To the Vet Tech: How do I get my dogs to stop eating their (and each others) poop. It is repulsive.
My dog used to do this. It was reccomended that I put a bit of pineapple in my dogs food. This worked GREAT. Add a little bit of crushed pineapple to your dogs food. It really does work!

I am putting my 2 cents in, as I have been in this situation before. I had a springer that would eat his poop and others as well. I was told by a vet that the reason is they do this is they do NOT digest all their food. When they poop, they smell left over food and think they should eat it. Some dogs don't digest some dog foods as well as other dog food. Now we feed 2 dogs ORIJEN. We have also fed science diet, which is a well known brand of food that dogs do digest most all off it and poop less. Since I have had them off commercial food and NO table scraps, the problem for us is a done deal! You can buy these foods at most pet stores but they are a little pricey but worth the hassle and they look and act like champions.
