Dogs munching soil

Have you also found your dog eating soil at one time or another? There are several possible reasons for him to do this. It can be due to a deficiency of a mineral substance in his diet. Any diet that is labelled as a complete dog food should contain all the nutrients required by a dog.

Another possibility is that, although his diet is not lacking any nutrients, your dog has a problem with his metabolism that is preventing absorption, preventing the use, or increasing the loss of these minerals.

Although not an emergency, I would suggest that he is taken to your veterinarian. Some useful information to find out before you go to the vet are, for example, the amount that he drinks – has it changed at all (increased or decreased)? Is his appetite normal? Also look for any changes in behaviour. Note these and take the info along to your vet.
