Dog Thong Flatulence Filter
image I realize that flatulence filters are real products (though I have had a lot of people tell me they thought they were a hoax). But I suspect that the Dog Thong Flatulence Filter has to be a joke. I mean, how well could it possibly work? It just doesn't seem large enough to fully contain and filter all the gas a dog can produce. And imagine having to strap it back on Fido every time he comes in from the yard.

This reminds me of a "doggy diaper" that I saw somewhere on the web about 3 years ago. That also appeared to be a real product. I suspect this product will catch on no better smile

Some of the other products look fake too. Like a fart mask for a retirement home. It says they're manufactured in Hawaii and Iowa. Most companies usually say "made in USA."

It is a real product and it really works. All the products are tested and must pass our tests. Try a Dog Thong or a human Flatulence Filter. It uses a simple technology and thousands of users think it is great, read the website, http://www.flat-d.com

It doesn't 'hold all of the gas,' as you mention, which is why it is plausible. It's, in essence, a fart filter. Acoustic foam muffles the sound of the fart, and carbon filters remove the parts of the fart that are so stinky. Pretty clever,really.
