Yes, you can certainly use Gas-X if your dog seems to have discomfort from gas pains. There are a number of other over-the-counter product that are similar. The active ingredient in Gas-X is simethicone, and you can just give 1/4 the adult human dose.
You can also give Beano with a meal. But even though these products may eliminate gas distension or pains, they don't guarantee your dog won't still be flatulent. For that, you may need to experiment with some "sensitive stomach" diets, or discuss other diagnostic or treatment options with your veterinarian.
Dr. Jeff, Thank you for your quick answer to my question. The problem we have is my dog is passing gas and my husband wants to leave her outside and I want her inside, so I am trying to find a solution to use right now so she can be in the house.
I appreciate your prompt response. I will definitely try the gas-x and if it doesn't work, I will just make my husband stay outside. hahaha
Thanks! You have been a great help to me! Happy New Year!
It definitely helps to have that sense of humor! I have a dog that has some serious intermittent gas problems too, so I know what you're dealing with. In fact, everyone who's every owned a dog knows what you're dealing with!
Happy New Year.
