Dog Eating Feces Solution

Cat feces are not a gourmet treat for your dog to eat.

Q. Why does my 1-year-old Chihuahua eat cat feces and how can I stop her?

Dr. Jon GellerA. Your Chihuahua looks at cat feces as a gourmet dessert treat. Unfortunately, cat feces can be laced with unhealthy bacteria, viruses and other parasites, so I would recommend that you deny your dog access to the litter box. Eating cat feces is probably not a life-threatening risk, but it certainly could take some of the pleasure out of the kisses that your little dog lays on your face.
