For some strange reason Kobi my 10 year old has started eating the peat out of the garden tubs!!! He has never done this in the past 9 years so why now :roll:
I thought it was some nutrition he may be lacking but according to google this is an 'old wife tale'. Any thoughts?

Hi Kobi and jazz, as long as there is no cocoa mulch in the compost, this is dangerous for dogs, do you know what the contents are, maybe it is the smell or taste that is inviting, blood,fish and bone meal was a delicacy according to our Golden Retriever so we could never use it. An unusual change in eating habits might be worth asking the vet about. Holly has been known to get a mouthful in the hopes there is a stone in it but she dislikes the texture and has to have a mouthwash after.

Thank you Holly's mum - I wonder if its a 'golden ' thing - Kobi has a lot of golden retriever in his family tree :) . It is the gro-bag peat which the tomato are in so no cocoa mulch. I will defo keep a watch on him, apart from that no other change to his eating habit.
