It’s a stomach churning sight for us humans, but many dogs like to eat poo, otherwise known as Coprophagia; the eating of faeces or dung.
Horse manure, cows pat, cat poo, fox poop and even other dogs’ faeces are common favourites. But surely our dogs don’t do this just to make us feel nauseous?
So, why exactly do our dogs eat poo? A common misconception is that this means your dog has a nutritional deficiency. However, since this is a common behaviour among our four-legged friends, it is more likely that your dog simply enjoys the taste!
