I'm sorry to hear that your pup is doing this, it can be very frustrating. Eating their own stool can indicate a nutritional or medical issue. You may want to begn by having him into the vet for a wellness check. From there, adding "Forbid" (over the counter in most pet supply stores) to his food may also help. Cleaning up stools as soon as you can will also help to avoid the problem. Some owners have found a decrease in this behavior once they increased their pups daily activities You can read more here: If you need any other information, let me know. -Robyn
