First of, if your dog has chronic flatulence problem, you should check it out with your veterinarian. Some illness can cause gas build ups, like intestinal or pancreatic disease.
Other thing is, commercial foods should be changed for higher quality foods, and at the end, even with high quality you should experiment to see what ingredient is problematic; mostly dogs react to carbohydrates, or to only one source of carbs in food, like peas.

Simethicone works by binding small bubbles of gas into large ones that are easy to eliminate, but it is important to notice that this drug do not affect the cause of forming the bubbles at the first place.
