Ok, I’ve always thought that my Labrador Retriever puppy might be part goat due to the way she eats grass, but now I’m starting to think that my supposedly purebred lab might have a little Bulldog in her too.
Why? Well this weeks she’s been a farting machine!
She’s never been one to pass much gas. Oh occasionally when she’s squatted to do a movement we’ll hear a little phwtttt, but that’s about it.
She was just lying on the floor sleeping near me a few minutes ago and I actually heard her fart five or six times! Stinky ones too!
We haven’t changed her diet (well other than to eliminate Nutro Natural Choice Large breed puppy food about a month ago due to concerns as several dogs have fallen severely ill or died after eating it lately!) or anything else. The only big change for her is that she went into heat a week ago Wednesday or Thursday (10 or 11 days ago). I’m really starting to think that hormonal changes might be causing her gas.
I wonder if her gas is causing my headache? There’s a little more methane in the air these days – in my home at least! Yes – I still have a headache/migraine – it seems to change in severity so I’m calling it a combo. I’ve had this headache since sometime Monday … about the time Midnights farts really started up. See … there might be a connection.
I wonder if you can give dogs Beano? If you can maybe I could add a few drops to her meals for a day and see if it helped? 😉
