I'd like some info from those who have used pineapple to curb stool eating. My EPI boy is having a slight backslide causing  all

3 of my boys to start stool eating. I dislike it intensely!

Forbid doesn't work.

How much pineapple per cup of feed? Can I use just the juice, or does the fruit need to be added?

How long before It will start to work, if it even does?

Thanks

Becky

Apple Cider Vinager works well!!!  Use 1/4 cup per gallon water and this will help curb the habit.  There is also to many other benefits to using as well for many aspects of their overall health.  I keep ACV in all my animals water 24/ 7 and encourage others. 

Only a few days into it you should notice an improvement.

I use about 2 tables spoons in my dogs meal. You can also try canned chopped spinach. It works great also. I mix pineapple in one meal and spinach in the other. It seems to work very well.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the quick answers

Apple Cidar Vinagar? In the water? It doesn't effect the taste enough to discourage drinking?  I have heard for years of it's benifit, but never heard of it used for coprophagy.  I'll have to give it a try.

I have not tried that. I am not sure how good that work. I would be afraid that it would make the water taste bad and the dogs not want to drink

The dogs will still drink normal amounts.  I use it in the dogs water as well as the chickens I have.  It will help deter fleas and ticks, help with digestion and nurtient absorbtion, stools will smell less, yeast infections will decrease, it helps with authritus and joint issues, I could go on here about the benefits!   

The only thing I can think of to be aware of - don't use it with metal water buckets or dishes.  Other than that this is one of the safest and best things you can give your dog!

You're very convincing, so much so...... that I now have a very strong urge to drink a tall glass of it myself. LOL
 
I'm thinking of providing that to my pup just for grins and giggles. Do you know if there has been any kind of medical evaluation/report on serving this to a dog? 
 
Any downside or side effects?

I just completed a bit of research and found that there is a ton of info about this on the net. 

 

Thanks for bringing it up.
