My male dogs eats poop. Why?
Posted on 08.16.11 | Ask Dr. Tim
My male dogs eats poop. Why? I can’t get him to stop-it’s disgusting-he also eats a lot of grass-I am positive he is lacking something in his diet. He has Hypo-throidism and is on 7mg of Soloxine 2 times a day.
They eat poop because it tastes good, so let’s make it taste bad. One trick is to sprinkle Adolph’s meat tenderizer on the food prior to feeding. This tastes good going down, makes the poop taste bad (to a dog) afterwards. Use liberally like Parmesan cheese on their food. Kids; don’t try this at home.
