Ideally a raw food diet should help cut the amount of gas your pet creates. However when first beginning with a raw diet this is very possible. It is also possible when switching proteins. For dogs with gas we recommend adding a digestive enzyme to their daily meals, and many dogs (particularly those with sensitive digestive systems) will benefit from daily digestive enzymes for their entire life.

Raw food is rich in enzymatic activity whereas cooked dry kibble is devoid of enzymes. You dog’s digestive system during the transition period from dry to raw must compensate for the new diet and therefore the digestive discomfort. Supplemental digestive enzymes can be very beneficial as they can help speed up this transition process and provide needed good digestive bacteria to break down food.
