    DefaultWhy such terrible gas?

    I have a 1.3 year old yellow lab named Liz.
    We have never really had gas problems before but for the past 5 days she has had some really stinky and loud gas. Nothing about her diet has changed.
    She eats Wellness Super 5 Mix Adult Whitefish dry food and has been doing so for 5 months.
    She exercises and runs about 2-3 miles a day.
    She goes inside and out as she pleases and is constantly with people (who wish she didn't pass so much gas). Any suggestions as to what could be causing this gas?

    I'd have her stool checked for parasites to start.

    No treats that are different? The only time mine had toxic gas was when I tried venison treats. Smelled like something died up in their guts.

    No new treats in the past month. And I know she doesn't have ticks, fleas, heart worms, round worms, hookworms, or whipworms since she takes trifexis monthly.

    Maybe a less common parasite that isn't covered by her medicine?
    Also the gas usually occurs at the end of the day. She is usually free of gas all day until about 9:00.
