I once read a statistic that many hundreds of thousands of people seek medical care for excessively smelly flatulence at the prompting of their spouses. Doctors rarely prescribe anything because, simply, gas is a fact of life.

If your dog’s gas is incessant and completely intolerable, then a diet change may help a bit. And by a bit, I mean a bit. A highly digestible diet, perhaps one low in sulfur, may reduce the volume and smell.

If your dog is simply passing gas normally, which all dogs (and all people) do, then there may be a more straightforward option: Buy a fan.
