“Did you feed them carrot yesterday?”

19 Feb

Says Beth as she cleans up the remnants of an eaten poo. Good eye babe.

(I guess those don’t-eat-the-poop pills aren’t working.)

    Our vet told us a spoonful of pineapple juice in their food would do the trick. They like it in their food but they will not want to eat their poop.

    Are they carrot pills?

  3. Jules February 19, 2011 at 10:09 am #

    Have to add that those are two adorable pups!!!

    Jorge, look at it this way, it COULD be worse~~~believe me I know.

    Imagine how much worse if the poo was not their own, but the cat’s. TOLD ya’ it could be worse.😦

    Man, I really hated that~~~and now, there is a gate between him and IT.

    Just so gross!!!

    Oh, those faces? Who? Us? We never!!

    DUDE!
    Sprinkle some meat tenderizer on their food… it worked for my Jack Russell

  7. Lacey February 19, 2011 at 10:44 am #

    😀 Corprophagia pills never worked on our dogs either. But really, can u stsy mad at their tiny faces???

    Our vet said to mix canned pumpkin in their food as it takes good going down but not coming out🙂 good luck

  9. love the pups! February 19, 2011 at 11:06 am #

    I know a lot of people who have tried those “don’t-eat-the-poop pills” and they usually don’t work. but… what does seem to work is to mix some pineapple (or pineapple juice) in with their food. tastes good once, but not the second time around – you can research it online for exact measurements😉 good luck!

    I’ve heard that putting canned pumpkin in with their meal will make them less inclined to eat the poo. Tastes good going in and horrible once it’s out. Can’t hurt and it might help. I would assume for their size it wouldn’t take more than a tablespoon or two per meal.

    the inside-out ears! cute!
    My wawa is the ultimate recycler, if I’m not paying attention, he’ll eat his poo, barf it up, and then eat that. Maybe he knows how messy my house is and is just trying to clean up after himself so I don’t have an additional chore.

    least you don’t have cats so they can eat THEIR poop..nothing worse than getting a cats ass smelling lick in the face.

  13. tracy February 19, 2011 at 1:56 pm #

    Canned pumpkin binds poop together and is good for loose stool not to deter them from eating it. Only natural pet store on line has several products. I like the stuff that you sprinkle on the food since I have chihuahuas pills are too large. Also it helps not to feed wet food as when it comes out the other end it can still smell like the food slightly. Hard food is better.

    They just have the sweetest eyes!!!!

  15. Margie February 19, 2011 at 4:43 pm #

    They are just so cute!!!!

    Jorge, I admire your gift of making everything funny even when it’s not.

    (I’m a cat person but your doggies are adorable)

    Victoria Stillwell (It’s Me or the Dog) says to feed them some pineapple. It is supposed to make poo taste terrible!

  18. Elizabeth February 19, 2011 at 5:31 pm #

    Pineapple is a surefire way to get dogs to stop eating poop! Good luck!

    Crayons make for a festive back yard display….especially if the dogs chew/eat a couple of different colors…you get some nice confetti colored nuggets😉 I used to get really grossed out, but now it’s kind of funny…especially since hubby yields the pooper scooper!

    our chi-baby- monty likes to ensure that our cat poop is in proper vintage, texture and of course, taste…. so we have the litter boxes (4 cats two boxes, no waiting), sequestered in puppy-pooper eater-free zones. Yikes!

    Hi Jorge,

    When my two black labs were puppies, one of them was eating the others’ poo. I sprinkled cayenne pepper on the poo whenever I saw them pooing and didn’t pick up the poo til the next day. Pretty soon, he stopped even checking when she was done.

    The cayenne pepper also works on digging holes too. My dogs rarely dig but they do once every few months or so. When I see a fresh hole, I sprinkle the pepper in and they don’t go back and they don’t dig for a long time.

    Hope these little tips help!

    Beth, I feel your pain :{

  23. Claudia February 20, 2011 at 7:54 am #

    But they are awfully cute!!!
    What sweet little faces!!!!

  24. Tom February 20, 2011 at 8:51 am #

    How does your puppy manage to fold its ears back like that?

  25. Abby February 20, 2011 at 11:10 am #

    Try a 100-pound English retriever who just looooooves poo. We’re looking into what might work for him (and for what’s coming out of our other “little”–only 60 pounds–dog). Luckily Fido can’t get to the cat litter box.

    It’s part of the contract of having these great animals in our lives. A sense of humor really helps with the whole thing too, as I know you know.

    • Teresa Avalon February 21, 2011 at 3:43 pm #

      Sense of humor is absolutely necessary.

    If they’re eating their stool, there’s a good chance they’re lacking something in their diet. To deter them from eating it, try adding some pineapple into their food.

  27. Penny February 20, 2011 at 1:59 pm #

    Start feeding the pups pineapple chunks. Makes the poo taste bad and they quit eating it. We had a Chi who ate Kitty Roca but after the cat started eating pineapple chunks the roca was left alone.

    Jorge, the pills didn’t work for my dachshund either. The vet told us to feed bigger portions, but split into 2 times a day. Also, to switch to a certain dog food, (i guess it was more appropriate nutrition-wise for her than the other food.) We tried an old non medicinal trick and it seemed to help the most. We fed her a quarter cup of pumpkin puree, (tastes good at first, but not the second time around) The vet also suggested spinach or pineapple but those weren’t effective like the pumpkin was.

    my sister’s minpin/chihuahua has the same problem but her vet said for that breed, it’s probably more of an anxiety/shame issue rather than a taste issue.
    hope any of that info helps!

    They are just the cutest babies!! I want to smooch them, but not with poopy breath🙂 Try the pineapple, it should work.

    BTW, I’m watching the LOST finale right now for the 1000 time. I cry every time!!!!

  30. Renee February 20, 2011 at 8:04 pm #

    I hate to say it, but we tried it all and nothing worked for our pup. She outgrew it by the time she was two (and thank God, because the burps that smelled like poop were awful). Our old dog used to love the crunchy coated cat snacks that kitty would leave for him. ;o)

    Our dog Shayna used to eat everything she could find. And I mean every little thing. Well not the furniture or clothes or shoes, but everything that wasn’t attached to something.

    So she ate all the little plastic people in the game of life. We enjoyed playing that game with the kids so, yep it was little old me tracking through the woods next to our house with the garden hose, a flashlight and some rubber gloves.

    Next her stomach started feeling bad and she started vomiting up blood. So we took her to the doc. They opened up her stomach, sewed it back together, and this is what they found.

    1. A plastic dinosaur. The kind with it’s mouth open and a wing like thing going around the neck.

    2. Two plastic suction cups that stuck to the glass slider to hold up stain glass like plastic ornaments.

    3. A wad of String

    Once she ate a red balloon that had “Vote for so and so” printed on it. We got a kick out of that one.

    Nothing worked with my pups, so now I just make sure that poop is picked up almost before it hits the ground. With no poop lying around, no opportunities to eat it! Of course, I still have to be very vigilant about other dogs’ poop when we’re out on walks.

  33. Greta's Mommy February 21, 2011 at 8:05 am #

    Our vet suggested the meat tenderizer – no msg in it, and the pineapple.He also told us that it’s mostly just a bad habit and after not eating poop for a month or so, she would get over it. She didn’t though😦
    The pills didn’t work for us either. The meat tenderizer didn’t either. But the pineapple did! So we buy a few cans of generic pineapple chunks every week and give them both pineapple for treats instead of carrots.

  34. Teresa Avalon February 21, 2011 at 3:41 pm #

    Dude, ya got two choices: pick up the poo as it comes out or go sprinkle red pepper on the poo as soon as it comes out. Notice the similarity: as soon as it comes out. There are many great things about dogs (I speak as a family member of a standard poodle – so smart, I might send him to college) but poop eating is not up there. And yet, they all seem to think it’s the greatest thing!

    Another day, another pu pu platter joke…

    he escrito una carta, pero creo que me he dejado algo de tu lista, lo siento me cuesta un poco entender ingles, sino puede contestar lo entiendo, soy un poco desastre en idiomas!!! jeje

    I wrote a letter, but I think I’ve left something on your list, I feel I have some difficulties understanding English

  37. InTheDale February 22, 2011 at 11:00 am #

    My husband and I had a cat and two dogs. He said we could save money by just feeding the cats. The dogs would eat the cat’s poo.

  38. Felipe Ribeiro February 24, 2011 at 8:00 pm #

    Congratulations on the excellent work you do.
    I’m from Brazil, and I love LOST. Mainly for his character.
    Big hug.

    Our dog as a pup once ate a bunch of grapes – they came out the other end looking exactly like they went in but with a nice brown patina. Eight years on and I’m still not over it…

  40. Mighty Morfin February 26, 2011 at 5:20 pm #

    First of all….Euww!!! Second, those puppies are too cute to get upset at!! Awe!! Their faces just say, “hold me!!”

  41. JB February 28, 2011 at 5:17 am #

    I tried feeding my chi pineapple to make her stop eating her poo, but it didn’t work. I would try the pepper, but she knows she isn’t supposed to eat her poos so she only does it when I’m not looking. She is very sneaky that way. My vet says to try the powder found in pet stores, but that dogs usually eat poo again as soon as you stop using it. If you find something that works, let us know. Love to your gorgeous pups!

  42. Maeve February 28, 2011 at 4:11 pm #

    Which is why I’ve only owned cats.
