I have been doing a lot of reading online to get some sort of answer to the age old problem of Dobi Gas. As most dog owners that have a dog with a flatulence issue, we start to think about how it affects our relationship with our dog.
We were getting to the point of banishing her to the laundry room at night and the yard during the day. We did the slow change of food, tried activated charcoal tabs, even tried Beano. Nothing could stop the dark cloud that followed her around.
Being in the trained protection dog business, I felt I should know what to do. Having been a German shepherd owner most of my life, gas was only a sporadic issue. Wow, what a difference with the Doberman.
So I read that several people have resorted to living with candles and air fresheners, this was not going to make it in our house. Then I found the answer I was looking for. Low fat plain yogurt, she loves it and man…no gas. Granted it has only been four days, but that is the longest fresh air stretch we have had since she came into our lives.
If this can help only one Dobi lover, I have done my good deed for the day.
