harm in eating poop?
Can my dog (Wishbone) die from eating his poop?
Dr. Adams responds:
To be perfectly honest with you, I really do not know. I can tell you that I would expect your dog to possibly get sick. Certainly a human being would become very sick and possibly even die from eating dog (and/or human) feces.
I remind you that I am a medical doctor. I am not a veterinarian. Perhaps you would be better off asking your question to a veterinarian.
Dr. Adams is a resident in the Department of Internal Medicine at North Shore University Hopsital in Manhasset, NY. Got a question for him?
