We are slowly in the process of switching Vegas food. We choose Solid Gold Puppy food for Large Breeds (wolf pack). Her farts are eye watering, nose burning, gag reflex causing malicious little things.   I am thinking, Daddy picked the wrong food  :lol: I was driving in the car with ehr yesterday and we were heading up to Red Rocks for a mini-hike, I hear a small pfft.... and a big WHOA from me! 8O   This little thing came out of my little baby and smelled worse then me the day after a drunken night and Taco Bell.  :signeek:    Anywho, Just was curious and wanted to share.

I remember reading up on boxers and it saying that they were known for there flatulence "issue". I was wondering if we got lucky with Odin cuz' I never noticed anything... till he was about 16 or so wks old... it started!! LOL OMG It's so bad... like 3 times a day at least... that I end up smelling it. Some days worse than others. I think it's normal for a boxer... from what I've heard. But it's gross and hilarious at the same time... depending on who he SBD's!! LOL How can a little Pfft be so STRONG in smell!!????

Yes, Nothing like boxer farts to clear out a room!  8O  As long as she is doing well on the Solid Gold I wouldn't change the food. Try giving her a tablespoon of low fat unsweetened plain yogurt every day. I like the Stoneyfield Farms brand because it has more of the good probiotics in it. I give that to Maddie every night and I don't get gassed out of the room anymore.

*PS - I would recommend no more drinking and Taco Bell for you!  :bigrazz:  Or maybe try the yogurt as well!!

I have never used Solid Gold puppy but Kiah is on the Hund -N-Flocken (adult, gold bag) and no problems there.  I know the silver bag is for puppies but it has 28% protein and not sure if that is too high or not.

So here is the difference. It doesn't seem to be that much, 2%. Any thoughts? Is that 2% enough or is 26% to high for Boxer pups. This is the food my friend gave Bailey (his boxer) when she was a pup. I am always up advice so please let me know.

Here is the one Vega is eating.

The silver bag I am talking about is not the Wolfcub but the Hund-N-Flocken puppy.  The rescue where I got Kiah recommended the Hund-N-Flocken.  I believe it is lamb, not sure what the wolfcub is.  Here is the % of the wolfcub:    
Protein, Min 26%
Fat, Min 12%
Fiber, Max 4%
Moisture, Max 10%
Calcium, Max 1.5%
Phosphorus, Max 1.2%
Calories per cup, 375

And the Hund-N-Flocken puppy:
Protein, Min 28%
Fat, Min 14%
Fiber, Max 4%
Moisture, Max 10%
Calories per cup, 410

We've been feeding Charile and Sadie the Solid Gold Mmelinia.  Sadie farts quite a bit, but I guess we're lucky cause most don't have any odor at all.

I tend to stick to 22-24% protein when feeding puppies - but thats just me.    Higher protein counts will contribute to excellerated bone growth.   With that acceleration, the pups muscles and supporting tissues cannot keep up at the same growth rate thus can result in injury.    I highly advise against Innova Evo for puppies which has protein of 30 something.

I feed raw, but use Timberwolf grainess kibble too (24% protein).   At first with Kash I did notice some gas probablly due to the richness of the kibble.   Yogurt or a simple probiotic can help in the digestion of the rich food like others have mentioned.

Good Luck - nothing beats a nice dutch oven at night:)
