There are several possibilities for the symptoms you are describing in Breezy which is referred to as coprophagia. The addition of the fish oil to the diet could be the cause as it can cause changes in the GI process as well. Another possible concern would be GI parasites that could have come from the new puppy. Maeve is also most likely on a puppy food and sometimes the difference in food can cause a dog to be interested in another pet’s feces. I would recommend calling to discuss with your veterinarian and they can discuss the best treatment plan to prevent Breezy from eating the feces. It would be best to go outside with both pets and to clean up the feces from the yard immediately to help discourage this behavior.
