|In the past week I've been noticing that Marley has been eating mud/dirt when he gets the chance. He will also try to eat some paint chips off of the bottoms of walls and pretty much picks up such things as lint, hair, leaves in his mouth (these however, he does not seem to swallow).
At first I just thought he was being a puppy by chewing on things and getting things into his mouth but he really does eat the mud he gets into his mouth as well as the pieces of the wall/paint chips.
Has anyone had a dog do this before? I'm not sure why he's doing it, maybe some sort of deficiency in his diet?
Today he was having slight diarrhea (his stools are soft and sometimes even just liquid), could this be a result of him eating mud and pieces of the wall? Or maybe something else like worms?
Any help would be appreciated. We are planning on setting up a vet appt. to get him checked out this week.
