My little two turned into poo eaters when I went on vacation and left them home in my husbands care. It took about 3 weeks for them to stop thinking of poo as a food source, and what finally worked was keeping them as well fed as possible. I made their food as yummny as I could--used Gerber Chicken dices on top of there dry food, and soaked the kibble in the broth, they ate like little pigs! Within two days they forgot about eating poo and I slowly backed down on the quantity of food they were getting. It has been a month now and no more poo snacks on the side. I don't know why this worked, but the Deter didn't stop them--just slowed them down, and they would still eat it.

PS Quincy wants it known that he has NEVER eaten poo!
