The smell, the smell!

Staffy bowels are grim.

Raw diet is not an option for us right now, although I did try it briefly.

Kibble-wise:

Originally on Hills - bowels smelly
Tried James Wellbeloved - bowels still smelly
Purina Beta - the smelll!!!!

Any suggestions for kibble that will reduce the emissions?

We found burns to be the best for our previously stinky one!

Wonderful grin thanks!

My dog is on Burns and can still clear a room. That might be down to his dishwasher forraging, though blush

We're a four greyhound household, so I feel your pain. grin

Things improved enormously when we switched over to raw, but when they feel like it, they can still create a miasma of stench. Also not helped at the moment by one grey who is now mostly toothless and has simultaneously decided that she no longer likes the raw food so is trying out a range of other feeds with "interesting" effects. On Monday afternoon, I cracked and dragged DH to our local Yankee Candle shop where we loaded up the car with industrial quantities.

We found James Wellbeloved the least stinky of the kibbles, though it varied with flavour.

HullyGullys bowel emissions are best with Skinners with rice range. And puppy farts can normally be deadly so we are thrilled with the improvement

Skinners with rice...added to my list.

James Wellbeloved turned his <ahem> emissions absolutely rancid.

I recommend Orijen dried dog food.

Another bonus to Skinner is the price wink

It must be a staff thing, as my dog is the same

It's not a staffy thing , there's some kind of doodle dog that walks on the same field as us and the stench hits you about 300 m away . It must be chronic when it goes in the garden!

Abra1d - I love my dog. I really do. I don't love the price of Orijen shock

Nature diet helped here...not kibble but packs.

God apart from the fish one, never buy the fish one.

ThunderboltKid Fri 28-Sep-12 14:44:14

Beancurd...I recently made that mistake!! How can something that usually smells so inoffensive smell SO bad?! Think we're down to the last 3 packs in the box, and then never fish again!!

Ha, oh it is beyond grim.

Once a local seller told me there had been a fatality in one of their product vats, I opened my mouth to comment on how awful for those involved but instead I said, 'Christ hope it wasn't the fish one!' the staff member looked at me like I was a heartless freak. Don't think he had ever opened a fish pack though.

Yummy fish grin

So I think we're going to try Burn's potato and pork.
