My dog has really bad gas for about the last week. What can I do for him?
He is on dry food.

What kind of dry food is your dog on? Have you introduced any new treats into his diet?

I found that when I introduced new foods into my puppy's diet (even treats), he would have really bad gas, but when he adjusted to it, he was better (and I think it has something to do with my dog's allergies).

Give him plain yoghurt. Not the fat free kind, you need the active culture.

My vet said one teaspoon once a day for a 30 pound dog, so base the dosage on that.

It's hard to say without knowing what food your doggy is on. It could be that there is something hard to digest or something that when digested releases gas (like soy) in his food.

Thank you that makes good sense.
