Does Your Dog Eat Like Every Meal Will Be Their Last

by Andy Machin

Well, if you dog does wolf down his food he will be swallowing air as well as his dinner. Get ready for a gas outbreak. And that can be a smelly episode. Here are a few suggestions which may help to reduce flatulence in your dog.

Try feeding him on a little and often basis. Give him the same amount of food as he would normally have in a day but spread it out a bit. Instead of feeding your dog one or two portions of food per day, divide the daily ration into smaller portions and feed the dog more frequently.

Cut out or drastically reduce those little treats and leftovers from your dinner. If he gets bloated, you know what will happen. Sure it?s hard to resist throwing him an extra piece of doggie chocolate or sneak him a bit of meat from your plate when he comes begging, but resist if you can. Your boy (or girl) will have less chance of getting flatulence

Walkies. It?s your dog?s favourite word. Man, how he knows what it means. Take your dog for regular exercise. He needs it anyway and it?ll help to keep his insides healthy as well thus aid digestion in general and reduce flatulence. And while you?re out on your walk, there?s a better chance that any gas build up will find a way out naturally and it?ll be gone before you get home.

You will never completely cut out flatulence on your dog. Well, do you think you?ll never get the odd bit of excess wind, of course you will. And it?s the same for your dog. That said, what you?ve read here should help to reduce your dog?s flatulence and those nasty smells. Plus your doggie might just feel all the better for it.

In closing ? at all times have the best interests of your dog at heart. Consult a vet immediately if you have cause to think your dog is unwell, suffering and requires professional attention.
