The expulsion of odiferous gas is usually a problem of maldigestion of food. Ammonia and hydrogen sulfide gasses are produced when undigested food is fermented in the colon. Another cause of flatulence may be the presence of bad bacteria in the colon. Giving your dog digestive enzymes and probiotics (good bacteria) in the diet often eliminates flatulence.
