Q: Q: My dog has wind! What can I do to prevent this?

 

As with many problems that affect our pets, flatulence is often as a result of a combination of causative factors. It can occur as a result of a food allergy / dietary intolerance but it’s important to rule out some of the more common causes too. These can include eating too quickly, eating too much and scavenging. Some foods can be gas producing; so a highly digestible diet such as Arden Grange can often be very helpful. Don’t forget to ensure that you only feed hypoallergenic treats too (such as the Arden Grange Crunchy Bites) too. Rawhide chews are often enjoyed, but can be the primary cause of wind in many dogs as they are made largely from indigestible protein.
