My dog (a rescued dog) is very very good. However he EATS everything. Not chews furniture or things like that, but literally EATS swallows and digests his toys. When he is outside he eats everything in sight. We have gone to great lengths to ensure that his play ...area is a safe one, but he digs, and then eats any treasures he finds. I am at a complete loss. He spends the day eating everything and then is sick in his crate every single night. I'm at a complete loss on what to do with him. He absolutely loves to be outside, he loves to sunbathe....but he EATS everything. He actually ate part of his collar one day. Literally ate it....He eats cat poo from stray cats that come in the yard. He eats branches. He digs up long buried things (from before pur time) an old fence....he eats these things. In the house, he eats his tennis balls, his dog toys, he eats his bed, his blanket. And please undersrtand, he literally eats them. chews off bits of them and swallows it! I cannot supervise his 24/7 as I have to work to support my family. I just don't know what to do anymore. He isn't hungry. He is very well fed. He is very well taken care of. He is a small breed dog (mixed). Will leave a bowl of dog food sit around while he eats other things. He will forgoe a chewy for dirt and roots. I just don't know what to do anymore. He is constantly sick, and I just can't take it anymore. PLEASE HELP!
