  • The part that makes him a bulldog! :0) j/k. Seriously though they are VERY prone to gassiness. Butterflyblue is right though if he gets people food cut that out first. Also make are he is on a premium diet like Blue Buffalo or Nature Recipe or at least a good name brand food like Purina ONE. The beefy treats can cause gas as well.

  • Not much you can do, they tend to be more gassy because of their pushed in face and how they intake oxygen. Absolutely no people food what so ever and you might want to try calling or googling to see if there are any brands that have special food that is easy to digest.

  • Try corn, it's not digestible and just a filler. There are several corn free diets to choose from. It helped my american bulldog a LOT!

  • brachiocephalic (sp?), dogs with smushed faces are gassy because of the way the breathe. All the snorting and snorting attacks make them really really farty.

    I have an english/french mix and a boston terrier, sooooo many dog farts...

  • Since I switched my dogs to a raw diet the gas problem is gone.

  • Try Solid Gold Hund n flocken. I know this food made a big difference for my friend's bulldogs. Also I have an American Bulldog who rarely has gas, she is fed Fromm's Surf and Turf. My breed can have gas issues too.
