The Dude and Potting Soil
  • The Dude has been eating soil out of two of my potted plants. As a side note, they're both dracaena varieties; maybe he doesn't like them and is trying to do them in?

    At any rate, I'm pretty sure it's because he's hungry; our vet had us put him on a diet (he's 28 pounds, down from 44). He gets 1/2 cup of in the morning, an 87 kcal dental stick at noon, and 1/2 cup of food with 1/2 cup of mixed vegetables added.

    Has anyone else encountered this with their dogs? If so, what have you done? Any recommendations?

    My pup ate soil out of one of the potted plants on the floor so I just put it on a higher surface.
