Why Do Dogs Eat Poop?

Wednesday, June 22, 2016

dogpoopThe thought of it disgusts us. Our best friends put their mouths everywhere and they smother us with kisses and we let them. We share our homes with them and love them like family but some things they do makes us cringe! They eat poop and it even has a name. It’s called Coprophagia. Eating poop is a natural behavior for dogs. Remember that they’re carnivores.It was the role of the mother to protect her litter of pups, and that included ridding their scent from the area – you guessed it – by eating her puppies’ poop. There are other reasons. May he’s just plain hungry. Some dogs just love the smell and taste. I’m sure that if you also have a cat, you’ve seen your dog munching in the cat litter box. You feed him quality dog food, give him lots of dog treats and yet he chooses poop!

If poop-eating is excessive, talk to your veterinarian to rule out any health issues.

Watch Out For Those Fleas and Ticks

FLEASANDTICKSNows the time to protect your pet against fleas and ticks. Fleas are difficult to get rid of if they get in your house. Todays flea collars use sustained release technology which means that the active ingredients are slowly and continuously released over  months. They kill fleas and continue to prevent re-infestations for months. Todays flea collars are very light and won’t be uncomfortable for your pet to wear.

Another very affective method for getting rid of ticks and fleas is to have your vet treat your pet for fleas by using a product that lasts a very long period of time. I will say this, a while back, I had Molly treated for fleas and ticks and the vet used a product that was placed in the back of her neck. Later on I noticed a small bald spot on the place where the product was applied. I never questioned this but suspect that it could have been caused my Molly’s reaction to the flea and tick product.

Protect your pets this summer. There are a large variety of flea and tick products to choose from.
