When Gibson’s human changed his food, it had an unexpected outcome that took the French Bulldog by surprise – he began to fart! Gibson’s not-so-silent flatulence was apparently caused after eating new food and he would do this each time he went out for a walk until he was able to adjust to his new diet.
Watch what Gibson the French Bulldog does after he surprises himself with a toot!
Flatulence is often caused by foods that are difficult for a dog to digest. Food items such as soybeans, peas, legumes, milk products, high-fat foods, meat treats, and table scraps will commonly cause dogs to fart.
Chronic flatulence can point to a poorly digestible diet or a health issue such as a food allergy or a GI disorder and should not be ignored as it can cause serious discomfort to the dog not to mention a possible health risk for your dog.
If your dog’s farting becomes chronic you may want to visit your veterinarian or speak with a pet nutritionist to see if a change of diet will help your dog.
