When dogs eat their own vomit, dog owners are often disgusted by this behavior and can't come to terms with the fact that their best friend engages in such a repulsive behavior. To make matters worse, sometimes dogs seem even eager to eat their vomit or even the vomit of other dogs and cats sharing the household. What's up with these dogs?

Many dogs eat sticks which often leaves dog owners baffled and wondering what this behavior is all about. When trying to understand the underlying motives for some odd doggy behaviors, it helps to carefully evaluate the context in which the behavior occurs and whether it's accompanied by other signs.

Many puppies and dogs go crazy after eating and dog owners often wonder what's going on with their canine friends. It's not like they are eating sugar-loaded candy as it happens with toddlers getting a sugar high, so what gives? Interestingly, there are several possible explanations for this behavior.
Dogs eat cat food for a simple reason: dogs find cat food to be an appealing delicacy that is difficult to resist. If Rover is stealing Miss Kitty's food though, you may want to take some steps to discourage this behavior. While it's still nutrition, dogs are built differently than cats and therefore have different nutritional requirements. Not to mention, it's not nice for your dog to deprive your cat from needed nourishment, and secondly, consider the fact that cat food can cause problems to your dog, especially when consumed frequently or in abundance.
