    DefaultGas??

    I have noticed the past two days that Raven has HORRIBLE gas. We've only had her for a week and a half. She has loud farts that I can hear and I'm constantly spritzing the air with lysol to cover up the horrendous smell. It's possible that she has had the problem since we got her because up until yesterday she was able to spend a lot of time outside, but yesterday it started getting rainy and cold so she's cooped up in the house. Do you guys have any ideas?

    If she's been like this all along, it could be the food. Or even the treats she's getting. I'm assuming she's a puppy. If she was an adult I'd suggest giving her some activated charcoal tablets. Not quite sure what to do for a pup, tho, sorry.

    I also give milkbones as treats and that's it.

    Oh, I almost forgot, I started giving her chew hooves with a bit of peanut butter smeared inside today to keep her busy. She still loves to chew and will chew up things she's not supposed to chew if she doesn't have something yummy....so with her cooped up in the house I got her these to keep her busy. The gas started before today though; so I doubt these things are the problem.

    try a kong with peanut butter rather than the hooves. I assume you mean they are pig hooves?? Pork gives our lab terrible gas too.

    They are cow hooves. But, the gas started before I started giving those. Also, her stools are really soft more often than not. She pooped in the house TWICE this evening, which she never does. I don't know if she's having a hard time holding it because it's soft or if she just doesn't want to go outside in this weather.

    are the hooves smoked? Any treat like that gets Millys bottom trumpeting!!

    I would suggest you cut out all treats and see if that helps. if not it may be time for a food switch? What food are you feeding her?

    Um, I thought I mentioned her food in my initial post. I also posted the list of ingredients.

    Maybe try a food not so heavy on the carbs (grains).
