Stop Dogs from Eating their Poop

Do you have issues with your dog eating its or a dog friend's poop? This is an extremely gross habit that stresses out many pet parents. Thankfully there are things that can be done to help with this.

S.E.P- Stop Eating Poop by Solid Gold is a supplement that you can add to your dog's diet to stop them from eating their own feces. The active ingredient in S.E.P. is glutamic acid. When this acid is mixed with the stomach acids, the stool becomes bitter to the taste and will deter your dog from eating its stool.

Pineapple- Add a can of pineapple to your dog's food and it will prevent them from eating their stool. The actual pineapple needs to be given, not the just the juice, as the ingredient that helps to deter the eating is found in the pineapple, not the juice.

Canned Pumpkin- While there is not as much support for this, it may be a final option if nothing else has worked.

High quality food- Sometimes dogs will eat poop because they are not getting the nutrients they need from their food. Make sure that you feeding your dog a high quality food that meets all their requirements.

Unfortunately, this will not spot your dog from eating other dog's feces if they too are not ingesting the above items, but you will be able to control the dogs in your household.

Good luck!
