I’ve had 3 shepherds and all of them have eaten their poop. In the past I’ve tried the usual.. tobacco sauce. forbid etc.. I noticed a product was advertised on this site?? any thoughts? * the way my yard is set up.. it is difficult to pick up after each poop… My dogs ate what I thought were good quality foods. current dog eats Instinct raw boost grain free ..

I don’t have any suggestions, I’m afraid but maybe post in “ask a vet”…
Hugs and cuddles 😘😘🐮💫✨🌟🌹
Eurydice 77kg/170lb Great Dane limping end of April 2016, amputation (right front leg/osteosarcoma) 4 May 2016 6 courses of carboplatin followed by metronomic therapy, lung mets found 30 Nov 2016. 3 courses of doxorubicin, PET scan 26 Jan 2017 showed more mets so stopped chemo. Holistic route April 2017. Lung X-ray 5 May 2017 showed several tennis ball size mets, started cortisone and diuretics. Miss Cow earned her XXL silver wings 12 June 2017, 13 months and 1 week after amputation and 6 1/2 months after lung mets, she was the goofiest dawg ever and is now happily flying from cloud to cloud woof woofing away :-)
Hmm. Wow we’ve never had that issue (“coprophagy”) but I know others have dealt with it so hopefully they will chime in soon. Dogs eat poop for all sorts of reasons, and it could indicate a deficiency of some sort. Have you talked to your vet about it?
Here’s an old forum post about that very subject, with some good tips:

I’m not sure which one you are referring to but it sounds like you might have seen a Google ad. We don’t pick which products go in those. Sorry.
the google ad looked good and I thought I’d read it later since it was endorsed here…
