Light hearted poo thought!

Post by Patsy » 13 Feb 2020, 07:07

This morning as I dragged my little terrier away from a pile of dog poo, I remembered how Marti and many other epi dogs started as compulsive poop eaters. I thought she just had a depraved appetite. Then I thought, dogs eat grass because they need to vomit, so can’t we also claim that they eat poo in order to give themselves a wholesome good bacteria faecal transplant?
That’s if the good bacteria survived the original doggies digestive acids?
My dogs actually prefer pheasant poo.
Enjoy your meal!
Springer spaniel Marti had Epi, PLE , MMM just to confuse me. She lived till 12yrs, chubby and happy despite eight years of epi.
Capsule enzymes suited her best. B12 supplements made her into a new dog!
After a cocker with PLN kidney disease, I now have two healthy rescues, a lively, suicidal , small ginger terrier, adopted with pneumonia, and gum disease needing nearly all his teeth out, and a fluffy grey toy poodle/terrier from Greece.

Boone has eaten his own, so now I only walk him and quickly pick it up. Peacock poop is his favorite though, he runs to every brown spot on the street hoping to find his favorite treat. It’s so gross, and I worry about what these.birds could carry but I can’t possibly catch each one before he does, though I do try.
