copied from DOG PANORAMA on Facebook.

(COPROPHAGIA)Simply implies dogs habit of eating up their faeces. Let’s face it, dogs can be pretty disgusting when it comes to that and 10% of dogs does it But,there is one particular behavior that goes above and beyond the rest – the eating of faeces,especially as puppies. This behavior called coprophagy is easy to change with the right nutritional supplements and modifications to behaviorbut before then,Why Dogs Eat PooTo start with,you should know the accusative factor.It’s a good idea to take your dog to the vet if this is a common:
1. persistent behavior,such oftenlly a sign of a deficiency in their diet,there are actually quite a few deficiencies a dog might have that can lead to eating poo – a quick blood test or stool test can often identify if it is anything significant.Many times, supplementing whatever they’re missing from their diet can help with this problem.
2.GLUTTONY,this is an habit Of eating everything and anything with no ceasation,this applicable in cases of dogs that being subjected to starvation mostly,the moment they finish up availability they bounce on faces to further help their bowel.
3. INDIGESTION-this is when food intake doesn't totally pass through process that break it down and covert to energy and other nutrients,such food's aroma is expected to be figure out in faces by their sense of sniffing & lunch dog to eating d faces.This is applicable to breeders/owner that feed their dogs with home made food that contains stew/soup,party/eatery remnants and those thatfeed late in the night as there won't be activities to aid the digestion of such food.
4. NON-CONDUSIVE breeding environment-a dirty raised dog is expected to exhibit dirty behaviors like COPROPHAGIA.
GETTING YOUR DOG TO STOP;Now that you’ve identified if there is a physical problem, you can work toward fixing it.If your dog has a deficiency, that should be your first target. However,if it is simply a behavior they have learned somehow, you can use behavior modification to remove the desire to eat poo and reduce the Opportunity – Start by cutting out how many opportunities a dog actually has to eat the poop.You do this by collecting any poop and getting rid of it immediately,Especially if you let your dog out into the yard to poo,clean it up daily. When you walk your dog, make sure you personally take him to wherever he normally defecate and keep him away fromany other poo that may be on the walk.
1. Keep extremely clean and conducive kennel/environment,fumigate and. Bath ur dogs as @ when due.
2. Work on ur dogs nutritional table by giving good affordable food e.g Binggo and others.
3. Feed ur dog rightly and timely.
4. Increase the calcium content of ur dogs food to solidified d facesas dog only perform such act on watery faces. Other correctional methods are;
1-using based paforated cages.
2-adoptionof electrical collar.
3-Medication,such as potty mouth and other local methods. The important thing here is to remember that immediate action is needed,not delayed or verbal actions.poo eating behavior should be eradicated in a few short days.

Stolen? That word is so antiquated. Instead you should say: Someone that is in dire need of it than I am, took it. Simple! wink

I wonder why a dog that is well cared for and taken care of and has all the necessary food provided for at his disposal with prefer to eat poo

My take on this only a hungry dog particularly the local ones which are given little or no care and no available food will adapt to poo eating

I see to reason why a dog if provided with the necessary food he or she needs will prefer to eat something that disgusting

dogs normally do it to keep where they stay clean,u might not have experienced it but after they eat d poo,they use their leg to scrash d ground surface to make sure non is left,they can only do that in their kennel but when they poo outside they will just sniff and go.that's y I said if it continued to do so,then it becomes a habit..
