Why Do Dogs Eat Poop? All Theories Are Equally Unappetizing!

It’s something we dog lovers have been puzzling over for ages. Why, for the love of all things holy and good, are you EATING that?! PBS offers up some theories.

It’s a question that has confounded (and repulsed) even the most ardent dog lover: why oh why, sweet Rover, are you doing something SO nasty?

PBS’ “Gross Science” gives us a host of scientific reasons why your dog may see food where you see feces. All of them are disgusting. But informative. 🙂

Nobody knows quite why, but it may have to do with a lack of specific microorganisms in the dogs gut during the colder months. More can be found here: http://www.dogpoopdiet.com/
