When Belah and Jaxon fart, they have to get up and move away. They stink themselves out. NOW THATS BAD!!!! LOL. I know Belah farts more than Jaxon. Sometimes I think its my husband...then I smell it. She has very distinct smell...HORRIFIC....HAHA.

Honestly I have both my dogs (One is a Boston) on Blue's Freedom grain free and they never fart.... I think it depends on the food you give them.

Achilles is on BB Freedom and he is full of farts! After reading everyone's posts, I'm thinking that it may be related to his treats though. My hubby bought him these dental treats over the holidays that he really likes. Before we bought these, he only got homemade treats my Mom makes for dogs.

I'll try eliminating the store bought treats and see if that helps the stinkies!

We started buying only the grain free treats from BB. Or, I make my own.

Lexi is a big tooter! Probably 5 times an hour and they are soooo stinky. Especially when she's under the covers in our bed!!

Yes, we feed bb freedom and since we switched to that- grain free- farts have been close to none, ever. I would def eliminate all treats that aren't homemade and /or grain free

Dempsey didn't pass gas when on TOTW Pacific Stream (grain free), but had horrible, gagging, gas on Wellness Core Ocean (also grain free). He's currently on Acana Chicken and Burbank Potato (grain inclusive; steel cut oats), and the gas is back... After this bag, I'll definitely return to a grain free kibble. In the meantime, I think I'll get some yogurt!

My dogs are on raw too. Maybe that's why Nikki isn't so gassy.. ??

Moxie had really stinky farts until I switched her to grain free. Now they're almost gone. She gets gassy if she gets too many treats or once in a while from fish oil.

I think gas is common in boxers because boxers commonly have tender tummies. Jmo.
