I can sympathize- Cocotini is also a poop eater. Yuck!!! I once caught her trying to eat it as it was coming out of Mindy's "behind"!! I had to laugh at that one because Mindy was trying to get away from her and Cocotini was practically glued to her butt. Too funny. I try to be vigilant, but if she disappears and is very quiet- I know what she is up to. She knows she is not supposed to do it so she gets sneaky. I know with her it is not a hunger issue as she will leave her food sometimes (and it may be chicken or something else she likes alot) and turn around and try to eat poop. All I do at this point is tell her "no" and wash her mouth and brush her teeth and hope she will eventually outgrow it. I've tried some of the remedies suggested, changed her food (which seemed to help for awhile), and now I don't know what else to do, so if you come up with something that works-please let me know!!
