  • Why does my dog have gas? Is it from her renal failure? Allergy?

    My Boston Terrier, who is 5, has chronic renal failure. About two years ago, she had acute renal failure and she recovered. However, it is believed that her kidneys were severely damaged and she's using only 1/4 of 1 kidney. Her diet consists of Hills k/d, Epakitin and some cooked chicken/turkey breast. She is allergic to corn (among other things) which is one of the first ingredients in the k/d. She has horrible, constant gas and we don't know what to do about it. Renal failure symptom?
