Gassy puppy


My extended family came over to visit Shelby for the first time this past weekend. They brought lots of treats, including Beggin' Strips (her favorite), Science Diet treats, and liver treats. I heard that pugs can potenitally be gassy, so I've been feeding her chicken and rice wet food combined with kibble. I notice that the more wet food she gets, the stinkier the gas. I also notice that the stinkier liver treats she got this weekend result in more stinkier gas. Fun fun. Seriously though, I read that pugs can be gassy, but it really hasn't been that noticible. I don't think Shelby has a flatulence issue.

I once had a pit bull named Teddy who had, early in his life, been a stray. As a result, Teddy had a taste for trash, and would often help himself to whatever he could find in the bin. End result: some of the rankest, nastiest farts once can imagine. Not only that, but they were LOUD, so I came to dread the sound of a doggie passing gas.

I hope Shelby says excuse me if she farts.Pugs never say excuse me.They just let one go and laugh and give you that innocent look.I did not fart it was the cat.

I put prozyme powder supplement in my dogs food..they love it and no more stinky farts!! It's good for their teeth, coat, eyes etc.

My pug Rocky has nasty gas. It honestly burns your nose hairs and makes your eyes burn it's so bad. And he truely does give us an innocent look like he didn't do it. Pugs are funny like that. So it's good to hear that it's a normal pug thing and I'm not feeding him something bad.

Hahaha I just loved reading these comments and what you had to say :)
I also have a pug but her farts don't smell bad. You can barely tell she farted until she gives you " the look ".

I heard that we should not feed dogs yogurt as they do not have th enzymes to digest diary products. Is this true... anyone out there??

Hmm, i haven't heard that, and I hope it's not true because we often give Shelby a bit of yogurt, and she loves it.

Hi Winnie,

How much (1 tsp,tb) and how often does SHelby get her yogurt? Is it plain or flavoured type? Thanks YOu

Posted by: Lene | Aug 14, 2008 12:16:33 AM

About 1 tbs. Plain. We don't like giving Shelby too many sugary things, though I'm sure she'd love it.

Posted by: Winnie | Aug 14, 2008 8:57:30 PM

Thank you for the reply.So how often does Shelby get 1tbs of plain yogurt? Does Shelby get reactions to too much sugar? Also, how did you know she's allergic to chicken? What symptoms are there? Thanks.

Every morning with breakfast.

Here's the post about the chicken allergy.

My pug Minnie pumps all the time. On walks it's: trot, trot, trot, fart, sneeze, trot, trot, fart, fart sneeze etc. Back at home she gan literally clear a room, they're so stinky.

I feed my 3 yr old pug once a day and give 70g dry food, sometimes mixed with a little soft food to make it more interesting for her.
