PostSubject: Eating Poo!!!   Sat 31 Mar 2012, 11:26 am

Just recently Megan has taken to grabbing all dog or cat poo she can find and eating it, and this behaviour seems to be getting worse. It is absolutely disgusting, it is not just small bits its massive (its making me gag just thinking about it!!) Just wondered if anyone had any ideas as to why she is doing this and what on earth I can do to stop it. I am obviously very aware when I am out on walks but she somehow seems to find it!!!! I'm so worried that it will make her ill, as obviously there could be worms and all sorts in the poop.

Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

Mmm this is a tough one and there are various theories as to why dogs do it. Some say lack or vitamins others just because they like it.

Have you changed her food at all recently?

You can buy tablets to stop it but to be honest they never worked when Reuben was eating Chloes

Elsdon still grabs the occasional mouthful but since they have been on raw they have stopped or my "leave!" and then offering a treat has been effective, not sure which spinner smile

The very thought is disgusting isn't it
