Anyone have Gas Problems with Ur Pit Bull?

I've got a Pit/Shar-Pei mix he's 3 yrs old and has a horriable gas problem what could we do about it? any quick fixin I could give him? He eats mostly dry food but is fixing to fix some chicken and rice for all 5 of my babies. I have Gas Stop tablets but he doesn't like the taste of them so I give them in cheese but he spits out the cheese and looks at it like something is wrong with it. lol any ideas?


I ment to place this in the health section....

Chicken and turkey can really make them stink bad. I stopped giving it to Dosia long ago cause he could clear a room like no other. My oldest Marley has pit and sharpie in him too Try switching the chicken to raw beef and I bet the stink will go away.

I had the same issue with Savannah. She was a gassy bitch, would run you out of the room. I've mainly gotten her gas under control, she still has her days, but it's not EVERY 5 minutes anymore. The first thing is, what type of dog food are you feeding her? You want a high qaulity food that isn't full of corn, soy and wheat. Also foods with high protein and high fat can also cause the issue.

What I did was switched her to Professional Brand Low-Fat chicken and barley. The barley is easier to digest for some dogs than rice, and cutting down the fat content can help. Just remember if you do switch to a diet food, don't feed based on the chart on the back, that chart is for dogs who are trying to lose weight. Look at the chart, and if your dog is 40-60lbs feed the top end of the suggested amount. And if she starts to gain a lil weight, cut her back by a 1/2 cup until you find the perfect amount to maintain weight.

Good luck!

Wingman hit the nail on the head with her post! You need to assess the type of food you're feeding. Alot of times, the kibble is the source of the gas. If you're feeding stuff like Kibbles n Bits, Purina, Pedigree or anything else that is corn based, that will definately give your dogs some serious gas! As kg420 said.. you'd be better off switching to the beef instead of chicken, as beef is easier for the dogs to digest, and you don't want to cook it as that cooks out the much needed nutrients and vitamins they get! Good luck and for future reference, you can check out the health and nutrition section as it addressed many aspects of the pet food products that we use, as well as gives you solid info on what's good and what's bad for the dogs! Please keep us posted!

Yeah, the food will have a lot to do with it. We had several years of Pit Bulls who could fart you out of the room. They were eating Purina Dog Chow, Ol Roy, Alpo, Pedigree, Iams, whatever plain-label junk was on sale at the grocery store. Since feeding 5- and 6-star food like Nature's Variety, Solid Gold, Taste of the Wild, Barking at the Moon, NV Instinct, etc., we have no more gas problems.

You can give your dog a little bit of plain yogurt in the food to help reduce gas, but you also really need to look at what you feed in order to effect a more permanent solution. Dog Food Analysis - Reviews of kibble

I have the same problem - he may have a sensitive stomach & reacting to the food. I switched from Nutro Lamb N Rice, to herring & sweet potato - still horrible rancid gas... Recently I change to Nutro Ultra Adult (not large adult) & it's cleared up beyond belief.

But now he's on blue buffalo solely because of getting harassed by those nutro reps in petsmart & still is doing fine - quality as well as protein source makes a HUGE difference.

Be careful switching around too much though - slowly integrate new foods... Watch for other allergic reactions too aside from gas.

I feed my dogs the diamonds lamb meal and rice, and they fart all the time, but they don't smell they're just REALLY loud and sort of embarrassing if guests are over lol, is this because they eat too fast or swallow too much air?

Ellis used to have horrible gas. We switched him to a raw diet and now he is much better.

Yeah Max can clear rooms and even stores. When he farts other folks look at me like i done it, would say it was my dog he has gas problems they would hurry and walk away or hold their nose and grab what they were looking for and run for the hills.. lol All of my dogs now have STOMACH VIRUS that is passing around from dog to dog down here in D'Vile.. ggrrrr... vet told us to take him off of foods and keep him on liquids. beef broth is on the menu now.. I will check into some upgraded foods and see what he might like. I was wondering what kind of raw diet would be the key? Has also thought about Omega-3 too to be added in.. Our dog trainer said it would clear up his coat and make him much shinnier..
Is very upset with Frontline they don't back up their products to what they say, That it kills fleas and eggs.. HUH!!! I don't think so!! I've got 4 doxies and Max and all of them have fleas, fleas eggs, and flea dirt in their coats.. We've tried to find something to put out in the yard that would work for a month but most we found says treat every 2 weeks?????

When we were feeding them cooked chicken and brown rice, green beans, and carrots. I would add garlic powerder to their meals. What else is a home remedy to help reduce fleas anyone? Thanks for all the replies!!!!

We do 80% meat 10%bone and 10%organs. He eats mostly beef, pork, turkey and rabbit. I also add in the occasional veggie such as collard greens, broccoli and carrots. He also get omega 3 supplement daily.

Dont forget about treats. My fathers dog eats junk dog food and she's fine.
But you give her some liver/jerky treats or those dried chicken strips and look out!!
