Anybody got any ideas on this one or have a dog that does similar?
I have 2 Weimaraner's a dog at 7 1/2 years old and a bitch at 6 years old.
They both live, eat, sleep, exercise & work together. They are both treated the same & fed the same food, wormed and flea/tic treated regularly.
This time of year the bitch develops an appetite for mud, it seems the more rotting leaves in it the better, but any thick mud will do. She grabs at mouthfuls and swallows it.
It never seems to have any effect on her, her poo is unchanged and it doesn't make her sick. It doesn't seem to relate to anything eg coming into season, and if she's missing something in her diet why does the dog not eat mud?
