Giving Vitamins: If your dog is eating poop because they are not getting the essential vitamin and minerals in their diet, you can give them a daily vitamin supplement. These are usually in the form of a tasty treat that your dog will love.
Giving Enzymes: Digestive enzymes that contain amylase and lipase will help your dog’s food break down easier. This will help your dog absorb these nutrients and feel fuller.
Giving poop deterrent products: There are certain poop deterrent products that you can get from your local pet store to help stop your dog from eating their poop. Most of these products contain monosodium glutamate, chamomile, derivatives of a pepper plant, yucca, or parsley. Other things that you can try are adding pineapple or meat tenderizer that contains papain to their food. Some people will even follow their dog around, and when they poop, sprinkle their poop with hot sauce to help deter them from eating their poop.
Picking up Poop Right Away: As soon as your dog poops in the yard, pick it up so that they cannot eat their poop. Many times, after a few weeks or months of doing this, you have broken them of their habit of wanting to eat their poop.
Keeping the litter box out of reach: Some dogs will only want to eat kitty poop. Keeping the litter box in a hidden area away from your dog’s reach will help. Even using a litter box lid or putting the litter box up on a counter so that your dog cannot reach.
