I haven't noticed gas with with Gibby hardly at all. I know Ollie used to have gas issues, believe me you knew it, lol. I do make sure to have Pepcid on hand for him.
Lori... after trying to feed Gibby different formulas of his EP,,,I have finally been convinced that it doesn't work for all dogs....so settled on the one that he wasn't having problems with...and have stuck just with it and we have had no problems since...except for this episode. That formula is Chicken based. And in the past when I put him on bland diet...it was chicken and he recovered from his problems on it. I have been making him ground beef for bland lately only this time I did make him cooked checken thighs and rice.
Do you think that if it was Chicken he would have gotten over this while eating it? It started Thursday afternoon, by Fridays he had diarrhea and by Sat. everything was fine. Today he is back on kibble. I "talk" ( by email ) to Julie... Gibbys breeder lots. We just had a conversation about their size and all....she has his brother, keeping him to show but can't because he didn't grow as large as they thought. Over the past, he has shown no health issues.....and she gets mad at me for not feeding Gibby like she does.................. ( get this........... ) Pedigree!
I don't know if I wrote this or not...sorry if I did but the way this format is set up its too hard to go back to read thru once you start replying....but a girl on the Great Dane Forum says her dog does this everytime there is a full moon....... and there was. Thought THAT interesting and will watch that one for the fun of it.
