Best Dog Foods for Flatulence – Top 5

#1 Lily’s Kitchen Adult Dry Dog Food

Lily’s Kitchen Adult Dry Dog Food

Lily’s Kitchen dry dog food is available in a variety of different flavours and sizes. They offer Chicken & Duck, Lovely Lamb, Organic Chicken & Vegetable, Senior Salmon and Trout, Venison & Duck, and Puppy Chicken and Salmon. The sizes vary from 1kg, 2.5kg, 7kg, 12kg and 14kg.

The Chicken & Duck contains 31% freshly made chicken and 7% duck, Lovely Lamb has 32% lamb, and Organic Chicken & Vegetable is made with 29% fresh chicken.

Senior Salmon and Trout has 44% freshly prepared meat: 13% salmon, 13% trout, and 18% turkey. The recipe for this dry dog food is especially formulated for senior dogs.

Venison & Duck consists of 35% freshly prepared meat: 13% venison, 12% duck and 9% salmon.

Puppy Chicken and Salmon is made with 24% chicken, 7% chicken liver, and 7% salmon. It is designed specifically for puppies from 8 months up to 14 months old.

All the dry dog food by Lily’s Kitchen is naturally low in fat with added glucosamine and chondroitin to help ensure good bone and joint support, prebiotics for healthy digestion, and essential nutrients to boost our dog’s immune system.

The adult dry food can be fed to dogs of any breed from 4 months onwards, so it is completely safe for young dogs to consume. All their food is grain free, packed full of fruits, vegetables, and botanical herbs, and is nutritionally complete.  There are no derivatives, preservatives or fillers – all the ingredients in these recipes are natural and healthy.

They are always made with freshly prepared meat and offal, and they never use meat meal, rendered meat, or fillers.  This is highly important as it ensures that the food is of excellent quality.

There’s salmon oil (in all except from Lovely Lamb) which is a great source of Omega 3 fatty acids that help keep your dog’s coat soft and shiny, as well as boosting the health of your dog’s heart and brain.

Also, as a sort of bonus, they only use eco packaging, so they care about the planet as much as they care about our dogs.

Lastly, but most importantly, if you happen to have a dog with bad gas, you can give him dry dog food by Lily’s Kitchen as it will help with that. Plenty of dog owners have reported great success with that. I assume because of the high-quality ingredients and preparation of the food, this makes it arguably the best dog food to prevent gas.

Pros

  • Freshly prepared meat and offal
  • Very nutritious
  • Several flavours and sizes
  • No fillers or preservatives

Cons

  • Not all dogs like it

#2 Burgess Sensitive Hypoallergenic Dog Food

Burgess Sensitive Hypoallergenic Dog Food

Burgess sensitive hypoallergenic dog food is available in the flavours British Lamb, Scottish Salmon, Puppy Turkey and Adult Dog Turkey, and in sizes of 2kg or 12.5kg bags.

Puppy Turkey dry food has 26% rice and turkey and being a hypoallergenic recipe, this means that it’s free from maize, wheat, eggs, dairy, beef, and soya. It’s perfect for dogs with sensitive tummies because it has only one source of protein and one carbohydrate source. This dog food is formulated especially for juniors, ensuring that in only contains ingredients which can benefit growing puppies by supporting healthy growth.

The British Lamb dry dog food is made with rice (min 26%), which is a gentle carbohydrate and a great source of energy, and lamb (26%) is a highly digestible protein that is packed with essential amino acids and dietary fats. This means that lamb helps our dogs sustain energy, and it also has plenty of minerals and vitamins that support muscle development.

The recipe also contains Lucerne, also known as Alfalfa, which is a nutritious plant and a great source of Vitamins A, C and K. These vitamins are essential for a dog’s health.  You can also find Taurine, which is an amino acid, and it can boost eye health, cardiac function, immune system health and function, as well as other things.

Scottish Salmon is a hypoallergenic recipe, and so it’s wheat gluten and maize-free. It has a single protein (min 26% salmon) and a single carbohydrate (min 26% rice), making it perfect for dogs with sensitive tummies.

It also contains beet pulp (5%), which is an excellent source of fiber, and it adds bulk to your dog’s stool. In turn, this can also help if your dog has bad gas because the health of his stool would be improved and therefore flatulence should reduce, or at least be less smelly.

Beet pulp doesn’t just promote colon health, but it’s a great source of energy as well.

The recipe has 1% fish oil, and it supports our dog’s heart health, reduces itchy and/or flaky skin, promotes a soft and silky coat, reduces shedding, boost the immune system, and relieves allergies and joint pain. As you can see, fish oil is one of the best supplements that can be added to our dog’s diet.

Adult Dog Turkey contains 26% turkey and rice, the recipe is free from maize, wheat, eggs, dairy, beef, and soya. The yucca and beet pulp in the ingredients are what help minimize the smell of our dog’s stool.

Dry dog food by Burgess are all free from artificial flavours, colours and preservatives.

If you are asking – my dog has bad gas what can I give him? Well I highly recommend this food that will likely settle your dog’s stomach and whole digestive system. Because a lot of the sensitive ingredients have been excluded from this dog food. It works great as an option that really stop and prevents against flatulence.

Pros

  • Hypoallergenic
  • Reduces flatulence
  • No artificial flavours, colours or preservatives
  • Very nutritious

Cons

  • n/a

#3 Scrumbles Dry Dog Food

Scrumbles Dry Dog Food

Scrumbles Dry Dog Food offer two types – one for large breed of dogs and one for small breeds, both in bags of 2kg.

They are both made with natural ingredients, 60% free run chicken, and there are absolutely no artificial ingredients or added sugar or salt.

With a hypoallergenic recipe, meaning that they’re free from gluten, wheat, potato, dairy, and egg, plus added probiotics, make the food easy to digest and ideal for dogs with delicate tummies.

The dry food for small and medium breeds has medium sized kibble, which is more appropriate for dogs that weigh less than 25kg.

For dogs that weigh 25kg and over, the dog food for large breeds purposefully has larger sized kibble. This is ideal for big dogs, because otherwise with smaller kibble there is the risk that your dog doesn’t chew it properly and just swallows it whole.

The composition of the 60% chicken is made up of: 35.5% freshly prepared chicken, 21% dried chicken, 2% chicken fat, and 1.5% chicken liver. There’s also brown rice (20%), salmon oil, linseed, dried carrot, plenty of minerals, and Vitamins E, A, and D3.

Again this is a great option against flatulence largely due to the sensitive make up of the food and the important trigger foods being admitted.

Pros

  • Natural ingredients
  • No added sugar or salt
  • Smaller kibble for small/medium dogs (and larger for large dogs)

Cons

  • A little bit pricey

#4 Harringtons Adult Dry Food

Harringtons Adult Dry Food

Dry dog food by Harringtons offer a variety of different flavours and sizes: beef with brown rice, chicken (14%) with rice, lamb (26%) and rice (20%), salmon (14%) and potato (14%), and turkey (15%) with veg. The bag sizes vary from 3 x 5kg, 4 x 2kg, 12kg, 15kg, and 18kg.

Since each flavour has only one protein source and one carbohydrate source it’s great for dog’s with sensitive stomachs and helps support healthy digestion.

There are no artificial colours or flavours, no dairy, soya, or added wheat. Harringtons is suitable to be fed to dogs of all breeds from 8 weeks onwards.

In the ingredients you can find kelp, which is a natural source of vitamins, minerals and trace elements, as well as citrus extracts and added vitamins to boost and support your dog’s immune system. A balanced ratio of Omega 6 and 3 fatty acids help maintain a glossy coat, and yucca reduces unpleasant odours from flatulence.

The vitamins this recipe contains are Vitamin A, D3, and E, and some of the minerals are Iron, Zinc, and Copper.

One of my personally favorite dog foods and one that most dogs can enjoy without any side effects like flatulence – definitely worth your consideration.

Pros

  • Great for sensitive tummies
  • Free from artificial colours or flavours
  • No wheat, dairy, or soya
  • Lots of vitamins and minerals

Cons

  • Too many carbs for some dogs (can cause weight gain)

#5 Autarky Hypoallergenic Dry Dog Food

Autarky Hypoallergenic Dry Dog Food

Autarky dry dog food has a hypoallergenic recipe and comes in a couple of different flavours: adult chicken and rice, adult salmon and rice, mature lite chicken and rice, mature lite salmon and rice, and puppy chicken and rice. Any of those flavours can be purchased in 6kg or 12kg bags.

The adult chicken and rice dry food consists of 20% protein and 12% fat. It’s packed with high levels of essential fatty acids and Vitamin B which help maintain healthy skin. Added herbs and natural antioxidants boost the immune system as well.

Adult salmon and rice consist of 24% protein and 14% fat, and this diet has been designed to keep your dog’s energy at a maintained level throughout the day. Salmon is a great natural source of Omega 3 fatty acids which help keep your dog’s joints flexible, benefits their immune system, and boosts the health of their heart and kidneys.

Mature lite chicken and rice is a hypoallergenic, naturally balanced dry dog food with a moderate calorie content in order to prevent weight gain. This makes it ideal for mature dogs who are entering their senior years, or even for dogs that are overweight and need to reduce their calorie intake. That’s why the diet only has 17% protein and 17% fat.

Mature lite salmon and rice is the same as the other mature lite food, except it has 22% protein and 5% fat instead.

The puppy chicken and rice dry food has smaller sized kibble, purposefully for junior dogs with small mouths. It contains 24% protein and 14% fat, and it’s balanced to supply a moderate amount of energy to encourage steady growth. There’s also Vitamin E, fatty acids, and Taurine which support neural development and learning, and the added antioxidants and herbs help protect your puppy’s immune system. Also, prebiotics promote digestive health, and the recipe is completely wheat gluten and soya free, which makes it perfect for dogs that suffer from sensitive stomachs and/or itchy, flaky skin.

Autarky dog food are very high quality and well thought out to be healthy for dogs but also easily on their stomach and digestive systems. While not necessarily the best option definitely one worth considering.
