Any suggestions, Billie passing swamp gas

This little one passes wind worse than my Greyhound. I feed her about 1/4 can Fancy Feast with some dry mixed in, then a little dry in the evening. I'm not sure if it's the wet or dry food she can't digest. It's hard to get a handle on it because I'm feeding three other cats.

I'm feeding them Friskies Chef Blend. Is that bad?

it ain't great, that's for sure.

I'd suggest you try some Felidae, and see if that swamp gas doesn't evaporate.

PS - you'll probably get all kinds of suggestions on food, I haven't got time to go into everything here--gotta wrap it up for the night, there are lots of threads in the "Health and Nutrition" section, but whatever you choose to switch to, make the switch gradually over a period of 5 days or so, gradually mixing the new in.

Yeah, I would suggest switching her diet to see if that makes an improvement. If you want to keep her on dry food in addition to the wet food, try switching it to a higher quality food like Innova. You can give her smaller portions because you'll notice she won't eat as much of the higher quality food since it's not packed with any fillers like Friskies is. Then you'll start noticing she will poop less, and maybe she will stop her passing-gas but I am just guessing.

Felidae is an excellent food and a good recommendation. My two cents on it is that it actually made my cats gassy so I switched it. All cats are different though, like humans. You know how sour kraut makes certain humans gassy and others not.
