    Angry Need some help guys!

    Two things. 1. Daisy has these things that looks like skin tags on her back paws. She has quite a few of them. I saw a bump and freaked out I thought she had a tick. Then after I got to looking it was white and then some were whitish with maybe some red like blood in them. They are really small but I am just not sure what they are and if I need to take her to the vet. And 2. Shes still eating her poop. Like seriously I just caught the nasty thing taking a sh*t and turn around to eat it right up. I caught her too late. ITs so gross! Any tips?????

    Hi, I can't help you with the skin tags, I'm not sure what they could be. Maybe take some pictures and post them, and somebody might recognize what they are.

    my Dozer started to eat his poop when I switched him to Go Natural dogfood, my vet read the ingredients, and said the food was too rich for him, it had too many fruits and vegetables in it, and so it was digested too quickly, and then tasted good to him, so he ate it. Yuck.. When I switched him to Fromms Beef Frittata, he stopped snacking on his deposits.

    I'm curious about these skin tag looking things on her paw. Any way to get a pic? I know it won't be easy but maybe we can all learn something new!

    Isn't the school of thought on poop eating is they are lacking something in the diet? When I got duke at 12 weeks he would eat poop- he was on royal canin - I switched him to raw at 13 weeks and he stopped eating his poop immediately .

    A vet ( not mine ) once told me eating poop is a sign of a vitamin b deficiency. Luckily we haven't had this problem with Bo. Keep me posted if u find an answer. I'm curious.

    You have gotten some great advice above. You may also want to try walking Daisy on a leash so that when she goes poop and starts to eat it you can gently redirect her and move her away from the pile. In some cases there are underlying medical problems such as parasites that can cause dogs to eat their own poop. I would try the pumpkin first.
