Worst gas imaginable

Recommended Posts

shoot-straight

My old boy (12) has really started pumping out the gas lately. Not the kids stuff either- like eye watering, room clearing gas. Last night it woke me from a dead sleep. I thought the winds blowing over our vent stacks somehow sucked septic fumes or crap back into the house.

 

same hypoallergenic  diet I've been feeding him for many years. He has an affection for rabbit pellets. That's not new ether.  Don't think anything can be done, just wanted get it out there to others who can feel my pain.

You may want to consider keeping him away from the woodstove. Methane is highly volatile. My second thought is that toasting his farts can't possibly make them smell any better.

I'm jealous! I have grey hair and can't measure up to that.

Try adding a tbsp of plain yogurt to his food every feeding.

You could try giving him a Beano with each meal.   Worked for our Golden when she got old, but we never tried yogurt.

Does he smell his own farts?

He usually gets up and moves after he floats one. But sometimes he just lays there. Maybe picks his head up a bit. 

 

Just hope hes not lactose intolerant....

My old dog Jake was as flatulent as they come. He was funny though that when he ripped one if it was silent he just laid there and acted like it never happened. But if it made a noise when he cut loose he would quickly run out of the room.

The dogs when they have gas all do the same thing they let it rip and slowly walk out of the room when they get to the door they look back and it is almost like they are smiling cause they know they crop dusted you badly O.o

My last setter Frost would be lying quietly or sleeping on the hardwood floor and rip a loud one.

Would scare her so bad she would yelp and run off. Funny!
