    First let me start by saying I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place but I wasn't sure where else to put it. Chance's gas has gotten so bad it actually woke me up this morning and the whole house smelled. I have been feeding him Wellness Whitefish and Sweet potato formula for his allergies which seemed to have helped his itchies but the gas has continually gotten worse. Is there anything I can give him for it or do I need to switch foods again? I know boxers are prone to gas but this is just out of control, any help would be appreciated, thanks so much for your time :)

    They do make gas tablets especially for dogs. I always keep them on hand. Sometimes it will smell as though a skunk has escaped somewhere in my house! Those tablets are lifesavers sometimes!

    Have you tried natural yoghurt? Biff has a dessertspoonful a day and it really does help.

    Ali was really stinky until I switched to Canidae. A boxer friend of mine had problems with allergies and switched to Canidae too. Hope this is of some help.

    Laila had terrible gas every day...then I started to use Prozyme sprinkled on her food with each meal ...it took about a week and then the gas decreased about 90%..now if she has gas we comment because it is such a rare event! Hope it lasts.....Barbara

    Question about yogurt/prozyme

    My boxers have the same gas problem and they are on canidae too. I will definitely have to try some of the remedies suggested but had some questions:

    The yogurt you are referring to - is it just plain store bought natural/plain yogurt???? And just 1 tsp a day?

    Also, where do you buy the prozyme?

    Does one work better than the other?

    Thanks!

    Thank you all so much for your replies. We had Chance on Canidae but after about a month he simply refused to eat it, so we switched to the Wellness brand and he hasn't looked back. I will try some of the suggestions posted here and hopefully we can get some relief. Kayboxer, can you please give me an idea of where I find the tablets you spoke of, and Biff what brand of yogurt do you use? I have tried Dannon in the past and it doesn't agree with Chances' belly. Thanks again guys you really are AWESOME :)
