• We have a new Schnoodle at home. She is about 13 weeks old. Since we took her home 3 weeks ago, she eats grass, dandilions, and her own poop. Is she missing something in her diet? Currently she is Blue wilderness puppy canned food 2 times daily and then she has dry food (Natures Variety Instinct) always out in a bowl. She always has water, bones and other toes to play with.

    Hi Susan, I recommend that you talk to your local veterinarian about this issue. Eating things like you are describing is likely more of a puppy behavioral issue than it is a dietary need. Your local vet can recommend any treatment that she needs for this. If it is a behavioral issue they can work with you on a behavior modification plan that is specific to her.
