|Husky of the Month|
Congrats Nikita, Archer, and Cheyanne,
our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|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.

No matter what food I give my girl, she's always got the foulest smelling arse afterwards. Any ideas on why?

The only experience that I had with Okami having bad farts was when I fed her the Blue Buffalo Wilderness Salmon Treats... I went out and bought a different brand Salmon treat, and found that it is just salmon not the Brands itself. My guess is there is a possible food your dog is having a bad gassy reaction to. Have you changed anything to her diet as of recent? New treats, new food, etcetera?
Also if you change the food too often you can upset the stomach and get bad gas, runny excrement.
Check with your vet to have them run a food allergy test, and bring with you everything you have been feeding your dog since this started. If you don't have the bags, look up the ingredients to every thing and print them off/write them down. It will make it easier for your vet too to know what allergies to test.
If they do in fact find something wrong, the solution would be simple at that point, find a food and/or treat that doesn't contain the food issue in the ingredients list.
Also food for thought, when switching foods the typical safe ways of transition are as follows:
Take the old food and slowly add the new food over the course of 14 days until you are feeding nothing but the new food.
Or another really great way is feeding a bland diet and slowly transition the new food in.
As far as Bland diets go, my personal favorite is feeding boiled beef, another is boiled chicken, or rice.
You may notice gas issues or runny poop still, but don't falter in your schedule. Once you pick the right food, the problems should go away soon.
And if your vet recommends any food that you can only buy at the vet, don't. Usually they are only pushing it because of sales and sponsors, and the food is usually not very good for them to say the least. There are plenty of great threads right here that give plenty of advice and breakdowns of brands and flavors.

She's not had any tests done lately, but the ones before came back clean. She was put straight on adult food when she was younger so we tried 4 different ones until we found the one she likes, and doesn't give her the runs. Then we moved and found something similar where we are now. We have also got them new treats, but the smell hasn't really changed with what we have given her (except when we give her chicken flavoured food). Thanks for the help
