My dog Jack is a lab/pit mix and was 1yr old on 12/27/08. In the past couple of months my husband and I noticed that Jack has been digging up(from the snow) his own poo and we believe eating it and carrying it around in his mouth. We are wondering if Jack has a defiency of some sort to be doing this. What is going on?
Some dogs just like the taste of poo. There's some OTC stuff, but you can ask you vet about forbid if you like, you put it in their food in an attempt to make the poo taste not as good, if it bothers you. Anyone know some home remedies for this that are safe for the dogs? I might try it on my Li if you do, she's not the only one, but by far the one who loves it the most, LOL. It's really bothering my husband in her case, she's messy about it, and then if she gets overexited (which is alot of the time, she's a bouncy girl our Panda Li, Jumping Bean) after eating it and drinking, she'll puke it up. LOVELY. Lots of fun. Very attractive.
Some people recommend putting pineapple in the dog's food. Apparently some dogs have their wires crossed because they don't like the taste of pineapple in the poop, or the pinapple makes it unpalatable, which is hilarious to me. What type of food are you feeding your dog?
