What Causes Dog Flatulence?

The secret to preventing foul smelling canine flatulence is to figure out what is causing the problem in your dog.

Excessive amounts of air or gases in your dog’s stomach or intestines cause dog flatulence.

Some dogs seem to have more problems
with canine flatulence, than others!

Where does the gas in dogs come from?

  • Food - The gas that causes dog farts can come from the breakdown of gas-producing foods, like beans, root vegetables, cabbage, cauliflower, or onions. Even milk can cause the formation of gas for some dogs.

    Soy beans and soy products are very hard to digest for dogs, and if your dog’s food has soy in it, his dog food could be causing a problem.

    However, foods that cause severe flatulence in one dog may not cause gas in another, so you will have to do some experimenting with your dog.

  • Eating too fast - If your dog gulps down his food fast, he can also gulp down lots of air. A sure sign that this is happening, is your dog belching. If he is taking in too much air with his food, your dog will also have dog gas in his intestines.

    If your dog is a fast eater and he burps after meals, consider using a dog food bowl like this one.

  • Dog breed - Some dog breeds are more likely to have a problem with dog flatulence than others. Boxers and Doberman Pinschers are two examples of susceptible breeds.
  • Diseases - If your dog has liver disease, pancreatic disease or is obese, he will be more prone to gas attacks and canine flatulence.

How to Prevent
Dog Gas and Dog Farts

  • Make sure that you avoid the gas-producing foods listed above. Gas-producing foods will cause foul smelling canine flatulence in just about any dog.
  • Remove your dog's pet food after a while, if it is not gone. Fasting promotes good digestion and detoxification,
  • Check your dog's food. Dog flatulence can be resolved with a healthy diet, rich in raw or unprocessed food. Organic foods will not contain pesticides and herbicides which can also disturb your pet's system.
  • Keep food and water bowls clean and free of bacteria, etc.
  • Exercise your dog regularly. This helps keep her bowels and digestion normal and healthy.
  • Never give cat food to your dog if he is prone to gas, as it is very high in protein and meat, and will encourage dog flatulence.

    Better yet, you should never give cat food to a dog, anyway. It’s just not what he needs to be healthy!

If you have kids or grandkids, you might want to have a little fun with them by getting them this cute little book.

It's a way to discuss the issue, but keep it on a lighter level, without sinking to the gross level that the topic of smelly flatulence often goes, with kids.

The book is a really popular children's book, and I think you'll find it entertaining--no matter how old you are!

Directions For
Gas Busters for Dog Flatulence

The directions for this canine gas treat are easy. I use the bread machine to simplify the process. However, you can also use your heavy duty mixer, with a dough hook.

  • Simply put everything into the bread machine in the order that your manufacturer suggests.
  • Use the “dough” setting. When your bell rings to tell you that the dough is done, remove the dough and divide it into 3 equal parts to make it easy to roll.
  • You will need to spread flour on the cutting board before rolling the dough, and you should sprinkle flour onto the rolling pin to keep it from sticking.
  • Roll each ball into a sheet that is about ¼” thick. For these treats, I use a cookie cutter that is a little longer than an inch. It’s a good size for most dogs.
  • Keep a bowl of flour nearby, and dip the cookie cutter into the flour each time you cut a cookie—to keep it from sticking.
  • Optional - It does take time to cut each cookie, so if you are pressed for time, just use a pizza cutter and cut the sheets of dough into 1” squares.
  • Place the cookies on a greased cookie sheet. Cover them with a clean towel and let them rise (in a warm place) for 30-60 minutes--until they get to be as big as you want them to be.
  • Bake at 275 degrees F for 1 hour. Turn off the oven and let the cookies sit in the oven for several hours or overnight to finish drying. When they are done, they will be hard and very crisp.
  • Gas Busters canine flatulence dog treats sure come in handy when the "need" arises. Enjoy!
