Pug Farts (oops, Flatulence)
I smell Pug Farts
Is it really true that Pugs fart a lot? Well, some do. Some don’t. I very seldom fart but my sister Phoebe can sure hold her own!
Truthfully, all dogs pass gas occasionally but we Pugs are the King of all Farters! The reason…we are greedy and want to eat as much and as fast as we can. In fact, we eat so fast that sometimes we have to cough AND we swallow air with our food. Just can’t get that food in our bellies fast enough!
What can you do so that we Puggers don’t embarrass your friends and family with our farts? Well for starters you might have to change our diets a bit. WOW…I’m a pug and I’m suggesting you change my Pug Diet. Yep…some foods that contain corn, liver and beef (often found in treats) actually may encourage flatulence. Pug food should be the real deal…meat. No cereal based stuff for us. Meat is more easily digested in most dogs. How about supplements? Prozyme might help Pugs digest food better.
My food bowl is flat. Did you know you can actually buy food bowls that have strategically placed obstacles in them which will make Pugs (or any dog) slow down when they eat their grub? That’s right…you can find them at most pet supply stores. If I slow down when I chow, less airand the result is…I will fart less!
