Coprophagy is the term used to describe this common behavior most pet parents dread: eating poop. Bunny droppings, cat-box-treasures, and even their own or another dog’s poop – it’s all fair game. What’s WRONG, is most likely your dog’s diet.
In nature our dogs' relative, the wolf, eats ALL of their prey. This includes organs, blood and even bone. This raw diet contains all the enzymes and nutrients the canine body needs to thrive.
Most dogs generally eat a highly processed kibble diet. Their digestive system can create enzymes, but not enough to completely process this type of food. So guess what happens to all those undigested nutrients that don't get absorbed? You guessed it. Poop.
