    I love the Innova product but I had stopped feeding it awhile ago because I needed to figure out what my ACD was getting gassy from. It was either the food, rawhide or both. I took the rawhide away and started feeding Natural Balance dog food and the gas went away. I eventually wanted to start him on the Evo again and did so this week and he is having gas because of it. I still and never will again give him rawhide because it was causing him problems. He only gets raw meaty bones now ;) Do you think all the protein in the Evo is causing him gas and maybe if I try the regular Innova dry it will be better for him? I am still mixing the Evo with what is left of the Natural balance and doing it slowly but the gas is terrible. What do you think?
    Thanks! :)

    It's his system getting used to the richness of the product. After I switched Sawyer from Royal Canin to Innova Adult...OMG the gas would almost kill you. But it does go away, I promise! Buy some nose plugs and good incense in the meantime.

    Try a good probiotic supplement.

    My guess is that the high fat content is causing peoblems - protein is generally well tolerated. Some dogs have issues with potatoes though, so that could be a problem as well.
