Default Fromm makes them gassy?

Hey everyone! I'm feeding both my dogs Fromm, Boss gets the adult formula and Ava gets the puppy formula. Ever since I've been feeding it to them they have both been very gassy! And their poo smells horrible as well! I know this is a quality food and all the ingredients check out, so I don't know why it causes them to do this? They do not get any table scraps, I do give them each fish oil vitamins daily. Anyone else having this problem?

Anythin to do with fish will make poop smell horrid... KC came with from puppy and I hated the fishy breath smell she had everytime she kissed me so I switched to wellness core and never looked back

It could be the type of fish oil you are giving...or the amount.
Could also be that you are overfeeding.

How long have they been eating it? How long was the transition to 100% Fromm?

I feed Ava 1/2 cup daily and Boss 4 cups daily so I don't think over feeding is the issue. Ava has been on Fromm for about 2 weeks now and Boss has been on it for about 5-6 months now. The transition for both was properly done with 75% old 25% new for 3-4 days 50/50 for 3 more days 25% old 75% new for 3 days and 100% afterwards if the transition seems to be going well. They both get GNC fish oil vitamins from Petsmart. Ava gets 1/2 vitamin daily and Boss gets 2 daily.
