Coprophagia Issues in Dogs (Tendency to Eat Stool/Feces)
Although fall and winter Coprophagy is more prevalent, this unsightly habit of stool eating is rather natural, common, and a practice that is a hold-over from prehistoric times; in preparation for the winter months, various animals were known to be prone to this habit.
Stool eating for many dogs can ALSO be due to the lack of important dietary enzymes not found in commercial foods. This adds yet another very good reason why it is so important to supplement their daily diet with either the NZYMES Antioxidant Treats (the Chewable Pet Treats) OR the Granules, to provide important missing components - such as the “living substance” which is normally absent in today’s diets; commercial, raw, or homemade.
For a more comprehensive understanding of how to help your pet in this realm, please see Blackwatch Feed Programsat the http://www.greatdanelady.com/ website you will find a comprehensive diet for your pet. Each feed program recommends the use of Nzymes to provide adequate amounts of “living foods” to provide the necessary nutrients to reduce the need for your pet to eat stools.
Help for Coprophagia
Using Nzymes Antioxidant Treats or Granules every day will provide your pet with the "Live Food Element" which is completely missing form all processed foods. Filling in this missing component from the diet enhances many metabolic functions in the system, and in some instances will cause a dog to cease his quest to fill this need by consuming stool.
