My 4-year-old doberman just started eating poop. I feed him Blue Buffalo grain free, etc. I read about the pineapple but this is not working. How much pumpkin do you add to their food. He gets 4 cups daily of Blue Buffalo. How much Adolph's and does this have any onions in it as this is a toxin to doberman's? There is some OTC products at Petco also for poop eaters but one post said they fed their dog SEP and it caused diarrhea. HELP - I need some advice but I also need to know how much to give to my 80 lb dobie.

Thanks

Try adding two Tums heartburn pills to each meal. Generally you add one spoonful of pumpkin to each meal, but you have to be careful as it can bind your dog up if you add too much.

Unfortunately, it's a common problem and not one that's always easy to solve. Shanoa was not a poop eater until Simon joined the household. Even then, it didn't start until winter, and then the poopsicles became irresistible, apparently. I tried one of the Petco supplements that's supposed to stop it with no results. I have now been giving "Forbid" which has some good reviews. It's too early to know if it's working, but it seems to be doing something. My main strategy is management. I go out with the dogs and pick up immediately so they don't have the opportunity to eat it. We also have a ton of wild rabbits in the yard, and they will eat the rabbit poop. That doesn't actually bother me, for whatever reason.
