Good luck, but also tell us what works for you!!

Thanks!! I think I'm going to try some home remidies before something from the vet! Too expensive.

Thanks for stopping in to say hello!

Welcome to the forum. Where in central Illinois are you located? I went to college for 2 years in Jacksonville, then 2 more years of undergrad and a couple of years of grad school in Urbana-Champaign. I still have family in Elgin and Vernon Hills, in the northern part of the state.

I'm close to Peoria. I have been to both Jacksonville and Champaign many a time!! I'm familiar w/Elgin and Vernon Hills as well. I have to travel to Champaign & Northwards to Aurora occasionally. Nice to meet you!

Hello and Welcome,
I had one that used to eat my puppy's poo and then one day I noticed it still had undigested food in it. So Beau thought he was getting extra food. I was told that they eat the poo because they are not getting enough nutrients. Since I switched to a different brand he doesnt eat the poop anymore.

Hello, Juli. I am bouncing your nice welcome back to you.

I have had the same problem with Flem (starting after her spay at 6 months) and, unfortunately, have not been able to solve it yet. Both Spip and Flem eat the same food and only Flem eats poo !

I have tried the following things : pineapple, Forbid, Deter, Missing Link (in case she was missing some nutrient), Barley Grass. To no avail. One thing I have to tried yet is probiotics but since we are in the process of switching food, I will cross my fingers and hope that the new food does the trick.

Am I an optimist or what ?! I hope you will have better luck than I.
