    not true... they also EAT poo... other animals poo... cat poo is the filet mignon of the canine world while horse poo is runner up...

        My youngest has a pooch with intestinal issues. Built him a special high chair so he could eat 'standing up'.

          That's the plan.

            We have a special dish that slows him down a bit. I heard it was better to have a larger dog eat standing up too. We gave food gulper.

            Lunch is on now.

              something I wasn't going to mention, but true...when we had both, the dog used to 'peruse' the litter box when looking for a snack... ...they also like cat vomit
              I think the semi-digested hay is assumed [by the dog] to be a good source of fiber for them, instead of the old 'eat some grass, hack it up on the carpet' trick...either way, horse manure is still one of the best compost additives. When I was a stable [or un-stable] boy in my misspent youth, the stable dogs were also known to roll in the horse manure......although I think this was more to get us to hose them off rather than some sensual exercise.

              Considering how much more sensitive a dog's sense of smell is, I've never understood much of their olfactory related behavior...like butt sniffing and eating gawdawful smelling things.

                I was concerned about that too. He's on a probiotic too.

                You just want to kill any bad, and keep the good.

                What the vet and we are trying to do, is get his digestive issues to normal in a month. I really need to trust my vet(s). . . .
                Yes, you need to trust your vet(s) but conversely he/she needs to earn your trust. Antibiotic overuse is a major problem and using antibiotics to treat diarrhea simply strikes me as a bit odd. YMMV. And for what it's worth, "normal" isn't a word I'd apply to any dog I've ever owned.
