Default also having some gas problems..

I know there was just a thread on this, but I didn't want to hijack it. Sorry to be redundant!

Roxie is also having gas problems. She eats Natural Balance Limited Ingredient Diet-- Sweet Potato and Chicken. In the morning she has salmon oil and a tablespoon on plain greek yogurt mixed in. Twice a week she gets a raw egg-- no shells. Occasionally some chicken I cook in a pan with olive oil. Zuke's grain-free treats.


Her gas smells so terrible and at night it is nearly incessant-- probably one toot every 2-3 minutes.


She also had a yeast infection from her old food (wellness, which has a lot of potatoes) and she sleeps from 10pm-10am everyday. Vet seems to think it's all allergy related but doesn't want to test in the hopes she'll outgrow it. I'm not sure of it relates to the gas??

I feel bad for the girl.. seems like it's always something.. I'd like to clear it up! So any advice at all would be wonderful!

I would cut out all the extras. See if by removing the eggs, yogurt, olive oil, chicken and treats helps.

Just feed her the NB LID. If toots get better than you know its the extras, if they stay the same then you know its her food.
