Puppy eats her poop

Hi everyone. I recently added a 9 week old boston mix to our family. She is the third child. On the 3rd or fourth day she was with us she started eating her poop. I try to watch her every second and clean it up immediately or else she does, yuck. Any ideas? I have never had this problem before and have no idea how to handle it.

Dogs do that...it is not abonormal and it shouldn't hurt her...but I know it is digusting!! You should ask your vet about something called "Forbid". You add it to your dog's food and it will make her stool taste gross and then, hopefully she won't eat it anymore.

It shouldn't take too long. Once she digests her food and it comes out the other end...well then it shouldn't taste good anymore.

Two of my dogs are already 3 years old, and still poop eaters! Nothing I do seems to stop them from eating their poop, and I find it absolutely disgusting... But, I've never heard of Forbid... I should tell my mom to buy some on her way home from work today!

No, it is not expensive (I think)..and a little goes a relatively long way. Ask your vet about it. It may also be something that you could order online for cheaper.

Forbid is inexpensive. My Vet was charging me $3.00 a pouch and my puppy was only 3 pounds at the time so 1 pouch lasted 2 days. I found it cheaper on the web though, if you buy 6 pouches they were charging only $1.99 a pouch.
The website was: www.arcatapet.com
I imagine it would be avaiable elsewhere as well.I am happy to announce that Cosmo seems to have outgrown the poop eating.  Grin
Good Luck!

my dog dog Does this to but it is never his poop, when i am walking him he always finds and eats the cats pooh that lives next door.
also i have read that dogs eat pooh to get more nourishment in there diert.  i would ask the vet if there is something you can give her to get the nourishment else where.
