Red face Hello from Illinois!

Our baby, Hobie, is 5 months old! We love him dearly and I think he's quite possibly the smartest puppy EVER! BUT, I came here looking for reasons why he's just started eating his poo! I've found some ideas and will be trying them! No more taking a "stick" out of his mouth which isn't a stick but frozen poo!!!

Anyway, I'm going to check out the threads!!

Juli

Hello and Welcome!

My Tucker is nicknamed, Potty Mouth. He follows Shadow everywhere and seems to beat me to it somtimes. I've never found anything that will make him stop this little behavior other than picking it up asap, and faster if possible...

Yeah, it's pretty bad when they burp sometimes.... What's a mother to do?

I've heard of some success with pinapple juice, but it didn't work for us. I also don't want to give him an additive suggested for this sort of thing. I can use the exercise!

LOL on the burp!!! At least you didn't get the frozen poo handed to you!!

I would think they'd like pinapple juice..heck if they eat poo, they'll try anything!!

You could try a little vinegar on the poo logs. That might deter them from wanting to eat it.

Then after a few times of vinegar poo he'll stop even trying.

Thanks! That sounds better than the hot sauce. I read adding spinach to his food too! At least I have some options!

Had the same problem with one of mine and the vet gave me the additive (not cheap) and suggested green beans added to her food would make her stop. I ended up going on "poop patrol", picking up droppings immediately after they occurred. But with 2 dogs going in different directions sometimes I wasn't fast enough. Good luck, but also tell us what works for you!!
