| I'm not 100% positive but we were all outside running aroung chasing the ball. Buddy went over to do his business which was very nice looking, compact and firm. He walked away and then squatted again to get out a small bit that he missed and he turned around and I saw him eat something. The poop wasn't there anymore. I'm pretty sure Buddy ate a small amount of his own poop.........
This has never happened before, ever. He's about 3 years old and he never had any interest in eating dog feces (cat's are the delicacy!) especially his own! I know from previous research that this can be from vitamin deficiencies. He is showing no other signs that I am aware of. He's more energetic than ever, very silky smooth fur, good coloring in his gums, etc.
As everyone knows I've been in a pinch recently (with relief coming this weekend) and doing the BEST I can. I've been feeding mostly chicken for about 2-3 weeks but have added in turkey, fish, beef and things like duck gizzards, beef/pork heart, eggs, pork feet, duck feet, etc in small amounts here and there that I had stocked up on when I had more money. Should I be concerned about the Coprophagy??
Sorry about asking so many questions lately!!
