Problem Solved!

        I think it is. It was getting so bad that we coudln't even keep her in the rooms with us at home. We were always kicking her out cuz it was horrible! So I googled it and got a bunch of returns - some we had tried, others I wasn't going to try. The two that i am using (adding water and yogurt) seemed easy enough to test out. And I swear it was almost instantaneous. No more farting. You might her her toot, and you go to cover your face real quick, but they don't stink! It's awesome. She's like a new dog.

              Holla. Let us know if it works for you. I kept meaning to post this when we first did it, and it's been about a month now and still working. So I think we fixed whatever was wrong with my Sugar bear.

                i'll let you know. she's not big on eating her food so it might help with that too.

                  Wow, I never would have thought that water and yogurt would work! Nixon used to fart all the time, but since he's been on the raw diet, he has maybe farted once (in like 9 months). It's pretty amazing.

                    Great advice, we solved our issues with a change in food.

                    My only word of caution - brush your babies teeth! Hard food helps clean a dog's (or cat's) teeth, by soaking the food, you'll have to be more diligent with teeth cleaning.

                      Carly - do you use Greek yogurt? regular plain? low fat or whole milk? (i am a detail freak -sorry!)
