    Stinky Boy

    Hello everyone this is my first Frenchie and I know I've heard they have bad gas issues but I was wondering if there is anything to help this situation or is it something we just have to live with????

    My experience with Bulldogs is they get gas from food that is too rich for them or otherwise disagrees with their digestive system. What do you feed Louie? Check with your vet, but I think it is okay to give dogs Beano.

    I have found that dogs just have gas....now Ollie does get worse when I feed him people food, and he gets itchy too....so I TRY to stick with his treats and his food only. Food can and does make a big difference I agree with other posters....

    I agree with the others, food does make a big difference in gas. Hazel and my bullies, don't have a lot of gas, because we feed them a good quality food that agrees with them.

    I feed Louie Wellness puppy food in the yellow bag. Does anyone have any experience with this food? Could it be the food?

    I was trying to decide between Blue Buffallo and Wellness. They are very silimiar. I chose Blue because it has the wilderness line with a higher protein for my EB. Wellness should be fine for Louie, its a good brand. Are you feeding him any treats or people food? I have foud that when I feed Ollie people food his allergies kick in and he itches a LOT more, so I have to stop it and just give his blue cookies.

    Re: Stinky Boy

    Cosette has had a rather gassy two days, unusual for her.
    You'll never have a bad day with a Frenchie in your life!

    I had tried out a new treat for Jax one time and he was beyond gassy. I stopped giving him that treat and his gas went back to normal.

    Re: Stinky Boy

    I talked to my vet and he said not to switch food just yet but cut out treats and see if that helps. I was giving him fruitables for treats and really no people food except for the occasional piece of Apple or banana. I am now just giving him pieces of his kibble for treats. He poops a lot too sometimes 4 times a day not sure if it's because he's a puppy.

    Re: Stinky Boy

    When we first brought math home at 10 weeks old she pooped almost 4-5 times a day. It got a lot better as she got older and we switched from feeding her 3 times a day to 2 times a day. She maybe goes 3 times a day now?

    Re: Stinky Boy

    Ollie goes 2 to 3 times a day and we feed him twice a day. Pretty normal. I usually will get an extra poop on our walks in the evening. I need to get a picture of Ollie in his new jacket. So cute!
