Did you slowly transition the food or just do an abrupt change to the new? An abrupt change in diet can have this effect. Although in my experience, pits just tend to have some aweful farts regardless, ha ha :p

It will pass. My two had the exact same problem when we switched food.

My little guy had the most rotten gas all of his 13 years of life, regardless of the type of food we had him on. Some days were worse then others, we just chalked it up as one of his quirks. Even the kennel we got him from said it was something we needed to get used to as all their dogs were the same.

In my experience pit bulls are gassy dogs but if you changed the food give it some time and it should get better. You can also try giving a probiotic like yogurt. You can give a spoon full of plain yogurt at each feeding but do not give too much or it will make the gas worse ;)

Give some plain yogurt for the time being. Just a spoonful in her food. If the gas continues past the time when she is transitioned over, its possible that that brand of food is not agreeing with her. Also, some dogs who eat rapidly will gulp air and it results in copious gas. If she's a high-speed eater, you might want to try to slow her down. Adding water helps sometimes, and they also make bowls where the dog has to eat around pillars in the middle and they can't gulp their food as quickly.
