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

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
