Is Lassie Gassy?
Once again, Dr. Becker gracefully approaches a stinky subject that many of our furry friends experience--GAS. While some of us enjoy bathroom humor and blaming our farts on the dog, in reality frequent gas for our critters is no laughing matter. Dr. Becker talks about the causes behind it--some more serious than others--and how we can help Lassie have a healthier digestive system in her article, "Which Is Worse... The Offensive Odor or the Underlying Condition?"
Story at-a-glance ---> Click here for the full article
- Most problems of flatulence in dogs have a dietary cause. Less common reasons for gassiness can include swallowing excessive amounts of air while eating, and breed predisposition
- Certain gastrointestinal diseases can have flatulence as a symptom. These include inflammatory bowel disease, pancreatitis, and exocrine pancreatic insufficiency
- Additional causes of flatulence in dogs include the disruption of a healthy microbiome from intestinal parasites, and antibiotic therapy
- Addressing the diet and ensuring balanced GI microflora are the first steps in resolving a problem with canine gassiness
