Eating soil

Hi. My Bboy has been eating plant soil and has rubbed his behind on the carpet. What does it mean???

Lots of dogs eat dirt… means usually they are lacking in one mineral or another in their food. Scooting the butt usually means that their anal glands are full

Thanks. My both b's are on Duck & Potato diet. Should i be adding something else to their diet?

Not really… mine have done that and I just ignore it.. unless excessive...

But the butt rubbing needs to be address... please search the forum for other posts about anal glands...

Topper loves to eat dirt and he gets a good diet and a vitamin/mineral supplement from the vet. I think he likes the taste!
