Question by ebonishia: How can I stop my maltese from eating her feces?
I bought my maltese in february and she is eating her own poop..She is grossing me out! I don’t understand. She can have a full bowl of iams right there and after she poops she smells it and eats it. I am afraid she will get sick.i don’t know what to do.. She goes outside and we are not watching her all the time..I found out because she is still pooping in the house. I had a poodle and never had this problem. Please help!

We had a shih tzu/maltese mix and according to my mom, malteses are infamous for doing this. Believe it or not, it shouldn’t hurt her. Your vet may have some answers on how to stop it though…we never figured it out.
