Jack has only had a couple of poop accidents in the house but I noticed that he tried to eat it. Eww! I quickly cleaned it up.
Now every time he poops, he immediately tries to eat it. Tonight he went out, did his business, I stopped him from eating it and we went in. 15 minutes later, Jack was lurking near the door so I figured...'sigh, now he has to pee.' Out we go. He ran immediately over to his poop and started gulping it down. EWWW!!!!
Could be it because he got wormed Sat.?
Not enough food? I increased the amount of food. He seems a little too bony and frantic for food. He is on the Wellness Puppy which the breeder used.
Is it a puppy phase?
A nasty Havanese trait which everyone is secretly hiding?
I googled it but there was really no definite answer as to what to do. The only thing that they suggested besides checking with the vet is to be ready to lure him away immediately with a treat. And of course, clean up the poop immediately. I usually do it the next day - in the daylight...
I know I over-reacted tonight but it was dark and there was munching noises and a hideous poop smell. Jack doesn't seem to have minded having his teeth and tongue brushed. Maybe the doggy toothpaste is poop-flavored?
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
