Poop repel tasty soft chews will help discourage dogs from eating their own poop, or other dogs’ poop if they are given the product as well. The technical term for stool eating is Coprophagia. (Co-Pro-Fay-Jee-A) It may sound like a delicious Italian dish but we assure you it is not! Most dogs have this disgusting habit due to the lack of natural enzymes that work to properly absorb the nutrients in their food. The stools give off a smell that dogs crave when they are lacking these nutrients.
