    Whenever my cats had kittens, they'd always eat their baby's poop if they made a mess on the floor. In this situation, it's instinct. In the wild, many females in the animal species ingest their babies' poo so that a predator doesn't smell it and come a sniffin'. I can't imagine why they'd do it under any other circumstances. They like the taste? My ex's pug loves to eat dust. The vet said it was probably because they could taste salt in the dust? YMMV.

    Both of my dogs love the poop. We always joke that they clean up after themselves. My vet suggested lemon juice on their food- they like the taste on the food but not when it's in the poop. Didn't work. Now I just scream, "Leave it!!!" like a maniac. Usually doesn't work.

    LMAO!!!! It is a great idea though!

    I will catch my dog occasionally eating it out of our cat litter box, too. Makes me so mad! Gross!!

    My pup will sniff it like made, but hasn't snacked on it yet. Of course, having said that, she'll probably be eating it by sundown.

    If so, the Tabasco idea sounds great!

    This link has been like therapy to me. My 13 year old dalmation mix eats cat turds daily. I try to watch her when she goes out, but often catch her too late. She is so dainty, sweet and smart. I just can't get over that she eats poop. I feel much better now

    I was told by Humane Society workers that dogs instinctively like cat poop because it's rich in iron.

    From what I read, the cat poop itself isn't too bad, it's the litter that's attached to the poop that's bad for the dog.

    My fave is when she's done eating it and wants to come over to kiss me, it smells so gross. She also licks the kittens bottoms, but that might be more mommy instinct than anything.

    From what I know it's likeley to get worms from it. Most dogs are dewormed, so are most domestic cats. But not all cats are. So if your dog eats the infected cat poop, they become infected by ingesting those worm eggs.
    Where I live it's also likeley to have your dog infected with the fox tapeworm. Apparently the deworming won't help against it.

    When my beagle was a puppy he would steal my underwear, hide under the bed, and chew out the crotch part. I went through many pairs during those 6/7 months. Although once we got him fixed the fascination died!

    I also have a friend whose two puppies would eat the eachother's poop. No joke, while one was squatting the other would come up and try to lick that shit straight from the source like soft-serve ice cream...

    I spent the night at a now ex-boyfriend's house, and his black lab ate the entire crotch out of my Vic's Secret undies during the night. When I expressed my indignation, of course the dog was defended. One of the reasons he's an ex.

    ewww! that is one of the many reasons i will likely never own a dog. i feel guilty for being so cold-hearted, but they just really gross me out. i don't even really like to pet dogs or have puppies lick me. *runs away from all of the awesome animal people here...sorry!*
