Teddy is killing me. The last couple of days, he's had really stinky farts. His stools look normal and he hasn't eaten anything out of the ordinary. I feed him Wellness Core (turkey/chicken/liver) mixed with a small amount of Wellness Puppy kibble, and of course, he finishes whatever the cat leaves behind in his bowl. But he's done this all along, so I'm not sure why all of the sudden he's having these lethal episodes.

I have heard that it's okay to give dogs simethicone products like Gas-X, but I'm not sure about puppies. When you search on the internet for stuff like this, you find all sorts of conflicting information.

Do any of you kind people have any suggestions for me to try? Has anyone here given their puppy simethicone?

Help me, please. I'm begging you. He's putting my sister's lab to shame here.

Wellness gave our big boys nasty farts, too... we had to stop feeding it to them, seeing as our house quickly became a biological war zone. Once we stopped feeding the Wellness, the gas stopped.

Nice!! Lethal Episodes - Suri has these moments poor girl. I think sometimes food does play a big part - I have changed foods because of this. Also a breeder once told me that you should try to avoid a dog drinking much water after they eat because it causes gas....... to wait 30 minutes or more - because gulping water after eating causes air to get in and it has to go somewhere. I give Suri the prohibotic?? enzymes powder in her food and a gas pill once or twice a day when it sparks up. I cannot remember the name...sorry.

Thanks, you two. I'm going to call my vet's office today and see if they recommend any particular gas relief medicine.

Last night before I went to sleep, I had to light a scented candle in the bedroom. It was brutal. :wacko:

(I blew it out before I actually went to sleep though)

Maybe it's just something we have to live with occasionally, as we do with some of our human companions. I wonder if anyone has successfully taught a dog to stop farting on command. :rofl:

That's a brilliant idea, BRP! I was talking about training him to NOT fart, but to fart on command is even better! LOL!

You mentioned bully sticks. Is this something new you've added? If so, they could be the culprit.
