Default Gross, sick, Gross!

Clara Bow just ate her own poop Why? What should I do about it? She is VERY food driven and cleans my floors like she hasn't eaten in days. She is very fat for only 12 wks old but doesn't have worms. The vet said I would just have to watch her intake and make sure she gets exercise or she will be overweight. Could there be other issues going on? This just grosses me out and I don't want her kissing the little kids after eating her poo.

Try feeding her some pineapple and pick up that poop before she can get it. Work on the leave- it command. There are some here who have dealt with this first hand.

Its very common. Putting some pineapple juice / crushed pineapple in her food normally helps. They don't like the taste after it comes out. Also pick it up right away.
Sometimes dogs do it when they are missing certain nutrients, so look into what you feed her. Many pups just do it though.

Chico just started this bad habit ... about a week after starting him on a liver flavored joint health pill. I don't know if this is the cause but I try to clean up right after he eliminates. I tried the pineapple but seemed to make Chico not feel well

She eats a mixture of Royal Canin (small breed puppy) and Wellness puppy. There are things at the pet store you can put in their food to make the poo taste awful, are those safe? It isn't always possible for me to follow her around and pick it up but I will when I can.

I just wanted to throw in here that I have always heard that it is not a good idea to mix two different foods. Something about getting to much of certain things isnt good for them as well as a few other reasons. There was a big post about it on my Great Dane board a couple of years ago. Maybe someone else can chime in.

You think that's gross lol. Listen to this. Lola doesn't eat her own poop anymore no, she prefers Cookie's as it's actually coming out his bum all nice and fresh and warm!!!!!!!!

Honestly she eats it as he's pooing it out!!!!!!!!
