Depends on the age of your dog. Some puppies eat their own 'poopy' because they're playing. Dogs also eat their 'poopy' to hide it from their own and because they don't want telling off

F your dog is continually eating dirt, you shouldn't discount this behavior, as it could be a sign of a bigger issue, such as:

  • Anemia (low red blood cell count)
  • Nutritional imbalances or deficiencies, especially in minerals
  • Low-quality food
  • Upset stomach
  • Gastrointestinal disturbance
If you're worried that your dog's dirt eating is due to a nutritional imbalance, you should consult your veterinarian about your canine companion's diet and whether changes need to be made. On the behavior side, make sure your dog is getting enough physical and mental exercise to curb dirt eating that stems from boredom. If all else fails, "denying access to favorite dirt-eating areas may be required, Remember, dirt eating may be a sign of something bigger, so you should never ignore it.

SOURCE: My dog eats everything but is there something's that he shouldn't eat?

I don't have a solution. I am looking for an answer. We had a dog that ate an 8 inch x 2 inch piece of tarp and it killed him. Now I have a 8 month old puppy that eats her dog bed, blankets, comforters, wood, fly swatters, you name it. She just had an operation to take part of a rug out of her intestines. Luckily I caught it before too late. I have looked for biodegradable rugs but can't find anything. Other than locking her up and watching her all the time, I have not found a solution. I am sure she will die from something she eats.

Right way to feed a senior dog


Dogs are considered seniors in the last third of their life. During this time, it is important feed them a well-balanced diet that will help them maintain good health and an ideal bodyweight. Just like humans, as dogs age, they are prone to more and more health risks like arthritis and obesity. What should senior dogs eat? One of the most important ingredients for senior dogs is protein. They must eat a good portion of protein because older dogs tend to lose muscle mass.As far as fat goes, senior dogs need to eat less fat. Another thing senior dogs should eat is fruits and vegetables because they help fight constipation. When it comes to calories, senior dogs must eat less in order to maintain their bodyweight. Finally, consider supplementing your senior dog with vitamins/minerals as they can be beneficial to your dog.

What is eating my dog?


What kind of Dog do you have? Does it live indoors or outdoors or both? Does it sleep in the bed with you? Eating your dog? Meaning bugs, or parasites, and even molds, could be eating the dog. Treatment depends on the thickness of the hair and the dogs weight. I give my dog a pill called Program Advantage, for his weight. It doesn't repel fleas, they fay dead eggs to make more fleas to break the life3 cycle as they only live a day to two if thier normal. Eggs hatch when conditions are right. if the eggs can't hatch your problem is solved for the fleas that found you dog. Treat your yard and bedding and all other places the dog hangs out in and you will beat the fleas and most other pests that can and may be eating on your dog. washing the dog for a few weeks in a row will get things under control. I try to wash him once a week.

My dog will eat our food but will not eat his , he is being given wainrights he just wants our food


A dog can go without food for a few days and then will eat when it is hungry. Just stop giving your dog your food and at its normal feeding time give it a bowl of its food. If it does not eat it, take the food away. Then 24 hours later put the bowl of food out for the dog. If it has not eaten it within ten minutes take it away and then 24 hours later put the bowl of food out for the dog again. By now the dog should be happy to eat what it is given.

Problems with dogs eating cat food


The following is advice from the ASPCA
Cat food is higher in protein and fat, which may make it very palatable to dogs, but if you continue to feed your dog only cat food, over time you'll begin to see nutritional imbalances. It's also possible to see gastrointestinal issues, such as vomiting and diarrhea, in dogs who continually eat cat food.

My dog eats its food way too fast. Is there a specific kind of bowl that can make it eat more slowly?


There are the slow-down eating bowls that slow down the dog's eating. The bowl's design doesn't allow the dogs to eat their food quickly. It includes both narrow areas and obstacles. Look at this link to see how these types of bowls look like: http://0.tqn.com/d/petsupplies/1/0/1/3/-/-/b1.jpg

You should never let your dog eat chicken bones as these have small sharp fragments that could choke your dog. Also Grapes, onions, chocolate, raisins, salt and tomatoes are toxic to dogs so you should never let them eat any of those foods.
