    Kilbane gets a teaspoon or two with every meal right on top of his kibble. Be sure to use Plain Fat Free yogurt.

    Yogurt

    I give my boxers Stonyfield Farms Vanilla yogurt with each feeding, which is twice a day. They get a tablespoon each, and they LOVE it. The gas has definitely slowed down, and, no more urinary tract infections. It is a bit pricey at almost $4 a container and they eat roughly 2 every week or so, but if it keeps them healthy then its paying for itself. Did I mention that they LOVE IT? I highly recommend it, just don't expect your dog to eat their food without it once you start them on it. Mine will refuse to eat to the point of me having to go the the store on a moments notice to get more yogurt just so they will eat, and of course, I do it. Hook line and sinker......

    The yogert will help reduce the gas?? Roc's stomach has been "bubbling" the past day or so (He's been gasing me out of the house too) and his stool has been softer then normal. Will the yogert help reduce the bubbles and help him get back to normal (whatever normal is)

    I boiled him some chicken and he puts his nose up to the pumpkin anymore...

    It definitely reduced the gas in my boys so I think its certainly worth a shot. What food do you feed him? The loose stools & excessive gas could be the food too.

    Ive heard thats excellent food. I have been feeding mine Solid Gold for years, and just bought a bag of Royal Canin Boxer 26 and heard its crap food so Im going to try to keep them on the SG. Its in very few stores and sometimes out of stock, but, I hear Royal Canin rates a 2 out of 6, and Solid Gold is a 4. I certainly dont want them eating crap food, especially considering the price is the same as the 4 star food (Solid Gold). I also think Boxers are just gassy by nature, but it can be curbed. Try the yogurt, I think it calms down their digestive tract. And don't feed table foods-we do occassionally give them cooked steak as a treat (our leftovers), and we pay dearly for it. Their gas is unreal after eating people food, but they deserve a treat once in a while. : )
