Pumpkin or Yogurt?

Do you guys give your dog pumpkin or yogurt or both for gas?
Yukon has had some wicked gas and we can't stand it! We have to leave the room at least twice every night cause it wreaks! He's eating the Nutro Natural Puppy Lamb and Rice... he also gets milkbones, and some of those formed rawhide sticks, and occasionally some peanut butter in his kong... Could any of those things cause bad gas? Or is he just a gassy pup?

I used to feed my dog Lamb and Rice and it gave him BAD gas!! I did switch his food, and all was good. But some people's dogs aren't affected by Lamb and Rice in that way. OH wait.... is Yukon a Pittie?? Because they get gas from evrything!!! Trust me! You want to read about it..let me know. I wondered if it was just my boy, but turns out that it's a Pit Bull's way!

Copper's right. We find the thing that seems to give Daisy the most gas is oxygen!

I know that peanut butter used to do nasty things to her digestive system.

Is the adult Nutro lamb and rice too? Maybe once we switch to adult it will help? We'd like to keep him on Nutro though... seems like the only good food at the pet store near us....
We'll try nixing the PB too, thanks guys!

I would stop the Milkbones. Those things are deadly! IF you want to give him treats, make them a better quality.

Could be his food too. My Chloe never gets gas and I feed her Wellness and she gets good quality cookies. No rawhide either.

You can add a few tablespoons of plain yogurt to his food. It's very helpful.

Why are milkbones not good?? I've never heard that before, those are the only thing my mom used to give her dogs as treats...
And I thought the formed rawhide was okay to give them?
We don't have Wellness in our pet stores... don't know why. Besides Nutro, they say their Pro-Plan and Iams are good.

OMG! Why are the milkbones bad? I have a special reason for asking. We have a boarder that is also a friend and part of the family. He went with me when we picked up Molly to bring her to her forever home. When he comes up for breakfast he always brings her 4 small (they are about an inch long) doggie treats (milkbone type). He bought them himself and it is part of their interaction time. She is always patient about waiting as he only gives them to her after he has finished his breakfast and she has finished hers. The gentleman is 63 and I think it would be quite upsetting to both of them if I told him that he could no longer do this. She only gets the 4 in the morning. She is a chocolate lab and weighs about 50-60 pounds.
Her health is very good but I am very concerned now.

Den-Den doesn't have a problem, but he sure gets indignant if hubby lets it rip when Den-Den's under the covers! I know dogfood has been discussed at length on this forum, but I haven't seen Milkbones discussed before. What's better, Milkbones or Vitabones? I get the multi-flavor Vitabones for Den-Den and he loves them.

Glass, is that like dentabone?
Okay, if I shouldn't give him the milkbones, and don't have the time to make treats, what's the best thing for treats to give? The milkbones were big and I always broke them up.... I'd still like something small to give him. Any ideas?

Vitabones look similar to Milkbones and come in a similar box. When I buy them, I dump them into a tall, glass refrigerator jar which sits on the dish cabinet. I don't still have the box to look at the ingredients. Den-Den goes to the jar and woofs whenever guests have left or when we've come home from visiting because he knows - good boys get treat-bones! He'll stand under the jar and woofs until he gets one.
