Why is my dog eating poop?
Original Question: What is causing my dog to eat poop? - Anonymous
Eating poop is a strange habit in dogs with several possible causes. Some dogs ingest feces to replace digestive enzymes or nutrients missing in their diets. Others find cat poop attractive because of its aroma and flavor, which come from the food cats eat. Other possible causes include boredom, stress, internal parasites, GI issues, diabetes, Cushing’s disease, or cognitive decline. Consulting with your vet and a dog behavior specialist can help you address and stop this behavior.
