Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

 Gas Issue?

PostSubject: Gas Issue?   Mon Apr 01, 2013 11:51 am

when I adopted my husky, he was on FirstMate Ocean Fish Formula. FirstMate is a pretty good brand here in Canada especially in the West. He was okay but I started to switch to TOTW Pacific Stream these days. Every day he has a little gas a few times when he stretches - but not every time. Do you think it's a big deal? Is it because of the dog food? Any suggestions?
Thank you.

From our experience, we've changed kibbles a lot (7 different brands in 2 years), and even went from kibble to raw back to kibble back to raw. Usually during the initial switch, until their body transitions to a new food completely, they will be gassy. Some foods cause them to be more gassy and no matter how long they eat it, the gas doesn't stop until you switch to a different food. If they are doing well on a food, yet are gassy, you just have to give it time. If the gas bothers you too much, or you think they're always bloated, you can switch to a different food that they will do equally well on without the gas after a transition period. It's all trial and error, but give each food time. Sometimes it takes weeks to months for the dog's body to make a full transition. Good luck. Hope that helps!

Generally something the dog is eating is causing the gas. Whether or not it's an issue is really up to you and the dog. I personally don't feed anything that gives my dogs gas. If something causes gas then I get rid of it. My dogs haven't had gas in years. And from my personal experience, if a food causes gas then it causes gas, it doesn't stop causing gas over time.
