Default cat food to help with bad gas?

One of the people that have adopted a kitten from me asked a question that I don't have an answer for!

Her kitty has very bad gas. She's farting all the time. She's currently feeding Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul. Anyone have any suggestions on what to feed to help a cat be less gassy?

She's about 1.5 years old, and yes she's had a fecal test and has been wormed.

I've found with my clients that cat foods with grains can cause some minor bloating and gas because it sits in the digestive tract longer and expands releasing air. This is usually solved by moving to a grain free preferably canned or raw diet, sometimes the grain free kibble can work but that depends on the cat.

Also probiotics will help the digestive tract and can help gas and other digestive issues. Just make sure it's 1 billion micro organisms or more, that's human grade anything less isn't really worth using since it wouldn't be potent enough.

She should be able to get probiotics from her vet for fairly cheap.

Otherwise, suggest giving the kitty a bit of yogurt every day, maybe a teaspoon or two.
