    I really wish I could. I found one of my chihuahuas and he had been abused, was injured, and starving...he eats his poo, the vet told us in his case it was probably a way to survive when he was starving, but he still does it and it is disgusting!!! Wish i could help and hope you get an answer.

    There is pills you can buy at the pet store that makes his poop taste nasty (like it dont already!!) or you can feed him pineapples. This makes his poop unpleasent to him. My mom did this for me and I stopped.

    I have had to deal with the same thing. I switched her food and she stopped. Not ever again has she done it! Good Luck!!!

    Sorry you're dealing with this issue, we did for a long time and still do on occasion. Nothing worked for us that the previous people suggested. We tried the different powders and pills to make their pooh extra disgusting and we tried the pineapple, all which failed miserably. The only thing that works 100% is to watch your dog when it's outside 100% of the time and clean up after him EVERY time he goes. One of our dogs has outgrown the urge and the other only does it on occasion and only when we're not looking.

    Add a chunk of pineapple after each meal. Victoria Stillwell says it really works.
