Default Flatulent poodle!

My spoo is verrrrrry gassy! What are some causes? He's on authority lamb, my other dogs do great on this, but what am I looking for in a food to potentially nix this?

I think some poos are just like that... Remington burps after he eats, it is like a joke to him... He also from time to time will toot and just look at me and grin... It is enough to clear a room.

No, Conan definitely does it in excess! Lol not just after he eats, but it is throughout the day, can be hours after he's eaten and relieved himself. Does seen mostly at night and in his sleep though.

Well, looking at the ingredients, there are lots of grains (which are hard to digest) and corn oil, etc. and other things I can't even pronounce. Maybe a higher grade food for starters? I think there are lots of others, maybe grain free makes sense.

I think trying a different food is a logical place to start. I know many dogs have difficulty digesting some grains.

Definitely where were going to start, and grains naturally were on my mind. I've heard that too much/too little protein can cause this also, but am unsure first of all if its true for too little, and not sure when switching foods how much is too much.

My standards have been gassy on every food, Vegas even exaggerates it. Every time he bows to stretch, he stretches his rear in the air, lifts his tail, and farts. He especially likes doing this coming off the couch for extra rear height. He's such a guy.

Mine aren't very often, but I think it's really funny the odd time that it's happened. Last week Indy was cavorting around me acting all undignified and silly for once, when she farted and she whirled around to glare at her tail like it wasn't her fault, ha,ha!

I know the spoo I just adopted from a friend is also quite gassy. She was on raw with her and that decreased the grassiness but she still had her farts and burps (but less stinky for sure). She gets extra gassy when she eats something she's not supposed to as well I know my friend tries everything to try and reduce it but I think the spoo is just a very gassy girl haha

Charlie does that all the time. Even when he sleeps.
