Using top large breed food. Anyone have suggestions?pugmomsandyModerator
Probiotics and digestive enzymes. Also, you might try feeding just a little less since it doesn’t sound like he’s processing the food very well. My 5 lb pup used to be able to clear a room but now he eats anything, even raw eggs, and no gas.anonymouslyMember
Re: “Very bad fecal odor and gas”
If you haven’t done so already. I would stop by the vet’s office and have anal gland impaction, infection, abscess ruled out first. Also, there are other conditions that could cause this other than diet.
Thanks, pugsmomsandy. Yes, I already give probiotics. Ours is a 4mo GR 26#s. She handles raw just fine. May try slippery elm which helped while weening.C4DMember
Hi Vicki K,
It could be due to a number of things, from food intolerance, gastrointestinal imbalances, to parasites like Giardia or Coccidia. Could you provide a little more information?SusanParticipant
Hi my boy was doing this 2-3 weeks ago, I ended up worming him with Milbemax allwormer at night with food, changed his food to home cooked & put him on Metronidazole tablets for 2 weeks, Metronidazole is an antibiotic for the Stomach & Bowel it seems to fix things with Patch & he’s back to normal again….
Thanks, I will look into that.
