What food is she on? Food really does make a difference to mine. He is unbearable even on a different flavour of the one that suits him.

Natural yoghurt can help and is quite cheap - just put a spoonful on top at mealtimes.

The solution is most likely to be found by changing food. Our ddog had 3 foods before finding one that suited and now we get small firm poo and no wind.

Grains tend to ferment in their digestive tract and a grain free food would be a good place to start. Also avoid any food with nasty additives/sugars, then try foods with different proteins. We avoid chicken, eggs and trout. Also avoid treats, if our ddog gets any unsuitable treats we know about it later!

You could always try a goats milk yoghurt.

Mine have always had yoghurt.

Your problem is your food I'm afraid - it will have cereal listed as the main ingredient - you need a food that list the main ingredient to be the meat such as salmon or chicken (not meat derivatives). The only food that doesn't give mine terrible wind is Burgess Sensitive with Salmon and Rice.
