What causes those odour bombs! And the breeds most likely...
Dr. Chris Brown


Those odour bombs from your bestie can clear a room. But no matter whether they’re repeat offenders or suddenly smelly, the cause remains the same.

So here’s how to identify the culprit and even the breeds most likely to offend with flatulence!

Here’s a crazy fact. There are as many stars in the sky as there are bacteria in the furry family’s digestive system. Ours too. But it can take just one simple thing to throw billions of bacteria out of balance.

Here are the most common causes aka The Flatulent Four!

  • Drinking dirty water (from puddles or ponds)
  • Eating too much (especially fats and carbohydrate)
  • Sneaking poo in the park
  • Picking up a virus


Once those bacteria are out of balance, the bad, odour producing bugs multiply out of control and take over the previously tranquil and calm digestive system.

These bad bacteria then get to work turning your bestie's food into flatulence that soon finds its way to your nostrils. How lovely.


And the breeds most likely?


  1. Pugs
  2. Boxers
  3. Bulldogs
  4. Staffies
  5. French Bulldogs



  1. Persians
  2. Chinchillas
  3. Sphinx

Can you see the common link between most of these? Yes, the flatter the nose the more likely they are to swallow air. Supercharging the gas production!


So what can you do?

Thankfully, it’s now relatively easy to balance their gut and refresh their nostrils. So here goes…

  1. Avoid those flatulent four causes of gut upsets
  2. For quick relief of gut upsets and to get that balance back instantly, a lick of the kaolin and live probiotics in my super tasty Tummy Tamer paste means you might just avoid that trip to the vet altogether.
  3. To keep those millions of bacteria in balance, the prebiotics in my In-Betweeners treats provide food for the good bugs. Ensuring they always keep being the boss.

As confronting as those special smells are, there's nothing like the side eye to see if you noticed. Who says pets don't have a sense of humour...
