If you are new to having a French Bulldog, one of the things that you may have noticed is that they fart a lot. Flatulence is innate not only to Frenchies but also to English Bulldogs. The reason behind this is their extremely sensitive stomachs. Compared to other breeds, French Bulldogs are known for this. Some things can exacerbate the situation. For instance, if you are going to change their diet, you’d notice that they tend to fart a lot. And also, they are known for having their food to come down faster than other breeds.
You can also blame the brachycephalic breeds’ structure for this characteristic among bulldogs. These types of dogs have flat and shushed faces and they tend to swallow a lot of air too. Combined by the fact that they tend to get their food down faster than most breeds, then you have a recipe for a lot of farting episodes.
Though this is the case, bulldogs are fun to be around with. French bulldogs in particular are friendly to children and other dogs. They are also not picky eaters. You can easily tweak their diet to make sure that they aren’t too gassy.
