The human body was designed to burp, to exhale any extra air we’ve taken in from drinking, eating and even breathing.

Dogs are known to burp in people’s faces since they’ll come right to them after eating or drinking. If you feed your dog food as an example it’s likely that they’ll sit down in their bowl until they’ve finished their meal. Then they’ll find you. They might be seeking you due to the fact that they’re looking for more food, or because they’ve finished eating their food and want to relax.

It’s hard to grasp that dogs don’t experience the same way as we do about things like pooping, burping, peeing, flinching and other bodily functions. Humans are a bit different from the animal kingdom in this respect. We are human and have an understanding of the proper manners to conduct these behaviors however dogs don’t. They might view these actions as not just entirely natural, but beneficial and helpful. If they spit on you face it’s like they’re offering you an ointment or kissing your cheek!

What’s Causing Your Dog to Burp?
Eating and Drinking Too Fast
Belching is typically due to drinking or eating quickly. As with humans, dogs can get overly excited at appearance of food, which leads them to eat too fast.
If a dog is eating in a hurry, they’re swallowing air that is stuck in the stomach. To let out this air trapped it is possible for your dog to release a healthy spout every now and then. This is the main reason for a good healthy, regular burp to flush gases from your digestive tract.
There are some fairly simple ways to avoid this. Slow bowls come with built-in obstacles that make dogs slow down their eating speed than they would if they were uninhibited. They’re not expensive and make a huge difference for fast eaters.
If you’re looking to take the more economical alternative, you can place some balls or toys in their bowls that they have to navigate through in order to reach their food.
In the event that your pet is an avid drinker, an effective trick is to add the addition of ice cubes to your pet’s water bowl.
Burping from Aging
If you notice an increase in the volume of your dog’s phlegm this could be due to the age of your dog. As dogs get older they experience a slowing of their digestion. There is so much wear and tear accumulates on the esophagus throughout the years due to food passing through it which causes an increase in the amount of burping.
Why does my dog keep burping?
The reason dogs burp is due to the same reasons humans do. There’s a lot of gases in our stomachs and it’s in need of a way to expel it in one manner or another. This is why there’s nothing you need to worry regarding if you dog appears to be constantly burping every day and there’s not anything you can take care of to stop it all times.
However keep in mind that dogs don’t communicate with us in the same way that humans do. That is they aren’t able to talk to us and let us know if there’s something going on. If your dog has suddenly started burping all of the time and you’ve noticed other gastrointestinal-related symptoms as well. It’s time for you to make the appointment of your vet to further investigate the issue.
