    Re: Eating Poop

    I remember watching a Cesar episode where a dog ate its poop, something was missing from the diet and he trained the dog by giving him banana everyday. It's not always the same vitamin or mineral missing from their diet, but a whole food can help to replace the bad habit. I like the idea that you are already giving them banana

    Re: Eating Poop

    I can identify with your being grossed out. My EB Ruggles eats Buster's poop. I wash out Ruggles mouth with the hose after he's had a tootsie roll snack. We've tried everything including switching Buster to the same food Ruggles gets (Ruggles doesn't eat his own poop or any other dog poop) to no avail. The success we've had is getting the poop cleaned up before Ruggles gets to it which means I go out with Buster for his morning poop and we split the dogs up for his afternoon poop. It is a royal pain in the butt!

    Re: Eating Poop

    Both my dogs are fed the same food and same amount daily, but only the youngest one eats his poop! It is driving me crazy and he is such a cuddly and kisses boy it grosses me out also, any other solutions for this since only one of my dogs is eating it.
    Thank you

    We have a poop eater, and have tried everything. The best defense is pick it up as soon as they go.

    Re: Eating Poop

    We had this issue for the first 6 months. Had to be quick about picking it up. He must have grown out of it cuz he just stopped all of a sudden.

    I've heard others just say to pour hotsauce on it, but if you have time to do that, why not just pick it up. LOL

    Sorry, wish I could be more helpful. I do know its more common in puppies and they should grow out of it.

    Re: Eating Poop

    Never a very fun problem to have. I don't have it with my frenchies, but had it with my bull terriers. Tried everything. The best solution is to pick it up immeidatley, which I know can be difficult at times. I used to brush their teeth if I knew they had eaten it. I like Drs. Foster and Smiths dental cleanser and sponges.

    Fromm is great! You can order just about any food from Petflow, and it is free shipping over $49, plus check out their specials and clearance when you check out cuz they always have great deals!
    Have you checked out Chewy.com? Super fast shipping and great prices (better than Petflow on some things) Shipping is also free with $49 purchase and if you sign up for autoship they give an additional 20% discount. (one time)

    Re: Eating Poop

    I'm in the same situation as you are! I adopted two litter mates, and yes, they ate each other's poops.

    I tried giving them banana and other things that were recommended in order to curb the appeal. None of them worked. LOL They just grew out of it. Don't sweat it. (Mine are 7 months old now)

    Now they eat rabbit poop that they find on our walks! Blech...

    Re: Eating Poop

    Have two frenchies who are 6 months apart in age. Tallulah who is now almost 16 months old ate her poop as a puppy. Tried everything, but picking it up right away was the best defense. She outgrew the habiit - i don't remember how old she was, just glad it stopped. We rescued Munson from FBRN, he came to us at 7 months old with a warning from his foster mom that he was a poop eater. We've had him 2 months now & he still does it, but not as often. Again, best defense is picking it up.
