  • Many Dogs Eat Poop to Correct "Digestive Deficiencies"

    Many dogs start eating poop because their bodies are prodding them to correct an insufficiency or imbalance in the digestive process. Perhaps the pancreas isn't producing enough insulin or other enzymes, for example, or maybe the balance of good-to-bad gut bacteria is out of whack.  Dogs don't eat poop because they think it's yummy, but rather because their bodies are urging them to ingest something present in the feces — something that may be missing from their diet.

    It appears often, coprophagia is more prevalent in dogs fed kibble, which is a biologically inappropriate diet that can create a chronic digestive enzyme deficiency. Since the feces of other animals are a good source of digestive enzymes, dogs with a deficiency will sometimes ingest enzyme-rich poop.

    In fact, rabbit poop is a very rich source of not only enzymes but also B vitamins, which is why many dogs, given the opportunity, will happily scarf up rabbit droppings.

    Most poop-eating dogs limit themselves to fresh feces (less than two days old), probably because in addition to digestive enzymes, it also contains the high levels of microbes necessary to regenerate beneficial bacteria in the gut.

    Other Species Also Eat Feces

    If your canine companion partakes of the occasional poop snack, it might make you feel better to know he's got plenty of company. Many species eat feces, including mice and the capybara, the largest rodent in the world.  Guinea pigs also indulge and are good examples of domesticated animals that may eat poop to stay healthy, not because they're sick.   If you happen to have a guinea pig and haven't noticed the behavior, it's probably because the little guys are very quick. 

    Behavioral Causes of Coprophagia in Dogs

    Some dogs, especially those in kennel situations, may eat poop because they're feeling anxious or stressed. Research also suggests dogs who are punished for inappropriate elimination can convince themselves pooping itself is bad, so they hide the evidence by eating it.

    Coprophagia is also a problem in puppy breeding (backyard mill dogs). Puppies who go hungry, are weaned too soon, have to fight with others for food or are forced to sit for weeks in a small crate with no physical or mental stimulation, are at high risk of becoming habitual stool eaters.

    Coprophagia can also be a learned behavior. Older dogs can actually role model poop-eating behavior for younger dogs in the household.

    Tips to Help Curb Your Dog's Habit
    Feeding a nutritionally balanced diet containing human-grade (preferably unprocessed) protein and supplement with probiotics and digestive enzymes to help curb your dog's urge to find less appetizing sources of free enzymes around the yard or in the litterbox. 

    • Feed Diced (cubed) Tinned Pineapple - hand feed twice a day.  Or   if dosent eat if hand feed, add to meals.

    Nutritional Treatment
    Vitamin B1 (thiamin) 100 mg, 100 Veggie Cap
    Open one capsule and add the powder to meals.  Always add a capsule of the powder to every solid meal given. 
    Add a pinch for Toy dogs or cats.
    Trypsin enzyme. (which is found in some good digestive enzyme supplements) e.g Irwin Naturals, Inflamma-Less, 80 Liquid Soft-Gels

    Prevention and Treatment
    Biotin, 5,000 mcg, 120 Veg Capsules
    Adding Biotin vitamin to daily meals can prevent stool eating (and also help treat digestive tract, liver, and kidneys)
    Biotin is part of the B complex group, just open a capsule and add the powder to meals. Twice a day. 
    How does it work?  Biotin is an important component of enzymes in the body that break down certain substances like fats, carbohydrates, and others. biotin is sometimes used for hepatitis, brittle nails, neuropathy, and other conditions. Biotin plays a key role in the body. It supports the health of the skin, nerves, digestive tract, metabolism, and cells. One small study suggested that biotin and other micronutrients helped treat peripheral neuropathy, nerve pain in the extremities that can result from kidney failure or diabetes.

    Malabsorption syndrome
    Example:  Use a little 'Organic Apple Cider Vinegar "  (not white vinegar) -  to every meal given.  
    Toy dogs, small dog: 10 drops,  
    Med dog: 1 teaspoon to 2 teaspoons 
    large dog: 1 tablespoon.
    Can also stir in a tablespoon or more to water bowl or farm trough.


    Restore Gut Flora
    A great idea to work on "healing and restoring good gut flora"  if your pet has ever had any antibiotic drugs or acute or chronic stress in their life.
    Example:   Our Raw Probiotic
    The specific strains in of probiotics such as Lactobacillus acidophilus, Casei and plantarum, Streptococcus thermophilus, and Bifobacterium longum can also be extremely beneficial.  
    PET DOSAGE:  Add a pinch in meals for cats, a toy dog and other small animals.
    Half powder from the capsule for small to med canines and a full cap of powder for large canines. To full restore gut bacteria, flora takes 2 months of probiotic intake.

    As animal age, the production of these enzymes often slows down.

    Deficiencies can also be genetically related, and symptoms will show up among puppies. Common signs of deficiencies are voluminous stools, often with indigested fat clearly visible, animals that eat their own faeces, and animals that are overtly underweight despite big appetites.

    Protease  - is the enzyme that breaks down protein.
    Amylase -  works on carbohydrates.
    Lipase -  is the fat-breaking enzyme.

    Through a report from a veterinarian observation about 70% of patients he found cannot digest food properly.

    One classic sign of a trypsin deficiency is an animal eating its own stool. This is overlooked in many vet practices. Testing the stools for trypsin enzyme deficiencies is recommended.  Trypsin is a major pancreatic digestive enzyme that contributes to the breakdown of protein, fats, and carbohydrates.

    The causes of trypsin deficiency are basically two-fold:

    • Genetic - the problem is a hormonal-immune disorder due to contemporary breeding practices - crossbreeds also.
    • Acquired - Viral and bacterial infection, or an insult to the pancreas, can affect trypsin production. The aging process also slows down the pancreas and often interferes with enzyme activity.
