Digestive Treats: Gas Relief for Dogs

| 1 Comment

Your dog can clear a room with his gas, wake you from a sound sleep, make the entire family gag. It’s so bad, your dog leaves the room to get away from the smell. You need some gas relief for dogs.

There are many reasons for this that I’d like to go over before you go any fart-ther.

  • Short Noses – Short nosed dogs gulp air when they eat. This is one of the things that make many boxers and bulldogs the kings and queens of the category. Options: Use Food Dispensing Dog Toys or Anti-Gulp Dog Bowls to eliminate the gulping.
  • Too Much Food – If you feed more than the dog can digest, gas results. If your dog has chronically soft stools but your vet says all is normal, this could be the cause. Try cutting back your dog’s meals by 10-15% or splitting it into another meal to minimize this issue.
  • Wrong Food/Treats/Chews for Your Dog – Like people, some dogs can tolerate some foods and not others. Doing a slow food change or skipping edible chews for a bit can resolve this issue. Use the treats listed below.
  • Eats Too Fast – Same issue as the short-nosed dogs and same fix: Food Dispensing Dog Toys or Anti-Gulp Dog Bowls.
  • Cannot Digest Well – Any dog can have this issue but Boxers and German Shepherds have a lot of it. Try some digestive enzymes. It can be a quick and easy fix.
