PostSubject: need advice on a disgusting problem   Sun 17 Jan 2010, 4:02 pm

The last few mornings we have getting up to let Tyne out of his cage and he has had a bowel movement and has eaten it and then has made himself ill over doing so. I always make sure he has regular toilet breaks throughout the day and night. however he has just started to do this does anybody have any suggestions as to why? Its as if he is trying to hide the evidence and cowers when i open the cage as if he is going to be smacked for it. I dont smack him at all or any of the other dogs we have but it is really starting to get me down as it's not good for Tyne or the smell of our house as i clean it up but the smell is still there and i am washing his bedding every day aswell.

Vet check to make sure there isn't a health problem, if there is't you may have to get up in the night to let him out. I have to with Merlin because he can't go through the night.

Dogs don't like dirty beds which could be why he is eating it.

If you put pineapple into his food dried kind he will stop eating it, but 1st off a vet visit for sure dogs dont normally soil their beds for no reason especially as he has toilet breaks often.

ive had our Tyne to the vet they've checked him over and took bloods they say he seems healthy enough and this morning his bed was clean!! the vet did say that sometimes dogs go through a phase where they'l do things they know is wrong at a young age and with tyne being 18mnth hes still young and may just be trying to get attention hes gotta go back in a week or when they ring to say they've got the results back they asked if hes been wormed which he is due so hes been wormed aswell so hopefully hes fine and is just trying to push his luck as to say i tell you the amount of problems we have had with him over the past 8 month we have had him i should be grey haired ha ha ha but he is worth it

I am pleased that he is fit and healthy, what time do you feed him? This can also make a difference.

Many dogs love the taste of pineapple so it encourages them to eat their poo not stop them. ROFL

mattie i usually feed them at 3/4pm but yesterday i fed them at 2pm and after that they get nothing else to eat as i found with my staffy cross at tynes age had accidents sometimes so i fed them earlier and i put tyne 2 bed a lil later than normal aswel so maybe that helped a little
