I am convinced that gas is directly related to diet.
A bad diet that doesn't agree with your pup will result in bad gas.
A diet that does agree with your pup will result in little to no gas and what little gas there is will be noise without the accompanying aroma.
Unfortunately, there is not one "diet" that agrees with all boxer tummies.

I agree! Wyatt was on a natural eukenuba lamb and rice and the gas was typical a few times a night not room clearing. I switched him to wellness and OMG. Horrible gas, leave the room?!?!!? Try leave the country!!!!. Actually took him to the vet yesterday for another issue and asked about these balding spot and they said possible food allergy. Pretty much only two things dif in food fish and oatmeal in the wellness. I know it's not oatmeal bc Ive made him treats with oatmeal. So I decided to go with BB freedom. His dinner feeding had some of the new mixed in with old and his stinkers weren't bad at all last night. Not to sound gross kinda smelled like pot roast. Today he ate his dinner drank a bunch of water and came to sit on my lap, burped in my face ( gotta love that) and it smelled like roast beef again! So I'm sure alot if not all comes from diets... Just look at people... Certain foods don't agree with our tummies!

My girls are raw fed as well. I find that pork makes them really gassy so we limit the amount they have. I've noticed that when they have fish it's a different kind of gas altogether.

Some days I don't know who's worse, the hubby or the puppies or the hubby blaming the puppies on his gas... Yeah, like I can't tell the difference? The girls's farts don't linger as long...

I love my Scentsy!!

We're switching Duke to BB Freedom from Fromm four-star grain free and my husband says I'm crazy but I'm pretty sure he's shedding less already! Now hopefully everything else remains the same because he was doing well on the Fromm except for the excessive shedding.

I've had my girl on BB Feeedom for almost a week now. She's not even fully transitioned onto it (about 3/4) but her coat, breath, gas, and stools are already better. She never even had runny stools when trying to transition her. I can probably put her fully onto the BB now but I want to use up all the old food first lol. She loves it though.

I'm happy to report that since eliminating the store bought treats, the gas has disappeared!!!

I made two different types of grain free treats for Achilles last weekend (pumpkin and carrot/ginger). He loves them both! In addition, we've added a banana each day to his diet and we've just started him on coconut oil.

Whatever the variables, Achilles is gas free and we can breath again in our home! Phew!

No problem! I'll type them up and paste them here for you! I played around with a few ingredients (coconut flour and powdered milk) adding flavor with veggies and spice. I was amazed that with a little practice, they turned out beautifully!

Here was the final result. The bones are pumpkin cookies and the round ones are carrot/ginger. Gas-how much is normal?-imageuploadedbypg-free1357781573.686669.jpgGas-how much is normal?-imageuploadedbypg-free1357781594.088167.jpg

I will post the recipes tomorrow!

Here is my recipe for the two Grain Free Doggie Treats I made last weekend. ENJOY!

Grain-Free Pumpkin Doggie Treats

2 ½ cups of Coconut Flour (I bought this flour on Amazon.com)
2 Tablespoons crushed Flax Seed
2 Large Eggs, lightly beaten
¾ cup of pumpkin puree
¼ cup of water or enough to make the dough stick

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two sheets with parchment paper (or a Silpat baking sheet). Combine the flour and flax in a large bowl.
Mix eggs and pumpkin together in a separate bowl until smooth.
Add pumpkin mixture to the flour mixture in two parts, stirring with a wooden spoon or spatula. Add the water slowly. Use your hands to pull the dough together.

Roll the dough out to ¼ inch thickness (approx.)
Use a cookie cutter (I used my bone shaped cutter) and lay each cut out on the baking sheets.
Re-roll and cut the scrapes until you’ve used up the dough.

My batch turned out 36 bone shaped cookies.

Bake for 35-40 minutes .


Grain-Free Carrot/Ginger Doggie Cookies

2 cups of Coconut Flour

½ cup of skim dry milk

½ cup of water – ¾ cup of water

1 tablespoon of Coconut oil (I melted mine before measuring)

1 tablespoon of ginger powder

¼ cup – ½ cup of grated carrot (I kept adding to the mix until the consistency was to my liking

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Line one baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat.

Mix the flour, milk and ginger powder together.
Add the coconut oil and carrot (start with just ¼ cup of the carrot).
Start adding the water, stirring and mixing as you go to gauge the consistency. At this time, I added more carrot.

I chose not to roll this dough out – it was lumpy with the carrot. I made it into small balls and then put them onto one baking sheet.

Bake for 30-35 minutes.
