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.
