I started putting a couple shakes of cayenne in my elderly dogs' meals to stop one from eating poop and help her better absorb nutrients. They are fed a freeze-dried raw food and are doing well on it but slow from arthritis and hip dysplasia. They are definitely more "zippy" on walks since I added the cayenne. It seems to have stopped the eating poop issue.
Cayenne Pepper cured my Dog's Diarrhea:
I read on your website that cayenne pepper sprinkled on some rice would help my dog's diarrhea. I cooked some plain white rice, sprinkled a small bit of cayenne pepper on it, and fed it to my 120 pound dog.
He normally eats 2 cups of food twice daily. I started with one cup of rice at breakfast and one at supper the first day. Then 2 cups at each meal the second day. I noticed within 30 MINUTES, his stools were beginning to firm up and by the 3rd day he was back to himself! I never had to take him to the vet, this remedy saved me money, thank you so much Earth Clinic!
