Does anyone know of anything that I could add to his food to stop this?
I have tried picking it up, but sometimes he gets to it before I am able to.
As always, thanks.
|If he gets to it before you can pick it up, you can try a leash? I have had and have that problem. Meat tenderizer worked for me. There's also a product called Deter that you can find in pet stores which is a tablet you give them for two weeks. Actually there are several things at the pet store for poop eaters. Everyone has had success stories and not so successful stories with each product I've heard of.|
|Most pet supply places sell corophagia tablets that are said to make his poop less appealing I think...
Tucker eats poo too... yuck.
|I have used "Accent" which is monosodium glutimate (MSG) about 1/8 tsp sprinkled on the dog's food. That together with cleaning up as soon as possible and an "Ah,Ah" when the dog starts to sniff at it and pretty well solved the problem for Barney.|
|Canned pumpkin should also work.|
|My SIL swears by Deter. She is a breeder of Mini Schnauzers and I guess they are big on poop eating. YUCK!
She's had great success with it.
|Accent or any brand of meat tenderizer. Did the trick for us!|
|why do they do this I just caught Dudley Wed for the first time . He is 11 1/2 months old and didn't think this would happen. yuck!!!!!!|
|Guinness likes poopsicles My vet laughs and I brush his teeth a lot!!!! I try and pick up as all the dogs go... but sometimes he gets some!!!! Yuck Yuck Yuck!!!!!!and bleh pooey!!!|
|Just keep picking it up, asap. Haven't had to deal with too much, but the one dog we had liked it frozen, we used Deter tablets as well.
He can get sick if he eats another dog's poo.
|Accent sprinkled onto their food worked for us. London was a poop eater in the beginning too. Thank goodness the Accent worked quickly and she moved on from eating poop to shoes.|

What is Accent and how much of it did you use?
|Ok I just looked it up, very interesting...
Meat tenderizers are proteolytic enzymes, which essentially digest protien.
Sounds like it could be beneficial for many things, but what I don't understand is why it makes a dog stop eating poo.
If it allows the dog to digest/absorb more protien out of it's food, does that mean they are eating poo in the first place for protien?
Most studies have discounted this theory a long time ago.
I wonder why/how it works?
|Maybe something happens in the digestive process to make the poo smell weird to them after it comes out? Like it combines and turns the Accent into something else. You know, like the Incredible Hulk. By itself, he's just David "Accent" banner but when he gets mad, he's the Incredible "Inedible" (poo) Hulk.
Doesn't Accent have a lot of sodium in it or am I thinking of some other spice/ food additive? I would think salting food wouldn't be too good if it had to be done over time.

ROTFLMAO at your analogy. I love it!!
|One of the breeders around here suggested giving small pieces of Fig Newtons. Apparently, they taste good going in, but not good once they are digested We bought some so I'll let you know how it goes after a week or two.|
