• Smokey is on the Satiety dog food, wet and dry, for weight loss but he has started having a lot of really foul smelling gas, his tummy rumbles alot, and is really tight. I got him a new dog bowl with dividers to make him eat slower. Is there anything else I can do to help his gas problem?

    Hi Vicki,
    I recommend that you call and talk to your local veterinarian about this question. Gas like you are describing can be caused by the food that he is eating but there can be other more serious causes as well. Your vet can get some more information from you and let you know if he needs to be examined, if he needs a food change, if he needs medications, or if this is just something that you can watch. If you see any other signs like not wanting to eat, lethargy, vomiting or diarrhea he needs to be seen by a veterinarian as soon as possible.

Need more information or advice?
