Whilst Boston terriers are great to have around, and have a wonderful personality disposition, they do tend to suffer from some rather nasty problems, including the release of very smelly gas!
This is why it is important that you are very careful with your Boston terrier’s diet, not only to increase good health but also to reduce gas and stop the need for you to wander around the house with your hands clamped over your nose!
The first thing to bear in mind is that whilst dry complete dog foods can be both nutritious and good for your Boston terrier’s dental health, some can be packed with yeast, and this is no good for dog’s that are already susceptible to smelly gas problems!
You do not have to stop giving your dog dry food but you should make sure that you do not go for foods that are high in yeast content. Foods such as Iams provide your dog with complete nutrition and do not contain high yeast levels like some others, so can help to reduce the problem of gas.
Also, no matter how longingly your Boston terrier looks at you with those wallowing brown eyes do not give in to temptation and start feeding him scraps from the table, such as breads and other high yeast products, as once again this will result in the same problem, and it will be time to get a shed load of air fresheners out!
If you want to spice up your dog’s dry food on occasion you can always try mixing it with meat broth, such as chicken or beef broth, which will make the food more moist and add some more flavor without messing with your dog’s digestion and causing gas to be released.
And don’t forget - always make sure that he has some fresh water to drink with his food!
