Dogs eating............

12 posts in this topic

Dung? I have 2 black labs, and they both eat Dung. We did switch to a better nutrient food with rice and beef as the top ingredient. Used to feed them Purina dog chow. Why do they eat their dung? What to do to stop this? Cant be normal.HELP. Thanks

I've heard of it before - it's not common, it's disgusting, but some dogs just eat it. I suggest an online search or check out the Just Labradors HSOforum - it's full of info. That particular topic is covered there.

I think you have to try some yourself to get a good grasp on what it is were dealing with here. Is it tasty, can't resist, or addicting. then you will be able to make an educated decision.

Just kidding, I don't know, my pup was doing that junk a couple months ago too and I just gave her a few love taps and scolded her and took it away and gave it to my buddy to eat, and she quit doing it. My guess is the dog will quit it after a few stern disaplin sessions. Mine did I think, she was the first one for me. dogs just do grose things from time to time for no good reason.

Most of the time it occurs right after they get done eating. I wonder if it still smells like food? Maybe try switching back to Dog chow, they never did that when we fed them that food before.

OK, to be more serious, this behavior is one sure way of contracting worms, so you should try somthing.The dog I had that did this was eating rabbit terds and got hookworm. we got it cured but still a bad deal.I would keep up on worming and may even think of a stool sample for the vet.Pluss try to find a way to stop it.

Bill Engvall does a funny bit about this topic. He said he went to the vet and he gave him somethng to make the turds taste bad. Goes on and on about what could make a turd taste worse. Bet there's no "kissie kissie for da puppy wuppy"

When my grandpa had his hog farm I would haul manure for him And when I would come up to the yard to fill the dogs would always lick the back of the honey wagon or what ever dtipped on to the ground. Now that was gross.

Look at the bright side you won't have to clean up the yard as much.

I herd from a guy to try meat tenderiser sprinkled on the food and after a few days it changes the odor and they get a habbit of leaving it alone, Go figure, I have no Idea if it realy works, but a gal that works with my wife has the same issue and she was going to try it.

I have a 3 year old yellow male lab that likes to eat the bird seed out of the bird feeders. Drives me nuts looking at all the seed in his [PoorWordUsage] in the kennel. I put his collar on and zap him when he is near by but don't catch him all the time. Hope the bird seed doesn't hurt him. kooba.

    • Good luck Anyfish2. Saw quite a few out in the rain driving home today    
    • Well, i will try my hand at picking up another bird for the team starting tomorrow.  Weather looks to be challenging at best over the next 7 days.  I will give my best effort when i can get out.   Birds are still hanging around the area well,  hopefully i can get a tom to break from the Hens.  
    • and this?   
    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
