      Update on Thor's room clearing burps

      Husband and I were just discussing this the other day, and I figured I owed an update since I posted about it here originally.

      Last May I posted about Thor's awful stinky burps. Most agreed to try a different food, but to wait until we were done with our move and he was settled in.
      Unrelated, I posted in June about switching his food since I couldn't find his regular food in our new town.

      Well, I'm happy to say that his stinky burps have disappeared entirely. We made no changes except his food. He's done extremely well on the NutriSource grain free turkey and sweet potato. I also drizzle an egg yolk over one meal a day. For treats he still gets frozen raw beef marrow bones (found a local butcher who gives them to us!), carrots, apples, and the Wet Noses crunchy cookies (love when they have the big boxes at CostCo).

      He's also shedding and itching less, but that could be environmental rather than food. We unfortunately had to make the food change right around when we moved, so it's hard to tell which variable made a difference.

      I bet Thor is happy he has no more stinky burps. It is true that you can smell your own burp, fart-I'm not sure about(maybe a guy thing).

      Glad that settled down. Hard situation to track down.

      Got me to thinking, Archie burps very seldom, at least around me.

      Ruger burps all the time. He's always been a burpy dog. Loud ones but they never smell. Glad Thor's stinky burps went away.

      Glad Thor's burps settled down, maybe the water depending on what they filter.
