Smorgasbord Health Column – What causes your Cravings – Part Four – Coal, Dirt and other strange stuff by Sally Cronin

While I myself have no craving for dirt, rocks, etc. My Campbell has taken to eating such things, and now, thanks to this I have an idea why and have called my vet to consult.
Once again my thanks goes out to Sally for her wonderful info.
Also made me remember that I forgot some things at the store.

  1. Being an older dog, Campbell’s digestion will work less efficiently now, and he might need a little more help.. thanks for sharing hugs xxx

    1. You’re welcome for the reblog.

      We’ve had one digestive issue after another where Campbell is concerned over this past fall and winter.

      I’ve just gotten him settled on a food that agrees with him and now this eating dirt has begun.

      It began a month or so back when my landscape guys dug a hole at my request to plant a plant outside for me.

      They added nothing to it, but when all that fresh dirt was revealed Campbell began to indulge.

      At first I thought it was just a fascination. Then I noted he was getting gravel out of the turnaround in the back.

      Just this morning called the vet and they’ve requested I bring him by for some blood work. So back to the vet we go.

      I also found some things on your foods list that I meant to pickup at the store yesterday which I forgot, but going back on Friday so have added to my list.

      1. I am sure they will discover if there is a deficiency in the blood work Patty.. do please let me know..hugsx

        1. I sure will, and thanks for your interest.

          The other day I got a note from someone who had heard of Campbell’s sickness back in winter wanting to know how he was. I’m sometimes quite amazed at how many people follow the progress of and love my boy.

          Thanks again for the article.
