Question How do you address this "unsavory" dog issue?

Let me just break the ice and raise the topic: dog farts.

I know that like humans, dogs just have their days. But Nigel is an entirely different animal, and I'm guessing most Greyhound owners are subject to the same digestive difficulties. Have you found anything in particular that does a good job of clearing the clouds? When Nigel gets on a streak it's just wrong, and I'm guessing that there are ways to keep his posterior barking under control

Truffles and Sola are labs, and they have stomachs of steel by comparison. But when something does set them off, they put Nigel to shame, and you don't want to be around to witness that, trust me.

Aside from yogurt, what have you found that works?

The boys Have Super Farts!!!! Too the end I have thought one of them has pooed in the house. I once searched for an hour for poo that wasn't there. Murphy can't eat pork and Matt can't have certain beef stuff. Thank dog they don't bug eachother for the other ones food

THe 'cork' option took me a minute..why on earth would you feed your dog cork?? haa haaaa Now I get it!
I've discovered that nothing sets off Scruff like a good feed of venison. I, too, wasted much time looking for doggy surprise, only to realize it was just gas...... JUST gas..sigh.

That's the only issue he's really had. I feel for owners of dogs with delicate bellies.
