As far as the gas, try changing the diet to one with more meat and less grain. The lump is possibly an umbilical hernia, whether it is a problem or not depends on how big it is, at any rate it is easly fixed. Most vets will correct an umbilical hernia when the dog is neutered, as long as you mention it.

It;s possible its the chicken, but far, far more dogs are allergic to all the grains in foods like Purina. You need to look for a grain-free food with meat as the first ingredient. If you want to switch from chicken, then do so, but its much more likely to be the grains. Also, dogs need salmon oil in their diet for their coats and skin, even those fed a top quality food. When you do switch foods, make sure you do it gradually (10 - 14 days) to prevent your dog from getting diarrhea.

First of all change the food you give him...that's probably the gassy problem. As for the lump by her belly button...my miniature schnauzer has that too and the Dr said that is just her belly button where she was attached to the mother. You may still want to have it checked out though. Better to be safe than sorry.

Irvine Originally Answered: The fat below your belly button?
There is no way to target a specific area to burn fat. The body distributes fat all over the itself, and it will burn distributed too. That way the question to your answer ''how do i get rid of the lower belly fat'' is; lose even more fat. Soon or later your body will also burn the fat from under your tummy. It is hard to lose this fat, that is why it is called the stubborn fat. What I do to make my clients lose stubborn fat is put them on a diet that is 250 kcalories below there maintenance, and have them performing HIIT 2-3 times a week. This will really melt the fat like no other. Doing crunches is pointless, it will only develop the abs, thus make your tummy look even fatter. This is a formula from my website on how to calculate your diet; First you need to calculate your BMR you can do this with the following formula Women: BMR = 655 + ( 4.35 x weight in pounds ) + ( 4.7 x height in inches ) - ( 4.7 x age in years ) Men: BMR = 66 + ( 6.23 x weight in pounds ) + ( 12.7 x height in inches ) - ( 6.8 x age in year ) To determine your total daily calorie needs, multiply your BMR by the following: If you are sedentary (little or no exercise) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.2 If you are lightly active (light exercise/sports 1-3 days/week) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.375 If you are moderatetely active (moderate exercise/sports 3-5 days/week) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.55 If you are very active (hard exercise/sports 6-7 days a week) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.725 If you are extra active (very hard exercise/sports & physical job or 2x training) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.9 After that substract 200-400 Kcalories from that number. That is how much Kcalories you should be eating everyday. You should devide these Kcalories over 6 meals. With the first being the biggest, and the last being the smallest. Example; 30/20/15/15/10/10. Also, try to eat your carbohydrates in the morning and not after 5o clock. And only drink non-caloric drinks. Next to that you should perform HIIT. This is truly a fatkiller exercise. This is the explanation from my website; Adding HIIT training. HIIT is short for high intensive interval training. It is a very effective form of cardio training. HIIT exercise does not take long to perform, and gives you best bang for your buck. It is very good for fat burning (it raises your BMR all day long!) and it develops a powerful lower body. This is how it works; You roulette between 30 seconds of high intensity training (ex; all out sprinting) and 30-60 seconds of low intensity training. (ex; jogging) Doing 30 seconds of sprinting and 30-60 seconds of jogging equals one set. Beginners should do 4-6 sets of 30 seconds of sprinting and then 60 seconds of jogging (1:2 ratio). Intensity should be added each week. I would suggest doing so by reducing jogging time (work to 1:1 ratio), and/or increasing the number of sets. (after you reach 12-15 sets you should stop increasing the sets and start working on your ratio, or HIIT will not be as beneficial anymore. If you follow all these rules, your fat will melt like snow in the sun, and even your stubborn fat will soon be gone. Ben Vader Personal Trainer
