    Now they eat rabbit poop that they find on our walks! Blech...
    Be careful with rabbit poop. They can get giardia and coccidia from rabbits and BELIEVE ME you don't want those parasites!

    Our last dog ate rabbit poop and her vet said it was nutrition deficiency. Maybe they are lacking one small part of something? I know you feed your dogs well, and I used to feed my poor dog Iams (clearly not my babies now but this was before I became a dog food researching lunatic lol). Or they might just be weirdos.

    But seriously be careful about the rabbit poop !!
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend never owned a French Bulldog.

    I definitely don't let them chow down on it. lol They might get one in their mouths before I realize what's happening, and then I quickly pull them away.

    My pugs do (did) this too, and they were on different foods than what my Frenchies are on now. To be honest, I think dogs just think rabbit poop is tasty! My pug will slurp up choke cherries too...and crab apples. Neither of those are appealing either, as they are *sour* as can be.

    I don't know what goes through their heads.

    Rosie did this for a bit and it drove me nuts. Told the vet one day about it while we were there and he gave her a shot for it and she has not eaten it again since then. Don't remember the name of shot he gave her though.

    Re: Eating Poop

    Hi this is a dilemma, fortenatly i never got the problem. But we trained a couple of dogs with this problem...What we did was almost always the same..

    1. When is the dog eating their poop?
    2. How can we redirect this behaivor?
    3. Is its already a habbit which we need to break?

    Once we know this answears than we start working with the dog and especially with the OWNER...

    I totally understand that you don't feel comfortable with it, but try to answear those questions...
