Odd eating habits
(Mill Valley, CA)
Why does my JR-Chi mix eat/chew sticks, rocks, mud clods, and snails? Every evening he brings in a steady stream of inedible objects. Sometimes the branches are over 3 feet long. He breaks the whole thing into 2 inch pieces. We take inappropriate objects away amd replace. I'm worried for his teeth, gums and stomach.
He is a rescued runaway and was very thin and bedraggled when he was brought in. He's healthy and happy now (3 months later) except for this strange diet.
