Can Dogs Get Sick from Eating Deer Poop? Not only is it important for you to make sure the poop didn't cause your dog to get sick, but at the same time, you need to find out why he is eating the poop to begin with.

Do-it-yourself suggestions to help you stop your dog from eating his own poop include:

  1. Coat stools with hot sauce or lemon juice. Add a few tablespoons of canned pumpkin to his food bowl each day.
  2. Add meat tenderizer to your dog's food (it will make the dog waste taste VERY bad).
  3. Keep waste picked up on a regular basis.
