Why puppy eat their own poop

It has been passed two weeks already since we first brought Jessie back. She has growth a bit. At least not losing any weight as she has developed quite a steady meal time. She can eat up to four times a day. That goes the same in her defecation frequency. She would call for attention in her certain parking tone to tell that she needs food or the urge to ease herself.

But something odd we notice. She would eat her own poops. That's pretty gross sight to see, and not normal. We would wash her mouth after that since we are not fast enough to stop it. At least it makes her hygienic.

According to PetMd.com it is a normal behaviour. The following are the some reason that leads to the weird habit:-
1. Curiousity
2. Poor digestion
3. Boredom
4. Stress
5. Hunger


To avoid the possible repeat of this habit, it is recommended to:-
1. Give enough of food
2. Clean immediately after puppy eliminates.
