Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible
Ok so we have ruled out pancreatitis which is good. May I ask why you have chosen his particular current diet? Have his farts got worse since changing to a high protein diet?
Ok. Well if his stools are normal then I think it is unlikely that there is a 'medical' basis per se for the farting. It is probably more a case of sensitive digestion and certain ingredients not suiting him so well. I believe pugs in general are quite prone to flatulence.
My dog for example has pretty bad farts at times, we just have to live with it, but raw hind chews in particular can make it unbearable so we avoid those with her!
Pancreatic enzyme supplements would only be of benefit if he has pancreatic insufficiently, he has not had a specific test for that yet as far as I can see but the clinical signs would be somewhat different to what you have described.
Some people say that giving activated charcoal tablets at meal times can help, although I've personally never tried it
Yes that sounds like a reasonable plan. If that doesn't work then a full diet change may be needed, you may have to do a bit of trial and error to see if anything in particular ingredient wise makes it better or worse
