Murphy is on grain free Blue Buffalo. She also only gets grain free treats from Blue as well or homemade treats I make (still need to order those non-flours from Amazon). Pheona is on lamb & brown rice Blue Buffalo but I think I am going to transition her to the grain free as well. Good luck!!!

Going to call around to check for the coconut oil & if I can't locate some locally then I will be ordering some. Then I figured while on Amazon...i'd grab some of the flours.

Zeus has some serious gas. usually everynight before he is letting loose his farts. now i feel like a bad mom cause I just thought Boxer were known for flatulence. I feed him blue buffalo basics puppy (not grain free, they do not have it) and he only eats grain free salmon treats.

I feed my girls a balanced raw diet. Typically the toot 7-8 times a day and they aten't that bad. I live with hubby and 2 teenage boys that are gassier than my girls.

I started 2 weeks ago giving them each a teaspoon of plain greek yogurt after ever meal. Since them the girls are soooo much more lady-like in the gas issue. They might have 2-3 a day now.

Their diet plays a huge role.

The girls each had a little plain Greek yogurt this morning. They loved it.

Don't feel like a bad mum. Boxers just have tender tummies. blue buffalo makes a couple grain free puppy formulas. So there are options if you would like to try it. You can also try yogurt or digestive enzymes like others have said.

Grain free treats are healthier but they won't do much overall if the main diet is not grain free.

yogurt worked wonders for my furkids gas issue yes you still hear the occasional toot but the room clearing gut churning stinky ones are rare maybe one a week and thats with three boxers!! mine get a tablespoon with every meal my girls are raw fed and my budda has bad allergies and is on a horrid heavy grain food that I so wish he didn't have to eat but is the only thing he can have with out getting really really sick but still no gas !

I didn't get a chance to log in yesterday. Thanks for all the information. Never thought about the Oatmeal!! Duh. I have been using Oatmeal blends with each food I have tried because of her dry skin/mange. I have trashed the Beggin Strips (I had 2 new bulk sized bags ). I have made some of the Peanut Butter/Banana cubes and I am waiting for them to firm so I can try those.

As for the yougart, is it strictly Greek or can it be any plain yoguart? I asked this because I already have Dannon Plain. But I didn't want to use it until I got confirmation. I will search for the coconut oil.

I LOVE THIS SITE. THANKS SO MUCH TO THE CREATORS!!!
