Coprophagia is a condition whereby puppies and dogs consume their own stool. It is a common habit in some dogs which can be distressing for the pet owner and unhygienic for the pet. As many as 16% of dog owners report that their dog has this habit. An abundance of bacteria and parasites found in feces can be a danger to canine health when consumed.
Brad Pattison Pet Wellness Coprophagia Soft Chews have been specially formulated to help deter this behaviour by making the dogs’ own stool unpalatable to eat. These nutraceutical soft chews contain Capsicum Oleoresin, a lachrymatory agent, which deters a dog from eating its own stool by causing a mild irritation to the eyes and a mild burning sensation if the stool is eaten. This natural plant-derived ingredient improves the body’s ability to absorb nutrients, fight infection, alleviate pain, and reduce inflammation. It is a systemic stimulant, regulating blood flow and equalizing and strengthening the heart, arteries, capillaries, and nerves. It is a general tonic and is specific for the circulatory and digestive systems. It has the ability to balance blood pressure, correcting it to a normal range. In the digestive tract, it improves the body’s absorption of nutrients while reducing gas, flatulence, diarrhea, constipation, and other uncomfortable symptoms.
Brad Pattison Pet Wellness Coprophagia Soft Chews contain the active ingredient yucca shidigera which acts as a poop eating deterrent by generally improving the character and reducing the intensity of canine faecal aroma. Studies show that the overall decrease in fecal offensiveness is 26% when canine diet is enriched with yucca shidigera. This natural remedy has also been celebrated for its anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritis effects.
Brad Pattison Pet Wellness Coprophagia Soft Chews contain the active ingredient, glutamic acid, which plays a therapeutic role in digestion, immune health, muscle cells and other bodily functions. It appears to serve as a fuel for the cells on the intestinal tract.
Brad Pattison Pet Wellness Coprophagia Soft Chews also contain probiotics, improving the animal’s digestive performance. All dogs can benefit from probiotics, which aid digestion and modulate the immune system. Probiotics produce short-chain fatty acids which inhibit the growth and activity of harmful bacteria, such as E. coli, Salmonella, and Clostridium perfringens, as well as providing other benefits to the intestines. Just like humans, the majority of a dog’s immune system resides in his gut. The gut is the largest immune organ in the body and contains approximately 70% of all immune cells so keeping your dog’s digestive system running optimally is essential to making sure that he stays healthy, active, and lives a full and healthy life. Giving your dog healthy bacteria may positively impact chronic GI abnormalities, obesity, liver disease, and mood and behaviour disorders. A daily probiotic supplement may also provide some ancillary benefits for dogs such as better skin and coat appearance, a reduction in gas, improved breath, a reduction of allergy symptoms, a reduction in yeast-associated disorders, and help in regulating bowel function. Probiotics for dogs are a safe and effective way to improve your dog's gastrointestinal health.
Brad Pattison Pet Wellness Coprophagia Soft Chews also contain the super-herb, parsley, which freshens your dog’s breath and offers a host of other health benefits. Parsley is high in fibre and a diuretic helping to move food through the digestive tract. Parsley is packed with chlorophyll which helps with blood health. It also improves digestion, the most likely cause of bad breath in dogs with healthy teeth and gums.
Brad Pattison Pet Wellness Coprophagia Soft Chews contain chamomile which has a reputed ability to soothe inflamed intestinal surfaces just as it does the skin, leading to its use to heal gastric ulcers. Indeed, one of the most common uses of chamomile in animal medicine is to soothe and heal irritated intestines in inflammatory bowel disease. Chamomile also possesses limited antimicrobial (antiseptic) properties.
Brad Pattison Pet Wellness Coprophagia Soft Chews functions within the intestine by making your dog’s stool less tasty, therefore, it will not deter dogs from eating another dog’s stool. However, they are an effective behavioural aid in breaking the habit of consuming feces and may deter dog’s from eating another animals’ poop.
