Eating dirt

I have two dogs, one cocker spaniel and one bull mastiff, both are fed on a natural raw diet with no preservatives and I am unable to get them to stop eating dirt from my yard. Any ideas on why they are doing this?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
There seems to be some division of opinion on why dogs eat dirt but it seems to be fairly common; some say it's a mineral deficiency, some say not, but there could be no harm in supplementing their excellent diet with a good quality vitamin/mineral formula to see if that might help.

I've tried that and it didn't help, but I appreciate your reply, thank you.

Calc. carb might be tried for your pets.

Most interesting. Did some research and one of the things calc. carb is good for is eye infection and my cocker spaniel has uveitis - which is an inflammation of the eye, if we can't heal this it will progress to glaucoma and she will lose her eye. Another thing Calc. carb is good for is eczema, which my bull mastiff has as well as arthritis. I will definitely be giving this a go. Thank you for taking the time to reply.

You're welcome cassiefoley. You may start with 6c and up the potency till 200 giving sufficient gap. It's a great remedy that will positively help your pets in most problems.
