In desperate need of Help! Dog throws up, the eats dirt.
I have a seven year old Scottish Terrier (male). I noticed several days ago that he looked like he was about to get sick so I let him outside, into the backyard. I watched as he ran over out into the grass and began to dig a hole, he then started to eat the dirt that he had dug up!!!
That following night, and the night after, he left a pile of poop that consisted mostly of dirt, in my sunroom. He got sick a couple of times but it was mostly liquid.
He then appeared to be fine, until today when he got sick again. He ran outside and consumed more dirt.
Why is my dog doing this? I don't know what is wrong with him! Why would he be eating dirt?? I really don't want to take him to the vet because of the cost but it seems to be unavoidable. Please help!!! :(
