Thread: Beyond frustrated

    Default Beyond frustrated

    Bentley will be 3 months on Xmas. For the last 2 weeks I have been adding pumpkin to his food as he keeps eating his poop. This past week I have added pineapple juice and guess what yep he is still eating it. Do you think I should change his food? Maybe he isn't getting enough nutrients? I currently feed him Nurto Chicken and rice. Any thoughts?

    How long has he been doing this? There are a few things you can try.. Teaching the "leave it" command or also using a taste deterrent.

    It's pretty common for puppies to do this and usually they outgrow it by 6 months (from the research I've done)

    I feed my puppy Nutro Chicken and Rice, I would say switch immediately and went through a variety of things, skin allergies, vomiting ect. Nutro is a great brand of food but not for bulldog. Try going for the Nutro Grain free or Nature Recipe . Actually any grain free food would be way better

    Yes I would try a different food to see if it helps or changes it. Remember to switch very slowly as to not upset their tummy.

    agree with Cheryl... they can outgrow it, but Nutro is not that great of a food and he could be missing something -- find a grain free food and do a slow switch over at least 10 days

    There was an episode of the Dog Whisperer where he had an English bulldog doing this and he recommended feeding him banana. There was some type of nutrient he was missing.

    Let us know how he does on the Fromm. One of our dogs used to do this, but I think it was to hide the evidence. She only ate the poop when she had an accident in the house.
