• I caught my dog eating poop. What should i do to stop it or should i be doing something like feeding him more? I’m not sure.

    Hi Adara,
    I recommend that you talk to your local veterinarian about this question. Usually eating feces is a behavioral issue but there can be a medical component in some cases. Your vet can get some more information from you and then recommend the treatment that will be best for him.
