Yorkie Farts!

CUTE & INNOCENT STINKER!

Our 1.5 year old started farting 2 days ago!

IT CAN CLEAR A ROOM!
Her diet has been same...
she has eaten nothing unusual...
She farts while sleeeping....
Usually farts between 3pm - 10pm...

It's the strangest thing.
So I looked online and found this

It's the funniest thing!
Some Yorkies have loud farts....
some have silent killers....
some fart in the car....
some fart while sleeping!
Anyone else have this problem?

Should I consider changing her diet?
She has eaten the same brand (Royal Canin for Yorkies)
since birth. I don't know what to do!

HELP!

HI
I have a 2 year old Yorkie and she also farts. She will do it awake or asleep. I beleive that it is from what she eats. I feed her Dry food that has dried chicken pieces in it. I will continue feeding her this and deal with the smell because since I brought her home I have had trouble getting her to eat anything. She is still just 2lbs. So anything that I can get her to eat is a good thing. I will tell you that I beleive that the farting comes from the chicken. But she is eating and that is the important thing. It is not as bad as a person when she does this so just think of that when your Yorkie does let loose! Good Luck

Yikes - good luck with that. Our dogs usually get into something outside to cause this 'anomaly'. Sorry I haven't much more advice than that.

Ours will be 2 years old this month. She has had occasional bouts with flatulence since I started giving her human treats. I am not sure which ones cause it, but I strongly belive that is what causes it! I do think it is meat also, as that is usually what I give her. Sometimes she gets a peice or two of almond or a baby carrot. But I don't notice any "aromas" from that. Of course, it is also from swallowed air,so just like people, farts are gonna happen ;)

Miss Trixie

ONLY eats dry food - she was raised only on Royal Canin Yorkie - puppy - and now eats Royal Canin Yorkie adult.....she never gets human food. I just tried to change her food to Innova - the farting has subsided somewhat....it has been 2 days....we'll see what happens next!

I am the proud owner of a 6 year old gasser...I mean Yorkie..Shiloh will smile as he cuts loose...he's so cute, it had to be a main line break...not my dog...but to my dismay..it's Shiloh the gasser. We then trade dogs...we have 4, so I'll rotate to a non-tooter..life is so short to deal with silent-but-deadly gas...I don't know how such a foul odor can come from such a small dog...but he's mine and I can hold my breath and love him.
