Default Gas-how much is normal?

Hello everyone?

My dear Achilles breaks wind at least 5 times a day and it is stinky!!

I imagine that some gas is normal, but since we have only had him a month, and we slowly transitioned him to BB grain free, I don't know what his gas situation was prior.

His tummy doesn't make noises, his stool is firm and he's "regular".....3/4 poops a day.

Should I be concerned?

Here's a pic of Achilles sleeping/dreaming tonight. I know you all like pics! Don't worry, I won't post a pic related to my post topic!

Lol. I love this picture. So cute!! Nikki farts like a person. Loud and sometimes smelly sometimes not. I'm not sure how offer she does it. Often enough... Maybe once a week...

I found out that they're supposed to fart less and less stickier than that and mine is the same ugh, it can wake u out of a dead sleep whew! But I think they said its mainly related to food.

You can hear my girls fart but I haven't smelled much. They are on Blue Buffalo Freedom (grain free) & they both get plain Greek yogurt in the morning.

Duke used to fart a lot every night and man were they stinky! But besides that his stools were normal.

Since we switched him to grain free kibble he is virtually fart free! lol

Since we switched Breeze to RAW gas is no longer a common thing. One of our quests over the holidays gave her some dog treats (I don't feed treats like that) and she was gassy after that. I do think diet is a huge contributor. Everyone told me that its normal for boxers, but as I said .. food changed, gas was gone.

My boy definitely farts when he's been at the cat food. He usually gives the cat a filthy look and moves away I know he's only trying to blame the cat for stink!!!
