    Let me know how it goes.

    There was a Dobe that came for boarding having had bloat, it's owner would bring him to the kennels with a cake tin. You know the one with the hole in the centre.

    We had a group of six labs that came into the kennels for training for various organisations, hence they were selected for their food drive.

    We would put a brick in their bowls otherwise they ate so fast the thru it up.

    I don't actually have access to any bricks but I'm sure I'll find something I can use - knowing Charlie though he'll probably try and eat that too! Hopefully this helps with his other problem too! You guys are all wonderful!

    farty puppy.

    I'm very happy that I haven't had that problem unless Frosty gets into the compost or lawn clippings or mysterious things in baseball oval hedge.

    Be careful with the table scraps. Avoid cabbage and eggs for a while - makes everybody's farts stinky. And definitely no onions. Onions are bad for dogs anyway and their revenge is the most putrid farts ever.

    I feed Frosty "nutro natural choice" and home made casserole for dogs (no onions or herb flavours added). She has lived on supercoat for a week - and that didn't make her fart either.

    I don't need to slow Frosty's eating down.

    I have neighbour with beagles, one is a slow eater and the other is worse than a hoover. I put the slow eater in a separate bit of the yard with her food. For the fast eater, I load her food - most of it into a treat ball of the sort that drops bits out as she rolls it around. She only gets one or two bits at a time that way, and she's a fast roller. And I chuck the rest out across the yard. Ants don't get a chance to eat any of that either. And by the time she's finished working for her food, the other beagle has also finished and I can let her back into the main yard.

    If you don't have access to a treat ball, you could try freezing the dog biscuits in stock (use stock cubes or beef consomme soup or make your own by boiling beef or chicken bones with carrots/celery and then straining off the liquid stock). Measure the biscuits into a plastic container (eg ex margarine tub), and fill with cold stock then freeze. Give dog the frozen food. Will definitely slow down the eating rate and doubles as a splinter free bone.

    Dill is supposed to be good for reducing flatulence (or at least the aroma). I haven't tried it but I'd get some dill, plant it in the garden, trim the tips and make tea out of it, ie pour boiling water over the chopped leaf tips, strain off and allow liquid to cool and use this to make frozen dog biscuit balls.

    Also one dog might be fine on one brand of dog biscuits or flavour and rotton on the next if it is allergic to some particular ingredient. I swapped Frosty off advance puppy to nutro natural choice puppy - the only difference is the quality of the ingredients, more chicken flesh and less ground chicken carcass or something, and that has improved her number 2s immensely. I still can't figure out how she could eat supercoat though. When I'm feeling really skint that's probably what she's going to get.

    Sorry such a long post. Masha, do let us know if you find a farting cure for your dog.

    I've made up the satin balls etc but it's time consuming which is fine at the moment but I go back to training next week.

    My two young whippets burn off their food. I've tried Pro-plan Active but it wasn't all that much different to the Sensitive as far as keeping weight on.
    Hmmm, it's expensive but it does work a treat. EVO sold at Pet Goods Warehouse and Pets Paradise. Its American and I believe these are the only two importers. I truly believe that this was a big contributing factor that brought GOmez up to speed so quickly!

    With regard to feeding a pup, this is what I give the rescues.

    Good vet quaility kibble (not fussy which but MUST be vet quailty and the first 2 ingredients must NOT be cereals but chicken, fish, etc - remembering that we don't feed pei beef as they don't cope well with high protien)

    mixed with

    Aloe Vera juice (1/4 cup) from Safeway
    1/4 cup minced chicken carcass (fresh)
    the above is excellent for growing bones

    Pro Biotic powder (1 x teaspoon for tummies)

    1/2 teaspoon flax seed oil (for skin & coat - may need to be reduced depending on poop sloppiness and/or size of pup)

    The above is twice a day until 16 weeks and then reduced to once a day

    Until 16 weeks they need a third meal per day which should be either chicken wing tips or chicken necks both for healthy gims and teeth.

    Do get her off all cooked food and preferrabley no table scraps!
