I have 4 chi's. My one has eaten poop since a pup
Has anyone else experienced something similar and how did you stop this habit?
My dogs are inside during the day while I am at work. They have a designated area where they relieve themselves. It is therefore impossible for me to remove the feaces if I am not there. My dogs eat Acana and are all in good health. They have all had their vet check ups and given the all clear health wise so i know its not an underlying health issue.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! it will also be a relief to hear he is not the only chi with this habit hahahah.
he's not the only one that eats poop. My Tootsie used to do this and I think she taught Ellie to do it
i'm home a lot so I just try to pick it up right away.
I think what helps for me is that the kind of dog food they eat is either Primal or Stella and Chewys freeze dried raw dog food. feeding this kind , there poops are smaller and I think they go less. Mine go once or sometime 2 times a day but usually only 1 time a day and around the same time, so... I know when I have to be around to pick it up right away.
I have read that you can feed them certain things that will make the poop not taste good so they wont eat it... I don't know if this works. I think I may have tried it along time ago when Tootsie was younger and it didn't work for me.
