does your dog fart horribly? mine did, but we figured it out!

Recommended Posts

The first time I bought a tub, I used a regular flavored one from Giant, don't remember the brand. But since i only use like a tablespoon or two in her food, it lasts a long time. So this time I bought one that I like (Dannon vanilla flavored, fat free or something like that), in case I need to eat it before it goes bad. It seems to be working just as fine!

 

I think its just about the probiotics, like you said before, so anything that has them should do the trick.

Alyssa- I give our dogs a teaspoon every day of plain yogurt. The brand I get is organic and I didn't do low fat.

 

Carly- I have a baby bulldog as you know and when we first got him, we continued to feed him the food the breeder did before we began to switch. OMG his farts were rancid. We've since switched his food and so much better. I've also read that elevating their food helps because they don't gulp it so not as much air gets ingested. Makes sense.

 

So we now elevate his food, soak his food so he eats it slower and give him yogurt. I haven't smelled a fart in about a week so yahoo!! Also, I have a bunch of pdfs on bulldog health, plus some great info on foods! PM your email addy and I'll send it to you if you want. :)

Oh and I meant to add that Amy is right- chewing prevents buildup so make sure Sugar chews on some toys or give her a good brushing. Brushing their teeth is hard to start when they are older so if you don't already do it, it may be hard to begin. I would just make sure she has something that stimulates chewing!

Alyssa- here's the info I had in my little puppy manual:

 

Probiotics

Probiotics are the good “friendly” bacteria that reside in our dog’s

intestinal tract and promote the growth of intestinal flora that help to

fully digest food. They include Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium

bifidum, and Lactobacillus bulgaricus, among others.

If your dog has had antibiotics, which destroy these good bacteria

along with all the bad bacteria, it is especially important to add them

back into the diet.

You can add plain (unsweetened) yogurt (look for multiple strains) to

your dog’s diet

or you can just get a probiotic supplement at your natural foods

store and adjust the dosage for your dog (adult human supplements

are based on a 150 pound human).

One brand I know of made just for dogs is Animal Essentials. It has

enzymes and probiotics.

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
