Apparently, if the dogs have calcium deficiency, they tend to eat their own poop. This was told to me by a vet who used to see my GSD.

Dogs also tend to be attracted to and indeed sometimes even eat poop because it is strong smelling. They cannot differentiate as per human standards between "nice smell" and "nasty smell" - they are always attracted to strong smelling things.

Even my 3 monsters who are 8, 7 and 4 respectively still go straight as an an arrow towards some perfectly horrible-smelling things when being taken out for "walkies" and it is only a sharp word of command or sometimes even dragging them off by the collar that distracts them from it.

Eating his/her own poop in puppyhood happens quite often. There is a possibility of some mineral deficiency as well.

Ideally try and ensure he/she poops out of easy reach, by taking him/her out as soon as you observe him/her squatting and assuming the "position".

Also try giving the pup/dog 2 tablespoons of VITAPET - which is a vitamin booster syrup. the dog will eat it up because it is nice and sweet.
You should also add 2 tablespoons of OSTOVET (Calcium Syrup) to the dog's milk. Additionally, 1 seven-seas capsule will help to balance things out and ensure the dog's coat is perfect. These supplements should help to balance any deficiency that may exist.

They differentiate very well, according to doggy standards!

Although i suspect their criterion might be interesting or not rather than nice or nasty.

One more method if the pup keeps eating the poop is to add some medicine which will make the pup vomit in the poop and let the pooch eat it. He will vomit after eating the poop and if repeated will avoid eating poop altogether.
WARNING:
This is a HARD method to do this. Use this only if the pup does not stop eating the poop and is not reccomended otherwise to do this

yes you are right- interesting or not is the correct comparison - nice or nasty is as per human standards.

Even my Lab occasionally tries poop, but he is very choosy and normally samples the hard dry type rather than soft one. There is another trait which I noticed. Though he rarely vomits, he eats it up after some times. In fact he will guard it ferociously and will not let any one clean up.

Bruno looks cute. Why the chain treatment in a closed home?

Default Help !!

Hey guys

I have a pet named TIGER, a short haired GSD. He is abt 1.5yrs old now and pretty much well mannered. I need to lodge him in kennel for 3 days starting on feb15. There is a religious function in our home in hyd (Defence Colony, sainikpuri) and since lot of relatives are expected, we cant have him around, in our house.

I would like to know of any kennel/lodging for dogs near sanikpuri, as rao nagar/secunderabad for 3 days. It will be much appreciated if any pet lover from hyd can volunteer to have him in his/her house for these 3 days or plz suggest me any good kennels here. I have moved to hyd recently, from blr & dont have much idea about pet related outlets here.

Tiger is duly vaccinated & recently dewormed! No special food reqs.. actually he likes curd rice which is easiest to prepare

Cute.

Please see that he drinks clear, filtered water and not directly from a well or pipe. And his water bowl is clean and kept in a hygienic location. Please change the water every 12 hours if possible.

My cousin's teacher has a cockers spaniel which met with an accident yesterday with a car. It has one of it's legs fractured and also has some spinal injury. Could someone recommend me a good vet/neurosurgeon in Mumbai who could diagnose and treat the dog?
