Default Lightning is a Fart Machine!

OK, I know old dogs fart, but lord, Lightning could power a windmill with what he is putting out these days. And they really really stink, which they didn't before. Is this normal age-related stuff, or should I take him to the vet? I switched his food from Iams to Blue Max several weeks ago. Could that be causing the increased output? It's really getting to be a problem (for me at least).

I don't know if it warrants a vet visit but you might think about some Vick's vapor rub and a gas mask for yourself.

You know what they say about old men! Lightening is just an old man -- quite normal behaviour!

Wwormmie behave yourself -- you are not to be telling family secrets!

It's quite normal, my last dog (15yrs old) was horrendous, some night I could hardly stay in the room it was so bad. It's not an age thing though - my two youngsters could melt paint with their contributions to global warming.

Could be the food. Light a candle.

certainly it took me years to figure it out but Fischer for instance is very gassy and stinky if he eats chicken, avoiding food with chicken (not that easy made a big improvement) he is eat more an gaining the weight he loss of the past few years.

My last Basset Chloe her senior years were brutal. My mom n law used to think she was a methane plant. My younglings are fart free, unless they get a bite of pork or a brussel sprout. They are OFF limits in this house!

Oh no poor you Id also go along with it being the food if she didnt do it to this extent before you changed it on her. Id burn the candle but with a candle warmer then you dont have to worry about it blowing up your house
