Why do dogs eat their own throw up?


2 Answers

Dogs eat their own throw up because it seems to them to be a food source. When pups are being weaned mother dogs will regurgitate food for their young to help them adjust to eating solid foods.

Dogs usually eat their own throw up because it contains undigested food that still offers nutritional value. It is also a theory that some dogs may eat it as a way to clean up to avoid punishment.
