Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Coprophagia is the medical term for when a dog eats either its own faeces or that of another animal. Food or Medical:  Nutritional deficiency is commonly believed to be one of the main  reasons for poo eating, so it is important to rule this out first.
Sometimes the richer the food that has been eaten the more chance that the dog may find those faeces palatable. I have found that dogs on Burns dog food, rather than other brands appear to eat their own or other dogs faeces more than other dog foods. Medical issues especially in older dogs such as pancreatic or intestinal problems could stimulate Coprophagia. Even overfeeding especially food with a high fat content can sometimes spark this behaviour. It has also been suggested that eating faeces could be an aid in food digestion, in other words a probiotic which encourages healthy flora in the gut. This can work with some dogs will depend on how obsessive the dogs need is to eat the faeces.
Though I have had to treat a number of dogs that are severely Intraspecific Coprophagic. These dogs eat very old faeces or faeces from dogs that are ill from intestinal problems or with very loose stools. The fecal-oral route can also transmit some rather nasty canine viral diseases.  Hepatitis and canine parvovirus are just two of these serious diseases. I would also strongly recommend keeping the dog away from cat faeces because of the risk of organisms such as Toxoplasma gondii which can cause serious and sometimes fatal consequences, including hepatitis, pneumonia, blindness, and severe neurological disorders . Lal the cow’s behaviour might be motivated by a mineral deficiency (though the idea that Lal was a tiger in a past life was also entertained by some villagers) [adjacent screen-capture, from video above, shows cow eating a chicken]. I had a pony who if he was loose in the farmyard when the farm dog was eating would chase the dog away and eat the dogfood which was a mixture of meat and dog biscuits. I tried to avoid letting him do this because I thought it would make him ill but if he got the chance he would always eat it. Possibly stranger even than this: at a small town in the Caucasus called Neutrino several of us saw a cow eating the ashes from a still burning fire.


The only dog I ever knew that did NOT eat miscellaneous stuff was one we had that had survived Parvo.
Swamp Wallabies are believed to eat the contents of birds’ nests (eggs and chicks) found on the ground or in low bushes. Sorry to be so blunt, but it is a fact that credibility-wise, cryptozoologists face an uphill climb at the best of times; thus, you guys simply cannot afford the luxury of having a cavalier attitude regarding (for example) place names. Or using food as a lure though in some cases the dog may combine the lure and praise as something it gets when eating faeces. If he starts sniffing it, give a leash check with something like a Jingler (see my website) or a noise aversion device such as training discs or a plastic bottle with shingle can be rattled. A cat has died in Germany from eating an infected bird; therefore this virus has shown it can cross the species.
The intestinal phase of this nasty disease occurs only in cats (wild as well as domesticated) therefore transmission to dogs is by ingestion of oocysts (in cat faeces) or bradyzoites in some raw or undercooked meat that has not been pre-frozen. Sometimes this behaviour is absolutely deliberate and likely motivated by a need for calcium: antler- and bone-eating is common in deer and other hoofed mammals, and the consumption of seabird chick heads, wings and legs by island-dwelling deer and sheep is well documented (Furness 1988). But, as shown by the studies cited below, bird-eating in bovids and deer may actually just be a fairly normal bit of behaviour that we’re only beginning to document.
When the shooters arrived for their bird the pony had it in his mouth and had already eaten part of it.
I had a dog that would happily pick salmonberries (a local variety of bramble) and eat them with relish. There is also a very detailed description of a duiker at a swiss zoo which regularly caught and ate birds (of course we all already know that duikers eat meat…). One day a crimson rosella fluttered down and picked up a blob of mince and sat there eating it out of its claw.


Red deer Cervus elaphus that eat seabirds seem to deliberately eat the bones only, and carefully avoid ingesting the flesh.
It was amazing that if you drop a bit of paper in India, the nearest cow turns with interest, comes and eats it.
Much was eaten but it seemed underdone inside, so was put back over the fire to cook some more. It spun me out a bit, though I see now that Wikipedia reports that they commonly eat insects and their larvae.
Obviously this would be for dogs that were eating their own faeces, or the faeces of another dog in the same household. And there are instances where elephants have exhumed and eaten human corpses (Spinage 1994). Predation on ground-nesting seabirds by island populations of red deer Cervus elaphus and sheep Ovis.
People went for a walk, and on return found a Swamp Wallaby (Wallabia bicolor) which was sitting in the ashes tearing off chicken meat and eating it. I will spoil the surprise by telling you that the cute little baby chicken gets eaten alive by the big nasty cow. Lots of chickens were going missing and, naturally, it was assumed that roving dogs were to blame. Lal’s owners were thus a little surprised to see the cow sneak up to the chicken coop and to then grab and eat some of the chicks.
