i have a now 7 mo. old female german shepherd. she spends a lot of time outside in our large yard. she has a horrible habit of eating her stool immediately after producing it. we have tried the pills added to her food which helps to stop the behavior, but it resumes once the pills are discontinued. she eats science diet lamb and rice dry food, which both the breeder and vet say should be providing her with proper nutrition. any advice? will she outgrow this habit?
She will probably outgrow this. Try cleaning the yard after she goes to the bathroom and walking her on a leash. You can also try Forbid or Deter. Good luck, vetcare
