PostSubject: Dogs Eating Poop & Cat Food   Sun 30 Sep 2012, 6:57 pm

omg Sorry to talk poop but here's the thing....

Rocco always ate his poop - which gross'd me

We tried everything possible to stop him eating but to no avail.

Then a lady we spoke to mentioned cat food - I wsn't convinced - but I bought Whiskas Fish Tinned Cat Food and OMG it worked.

I added 2 fork fulls to Rocco Breakfast - every other day for one week - and he has now completely stopped taking any interest or trying / eating it.

I know cat food isn't meant to be fed to dogs - but this small portion seems to have cured it - so I am thinking it is a mineral or vitamin deficiency.

Mmmm not sure, isn't cat food higher in protein? I have never really looked at the ingredients in my cats food and compared it against the dogs

Good result though - well done

I heard that adding pineapple to dog food works as well. Well done on solving it though!

ta we tried pineapple - banana - powder which you sprinkle into the food - the list goes on - and it's been over 12 months of trying - it was a comment a lady had said before and I hadn't quite listened the first time around - so I thought about giving it a try - and its working - even off lead on fields he poops and runs off woot

I am gonna see if by taking it out of his dinner after Christmas that he may leave it alone completely :)

Hi Linda

I am not sure about your question hun? What do you mean lol xx

I don't think it would harm Rocco - its an experiment as such which at the moment has stopped him eating poop - I only add a 2 tablespoon to his meal - but I don't want to feed him cat food forever - does that make sense?

I wonder why its working? as your boy is fed a raw diet, so therefore has a high protien diet and I was always told that cat food just has more protein than dog food, very interesting me thinks, but so glad it is working xxxxxxx

I had the same problem with Elsdon and Ruby and started giving them All Bran and it seemed to have the same effect, in fact I'm sure you gave me the idea Suzie.

However if they start again I know exactly what to do, thanks for the tip.

Know any on how to stop them eating grass? It drives me crazy especially when I have to assist it coming out of the other end lol

It could do Lou, if you think about it cat poo is the left overs from cat food so perhaps giving him a bit of cat food would reduce the urge to et the cat poop?

Still does work for me 99% of the time with dog poo Suzie, the 1% is the cat poo! So I'm off to buy some cat food to try it.

Hi Jo - yes it worked a treat but ths may set Reubs allergies off so please check the ingredients - lately I switched to Butcher Gluten Free Tripe Tinned and so far so good (simply as I didn;t like feeding him cat food)

Can recommend Bozita cat food from zooplus - very little grain and 80% meat! Might be better than some other food?!
